After announcing that it will be launching the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro in India on July 17, Chinese smartphone and consumer electronics manufacturer Xiaomi has today announced that it will be launching a new pair of headphones in India on July 15.
The announcement has been made on Twitter by the company’s official Indian handle, with the hashtag “#BreakTheWire” and “#MiSuperbassWirelessHeadphones” along with an image of the headphones; clearly Xiaomi isn’t trying to hide anything other than the price at this point.
Prepare to #BreakTheWire. Because the #MiSuperbassWirelessHeadphones are almost here. Launches on 15th July, midnight, on https://t.co/D3b3QtmvaT & @amazonIN.

According to the image embedded in the tweet, the headphones have a decidedly sporty look, and will come in at least a black and red color scheme. The image also mentions that the headphones will have a 20 hour battery life, and will come with 40mm drivers, which is par for the course for headphones of this size; although I’m sure Xiaomi will price these much lower than other headphones with 40mm drivers.
On the Amazon page for the headphones (yes, there’ already one), the company mentions that the headphones will have deep impactful bass output, and that they are “made for bass lovers.” The page also claims that the headphones will have superfast Bluetooth connectivity with no compromise on sound quality which leads me to think they’ll come with aptX support and maybe Bluetooth 5.0 for faster and better connections.
As mentioned earlier, the Mi Superbass Wireless Headphones will be launching on July 15, Midnight, and according to Mi India’s tweet, will be available on Mi.com and Amazon India for a yet to be disclosed price.
