Users will be able to choose between balanced noise reduction, for environments such as cafes or parks; mild, for offices or libraries; and deep, for situations of high noise congestion such as subway or airplane travel.

And, as in other proposals of the brand, it will be possible to choose the transparent mode to listen to the sounds of the environment without stopping listening to music. This includes a “voice enhancement” option for talking to another person with the headphones on.

Xiaomi explains that the aforementioned features are made possible by the “cooperation” between three microphones present in the Xiaomi Buds 3. The algorithm takes the combined sound to reduce noise and enhance the voice as needed.
