I'm looking to buy the new Redmi AirDots 3 Pro bluetooth earbuds.

Currently they are only available in China, but will likely be released Globally as Poco Pop Buds/Redmi Buds 3 Pro.

My questions:

Does matter which version of the earbuds buy (Chinese version or Global version)?

Anyone have experience buying Xiaomi Chinese version bluetooth earbuds and getting it to work in Xiaomi.EU or Global rom?

Hi!

Yes, it matters.

First of all, both the global and Chinese versions are the same product and have the same audio quality.

but there are some pros of buying the Chinese version:

You'll get the product earlier since every Xiaomi product is first released in China.

And, you'll be able to use XiaoAI (MiAI) app. This app allows you to update your earphone's firmware, and also to configure the button's action (You could configure them to go to the next and previous song).

This app is only compatible with Chinese airdots, not with global versions (It's kinda weird, but that's how it works)

So, long story short, if you buy the Chinese version, you'll have a few more functionalities.

I bought Airdots 3 (Non-pro version) recently. As far as I know, the audio quality and connectivity are pretty much similar to the airdots 3 pro, but they'll have wireless charging and active noise cancellation.

Regular Airdots 3 doesn't have these two features, but they're more affordable and have better battery autonomy.

doesnt matter as much. same audio quality(audio quality is all that matters right? who cares about those ai updates)
sometimes, those apps can actually improve audio quality, connection stability, and battery consumption. There will be some improvements, so I don't think those updates aren't important at all.

But anyway, the difference in audio quality between global and chinese won't be anything impressive or incredibly high

Just waiting for some reviews, will probably wait for the Poco version.

Apparently voice prompts are in Chinese on the Redmi version.
Not necesarily, You can use either XiaoAI and Google Assistant on the Redmi Version

XiaoAI is only available in simplified mandarin

But Google Assistant is available in every language, so that isn't a problem at all. You won't even have trouble configuring anything, because the earphones will use google assistant if it is your default audio assistant. So nope, you won't have problem with chinese voice prompts

Is the app to control the AirDots 3/Pro only in Chinese text?

What about Voice Prompts as Low Battery, or Phone Numbers when an incoming call.

And, you'll be able to use XiaoAI (MiAI) app. This app allows you to update your earphone's firmware, and also to configure the button's action (You could configure them to go to the next and previous song).
I have Samsung Galaxy S7, and I want to buy the new Redmi AirDots 3 Pro.
I can install the XiaoAiLite_qr App (latest version 2.10.20) from this link.
(The standard version (Mi Ai) that I downloaded from apkmirror cannot be installed on my device).
The app works (all in Chinese of course).
My question is will I be able to use the app with the Airdots 3 Pro, even though my device is not of xiaomi.

The ear buds should be working with other brand phones, but in case if the app does not work, or some issues appears, better ask how to solve issues in your phone forum.

People here can't solve your issue, unless they have Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung phones to test on or had some experience on Samsung phones.

There are 2 XiaoAi lite app translate into English, but maybe not updated, you have to test it yourself.

Firmware updates can be critical to audio quality.
Took Samsung over a year to fully dail the Buds/Buds+ in.
The difference is very noticeable, night and day.
Apparently it -is- rocket science🤣🤭
