To power on the device and set it to pairing mode you simply need to take the earpieces out of the battery pack, to turn them off reposition them in the battery pack.
LED Status Light: Both earpieces of the Xiaomi Mi AirDots have a small light that indicates the status of the device. Moreover, the battery pack has it’s own light to inform the charging status and battery level.
The top cover of the battery pack is semi-translucent allowing the see the light of the earpieces through the battery pack (while closed), therefore being able to control the charging status of each earpiece.
Charging: The Xiaomi AirDots Basic are charged through the micro USB connector on the back of the battery pack. To charge the earpieces you will need to put each one in the battery pack and plug the battery pack to a charger.
A full charge provides 4 hours of continuous use and the combined time with the battery pack makes them reach a respectably long duration of 12 hours.

Accessories & Packaging
The Xiaomi Mi AirDots Basic TWSEJ02LM unboxing results in 3 pair of eartips, a charging cable and the battery pack.
The packaging is small and clean looking with mainly white design.
Bass & Sub Bass
The Xiaomi Mi AirDots Basic TWSEJ02LM has a very punchy bass and respectably deep sub-bass.
Despite this, they do not feel excessively bassy nor out of control. Their mid-bass and sub-bass provide a fun and entertaining experience without getting over-boosted.
Their lower frequencies will cover up any genre without issues and, still, they will not overstep their mids and highs.
Applying an EQ, there is a crazy empowerment of sub-bass and noticeable extra punch is added.

Mids & Vocals
The Xiaomi Mi AirDots Basic TWSEJ02LM lower mids are warm and relaxed. Male vocals are laid back and a bit distant but not overly congested.
Mid-bass bleed is not extreme but can be perceived.
Higher mids are crisp but not too forward, yet harsh and disturbing peaks can pop up from time to time.
Overall, their midrange will be relatively acceptably achieved for a true wireless earphone aimed for average consumers.
With an EQ, male vocals and lower mids can be fine tuned for a much more cleaner response but be careful of not overdoing it to avoid some boxy vocals.
Higher mids should not be EQ’ed too much as they are already on the edge of becoming forward.
Highs & Treble
The Xiaomi Mi AirDots Basic TWSEJ02LM highs resolve some of detail and have a brightish tuning but with a slight darkening over them.
Sibilance will sporadically show up on some tracks but more often on others and according to it’s peaks range can vary from a mild sound to a more fatiguing one – the same applies for piercing highs.
We would not rate them as smooth nor gentle but neither overly fatiguing (depending on each listener’s tolerance to peaks on the higher end)
An EQ can help to open up their highs and remove a noticeable amount of their darkish tint.
The sound leaking out of the Xiaomi AirDots is substantially less than many normal earphones, yet they will be heard by nearby people on more quite environments.

The sound isolation provided by the Xiaomi Mi AirDots Basic TWSEJ02LM is quite impressive, even more given their tiny earpieces. Absolute isolation can be easily achieved by simply cranking up the volume a bit.

The AirDots have the tiniest battery/charging pack that we have ever seen, which makes them extremely portable and pocketable.
In addition to this, their earpieces are very small too, in fact they are the smallest true wireless earphones that we have tested.
The small and curvy earpieces make them extremely comfortable and pain-free. At the same time, the inner main section of the housings is rubberized, providing a super secure fit that will never fall out of the ears.

Response to Equalization
The response to EQ of the Xiaomi Mi AirDots was efficient on lower frequencies & lower mids but can also introduce some additional harshness and fatiguing peaks.
