Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY
| Bluetooth | Balanced Armature | Dynamic Driver |
🎧 We are reviewing the Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY, the latest Bluetooth headphone from Xiaomi.
The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY features a dual driver hybrid configuration with 1 balanced armature + 1 dynamic driver inside each earpiece. With the technological development of budget Asian earphones in the last 2 years, a dual hybrid driver is not as unusual as it used to be but the Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY feature also a wireless Bluetooth connection with a neckband design.
The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY construction quality is outstanding with an overall premium feel that extends from their smooth, rubberized neckband to their solid metal housings with a pearled finish. Each end section of the neckband is made of metal with the same pearled finish as the housings; on the left neckband end section you will find 3 buttons: 2 volume buttons and a multi function one.
Moreover, the rear section of their housings have a magnetic system that allows them to attach to each other while not being used.
The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY housings inherit a mixed form factor, size and fit of 3 Xiaomi headphones: the spectacular Xiaomi Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones, the Xiaomi Mi Pro HD and the Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro. These Xiaomi earphones are well-known to offer superior fit and comfort (besides their great sound quality) so we expect a similar level of comfort.
Like most Xiaomi headphones, the Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY have a long model name and can be found under different names. The model name is called Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones but it is also officially named Xiaomi LYXQEJ01JY, other examples of Xiaomi’s headphones with multiple naming are the:
- Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro – which are also called Xiaomi Mi Quantie Pro Hybrid
- Xiaomi Mi Dual Driver Earphones – also named Xiaomi BRE01JY
- Xiaomi Mi Piston Fresh Edition – also found as Xiaomi Mi Piston Huosai 3
- Xiaomi Mi Piston Basic Edition – internally named Xiaomi Mi Piston Housai 2
- Xiaomi Mi Piston 3 – much less typically known as Xiaomi Mi Piston Housai
The Xiaomi LYXQEJ01JY belongs to the latest generation of Xiaomi’s in-ear headphones that are manufactured in association with TiinLab Acoustic Technology like the Xiaomi Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones, instead of the older generation of headphones that were made by 1MORE.
The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY are compatible with Android and Apple devices.

Accessories & Packaging
The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY unboxing results in 3 pair of eartips and a charging micro USB cable; everything is packed in a nice packaging with a transparent cover that makes them look like a necklace.
Bass & Sub Bass
The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY bass is very rich with super punchy mid-bass and profound sub-bass. Their mid-bass is highly energetic and will fulfill anybody’s bass needs, no bassy genres will remain short of bass with the Xiaomi LYXQEJO1JY.
The strength provided by their bass adds a full bodied and fun kick to any track.
Applying an EQ there is an insane amount of depth added to their sub-bass and an even much punchier profile is unleashed.
Honestly, unless you are specifically looking for this effect we would recommend approaching an opposite EQ aimed to calm down their mid-bass and sub-bass. If you do so, the overall sound quality of the Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY will improve drastically.

Mids & Vocals
The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY mids are very warm with a clearly perceivable mid-bass bleed. Lower vocals are laid back and gentle with some congestion due to their bass bleeding strength. Higher mids sound clear and offer enough crispness while remaining free of harshness.
A rough and general EQ clears up their lower vocals fairly well and reduces a substantial amount of mid-bass bleed resulting in a much less congested sound. Higher mids can be pushed for extra crispness and will also respond nicely without getting harsh.
Highs & Treble
The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY highs offer some brightness with a general dark tint generated by the expanding mid-bass presence. Detail is sufficiently resolved and can be perceived despite the not-so-extremely bright tuning. Overall their highs are smooth and not fatiguing at all that will be a pleasure for treble sensitive people.
If a high amount of dB boosting is applied by an EQ, they will gain a big quantity of detail and their brightness will vastly improve; sibilance will be introduced but only mildly. This EQ benefit will only show it’s results if you push the EQ’s dB a lot.
The sound that leaks out of the Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY is about average, not absolutely silent to nearby people but neither too disturbing on normally noisy situations.

Noise isolation is very efficient, with a fairly strong reduction of surrounding noises, independently of the volume level set.

The neckband of the Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY are thicker than others that we have recently reviewed (like the Bluedio T ENERGY) and you might fear that it could be too bulky or uncomfortable but Xiaomi was able to design it quite well with a resulting outstanding comfort thanks to their rubberized but smooth and pleasant to the skin finish.
In addition to this, their housing’s inherited shape from Xiaomi’s recent models and their angled nozzles give them a highly comfortable fit that makes them wearable for hours without a single discomfort or pain issue.

Response to Equalization
The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones LYXQEJ01JY hide behind their strongly mid-bass centered, laid back mids and darkish highs a superior, refined sound quality but to extract this from them you need to apply some advanced Equalization aimed to strongly reduce mid-bass and sub-bass, feed up all mids, leave untouched ranges in the 3.5kHz to 5kHz and cranking up anything from 5.2kHz to 24kHz. The sound signature makeover will be extreme with an absolute opposite style and a more audiophile tuning.
The Xiaomi LYXQEJ01JY are one of the headphones that showed the most drastic results in their sound signature modification after the use of an advanced custom EQ.
