🎧 We are reviewing the Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro 2 / Quantie 2 (QTEJ03JY)

The Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro 2 / Quantie 2 (QTEJ03JY) features a dual hybrid configuration with 1x balanced armature and 1x graphene dynamic driver.

The Xiaomi QTEJ03JY have a metal construction simliar to the Xiaomi Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones, Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Neckband Earphones, Xiaomi Mi Noise Cancelling Type-C Headphones but with a slimmer profile than all of them.

The cable of the Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro 2 / Quantie 2 (QTEJ03JY) is half-braided, half-rubberized; being braided the section from the 3.5mm plug to the cable bifurcation and rubberized from the bifurcation of the cables up to the connection with the earpieces. The 3.5mm plug has a small size and an L-shape. The right cable holds a 3-button remote/mic, made also of metal.

The Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro 2 have 3 official names:

  • Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro 2
  • Xiaomi Quantie 2
  • Xiaomi QTEJ03JY

Feeling confused already? you are not alone, most people and even resellers get/sell/promote Xiaomi headphones wrongly. As to clear up things and avoid confusion, we are listing you some of the names that we have seen online wrongly naming the Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro 2:

  • Xiaomi Mi Hybrid Pro HD 2
  • Xiaomi Hybrid Pro 2
  • Xiaomi Mi Hybrid 2
  • Xiaomi 2 Hybrid Pro HD
  • Xiaomi Pro 2
  • Xiaomi Hybrid Earphones 2 Dual Drivers
  • Xiaomi Hybrid 2 Circle Iron 2 HD
  • Xiaomi Hybrid Earphones 2 horn

To better understand the internal name of this model, let’s do a brief history reminder. The first hybrid headphones from Xiaomi were called Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro and internally were also named Xiaomi Mi Quantie, later on Xiaomi launched a triple driver earphone named Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro HD (most commonly found as Xiaomi Mi Pro HD) which was supposed to be the newer version of the Xiaomi Mi Quantie but no reference of the “Quantie” name was done. With the release of the Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro 2 / Quantie 2, it’s model naming indicates that this is the true successor of the Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro / Quantie and not the Xiaomi Mi Pro HD. We already leaked this to our readers when we exclusively announced the fresh release of the Xiaomi Quantie 2.

As if there were still any other further doubts about the relation between the Xiaomi Mi Quantie and the Xiaomi Mi Quantie 2. At plain sight, it can be seen that the housings of both models are very similar and not as thick and rounded as the Xiaomi Mi Pro HD. Another detail that shows their inheritance is the remote/mic which has the same exact design, construction and looks as the Xiaomi Mi Quantie.

B

Bass & Sub Bass

The Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro 2 / Quantie 2 (QTEJ03JY) bass is beautifully tuned, with a balanced sound that offers solid mid-bass punch and deep sub-bass but not boosted nor anemic. Not many brands and/or models are able to achieve this level of balance that does not fall into neither of the extremes, well done Xiaomi. Do not expect a basshead bass style.

Applying an EQ, they can be pushed into bassy territory with strong increment of punch and insane addition of depth to it’s sub-bass.

During our extreme basshead tests, the Xiaomi Quantie 2 managed 45% of a Fiio E12 Mont Blanc maximum power becoming hugely more profound sounding and punchier with a mild basshead rumble and impact. Expect something way below the Sony MDR-EX650, Sony MDR-EX800st, Pioneer SE-CX8 or KZ ED16/KZ ZS7.

M

Mids & Vocals

The Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro 2 / Quantie 2 (QTEJ03JY) mids have very clean sounding mids with clear male vocals and alive female vocals. Lower mids do not suffer from strong mid-bass bleed but overall offer nice warmth. Higher mids are crisp and clear but not harsh.

With an EQ there is an outstanding clearing up of vocals, superb reduction of mid-bass bleed.

Highs & Treble

The Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro 2 / Quantie 2 (QTEJ03JY) highs are bright, open and resolve a fair amount of detail. Piercing highs are not an issue with these and are not a fatiguing sounding earphone despite a very mild sibilance presence.

An EQ gives them a great brightening of their highs and substantial additional detail is resolved.

Sound Leak

The sound leaking out of the Xiaomi QTEJ03JY is somewhat higher than on some average earphones. Not that they leak sound like an open-back headphone but will probably not be the best choice for usage in libraries while listening to music at high volume settings.
