Never mind that Xiaomi Buds 4 is already selling in China because, outside of China, we have the Xiaomi Buds 3 Star Wars Edition. The Xiaomi Buds 3 Star Wars Edition is essentially the white model of the Buds 3 with some interesting Star Wars cosmetic touches.
On the charging case, you have the Star Wars logo and an image of the Stormtrooper helmet. On the earbud, it now rocks a black accent, a black silicone earbud, before rounding up with an Imperial logo blended with the external microphone. If I can be honest, the latter is not the prettiest. It looks like a smudged Imperial insignia to me. Just saying…
The cosmetic does not end there. Both the earbuds and the charging case are made with a variety of special techniques that improve the feel and also added an extra layer of protection against scratches.
And what’s a pair of Star Wars-themed earbuds without some cool sound effects? That said, the Xiaomi Buds 3 Star Wars Edition boasts original custom voice prompts for successful Bluetooth connection, in-ear reminders, connection interruption, and low battery reminders, with a unique sound to further immerse you in the galaxy far, far away.
Finally, the pop-up on the phone when you flip open the charging case cover will recognize that it is pairing up with the Xiaomi Buds 3 Star Wars Edition. Unfortunately, it does not have a custom graphic (on the pop-up) like the Redmi Buds 4 Harry Potter Edition has.
Wrapping up the Star Wars/Stormtrooper theme is a very collectible Star Wars/Stormtrooper packaging, Stormtrooper-theme documentation, and charging cable.
Beyond those, the Xiaomi Buds 3 remains the same as the regular set. It promises to deliver Hi-Fi sound quality from its “super sensitive dynamic driver, and features support for Google Fast Pair, active noise cancellation up to 40 dB, 3 ANC modes, Force Touch Sensor the stem of each earbud, up to 7 hours of earbuds battery life, up to 32 hours when used with charging case, and the support for wireless charging.
If you live in the U.K., you may pick up the Xiaomi Buds 3 Star Wars Edition now for £99.99 (about US$124 based on today’s going rate).
