​​The Xiaomi Buds 3 are wireless headphones. The wireless connection allows absolute freedom of movement and with that increases the comfort of using the headphones. This feature is very popular, especially when using headphones every day. The limiting factor of wireless headphones is a certain delay in the sound transmission between the source and the headphones (almost indistinguishable for a normal user), as well as the need to charge them (in the case of wired headphones, the headphones are recharged by connecting the cable itself). The technology used for the sound transmission used by the headphones is Bluetooth 5.2. The maximum range of the headphones is up to 10 m. This range represents the distance from the sound source at which the headphones with wireless sound transmission can be used. However, the maximum range may be affected by obstacles such as walls or people, etc.

The headphones are designed as in-ear. In-ear headphones are plugged directly into the ear and they normally offer complete or at least partial isolation from surrounding noise. The degree of isolation also depends on whether the headphones have an ambient noise isolation function. Their indisputable advantage is that they are more compact than over-the-head headphones.

These headphones have a battery capacity of 38 mAh. In terms of headphone battery life as a significant factor in the purchase decision, it depends on what you want to use the headphones for and potentially how often you will be able to recharge them. Headphones with up to a few hours of battery life are more suitable for home use as they will require more frequent charging. Headphones with a battery life of around 10 hours or more are already more suitable for commuting and shorter journeys. However, nowadays you can also find headphones on the market that have a battery life in the higher tens to hundreds of hours. In this case, you do not have to worry about your headphones simply running out of power on longer journeys, and you will not have to deal with constant recharging. The battery life of the Xiaomi Buds 3 reaches up to 7 hour(s).
