Connection quality

I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with LDAC.

 

I don't know because I haven't been in crowds, but it is stable in the home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. Communication is never interrupted, even across obstructions, and music can be heard consistently.

 

There may be a small amount of background noise, but most people probably won't notice it.

Sound quality description

The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with an LDAC connection.

 

The Xiaomi Redmi Buds 4 Pro has a near neutral sound signature.

 

Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.

Lows / Bass

The low frequencies of the Xiaomi Redmi Buds 4 Pro are balanced weaker than the midrange in terms of presence.

 

Drums have some heft there, but the kicks are shallow, and the overall sound is light and tap-like. Rumble is quite weak.

 

The electric bass also sounds bright and lacks breadth.

 

Basically, this is not for low frequency lovers.

Mids

The midrange of the Xiaomi Redmi Buds 4 Pro is near neutral and the texture is quite accurate.

 

The midrange center is carefully tuned to push the midrange to the forefront, giving a sense of brightness and transparency, but with a slightly less contoured feel to add mellowness and a gentler ear feel.

 

The midrange sounds lush, bright, and detailed, with high resolution, and instrumental sounds are quite lively.

 

The midrange sounds light due to a lack of weight. The sense of detail is a bit weak but adequate for listening, and the sense of construction is hardly lacking.

 

There is a slightly tinny, metallic tendency that tends to come out easily, and depending on the volume and song, vocals may feel a bit shouty.

Highs / Treble

The high frequency range of the Xiaomi Redmi Buds 4 Pro has excellent extension.
Overall, the highs are a bit less energetic than the mids. Overall, it is smooth and well-tuned, but lacks a lot of subtlety.

 

Due to the lack of subtlety, cymbal crashes have a rather harsh feel, and the glare is strong, so it does not give a very clean impression. It sounds wild at best, vulgar at worst.

 

The violins and woodwinds also tend to sound a bit hysterical and less than elegant.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original sound fidelity: A-
  • Recommendation: A
  • Personal preference: A+

 

The Xiaomi Redmi Buds 4 Pro does not seem like a bad choice for those who want to hear more detail in the midrange. The sound balance seems a bit better on the Redmi Buds 3 Pro, but the resolution is improved and the overall performance is better.

Sound quality features

Pros

  • Good sound balance
  • Comfortable to listen to
  • Good texture
  • Good localization
  • Excellent high-frequency extension

 

Cons
  • Lacks weight and depth in low frequency range

General comment

The Xiaomi Redmi Buds 4 Pro are relatively high-performance earphones that support the high-quality sound codec LDAC. The sound quality is a bit bright and quirky, but the sound balance is generally good, and the model is quite well put together considering the price. However, the degree of freedom of customization through apps is not very high. For example, the EQ can only be selected from presets, and control customization is limited.
