Xiaomi / Amazon

China-based gadget maker Xiaomi is bringing more of its products to the US this week. Two headphone models, a 10,000mAh Mi Power Bank Pro, a 360-degree camera, and a robot coding kit are all coming to Amazon. This continues the company's slow march toward wider device releases in the US.

Xiaomi currently sells its Android TV set-top box, Mi TV, at Walmart locations around the US, and previously launched items in its Mi online store for the US, including a fitness tracker, battery packs, and headphones. Those devices sold out within 30 minutes.

The Amazon-listed battery pack and 360-degree camera are already temporarily unavailable, while both of the headphones don't go on sale until November 24th. I'd assume these will sell out too, given that everyone needs headphones and apparently everyone also has a desire to buy from Xiaomi. The Mi Headphones fit over the ear and cost $129.99, while the Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro cost $25.99. I wish Xiaomi had instead decided to sell USB-C headphones or wireless ones in the US, but this is a start. Maybe its smartphones will eventually make their way stateside, too.
