Xiaomi is trying to milk more money out of its mobile gaming brand, Black Shark, by introducing tons of new accessories.

These Black Shark accessories are a perfect match to the Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro smartphones — both in their gaming-centric functionality and design. The ecosystem keeps growing and growing, now with the addition of the Black Shark Ophidian Gaming earbuds.

Being a gaming peripheral, the Ophidian has RGB lighting on each earbud. Complete with different lighting effects depending on your preference. You can control the lights, plus the equalization and other settings, via a dedicated smartphone companion app.

But more than that, the Ophidian’s claim to fame is its 50+ms low latency transmission. Black Shark claims that it’s the world’s lowest latency earphones, and even created a graph comparing it to the Razer Hammerhead and OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2.


The Black Shark Ophidian Gaming earbuds use large 10mm Dynamic Drivers. Partnered with its in-ear design, it should provide clean audio with deep bass.

It’s also rigged with a large battery that can provide 10 hours of music playback, which you can extend to four hours more when you turn off the RGB lights.


The entire body is IPX4 waterproof, for you outdoorsy types out there. The buds clips magnetically when not in use. It also has dedicated volume controls, USB Type-C port for charging, and connects to your device via Bluetooth 5.0.

The best part is, the entire thing only weighs 22g.
