Mobvoi is back with a new Indiegogo campaign for TicPods Free true wireless earbuds
Now that various Android OEMs have launched phones without headphone jacks, purchasers have had to reluctantly concede that true wired-free earbuds want to be a thing. And they are, with a few compelling options accessible from the likes of Jaybird, Bose, and Zolo (with the aid of Anker). They’re nonetheless by no means reasonably-priced, however, so it is exactly the proper time for the TicPods free from Mobvoi to go into the fray.
Movboi’s TicPods free are, just put, true wireless, AI-powered earbuds that are like minded with voice assistants, along with Google Assistant, Siri, and Alexa.
TicPods Free True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Features
Android and iOS compatibility
Google Assistant, Siri, and Alexa compatibility
Intuitive side touch panel – enables users to control their audio by touching the side of the earbuds through gestures, including:
Swiping up and down on the stem to adjust volume
Double tapping on the pods to answer or end a call; when not on calls, double-tapping will skip to the next song in your playlist
Long pressing for two seconds to reject calls; or, when not on calls, to activate your phone’s voice assistant
Automatic in-ear detection –allows TicPods Free to know when you’re listening so that audio automatically plays when both pods are inserted into your ears while removing either will pause your audio
Call audio in both ears –hear and be heard more clearly since both earbuds will be broadcasting rather than just the right one
Noise cancelling technology – the mics in each earbud are engineered to deliver the best possible call quality through advanced digital ambient noise reduction so you’re heard clearly on calls
Noise isolating design – hear more clearly as the ergonomic design of the earbuds block out outside noise so you can focus on what you want to hear; two sizes of silicone tips will come in the box so that various ear canal sizes are covered
95dB SPL speaker– provide louder overall volume while saving on power usage; this is especially useful when taking calls in noisy environments
Extended battery –A single charge lasts 4 hours, requiring just 40 minutes of charging before reaching full capacity, and when combined with its portable charging case, gives you up to 18 hours of battery life
IPX5 rating– Water resistant to rain and sweat
Award-winning design – TicPods Free boast Red Dot and iF product design awards
Available in three colors –white, blue and red
