There’s something altogether cool about TicPods wireless earbuds. There’s the fab engine red colour and the streamlined look and feel about them as well as the magnetic holder they come in.
Then there is the story about how it all came about. You see the company Mobvoi successfully raised over $2.8M through a crowdfunding campaign earlier this summer. Now, you can buy these wireless earplugs through Amazon (US/UK) for $199 AUD.
They are comfortable to wear and easy to use with four hours of battery life and ideal for sporty types as they are water resistant to rain and sweat. And we particularly like the noise cancelling feature.
TicPods Free combine the latest advancements in wearable software and hardware into one device with exceptional design. Some of the features include:
- AndroidTM and iPhone compatibility
- The Google Assistant and Siri 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
- 95 dB 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 colours – white, blue, and red
