TicPods Free

In addition, the company officially launched their first true wireless earbuds, TicPods Free are true wireless earbuds that successfully raised over $2.8M through a crowdfunding campaign earlier this summer.

Today, Mobvoi announced their much-anticipated retail launch on mobvoi.com and Amazon (US/UK) with an MSRP of A$199 – available now for online purchase.

TicPods Free combine the latest developments in wearable software and hardware into one device with exceptional design. Features include:

  • Android and iPhone compatibility
  • 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 volumeDouble tapping on the pods to answer or end a call; when not on calls, double-tapping will skip to the next song in your playlistLong 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 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 colors – white, blue, and red

Mobvoi is setting itself apart in the wearables space through award-winning design, and the innovative integration of artificial intelligence within its line of products. Their TicWatch line is the top selling Wear OS by Google smartwatch line on Amazon.
