Today, Mobvoi Inc, backed by Google and Volkswagen, launched their new truly wireless headphones, the TicPods Free on Indiegogo. The AI-powered earbuds are compatible with any mobile assistant across multiple mobile devices. If you back them during their pre-sale campaign, you’ll be able to cop these headphones for only $59, much cheaper than the anticipated retail price of $129.
TicPods Free will be compatible with Android and iOS. They’ll also be compatible with Google Assistant, Siri, and Amazon’s Alexa. One of the neatest features of the TicPods Free is that they’ll have intuitive side touch panels, which unlock user control via gestures. You can swipe up and down to control volume, double tap to answer/end a call or skip to the next song, and long press to either reject a call or activate your mobile assistant.
The TicPods Free will also include some premium features like automatic in-ear detection, call audio in both ears, noise cancelling technology, and a noise isolating design. Built in are 96 dB SPL speakers and an extended battery that lasts 4 hours on a single charge and can be completely recharged in 40 minutes. When combined with the portable charging case, the batteries will give you up to 18 hours of battery life! The TicPods Free will be IPX5 rated for water resistance and will be available in red, blue, and white.
