Mobvoi has previously released other earbuds such as TicPods 2 Pro. These new buds have a smaller charging case design but a bigger battery for the buds themselves, and the company claims they can last 10 hours on a single charge.
The buds are the company’s first black pair of earphones, with the design fairly AirPod-esque but with silicone tips to create a seal with your ear. There’s also dual-mic noise isolation to bring down the noise when on a call, but there is no active noise cancellation to block out external noise like you might find on more expensive products like AirPods Pro or Samsung Galaxy Buds Live.
With an IPX5 water and sweatproof rating the buds could be a good option for sports and the gym, provided they stay in your ears.
Mobvoi is launching the Earbuds Gesture on Indiegogo with a launch day special price of just US$65. They will then go up to the RRP of $130.
