Ever since Apple’s Airpods were released, the Android market has been on the hunt for a proper competitor. Over the last year, we have seen quite a few different options arrive. But none may be more intriguing than the new TicPods Free.
The TicPods Free come from Mobvoi, the company behind the TicWatch. As for what these AirPods competitors offer, the list is extensive:
- In-ear detection
- Intuitive touch controls
- Noise isolation
- Voice assistant support
- Ambient noise cancellation
- 18-hour battery life
- IPX5 water resistance
Moving back to the battery life, the advertised 18-hours comes from both the headphones and the case. The TicPods Free themselves are advertised as having a 4-hour battery life. This is expanded to up to an extra 14 hours with the included charging case.
Now for pricing, the TicPods Free will sport a retail price of $129. However, if you head over to the Indiegogo campaign, you can pick up the TicPods Free for $79.
At the time of this writing, almost 1500 units have been claimed at the $79 price level. Then, the next tier is priced at $99, which is still a savings of more than 20%.
What is rather surprising is just how quickly Mobvoi has reached its goal of $50,000. Currently, the campaign is sitting at almost $290,000 thanks to the help of more than 3000 backers.
