True wireless earbuds with advanced touch controls so you can spend less time on your phone screen.

Mobvoi Inc., a leading artificial intelligence (AI) company backed by Google™ and Volkswagen, is launching a new wearable in their line of products. TicPods Free are AI-powered wireless earbuds, compatible with any voice assistant across multiple devices. They will be available for pre-order on Indiegogo, with limited early bird pricing set at $59, a deep discount on the MSRP of $129. Shipping for campaign preorders will begin in July 2018.

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

  • Android™ and iOS compatibility
  • Google Assistant™, Siri, and Alexa 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 the 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 canceling technology – the mics in each earbud are engineered to deliver the best possible call quality through advanced digital ambient noise reduction so you’reheard 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 upto18 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
