AirPods insight: Mobvoi TicPods 2 Pro +
Can the AirPods Pro wrap up now? Competitor Mobvoi has presented new wireless headphones that not only want to convince at a low price. A look at the details quickly makes it clear that Apple is still ahead of the game.
Mobvoi TicPods 2 Pro +: New in-ear headphones
After the TicPods 2 and the TicPods 2 Pro, the manufacturer Mobvoi has now presented a new version called TicPods 2 Pro +. The wireless headphones are supposed to compete with strong competition from Apple – but whether that can succeed is open to doubt. Where the differences to the TicPods 2 Pro presented in January 2020 are supposed to be, only becomes clear at second glance. In any case, there have been no real changes to the design. In terms of sound, the manufacturer has not given its new in-ear headphones any new functions.
The only new thing is that the Mobvoi TicPods 2 Pro + can receive voice commands without the owner first had to say the wake-up word for the TicPods 2 Pro +. Among other things, the volume can be changed without having to touch the small headphones directly. Before, there were only commands that could be used to play, pause, or skip songs. It is not yet clear whether the feature will also be submitted with a software update for the TicPods 2 and TicPods 2 Pro.
In addition, the single pairing technology of Qualcomm has been adopted for the TicPods 2 Pro +. The earplugs can therefore also be used and controlled individually. This is complemented by the function that the touch elements can be configured separately for each in-ear headphones. The battery life of up to 4 hours per charge has not changed. Automatic noise cancellation (ANC) is also not part of the game.
