Mobvoi is a tech brand best known for its WearOS smartwatches, the TicWatch, but it also has other accessories that float around the mobile ecosystem. Like their TicPods headphones, of which we have already had some previous samples. Now, the firm presents a new copy for its catalog, TicPods 2 Pro + arrive.
The evolution of the TicPods 2 Pro that we met last 2019 lands with a feature that is highly demanded and that finally lands on the firm’s catalog: the Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. But in addition, the headphones offer some advantages in terms of codecs if what you use is an Android, thus leaving iOS users a little below. They only enjoy AAC.
One hour of autonomy with five minutes of charge
AAC audio codecs for iPhone and iPad users who opt for these new Mobvoi TicPods 2 Pro +, while if you have an Android you can enjoy AAC, of course, but also from SBC and aptX signing Qualcomm. A curious decision that makes these headphones more attractive to users of the Google ecosystem, no doubt.
Not surprisingly, the TicPods 2 Pro + arrive with Qualcomm’s QCC5121 at the helm of the options, which makes the difference. We are talking about wireless Bluetooth headphones, this time 5.0, compatible with voice commands and also have touch gestures. Somewhat limited, yes, but we can pause and play the sound, in addition to controlling the volume.
The new TicPods 2 Pro + arrive with IPX4 protection with water, so they are not submersible but they are appropriate for sports, and with a fairly recognizable cane shape at this point. The headphones have a carrying case that doubles as a charger, with a USB Type-C port, and offers an additional 390mAh.
The manufacturer does not offer specific data on the autonomy but it does indicate that we will have one hour of use with only five minutes of charge. The TicPods 2 Pro + arrive in navy blue and white and put a foot in the market to $ 139.99, approximately € 119.
