Mobvoi, a leading voice AI company, is launching the TicPods 2 Pro+ after the success of the original TicPods 2 Pro at CES earlier this year. The new TicPods feature an independent connection, so you can hear your music with only one earbud, have added two new Quick Commands, and come with an upgraded case design.
Mobvoi enabled the TicPods 2 Pro+ with independent connections to each earbud by Single Pairing technology updated from the latest Qualcomm ADK, which combines synchronization, selective data relay, role-swap / handover, and enhanced robustness for a class-leading truly wireless experience, it also brings Smart Role-swap / handover to balance the battery of two earbuds, to extend battery life when using both earbuds.
Mobvoi’s popular touch controls, giving users with the ability to interact with audio and control the volume by swiping up or down, summon their voice assistant or accept/reject a call, have also been improved. As a part of the new independent connection, each touch panel and volume slider on TicPods 2 Pro+ earbud can be used independently.
Quick Command 2.0: now with “volume up” and “volume down”
Powered by Mobvoi’s innovative in-house AI algorithms, Quick-Commands enables a hands-free experience with your incoming calls and audio. Originally launched on the TicPods 2 Pro, Quick-Commands cuts out the wake-up word to give you a very direct and natural way to interact with the device–users can interact with their audio by saying “play music”, “pause music”, “next song” and “previous song” or accept or reject incoming calls by saying “pick up” or “hang up”.
This new upgrade features two new Quick-Commands: “volume up” and “volume down”. These two new Quick-Commands complement the TicPods 2/2 Pro’s unique touch control panel: not only can you slide up or down to change the volume, but you can now say it as a Quick-Command.
More premium case design
Mobvoi decided to update the design to give the TicPods a more premium feeling. While keeping the wavy design, Mobvoi’s design team added a metal component to elegantly display the product’s name on the top of the lid of the charging case.
