Drowned out by the competition

from Android Central

Mobvoi's latest true wireless earbuds try to turn a bunch of interesting ideas into a fully-fledged product, but fail to capitalize on the fundamentals of what makes a good pair of headphones.

A worthy competitor to the AirPods

The TicPods 2 Pro checks a lot of boxes, but it's lacking a couple of major ones like active-noise cancellation and a more comfortable fit.

The TicPods 2 Pro checks a lot of boxes, but it's lacking a couple of major ones like active-noise cancellation and a more comfortable fit. Their charging case, though small and compact, has questionable durability with its flimsy lid. Still, the TicPods 2 Pro are a worthy competitor to the AirPods if you're looking for something to use on an Android smartphone.

Offer a few atypical features and a very compelling price tag

from TrustedReviews

The TicPods 2 Pro are a solid set of true wireless earphones, if you're a fan of open-tip designs. Issues with their noise isolation and fit make them ill-suited for gym use, however.

A solid, solid option

 I’d put these up there with the Galaxy Buds. They are quite different, though. The Galaxy Buds really tuck into your ear and can be sealed, while the TicPods 2 Pro can’t give you that same experience. They still sound great, don’t leave you feeling like your ears are plugged, and almost disappear as you wear them because of their weight. So they are different, but as good, if that makes sense.

AirPod dupes at a lower price

from TechRadar

Mobvoi promises an awful lot with the TicPods 2 Pro, including noise cancellation, gesture controls, and built-in artificial intelligence. Unfortunately, these true wireless earbuds don’t quite deliver on these promises, but they could make a decent pair of buds for casual listeners who don’t want to fork out for a pair of Apple AirPods.

Mobvoi's latest brings improved means of interaction and advanced audio

from ZDNet

The headset is not inexpensive, but the audio performance and design justify the price. I expect a software update can improve the TicHear direct voice commands.

The headset is not inexpensive, but the audio performance and design justify the price. I expect a software update can improve the TicHear direct voice commands. These commands are not essential, but if this experience cannot be fixed then some kind of touch control gesture to play/pause music is essential. In addition to outstanding music playback, calls sounded good on the headset.

You're paying for a unique feature set rather than grade-A sound quality

The Mobvoi TicPods 2 Pro brilliantly allow users to access their preferred virtual assistant hands-free, thanks to TicHear's "Hey Tico" functionality. This is great for Google Assistant and Siri junkies who don't want to shell out for first-party products. That said, you're paying for features here as audio quality and fit leave a lot to be desired with these pocketable 'buds.

Good sound, but a fit that's not for everyone

Aside from the questionable AI functionality, there’s a lot to like about the TicPods 2 Pro.

Aside from the questionable AI functionality, there’s a lot to like about the TicPods 2 Pro. The fit isn't for me, but for those who like AirPods-style hard ear tips, these are a compelling cheaper alternative. Since call quality isn’t outstanding even with the dual-mic noise cancellation, and only the “Hey Tico” wake word of the AI features is truly useful, I’d be inclined to recommend getting the TicPods 2 model that doesn’t have these so you can save a bit of money.

You no longer need Apple's H1 chip for hands-free Siri access

The Mobvoi TicPods 2 Pro are commendable for their novel approach to an overflowing sea of true wireless earphones. The lightweight build of the earbud and case make these a great portable companion if you’re able to keep them in your ears. Sure, you could spend your money on objectively better earphones out there, but then you’d be missing out on the latest marriage between AI and consumer audio.

Come with voice control that doesn’t need a wake word

from Expert Reviews

The TicPods 2 Pro headphones are certainly an interesting product. They’re tiny, lightweight and should be super comfy – the perfect antidote for anyone who wants a more general-purpose headphone for calls and the like – and the instant voice control, if it works well, is a really interesting feature.
