In the connected world, the majority of us have some form of streaming account. Whether that’s visual media, audio or both, but poor sound can make the experience terrible. Many of the headphones you can buy are very expensive which makes acquisition cost-prohibitive for some users, but Mobvoi may have an offering to consider. The TicKasa are their new ANC, over-ear headphones that have big sound (Qualcomm aptX™ HD Audio) and 30 hours battery life.

Mobvoi has delivered great value for money hardware in the past with the specs of the TicKasa suggesting that trend will continue. As already mentioned, they have included the Qualcomm aptX audio capacity. The audio quality and low latency will work beautifully through the Bluetooth 5 connection which will (on paper) give you around 15 meters range.

The active noise cancellation is driven by dual-microphone on each ear to give excellent noise suppression. This plays well into the call handling as well to ensure that not only you but also the person you’re talking to have clear, clean sound by filtering out the background noise.

Bad batteries create buyers remorse, that won’t be an issue here

We’ve all had good devices with terrible battery life and it destroys the experience. The 800mAh battery that powers the TicKasa ANC Headphones will give you around 20 hours listening or talk time with ANC enabled or around 30 hours without. But here’s the rub… Charging takes approximately 4 hours via MicroUSB.

The appearance and materials that have gone into the TicKasa have been chosen for longevity and comfort. Breathable mesh, soft ear cushions for a comfortable fit and minimising the weight which is a measly 300 grams. Unlike some of the other budget-friendly options on the market, the TicKasa Headphones come with a carry case which is great for protection of your investment.

If this is sounding you can pick up a pair from the Mobvoi site for a relatively affordable AU$189.95.

Yeah I was pumped for these till I see that micro USB plug. I’ve got loved onto USB C and I’m not going back!

All their other products use USB C so I think that this is just a rebadged product they have actually put very little of their own resources into.


MicroUSB in 2020 come on ppl
