Mobvoi have debuted a pair of new true wireless earbuds that evoke the colorful design of their predecessors and the features of their biggest rivals.

The new TicPods 2 and TicPods 2 Pro both feature Qualcomm's AptX audio tech, an in-ear design, "Tickle" controls and in-ear detection. Essentially, where the earlier models focused on nailing the basics, the new TicPods dare to throw in a few fresh thrills.

The TicPods 2 offer up to 4 hours of continuous playback and up to 23 hours of battery life. The TicPods 2 Pro feature a slightly-lower overall usage of 20 hours but boast support for head-gesture controls (letting you nod your head to take and refuse calls), wake-word activation, TicHear quick commands for your voice assistant of choice and dual-mic noise-cancellation.

Both headphones also come with quick pairing, Bluetooth 5 connectivity and an IPX4 dust and waterproof rating. The charger case here is also 42% smaller than it's predecessor. You can read our review of the original TicPods here.

Australian pricing and availability for the TicPods Pro and TicPods 2 is to be announced.
