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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
