Mobvoi launches over-ear “TicKasa ANC Headphones” with active noise cancellation for $130
Mobvoi may not be a household name in the technology space, but we’ve written about a lot of its products. The company has been making some of the best affordable Wear OS smartwatches for a while, and more recently, the company broke into the wireless earbuds space. Now, Mobvoi has released the TicKasa ANC, the brand’s first-ever over-ear headphones with active noise cancellation.
Since the TicKasa ANC headphones are over-ear, they have cups that fit over your entire ear. This larger design allows the headphones to pack in more high-quality audio features than a typical set of wireless earbuds or earphones. They feature 5 microphones and, of course, active noise cancellation.
The headphones can get up to 30 hours of playback on a single charge (20 hours with ANC enabled). Unfortunately, though, charging happens over a micro USB port. The TicKasa ANC supports Bluetooth 5.0, has the Qualcomm QCC3031 chipset, and supports the aptX HD Audio and AAC Bluetooth audio codecs.
Mobvoi is offering the TicKasa ANC headphones in black and gray for $130. That’s a very reasonable price in the world of active noise cancellation headphones, though the micro USB port is a bit disappointing. If you’re looking for something other than wireless earbuds, these may be worth a look. They are available for purchase now from Mobvoi’s website.
