If you are on the lookout for a pair of TWS earbuds with ANC, then these Kickstarter funded earbuds just might be the one for you. In this article, we will be having a look at the Mobi TWS earbuds that provide AI-powered hybrid active noise cancelling technology.
AI-Powered Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation
One of the key selling points of Mobi has to be the AI-powered hybrid ANC technology. If you aren’t aware of what Hybrid AI-Powered ANC is, let me explain it in simple terms. ANC provides total noise cancelling at all times by using microphones placed outside the earbuds and cancels out all the noise before it reaches our ears. On the other hand, hybrid ANC has a microphone placed on the outside as well as on the inside of the earbuds. The feedforward mics pick up the ambient noise from the surrounding, while the feedback mic listens to what you are listening to on the earbuds and cancels out the noise that didn’t get passed through the feedforward microphone.
Now, this is where it gets interesting. Mobi claims to be the first TWS earbuds to provide full frequency noise cancellation. It features 6 feedback and feedforward microphones, 3 on each earbud compared to the 2 standard microphones available on other hybrid AND earbuds. This allows the earbuds to capture and cancel noise at any frequency leading to total soundproofing.
Now if you are outside and want to be aware of your surrounding while also not having to compromise on your listening experience, you can enable the Transparency Mode. Transparency Mode allows you to stay vigilant of your surroundings by allowing critical sounds to pass through the listener’s ears while still blocking off the unnecessary noise. Transparency Mode uses the two feedforward mics and the AI to recognize over 6000+ unique sounds. The important sounds are amplified to make sure that the listener is always aware of what’s going on in the background.
Design, Fit, and Touch Control
Mobi is ergonomically designed by ergonomic engineers to perfectly fit each ear. The custom made silicone tips reduce pressure and seal properly to ensure a proper fit. There are 3 sizes of silicone ear tips included in the box so that it fits the users ear easily. The earbuds are designed to fit in your ear canals properly even during intense workouts or while running. There are no physical buttons on Mobi as all of the functions are controlled via touch commands. Mobi also has support for Google Assistant and Siri accessible through a simple touch command.
Massive 12mm Audio Drivers
Oh boy! Mobi definitely did not compromise here with the audio drivers. Most TWS earbuds, even the newer ones have drivers sizes in the range of 4-8mm. But the developers behind Mobi decided that it is not enough and went ahead with a whopping 12mm driver. A larger driver produces stronger sound waves which result in improved bass and clarity.
Mobi has an amazing 100-hour battery life. With a single charge, the earbuds provide around 10 hours of playback time without ANC, and 8 hours with ANC enabled. The charging case holds an additional 90 hours of battery life which is just insane considering how little you have to charge these bad boys. Mobi supports Type-C fast charging and Qi charging. With a 15 minute charge, you can expect around 6 hours of playtime.
Mobi is IPX6 certified, which means that it can resist high-pressure and heavy sprays of water. This makes it usable under a shower or if you are looking to go out for a jog while it’s raining outside.
From all the information that I could get out from the press release and the Kickstarter page, Mobi seems like an excellent choice for anyone that is looking to purchase a pair of TWS earbuds. In fact, Mobi is so confident about their product, they are even offering a 30 day no questions asked return policy along with a 2 year warranty period. Mobi was funded within 1 hour of their launch, so you know that the hype is real. So go on and grab yourself a pair of Mobi earbuds while it’s available at a discounted price from www.mobiearbuds.com.
