Answer calls, talk to Google Assistant, and more.
Ever since Apple released its AirPods in 2016, there's been a constant hunt for a comparable alternative for Android phones. Many have tried and failed, and now Mobvoi's taking a stab at this niche with the TicPods Free.

You'll find two separate earbuds that aren't connected by any wires, and they can be placed in the included carrying case for easy recharging when you're not using them.

5 reasons you should buy Apple's $30 earbuds instead of the $160 AirPods

6 days ago   |   By Business Insider

Apple's wireless earbuds, called AirPods, are one of my favorite gadgets right now - and one of my favorite Apple products ever.
That said, AirPods are not for everyone.

EarPods cost $30.
AirPods cost $160.
2. Music playback is more limited with AirPods.
Apple's wired EarPods have physical controls on the wires that let you play or pause your music, and control the volume , but they can also fast-forward songs (double-tap center button and long-press...
