Mobvoi Earbuds Gesture – Price
When writing this review, a crowdfunding campaign is happening; after that, the expected price is 130$. The price is not very promising but let’s wait and see if Mobvoi will sell this product for that much.
Mobvoi Earbuds Gesture – Unboxing
The unboxing experience is acceptable—nothing extraordinary, a good-looking box that opens like a book cover. Inside, we have some leaflets and stickers; we also have some Ticwatch stickers portraying another quality product from Mobvoi. Gesture controls are also mentioned in the user manual.
On the other side of the box, we have the Mobvoi Earbuds Gesture. The buds are inside the charging case. We also get two pairs of exchangeable ear tips of medium and small size. I wish they included the large one because both of them doesn’t fit in my ear.
External Aspects and Build Quality
Earbuds are truly beautiful; the matte black externals and glossy inside make up a great pair. The charging case has a matte exterior. Both of them are visually appealing.
But the build quality is not excellent. Both the case and buds are made from plastic. The plastic of the case seems to be a lot cheaper than the earbuds.
The build quality of both items can be improved, and more colours can be included in the lineup as the buds are only available in one colour.
- Bluetooth: 5.0 with 10m range.
- Battery: 90mAh battery in each bud and 600mAh battery pack.
- Speaker: 6mm high-quality speaker with noise cancellation.
- Microphone: Dual mic array.
- Weight: 130grams with charging case.
- Water Resistance: IPX5 water resistance.
- AI assistance: Google Assistant and Siri.
- Multi-Touch Control: Yes.
- Single Bud Operation: Yes
Mobvoi Earbuds Gesture – Gesture Control
The gesture control is incredible, like how convenient it is to accept a call just by a couple of nods. Mobvoi gestures can do two things with gesture controls. One, two nods will receive the ring, Second, two head shakes will decline the call.
Gestures worked OK. In my test, the buds detected the motion 5 out of 6 times. It’s a matter of getting used to the gesture controls. The gestures are beneficial for joggers and sportspeople as they can conveniently receive and decline calls.
Mobvoi Earbuds Gesture – Sound Quality
Mobvoi Earbuds Gesture is using a small 6mm driver, which has some effects on different frequencies. But the overall sound is pretty good, and some fine-tuning can significantly enhance the sound quality of the earbuds.
The mic performance is also promising, and the calling experience is pleasant.
The battery life is simply incredible. I am using the device for two weeks now, but I haven’t got the chance to test it for more than 3 hours, but I left the buds on playback for a few hours, and the results are quite positive. The 90mAh battery is performing exceptionally; it has one of the best battery endurances.
Mobvoi Earbuds Gesture – Connectivity
Connecting the buds is pretty straightforward. Mobvoi has an app that you can download on iOS and Android. You can use the app to connect the buds with mobile quickly. I have some issues with the connection, but everything is good afterwards.
Mobvoi Earbuds Gesture – Drawbacks
These are the drawbacks of the Mobvoi Earbuds gesture.
- No colour option.
- App has some issues and bugs.
- Only Small and medium ear tips come in the box
- No, multi-device support.
I think the product is a fantastic addition for people who often work with gloves, keep their hands wet, or dirty and traditional earbuds with touch controls won’t give them the freedom to control their calls properly. Sound-wise they are OK. Build quality is fine, too much plastic for my perception and having just a one-colour option is not good.
