Mavin has announced the Air-X, which the company says is the first true wireless earbud to last 10 hours with one standalone charge, and up to 50 hours with its included charging case. It’s available on Indiegogo with “super early bird” specials starting at $99 (44% off the regular price of $179).
The Air-X offers up to 50 hours and a 10-minute quick charge for one hour of play. The case weighs less than 4.5 grams per earbud. Air-X also features voice assistant (Siri, Google), call audio in both ears, Qualcomm cVc noise reduction technology and built-in ANC (Active Noise Cancellation, Air-ANC model only, launching Q1 2019) to support clear voice call quality.
The Air-X’s patented antenna design provides a long and wide-range signal reception designed to enable highly reliable wireless connection from pocket-to-ear, and ear-to-ear, according to the folks at Mavin. Air-X’s ergonomic stabilizer and ear tips secure the earbuds in the ear for comfortable, all day wear, they add..
The Mavin Air-X earbuds are powered by the latest Qualcomm low-power Bluetooth Audio SoC, QCC3026, which supports Bluetooth 5 and, Qualcomm aptX audio technology. The earbuds implement Qualcomm TrueWireless Stereo Plus, eliminating the need for cross-head Bluetooth transmission by simultaneously connecting the mobile device to both earbuds.
When paired with Air-X and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform, Qualcomm TrueWireless Stereo Plus can purportedly help reduce power consumption by up to an additional 10%. It supports an even simpler pairing experience when connecting earbuds to the mobile device and helps reduce latency because both buds are connected directly to the smartphone.
