Mavin Inc., based in Arcadia, CA, says its new Air-X true wireless earbuds can last for up to 10 hours per charge, and up to 50 hours using the included pocket-sized charging case.
The earbuds use Qualcomm's latest chipset, and can quick charge for 10 minutes to get up to an hour of play time. They employ a lightweight design, at less than 4.5 grams per earbud, and work with Siri and Google voice assistants.
They include Qualcomm cVc noise reduction technology and built-in ANC (Active Noise Cancellation, Air-ANC model only, launching Q1 2019) to support crystal clear voice call quality.
The 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, says Mavin. The ergonomic stabilizer and ear tips secure the earbuds in the ear for comfortable, all day wear.
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. Air-X implements 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 help reduce power consumption by up to an additional 10%. It supports an even simpler pairing experience when connecting earbuds to the mobile device, says the company, and helps reduce latency because both buds are connected directly to the smartphone.
"With today's mobile lifestyle, consumers want a solution that's high-performing, comfortable and compact for all-day use," says Mavin's CEO. "That's why we worked with Qualcomm's next generation TrueWireless Stereo technology for reliable Bluetooth connection, long lasting battery, and great sound."
"We are pleased to have worked so closely with Mavin to help them integrate our latest low-power Bluetooth audio SoC into their Air-X earbuds," adds Anthony Murray, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Qualcomm Technologies International, Ltd. "This breakthrough platform combines Qualcomm TrueWireless Stereo, Qualcomm aptX audio, and Qualcomm cVc noise reduction technology to help meet increasing consumer demand for superior audio quality, while also supporting significantly extended battery life and playback time."
The Mavin Air-X true wireless earbuds are available on Indiegogo with Super Early Bird specials starting at US$99, which is 44% off the regular price of US$179.
