Today (August 13, 2020), Mobvoi launched its latest Earbud Gesture product on the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo. The OEM was able to score its goal twice over within the first hour of this project going live. The TWS devices in question are rated for up to 50 hours of battery life with their case.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

Mobvoi has announced that its new Earbuds Gesture TWS earbuds have attracted twice their Indiegogo funding goal in the first 30 minutes of this campaign's existence. In fact, it has now been about 3 hours since this debut, and the accessories' level of funding is now at about 650% its original $5000 aim.

These AirPod-clone-style earbuds are in reality a lot like their OEM's pre-existing TicPods 2 Pro, complete with these devices' gesture-based controls (a user can nod their head to answer a voice-call while wearing the Earbuds Gesture, or shake their head to reject one). However, the newer models differ in their finish (black and glossy) and in their maximum battery life (rated at 50 hours when their charging case is taken into account).

The Mobvoi Earbud Gestures are also IP5X-rated and charge via USB type C, but lack fast charging. The OEM has determined that they will be priced at US$65 (or half their eventual retail price) for the first 24 hours of their new Indiegogo project.

Alternatively, they come bundled with the TicWatch Pro 2020 for $279 (as opposed to their regular combined price of $389) on this platform.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
