The TCL Moveaudio S600 is a pair of new true wireless earbuds made for users who want a powerful audio wearable to go by their day-to-day life. TCL has priced them at €149 (~$182) and will launch them in global markets next month.

The Moveaudio S600 features noise canceling that could be of great help to daily commuters. Although these earbuds have noise-cancellation for an immersive audio experience, they do not entirely block the outer interaction to keep the user aware of their surroundings. The Moveaudio S600 true wireless earbuds also have a transparency mode enabling the surrounding noise to penetrate through an audio filter using the microphone. An IP54 rating makes these earbuds water and dust resistant.

Connectivity options on these earbuds include Bluetooth 5 with support Google Fast Pair offering effortless integration with Android devices. The battery on these earbuds provides a backup of up to 8 hours on a single charge. The backup goes up to 32 hours if users keep the buds intact in the charging case for running full charging cycles.

They also have Google Assistant integration that enables seamless playback management. It also has smart wear detection that pauses the playback automatically whenever the users take them off.
