There’s no such thing as an Apple launch without a bit of controversy and this year’s event was no exception. We already knew that the Cupertino-based manufacturer was planning to ditch the 3.5 mm jack, but, on the other side, we had no idea about their plans to introduce a pair of wireless headphones as well.
The AirPods were intensely criticized, mostly due to their design and price, but in the end, they’re a pretty nice option for those of you who don’t like wires. But what if we told you that there are a couple of very interesting Apple AirPods alternatives out there?
Like always, we did a bit of research on Amazon and came across some very interesting models.
Ok, so if you ask us, these are the smallest AirPods alternatives we’ve seen! Using Bluetooth 4.1 with an advanced audio decode technology, you can connect them to your smartphone, as well as other compatible devices, and enjoy an unparalleled sound quality.
Thanks to the compact conductive portable charging system, the Rowkin Headphones will never run out of battery, as the dual-function portable charged allows you to charge them wirelessly up to 15 times. It also works as a power bank, by the way!
Finally, let’s not forget that you can access Siri through them, which is a big plus for this model, and they feature a WaterSafo nano coating technology, making them water resistant.
Next, we have another interesting product, coming from the folks over Syllable. Besides looking way better than Apple’s AirPods, the earbuds feature the latest noise cancelling technology, while the Power Audio driver is able to deliver crystal clear sound, with deep bass. They have an ergonomic design, for a very comfortable wear, and are lightweight, providing a very comfortable listening experience.
The battery life lasts for about two hours and they come with a wireless charging box, which allow you to charge them for about 6 times. Oh, and let’s not forget that they’re sweatproof, being great for working out or jogging sessions.
Another great pair of Apple AirPods alternatives is made by ELWN. Utilizing the most advanced CSR Bluetooth chipset, they provide noise cancelling technology and improved battery performance. However, the biggest plus of these headphones is the ability to customize them, using 48 custom fit accessories!
The earbuds have a built-in microphone, so you can make hands-free calls, while, when you’re low on battery, you can connect the Infinity Band wearable charger and continue playing music, while charging them. A pretty interesting product, isn’t it?
Now, we have a set of wireless earbuds from Ollivan which can be considered some of the best Apple AirPods alternatives! They have a built-in Lithium-Polymer battery, allowing you to enjoy music or watching videos for a longer period, with a superb sound quality!
They’re compatible with Bluetooth 4.2 and have a built-in mic, being optimized for extra comfort. They can be a great workout partner, thanks to the sweat-proof construction, and are available in Black, Pink, Blue and White, at a very good price, considering their quality.
Finally, the latest entry on our list with Apple AirPods alternatives comes from Erato Audio and it’s actually an awarded product, receiving the Honorable Mention Red Dot Award for design, back in 2015. They’re ultra light, weighing just 4 grams, and include a built-in omnidirectional microphone, perfect for making calls.
You will also receive a charging case, allowing you to fully recharge them twice, while on the go, while the Single Touch Multifunction can be used to control the headphones. Power them on or off, take a call, play music, skip tracks, change volume or access Siri just by tapping the button on the side. Pretty cool, huh? You can get them in Gray, Gold and White, Rose Gold, or Silver and White.
And these, ladies and gents, are some of the best Apple AirPods alternatives money can buy right now. If you ask us, there’s no doubt that the most interesting model is the Rowkin Bit Charge, mostly thanks to the impressive list of features. However, the design plays a very important role! I mean, just look at how small they are!
Of course, we’re looking forward to hearing from you as well! Which earbuds would you pick for your iPhone 7 and why? Let us know, by dropping a few lines in the comments section below!
