Apple AirPods was once one of the hottest pieces of wireless earbuds in fashion, due to being unique at the time of launch. But with time, they started to lose their quality, as other companies came up with so many better alternatives. Apple AirPods 2 are basically the same as the previous model with just a wireless charging box and almost double the price.
The Cupertino based tech company doesn’t upgrade much and just raises the price. Apple is the same company which is selling a CPU stand for $999. The year is 2019; there are so many cheaper and better alternatives to Apple AirPods, priced at $199. Here are some of the best AirPods alternative, and reasons not to buy Apple AirPods.
OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2
OnePlus is slowly upping up its game with the latest OnePlus 7 Pro, which is a direct competitor to all major flagships. In response to the Apple AirPods, OnePlus came up with the OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2. It has a better sound quality and battery life than AirPods and just cost $99, which is half of Apple AirPods 2.
Samsung Galaxy Buds
One of the biggest competitors to Apple is Samsung, and it has a better alternative to every Apple device. Samsung Galaxy Buds are far superior to the Apple AirPods, and can also be repaired easily if broken. They have a better design, smaller shape, and water resistant body, which AirPods lacks. Priced at $129, the Galaxy Buds are much better and also have various color choices.
JBL Free X
While Apple and Samsung are smartphone making company, there are some brands whose chief product is sound devices. JBL Free X is an amazing wireless earbud, which provides a 24 hours battery life. Having a much better sound quality and design, JBL Free X is just priced at $99.95.
Powerbeats Pro – Beats by Dre
