Not an Apple fan? Don’t worry, there’s plenty of other options.
Despite what a lot of people say or think about someone who wears AirPods, it can’t be denied that they remain to be one of Apple’s top sellers. In fact, as of February 2019, the wireless earphones have become Apple’s second best-selling device within two years after its release, second only to the iPad.
If you’re interested in getting your own wireless headset but don’t want to buy AirPods, here are a couple of alternatives to them that you might like.
Jabra Elite Active 65T Wireless Sport Earbuds
Jabra is already a well-known brand for audiophiles, so there’s nothing to worry about here when it comes to quality and durability. These wireless sport earbuds are often touted as one of the best true wireless earbuds by various reviewers. They have above average noise isolation, a battery life of more than 5 hours, and an IP56 water-resistance rating. Not to mention, they only cost $150 for a pair.
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless Earbuds
At $300, this pair may be a tad more expensive than AirPods, but it’s certainly worlds away in terms of build and sound quality. It even has smart capabilities and can pause your music automatically if it detects that your headset is away from you. Its noise isolation is also pretty good, although it wasn’t built for that purpose.
Samsung Galaxy Buds
Of course, it’s not a surprise that one of Apple’s biggest smartphone rivals is also its biggest wireless headset rival. Samsung Galaxy Buds are lightweight, comfortable, and definitely cheaper than AirPods. It can last up to six hours and already has a wireless charging case included, unlike the AirPods. You can own a pair of these babies for only $129.
See, you don’t have to sacrifice plenty of your hard-earned money and sound quality if you want to have your own wireless earbuds. Samsung and Jabra are both good options for a cheaper price, while Sennheiser is a great option if you’re willing to splurge a bit more.
