Apple’s AirPods were supposed to be released in October. Well, now it’s almost December and we still have no idea when the AirPods will finally hit store shelves. Truth be told, even when they do launch they definitely won’t be the go-to wireless earbuds for many people since their design is so… how can we put this politely… hideous. Tack on a steep $159 price tag and you’ve completely lost us.

Here’s another option: grab the Rowkin Bit Stereo Wireless Earbuds on Amazon for $50 less. They’re shipping right now, they’re more affordable, and they don’t look like someone took normal earbuds and just ripped the cable out of them.
