Apple’s AirPods are terrific earbuds… as long as you’re willing to make about half a dozen concessions. First and perhaps most importantly, they take six weeks to ship. Beyond that, they’re very expensive, they don’t have great battery life, they don’t fit very well since they’re made of slippery plastic, and they don’t have noise isolation or noise cancellation features. Oh and last but certainly not least, they’re beyond easy to lose since they’re not connected by a cable.
If you’re a diehard Apple fan and you’re willing to go that route, more power to you. But if you’re looking for something that checks all the boxes missing from the AirPods’ repertoire at a small fraction of the price, check out the Nekteck Bluetooth 4.1 Stereo Wireless IPX7 Earphones. They’re connected by a cable and have a brilliant magnetic design that connects the two buds together while they’re around your neck, so you’ll never lose them. They also feature a terrific fit, noise isolation, water-resistance for sports and workouts, up to 6 hours of continuous talk time, and Bluetooth 4.1 technology so you can connect them to multiple devices at once.
Oh and did we mention that they’re on sale for just $19.99?! Use the coupon code QPCLKHVN at checkout to snag this great deal.
