Despite all of the downsides like the lack of availability and the poor fit for many users, there are two big upsides to Apple’s AirPods. One is the truly wireless design and the second is Apple’s W1 wireless chip. Where the cord-free design is concerned, there aren’t any Beats headphones that can match that. But there are Beats models with Apple’s awesome W1 chip inside, and one example is the Powerbeats3 Wireless In-Ear Headphones. These slick Bluetooth earbuds offer better sound and a much better fit than AirPods, and they also have the same enhanced wireless features thanks to the W1. What’s more, refurbs are on sale on Amazon right now for as little as $115 with free Prime shipping.
