Apple AirPods Hit Lower Price
They announced that newer iPhones would no longer support their traditional 3.5mm wired headphone jack.
Although Apple AirPods (from $159) now come with a wireless charging case, hands-free Siri, and longer talk-times, there is still a lot of other brands that Digital Trends says are just as effective.
Their list of AirPods alternatives for Android, Windows, and iOS devices include:
1. Samsung Galaxy Buds ($127): Digital Trends says that their lightweight, in-ear comfort, six-hour battery life, and price lower point makes them stand out.
2. Jabra Elite Active 65T True Wireless Sport Earbuds ($150): They have good sound quality, great noise isolation, are water-resistant and sweat-proof.
3. Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless Earbuds ($300) Their earbuds have a higher price point, but come with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, Smart Pause, and a transparent mode that lets in ambient sounds so you can remain aware of your surroundings.
