When Apple released the AirPods in 2016 alongside the iPhone 7, they received mixed responses and all-around confusion. Were they just Bluetooth EarPods without a cord? How will they fit in your ears without falling out?
Many questions surfaced, but the AirPods remain some of the most popular Bluetooth earbuds available today, so much so that competitors are creating affordable alternatives while staying true to Apple’s design. If you’re interested in a pair of Bluetooth earbuds but don’t want to shell out $160 for AirPods, you should consider these Metallic Wireless Earbuds for $26.
The Metallic Wireless Earbuds by Metallic Sounds are a sleek pair of Bluetooth earbuds inspired by the AirPods, even down to the included charging case. They offer crisp audio thanks to the HD stereo sound chip, and each earpiece contains a built-in microphone to make and receive calls. Additionally, they're sweat proof, making them ideal for gym sessions and quick runs.
The Air Buds offer up to 2.5 hours of playback off a single charge, but the included charging case allows you to charge them 10 times off a full charge. With this, you can enjoy your favorite music during your morning and evening commutes on top of a full day at the office.
If you’re looking for a sleek pair of Bluetooth earbuds without paying the hefty Apple tax, you can buy the Metallic Wireless Earbuds by Metallic Sounds for $26, or 67% off. They're available in black, white, blue, pink, or silver.
