Apple AirPods are undoubtedly one of the wireless earbuds on the market, but Boy Genius Report has found a pair of $40 earbuds on Amazon that have the same (if not better) sound quality and actually stay in your ears when you’re working out. Find out more from BGR and shop below:
Holy moly… Apple AirPods are actually back in stock on Amazon right now with free Prime shipping! But wait, before you order yourself a pair of $159 earbuds from Apple, there’s another option you might want to consider. The SmartOmi Q5 Truly Wireless Earbuds are the best-selling cord-free headphones we’ve ever covered, and we’ve received a ton of great feedback from our readers. In fact, many people out there tell us that they sound even better than the Apple AirPods. It’s not because they have higher quality speakers though, it’s because they have silicon tips that actually stay in your ears and isolate sound. AirPods are made out of slippery plastic instead, so they never stay in your ears properly.
These earbuds are great for workouts and running thanks to their light-weight design. They’re also equipped with an 8mm built-in microphone that allows for clear calls for you and the recipient, making them a great option for video conferencing and business calls. You can also mute and un-mute your microphone during a call by double pressing MFB of the left earbud once. They feature snap pairing and superior connection stability as well, and are compatible with all Bluetooth devices such as iPhone 7 / 7plus, 8 / 8s plus, X , S8, SE, Android cellphones, tablets or TVs enabled with Bluetooth receivers.
