If there’s one rub about late model iPhones, it’s that Apple is chronically unable to meet the demand for AirPods. Thankfully, the team at Boy Genius Report found a solution. Get the scoop and shop below.
Think for a moment about how crazy it is that Apple first released the AirPods last December, six months ago, and it still hasn’t figured out how to manufacture them quickly enough to meet demand. After all this time, new orders on Apple’s website still take six weeks to be delivered. That’s just nuts. You can order them with two-day Prime shipping on Amazon, but you’ll have to pay a premium for the privilege. There’s nothing wrong with that if you really want them, however we’ve got another option for you to consider.
The SMARTOMI Q5 True Wireless Earbuds are cord-free just like Apple’s AirPods, and they have an impressive 4.5-star rating on Amazon. They also cost $39 compared to $159 or more for AirPods, which is a huge difference.
