Sometimes you look at a product, and you just think to yourself: “How did this get so popular?” The list is a long one: Beanie Babies, pocket chains, Crocs (enough said). And, while some coveted items don’t stand the test of time (some for more obvious reasons than others) there are certainly the ones that do — like Apple AirPods. These ultra-coveted wireless earbuds, like iPhones or really anything else produced by Apple, have turned into something of a status symbol. But is the status worth the actual ownership (especially when the AirPod Pros can run up to $249)?
If you’re looking for a set of wireless earbuds comparable to Apple’s AirPod Pros that are much more affordable, look no further than these AirSounds MAX True Wireless Earbuds. They feature the same minimalistic look and a slew of premium features that include noise cancellation and crisp, clear Bluetooth 5.0 audio for up to three hours off a single charge. There’s also In-Ear Smart Sensors, Touch Controls, and Siri voice command support, so you can listen in on your terms — and in total comfort. Have a New Year’s resolution to hit the gym more this year? Take these with you thanks to their water-resistant design.
These AirSounds MAX are also intuitive and easy to use: they play the second you put them in your ears, automatically playing your favorite songs. Plus, they pause the second you take them (or in the rare case they slip out) so you don’t need to rewind your podcast to see what you missed. They also give you the option to turn the noise-canceling on and off, just like the AirPod Pros, making them a perfect choice for your next flight (when you do want to drown out the sound of a crying baby) or your next run (when you definitely want to hear your surroundings).
Plus, they sport an ergonomic design and soft foam ear tips, so you can listen in comfort on both Apple and Android devices — and gain extra playtime with the included portable charging case.
