Love the look of AirPods but not the price tag? Hey, we don't blame you — they cost nearly 200 bucks! Luckily, you can still get the same look — the white, wireless earbud-style — for a lot less money, which is why we put together this list of the best AirPod alternatives to help you out. Remember, newer iPhones don't have a headphone jack, so wireless headphones are a must if you want to listen to music without a dongle.
Highly-rated and reliable
Don't break the bank, but do get the AirPod look with these TaoTronics Wireless Earbuds. These Bluetooth earbuds are super comfortable to wear and give you nearly 30+ hours of listening time when used with the charge box. You also have a 33-foot range with the TaoTronics Wireless Earbuds.
Close to the real deal
Trick the world into thinking you're droppin' dough on AirPods when in reality, you're jamming along with TicPods. These noise-canceling earbuds are easy to pair and are super lightweight and comfortable, making them the perfect partner for travel, work, and everything in between.
Price efficient and stylish
Say bye-bye to that big ol' AirPod price tag and hello to the cost-efficient AUKEY True Wireless Earbuds! These affordable earbuds look pretty close to the real deal and are designed to be super lightweight. Once you're done using your earbuds, just pop 'em in their charging box, and you're good to go!
The most inexpensive option on this list, Anker's wireless earbuds provide all the functionality of a phone headset and playback controller with easy touch-sensitive controls. This is everything you need in a wireless earbud at a fraction of the price of the original.
These earbuds from Rademax have some of the best specs we've seen. 13mm vibrating diaphragm with crystal clear sound, 30 hours of playback, 45ft Bluetooth radius, and universal compatibility. These powerful little earbuds will give an impressive performance at a reasonable price.
We're always on the hunt for a good dupe (or three!), so if we find any more good AirPod alternatives, we'll add them to our list. Currently, we're obsessed with the TaoTronics Wireless Earbuds because of their great reviews and high quality. They give a full 30 hours of listening time and have a good range.
For something even closer to the real deal, check out the TicPods. They're not the most affordable, but still a much better price than the original AirPods. Regardless, we hope you find the perfect pair of earbuds for you and your ears!
