Bose, samsung and Sony have the best truly wireless earbuds. So why buy airpods when they suck, there is no point in flexing because it just shows people how bad you are at making financial decisions

Apple don't have to try. Making the best, leading edge products is not their priority because it's not necessary. Their incredible marketing strategies have recruited millions of Apple worshipers who will buy their products regardless. Don't get me wrong, Apple have some brilliant products, but they've put themselves in a position where they don't all have to be brilliant, or even above average as is the case with these air pods. Why spend a fortune developing the best when you can sell an average product for the same price?

I actually like the way AirPods fit, as they allow me to maintain a degree of situation awareness about the world around me. I've greatly disliked the way some in ear earphones have sealed up my ear canals, keeping me from hearing things like honking horns. YMMV.

That's why I love my Sony WF-1000XM3s, they not only have noise cancelling but also allow sound to come through, even giving you an option to choose how much sound goes through. It's more expensive at 230 but I'm very happy with it.

Galaxy Buds are amazing! Sold my airpods to buy the Galaxy buds. The Galaxy buds are so much better the airpods. Better sound quality, app features, comfortable over long time use, better quality, wireless charging, and a few more stuff. I highly recommend the Galaxy buds for people looking for really nice wireless earbuds.

literally why does everything have to be wireless? 😂 am I the only one who doesn’t care?? Also I never liked Apple earphones anyway bc they don’t fit in my ears.. they always slip out, so there is no way I’d pay to have wireless headphones that do the same thing.

@Usual we r talking about audio quality here, there isnt anyting to do with windows... You cant be askung too much with a earphone with no isolation design option anyway. Im not saying it is bad, just not worth the upgrade, when they r absolutely capable of a improved design, but feels like they couldn't be bothered...

As an Apple user, I’d like to chime in. I have a set of audiophile headphones, a schiit amp and dac, all that good stuff, but the only reason I’m considering the AirPods is because of sheer convenience, sure they may not sound that great but they would be great for going grocery shopping, bike riding, etc. I hate to be the “oh it’s the ecosystem” guy, but it really is, being able to sync them with my watch would be absolutely awesome.

KZ has successfully beta- tested their T1 TWS headphones, so... pretty soon the TWS market will be obsolete. I mean, not that 1DD+2BA drivers for 40$ is a great deal for sound quality, you can get better hybrids or 3BA pure armature for that, but, as far as the wireless market goes - that's still the cheapest armature available. Right now, last time I checked, there are only 3 legitimate competitors: 1. Galaxy Buds - basically the same crappy dynamic as Apple, but better, cheaper, and more comfortable. ~100$ 2. Huawei Buds - I think they had a model with a DD+BA hybrid, which is already a plus. ~100$ 3. Mifo O5 - single Knowles-BA driver. Not a huge upgrade when done with a single driver, but still - BA>DD. ~80$ With KZ entering the market at ~40$, if their beta is of any indication, while offering a decent-quality V-shaped sound with interchangeable buds and quality BT chip - well... what more would you want from TWS? I mean, personally, sitting here broke with AS16, 8 balanced armature drivers per ear, having basically an orchestra-level sound stage in my ears, with comfortable memory foam and a proper DAP source - I want a lot more from TWS. The bar is too high. But I am a realist, I recognize that building a TWS is a very complicated process, so it obviously will never be better than 40$ wired headphones. It's physically impossible. Unless, maybe, that will be some extremely-well tuned Knowles-Sonion combo of micro-BA drivers(like the ones used in 10-21BA per ear headphones). But that shit will cost AT LEAST 300$. And, of course, the sheep will only buy an expensive product when it has an Apple logo attached, not when it's an actual QUALITY product. For reference, the primary difference in headphone manufacturing is this: 1. Dynamic IEMs require a bum-level plastic cable that transmits a bare minimum of current, because dynamic drivers are just... BAD. Sure, some "higher" quality DD IEMs may have a better cable, and high-end overhead monitors definitely have a thick cable, but I'm talking about generally 100$> dynamic IEMs. Plus most of them use only one driver(even though you can physically stack up to 4, there are some 15$> QKZ quad-DD IEMs that desperately attempt to build a soundstage via better frequency reproduction at a given volume). So the bottom line is that it's double-cheap. All you have to do is, hopefully, take a better DD driver(and, unfortunately, they do vary) and configure it to a proper frequency response. The better the quality and your skill as an audio engineer - the better the final DD sound will be. Still, the lack of a sound stage, the dirty bass and the broken mids and the potentially extremely artificial treble - are some of the many of "identifiers" of a DD driver. 2. Armature IEMs first of all require armature cable. Which is still cheap if manufactured efficiently, but a replacement one can cost almost as much as a full-on pair of DD IEMs(5-10$). Armature drivers, however, are a separate subject. I know only three manufacturers: Knowles, Sonion and Bellsing. Knowles and Sonion are used in high-end, premium, like actually LUXURY grade IEMs, so their presence in budget IEMs is very limited(Tenhz T4\T5 is probably your best bet, and that's only 4-5 drivers). Bellsing is, as you'd expect, a chinese copy. From my own experience and numerous people on Headfi - the difference in sound quality is ... not that huge at all. So much that the said Tenhz aren't exactly the "bang for buck" that they claim to be. However, whatever the case - Armature drivers by themself are not only more expensive, but they are also insufficient alone. Like, a VERY good, big DD driver that's pristine and polished - can truly rival some 3-BA Bellsing setups. In other words, a 200-300$ DD IEM vs a 40$ IEM. But beyond that - DD requires a hybrid approach, because unless you are a desperado like QKZ - stacking DD doesn't do shit. Dynamic drivers reproduce bass, struggle with lower mids and require work to reproduce treble. Across the board. So that's where hybrid design comes in - armature technically doesn't have as "fat" bass(but once you hear a natural armature bass, you can't go back), but they do have better performance in mids and highs. This is why most hybrids stack a DD base with BA "treble polishers". Preferably - not only treble, but also mid-polishers, but the cost of BA drivers increases, the double treble drivers are the cheapest, while the mid ones are more rare and expensive and a large armature bass driver is a rarity only seen in pure armature setups. 3. TWS headphones do not require cables, but they require a charging cable that has to work "as intended", they require a BT chip that has to work "as intended"(because crappy BT connection isn't exactly a selling point nowadays). They require a battery that also doesn't "die" and that can feed the headphone for an extended period. All of that requires much more quality control than just "modify the drivers, attach cable, check if it works, pass". And all of it requires power. This is why most TWS headphones stick to one driver, two max. This 3-driver hybrid by KZ is already shell-sized, as in - the same as their other over-ear designs, and while it's not as big as AS16\large models, it still poses fitting risk. This is why most TWS manufacturers drop sound quality and make their shit as accessible as possible. Apple goes an extra mile ahead by even removing the "danger" of different earbuds. Sheep buy what they are offered, so if they are offered a cold plastic in their ears - what choice do they have? The less - the better. Less problems for Apple. I personally detest even silicone earbuds, they just don't work for me, neither comfort nor sound quality wise. And I have "once" tried plastic in my ears. Never again. It's foam or nothing. So the first and most important advantage of ANY TWS IEM other than AirPods - is that they CAN be outfitted with memory-foam. And no amount of "10$" dirt-cheap accessories of AirPods will match that.

If you have an iPhone they are a no brainer, they are basically magic and depending on your preference might be the best you can buy. But they are a bad choice if you have any other phone. I don't like rubber tips earbuds because they isolate nose too much (dangerous when walking around with them) and they are much less comfortable to wear over long periods. Moreover TWE don't have great sound to begin with so rubber tips for "better bass" does not really matter. You don't buy these tiny ass earbuds for sound quality anyway

Just a question. Memory foam wrapped earbuds/AirPods. It will fit to shape and be more comfortable for the user. Is there a real reason this isn’t being done? It seems like it would create a good seal and make it easier for long term use. Just an idea.
