10 Great AirPod Alternatives That Won't Cost You a Fortune

Wired headphones are over, these 10 great airpod alternatives will bring you up to date. 


There are few things as embarrassing as standing up from your computer while wearing headphones—taking your computer with you—because you forgot you were wearing them! Similarly awkward and embarassing is when you happen to be walking around wearing headphones and the cord somehow wraps itself around a doorknob. While these are minor inconveniences, we live in a constantly evolving technological domain. By upgrading to wireless headphones, these minor inconveniences become a thing of the past.

Apple may have brought AirPods to the forefront, but they haven’t cornered the market. More accurately, they inspired it. Whether you use your headphones to make handsfree calls, listen to music or watch a dozen TEDTalks in a single afternoon, it’s likely it’s time for an upgrade. If you’re like me, your favorite pair of headphones are missing the little silicone earbud cover, they’re not as clean as they used to be and your phone doesn’t even have a AUX jack anymore. Saving you the trouble of researching the best AirPod alternative, below you’ll find the 10 best wireless headphones currently on Amazon.
