Buying Fake AirPods?
Are you considering getting yourself a pair of fake AirPods? In this article, I will compare and contrast the new Apple AirPods Pro and the HD AirPods 3.0.
In your lifetime, you have probably seen one or many of Apple’s commercials featuring AirPods and wondered whether they were worth the hype. Walking into any gym in the country you will see more than half of the crowd wearing these small, white earpieces. The worst experience you can have during the week is showing up to the gym and noticing your forgot to bring your headphones or noticing your wireless headphones are completely dead. You are now victim to listening to top 40 pop music personally curated by the gym’s staff or hearing the person beside you on a work call. Let’s not forget the most annoying, a jackass grunting excessively on every set. Noise drowning headphones have become a staple for many gym-goers and are considered mandatory for every workout. Without them you can’t help but feel unmotivated. So, buying a quality pair of in-ear headphones is a necessity. Do you really want to spend over $249.99 for the new AirPods Pro only to have a new design come out the following year? If you can sacrifice authenticity, the Spectral Body HD Airpods might be the way to go!
How Good Are The Fakes?
One of the reasons consumers love Airpods comes down to their simplicity. With a flip of a case and putting the Airpods in your ears, they instantly sync. One of the functions most important to me is the automatic pause, for example when someone approaches you in the gym and asks if you’re using a weight or something you usually have to interrupt your favorite song to politely answer the person. With Airpods you can just remove one of the earbuds and your song will pause, when you place the earbud back into you ear the song conveniently resumes. This is the most useful function that is absent from most of the copy cat Airpods and since I only wear my Airpods in the gym this small missing feature leads me to contemplate if paying $249.99 for the new Airpods Pro version is steep, especially compared to paying $19.99 for HD Airpods that are nearly identical and get the job done.
