If you don’t mind paying a big premium, you can head to the Amazon store and buy a pair of AirPods now. Of course, if you’re not rich, you’ll have to order them on Apple’s website and wait so long for them to be delivered, or you can keep checking your local stores and cross your fingers.
You can either sit tight and wait for Apple’s AirPods price cut down, or you can find yourself another pair of bluetooth earbuds. In either case, you should definitely check out the QCY Q29 Wireless Earbuds. If you’re hellbent on AirPods, these affordable headphones will tide you over in the meantime. And if you’ve decided to pass on Air Pods all together, these are a fantastic low-cost alternative.
In fact, you can buy them on Amazon around $60 or less. They’re shipping right now, they’re more affordable, and they don’t look like someone took normal earbuds and just ripped the cable out of them.
Here’s a different take on this design concept. The QCY Q29 is a tiny wireless earbuds that sits comfortably in the ear when it’s being used as a Bluetooth headset for phone calls. The right earbud is considered the main headset, while the left earbud is considered the secondary headset. This means that the right earbud must be on for the right earpiece to work. You have to pair the right earbud with your smartphone and while the left earbud is pre-configured to pair with the right earbud to give you best quality sound.
Each QCY wireless earbuds has an electrical contact for the charging case, a tiny status LED and a built-in microphone on the right earbud. The Q29 wireless earbuds are to be charged and stored in a mini case which is not only provides protection but also charges the earbuds when they are not being used. In addition, there is a micro-USB port on the side that allows for easy charging.
