There's a lot to love about Apple AirPods — they're sleek, totally wireless, and deliver amazing sound quality. The downside is that they're pricey — and might not deliver the same range of features that other similarly Bluetooth-powered buds can feature. These four earbuds are an amazing alternative to AirPods – and come in well under the $159 retail price that Apple offers.
If you invest more than $100 into a pair of wireless earphones, you definitely want them to be durable — and these xFyro xS2's feature IP67 waterproofing, meaning you could hop into a pool with them playing and not worry. The proprietary, noise-isolating silicone structure lets you enjoy your tunes with concert-level audio, and the cutting-edge Bluetooth CSR 4.2 tech means skip-free, seamless connections to your devices.
Usually, these xFyro xS2 Waterproof Wireless Earphones are $249.99, but you can get them now for $114.99.
These 1Voice earbuds do what other "wireless" earphones still fail to do: they feature a completely cordless design, using high-tech 4.2 Bluetooth technology for crystal clear audio and a streamlined design. They work independently or paired together, and are lightweight enough for everyday use.

The Cresuer Touchwave headphones pair intuitive, minimalist design with impressive audio performance.

The HBQ i7 Twins might initially look like Apple AirPods — and in terms of functionality, they're really similar. They feature Bluetooth 4.2, a rechargeable battery that plays for four to five hours straight, plus the noise reduction and echo-cancellation technology filters out ambient noise. So you get the same performance, if not better — but for much less.
Usually, these HBQ i7 Twins True Wireless Earphones are $49.99, but you can get them now for $29.99.
