The cheapest of Apple’s AirPods offerings have dipped back below that $100 mark at Amazon, making them a pretty cracking deal for anyone who’s looking for a pair of great earbuds for their iPhone. This isn’t the lowest price they’ve ever been – that honor goes to Prime Day, where they reached $89, but $99 is nothing to turn your nose up at.
Little white buds of joy
You shouldn’t go into the AirPods 2 experience expecting an earthshattering sonic experience. Neither should you expect the most impressive noise canceling because they don’t, nor will they ever. You should expect a very solid wireless in-ear experience that feels like magic.
They connect to your iPhone with a flip of the lid on the top of the charging case, appearing on your iPhone’s home screen with a ‘connect’ prompt. They recharge seamlessly in the little charging case, and they’re built to a degree that makes them very easy to toss into a bag without a worry about damage. You might still want one of the best AirPods 2 cases – if not only because they can look really cool.
Comfort-wise, some love them, and some hate them. They don’t have the now traditional silicon tips you find on many earbuds, instead going for a version of the Apple headphone shape, designed to slip into your ear without creating too much of a seal. While this lets lots of sound out (and some in, too), it’s also more comfortable for people who don’t like the tight fit of silicon buds.
If you’re looking for the best-sounding Bluetooth earbuds, you’re looking in the wrong place. If you’re looking for some of the most convenient and well-built earbuds, then these will fill that niche extremely well.
