Beyerdynamic Free BYRD headphones promise to be a rival to Apple’s anticipated AirPods Pro 2 (2022) when they launch, possibly later this year. As noted they come with active noise canceling and up to 11 hours of battery life. A full review is coming to iMore soon but our early impressions are fantastic, and could be some of the best true wireless earbuds we’ve ever tested.
Free BYRD also supports both Siri and Alexa on devices like the iPhone 13. They have 10mm drivers and come with five silicone earpieces for comfort and in-ear fit. They can be charged wirelessly and feature Bluetooth 5.2, and they’re also splash-proof!
Free BYRD is available today from beyerdynamic.com for $249.
