Apple's new AirPods are decent wireless headphones but they will set you back a pretty penny. If you're poking for an alternative that delivers completely wireless sound without costing an arm and leg, there are lots of options. Here are five we've spotted.
With Bluetooth 5, wireless charging and completely cable-free operation, these headphones tick most of the boxes while costing a mere fraction of Apple's alternative.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then these buds pay homage to Apple. These lookalikes have Bluetooth 4 and ship with a case that charges over USB.
At under $30, these Bluetooth 4 headphones are great or the gym and will keep tuned in to your favourite podcasts and tunes.
If over the ear headphones are more your thing, these laser headphones, with noise cancellation are a solid option.
Bose is well known for producing great headphones with great sounds. At almost $100 less than Apple's option, you'll get great sound and keep some cash in your wallet. Premium sound at a great price.
