When it comes to wireless earphones, Apple’s AirPods and AirPods Pro are arguably the gold standard for accessibility, ease-of-use, and downright cool factor, but they’re definitely a little on the costly side.
At $249 for Pro model and $199 for regular ones with wireless charging case, not everyone can or wants to pay for Apple’s own wireless earphones, but what if you could get yours for less than $90? While we can’t get you a pair of Apple AirPods as such, we can at least get you something similar and these are even better in one particular way – they’re black in color!
We’d love it if Apple made a black version of its AirPods but alas, that hasn’t happened yet, not even with latest AirPods Pro model. Instead, you can pick up these black AirPods and AirPods Pro-like earphones for less than $89 and $52 respectively. They include support for features like H1/W1-style pop-up pairing, Bluetooth 5.0, battery level in official Battery widget in iOS, and even have their own wireless charging case, just like the real ones.
The earphones themselves also have an in-built microphone for making and receiving calls or talking to Siri/Google Assistant.
AirPods Pro-like earphones in Black
- Superb sound quality with rich bass.
- Qi wireless charging case.
- Up to 4 hours of listening on a single charge per earbud.
- 1:1 fit and finish.
- Pop-up-style pairing with iPhone and iPad.
- Passive Noise Cancellation (PNC). No Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) or Transparency mode like on originals. PNC cannot be activated in iOS like ANC, it’s by design.
- Support for Battery widget on iOS.
- HD microphone for crystal clear phone calls.
- Auto power on / off.
- Controls for next / previous song and Siri.
- Available in White and Matte Black colors.
AirPods 2-like earphones in Black
- Seamless W1 chip pairing like AirPods.
- Qi wireless charging case.
- Extremely comfortable fit and finish.
- Supports tap to call Siri, play or pause.
- Big 350mAh battery for days worth of listening.
- Rich sound experience with deep bass.
- Auto-pairing whenever you take the earphones out of the case.
- Auto power off when not in use for a long time.
- Supports wired charging using micro USB.
- Available in White, Glossy Black, Matte Black color options.
The charging case should see you listening to music all day long, and the earphones themselves are good for 3 to 4-hours of listening before they need some extra juice. That’s all pretty standard, but the biggest draw here really is that black finish that Apple has yet to match.
