Apple released the refreshed AirPods 2 only few months ago, and so far they’ve been selling like crazy, despite their high $199 cost. Thankfully if you want the AirPods lifestyle but don’t want to spend the big bucks, you can get some that are very similar for a fraction of the price.
Right now what we have here is a pair or earbuds in a wireless charging case that look very, very similar to AirPods 2.
They apparently work just like AirPods, too, with the product page outlining a pairing process that sounds just like the W1 and H1 chip pairing process that both the original and second generation AirPods offer.
In fact, here’s how you pair these things:
- Turn on Bluetooth and WiFi on your iPhone.
- Bring the wireless earphones near your iPhone.
- Open the charging case lid and take the earphones out.
- Wait for a few seconds until you see a pop-up window on your iPhone with an animation showing that AirPods have been detected.
- Tap on ‘Connect.’
- You’re done and connected.
That sounds pretty amazing, right?
What’s even better is that these feature Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, and even includes built-in Qi wireless charging just like Apple’s own $199 version.
