Bragi's 'Headphone' takes on Apple's AirPods

 

Bragi's back with another pair of all wireless earbuds, and they're definitely worth a look.

Apple The bottom line: Our quick verdict on Apple's AirPods

 

With Apple kissing the standard headphone jack goodbye, it's hoping people will buy these completely wireless earbuds instead. They're elegant in some ways, with a simple pairing process and good voice-call quality. It's too bad that Apple otherwise...

Dead-simple to set up ; Siri and calls work very well ; Solid battery life

Controls aren't flexible enough ; Mediocre audio quality ; EarPods-inspired design isn't for everyone

Apple AirPods review

 

Apple's AirPods are among the best fully wireless earbuds you can buy.

Rock-solid wireless reliability, range ; Solid battery life ; Fast, compact charging case ; Independent earbud operation ; Replacement parts available

Not suitable for fitness activity ; Average sound quality ; Expensive replacement parts

Apple’s AirPods are among the best completely wire-free earbuds available today. Their flawlessly stable wireless connection and range alone still puts them ahead of much of the competition. That said, they are no longer the kings of the court in terms...

Apple AirPods

 

The Apple AirPods feel like a big step for wireless in-ear audio—but it's more about innovations and features and less about audio performance.

Clear audio performance. Seamlessly pairs with multiple iOS devices on the same iCloud account. Carrying case doubles as backup battery.

Lack of ear canal seal means less bass response and potential ear-to-ear stereo image discrepancies. Limited onboard controls virtually require you to use Siri. In-ear fit could be more secure.

Most of the hand-wringing over the lack of a headphone jack in the iPhone 7 is misdirected—wireless audio is clearly the direction of the future. But it remains to be seen how the world will respond to this new breed of cable-free earphones. As far as...

Apple AirPods Review

 

Wireless headphones have been ripe for a reboot for years now, but no contenders for the crown have divided opinion quite like Apple's AirPods. Revealed alongside the iPhone 7, the fully-wireless earbuds were intended to salve the pain of losing the...

Pairing and connecting process is best-in-class ; Solid battery life ; Convenience and speed of charging case ; Lightweight and comfortable

Reliance on Siri ; Third-party music apps lack deep control Apple Music enjoys ; No "Find my AirPods" tracking system ; Audio quality on par with free EarPods

Apple AirPods Review

 

At Apple's September keynote event that took place a few months ago, there were a few controversial announcements that took place. The iPhone 7's familiar design and the removal of its 3.5mm headphone jack caused for quite a bit of uproar, and along...

Minimalistic design ; Comfortable to wear ; Ridiculously easy pairing process ; Gesture controls work well ; Audio is clear and surprisingly punchy ; Battery life is incredible for headphones this small ; Price is competitive against similar gadgets

One-size-fits-all design won’t fit everyone’s ears perfectly ; Limited gesture controls

Apple’s AirPods certainly may be one of the more controversial products that the company released this year, but after spending some good quality time with them, they just might be one of my favorite gadgets of 2016.

Apple Airpods Review

 

Great for long travel days but not stable enough for hard workouts

Portable battery pack/case, total freedom from wires, good sound quality

Expensive, not really suitable for working out

The Apple AirPods offer a unique design that excels for long travel days but isn't well suited to exercise. If you're constantly racking up frequent flyer miles these earbuds will make your experience a bit easier.

Battle of the buds: How Apple AirPods stack up against other wireless earbuds

 

You don't wireless earbuds yet, but you probably will in a few years.

Tim Cook was probably correct when he declared "wireless is the future" while talking about the AirPods. Apple did an adequate job on its first try making truly wireless buds, although I'm not willing to compromise on comfort and fit. Thankfully,...

Review: Bragi's Headphone offers a solid alternative to Apple AirPods

 

Bragi's fully wireless Headphone -- yes, in the singular -- is a competent if not spectacular alternative to Apple's AirPods, and even has some features the AirPods lack.

If you're searching for all-wireless earbuds and don't want AirPods for whatever reason, the Headphone will certainly do. It's a little more subtle than Apple's product, fashion-wise, and features like on-ear controls and audio transparency may tip...
