      Ugh. Gross I hate the in ear canal things. Absolutely the worst.

      My problème is that all the non apple ear phones wireless suck. Iike the plain basic airpods for the ear fit. Not because apple.

          I think they mean without a eartip. The airpod pro’s have them but all their other earbuds do not have eartips.

          I don’t agree with them, but I also didnt read that they thought others weren’t valid. They seemed like they were just expressing that this isn’t a good option for them (or people like them)

        Agree, the soft tip earbuds always fall out of my ears/don’t have a good seal. I couldn’t find ANY decent alternative to airpods, I’ve been using my airpod 3’s for over a year for 8+ hours a day. If someone knows of a secret headphone manufacturer that makes wireless buds with good battery life and non-soft tips, I’m ALL EARS

          Lol funnily I’m the exact opposite. Apple’s “cupless” ear buds have never stayed in my ears, from the early iPod ones to airpods. I put them in and they’re just completely loose and immediately fall out if I turn my head.

        Personally I like the muse headphones. Absolutely fantastic range for the price and if you are actually looking for audio quality + repairable they are great. The build quality is also top notch and compare with the $500+ range headphones. I don’t like how apples sound tbh. For that price it should sound better.

        For everything else I just get wired or target brand wireless. The target brand for less than 10$ has lasted over 4 years lol.

          I had some ghetto ones from Home Depot that lasted a few years as well. Decent battery life, reasonably comfortable, and inexpensive.

          I now use Shokz bone conduction headphones for wireless, especially on my bike. For everything else, my wired cans work well.

        Downvotes shall list better headphones.

        I myself have not found a better solution.

        I like apple headphones and i settled on similar shaped non-apple brand at a fraction af the price, but it is lower in quality compared to apple. Microphone is crap and I stopped trying to use it. Headphones level is good at low level and high level sound reproduction, but it is not as accurate as apple.

        In the end the trade off is worth it to me for the price, but i will not claim at is better.

        So, bring on your alternative and price of it.

          I’ve never bought any Apple stuff so I can’t compare but I find Bose products nowadays to be extremely good quality, if a bit pricey

          Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 (Pro)? I am not an “audiophile” at all so I cannot judge whether they are going to be satisfactory to all those people that imagine they can hear certain tiny frequency contributions (which they cannot, the “audiophile” community is just delusional), but they’ve served me well for the past two years.

            (which they cannot, the “audiophile” community is just delusional)

            I don’t consider myself an audiophile, but I’m still offended on their behalf.

            Having said that, after futzing a bit with the eq I do love my Buds 2 Pro.
