Ever since the first iPhone was released, Apple has been one of the leading tech companies out there, so there’s no surprise that all their products are known to be extremely expensive!
Their latest product, the AirPods. These things don’t really need an introduction since most people know about them already. But to the tutors, grown ups or just simply people like myself that can’t afford them, AirPods are a pair of wireless earphones, that not only sound but also feels rather premium (no surprise there from Apple). But with a catch, they are absurdly expensive (also, a very Apple thing to do). These little devils cost around BND248! Imagine losing one of them! Which means you have to buy new a pair.
But on the plus side, people who own AirPods get ‘the rich privilege’, which means they’re ‘better’ than other people.
Personally I don’t really get the hype for them, since they don’t really look appealing. But they do pack some exceptionally good sound quality. Since they are wireless, you’ll need to charge them, but with Apple’s W1 chip, the battery lasts a full 5 hours. But it doesn’t end there, connecting your device with a pair of AirPods is just too easy, take them out, and you’re ready to go.
Apple’s AirPods aren’t for everyone however. Personally I wouldn’t spend BND248 on a pair of headphones, no matter how packed it is with features, it’s really unrealistic. And the design from my point of view, is just plain unattractive, I would actually prefer something more subtle and low-key. Although this is purely a personal preference. But hey, if you have some money laying around at home, around BND300 to be exact, why not?
