Best Airpods Pro Alternatives - Black or White

Our AirPods Pro Alternatives are even better than our standard Airpods Alternatives due to the addition of Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) to block out the external noise around you. These are not an Apple® product but instead a great alternative at a fraction of the price!

Your choices include the 1st generation launched in 2001 or the latest 2nd generation launched at the start of 2024. Both products are identical in terms of shape, size, and the excellent sound produced. The most significant difference is the addition of volume controls on the Airpods themselves. Our Gen2 Pro Airbuds allow you to quickly adjust the volume by swiping the AirPods stalks up and down. This is uber convenient and saves you from having to dig your phone out every time you want to adjust the volume.

Our Airpods Pro Alternatives have been designed to deliver Active Noise Cancellation for immersive sound, Transparency mode so you can hear your surroundings if needed, and a customisable fit for all-day comfort. These best Earbuds Pro connect seamlessly to any Bluetooth device. This includes mobile phones, tablets, laptops, or smartwatches (regardless of brand).

Simple to operate, they let you listen to music, or take phone calls, whilst on the go. Just like the big old-fashioned earphones but with full flexibility and a real sense of freedom.

They make a perfect gift for anyone who likes Apple AirPods Pro® but does not want to pay around £200 for the privilege!

There are hundreds of really cheap Airpod® Pro clones available these days. The trouble is you end up playing 'retail roulette' as to what you actually get. Most clones are far inferior to the originals (particularly in terms of reliability, sound quality, and battery life).

Even if the product looks the same, the internal parts can vary greatly! The upshot is that it is very difficult to know if what you're buying is any good. Inevitably, you get what you pay for - there is a reason the deals on Wowcher, eBay, GadgetsBuy, any variation of Phone4U, etc. are so cheap!

If you are unsure whether a website is genuine, please read our 7 Tips to spotting a fake e-commerce website.Whatever you do, please do not purchase "refurbished" Airpods®. A number of very similar websites, with seemingly good reviews, have recently appeared selling what they claim are "refurbished" original products.

Apple® does not design their products to be easily fixed, repaired, upgraded, or anything similar. These sites instead sell very cheap, poor quality, clones and pretend they are high-quality refurbs instead - simply not true! (see the evidence on our FB post).
