Best Airpods® Alternatives - 2nd Generation Black or White
Launched in early 2021, these are our 2nd generation of Wireless Gadgets Earbuds. These are not Apple Airpods® but instead a great alternative for a fraction of the price!
Since Apple® launched their Airpods® in 2016 they have taken the world by storm, and rightly so. They are an amazing wireless gadget that has become essential for anyone who likes listening to music, audiobooks, podcasts, etc. The downside to this freedom is that they are not cheap!
If you would like to know exactly how our wireless Airpods compare to the leading brand, please take a look at our Airpods 2 comparison video...

Our amazing alternatives wirelessly connect to any Bluetooth device that plays music. Most commonly this will be a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or smartwatch (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.

There are hundreds of really cheap Airpod® 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).
