crazybaby Air earbuds: Stylish and great-sounding competitor to Apple AirPods

crazybaby Air earbuds: Stylish and great-sounding competitor to Apple AirPods

I'm usually dubious when I get PR emails touting wireless earbuds that are considered to be competitors to Apple's AirPods, especially when the manufacturer is using crowdfunding. But after seeing how the crazybaby Air earbud campaign raised almost $2.8 million on Indiegogo and then testing them, I'm convinced that these earbuds are a solid competitor to the AirPods. They'll be available this fall for US$169 on Amazon and the crazybaby website

Apple looks to improve future earbuds with ‘beamforming’

Apple looks to improve future earbuds with ‘beamforming’

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,516,442) to improve the audio quality of earbuds used with smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. The company says that under typical environmental conditions, the microphones in eabudds may do a poor job of capturing a sound of interest (e.g., speech received from a user's mouth) due to the presence of various background sounds.

Rowkin Bit Wireless Stereo Earbuds: Smaller, less expensive than AirPods

 Rowkin Bit Wireless Stereo Earbuds: Smaller, less expensive than AirPods

Apple's AirPods wireless earbuds should be coming out soon -- in fact, they may hit stores by the end of this week -- but for some people there are negatives associated with the product. First of all, those little white dangly bits just seem a bit weird to some folks, and the lack of a way to keep them completely connected to your ear while running is a concern. Then there's the price tag -- $159. Fortunately, there are alternatives, and today we're looking at the Rowkin Bit Wireless Stereo Earbuds ($109.99, affiliate link).

Phiaton BT220NC Wireless Active Noise Cancelling Headphones

Phiaton BT220NC Wireless Active Noise Cancelling Headphones

My first thought upon opening the box for the Phiaton BT 220 NC Wireless Active Noise Cancelling Headphones (US$179.99 list price, $160.55 via affiliate link) was that for a wireless headphone, there were sure a lot of wires. There is a USB to micro-USB charging cable, an Everplay-X cable to let you listen to tunes from your iPhone or iPod touch even when the battery on the headphones isn’t charged up, and even two wires going from the receiver box to the earbuds. I don’t have anything against wires and cables; I just thought it was rather ironic that a “wireless” device came with so many cables.
