I saw a thousand stories on Airpods on Snapchat within the past week. “ People with Airpods”, bet your airports can’t do that”, just people constantly throwing shade at the lucky Airpods owner. People love it. Honestly, with or without Airpods, you are part of the wave and kind of enjoy it. Make jokes, be the part of the joke, be the joke whatever floats your boat.

This is the Hype part, but are airports actually worth the hype. They seem to have the fantastic sound quality, look rad and no wires, but these things come at a hefty price and thus the whole meme scene.

You can enjoy the cool technical part in many new Bluetooth devices in the market following the launch of the Airpods. Many companies launched their similar versions, bose, Jabra is some of the good ones but their cost is in the high range only.

Then there is the market of the cheap ones that are just fake with no sound quality, battery life or anything.

Somewhere between these two come the ones that are medium price range with presentable quality and looks.
