The best cheap Airpods under 130 euros

In this article we will find out what are the alternatives to the famous Airpods designed by the Apple company. All these pairs of wireless earbuds come with a charging case to charge the battery.

For those looking for better audio performance, you need headphones that support AptX and AAC codecs.

Another aspect to consider is the search for a pair of headphones that are great for noise cancellation. Of course, Apple’s Airpods are among the best for noise cancellation. For those who have the priority of finding earbuds that cancel noise at their best, then our advice is to go for products with a higher cost.

Some of these earphones come with an app that allows you to change some settings such as adjusting auto play or pausing when the earphones are not in use. These apps not only have firmware updates which are quite important, but also feature an equalizer to tweak the audio to your liking, including bass or treble.

Below we report the Airpods which in our opinion are among the best and cheapest:

VERSUS

  • The design leaves something to be desired

The Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 despite having a design that is not exactly beautiful and elegant, they offer a really great sound. In addition, the battery lasts for 9 hours, which becomes 36 if you keep them charged with the case.

The Bluetooth connection is also very stable, so these Airpods are also highly recommended.
