These AirPods alternatives offer wireless sound for under $40

Get the AirTaps now at 62 percent off MSRP.

Many industry experts say that AirPods are the best thing Apple has ever made. But that cocktail of elegant design and advanced audio comes at a price. If you can’t stomach paying $160 for a pair of earbuds, the AirTaps Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds may interest you. These buds offer crisp sound in a beautiful package, and they are now just $36.99 with a charging case at the PopSci Shop.

At first glance, you could be forgiven for mistaking AirTaps for an Apple product. These lightweight earbuds are shaped just like AirPods, and they have the same all-white finish. Just as importantly, they are truly wireless — there isn’t even a band linking the two earpieces.

You can listen for three hours straight on a full charge, and the AirTaps utilize Bluetooth 4.2 for wireless sound. The audio quality is excellent, with crisp highs and powerful lows. With a range of 10 meters, you also have total freedom of movement.

While you’re on the move, you can recharge the AirTaps with the supplied charging case. This pocket-friendly accessory holds enough juice to charge the earbuds 10 times over.

Normally $99.90, the AirTaps are now only $36.99 with this deal.
