Alternatives to Apple Airpods

Hi all,

Just need some recommendation of a wireless earbuds.

I have been looking at some wireless earbuds for awhile, a lot of them are in-ear headphones (is that the correct term for it?) which I find it uncomfortable.

I'm looking for a type of earbuds that are shaped like airpods because it fits well and it's comfortable for me. I actually found and bought Audio-Technica ATH-C200BT, but sadly, it's too big for my ears.

I'm hoping that I can find a cheaper alternative of the airpods because they are quite ex.

Thank you all.

If you are using an apple device, I would just save up some money and get the airpods as it provides all the apple functionalities, rather than spend money trying to find cheaper replacements that ends up with you spending more money and nothing that fits.

And trust me, I bought too many cheaper tws earbuds and majority of them suck ass

I'm in the same situation like you. I dont like in-ear earbud, I feel very uncomfortable. I still prefer the default earpiece from apple or samsung (previous one, not the current AKG tuned)

Too bad, until now I still cannot find similar type with wireless functionality except airpod or those airpod looks alike china brand

Recently I found Mi QCY T3. However, I wonder how was the audio output quality, Bluetooth 5.0. So tempting to get one
