I was in the market for earbuds back in November and made a mistake. I don’t want you to do the same thing. I got the Bose earbuds over Apple.
They were “supposedly” water resistant. Well, they weren’t. It’s been a huge pain to get a new pair, and now I was told I have to purchase a new pair. That isn’t happening.
Bose was pretty clunky. It was challenging to pair them sometimes with devices, and the app didn’t work great. The sound was good, but that was it. The battery life was horrible. I was always running out of power.
So I said screw it, I’m going to Apple (which I should have done in the first place).
If you are looking for wireless earbuds, look no further than Apple Earpods. They are simple to set up (nothing to do), pretty good charge, and the sound is very good. They work very well for phone calls. It literally feels like nothing is in your ear, which is way different than Bose.
Two of my friends got caught in the rain, the earpods worked the next day. I got sweat into my Bose, and they never worked again.
When I’m running, earpods never move. Bose ones did and I would have to adjust them at some point during my run.
The only thing Bose has over Apple is the sound, which is better. But Apple has everything else by a long shot.
Bottom line: Apple knows how to make better products than anyone else.
