When a friend posted the news on Facebook, I found it mind-boggling. It’s almost as if the price is simply too much for an earpiece (called AirPods) but I mustn’t be too quick to judge, after all there are many brands with similar earpiece or headphones with the same price or even higher–beats by Dre comes to mind.
But more so, the iPhone is known for genuine class and it’s widely respected across the mobile world thus, it’s safe to say the earpiece will definitely be worth the money.
Am not a big Apple fan but I won’t deny the fact that their earpiece which I have been using for over 6 months hasn’t failed me in any way. The earpiece is almost indestructible as I’ve subjected it to all the elements and yet, it stands firm.
It cost me $30 whereas I could’ve gotten many earpiece at a lesser price which by the way, I’ve tried and they’ve all failed in terms of durability, performance and build quality. I can assure you I got a good value for my hard-earned money.
It oozes class and it depicts the look of a premium earpiece. Apple sealed the earphone port in a bid to release a better water-resistant phone and thus, the earphones will only be operational using bluetooth. But then again, I ponder if wireless can deliver the same high quality that the wired earpiece delivers effortlessly.
At $159 the bluetooth earpiece will cost over N65,000 which is an amount enough to buy the flagship device of some other brands (Infinix Note 3 costs N64,000) while other competitive devices in Nigeria costs less (Gionee M5 costs less than N65000)
But I can’t stop to ponder if a $159 earpiece is worth buying and I will like to ask it here if it’s worth it in any way? I will like to read comments and opinions on it.
Will you buy the Apple AirPods at $159?
