headphone buying guide earbuds apple airpods

Apple is one of the most well-known and popular brands in the tech industry. With high-quality products like the iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch at the top of everyone’s wish list, it’s not all that hard to see why they are so popular. Apple has revolutionized smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches with its sleek, user-friendly style that people can’t get enough of. So when it comes to wireless earbuds, Apple has made no exception. The AirPods are one of the best fully wireless earbuds money can buy — although merely a decent upgrade from the original model — and the new version with hands-free Siri and optional wireless charging continues that tradition.

From Apple to Walmart, here are the best places to buy AirPods.
