If you are looking for a great pair of wireless headphones, there are plenty of great options on the market.

To help you select the wireless headphones that are best suited for your wants, needs, and budget, we’ll take a look at some of the top Apple Airpod alternatives available in 2022. Plus, we’ll explore how you can protect your expensive earbuds with an industry-leading extended warranty from Upsie.

Top Apple AirPod Alternatives

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro

As one of Apple’s top competitors, it’s no surprise that Samsung has released a pair of wireless earbuds to rival Apple AirPods. In addition to looking luxurious and sounding great, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro comes equipped with impressive features, including active noise-canceling, complete waterproofing, and the activation of “ambient mode” when the earbuds detect that you are speaking.
Some of the features of these earbuds – such as Samsung’s 360 Audio – will only work with Samsung smartphones. Yet, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro will work with iPhones and Android phones.

Amazon Echo Buds 2

The Amazon Echo Buds 2 offer excellent sound quality, complete with active noise-canceling and an adjustable ambient listening mode. These earbuds also pair quite nicely with the Amazon Alexa personal assistant, enabling you to communicate with Amazon Alexa anytime you are wearing the Amazon Echo Buds 2.

Jabra Elite Active 75t

From a highly comfortable and adjustable fit to superb sound quality to IP57 waterproofing, there are plenty of things to like about the Jabra Elite Active 75t earbuds. What’s impressive about these earbuds is that they can rival the quality of more expensive earbuds while only costing about $100. So if you are looking to get as much bang for your buck as possible, the Jabra Elite Active 75t earbuds are a great option.

Cambridge Audio Melomania One Plus

The Cambridge Audio Melomania One Plus earbuds top Apple Airpods in terms of sound quality and battery life while costing only $100. The one knock against these earbuds is that they do not offer active noise-canceling. However, if you don’t frequently use your wireless earbuds in noisy environments, the Cambridge earbuds are a good option. Their great sound quality and battery life make them an excellent option for AirPod alternatives.

Sony WF-1000XM4

With a price tag nearing $300, the Sony WF-1000XM4 earbuds are the only entry on our list that will cost you more than Apple AirPods. In exchange for this steeper price tag, you can look forward to exceptional sound quality and active noise-canceling. These buds also offer a long battery life and an IPX4 waterproof rating.

Protect Your Wireless Earbuds With an Extended Warranty From Upsie

Wireless earbuds are expensive and vulnerable to damage. Even a single drop can damage the earbuds enough to interfere with their functionality. Unfortunately, even the best earbuds are not completely waterproof. Water damage is one of the most common reasons why costly earbuds are rendered inoperable.
Whether you accidentally run your earbuds through the washing machine, drop them in the bathtub or swimming pool, or wear them outside during a thunderstorm, there are plenty of ways that water can destroy a pair of earbuds. In addition to water damage, there are numerous other ways a pair of wireless earbuds can meet their untimely end.
Thankfully, purchasing an earbud extended warranty from Upsie enables you to protect your costly earbuds against all forms of damage. Upsie’s warranties offer security against liquid damage, drops, and other accidents. Plus, Upsie protects against defects and wear. As a result, customers with an Upsie warranty have complete peace of mind. Best of all, Upsie’s warranties are affordable and cost up to 70 percent less than warranties sold elsewhere.
