Truly Wireless Earbuds: Cheaper Alternatives

If you tuned into one of my earlier articles about Samsung’s galaxy buds,  you remember that I also mention Apple and Bose. You would also remember that I mentioned that the prices for their earbuds averaged about $199. Even though these headphones are paving the way for hand-free technology, you should’nt have to pay so much for it. They all come with the same  tech, just a different aesthetic and brand name. However, they are not the only brands making truly wireless headphones. Here are some cheaper alternatives that you, the consumer can look into.

Skullcandy’s  Push

One cheaper alternative is Skullcandy’s Push truly wireless earbuds.  they come in two colors; psycho-tropical teal (as shown in the image above) and gray. These earbuds are water resistant, so even though it probably isn’t recommended, you can keep the tunes playing while showering. it shares the same capability of the other earbuds on the market, such as volume control play/pause etc. Other than the price being a selling point, these earbuds have gel-fit technology making it extremely comfortable and locking in all sound to the user. The price for these earbuds are $129,  however Skullcandy is currently selling them for $99. Compared to the top brands, your saving about $99 and getting the same if not better quality.

These earbuds provide great sound quality,  and are very durable. Thanks to bluetooth 5.0, these earbuds provide effortless pairing; no more removing/adding a pair of headphones. Just like the Skullcandy these earbuds will come with multiple gel fits, so you will find the perfect fit for your ear. There are some rumors that compared to the Airpods the bass of these are non-existent, but I believe that boils down to personal preference. The price of these earbuds are $51.99 ($55.25 for the waterproof version) and currently available on Amazon. Click here to be re-directed to the buy page on Amazon.

Spotify on the Prowl; Crackdown on Ad Blockers

Spotify is a music streaming used by many people. The company makes money a number of ways, but the two ways they bring in the most is by paid subscribers and monetizing the stations with ads. The thing is that they’re plenty of users poaching off the free service by using ad blockers. To the user its no big deal, to them they can listen to their station ad free without paying $9.99 a month. This however, is big deal for Spotify because they are making a commission off those ads. It wouldn’t be noticable if it were a few users, but the number of users doing this is in the thousands and when it comes to monthly or quarterly audits, and they check the ratio of free users  to subscribe users,  the findings show a huge chunk of missing money from free users.Well turns out Spotify has had enough and wont take it anymore. They are taking a punitive approach to any user using ad blockers to get by. So it is highly advise that if you are doing this, stop or else your account will get suspended.
