Apple made quite a faux pas when it comes to the AirPods a few weeks ago. After promising fans that it will release the wireless earphones immediately, it then suffered massive delays in doing so.

Now, the much hyped earphones are out and first day buyers already received their units. While the AirPods offer wireless music freedom, it may still be not the best pair of earphones in the market. There are still a few headsets out there that offer the same wireless music playback as the Apple AirPods.

Earphones normally come in various form factors. The AirPods are what?s known as an in-ear earphones. The same goes for the Powerbeats3 and BeatsX wireless earphones. However, in-ear earphones sometimes suffer from limited range of frequencies due to the size of the audio hardware. For those who are serious about their music would have to opt for earphones with bigger voice coils for better audio performance. This is where on-ear and over-the-ear earphones come to play.
