There are so many Bluetooth headphones on the market today, it is really hard to know which is the best, or which would be the best gift to give. To be sure, almost any pair will be a welcome gift, but one pair does stand apart from the crowd and that is Apple’s AirPods.
Apple device user, pairing your AirPods with your Mac, iPhone or iPad is just super simple. The good news is, you can also pair your AirPods to any Bluetooth device, like a Windows PC, so while most Apple products only work with other Apple products, AirPods cross platforms nicely thanks to complying with the Bluetooth standard.
What makes the AirPods the Bluetooth headphones to beat are their size, weight, sound quality and compact charging case. As far as untethered Bluetooth headphones go, the sounds quality is tough to beat. What I mean by this is that there is no cable connecting
AirPods have been hard to get ahold of, but Apple seems to have caught up with demand and they are once again readily available. That said, I expect they will be a very popular item this holiday season, so I would not procrastinate if you have these on your gift list. Grab them as soon as you see them.
Bose SoundSport Free. They are larger than AirPods and relatively new to the market, but build on the success of their tethered version, so I suspect these are an excellent choice as well.
Whatever you decide, you will have one very lucky recipient to receive a pair of Bluetooth headphones this holiday season.
