Let me start with the conclusion. I regret buying beats. Two or three thousand are expensive. I regret dead and feel sorry for my money. I think I bought AirPods too late. I should buy them earlier…

Beats: The sound quality does not match this price. It is really brainless bass. Although there is a headphone box, it is not portable enough. It will be uncomfortable if you wear them for a long time. I took it every day when I went out for the first few months. Later, I was too lazy to bring it. I bought a Razer’s pink-necked ears, which matched them very well. I don’t bother to take the headphones out several times in a month or two. The display on the table is pretty nice,

AirPods: The sound quality is not bad. This headset is not easy to fall off when hung on the ear. It is extremely convenient to carry. All the Bluetooth headsets currently on the market are not as good as this. The battery life is four or five hours. In five minutes, you can charge a lot of electricity. I prefer to listen to answer and watch live broadcasts, so I often wear headphones at night when I go to bed. It feels too cool to have no wires. It feels too late to buy it! The second-generation AirPods that are about to be released also add wireless charging. The price is estimated to be expensive. It is not necessary to buy a separate radio box.

Personal recommendation is to buy AirPods. More than 900 AirPods are very common when JD Taobao is doing activities, and the US version of AirPods can also be bought, there is no difference.

A lot of people watch it, let’s change it

(The following recommendations are based on the price just released)

The second-generation wireless has been used for more than a month, this time I will talk about how to buy the most cost-effective.

  1. The cheapest solution, you can buy a new American version of the second generation wired charging for about 1,000 yuan, sell the wired charging box, you can sell it for 400, and buy a wireless charging box from the Bank of China for 499 yuan, which costs about 1,100 in total. The US version is not so good to buy. It’s approaching June. The peak of returning from studying in the United States is coming. I was looking for someone to bring it. I once saw the 950 new US version of wired charging in Xianyu.
  2. A more convenient solution, buy a Hong Kong version of wired charging at around 1100, sell the wired charging box, you can sell it for 400, and then spend 499 to buy a wireless charging box from the Bank of China, a total of about 1,200, Hong Kong purchases a lot, Also faster,

I used the second plan, 1100 trustees bought the Hong Kong version of the wired charging, the box sold 411. The data cable sold 40, and I spent 499 to buy the National Bank wireless charging box, a total of 1148, the price is still good.

Poor students, toss, it’s a little bit less

Update on September 27,

I got on the car for the sixth time and got a lot of money. I overturned the car. I bought an AirPods 2 generation wired charging. After disassembly, there are obvious signs of use. If the front bar is returned, everyone got on the car carefully.

I happen to have both beats and AirPods. Although I don’t know much about headphones, I usually like to listen to songs and use them a lot, so let’s talk about it briefly.

Beats solo3 was purchased at the end of 2016. At that time, the main machine was 6s; AirPods was only recently purchased. The original price of 1276 in the Apple store was purchased separately. The main machine is currently an xr.

Sound quality

Because both are Bluetooth headsets, do not expect too much sound quality. The sound quality of the two personally feels similar. The bass of beats is better, and the sound quality of AirPods is basically similar to that of earpods given by buying mobile phones (someone said that Not as good as earpods). The sound insulation effect of beats is relatively good. You can’t hear the voice of the surrounding environment when listening to songs at a normal volume, while the sound insulation effect of AirPods is poor, but this is not necessarily a disadvantage in some use environments.

Wearing comfort

In terms of wearing, AirPods are undoubtedly the most ergonomically designed. Wearing for a long time can basically not feel the presence of headphones. It is really cool without wires. It is very suitable for walking. Even if you are running, it will not fall from your ears due to vibration. come out. Although the beats itself is not heavy, it is still a bit heavy to wear on the head, and it is a bit tight on the head. It is not very comfortable to wear for a long time, but it also guarantees a good sound insulation effect.

But AirPods has a disadvantage in that it is particularly easy to hide dirt, charging box and earphones are both, I have to wipe and clean my obsessive-compulsive disorder frequently.

Battery life

The official data is that AirPods can listen to songs for 5 hours on a single charge. Also, they can be charged at any time by putting them in the charging box when not in use, which is quite convenient. The battery life of beats is quite strong. It can listen to songs for more than 40 hours when it is full. I usually only charge it once every few weeks.


The AirPods are very small after being put in the charging case. They can be put in a pocket and are very portable. It is more friendly for me who don’t like to bring a bag when I go out. The beat is not too big after being folded, but it must be carried in a bag.

Based on the above points, AirPods are better than beats in terms of wearing comfort and portability. They are suitable for commuting and sports. In addition, when wearing AirPods, you can basically hear the surrounding voices without taking off headphones. Beats are better than AirPods in terms of sound quality and battery life. I usually wear them at home or in my bedroom, and I rarely take them out. It is a bit unsafe if I can’t hear the sound at all when I walk.

Both headsets are star products that match the iPhone, and the decision is made according to personal needs and usage scenarios. After I bought AirPods, the frequency of using beats was greatly reduced, because AirPods are too comfortable to wear and cover a wider range of usage scenarios.
