A man recently shared that he used replica AirPods and boasted about its quality.
Here is what he said:
I used to be a Jabra Sport Elite fan. Until they started hurting after wearing them for more than 1.5 hours. It was during this period that AirPods became the latest tech craze. However, as a broke student, this meant purchasing them = eat grass for 6 months.
Then I stumbled upon the random chinese replicas, discovered more models, sellers, chips, features and just went down the rabbithole.
As of writing this post, I can safely say today’s replica AirPods have come a long way (AirPods Max also have horh). Battery life is fantastic, transparency and noise cancellation works perfectly (I compared to my brothers’ retail AirPods).
Sound quality: 9/10 Honestly, these reps have much better sound quality than my previous V4.8 (AirPods Pro Gen1 rep). And I don’t know why some people complained about the bass, it’s actually great! However, it doesn’t get as loud as my V4.8, as the V5.1 using 7mm drivers, while the V4.8 are based on 13mm drivers.
ANC: 8/10 I have tried original AirPods Pro 2. And I have to say that ANC is almost 1:1. That’s great for this price. No, the original Pro2’s are not blocking out all noises for 100%. It’s just reducing the amount of noises you hear, mostly in a quiet way.
Transparency: 10/10 Absolutely amazing, original AP Pro 2’s are just a tiny bit better than the V5.1.
Force touch controls: 10/10 Can’t complain about all of the controls. They work just fine, and I hope they do work anytime.
Microphone quality: 8/10 Absolutely fine. Records fine, call quality is good too. Could be a little bit clearer, but it’s okay considering the “low” price I got them for.
Spatial audio: 7/10 Works, but I’m never gonna use it. Chinese voice plays when switching between Spatial audio modes. Battery life: 9/10 Used for almost 3h, with 36% volume, and still had 62% remaining. Keep in mind that it’s the first day, so this numbers will probably change in the future.
Expect around 80SGD in damage
