Earphones are compatible with any device that has a headphone jack. They’re also cheap to replace (depending on which ones you have), and have a wide range as to what kind of quality you’re looking for. Many also claim they cancel out the cacophony of life more effectively than AirPods do, something that's much needed during those hectic morning commutes.

Many people also accuse AirPods of being a scam. They’re far too expensive, and are supposedly more delicate than those prices would have you assume.

The biggest drawback with most earphones is the wires. AirPods afford people the freedom of movement: there’s no tangling involved; no time wasted trying to smoothen out chords. There are endless possibilities of motion when you own AirPods.

Even those with wireless earphones have proclaimed buying AirPods is a life-changing experience. They're the future of audio listening as jacks are slowly being phased out. Not only can they sync up with devices like Macs and Apple Watches, but users have voice-activated Siri access. It’s like having your own personal DJ wherever you go.
