Most of us probably all had the same reaction when Apple's famous AirPods came out: "This sounds like a recipe for disaster." What if they fall off and you lose them? What if one half just suddenly disappears into thin air, rendering the other half useless? Considering it's designed with a tail, what if someone just snatches them from your ear? Highly possible, especially if you're one to go out a lot.
But picture this: earbuds that were actually made to latch onto and sit in your ear. In the tech world, they're officially called True Wireless Earphones—much like the AirPods—no annoying cables, no strings attached. They're highly convenient for music lovers who commute, jog, or work out a lot. But really, it's perfect for just about anyone who'd rather not have to deal with chords that always find a way to get entangled in your bag or pockets.
