Whenever you read the title of this article, you’d immediately relate to at least 5 people in your life that are rocking this, in my humble opinion, useless technology! Don’t get me wrong, some of them actually need it and actually believe that it comes handy in a situation or two, but does it really?
Yet again, we know that a lot are using it because of the fact that Apple, and other cell phone manufacturers, have removed the headphone jack from their phones, but that’s not enough reason to go for the Airpods, right?
So, to be able to prove our point, we’ve compiled for you 4 OBVIOUS reasons why we believe that Airpods does not make you look as cool as you think!
They Cost a Small Fortune!
Believe it or not, this little piece of plastic and naive technology will cost you around LE 2,949 on Souq.com. That’s a one month salary for some people here in Egypt. Oh, and did we mention that they’ve released a newer model that will cost way more? Well, HYG!
You Can Easily Lose Them!
Imagine this: You think about it thoroughly, save up, you think about it some more, you decide that it will make you look cool, you buy them, then you lose them at Wadi Degla Protectorate and never find them again because they ran out of charge! Far fetched, well not all, because this literal story has happened with a friend of mine and it broke his heart!
It’s Said that Airpods, and Other Wireless Devices, Can Cause Cancer!
Yeah, yeah we know what you’re going to say about this; Everything causes cancer these days! Well, does that mean that we add some more to the bunch? It can never be healthy to have something that omits Bluetooth right next to your brain!
We’re no doctors, but FYI there was a petition signed that warns about the negative side effects of EMF exposure that could include: “increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans.”
They’re Not Even That Good!
Alright, let’s assume that all what’s mentioned above is not true and we’re as wrong as they come! Airpods are not as good as you think, quality of sound wise! If you can afford the LE 3,000 then just increase that budget by 1,000 and buy yourself a Bose Bluetooth Headphones that will blow you away!
