AirPods are the best selling wireless earbuds. But their sound quality, battery life, and environmental impact could be better. AirPods pair really easily with other Apple products, but their sound quality is just okay. There are a lot of other wireless earbuds that sound better than AirPods. They also lack extra features like water resistance or noise cancellation. And if you've owned AirPods for a few years there's a good chance that your battery life has gotten worse. Just because they are the most ubiquitous doesn't mean they're the best.
