Let’s face it: At $144, Apple AirPods are pretty expensive.
While the earbuds deliver premium audio for iPhone and Android users alike, you can find a much cheaper (and equally well-made) version for just a fraction of the price. Enter the Haylou GT1 Earbuds, a pair of $30 true wireless earbuds that reviewers are calling a great alternative, and in some cases, even better than the pair from Apple.
The Haylou earbuds feature Bluetooth 5.0, so they can easily pair with just about any smartphone, tablet and laptop — including the iPhone 11, Samsung Galaxy S10, iPad Pro, Google Pixel 4, MacBook and more. Armed with up to 12 hours of battery life, these earbuds can get you through the day with ease. The GT1s are lightweight and come with a compact storage case that gives the wireless earbuds a quick charge.
This pair have multi-touch functions (play/pause, skipping tracks and more), as well as a direct connection to your smartphone’s voice assistant (Google Assistant, Apple Siri, Samsung’s Bixby and others) and they’re also IPX5 waterproof. They even feature digital noise-cancelling, so you can just focus on your favorite music and podcasts instead of the background noise around you.
As for audio quality, the GT1s are no slouch either. The pair delivers soft and clear audio with full HiFi stereo and punchy and heart-thumping bass. The Haylou GT1 Earbuds are a good wallet-friendly pick, thanks to their ease-of-use, long battery life, high audio quality, compact design and, oh yeah, super low $30 price point.
“I am very happy with these Wireless Earbuds! They sound very clear! They are a great size! The earbuds do not feel heavy on my ears,” a delighted shopper raved. “I kept the regular-sized eartips because they fit very well in my ear and are very comfortable. The box includes small and large eartips if the regular ones do not fit you. As soon as you remove the earbuds from the charging case and put them in your ear they connect through bluetooth (after the initial pairing) and you can play your music right away. I made several phone calls while speaking through the earbuds and they could hear me clearly. The touch ability works very well! This product is definitely worth the price!”
“These earbuds were very intuitive to use and are very close to the simplicity of the AirPods,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “You simply take them out of the case and they automatically connect to your phone very quickly. Once you're done you place them back in the charging case and they instantly disconnect and start charging. These are amazing at there price point, and are much better than other more expensive models! 100% would recommend!”
