How much do AirPods cost?

There is a wave of discrimination going on online for Apple users of the iPhone who don’t have AirPods.

I know. It’s ridiculous but it’s happening.

Basically the theme is that AirPod owners are the elite iPhone users and those with regular wired headsets are, well, ghetto. 🤦🏾‍♀️

What’s giving them the audacity?

The cost of AirPods and their functionalities. Apple lists them on their site for $159 (about K1900).

What do AirPods do?

According to Apple, ‘AirPods will forever change the way you use headphones. Whenever you pull your AirPods out of the charging case, they instantly turn on and connect to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac. Audio automatically plays as soon as you put them in your ears and pauses when you take them out. To adjust the volume, change the song, make a call, or even get directions, just double-tap to activate Siri.

Driven by the custom Apple W1 chip, AirPods use optical sensors and a motion accelerometer to detect when they’re in your ears. Whether you’re using both AirPods or just one, the W1 chip automatically routes the audio and engages the microphone. And when you’re on a call or talking to Siri, an additional accelerometer works with beamforming microphones to filter out background noise and focus on the sound of your voice. Because the ultralow-power W1 chip manages battery life so well, AirPods deliver an incredible 5 hours of listening time on one charge. And they’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time. Need a quick charge? Just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time.’

Why the discrimination against non-AirPod users?

Because they can’t afford them. That’s all.

If you’re that pressed to fit in with theAirPod clique here’s 2 cheap alternatives:

  1. The alternatives though 😂

  2. Well…

    There is Kabulonga Main and now I hear that there is Kabulonga Extension and finally just by the side of Kabulonga. Like you are not in Kabulonga, Kabulonga Extension or Kalingalinga…you are just by the side. Like…near enough to see Kabulonga, walk/drive through Kabulonga on your way home. Where you live and where people think you live doesn’t really matter. What matters is that you know which side of the road you live on.

  3. How good us the sound quality, thanks for the alternatives lol
