Differences between real and fake earpods on AliExpress

With a price that in some cases is 10 to 20 times lower than the original AirPods, you might ask yourself where the real differences between these earpods are. Can we justify the price level of Apple’s earpods, or can we conclude that the products are overpriced? The only thing you have to remember, is that when you are buying fake products, everything about them was designed with one purpose in mind: copying the looks of the original.

So you’re dealing with a manufacturer who has tried to make the product look as similar as possible to the original, without charging a high price for it. Despite the fact that the difference in quality of some counterfeit products is of a very high level, a counterfeit product will generally never be better than the original. This all has to do with the rule that copycat products are usually only created to have the same looks as the original.

AirPods fake vs. real
Are you going to purchase fake AirPods? Then you have to take into account that the manufacturer wanted to replicate the looks and functions as good as possible. Imitating the appearance is not that difficult. Many fake AirPods are almost the same as the original. But the chipset is often different from the real AirPods. So you have to pay extra attention to that when you buy the alternative AirPods. The versions in this article may already have been renewed with better chips that also make the user experience even better. Of course we will update this article as soon as there is more news about new versions of these fake AirPods.

What should you pay attention to when buying alternative earpods on AliExpress?

AliExpress is full of Airpods alternatives. They often look the same, but still there can be some differences between manufacturers or specific versions. Wondering what to pay attention to if you want to buy the earpods? Let me give you some quick hints before you start the search:

Reviews: how many people have already bought the earplugs and are satisfied with them?
Delivery time: when does AliExpress expect to deliver the shipment? This can sometimes vary by weeks.
Battery life: how many hours can you listen to your tunes? And what is the capacity of the charging case?
Bluetooth: BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) is sometimes used, because it saves a lot on energy consumption.
iOS or Android: which operating systems do the earphones work with? Do you need the latest iOS version for support (from Siri) for example?
Charging port: do the earplugs use USB-C or still Micro-USB?
Options: is there voice control, noise reduction, GPS, in-ear sensor, wireless charging or tap control?

Sometimes it’s better to wait for the second edition

When a new product comes onto the market from large and well-known companies such as Apple or Samsung, small mistakes often occur. This while they have spent months designing and testing the products. Just think of Apple’s ‘Bend-gate’, or Samsung’s spontaneously burning Note smartphones.

It works exactly the same with counterfeit products, because those products also have to be made over and over again. And because there is often a reason to bring these counterfeit products to market as quickly as possible, this sometimes comes at the expense of quality. So sometimes it’s better to wait a few weeks for a second version, where the first mistakes have already been found… and fixed.
