In today’s rapidly developing world of modern era technology is one of the most important elements of society. It is also a quite dynamic sector rapidly spreading its wings to fulfill human needs and also to cope with the newer world. From the early 19th century till now, technology has always found a way to make lives comfortable for us humans. Even in extremely adverse situations, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, technology has helped us to continue with our daily work smoothly.
One of the most common technological outcomes that we can see everywhere nowadays is earphones or headphones. These have become such an inseparable part of our lives that one cannot leave their houses without their earphones these days. Just like with every problem comes a solution similarly with every technological advantage comes a hassle. Here the hassle was the long entangling wires that connected the two buds on both sides. But, as technology has proven throughout the years, it solves its problems. From this emerged this amazing idea of wireless earphones or earbuds.
Even though Apple was the first among the major companies to bring such a device to the market, it was not so widespread in India as compared to other countries around the globe. In a third-world country such as India, not everyone can buy an iPhone let alone use their wireless earphones named Airpods. Thus, it provided an opportunity to other, less costly, companies to quickly jump up on the bandwagon and started producing wireless earphones that cost less than the one from Apple. Soon enough, substitutes for Airpods started flooding the Indian markets and as a result of this, the competition in the wireless earbuds market started rising as well.
From the variety of options to choose from usually, everyone had their separate specialty. Some provided the best comfort while some others came with superior sound quality. Some were priced at as high as Rs 15k while some were just about Rs 1k in price. Very few, amongst all these came with both proper sound quality and optimum comfort and were also made available at an affordable price. Out of the few that fulfilled all the above-mentioned criteria, the most compatible for daily use, in my opinion, has to be the boAtAirdopes 121v2.
The boAt Airdopes 121 v2 wireless earphones are not very costly and also can provide a big difference in your day-to-day lives, especially when it offers you many more features than any other normal wireless earphone.
