For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Aukey to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a set of Aukey's EP-N7 True Wireless Earbuds, which feature Active Noise Cancellation technology and have a wire-free design.

Priced at $65, the True Wireless Earbuds connect to an iPhone or Apple device over Bluetooth and are ideal for those who are looking for a wireless headphone option but need something more affordable than the AirPods or AirPods Pro.

Design wise, the True Wireless Earbuds have silicone tips that fit into the ear along with a stem at the bottom, similar to the AirPods. They're available in a sleek black color, and come with a small charging case that adds additional power. There are three sets of silicone eartips in small, medium, and large, allowing for a good fit in the ear, which can improve the noise cancellation capabilities.

According to Aukey, the True Wireless Earbuds are equipped with a hybrid Active Noise Cancellation feature that uses internal and external noise cancelling microphone systems. The headphones are able to detect a maximum of 35 decibels of ambient noise, blocking it out.

Inside, there are 8mm titanium dynamic drivers for clear sound and deep bass, and with two microphones in each earbud, calls sound crisp and clear too. Background noise is suppressed on calls, to make sure the person on the other end hears you.

Like the AirPods Pro, the Aukey earbuds have a Transparency Mode that allows you to hear what's happening around you so you don't miss traffic cues or important announcements when using the earbuds.

There are several built-in tap gestures for music control purposes. A tap on either earbud, for example, plays/pauses a song, while a double tap switches tracks and a touch and hold switches sound modes. You can wear the earbuds when working out and when it's raining outside thanks to IPX5 water resistance to protect from sweat and other moisture exposure.

The charging case can be recharged over USB-C, so it's convenient to use alongside a USB-C MacBook or iPad, and a 1.5 hour charge provides up to 25 hours of battery life while on the go.

Anyone know anyone who has actually won a giveaway?? :)

I have not searched recently, but last time I did I found these posts from previous winners.

If you follow these threads, you will often see comments like these from prize winners.

I've seen posts in these threads where forum members mentioned they have won in these contests and received their prize.

Edit: Here are a few comments I was able to find.

Anyone know if there is a review where they specifically compare the noise cancellation to the Pros? I always carry my regular 2nd gen and use it a ton more that my pros but the pros are better when snowblowing and mowing. For $70 if they are decent I can give my wife my pros and still have music when using the equipment.

Dammit I can't enter as I'm not in the US :(

Perhaps if I change my name to "ApplePie McDonald" I might fool them into thinking I'm from the US ?

The difference between wireless earbuds and true wireless earbuds?
Wireless earbuds aren't connected to the device playing audio. True wireless earbuds aren't even connected from the left speaker to the right.
