My 15-year old wants a pair of AirPods, but I think they are a ripoff. Plus a new version is rumored around the corner.

What is the best knockoff that folks here have used? I saw some on Amazon ranging from around $30 to $80. Still a rip, but much less for when she loses one ;)

I saw this one as an option and wonder if any good:

I bought my faux-Pods from Amazon. My particular pair aren't listed anymore, but for less than $15, they were a pretty good buy.

This pair is little more expensive, but from what I can tell, they're close to what I received.

Someday I might get a better pair, but this will at least help me decide if I would use them (and keep up with them!) if I got them without the stress of an expensive purchase.
