Stiftung Warentest: Other headphones Bluetooth Airpods Apple face

Apple is probably the best known manufacturer of wireless In-Ear headphones. The so-called "Airpods" of the brand are considered to be of particularly high quality and should have a high sound quality. But other headphones can match, such as Stiftung Warentest found out.

the Test has studied the consumer organisation, especially the comfort the longevity and pollutants in the products. "At the sound, we were very strict. It surprised us how many of these small devices provide a good quality. The old prejudice that the sound made worse by the Bluetooth Transmission, not been the case for a long time," says Peter Knaak from Stiftung Warentest compared to the mirror.

These wireless headphones are, according to Stiftung Warentest the best - also Airpods are

However, Stiftung Warentest also clear: headphones a question of taste and needs are. The Sony headphones have the best sound values and were able to reach with "very good" in the listening test, a rare result. However, the Airpods Pro Apple's stronger, when it comes to noise reduction .

For bargain hunters, there are also currently Aldi , where sustainability in the future, a greater role* to play a particular tempting offer: At the discount stores to cost of wireless headphones, see the Airpods suspiciously similar, just 24,99 Euro.

5. IGNITION: Cheap Airpods clones at Aldi - as good as the headphones in the case of Stiftung Warentest?

visually, the headphones "Maginon BIK-3", sold by Aldi this week, the Airpods from Apple come very close. How Techbook.de reported are the Bluetooth-Sensors is not in the headphones, but the supplied Case. A first indication of where it was saved.

But also the sound quality is clearly behind the head headphones the be tested by Stiftung Warentest. The sound was extremely flat, the bass and the highs and Lows of the Songs barely. Overall, the sound is coated with a Hall. If a response to Aldi , where least of all the own brands cheaper* become, for the bargain price is worth it, therefore, remains questionable.
