  1. AirPod Pro 

Apple’s AirPods have been an all-time favourite of many smart accessory consumers, especially those within the Apple community. Asides from being a high-tech gadget within this product category, the AirPods have formed a major input into fashion just like several other products released by the brand.

Surprisingly, there was a lot of negative sentiment around Apple’s AirPods when they were first launched in 2016. However, with time and due consideration of the value propositions of the product amidst consumers, Apple started to enjoy a high influx of purchase for the product line. 

Apple’s most recent AirPods – The AirPods pro was released in October 2019. Based on feedback from consumers and review scores on top tech blogs, the gadget has a great score for design and comfort, audio quality, battery life, and a fair score for value for money. Its score for value for money is tipped a little low due to the high cost of the product and existence of other suitable replacements which are offered at a fraction of the AirPod’s cost.
