Why wearing AirPods is no longer fashionable

AirPods have won the title of the most popular headphones, it seems, since their very announcement. Now you will not surprise anyone with white sticks sticking out of their ears. We see them everywhere: on the street, in public transport, at work. Yes, they are very easy to use, offer relatively good sound quality and cool design. People’s headphones – certainly. Fashionable – definitely not. Recently, all famous stars and people from the media space are increasingly choosing wired headphones. Today I propose to talk about the reasons for the outflow of the audience from the beloved gadget and discuss the future of wireless headphones in general.

AirPods are no longer as trendy as you might think.

If you think the AirPods’ success is related to high sound quality or ease of use, then you are greatly mistaken. Let’s remember how it all began. Apple said its tough word and simply removed 3.5 Jack from the brand new iPhone 7. Imagine how hard it hit the wired headphone market.

Fashion Headphones 2021

During this time, AirPods have become a real trend. A couple of years ago, on Instagram, young people were actively promoting new TWS headphones, and now, on the contrary, they are trying to move away from this. The networks even began to appear whole accountswhere stars are laid out with a classic wired headset. At first glance, it seems that this is at least silly, but in fact there is a reasonable explanation for everything.

Stranger Things stars Charlie Heaton and Natalia Dyer.

In the modern world, fashion is not only about clothes. Technique can also be fashionable, and fashion, as we know, is cyclical. In 2021, the so-called “Y2K aesthetic” is back with all the quirks that go with it. Such well-known publications as The Wall Steet Journal and Vogue… Bell-bottomed jeans, flashlight sleeves, bands like Electrophoresis and so on. You see, there is simply no place for AirPods.

You can often hear expressions like “It used to be more atmospheric.” In any case, I hear this all the time. Recently, I talked about my experience of listening to music through wired headphones and did not touch on the moments of aesthetics at all. If you only knew how many memories rushed into my head.

Wherever I was with them: I waited for my first love at the entrance, went on a hike with my grandfather, ran to training. You can talk about the wireless future as much as you want, but I can assure you, wires are aesthetics.

The old school is also slowly picking up the initiative.

Cons of wireless headphones

Yes, seamless switching between iPhone and Mac and the ability to connect two headsets to one device is cool, but wireless headphones have a lot of downsides.

First, wireless earbuds require regular charging. Moreover, if we take specifically AirPods, I miss the indicators that are here. Plus, you don’t always pay attention to them. Most often, headphones sit down at the most inopportune moment.

Charging AirPods is a real challenge for me.

For the modern movement for constant travel and outdoor activities, this looks irrational. Taught by the experience of our parents, we do not take a mortgage at twenty-three, but we strive to diversify our life as much as possible. AirPods don’t fit in here at all.

Secondly, the price. But this is twofold. It is unlikely that Johnny Depp’s daughter cannot afford to change AirPods Max every day, but the point is different. Headphones are initially a consumable item. We don’t rent a headset for ten years, we treat it differently. Forgotten in the subway – it’s okay. Left it with a friend – well, okay. This won’t work with AirPods, even if you’re using the basic version.

Third, terrible microphones. Comparison with modern architecture is very much asking for. Now we will not see new buildings in the Baroque style, because it is impractical. Considering that all young people are now obsessed with TikTok, you understand why wireless headphones are not being used properly.

Wired headphones are the perfect solution for TikTok.

On the other hand, messing with wires is also not comme il faut. Remember how users suffered from the perpetual confusion of earbuds for the first time. Plus, if you use an iPhone, you won’t be able to save on headphones. You will have to buy an adapter one way or another. Lightning-Jack, which broke literally every month.

In general, what is the conclusion: for everyone who had EarPods in the kit, I suggest at least sometimes getting oldies out of the box, and for the owners of new iPhones without a power supply, choose something better for themselves. What do you think about this, I propose to write in our Telegram chat… It will be interesting to read.
