AirPods – OnePlus Buds Pro, Sony WF-1000XM4, Google Pixel Buds-A Series

AirPods are wireless Bluetooth earbuds designed by Apple Inc. They were first announced on September 7, 2016 alongside the iPhone 7. Within two years, they became Apple’s most popular accessory. They are Apple’s entry-level wireless headphones, sold alongside the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max.

OnePlus Buds Pro, Sony WF-1000XM4, Google Pixel Buds-A Series are few to compete with AirPods.

OnePlus Buds Pro

The OnePlus Buds Pro is a super-stylish pair of buds that looks great, is comfortable to wear, and that comes with a premium charging case that enables incredibly quick Warp Charging to give up to 10 hours of playback from a 10-minute charge.

It sounds great, too, handling a variety of sources and styles with aplomb and offering a multitude of modes to tweak your listening profile. But the real standout feature is its active noise cancellation performance, which doesn’t quite top the best noise-cancelling headphones, but beats the AirPods Pro in this regard. Extra treats for OnePlus users include a gaming mode and fast pairing, and if you have a OnePlus phone then this is a fine choice to consider.

Sony WF-1000XM4

The Sony WF-1000XM4 costs a bit more than the AirPods Pro, which doesn’t usually bode well for an alternative. But sometimes it’s worth paying a bit extra to get more, and Sony certainly hasn’t held back on its XM series formula when it comes to packing in the features.

As a result, sound quality and ANC effectiveness are among the best in their class — on par with or better than the AirPods Pro — while the IPX4 rating makes these Sony earbuds just as durable as Apple’s premier model. Battery life is a clear win for the WF-1000XM4, with 7 to 8 hours of playback in noise cancellation mode available from every charge.

Google Pixel Buds-A Series

iPhone users have got multiple models of AirPods to consider, but what about Android smartphone owners? We’d point them in the direction of the Pixel Buds A-Series, the latest AirPods alternatives to be launched by the search giant and their best effort to date.

They’re light and comfortable, and while noise cancelling is off the menu, they do a good job of isolating you. Your colour choices are either white or ‘Dark Olive’ and the earbuds also boast IPX4 water resistance so you can use them for general exercise and running.

The five-hour battery life isn’t exactly class-leading but should be enough for most people. You also get another 20 or so from the carry case. Pairing Pixel Buds A-Series is extremely simple, especially if you’re using an Android smartphone or tablet that boasts the Fast Pair feature.

MacBook – Dell XPS 13 OLED, Asus ZenBook 13 OLED

Dell XPS 13 OLED

Dell’s latest XPS 13 model is based on 11th-generation Core i5 and i7 processors. Apple’s MacBook Pro 13, meanwhile, features Apple’s new in-house M1 processor as does the MacBook Air. Design-wise, the latest XPS 13 measures 0.58 inches thick and weighs around 2.64 pounds. The 13-inch MacBook Pro is slightly thicker and heavier at 0.61 inches and 3.1 pounds, while the MacBook Air is 0.63 inches thick and weighs 2.8 pounds. These are all just numbers, however, as you won’t notice any significant differences when toting them from place to place.

Under the hood, the Dell XPS 13 offers up to 32GB of system memory and up to 2TB of storage. The 13-inch MacBook Pro offers the same amount of system memory but up to 2TB of storage. The MacBook Air can be configured with up to 16GB of memory and 2TB of storage.

Of the three, the Dell XPS 13 provides more connectivity with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm audio jack. It even ships with a USB-C to USB-A adapter so you can connect an external keyboard or mouse. Some configurations include touch-based screens with a UHD+ resolution as well, and there’s the option of an OLED panel that offers some of the best colors and contrast you’ll find on a laptop today.

Asus ZenBook 13 OLED

If you’re looking for something with the premium design and build of a MacBook, the Asus ZenBook 13 OLED UM325 is the ultimate solution for you. It has a newly designed keyboard that is perfect to type on and a large trackpad reminiscent of the MacBook. Its display is technically lower resolution at 1080p, but as an OLED panel, colors pop, and everything looks beautiful on it.

The UM325 isn’t just about looks, though. It packs either a Ryzen 5 or 7 processor, neither of which slouch for heavy tasks. AMD’s latest processors are closer in performance to Apple’s M1 processor, making the ZenBook a better competitor performance-wise than Intel-based laptops. You can max out the memory at 16GB and get up to a 512GB SSD. Ports are decent, if a bit limited, with a USB Type-A, two USB-C ports, and an HDMI slot — more ports than a MacBook but without Thunderbolt support.

All of this adds up to an experience that is very similar to the MacBook, which makes the Asus UM325 a perfect alternative.
