I want to go up and give them a shake when I see people walking with Apple AirPods. “You have paid too much for these! And they’re not sweat-proof!” Yeah, little-known fact: AirPods do not qualify for any damage related to liquid. And it is not covered by the standard warranty.

Fortunately, there are plenty of cheap AirPods alternatives, many of which are able to do a strong workout. Here’s a big example, for a limited period, and while supplies last, a truly-wireless EarFun Free updated earphones amount to $32.49 with a 20 percent off coupon and EARFUNFR promotional code.

These look like countless other earbuds at first sight that you saw. They do come in a superb compact USB-C charging case, not Micro-USB port, as well as supporting Bluetooth 5.0. Better yet, that case may be wirelessly charged: simply plug it into any Qi pad.

EarFun is promising listen time for up to 6 hours before the earbuds have to return and up to four full refills before the case itself have to be refilled. Total time for listening: up to 24 hours. After only 10 minutes of charging, EarFun also promises up to two hours of playtime.

Similarly, surprising is that the earbuds are classified as IPX7 so that they are not only water-resistant, they are waterproof. I wouldn’t take them to swim, for they would almost certainly come loose, but you could theoretically shower.
