    To be honest, I purchased these Chinese Bluetooth earbuds from AliBaba around 6 years ago which pretty much is the same design. So in my eyes, Apple is the one that copied or maybe it was a "coincidence" that Apple somehow created the same product many years later. Just look at selfie sticks, first created by a Chinese man many many years before the selfie sticks came into a trend but some how some man "created" that product and started a major trend. All I'm saying is no matter if it's your first prototype or however shit or useless something may look or be to you at the time, get your idea patented. The Chinese are great at invented and creating products no one can compare to based on the quality and prices they put on their products. Despite my name I'm a white American and just believe white people just copy everything and put on a price tag which they know they would sell at because so many humans are fucking retarded.

    Apple is never first, they take an existing idea and push millions into marketing. They do make those products better (initially) tho. After I got 25$ buds and they sounded better than AirPods, i just.. no.

    I don’t see a problem with cheaper “AirPods clones.” They are way overpriced. Although it’s obviously wrong to steal your reviews or pretend they’re real Apple AirPods.

    To be completly honest, my S10 still got an headpfone jack but personally i just prefere the wireless solution. In my opinion it gives you a feeling of beeing free from cables, and beeing able to have two different people listen to the same musik via the same pair of headpfones without the need to constantly be 30 cm away form each other is great, for example while riding bike, my gf and myself share the same buds, but if I am faster for a bit we do not have to worry about the cable ripping the bud out of one persons ear or even tear the headpfones apart. And also, for me, the cable was always the point of failure in a pair of headpfones; but no cable means no broken cables

    Just to put some perspective on “ridiculing” Apple for removing the headphone jack that was invented in the 70’s..... it would be like complaining you had to buy a new TV with HDMI input when blu ray replaced DVD. It’s called progression. If you complained you are just a broke Neanderthal.

    I wouldn't say copied, The technology was really young, meaning that the average person wouldn't want to spend that much money on the ability to not have to use a dongle. Now you can pick up some wireless buds for a pretty reasonable price. If apple hadn't of jumped the gun on the airpods there would have been far less backlash because of it.

    So, no headphone jacks on the phone? I can just use wireless earbuds. No headphone jack I've ever used has stayed in my ears. So, I've bought a few over the years. I have some in the car, some in the truck, some in my bag... on and on. And I lose the utility of all of them? Not. Now I'll have a phone with no headphone jack and still have to use wired headphones because my gym has TVs all over the place and their machines are made for wired headphones. Sigh. I'll lose the sub $250 headphone/earbud because NONE have ever stayed in my ear and constantly fall out, and still have to use wired ones because... my gym, my computer... forced obsolescence.
