There are only a few weeks left before 2016 ends and we haven’t received any update on when Apple’s new wireless AirPods will be available. Originally it was planned to release in late October, but Apple said they needed “a little more time” before the totally wireless Bluetooth earphones were ready for the customers.
New Wireless Earbuds For Your Smartphone That Can Beat Apple's AirPods
Apple doesn't have any announcement on when will be the official date of the release of the Apple's Wireless Earphones which is called the AirPods. For more details regarding the delay, read it here.
According to KTLA5, here is the list of some of the Wireless or Bluetooth Earphones that you might want to consider while waiting for the Apple's AirPods.
These are geared towards working out, but you can use them every day. I like the rubber around the buds that help them hold in your ears. What I don't like is the dual bulkiness on both sides - there is a controller and a battery. These are sweat proof and give you an hour of music with just a 10-minute charge.
These earbuds have a neat feature - magnets on the back! Join them together and the earbuds automatically turn off. This is a big deal - it makes life easier and also means that your battery won't drain when you forget to turn them off. You can pair the PureBoom earbuds with 2 devices at once. Plus, you can use the button on them to activate Siri or Google Now. They're also sweat resistant!
These are my favorites out of the bunch. They're simple, lightweight, always stayed in my ears, and I hardly ever had to charge them. The only downside is that they don't look as premium as their $100 dollar price tag. Other than that, I ran a lot with these. They are a great pair of everyday wireless headphones that also make great workout headphones since they're sweat and splash proof too!

Consider these if you really want that AirPod experience. They are geared towards Android phones but I found they also work with iPhone as well. They are super minimalistic, which might be somewhat of a problem. For some reason, they always seemed to have a dead battery whenever I wanted to use them!
While waiting for the update regarding the Apple AirPods, it will be a nice move to try something else. The quality of the said earpods might beat the quality of the most awaited earphones.
