Apple’s AirPods Pro continue to impress with its sound quality and comfortable design. Their claim to fame also includes the ability to seamlessly connect with Apple devices as well as Active noise-cancelling (ANC). No, doubt the AirPods Pro are the top-rated truly wireless earbuds but they are expensive and cost much more than rival buds. But don’t worry, the competition is slowly catching up and brands are offering similar features at lower price points. Here are five truly wireless earbuds with ANC but cost half the price of the AirPods Pro.
