Not to be compared with Apple’s AirPods which were launched in 2016, Nex Technologies wireless earbuds are yet to be launched and we cannot say they have a great sound quality with active noise cancellation like Apple’s AirPods. but we will be glad to lay hands on them and see how they feel and sound like.
