Apple produces the best wireless headphones on the market. They are so great that even Android users want to use them. But the question arises: can you connect AirPods to a smartphone from another brand? Let’s find out.
Starting with some obvious facts: AirPods offer outstanding sound quality, active noise cancellation, and convenient control. This is what makes them so attractive to those who value product quality and personal comfort.
However, there are some nuances for Android users. They won’t be able to access Siri, the voice assistant. Nevertheless, they can still use the headphones for listening to music and making phone calls over mobile and internet connections.
All wireless headphones connect to mobile devices through Bluetooth, a standard wireless module found in all modern gadgets. That’s why AirPods work seamlessly not only within the Apple ecosystem.
