These ASOS Earbuds Look Oddly Similar To Apple AiPods But Are Useless

If you just want to show off and don’t need any the AirPods’ functionality, then these earbuds from ASOS are what you need.

Buying Apple’s earbuds is clearly not a modest way to tell the world that you are rich when you are willing to pay for a high-priced accessory and accept that the replacement cost is also high in case you lost one of the earbuds.

But if you just want to show off and don’t need any the AirPods’ functionality, then this is what you need. ASOS, a fashion and cosmetics retailer, is selling fake wireless earbuds at a reasonable price, $9.5 for each, which means you will need to pay around $20 for a pair. This price, when compared with a brand new pair of AirPods ($150 on Amazon and $200 for an extra wireless charging case), is still crazily cheap.

So the question is, can you listen to music with these earbuds? Sadly, no. Then what can they do? Nothing. But ASOS hopes that you will be willing to pay $10 for a piece of plastic just to prove to others that you are rich. But in fact, we don’t really know if they really think that.

The whole thing reminds us of an experiment called “Pavlov’s dog.” The only difference is that instead of learning how to drool whenever the bell rings, we gradually develop the habit of thinking the wearer is rich whenever we see anything looking similar to the AirPods, even when it can even play music.

And if you think those non-functional earbuds are a joke, then you must have never heard of ASOS. Last year, this online retailer caused a storm on the internet with some weird fashion stuff, for example, a dress looking like a bag of onions, or a mask looking like a chain, etc.

When talking about true wireless earbuds, the Apple AirPods are still dominating the market ever since their debut in 2016. Therefore, it’s no surprise that how the world’s best-selling wireless earbuds can have a distinct influence on our collective culture. Maybe for some, that’s enough to explain why someone would be willing to pay $20 for a piece of useless plastic to put on their ears.
