I'm on the fence about Apple's AirPods because of the "dangling stick" and because they're "look at me!" white.
The Muse 5’s least impressive feature might be their design – it’s a bit like you’re putting bulky buds you found at the local gas station in your ears, with the plastic construction and contrasting color plastic ring on each unit.
So in reading this review at TechCrunch, I was hopeful to see a worthy alternative. The review overall is positive, but doesn't sway me.
What I really want are AirPods that are all black.
