Maybe the beatsX is the W1 alternative.
Pros: closer fit so more sound deadening, a conventional control mechanism, cord, $20 less, conventual looks, different colours.
Negs: less able to hear around you, Beats bass emphasis, cord, less overall endurance, have to connect a cord to charge compared with airpods case solution).
I think the airpods look OK, people just don't expect earphones to look that way. I think if they were a dark colour people would be less confronted.
