While Sept. 16 is the debut of the new iPhone 7, the introduction of Apple's AirPods is coming later this year.

While the new iPhones will come with wired ear buds, the new wireless AirPods will be sold separately -- at a cost of $159.

If you want to wait to try out AirPods until the price comes down, here are some less expensive wireless headphone alternatives you can buy at various retailers. (Prices and availability may vary, and some of these models can also be found on sale.)
