Unfortunately, there are not all types of headphones that I can use, due to the fact that I have excess wax in my ears and on medical advice.
Does anyone know of a model that has good latency, preferably bluetooth 5.1 or higher, that is preferably in ear cushions although, in the situation I am in, even those similar to AirPods would work, perhaps, that are discreet and cheap?
I would like to use them in synema, for example, hence the question of size.

If your planning on using on a Cinema...
If your planning to use them on a Cinema, you could always go for bone conduction headphones, or with noise canceling if your considering using them where noise will be loud enough that hearing stuff on the headphones might be hard. If your going brands similar to airpods, you could always get some of the cheeper airpod replicas.
or check this site out,
for some more good alternatives.
not AirPods pro stile
I'm looking for headphones, but not the rubberized AirPods style.
From what I saw in the reviews, and I'm sorry if I'm wrong, but these headphones recommended not in this format.
Is there another recommendation?
The bone-conductors called Aftershocks!
Afterchocks are good headphones, and they're bone-conducting. I don't have any, but I used a pair just as a sampling some time ago. as well as keeping your ear holes open, they can be worn with earplugs in ... or just your fingers. you can still hear through the headphones too. By the way, Aftershocks go on the back of your head, so it looks like "ear glasses." the arms of these headphones are on your cheeks/ temples--cheeks at the point where the ear piece is, you know? Anyway, they sound very good, and although the volume limit's not so high you'd be blasted out if you turned them up, you can still hear conversations around you/respond, too. These would be great also for people working with O&M specialists/OrCam as well.
What are the BEATS headphones ... really?
I received some headphones which say they're called BEATS X. This is what VoiceOver reports on my phone. However, the headphones plug into the phone with a lightening cable--the only way they can be used--, and they immediately connect to my phone. here's the problem, though. "BEATS modifier X" is what VoiceOver says on the first screen after the connecti9on is made. A beep is heard during this but before I swipe to the "connect" button. On the next page, "Lightening" is heard, and "close" is also heard at the end of the listing of items. during all this, if VoiceOver should stop speaking for some reason, and it restarts, some of it's cut off. When going into my Bluetooth settings, the headphones supposedly BEATS x are labeled as lightening and cannot be renamed. Like I said, these headphones only connect with the lightening cable you'd find for the iPhone charger. however, they're like the wired pair of headphones--remote on the right-hand side with volume up, microphone, and volume down respectively. When looking online later--this was at Christmas 2022--, I found that the BEATS x headphones actually have a magnetic thing going on. They're mainly wireless with a neck band, so they don't fall off when using them. my version didn't have such items/just the regular Apple headphone style which is wired. I found a lot more things online which weren't true of these headphones, but one thing was--pressing microphone twice moves to next track/three times in a row moves back to previous track or beginning of current track. That being said, what are the true BEATS X headphones? Are they the magnetic ones--take one earbud out and click it to its partner to stop playback--or the wired ones, which don't have the rubber case for them. I guess the online resources--from a person titled as Flossy Carter on Youtube--have such a case which looks pretty cool, according to him.
