  • Overview

    Wireless. Effortless. Magical.

    AirPods will forever change the way you use headphones. Whenever you pull your AirPods out of the charging case, they instantly turn on and connect to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac.(1) Audio automatically plays as soon as you put them in your ears and pauses when you take them out. To adjust the volume, change the song, make a call, or even get directions, just double-tap to activate Siri.

    Driven by the custom Apple W1 chip, AirPods use optical sensors and a motion accelerometer to detect when they’re in your ears. Whether you’re using both AirPods or just one, the W1 chip automatically routes the audio and engages the microphone. And when you’re on a call or talking to Siri, an additional accelerometer works with beamforming microphones to filter out background noise and focus on the sound of your voice. Because the ultralow-power W1 chip manages battery life so well, AirPods deliver an industry-leading 5 hours of listening time on one charge.(2) And they’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time.(3) Need a quick charge? Just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time.(4)

These are simple to use, sound great, and are great for so many activities including: running, commute to work on the train, listening to podcasts and music, and making your friends jealous. If you're on the fence (as I was) try them out and you will love them. One of the best products Apple has made, it follows the simplistic and high quality design this company is revered for. Great job, Apple!

      Nice! link once and voila works flawlessly every time.

      awesome sound. you can use in one ear at a time, when you are biking , walking around doing home stuff and still be cognizant of sounds and things around you. t awesome sound. you can use in one ear at a time, when you are biking , walking around doing home stuff and still be cognizant of sounds and things around you. the best feature is of course the bluetooth connectivity thats so simple. open the case and put them in your ears. no buttons to press, no shenanigans at all. drawbacks- no colors only white for now. water resistant- maybe maybe not. and if someway they can get rid of the longer microphone stick sticking out of the ears.

I've always hated dealing with the chords on the regular earbuds, and now that I can listen to music and movies while I am doing another task, it is the best thing in the world. The AirPods allow me to access information, call my mom, or even turn up the volume without even reaching FOR MY PHONE. The sound is superb as well as the feel. Another thing, they chose SO FREAKING FAST when you put them in the charging case. After being gone all day, they were at 15%, and with only 10 minutes of charging, they were at 80%! So basically, GET THIS FREAKING PRODUCT.

      Terrific, But Remember It's First Gen

      I've been regularly using my AirPods for about a month now, and these are by far the greatest wireless earphones I've ever bought overall because of the flexibi I've been regularly using my AirPods for about a month now, and these are by far the greatest wireless earphones I've ever bought overall because of the flexibility and connectivity of its "wirelessness" and the portability of the charging case it comes in. Because of the W1 chip, the connectivity across my mac, iPhone, iPad, and even friends' Apple devices is very quick (as compared to Jaybird BlueBuds), although it isn't always lighting fast; the Bose Soundsport wireless headphones connect even faster (and even to two devices simultaneously!) However, the fit and functionality of the AirPods beat these two brands and others by far. Automatic Ear Detection, automatic microphone switching (yes, there is a mic on each of the AirPods), and a simple double-tap for play/pause or Siri is very convenient. It's important to keep in mind that if the EarPods didn't fit well with your ears, AirPods unfortunately have no flexibility to accomodate your ears (sorry ears, you're missing out). Yes, the sound is great, and the battery life is decent (especially because of the fast charging with the case), but since it is only first generation, AirPods do lack certain features of common sense such as additional on-AirPod gestures for volume control or multiple-device connection. Although, overall, if you're okay with all the things that it lacks, AirPods give an incredible bang for your buck––They are, by far, one of the greatest accessories made by Apple.
