  • 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-engineered 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 incredible five 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 three hours of listening time.(4)

      Best pair of truly wireless earphones I have ever owned. These are simple to use, sound great, and are great for so many activities including: running, commute Best pair of truly wireless earphones I have ever owned. 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.

      Excellent, but it is overprice because connectivity's ability

      I have owned multiple Bluetooth earphones for years and from different prices, and I say they are on average without a justified price. Let's see: Pros: E I have owned multiple Bluetooth earphones for years and from different prices, and I say they are on average without a justified price. Let's see: Pros: Easy to pair (just opening the box to connect any paired device; moreover, it is easy to pair the iPods with the iPhone and others) Great sound. I do not understand other reviews; for instance, they really sound great on my Microsoft Surface table. Cool. Portability. They are in the top with their close competitors (in this aspect). Cons: Students or hard-workers: Do you connect your smartphone and computer at the same earphones while you work, study (at library for example), and others? Even they can be paired with multiple devices, only one device can be used at once. My Jaybirds' and TaoTronics' earphones can at three times less cost. Ohhhh. In short, they are good because portability, yet they are at low cost level earphones because connectivity.

      Terrible with my MacBook Pro

      Sound is constantly cutting out, and often very poor quality when listening on my MacBook Pro. I've tried every possible solution to this problem, and can only Sound is constantly cutting out, and often very poor quality when listening on my MacBook Pro. I've tried every possible solution to this problem, and can only ever get them working properly temporarily. They do work fine with my IPhone, so they're worth having, but I've been really irritated that I need a separate set of earbuds to use with my laptop.
