    MY HONEST OPINION

    • Written by Mariana B from Sandy

    ok so I am a 13 y/o who likes to be trendy and keep up with trends... so I decided to purchase AirPods even though I really didn’t k ow if they were worth it. BUT LET ME TELL YOU they are 1000000%%%% worth it. The sound is great, the battery is absolutely amazing... if the AirPods are completely dead you can just throw them in the case and after 5 mins they’ll be 50% charged. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND AND HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL

    5TH PAIR OF 2ND GENS

    • Written by Jeffery C from Bloomington

    I originally bought the 1st gen airpods and i had them for a year with absolutely NO problems, BEST product i’ve purchased. but you know after a year it starts to show some wear but they were still good i just thought it was time “FoR aN uPgRaDe” WRONG. i’ve gone through 5 pairs of the airpod 2s, yes, FIVE. and every time i have to go to my local apple store in the mall and get them replaced because one of the ears just COMPLETELY goes bad. and not only that but you can tell the difference between the 1s and 2s because the 2s feel like cheep plastic wank compared to the 1s. moral of the story, if you have airpod 1s, keep them because it’s not an upgrade it’s a downgrade and i am so disappointed.

    don't even waste your time or money

    • Written by Raven D from Windsor

    i love apple but these are a huuuge disappointment. they NEVER stay in your ear no matter what you do, i even order silicone covers for them to see if they would stay i my ear and nope they keep sliding out. i only had them for a week and i'm already returning them because they are just not worth it. the sound quality isn't that great and actually they're not even that loud even when i turn the music up all the way. and not to mention that the case and pods get dirty so quickly it's kind of gross lol. yeah don't waste your money yall

    they are the worst

    • Written by ShemikA J from Bellmawr

    They are the absolute worst. Each ear pod only last for a max of 2 hours. The max!! so you never can wear both of them at the same time or you will have no headset. i thought it was just my pair, then my friend stated his was the EXACT SAME WAY. Do you buy them. i know alot of us are die hard apple fans, but this is by far the worst product that they have made. i have had alot of head sets that normally range from $40 to $80. Just stick with the other brands because this was a complete waste of money,

    Disappointing

    • Written by Heather A from Evergreen Park

    Come on, you’ve had years to update these headphones. First of all, they don’t fit well in my ears. It feels like they’re going to pop out. Secondly, and related to the first problem, they leak soumd. I want to be quiet and considerate among my noisy rude commuters who blare their music on the train, thank you. Lastly, the sound quality is meh. Do better.

    Good Sound, but Limited Functions

    • Written by Wayne Y from Sunnyvale

    I do like my AirPods a lot, as far as the sound quality and convenience. They're better than my Plantronics BackBeats that I use for exercise, and there's a good richness to the sound that you don't get from the free headphones that come with an iPhone. My AirPods pair quickly with my iPhone as soon as I put them in my ears, and I haven't had any connection issues. The range is pretty good, too; better than my BackBeats. That said, the AirPods are very limited in design and function. You can set the left earpiece to either play/stop or skip forward with a double tap. And that's about it. There's no volume up/down or skip back. I also don't like how slippery smooth the AirPods are. They can easily slip out of your fingers if you're not careful. I wonder if Apple made them that way so people lose them more easily... Overall I enjoy my AirPods and use them regularly. They should be priced more around $100, but with Apple products you pay a premium.

    Waste of money

    I have been using these for less than 1 month and the left one COMPLETELY stopped working. Don’t ever waste your money on these and get a cheaper option cause it is not worth it!!

    Great sound. Light. Easy to carry. The best.

    • Written by Fayaz K from North York

    My right 1st generation AirPod started getting less sound and the battery was dying fast. So I bought the PowerBeats Pro because I am a gym person. Love them while working out but don't like them for casual listening or other stuff. Because they are a bit bulky. That is why I decided to buy the 2ng Gen Airpods and I am really glad I did it. The sound is perfect, very easy to carry around because of the small factor charging case and very light.

    Didn't get the wireless charging case as I don't use wireless charger that much. Even with my iPhone XS Max. So better save some bucks if you don't use wireless charging that much.

    So I have the Airpods for casual stuff and Powerbeats Pro for workouts. My wallet is empty but I just love their roles in different environment. I'll save up on other things. Listening to music is my priority.

    A major step backwards!

    • Written by James S from Mill valley

    If you are thinking of updating to the new AirPods from the porevious version, DO NOT DO IT!

    I upgraded because they were supposed to be a more seamless connection, leading to increased productivity. It’s been the precise opposite. They’re not ready for prime time. It’s as though they forgot to do the QA process before releasing.

    I consistently have problems where only one earbud connects and I have to put them back in the case, sometimes even having to unpair them. The time I spend connecting has increased 10x from the gen 1 product.

    I should note that I even had to return a pair and get them exchanged for new ones. The problem is happening again on the new pair. Shame on you Apple for taking money on a product that’s not ready for release.

    Very good, but...

    • Written by Bruce F from MINNEAPOLIS

    Disclaimer: I am an Apple addict, and fussy about my music (classical and rock). I got these to go along with my Pioneer Rays (High end and expensive) earphones. The wires bothered me quite a bit.These sound very good, but perhaps slightly below the Rayz, (I’m still getting used to them). Some reviewers say they stay in your ears very well, even with sweating or exercising. My left one falls out very easily. Maybe it’s just something about that ear, but I worry about it hitting the floor and breaking (someone said the replacements are way too expensive). I am considering returning them, but I like the sound, and the wireless feature is really nice. As others have commented, Apple doesn’t give their stuff away, do they?

    Will be choosing Bose next time

    • Written by Layla P from Little Rock

    I bought the AirPods around 3 months ago and I'm already pretty regretful. I love apple products and usually have no problems whatsoever but these have really been irritating. The right AirPod has completely stopped worked and it only displays the left AirPod and case percentage when it comes up on my phone or laptop. The right AirPod went from working perfectly fine, to not at all. While both of them worked I noticed that not only did they fall out quite frequently but the sound quality wasn't the best either. I love the idea of AirPods and I think they're cool, but to be frank they are uncomfortable and a waste of time for me. They worked well the first couple months and I noticed a gradual decline in the quality of the product. They look cool and have a nice design but they are nothing exceptional and if you really want wireless earbuds I urge you to go with Bose instead, the AirPods work just as well as the earbuds that come with your phone. would not recommend .

    My favorites

    • Written by Jennifer J from Surprise

    I have had a number of Bluetooth headphones over the years and these are my favorites. I have had them for about a year. I am able to wear headphones all day at work (self employed finish carpenter/painter), so long battery life is important. I keep the charging case in my truck and swap out left or right earbuds individually as the battery gets low, so I basically have unlimited listening time. After pretty much using them 10-12 hrs a day for a year, the battery life is fading slightly but not significantly. The sound quality is fine, I mostly listen to books or podcasts. I don’t mind that they are not noise cancelling, as it’s actually better for me to be able to also hear what’s going on around me. Super easy connecting to my iPhone SE and iPad mini 4, sometimes I have to refresh the connection in settings when switching devices but usually it’s seamless. The Bluetooth range is decent, I have left my phone plugged in to charge and can usually get a good 20-30’ away if there aren’t too many walls in the way. I have worn them while painting, installing roof shingles, hanging drywall, taping, mowing the lawn, working out, and trail running, and have only had them fall out when I accidentally hit them with something. (I have smallish ears) They have also survived massive amounts of dust, occasional rain, and lots of sweat. I wish the find function was better, as I recently lost the case and one earbud and have not been able to find it. However that is my fault due to carelessness, not Apple. Some kind of built in tracker in the case would be nice, so if you are very prone to misplacing small bits of technology they might not be great for you. I am leaving this review as I purchase a replacement pair, a little sad with myself for not being careful but unwilling to live without the convenience of small, wireless, and reliable earbuds. Oh, and a note on price- for someone like me who uses them all day, every day, they are actually quite reasonable. Yes there are cheaper Bluetooth options, but that usually comes at the expense of battery life, ease of charging, and durability. If I hadn’t lost them, I imagine they would have lasted at least another year, but even so, they cost me less than $0.50 a day. I spend more than that on a cup of coffee I drink in 10 minutes.

    But there is close to 1% difference between the 1st Gen Airpods & the 2nd Gen Airpods. (standard version)

    Constant static, interference, cutting out

    • Written by David D from New York

    The new airpods work fine when I'm at home but walk down any busy street in New York and there's constant static, interference, and cutting out. It sounds like trying to get a bad radio transmission. Have updated to the latest firmware (1A673) and still having the same issue. It's really frustrating and makes it impossible to enjoy the product.

    Great sound at the sacrifice of talk-time, fit, and customer support.

    • Written by P R from Anytown

    I purchased these AirPods with great anticipation. Regrettably, they fell short of Apple’s specifications and my expectations. While the sound reproduction is nearly as impressive as top-end quality headphones, the talk time is dismal. I have never achieved the two-hour talk as advertised in the Apple specifications. On a full charge, the battery conks out below 90 minutes to just over 95 minutes. I should have returned the AirPods within the first 30 days for a full refund but I gave the device and Apple the benefit of the doubt, relying instead on Apple’s one-year warranty.

    After attempting some unsuccessful troubleshooting tecniques through Apple Care, Apple suggested returning the AirPods under warranty for a replacement. To my amazement, Apple would only ship me a new charger or a new set of AirPods, but not both. I would have to go through the return process twice in order to be supplied with a fully new product if the replacement charger didn’t solve the issue.

    The fit of the AirPods is also less than adequate and they’re likely to tumble out of the ear quite effortlessly. This annoyance is easily remedied however, with the purchase of inexpensive AirPods ear hooks. I sampled three different brands before deciding on the AhaStyle model with the sound quality enhancement. They keep the AirPods secured under most conditions and are very confortable to wear.

    Connection difficulties have also been an issue, especially with an Android device or a Bluetooth equipped television.

    Hindsight being what it is, I probably should have waited for the second generation AirPods to appear with their increased talk-time. Thankfully, I made my AirPods purchase with my American Express credit card which provides me with an extended warranty and buyer’s assurance benefits. I’m almost afraid to ask Apple what my options are if the new charger and AirPods exchange won’t solve the unacceptable talk-time issue.
