  • 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 ultra-low-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)

      Exceptional!

      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.

      THIS IS THE FUTURE AKFBKSNF

      ok so I've only had these for a few hours, but I have to say I am totally amazed rn. Like let's forget for a second all the complaints about "no improvement in ok so I've only had these for a few hours, but I have to say I am totally amazed rn. Like let's forget for a second all the complaints about "no improvement in sound from normal headphones" and "you have to put them back in the case" and "these sound the same." Now let's focus on how LITERALLY the sound can go through FREGGIN WALLS. I can finally listen to music while straightening my hair with out seating my headphone wires off! All while my phone is in my room charging!! (By the way this totally eliminates the can't charge and use headphones problem with the iphone 7. The AirPods never claimed to have " improved sound quality" they promised to be wireless. And they truly are!! Lastly, any other 90s or older kids here?! The reason I have zero complaints is because I'm having the same feeling with these as I did when I first traded in my Nokia flip phone for the first ever iPhone!! Again, THE FUTURE! so anyway only question I have is can you skip the song like you can with the normal earphones??

      Connection fails all the time. Major hassle

      I have a set of wireless earbuds from Plantronics that connect to my iPhone seamlessly. And I can switch them between my iPhone and Mac seemlessly. These Air I have a set of wireless earbuds from Plantronics that connect to my iPhone seamlessly. And I can switch them between my iPhone and Mac seemlessly. These Air Pods do none of that. Once I connect them to my Mac (which is not an easy thing to accomplish), I cannot get them to switch back to my iPhone, even when the Mac is shut down. In addition, I cannot tell if you have to have them in the charging case in order to get them to connect, or they have to be out of the case. The bluetooth sync button is on the case, so I guess they have to be in the case? If they were "it just works" Apple hardware, then re-connection to iPhone after use on a Mac should just happen, maybe if only by selecting which Audio output you want (on the Phone) - which I do, but they still won't connect. In order to get them to connect to what you want, when you want you basically have to put them in the case, Forget them on the device you want to connect to, and even sometimes disable and re-enable bluetooth on that device, and then go thru the whole procedure as if they were new - and even after that they do not connect. These are nothing but a huge hastle. $159 worth of junk and Apple blitzkrieg marketing.

      Excellent product!

      I wasn’t a fan of these silly looking things. But I got them as a gift and tried it out. I gotta say I’m amazed how much tech they have stuffed into it. Sounds I wasn’t a fan of these silly looking things. But I got them as a gift and tried it out. I gotta say I’m amazed how much tech they have stuffed into it. Sounds so good. Definitely worth it. I still think it looks kinda odd though.
