  • 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 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.

      AirPods are awesome

      So after a long wait, I finally got them and this is my review 1. Design, they are really awesome and u can't feel them at all, so you should take care not to So after a long wait, I finally got them and this is my review 1. Design, they are really awesome and u can't feel them at all, so you should take care not to lose them 2. Pairing is very easy, just open the case and that's it, it's paired on all ur devices 3. Battery life which is I guess the most important thing, I tried them in gym for like 2 hrs and the charge dropped to 80% almost , I usually listen to music at 60% or 55% volume, so you can say like 10% per hr, also the case is really great, it's very fast in charging the AirPods, within 10 minutes I got like 40% 4. Siri and accelerometer works fine, but u need to double tap with little force 5. Proximity sensor has some bug I guess specially when switching from one device to another like from iPhone to iPad, so it stops working sometimes until you go to settings and turn off automatic ear detection and turn back on again, I think this is a software/ firmware , also I think this proximity sensor depends on ur ear 6. Controls, I think Apple should have added basic controls like volume up/down , skip tracks, move forward etc, as Siri is not very practical specially in crowded areas, it will be awkward to speak "volume up", "skip track" etc, it works flawlessly but not practical for basic controls to talk to Siri, I hope this will be added in future firmwares, as there is already accelerometer so its just a programming issue to add these features So in general I recommend this product and I rated it as 5, as it's really nice

      Better than wire EarPods

      I've owned the AirPods for about a month and have used them running outside and on the treadmill. They seem to stay in better than the EarPods probably due to I've owned the AirPods for about a month and have used them running outside and on the treadmill. They seem to stay in better than the EarPods probably due to not having the wires "pull down on them". I do have to periodically readjust their fit after sweating, but they haven't fallen out once. The sound is good. Glad I waited and bought a pair.

      Good headphones make you listen to more music

Sound is accurate unlike Beats, so don't expect to hear overwhelming bass. All genres will sound very good, and perhaps more importantly, you'll be more likely to listen to your music throughout the day because you won't have to worry about wires. You already know about the features of these headphones. If you were reasonably happy with EarPods and you can afford the cost of AirPods, what are you waiting for?
