    Not the best sound, but perfect for the commute

    No commute is longer than 1.5 hours for me even with trains being late or cancelled, so the 5 hours at once is perfect battery life, they connect seamlessly and I forget they're there straight away.
    The sound of these is what I would describe as 'pretty good', but I work in audio and frequently listen to music through Multi-Thousand pound monitor and amp setups, so for the average Joe, they sound really good, and I don't really care when I'm on a noisy train because the convenience and comfort is more than enough to make up for this.

    AirPods are outstanding.

    They fit perfectly, sound far better than I imagined, have great battery life, and are so simple to use. In typical apple form everything is very thought out and well designed.

    Much better than I expected.

    I’ve never been a fan of Apples earphones then EarPods, they always fell out of my ears, I’ve been thinking for a while about getting the AirPods then decided to today. I can’t believe how well they stay in my ears, I was expecting them to constantly fall out but they don’t, I think they use magic or something to keep them in my ears, they sound incredible too, for something so small and light they pack a lot of punch. I would definitely recommend these. They just work.

    The best product of 2016 (or 2017?)

    This is by far the best product that Apple made in the year of 2016. Even though they had a production issues in late 2016 and early 2017, now it is available almost everywhere.

    It is very convenient, and once you start using it, you cannot go back to wired one.

    Don't believe the hype, THESE DO FALL OUT!

    I have a love / hate relationship with these earphones. While the sound quality and connectivity are impressive, they do not operate as advertised. I just can't stand watching the tv commercials Apple has for these. People walking on walls and others doing skateboard tricks in the middle of train stations. Completely inaccurate. THEY DO FALL OUT! Even with minimal head movement. Mine slowly move away from my ears and then fall out with the slightest head movement. Even while standing completely still. The sound quality is great if I hold them in my ears with my fingers. Tried them at the gym only to repeatedly embarrass myself. If they fall out in a dry ear, guess what happens once things get sweaty? I am so frustrated picking these up off the floor I sometimes feel like hurling them at a brick wall. Of course the $219 price tag is the only reason why I haven't. I cannot recommend these to anyone unless you are Michelangelo's David.

    These are amazing! They are very portable and the design is so cool! The sound is super clear and the fact that I can charge them once I put them back in the case and not having to worry about battery life is awesome!

    AirPods create ecstasy with my music.

    Apple! All I can say is you have finally created a great ear bud. And it is wireless and Bluetooth, and on top of it all it’s little case charges them. Right out of the box, the ease of set up, the diversity of use with all my devices is nothing short of spectacular. And then when I experience the music it is like I am in surroundsound. And my life is enhanced as I smile listening to the beautiful sound. In addition to beautiful sound and access to Siri at my fingertips, they are dropdead gorgeous!

    True innovation

    I was amazed with the product quality and how seamless the product could be. I was not really always comfortable with the wired headsets. Products from other company are not so easy. This product is just truly made my life easy and works less complication. Thank you Apple.

    Near perfect for the type they are!

    First, I am one who doesn't believe there is one perfect headphone out there. These are in ear, but more similar to an over the ear, open air config. You are still part of your environment, not blocking out interaction with those around you, or sounds around you. The music is just included in the environment. So what does that mean? If you are looking for something to use in a noisy environment like a commuter train, stay away from these. Not powerful enough and not sealed enough to block out sounds. If you love kickin' bass, pulsing edm, well these might not do it for you--get your Beats, or some Sony.

    Clean. Very clean sound. Neutral. Not punchy, doesn't favor lows, mids, or highs. Jazz sound great on them. All music sounds good, but understand that choices are made in every headphone design. I like the choices made, but I have 3 other sets of headphones. I wouldn't use these on a plane, on a train, or anyplace I want to cut out environmental noise. But if I were walking in the city and needed to be aware of my surrounding, definitely these are the goto. In the airport when needing to be aware of announcements-yes...on the plane, put away and put on the Beats Studio... Jazz at home? Yes, but my Huge Audio Tecnica's would be my goto. Workouts? Dunno yet. I have a great pair of $25 bt headphones I've been using for that, but I may try these once. Not sure how sweat-proof they are...

    So the only headphones I a really disappointed in are the wired headphones that came with my iPhone 8. The sound quality has really dropped over the years and generations of iPhones. Not sure if Apple really wants that representing their brand. Might be better to just drop the headphones and only include the dongle if that's the quality of sound they deliver. Just saying.

    through the wash

    I don't usually give 5 stars for anything however for the current times these are simple, good sounding reliable wireless headphones. Siri works well and the quality of voice when talking to another iPhone is exceptional. They don't seem to come out of my ears like the wired phones do. I ride to work and they sit tight. I recently accidentally put them through my work clothes wash cycle: 2.5hrs of 60 degree C with a prewash - dried them out and they are working. I was quite relieved although happy enough to go out and get another pair. They are a big step up from wired headphones. I've only had them 6 weeks and not tried any others but would so far highly recommend them.

    They will exceed your highest expectations.

    I can not express how well these headphones work. You simply take them out of the case, put them in your ears, and hit play!! The battery life is wonderful and the sound quality is extremely nice. Easily the best headphones i've purchased and they are more than worthy of the higher price point they come with.

    I love Apple. I own A Macbook Pro, Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad and the list goes on. The ONE product I swore I would never buy were the AirPods. Why spend that much money on earphones that do not have Bose quality sound? I bought them for my fiance who fell in love with them. I tried hers, and wouldn't you know, I fell for them too.

    They are the most durable and flawless product to come out from the new Apple lineup. They stay charged for multiple days, can survive multiple drops and they sound fantastic! The phone calls are crystal clear and they work beautifully. They never fall out of my ears, even during vigorous workouts. Their functionality is impeccable. The way they work with the iPhone and Watch is seamless.

    I cannot say enough about them. If, like me, you were on the fence - jump over and enjoy. Message to Apple; for your next life-changing product make sure you put the AirPod team in charge of finalizing the end result!

    Almost as if they weren't even worth it...

    I was pretty excited to get and use these for running after hearing so many good things about them when people worked out... I don't if my ear holes are bigger or something but they were WORTHLESS when trying to workout, they would constantly get loose or slip out of my ear. Sweat wasn't even a factor! It even burns me up more when I go on the apple site and see PICTURES of people RUNNING with this on... Sure their great for talking on the phone, listening to music and all that stuff. The case it comes in is nice, the sound quality is great. BUT I bought it for a main purpose and it failed.

    Amazing design

    If I was to list all the things I love about AirPods I would take forever to write this review. Why didn’t I buy them sooner?

    Fit nicely inside hearing protectors too

    Airpods do fit nicely inside my (Pelton) hearing protectors, so I can protect my hearing while I use woodworking machinery and still enjoy music. That's in addition to all their other plusses: great sound, they're comfortable and don't fall out, and are easy to switch between devices and other bluetooth accessories. Pleased that I chose these instead of other very good alternatives.

    It fails connecting with the phone the airports connect whenever they want...

    Awesome in so many ways

    First off, evident by their size and weight, you aren't going to get killer bass out of these. But the sound is remarkable nonetheless. For my 1+ hour bike commute, they rule. I can still hear traffic, and the music (unless loud traffic) and a tad of wind noise. They stay in my ears, connect automatically in a flash, stay charged the whole time. Now I can tap one ear to advance the track, tap the other to pause (like when I meet another cyclist). I have a great remote control (an iPhone 7) that allows me to control and play music, podcasts, use Siri (although I can configure the airpods to query Siri by simply tapping the pod, but traveling rapidly by bike there's too much wind noise). These are much more discreet than wearing something over my head or connected via cable to a device. And very little sound leakage, so I can crank tunes in bed while my wife is reading or nodding off. They are comfortable and stay put in my ears (unlike wired pods, which swing around). I have managed to keep up with them for over 6 months, once had to use "Find My Airpods" to locate them in my house, which worked great. For voice calls I just tap to answer, sound is clear as a bell, both directions, and when the call ends, the music fades back in! The charger case is great with the magnets and rapid charging/longevity. Love these things!

    These things are awesome!

    I bought these about 6 months ago and they’re still great! The double tap feature works really well once you get used to where and how hard to tap. You can change the settings on each airpod by going into Bluetooth > Airpods > select what function you would like. I have my right headphone to skip to the next song and the left to go to the previous track. They sound great, volume-wise. You shouldn’t expect a deep bass from these but personally, I’m fine with that. I don’t listen to rap so i don’t care for a deep bass. You can also listen to one airpod at a time. Just make sure you have the airpod you aren’t using inside of the charging case or else your device will try to connect to both at the same time. If you decide you want to listen to both, simply take out the airpod from inside the case and place it in your ear and your phone should connect to it by itself. Oh yeah, connecting the airpods to the device when you’re going to use them is so easy! Just open the case and have it right next to you phone, wait about 3 or 4 seconds and they should connect automatically. The only reason i didn’t give them a 5 star rsting is because i would love to control the volume with the airpods. It’s not a big issue because I usually never have to change the volume, however, when I do want to, I have to do it on my phone(don’t like using Siri). When you’re using both airpods and take one out, the feature to pause the song is really dope, too! Simply put the airpod back in and the music will automatically resume. If you have doubts, like I did, try them out! You can always return them. I liked them way too much to return them, though haha.
