    Not as seamless as they claim

    I've had the AirPods for over a year now and while they have held up ok, there are a couple of recurring issues they need to address. First and foremost, if you have multiple devices like the apple watch and iphone, the AirPods will have issues connecting with the watch if you do not deactivate bluetooth on your phone. I cannot tell you how many times this has happened to me at the gym only to spend 10 minutes trying to get the AirPods to connect to the watch...very frustrating. The other issue is that the microphone has degraded to the point that I can no longer take a phone call using the AirPods. It used to be extremely sensitive and have great call quality so that the person with whom I was speaking could easily hear me; however, all of that has changed one year in. Now, they are practically useless and I have to either revert back to wired airbuds or just talk into the phone. For a price point this high, I would expect a lot more from this product and Apple. The sound is still good when it connects but not sure I would recommend this product until they fix the connection issue and degraded microphone performance.

    Best wireless headphones

    I love how compact and small they are. This is the first truly wireless headphones I’ve ever used and I’m impressed.
    I highly recommend it.
    I hope there will be software update to control the volume with gestures.

    Part of the family

    I use these for everything. Game changer! I use these everyday. Absolutely indispensable for work and life now. I also dropped them a few times and have held up really well.

    Poor pairing. Good sound quality.

    I’m not impressed by the AirPods. They do not work as advertised. Not easy to pair. It does pair with your device but not automatically most of the time. You have to pair it manually. When a call comes in , it takes it own sweet time to pair and answer. The sound quality is really good though.

    Apple failure

    I think Apple should call the AirPods a failure. I am on my 3rd pair and after 5 months the 3rd pair will not hold a charge on the right side. This has been a continuing problem with each pair I have received. I’m sick of spending hours of my time at the Apple store with their so called Genius Bar trying to figure it out. These are totally not worth the high cost!!!

    The Best

    I’ve owned just about every type of Bluetooth headphones ever made. These Apple AirPods are by far the best. They are thoughtfully and uniquely engineered and the connectivity is flawlessly integrated into the iPhone OS. They have a deep rich sound and fit into my ears perfectly. No problem running or working out like I thought might be the case.

    absolutely love em

    I didn't expect them to be so fantastic. they don't quite fit snugly enough in my ears but it bought the EarBuddyz hooks that help them fit snugly in your ear and now I never about them falling out. they are so light that you just forget that you are wearing them!! and it's eerie at first how free you are to just walk around your apartment or office with these on but once you get used to it it's fantastic!

    the only reason bluetooth is ok in my book.

    Aside from the next day free shipping (2 day, arrived early)... and being impressed by the instant initial iPhone pairing, the auto on and off, and auto play when inserted into ears and the auto pause when you remove one to hear what someone is saying to you has just become the reason I cant talk down on Bluetooth. After owning WiFi speakers for the last few years (Sonos) the lack of Wifi instead of Bluetooth in a headphone/headset has made zero sense to me untill this moment. Apple totally impressed me with these features. I did not do much research on the AirPods, apple did an amazing Job on these. The sound is very impressive, currently playing the volume at around 55% and most sounds around me are drowned out, but can still hear if someone is trying to get my attention... as far as noise cancellation goes i prefer an over ear headphone, the air pods fit perfectly into my ears. Gym, Shopping, School work & most other daily activities should be just fine with these. Couldn't be happier!

    Flakey at best

    I have gone through two pairs of these also resetting my phone software as new trying to get these things to work properly. I am still having the same problem and the more I use them the more problems I eventually have. I’ve had these things about three months and the problems I’m having are I am unable to activate Siri with the taps most of the time and when I answer with the headphones my phone automatically defaults to answer with the phones ear speaker so after answer I have to go in and tell it to push the sound to the AirPods. It seems like a big hassle. Now as I google it some have the same problems. Although I don’t like beats they are working much better.

    Unreliable

    When they work they're great, but that's only about 80% of the time. For business I need to use an old earbud headset so I know they will always work.

    Great Product but battery life?

    I have had my AirPods since February and although they are a great product and easy to use, i only get 50 minutes battery life out of them rather than the 5 hours quoted. Whats my warranty options?

    Mixed

    Pros:
    Easy bluetooth sync
    Great battery life
    Great storage/charge case

    Cons:
    Average audio quality
    Poor Fit
    Won't stay in while jogging... at all.
    Oddball looks

    YMMV - It's a gamble buying these, because I'm sure if they fit you then you will be happy. But they are useless if they don't stay in your ears.

    Didn't live up to my expectations

    I have to say that the sound quality is great BUT I particularly have 2 issues with them. First, the shape it's very uncomfortable. I can't use them for more than 10 min without hurting my ears. I have very small ear holes and these are definitely not a fit for me. Second and more important, the battery dies pretty fast when you are not using them even inside the case.

    So Amazing You Forget They're Even In Your Ears

    Okay, so I bought my AirPods late September (2017) and I LOVE THEM. After the first day of using them, I was in love and I knew that I wouldn't be able to live without them. I am a high school student, so yes walking in the halls I did get a few students looking at me weirdly, but it is worth it. I also now have about 15-20 of my friends awaiting to buy a pair, they love them after trying mine. The immense subversiveness of the experience is so amazing it is hard to describe. After having them in for 15 minutes, you forget that they're in your ears at all. All you hear is music. No wires dangling, pulling on the units themselves. **THEY FIT BETTER THEN EARPODS DO** The sound quality is amazing, the pairing is instant, the active adaptive noise cancellation is great, the automatic play/pause is flawless, and the music isn't music anymore. it is a FLAWLESS MUSICAL EXPERIENCE. I love that you can't feel them in your ears, making the whole experience feel that much more premium. I will never go back to traditional wired earphones. I now call my AirPods my "AirFloats", and I call wired earphones "Peasant earphones" because they honestly feel/sound horrible compared to AirPods. I recommend AirPods to anyone who is an avid Apple fan, such as myself, and anyone who has ears that fit or mostly fit Apple Earpods, because these fit better.

    Unexpected Delight

    Having had beats n using the lightning cable that comes boxed with the iPhone 7 I had no real need for a wireless pair of headphones.
    If did pester me that an adapter was needed to listen to music whilst charging and at some stage I was knew I was going to have to make the plunge.

    I was reluctant to spend €170 on these but the Mrs bought them for me on my employee discount for my bday and to be honest they have turned out to be one of my favourite presents in recent years. I’m notoriously difficult to buy presents for but these ended up being a dream.
    I was reluctant at first to get get them due to the inability to skip tracks but once that software update was implemented I was game.
    Setting the left as Pause/Start and the right as Skip Track has just been a techies wet dream.
    The sound quality along with the battery duration makes them really stand out.
    Honestly they’re worth the cost even though expensive and I don’t say that lightly.
    You can only appreciate these when testing them out and being a pure nerd these are worth every penny.
    Excellent gift for any music lover!!

    Unexpected bonus!

    I got these for wearing when I was out walking. There is an unexpectedly great design feature for keeping your child from running away..... You wear one pod and give your music loving child another - if they move too far away the music cuts out. Great product and brilliant sound quality. I’ve had mine nearly a year and they’re still fabulous.

    Just amazing! Never going back to wires!

    I’ve been anticipating about whether or not I should get the AirPods. I am so glad that I did! No more wires and plus Ithey are very aesthetically pleasing, especially the case! I am loving the overall experience. One downside is that you cannot change the volume unless you do it manually by phone or Siri. I think it would be nice to change volumes with three taps (higher volume: tap 3x on right; lower volume: tap 3x on left) or by sliding a finger vertically on one earphone or something! Otherwise, I’m super happy with my purchase!
