    AAAwesome quality - totally reached my expectations

    Ok, first things first. I'm not a pro when it comes about ear buds, heck, I don't think I might be a pro about anything but I do have my own expectations about things I purchase and Apple AirPods didn't let me down. I specifically bought them for my Saturday runs. I'm synching a preferred playlist on my Apple Watch Series 2, grab those AirPods and I'm good to go. I'm a pretty stubborn fella and since it's set in my mind to do my workout on Saturdays regardless of the weather, even though last Saturday 04/29 was some horrible weather in Chicago, cold, windy ( -Doh!!! ) and aggressive rain, being all soaked up for a full 1hr + until I finished my regular 10k apparently was no problem at all for my shinny new AirPods outstanding those conditions and on the contrary, they worked perfectly as leakproof lids for my ears lol ( kept all the rain and wind out of my ears without getting harmed in the process or the sound being affected in any way, that's actually pretty impressive considering I took a risk there, not being advertised by Apple as waterproof ) so they're definitely water & sweat resistant at least for that 1hr + I used them for my run ( of course, now I'm gonna say: -Don't do this at home! ;)p ). What else.., hmm.., ohh, I'm happy with how good the sound is as well - if you like your ear buds to be really loud than they're not for you, as they're just loud enough for the majority of the people, I would say, and I totally fit in that category ( I also think they might not be extremely loud in order for the quality of the sound to be the same good regardless of the volume you'll use - they'll have no distortions wether you'll use them at min or max volume. All in all, they're totally worthy of the pennies you'll eventually invest in them as I already did so and don't forget they're Apple so if you'll not want to upgrade to a newer model in the near future that's not gonna be a problem, I'm absolutely positive they'll serve you well for years to come. Ohh, I forgot to mention about the battery life, so I ran with them 1hr plus in chilly, windy + aggressive rainy-ish conditions, I started my run with the battery for both of them being at 100% and when I got back home both of them were at 68% ( the music was listened at max volume the whole time ) and so I would say they're definitely and easily meeting the advertised listening amount of hours in normal weather conditions and ( or ) use if not even more. Alrighty then, that's it, I'm outta here, see ya next Saturday my dear AirPods. Happy AirPods listening time to all of you Apple fans out there.

    I ordered my AirPods five weeks ago and picked them up at my local Apple Store this morning. I've used them all day today. I am blown away at how impressive these little jewels are. The sound quality is great, especially when on calls. I can hear the other line loud and clear and they say they can hear me clearly as well. Connecting and going back and forth from my iPhone 6 to my iPad Mini 4 is seamless. I love how the battery charge status shows up automatically on my notification screen. Not just for the charging case, but also for each AirPod! They charge super fast and the charge lasts plenty long enough. The charging case is pretty much magical, I've never seen anything as efficiently designed. I have slightly larger ears than the average person, yet these stay perfectly in place and don't move, even when I'm laying back in a recliner. Sooo comfortable! Not having to deal with any cords at all is a blessing. When I'm listening to music and someone comes up to me to talk, all I have to do is take one AirPod out and the music stops, then starts up automatically when I pop it back in my ear. If you're on the fence about buying these, in my opinion they are worth every penny.

    Looks terrible, great functionality and sound

    I love the functionality but unfortunately I’m taking mine back because they just look too stupid. Every time I catch a glimpse in a passing window I look like someone’s Aunt Bea with clip-on earrings and I just cringe.

    My other frustration after a couple weeks is having to choose between Siri OR stop/play functionality on the double-tap. You have to be able to discreetly touch your ear to stop your music — otherwise every time you walk up to a cashier or whatever you’re the dork who’s tapping your ear and saying “Siri stop” – it’s beyond lame. But if you only have stop/play activated, you can no longer activate Siri from the AirPods, and having Siri in your ear is pretty cool.

    The obvious and intuitive solution is for Apple to just let us customize single, double, and triple-tap functionality ourselves. For me, my choice would be single-tap to stop/play, double for next, and triple to activate Siri.

    The sound for me is pretty much exactly the same as the EarPods — obviously there can’t be a lot of bass, but it’s fine for walking, working out, etc.

    The other thing to know is that gravity plays a huge part in the AirPods ability to stay in your ear, because they don’t have the downward pressure of the wires. That also means that you can’t wear them lying down, because they’ll fall out of your ears — frustrating when I’m watching TV, doing a meditation app, etc.

    I have Airbnb guests so I try to stay quiet around the house, and the ability to easily switch between my Apple TV, iMac, iPad in total silence is really cool. When I first opened the AirPods and my iPhone woke up and showed them as connected I practically wept.

    But it’s already a struggle for me not to look like an idiot, and I just can’t justify paying money to make me look like more of one.

    Great product, Terrible when lost.

    Let me start off by saying that I love AirPods, they are not only good headphones but they pack a lot of incredible technology inside such a small devices, such as they auto pause feature when pulling the buds from your ears. Unfortunately with such small devices, they can be lost much easier than something such as EarPods. During a School trip I took, I discovered I lost one of my pods (Something I never thought would happen). I immediately took out my iPhone and activated Find my AirPods, but apparently it was too late. I don't even see the point of such a feature if it won't work correctly. The AirPod wasn't missing for more than 10 minutes, and I still couldn't find using the feature. In conclusion these are very easy to lose, don't count on the Find my AirPods feature at all. Besides that they are a great product.

    totally LOVE THEM!

    Im always on the go and using my phone constantly. I use either one or both AirPods to make phone calls and listen to music at anytime. I love the tap function to answer/end a phone call. They recharge in minutes, Super easy pairing and i don't know about the size but in my case, they fit very well and i can just say that I LOVE THEM!!

    Better than $400 Bose!

    The new AirPods have better sound than my $400 Bose headphones! I can't believe these really sound this good. They are incredibly light and are VERY secure in my ears. Apple has yet again nailed their design! Pairing was incredibly easy and fast; however, they could be a little better when switching between devices, but it is no big deal, just kind of slow. These AirPods are AMAZING and I fully recommend them to anyone looking to be TRULY free from wires! Another bonus is the price, while $160 isn't cheap, comparable Bose or other high end ear buds are 3X that price. I fully recommend these!!

    I really wanted to like them, but I couldn't

    I was so excited to order these AirPods and the 6 week wait was so long! When they arrived I was so excited to wear them every single day. I put them in and turned on the music and was in love. But after about an hour, my ears were in so much pain. No matter which way I turned them or how lightly I put them in my ear, they were so uncomfortable. I took them out, waited a while, and would try again later. But they never worked out. Trust me, I wanted to love them. I still love the idea, but if you have small ear canals like me (where silicone in-ear are painful), trust me, wait till something better comes out.

    I will say that the sound was okay, nothing to talk about all day but not terrible. The wireless part worked flawlessly! Again, I really wanted these to work out! If the standard wired headphones are comfortable, you'll be good. If they hurt your ears, I promise these will not be any better.

    Blown Away

    Usually don't do reviews but was blown away by these AirPods. Have been using them for three months now and they have only fallen out when i was real sweaty. I love the sound quality and the ease of use. I have the Bose Quiet comfort 35 that I use when my mower and the powerbeats 2 when I work out but I love these.

    Airpods are just awesome..!!
    Stays in the ears very well. I can go on run and even jump like crazy and they don't fall. Sound is great. Pairing is painless.
    The battery charging is amazingly fast. Ear piece battery lasts for 5 hours and the case charge them fully in about 20 mins.
    Just go for it..!!

    Best new Tech since iPhone

    Works well with iPhone but not with MacBook

    I bought these hoping to use them with my MacBook and my iPhone. While they work great with my iPhone they will not stay connected to my MacBook. I have used other bluetooth headsets including Plantronics and B&O without a problem. But the Airbuds connect and disconnect continuously.

    If your only application is with an iPhone I would recommend these, if you are looking to use them with a MacBook or any other device, I would recommend you look elsewhere.

    Was nervous at first

    Bought a pair, and couldn't believe it. As my equally incredulous neighbor said, "They just work." Sound is great, taking out one to pause is genius and incredibly handy. Nervous about falling out and only happened once when pulling raincoat off over my head. Use on my walking commute and love them. Bought a set for the entire company, and everyone loves them.

    AIr Pods - Great for Gym

    Was skeptical that would stay in my ears, but once that was confirmed, simply love the product.

    I purchased these mainly for the gym. Have gone through several workouts and the lack of any wires feels great. Sound quality is solid and pairing to my iphone is seamless.

    Only negative is would love the ability to change volume levels or skip a bad song by tapping the pods, and not having to actually speak to siri. Asking siri to raise or lower volume is less convenient than the cord.

    Apple Good

    Aside from the air pods being on back order ( i waited about 5 weeks for mine). They are worth the wait. I am pleasantly suprised with how easy they are to sync to your devices. My phone, Ipad, and watch. Battery life is pretty decent for wireless headphones. On average i spend about 2.5 hrs throughout the day either listening to a podcast or watching something on netflix.The charging case is really neat and comes in handy when your battery gets low. Very easy to check battery status from phone or ipad also. The sound quality is a little disappointing however when it comes to music. Don't get me wrong it sounds great, but on some other middle tier wireless devices and headphones you definitely get more of a bang in the sound. I would definitely recommend this product if you are looking to really expand your apple portfolio.

    I have read the one star reviews before making this review

    I love the sound quality! I have had about 8 different Bluetooth headsets Air Pods sound better than any of them.
    Mine have worked great from day one. I don't doubt that sometimes someone gets a dud but that doesn't appear to be the norm for these. I even left mine in my pocket and accidently washed them in the washing machine (low water level front loading machine) the pods were fine the charging case lost its charge and didn't want to charge back up. I put it in rice for 5 days I filled the pod cavities up with rice also it has been fine ever since. Mine stay in my ears just fine, I couldn't be happier. I suppose some people have different shaped ears since some have reported having trouble keeping them in. The thing I absolutely love the most is if you have the pair in and someone wants to talk to you, you can simply take one pod out and your music pauses. You put the pod back in and the music starts right back where you left off! Absolutely love them!!!!
