    Very convenient and extremely reliable!

    I've used many bluetooth audio devices over the years, in ear, over the ear, different brands, etc. and ended up loosing faith in everything audio bluetooth especially for making reliable phone calls. The AirPods certainly changed my perception. These are the first bluetooth headsets that actually work and that you can rely on to get through your day without any issues taking phone calls, listening to music, etc.

    They fit great, are very comfortable, sound good and handle all your calls without any issues (no one on the other end of the call notices I am using a headset!).

    The bottom line, the AirPods are very convenient and extremely eliable... and this is all I want from a bluetooth headset!

    Best non noise cancelling headphones I have ever heard

    To give you some context - I currently use Bose QC35 and QC30 wireless headphones for travel. I bought these for the gym and for doing video interviews and phone calls and could not be happier. The sound quality is better than Bose or any other brand I have heard and they never fall out at the gym or when running. They are also incredibly compact so I just leave them in my suit pocket most of the time. I think they are worth every cent and every day waiting (still "ships in 6 weeks" at the time of writing this review). I have been using them for 7 weeks.

    Avoid AirPods. Charging and Connectivity issues.

    The downside of AirPods that resulted in my poor rating is they keep connecting to my iPhone when not in the charging case and when I am not paying attention to them and when the time comes to use them all of a sudden they are out of charge forcing me to recharge them over and over again. When I called the Apple customer service line 1800 the representatives aren't educated enough on the product to assist customers like myself. When I reported this issue to Apple one person told me to disconnect my bluetooth to avoid this problem when they are not in use. I told her that I can't disconnect bluetooth as I am using an Apple watch and it would defeat the purpose and functionality of it. Another customer service agent told me that he has checked with the Apple engineers and they told him best way to avoid this problem is to keep the AirPods in the charging case when not in use. My response was if I keep them in them in the charging case this drains the battery life out them which again defeats the purpose of the case cause I wouldn't have enough juice to charge my Airpods multiple times as advertized by Apple. Nobody at Apple knows what they are talking about or have a solution for my problem.
    The second issue I have been facing with AirPods when I am successful in not having them connect to my iPhone 7 Plus when not in use is that they significantly lose battery charge. Is this normal for a product that is supposedly turned off?

    Definitely not happy with this purchase

    Simple. User Focused. Apple

    I am not an audio guy. I like my music, I listen to podcasts, and I reviewing some audio lectures.... That being said, I use these constantly every day. My prior earpods worked for a fixed location but I am always moving around. I now not only listen more but I also am going through the shopping list while talking to my wife (over 1 airpod) at the grocery store. In a press of a button (on the airpods case) I pair up a new device and every time afterwards, I just click connect on that other device and airpods happily switch over for me. I cannot say that for other Bluetooth devices (non-apple). Expensive? yes. Useful and valuable? most definitely yes. Would recommend? yes. Any complaints? none at all.

    Notes for others: physically 'feels' like an earpod.... check an earpod and make sure you are comfortable with it's feel.

    A Little Hint of that Apple magic.

    Some indepth thought went into how the user would interact with these devices in their environment. I have a number of brands of wireless earbuds, and each have advantages, and disadvantages. After using the EarPods for three weeks I realized Apple has struck a nice balance between style, quality, utility, and practicality. I use the EarPods at work, where others use their wireless devices, yet there is no interference. I can leave my iPhone 7 Plus with the EarPods holder at my desk, and walk to the printer, some fifty feet away and experience no loss of signal, or audio quality. It was nice to see some of the old Apple in these EarPods.:)

    Say goodbye to your BATTERY LIFE iPhone 7 Plus

    I have only had these for three days, but here' my initial take on them. Love the style, fit and comfort. On a windy day, people still cannot hear me talking, so the background dampening is not that great. It would appear that I may need to get a Mophie, because since purchasing the Pods, my phone has been going through battery quickly and heating up, like it would if there is a program running continuously. I have not added any apps, so I know it must be the Pods. When they are in the case, the phone is fine, but when they are in my ears (ear insertion sensing is enabled), my iPhone 7 Plus will go through the battery in a matter of three hours, even if I am not talking on it. It also doesn't seem to have any method of hanging up a call, without touching the phone itself. As for the battery life with the Pods, Apple is correct, they will only last two hours when talking (mine was 110 minutes). I have not yet tested the life listening to music. So it looks like I may need to keep my wired headset on me as a back up when I put the pods back in the case for recharging...which defeats traveling light. You cannot charge the case any faster with plugging it in using either of the Apple plugs...and at the moment, mine is stuck on 74% and no movement no matter what. Looks like I see an Apple Store visit in my future. Listening to music is okay, but clearly Apple has not used any of the Beats technology in these, because the base tone is weak. I am a huge Apple user, but this product has been disappointing.

    I Love My AirPods

    Used for month with iPhone 7 Plus:

    PROS:

    A. BRILLIANT sound whether on phone calls or listening to iTunes. Callers have never sounded so clearly, even if they're using a speaker phone.

    B. Clever case & AirPod recharging [excellent charge status indicators on iPhone].

    C. Strong Bluetooth connectivity in my house even if I've forgotten that my iPhone is in a different room.

    D. Sturdy so far; I’ve dropped a single AirPod twice now, still working fine (see CONS item B. below).

    E. Charging case & pods beautifully designed.

    F. SO EASY to add them AFTER you’re on a call. You open the case, insert one or both AirPods, the call continues without a glitch or sound.

    G. “Double-Tap” is a cinch for me. I only use it to initiate a call, or to shuffle or adjust iTunes music volume. If I’m on a call and want to adjust volume, it’s just easier to use the iPhone volume buttons.

    CONS:

    A. Long Phone Calls -- AirPod batteries will last me maybe for a 2-hour phone call. The good news though is that they recharge very quickly from the case. I haven't tried using just one AirPod to see if it will extend phone call time, but might do that at some point.

    B. Staying in ears -- NO earbuds of ANY kind have EVER been able to stay in my ears - ear shape or oily skin. AirPods are so lightweight that if just wearing them on standby and not on a phone call, may not even notice if one falls out. I'm not going to wear them outside unless absolutely necessary (don't need them in the car since phone already syncs with car's mic & speakers etc).

    CONCLUSION: 5 stars despite the iffy retention in my admittedly odd ears.

    Mine didn't work, or charge correctly

    I really liked them, when they worked. Unfortunately mine cut out quite often and had issues with them staying at similar battery strength. They would drain disproportionately during use, and then one would charge and the other would not. Then one, only the right one, started cutting out frequently during use. I am guessing that I got a lemon. Unfortunately when I went into the store to exchange them, they don't have any for exchanges. So, my only real option was to return them and now if I want to try them again, I have to order and wait at least 6 more weeks to receive the new pair. Unfortunate, and I have not ordered another pair because I don't really want to spend so much on headphones, wait so long, only to go through all of this again.

    Absolutely the best in terms of convenience!

    These are exactly what I have always really wanted. I've had lots of Bluetooth wireless headphones for several years and they have gradually gotten better. That said, these have better range than the others, and I've had very good ones. Really easy connect and solid connection (no sputter or drops). I first thought that answering calls would be difficult, but I'm all Apple, so I can simply answer my iPhone on my watch! Could not be easier as it automatically connects through the AirPods. Talking on the watch, wasn't great, but with the AirPods it's seamless. The sound, is surprisingly good.

    Awesome!

    I own three of these, and my kids each have one. They are fantastic, they sound great, and will stay in your ear through the most strenuous workout or run. Great for conference calls, walking around and of course listening to music.

    Sports and airpods

    I have the apple watch sport nikki as I do a lot of running. The airpods are great with apple phone but once I'm away from wifi or just using my watch I am unable to use siri to forward or replay music. Also the apple fitness doesn't communicate so when running I no longer hear distance calls or timer beeps. For the price there are a lot of issues which need sorted before there as good as claimed. My Jabra headphones are far cheaper and everything works.

    Airpod 100% improvement with foam covers.

    Lovely design but sound quality not great! However, put some foam covers on and these earphones are transformed into a comfortable, snug-fitting and GREAT sounding earphone. Come on Apple include foam covers if you want EVERYONE to enjoy these earphones to their full potential. You will need to burn/cut holes in the foam tips to reveal the sensors but that's pretty easy. They also fit in the case with the foam tips - not the rubber ones. Trust me, just try them with foam covers - they then sound AWESOME!!

    Best $160 spent

    When the AirPods were announced with the iPhone, I knew i had to grab a pair. Even though I took longer than i thought, they definitely are worth it. Sound quality is amazing, battery life is great, they stay in my ears even if I'm working out or doing a ton of movement, and peoples reaction to them is hilarious! Paring is simple and easy. Only thing i will I don't like is the availability of them. I want to get my mother a set and no apple with have them until mid April. Mad props to you apple, i love my AirPods and definitely going to get more pairs

    Connectivity is a problem

    I've had these for 2 months and I mostly love them; the fit and the sound are just fine for my purposes.

    The problem I'm having now is that I just started walking with them, and they disconnect from the phone constantly. I've tried it with a podcast app and the built-in Music app, I've turned off double-tap detection, I've unpaired-reboot-repaired them, nothing fixes the problem. They'll just stop playing. When I take my phone out of my pocket and hit play, sometimes it works for a few minutes, sometimes only for 5 seconds, but it will stop playing again. But they work for hours when the sound source is not moving.

    Three stars because when they work they're magic, but having to carry a pair of wired headphones for exercise means this 1st-gen product wasn't quite ready.

    Great Product

    The AirPods are really great. I love how the AirPods are truly wireless not having any cable. They have much better sound quality than the regular EarPods. They never fall off my ears, and are very light. These are now my favorite headphones. Thanks Apple!

    Absolutely Love These

    Ignore the bad reviews about the new AirPods. These AirPods are fantastic and the music produced through these AirPods are really crisp HD sound with very nice bass depending on song. Pairs and works seamless with macOS Sierra and iOS 10. Including a nice sound when the AirPods are connected alerting you they are ready to use. Fantastic Apple product for 2017.

    Really impressed

    these are awesome! I am very impressed with the fitting, I was worried that it would fall off my ears as i walked and
    crack and break them but nope never fell once.

    Very nice

    I really like these things, the carging case is about the size of a dental floss container which makes them highly portable, they can go right in your pocket instead of needing to go into a bag like most wireless headphones I've seen.

    They could make a slight improvement on the next version by making it slightly easier to extract the pods from the case. It's not too hard, but it could be easier by making it so there is either just a little more to grab on to, or make the case patially eject the ear pod.

    But otherwise these are perfect.
