    LOVE MY AirPods !!!

    Air Pods are the greatest Apple product I have ever purchased! I love them! I use them for everything all the time. I can pair them with all of my Apple Devices. I switch from my iPhone, iPad, and Macbook Air. I highly suggest ordering a pair as soon as possible !

    Disappointed

    As a long time user of Apple products, I am very disappointed with this product. While sound quality is excellent, I can't use them on my daily runs or visits to the gym, they will fall out of my ears without warning and I have had to go back to using my old headphones when exercising. Apple should at least provide some type of safety harness to prevent their potential loss. I am essentially restricted to using them with Apple TV, not happy!

    The easiest and most clean cut headphones

    After having faffed about with multiple brands and types of bluetooth headphone, I can conclude these are the best I've used.

    There is no pressure on your ear drum which can cause pain or discomfort, typically associated with high quality headphones or noise cancelling technology.

    No more wires, at all. The benefit of this is self explanatory and changes your day to day use hugely.

    Pro level battery life performance in real life use.

    Amazing sound quality, balanced and instantly satisfying.

    Not the highest sound quality, or the most conventional looking headphones, neither the cheapest, or the most colour options. However for all it's simplicity it delivers on the things that matter consistently.

    I would recommend these for almost anyone. Sports guys maybe go jaybird freedom, those who fly alot maybe Bose qc 35 ii's. Everyone else. Jump in.

    Incredible!

    After having the product for 3 months, I can definitely say the money was well spent. I know that some people have trouble with the AirPods falling out of their ear but for me it fits perfectly. The connectivity is fast and they can last a full day with just the charged case! Definitely worth the money.

    Incredible device

    Every now and then I purchase something and very quickly realise that it is a member of that very small 'club' of outstandingly good buys. These AirPods are such.
    I am in my 70's and for years have listened to music 90% on head or ear phones due to suffering from tinnitus and finding phones are better for some strange reason. To this end I have spent a LOT of money on kit. Into £1000s for the best according to audiophile opinion.
    I decided to try AirPods due to the perceived convenience and because I find EarPods with my iPhone 7 very acceptable sound wise but cable annoying.
    These AirPods are a masterpiece technically. They tick every box for convenience due to size, battery life and comfort fit. The quality of the sound is a long way better than I expected. I reach for them most of the time I am listening via my phone and not sitting down to the audiophile kit. I have been an Apple fan for several years and the AirPods continue the tradition of innovation and quality.
    Well done Apple!

    Mixed Experience

    I can't in good conscience give these earphones more than 3 stars. That's not saying they're bad, it's saying they're just OK, not great.

    They hooked up easily to my iPhone 7 and the charging case they came with carries nicely in my pocket and protects and charges the ear pieces at the same time.

    As for the sound quality - it depends. For music they are mediocre and my $30 pair of wired Sennheiser ear buds actually sounds better, particularly in the bass frequencies. However, they work pretty well as a wireless headset for talking on the phone. The sound quality, particularly when using both ear pieces at the same time, is very good. I have checked with several other people I spoken with and they can't tell that I am using a headset. Receiving quality on my end is clear. I find that using both earpieces makes hearing the other party much easier, particularly in noisy environments.

    I do have numerous issues with them that I had hoped would be resolved with firmware updates but haven't so far, however. One is that when they are placed in the ears, they do not always connect to my phone. Sometimes one will connect but the other will not. This is very annoying. I haven't read the other reviews, so I don't know if others are having the same problem. Another issue is sometimes when I have the AirPods in my ears and answer a call by tapping the answer button on the phone, the call will be routed through the phone and not the earphones even though it shows that the AirPods are in use.

    My experience with battery life has been disappointing. When using them for voice calls, I get about 1 hour and 35 minutes on a full charge. Another issue I have with them, and it's only a small inconvenience, is that they can be needlessly difficult to retrieve from their case.I think this is a "form over function" problem and could have been easily avoided with a better design..

    Finally, they fall out of my ears easily if I tilt my head to the side or move in certain other ways. After having this happen numerous times, i have learned to avoid certain movements when they are in my ears and now this only rarely happens.

    I was going to return them but decided to keep them to use as just as a (very expensive) voice call headset because they do work well for voice calls (most of the time), if you don't need more than about an hour and a half before recharging is necessary. By the way, I've owned these for about 4 months.

    Great product

    I got this product months ago and I love it. I have tried so many different wireless devices and they don’t compare to it. The sound is so great, when I have on I’ll forgetting that I have it on.

    One of those Apple products that really holds the "magical" descriptor

    I generally don't like the ear pods that come w/ iPhones. We have a bunch of those little cases around from iPhones over the year. They're not quite comfortable and can even fall off the ear.

    AirPods, however, are different.

    The design actually seems to matter because they stay in. Pretty well, too.

    Really loving them. Pair immediately. iOS 11 lets you modify the "double-tap" commands instead of Siri (click on them in your bluetooth settings). They know when they go in your ear. The mini case is carrying around a multiple charges with you. Control quickly from you Apple Watch with WatchOS 4 (music controls on when something is playing).

    There is a reason people are raving about them. If you're on the fence about getting them, you should probably make the jump and get them.

    Doesn't live up

    I waited for these airpods and bought them in January. They advertised that you could use these for any type of activity unless in water. I am on the 3rd pair since they lose sound quality if you use them regularly when exercising. They were great at changing them out but finally we determined this would not work. I asked for a refund so we could stop the back and forth but Apple doesn't stand behind its product. They now sit in the drawer. What a waste of money.

    Excellent!

    They are very comfortable and easy to listen to.After a while you don't even realize you are wearing them. The freedom of wireless is fantastic! They are able to reproduce a excellent sound stage. You can also hear the texture of the voices on a well recorded piece of music. In my opinion they are definitely worth the money.

    Fit great!

    Just got the pair other day, would recommend.Sound better than corded more bass and are truly easy to use without the regular hazel of other bluetooth headphones. Almost as good as sound as my bose on ear bluetooth.The charger is smart and more hours than you will need.

    AirPods-The Tangle Free Future.

    As the proud owner of PowerBeats 3 I never opted for Apple’s AirPods originally as I felt I didn’t really need them and was also frightened of losing them (pro tip: set up Find my iPhone and you can track the location of your AirPods).

    Having seen a good friend with them recently I must admit I was easily swayed and opted to indulge in a pair and needless to say it’s not a decision I regret.

    Gone is the annoying habit of getting your wires tangled up and wondering why your music has stopped (because you’ve caught yourself too many times and pulled the cord out!)

    Audio quality is great but not stellar (sorry Apple); audiophiles will argue otherwise but I find my PowerBeats 3 have better range and quality over the AirPods.

    The charging case is great; it uses Apple’s Lightning cable which is useful if you have a few of them lying around at home. A few minutes in the case means you can easily listen beyond the quoted playback time of five hours.

    Also like the feature in whereby you can place both AirPods in the carry case. Open the lid and hold it near your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad and it’ll show the battery life remaining in each AirPod plus the battery percentage of the case itself.

    All in all? Definitely the way forward and am glad Apple came out with this.

    Worth every penny!

    One of the most magical products I've ever had the joy of using. Pairing is easier than plugging in a headphone's, and because of this I find myself listening to music more often. Sound quality is pretty good, definitely a step up from the EarPods, and the battery life is pretty great. Would highly recommend this to anyone, even someone who isn't so tech savvy. Wish I purchased them sooner.

    AirPods!

    I purchased these AirPods earlier today, and I must say, I can hear the difference in sound quality with these, and the wired earphones. These AirPods give off great sound and the quality is amazing, also. There’s no static like there’d be with the wired earphones. For the price, these are definitely worth it. I love that they come with a charging base that isn’t sold separately. So, if I’m on the go, I can easily charge my AirPods, without having to worry about getting to a USB port to do so. I think the creators of these AirPods have outdone themselves. These are certainly great if you happen to yank the wired earphones out of your ears, constantly, like myself, or they get caught onto something.

    Never going back to wired!

    I got my AirPods yesterday and am so impressed. The quality of the sound and the charging case are awesome. My right is set for Siri with a double tap, and my left is to pause / play. I noticed that the double tap to pause / play does not work with some of my programs, such as games. While on YouTube, the double tap would pause the video and sound, but double tapping did not start it back up, and I had to push play on the phone. That was OK with me because I was watching a video anyway. As for programs that aren't Apple, bringing up the Control Center or pushing the Home button would instantly pause the sounds, so knowing that, it's no big deal to me, as I'm looking at my screen anyway. I loved going downstairs to the kitchen and still being able to listen to the music playing on my iPhone that was upstairs. I did notice that when playing music on my Watch the controls are front and center automatically, but when I double tapped to pause the music, I waited too long and when I double tapped again, it didn't resume where I left off, but started playing different music from my iPhone. I pushed play on my Watch to resume the song was I was listening to. I generally bought these to play games without disturbing my husband while he watches tv or sleeps, to listen to music, and to make calls from my Watch. When making calls from my Watch, I couldn't hear the person I was talking to very well, but now it's perfect volume and clear, and I love it! They fit great in my ears and do not fall out, even when making a headbanging gesture. They are comfortable, and to me, they just look like earrings. I think they are worth the money and I recommend to anyone hating those wires that constantly get tangled, restrict how far away you can be from your iPhone, and pull the EarPods out of your ears to try these. I also love being able to keep my iPhone 7 charging while I watch videos. A big plus with me!

    Very, very good

    Very impressed with my AirPods. They connect effortlessly to any device you are using, they are comfortable and the sound quality is excellent. Another great feature is the smart case, this ensures you will be never be caught out battery wise as when the AirPods are placed in there they are charging, excellent feature.

    Nice, but less magical and more frustrating.

    I really wanted to love these, and for the most part, I do. Or at least, I like them a lot. They sound pretty good, not much better or worse than the wired earbuds. They are extremely comfortable and don’t fall out or even become loose. However, switching between devices is a pain. Half the time it works as advertised, and feels pretty magical. Half the time, devices simply don’t see or show them at all. Everything is signed into the same iCloud account. Switching from iPhone to iPad is hit or miss. Switching to Mac is even worse. Have to go to Bluetooth settings and manually connect or forget and re-pair them. Typically it’s a lot of putting them in and out of my ear, in and out of the case, and flipping the lid open and closed repeatedly. If I’m lucky that works. If not, it takes 1-3 minutes of jumping through hoops, settings and buttons. Quite frustrating actually, especially considering the price of these things.

    I love Apple. Long time user and fan from before the “Apple is doomed” days. And these AirPods are fantastic - WHEN THEY WORK. But overall I’m left slightly disappointed, if not hopeful, that these are close, but still not great. Maybe an update will help things. Fingers crossed. Still use them every day, despite the regular frustrations they cause.

    Not quite there

    Pros: Easy pairing, comparable sound to wired earbuds, GREAT microphone for phone calls, works great with apple's apps (music, podcasts, phone)

    Cons: Ugly design. Not great compatibility with 3rd party apps. For instance taking the headphone out and having it pause feature works great for apple apps, for third party apps resuming when you put the headphone back in is hit or miss, and double tapping to get siri to play a 3rd party app almost never works (even when its just to resume play after pausing, the phone is unlocked, AND the app is open, the phone still prompts me to open the app to play rather than simply doing it from voice command), this is NOT an issue I have with other bluetooth headsets, just a weird obstacle apple put in place for these ones. Also there is no method of control from just the headsets (where other bluetooth headsets have a physical button to push for play and pause, double push for volume etc, or some combination of taps to accomplish the same), with these ones everything is siri, so no matter how simple a thing you want to do its double tap + voice command, which is overly cumbersome for small things like adjusting the volume or pausing playback, and I have found the double tap to not work maybe 25% of the time, which is often enough to be annoying. Also a feature oddly lacking that is present for other bluetooth devices is having a battery gauge in the upper right hand corner, if I put the batteries in the case, then flip the case open, I get a pop up telling me what is left on both the case and the ear pieces, but otherwise you're stuck guessing your battery level between recharges.

    A lot of the cons can be fixed through software updates, so still hopeful these might improve while I'm owning them. But right now the cons outweigh the pros for me.
