    After two months with AirPods

    I love them, more than I ever expected I would. I've recently purchased AirPods for my wife, as well. they're very comfortable, stay put in my ears regardless of my activities, and work exactly the way I hoped they would. They pair easily and quickly with all my devices. The battery life is as advertised, but what really surprised me is how quickly they recharge. I control volume easily and quickly with my Apple Watch. The only real criticism I have, as many have, is that Siri is slow to respond.

    Best headphones I have ever owned

    I have tried so many different headphones and none of them came even close. I have always loved the sound of the Apple earpods and these sound even better. I have always used earphones cushions with all my in-ear headphones because they never really fit just right. I am using the cushions now with my airPods and they work perfect. They even fit in the charging case with the cushions on. I love these headphones!

    Engineering and industrial design tour de force

    As many others have noted, AirPods feature a delightful, almost magical, pairing experience. From the shiny white color to the intentional "fiddle factor" that Jony Ive & Apple's IDG designed into the case, these ear buds are an example of Apple doing what it does best - iterating on a product to make it far more functional and compelling than anything else on the market.

    With regard to sound quality, I haven't used EarPods in years, as I find them to offer below average sound quality. They would also constantly fall out of my ears while running or working out. If you prefer the fuller sound and deep bass of Powerbeats 3, you may find these to be lacking in the sound department. If you're fine with EarPods, you'll like these, as they feature markedly better sound than EarPods. For example, notice the much larger port on the back of each AirPod vs. the same - much smaller - port of an EarPod. Sound clarity is excellent.

    AirPods have never fallen out of my ears while running or working out. In addition to housing a battery, microphone, and antenna, the stem of each AirPod also aids in establishing/maintaining a proper fit. That said, because of the one size fits all approach, these will not work for everyone.

    Due to their open air design, AirPods work best in quiet environments. If you're often in areas with moderate to loud ambient noise, there are far better options on the market.

    It's amazing that Apple was able to pack so much technology into something that only weighs 4 grams. This shows that they've learned so much from designing and manufacturing Apple Watch. Overall, I highly recommend them and think AirPods are an engineering and industrial design tour de force.

    Please make a smaller size

    I think these are amazing! The design and sound is over the top!!! Unfortunately, they don't fit in my ears. They are too large. Apple, one size does NOT FIT ALL!!! Please, please, please make a smaller version. These will work as long as I'm not doing an activity. However, there is no way I could ever run in them as they would fall out.

    Less than satisfactory

    The AirPods simply do NOT stay in my ears. I have tried several things, including wearing a headband. ANY head movement, and the result is the same. Can not recommend.

    Meets + Exceeds Expectations

    Quite simply, the AirPods perform as Apple claims. If you liked the EarPods, you will love the new AirPods. Also, they pair easily with older Apple devices - iPod Touch 4g, and the double-tap for Siri works with the iPad mini running iOS 9.3.5. For those that bought the AirPods and then complained about the lack of manual volume controls, you should not have bought them in the first place - nowhere does it state it has manual volume controls (so give yourself one star for that one and return them so someone else doesn't have to wait six weeks to get a pair).

    The price seems reasonable for an Apple product; if they came in black, I would have bought black.

    This is the future!

    These are absolutely amazing earbuds. They basically feel like you are wearing nothing. After using these for a week or so I can't imagine going back to wired headphones. Also, I think its worth noting how well they stay in my ears. I am a runner and an avid mountain biker and I use these for both and have never once felt afraid they would fall out. I understand that everyone's ears are different but these work PERFECTLY in mine and I feel like I have pretty average shaped ears. I previously was using the PowerBeats3 and I can say that the AirPods are a much better experience all around and especially for sports (I doubt they are as resistant to water though).

    It does take a little getting used to with not having the remote for controlling music and volume anymore. I have an Apple Watch so that has become my preferred way to replace the remote. Siri also works great for some things but I found that changing the volume and pausing the music this way is not convenient. Also, I switch the double tap command to pause/play rather than siri when I go mountain biking since I am in and out of service and Siri doesnt work without service.

    THIS IS THE FUTURE BELIEVE ME!

    Outstanding and Worth The Wait

    I can see why there is a wait for these. They are simply the most innovative BT listening experience, ever. Apple totally hit a home run with these. For one thing, they really do pair as easily as was stated. Open case, touch one button that pops up on an iPhone and suddenly they are available on my iPhone, iPad and two Macs. Done! Just like that. Sound quality is outstanding. I mean, it's not three pound, over-the-ear headphones sound, but for in-ear pods, it's really good. Making calls is easy and again, sound quality is outstanding. Battery life is excellent and they do charge quickly in the case. What's more, there is very little "vampire drain". I left these in the case for four days, unplugged and both the case and AirPods still showed 100% battery. "Home run" may not be accurate. This is more like a World Series comparison. I'm really impressed.

    Amazing headphones a must have!!!!!!!

    Ordered these back in December and waited for them to arrive. Finally received them February 6th. The sound and feel of them out the box is awesome. They pair right away out of the box to the iPhone, they even charge in the case. The only con was a weird sensation putting them first in. Kinda feel like a battery. But after awhile didn't notice anything. Worked great with iTunes and answering calls was easy. You can just tap on them twice to raise Siri. I am very pleased. well done Apple. I would recommend to all iPhone 7 / 7 Plus/ users. This is a must have for your phone.

    Everything you'd expect; awesome

    Sound quality is great, a little better than standard EarPods, better bass and dynamic range. Battery lasts forever, I've got around 4 days life out of them with the charging case, on average. Bluetooth connection seems better than standard also, has longer range and has only cut out a couple times so far. I love how it is instantly paired to all your iCloud devices so no tedious Bluetooth setup necessary, just open the case and they're connected. I also enjoy using them with just one ear, which can be nice for phone calls or if you want to still be aware of your surroundings. They fit great on me personally and I've taken them on multiple runs and exercise without them ever falling out, since they are not being pulled on by a cord. Some ear shapes may not work with them however, if your ears don't fit regular EarPods they will be the same with these. I'd recommend some earhoox to help them stay in better for those who need them. Only complaints I have is probably the price but at the same time they are competitive with other leading wireless headphones. Best wireless earbuds out there!!

    Pretty Good

    They do everything they are supposed to do music wise. With that said if you are an active person, running, training, and lifting these will fall out for sure. They do not hold up to the athletic lifestyle.

    Great Product! I highly recommend!

    I have to admit I had very low expectations for the AirPods. I never used the Apple earbuds because I thought they were terrible and had been using Shure and Bose headphones for the last 5 years. I was honestly immediately blown away by the AirPods. First, the sound was much better than I could have ever anticipated. Second, the ease of use and automatic pairing was amazing. Finally, I have no issues whatsoever keeping the Airpods in my ear and I have used them during all of my workouts.

    The only reason I did not give the AirPods a five star rating is because the sound still could be better (after all these are earphones for playing music) and there are no volume controls or ability to skip tracks without using Siri. Apple needs to add a firmware update so you can adjust the sound and be able to skip tracks by touching the AirPods.

    Almost Perfect...

    Work great on my iOS devices and iMac, but not so on the mid-2015 MacBook Pro with Sierra. I get constant drop outs, about every 45 seconds, even with latest updates on the MacBook and the latest firmware on the AirPods. Hopefully this will be resolved in an update soon. I haven't found any solutions online. Otherwise, they have met my expectations. Comfortable, easy switching from one device to another, charge lasts a decent amount of time, and the sound is not bad.

    Great AirPods ever!!!

    I love this I just got them Yesterday. The sound is amazing! The bass is great! I love how I can connect to my laptop and my AppleWatch. Mostly what I love about these, when I take one pods off it pause my music and movie. Great job Apple! The price is great for these!

    Finally free of wires

    They are fantastic, sound quality, comfort ( i have small ears) and quality. I couldn't be happier with these, they don't fall out of your ears, they sound excellent, they connect effortlessly, the case is excellent pocket size. No issues at all.

    Set your ears free!

    I just got these AirPods this morning and am blown away by them already. The charge case with its tactile rounded edges and corners is a great place to keep them safe in a pocket or purse. Flip the lid and there they are nestling inside, ready for play and your iPhone is already paired. They also paired with my my iPad Air effortlessly and near intantaneously. No fiddling about in settings or entering code numbers is required.

    They fit my ears really well and show no signs of falling out though at my age I walk and do not jog. Given their price it would be fair to say I won't be taking these out on the ocean in my sea kayak though. The sound quality is superb especially considering that they are connected by bluetooth. Previous bluetooth earphones I have used have been a real faff to connect, the sound quality was tinny and they suffered frequent audio drop outs. Unlike some earphones, these do not seal your ear canal from the outside so if you are in a noisy environment, such as a busy road, they do let a fair bit of outside sound in. So if that is where you listen to music, you might be better with earphones which have soft rubber seals to keep road noise out.

    Not having to spend time untangling wires really sets you free and I certainly don't miss an earphone being tugged out by the wire that gets caught on a jacket when you take it off or turn your head etc. When I meet someone, I particularly love this feature: removing one AirPod causes the music to pause and you can have a chat. Then when you put it back in, the music starts again. If you chat too long the music stays paused but rather than getting the phone out of an inside pocket, you can just double tap the earphone to activate Siri and say "play". Unfortunately you need to be in WiFi range or have a decent phone signal for Siri to work. I have never used Siri on my iPhone, iPad or MacBook Pro, so for me the AirPods have proved to be the killer application to get me started using Siri.

    Making or receiving phone calls is also a breeze, double tap to start Siri and say "phone home" and that's it. The only downside (until they catch on) is that having two bits of white pasta sticking out your ears makes you look like a bit of an extra terrestrial. But at least they are not spaghetti like wires!

    It's good to see some innovation that has been really well implemented. They may be pricey enough to make your eyes water but at least your ears will be happy and free.
