They will work with any bluetooth device but, to use the easy pairing mode you do need an macOS, iOS or watchOS device

They do use Siri to control the devices. And on the requirements it shows iPhone with iOS and up, Watch with watchOS 3 and up and mac computer with Sierra and up. It does not mention windows or any other Bluetooth devices. It could work as just normal Bluetooth speakers but we don't have any information on it.

iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models with iOS 10 or later
Apple Watch models with watchOS 3 or later
Mac models with macOS Sierra or later

AirPods require iOS 10 or MacOS Sierra or newer, and therefore will not work with any PC running windows.

Phil Schiller told us at the keynote, "How do you set them up? You simply put a pair of AirPods in your iPhone and open the case. The user interface pops up and says connect and you tap Connect and that’s it. There’s no step two, there’s nothing else to do. You simply connect. And that one step also connects you with your Apple Watch. So you’re automatically set up for both your iPhone and your Apple Watch, you can start listening and as you have playback on either device, AirPods automatically switch to whatever device you are using. In fact, we also use iCloud to propagate that set-up across your iPads and your Macs as well. So one step set-up across all your devices. It’s that easy."
