    I love these! They have good quality but, they hurt my ears and I have to take them out every so often. Other then that they are amazing!

    Good Sound, but Limited Functions

    • Written by Wayne Y from Sunnyvale

    I do like my AirPods a lot, as far as the sound quality and convenience. They're better than my Plantronics BackBeats that I use for exercise, and there's a good richness to the sound that you don't get from the free headphones that come with an iPhone. My AirPods pair quickly with my iPhone as soon as I put them in my ears, and I haven't had any connection issues. The range is pretty good, too; better than my BackBeats. That said, the AirPods are very limited in design and function. You can set the left earpiece to either play/stop or skip forward with a double tap. And that's about it. There's no volume up/down or skip back. I also don't like how slippery smooth the AirPods are. They can easily slip out of your fingers if you're not careful. I wonder if Apple made them that way so people lose them more easily... Overall I enjoy my AirPods and use them regularly. They should be priced more around $100, but with Apple products you pay a premium.

    Very good, but...

    • Written by Bruce F from MINNEAPOLIS

    Disclaimer: I am an Apple addict, and fussy about my music (classical and rock). I got these to go along with my Pioneer Rays (High end and expensive) earphones. The wires bothered me quite a bit.These sound very good, but perhaps slightly below the Rayz, (I’m still getting used to them). Some reviewers say they stay in your ears very well, even with sweating or exercising. My left one falls out very easily. Maybe it’s just something about that ear, but I worry about it hitting the floor and breaking (someone said the replacements are way too expensive). I am considering returning them, but I like the sound, and the wireless feature is really nice. As others have commented, Apple doesn’t give their stuff away, do they?

    Perfect

    • Written by Roohan A from Srinagar

    Extremely Useful & It’s design is amazing.

    But there is close to 1% difference between the 1st Gen Airpods & the 2nd Gen Airpods. (standard version)

    Pretty good.

    • Written by Lewis D from Orangeville

    Worth the money only if you are willing to spend a fair amount. When they first came out i thought they were trash and an absolute rip off, but a couple of my mates got them and they often give me an airpod, and i thought, wow, these things are pretty good! And i went from there liking them more and more each time i use them and no, they dont fall out (if you put them in right). They to me personnaly are also are a pretty good thing too flex with!��������Little bit on the pricey side though. P.S. the price makes your flex better! ��

    they're good but can be much better!

    • Written by GURSAGAR S from Dix Hills

    I want to start by saying, you shouldn't call the airpods garbage just because they malfunction because you took poor care of them or because you lost them due to your own neglect and inattention. these ear phones are actually really nice and stylish. I used to be super anti-airpods when they came out but I decided to try them for studying because I was tired of having to move the wire constantly from under my books and I'm glad i gave them a chance. granted apple doesn't put the best of the best tech in their products but anything they make is sort of a super hit with the public and they try to upgrade and give us a tiny bit more with each model (sort of teasing us with its capabilities)

    review of the airpods themselves:
    Pros:
    - stylish and lightweight (you can literally forget you're wearing them)
    - good battery life with quick recharging and a stylish charging case,
    - quick bluetooth connectivity (3-5 seconds tops to connect to the macbook),
    - output volume at the highest setting is LOUD (obviously right! i mean to say you can turn up the volume to drown out environment noises) or you can keep them at a decent volume and be able to hear your music/shows/videos while still have an "open ear" to your surroundings,
    - super portable! come-on, can you literally take them ANYWHERE in your pocket/backpack/luggage without having to deal with tangled wires or the stress and hassle of folding elegantly to making sure the wire isn't catching/ pulling so as to prevent damage.

    Cons:
    - my biggest peeve about the airpods is their molding. I truly believe these can be absolute perfection if apple would just take a moment to really go over their production to make sure the molds are joined perfectly without any overhang or rough edges. I mean, it's common sense, considering what we're paying for these. the rough edges all around and on the ear piece itself tend to irritate my tragus and concha every now and then causing my ear to start burning and then i have to stop using them the rest of the day. it's such a simple fix to make all rounded edges and make sure the 2 joins are perfect. so apple please get on top of this.
    - sadly it doesn't end there as much as i wish it did. i know airpods have the double tap feature to allow a variety of functions but IT DOESN'T WORK! more metaphorically than literally because it does work (some times) but EVERY OTHER TIME I had found myself trying to use this feature to no avail and have just given up. I'm almost having to tap too aggressively to get it to work and thus i rather pause/play/skip using the phone/laptop than frustrate myself with the double tap feature.
    - the only other problem i have with the airpods is that there is sometimes a static lasting .5-1 sec which continues to come and go throughout that days use or just once and doesn't happen again. i can understand this sort of interference from $10/$20 earphones but not $160 ones!

    first time buyer

    • Written by sean M from aldershot

    these are my first pair of AirPods! ,I've got big fingers and the AirPods could do with having anti slip coating on them as they are a bit slippy especially, if you have arthritis in your hands! i was quite impressed with the quality of the pods! and the sound aint to bad either! pity they don't do sound cancelling buds , for them! apart from those two faults ,i think they are worth the money!

    Good experience

    • Written by Haoqian C from Henan

    The Apple Airpods work well, and the sound quality is decent for a truly wireless earphone. it may fall out for some ears, but works fine with mine, and is ok when working out. One thing I have noticed however, the case and earbuds themselves scuff easily, and the left AirPod dented quite heavily after I accidentally dropped it once. The case feels sturdy, but sometimes the hinge creaks and might seem a little flimsy

    Overall a nice and easy experience

    Update

    • Written by Perjah J from Richmond

    I LOVEEEEEEEE my airpods. They are one of the best wireless headphones I've ever had. The only thing that I would like Apple to change is some way that a passcode can be placed on them so nobody else can connect to your airpods. Other than that they are perfect.

    Love These

    • Written by Rory H from Riverton

    They're fantastic! Easy to use, very responsive, good size, good quality.

    The only thing I would recommend is making the Charging case it comes with waterproof. Just in case you leave them in your pants and you or your significant other decides to throw them in the wash without clearing the pockets!
