  • Best Answer:

    They should be fairly be resistant against things like light rain and sweat but nothing anymore severer than that. That means you should not use then in Heavy rain, swimming, or in the bath/shower.

  • Depends I accidentally put my boyfriends AirPods in the washing machine not knowing they were in there and when I took them out of the charging case the AirPods were completely dry including the case and they still worked perfectly. Definitely wouldn’t recommend but they can take a fair bit of water since they survived the washing machine

  • I know the word from Apple is that Airpods are not waterproof. But I just left my airpods loose (i.e. NOT IN THE THE CHARGING CASE) in my pants pocket and my wife put the pants in the washing machine. Went through a full wash, rinse cycle. Then a drying cycle in the dryer. And... (drumroll please) they are working perfectly! So impressed with Apple products again and again.

  • Obviously AirPods are advertised as completely non waterproof. However, I dropped my AirPods in a hot tub and they were completely submerged for multiple minutes. When I pulled them out and dried them off they worked like nothing even happened and charge without problem as well. This is definitely an exception and not the rule but I’m so impressed. Apple always makes high quality products and I’m sure any other headphone would be completely unusable after something like this.

  • Supposedly they are not but I accidentally left my AirPods inside my pants and completely forgot when I put them in the washer today. Went out to switch the load and saw the pods were in there. Immediately thought I’m screwed and when I placed them back inside the charging pod the small light turned on so I put them in my ear and TADAAA they work! Not saying go dunk them in a glass of water but hey counting this as a blessing! Also, the whole charging pod and ear attachments themselves were washed. So they can take some water.
