    Can not complain

    - they work perfectly
    - sound good (slightly better than earpods)
    - Fit great (will vary depending on each persons ear)
    - overpriced

    AIRPOD LATENCY WITH DAW and VIDEO

    I have been involved in electronics, CAD engineering since the 80's, technical gadgets and musician since 60's & 70's. I was hoping to go wireless with my DAW (PRESONUS STUDIO 3 PRO) when playing back songs, recording tracks and play along with various instruments. I learned the hard way with GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT. Recently received the airpods (5/30/17) after a lengthy 6 week wait. For one, why is the customer suffering for wait time and paying for it upfront when all that should fall on Apple. Where is my compensation goody or gift? Us spoiled technical geeks have high standards. Two, in all my years of experience with gadgets, electronics, music, musicianship and paying $159 with tax to $170 something, I was expecting joyful, wireless freedom with my recording software DAW and headphone monitoring.
    What I got was LATENCY, with the wireless BLUETOOTH....
    Why is it with all the knowledge and people associated with APPLE and the proprietary technology that no one was able to tell me this at the apple store or online? I feel burned, HOODWINKED in making the choice to buy airpods, when feeling my years of experience should have steered my otherwise.
    OK, the case and magnetic hold is innovative design, earbuds fit my ears fine, pairing is quick and painless for Apple devices...the Airpods with iMac and iPad Pro work well with audio and streaming tv via subscription tv app, But the BLUETOOTH technology LATENCY with DAW software and video/audio playback is TERRIBLE brings me back to the old days when advent of computers, CAD, music software where LATENCY was very prevalent.
    For my main reason of what I was intending to use airpods for (DAW software) it may very well be a deal breaker and l may get a refund to spend my money elsewhere. I need to say that I am a apple lover mostly, convert since 2015 after using clumsey Microsoft for over 25 years.

    Love them ... gave my Bose to my wife

    These little guys fit really well and extremely comfortable for long period. Good for both personal use or business use (conference calls). They last entire day easily when I rotate them (charging one of them when using the other). Sound quality for calls is very good.

    I wish they are noise cancellation so that I could wear them on the airplane. I had to use my other pair of noise cancellation headphone and miss these little guys every time.

    Only one flaw that I hope Apple would fix in future software release: need some tap gesture to control the playback on iPhone/iPad vs. had to use Siri.

    Amazing

    I usually use wires headphones because I didn't found the right wireless headphones, lately I bought the Bose wireless headphone and start using them for a wile. I struggled with the wire because they are not fully wireless. After Apple introduce the AirPods I was curious and i really need a true wire less headphones. I didn't expect to be that good honestly. listening to music like magic, watching movies and tv shows with the AirPods is just amazing.

    Truly Wireless, Best bass sound quality EVER

    When you take it out, it auto pauses, no wire, at all. I was listening to some old EDM tunes. AND WOAH that bass is amazing. The sound quality is so good! I called someone and my friend told me sound quality on other is is amazing, since they have dainty mic at bottom of each bud. Siri pops up if u tap the buds twice, its extraordinary. I couldn't not write a review. It punched a whole in my wallet since I'm 14 but it was worth it!

    Airpods are to Headphones as iPhone was to the Motorola RAZR

    After a week of using the AirPods, I'm reminded of the transition from the old-style cell phone to the iPhone in 2007. I didn't realize how much I avoided using headphones just because of the hassle of cords with wired sets, and with charging, powering on/off, and pairing with Bluetooth sets. But these are a revelation, and make podcasts, music, and audiobooks a pleasure. They just work.

    LOVE THEM

    Honestly, they are worth the $172. I am SO tired of replacing headphones every 6 months because the cord breaks. The AirPods sound so much better, they NEVER fall out of my ears and charge very quickly. Apple products are just superior in so many ways. They have their flaws like all technology, but working off of an apple keyboard, iMac, Magic Mouse, AirPods and iPhone make feel so much better about my work. I would totally recommend the investment in the AirPods if you use your headphones as often as I do (all day every day).

    Best Headphones Ever

    I have used many different types of ear buds but these are by far my favorite, I purchased in advance before they were even available and I was completely surprised and relieved this weekend to find out that even after the holder and ear buds were left in my shorts pocket and ran through the washing machine and discovered the next morning that they still work! (I did let them sit for a day in rice to dry out) Thank you to Apple for making a great and durable product. Well worth the cost to me!

    Game Changer

    Took a chance on these, completely different than the ill fitting EarPods (which i believe is due to the cords and in-line mic). unbelievable comfort and I'm sure the sound quality is better. Really happy with this purchase.

    Aweful

    These things are awful.
    1) When you turn your head they disconnect because they think you took them out of your ear. If you open your mouth wide....they disconnect. If you bend over to pick something up off the floor....they disconnect because they think you took them our of your ear.

    2) Parring with multiple devices is a pain. Switching between my phone and my iPad is virtually impossible to figure out. I get so frustrated with these darn things.

    3) The case is a dirt trap.

    Apple's Magic. Trifles in Perfection.

    Just bought one day ago...

    Package:
    When I just took the package hand, I started to get enjoy. Awesome!!!

    Case:
    Looks fantastic outside and inside. Very enjoyable to hold in hand.
    Very enjoyable colors of large indicator and also how it lights up and light down.
    Magnets very cool idea.
    24 hours of listening, is it not a magic? It is!!!

    AirPods:
    Look almost like EarPods just without a cable. For my ears they fit awesome.
    Connection is cool. Very stable and supports long distance.
    W1 chip is amazing.

    Thanks Apple.

    Great sound and simple to use

    I can't really add anything that hasn't been said. They work perfect, sound great and are comfortable. So far they have been the best pair of wireless earphones I've had for the money.

    Best pair of headphones I've owned!

    These are truly the best headphones I have owned. The ease of set up is amazing, open the case and they're ready to go seconds later! They work flawlessly with all Apple devices and easily switch between devices as I use them on my iPhone, Mac & Apple TV with no problem. Truly great!

    I like the AirPods

    the AirPods is a very good thing

    I love them except when I need to control the iPhone

    I love almost everything about them, and my ears are shaped so they stay in even when jumping rope. But...you aren't going to force me to use Siri. No way. Why should I have to look like an idiot talking to myself simply to skip to the next song or reduce the volume? And many of us have work iPhones which have Siri locked out of the ecosystem for security reasons. PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE update with more useful tap commands mirroring those of the conventional headset. If someone comes out with similar BT headset without the stubborn adherence to Siri control, I'm gone.

    Great product

    After reading/watching several reviews I finally decided to purchase these. And I'm so glad I did! I use them all the time at work and home. Yeah, they may look funny and get a lot of stupid looks, but I really don't care. I was worried about audio latency when watching video but if there is any, I don't notice it. If EarPods fit for you, then these will fit perfectly.

    Great little gadget. Always room for improvement.

    They sound great! Easy to wear for long periods of time. I don't like to keep both of them in, as they do a bit of noise cancellation. However not well. It's more just plugging and sealing your ear rather than actively canceling them out.

    Something I don't understand is if I'm using one AirPod to listen to music and the other one is just sitting on my desk... the sitting AirPod is still playing music the same as the one I'm wearing. I'd assume it'd be in a power saving state. Not using the speaker as it's not detecting being in an ear.

    Amazing!

    I'll admit, I was skeptical. I was afraid they wouldn't stay in my ears and they wouldn't sound great. But boy am I glad I purchased these! They are so easy to use. Very quick connection and convenient in pretty much every aspect. They feel lighter than the ear buds that come with the phones and there are no wires to tangle. I have really enjoyed them and I recommend them all the time.

    Simplicity at its best

    AirPods are well designed, have great fitting, battery life is as promised.
    Glossy case require some care while handling but product is really amazing.

    Sound quality -
    I listen my music over Spotify and these AirPods performs really well.
    Good base and mids are great.

    Smart feature -
    Remove one AirPod and music will be paused this is a great feature and saves battery.

    Battery charging is quick and simple
