    Awesome product but it has a major flaw

    So I mean there awesome but god forbid you lose the headphones in the case cause you can only track the headphones individually which is utterly ridiculous who decides to put a twxking device in the headphones and not the case their in most of the time.

    A "6 stars" wireless ear phone

    The whole packing (tiny in size), light weight (against drop tests), shape (sexy), ease of use (magnetic door) and intelligent on/off detection already won "5 stars" award. The 6th is given to the customization option to each Pod in Bluetooth setting that I can now double tab left one and jump to next track of music; double tab the right one to pause or playback, without the need of taking out iPhone and open the Music App. Double tabbing also works when "listening" to YouTube videos... What a wonderful wireless product from Apple.
    Guess once company desk phone be upgraded to support Bluetooth, I can even pair them in the office!

    The only short coming is the voice quality is poor in a crowded train (MTR in HK) where thousands of people switched on their smartphones and wireless signal could be interference severely to each other. A limitation to Bluetooth technology?

    Best Truly Wireless Headphones ATM

    When the Airpods were first revealed, I, like many other users, were not impressed by its design. Design may be the only flaw of the Airpods, which honestly isn't all too bad, especially seeing more and more people adopting these over other truly wireless headphones.

    First of all, I'm an Android user, using a Pixel 2. Naturally, I did my homework on the Google Pixel Buds, which are direct competitors from the Android world. I was turned off that the Pixel Buds had a wire that will always be dangling behind my neck & that each bud ultimately could not be used independently. Of course, I also took a look at other alternatives in the truly wireless market, including the Samsung Gear Icon X 2018 & Jabra Elite 65T, which mostly incorporate an "in ear" design, blocking out any external noise when navigating our whereabouts. Sure, there is software that pulls in external audio, but it just sounds too artificial at the moment.

    As a New Yorker, it's quintessential to be aware of my surroundings, so the Airpods fit that criteria perfectly with its open ear design & being able to use each Airpod independently, hence, I'm able to alternate between each Airpod when one is low on battery. Speaking of battery, the endurance of these are amazing. The advertised 5 hours of usage is no joke. I've been able to routinely get 5 hrs & some more out of each Airpod, which I rarely keep in my ears for over 4 hrs at most. This easily eliminates the anxiety of getting that low battery notification & having to put up with prolonged charging times. The Airpods also provide 3 hrs of listening with 15 minutes of charge time so, even if you run out of juice, recharging will be a snap.

    I don't consider myself an "audiophile" so I can't comment on the audio quality. I will say that the Airpods sound crisp and clear, also outputting loud enough sound when needed if a little noisier environments. Music sounds pretty good, with a decent amount of bass.

    I've user other truly wireless headphones before, & there's usually difficulty for the headphones when coming across heavy traffic, where multiple signals can interfere with your Bluetooth connection, which leads to audio being cut out, hearing static from time to time. The Airpods, with the W1 chip, thankfully does not have this issue. I was able to walk through The Oculus in NYC, an area that always gives me signal interference when I walk through the center, where I'm happy to say that the Airpods did not experience any interference.

    Overall, the Airpods are sensational for first generation truly wireless headphones. Only major gripe I have would be the design, where people would say is like a "Q-tip sticking out of your ear" which is pretty much all that can be said. When you consider all the pros it brings to the table, I'm more than happy with living with this flaw & definitely looking forward to the 2nd generation of Airpods.

    Best Wireless Earphones

    I am not one for using earphones of any kind...however after seeing these in San Francisco, I purchased them and LOVE them! They are easy to use, fit comfortabley and hold a charge for a long time. I love that the case recharges them if it is charged. If your in doubt, you should get them...you won't regret it!

    Dropped once- never the same

    I received my AirPods for Christmas this past December, and I want so badly to give AirPods an amazing review because I love a majority of the features, but I dropped them one time (still in the case) while walking my dog and they have glitched ever since! When I initially picked them up from the ground one of them had no sound at all, and I had to put it back in the case over and over to get it to regain sound. Once one headphone regained sound the other one lost it. They also disconnected from the bluetooth on my phone, and I had to reconnect them, and now I think the sound quality is almost dirt poor. I've had Apple products since 2009 and throughout all Apple purchases, my biggest overall complaint is durability. Like hello, we are just now maybe coming around to not having cracked screens all over the place but heaven forbid I drop my $150 headphones once.

    Brilliant

    AirPods are excellent. They are lightweight and the sound is very impressive. They are super easy to connect to the Apple Watch, MacBook pro and iPhone. The charging case is nice and small giving you 24hrs charge for the AirPods. The AirPods are a little lose in one ear, but silicon ear pads from Amazon hold them perfectly for running. Shame Apple don't sell them. Only other minor negative is the ear pads don't fit in case. I recently purchased Bose SoundSport Free from Apple, they were rubbish and the left ear kept disconnecting every few seconds; seems to be a known fault. They were very bulky and uncomfortable to wear. Reviews say the sound is better on Bose, I can't hear the difference. Apple all day long!!

    They Don’t Fit My Ears

    I can’t keep them in my ears because they don’t fit. And they hurt my ears if I try to put them in and wear them. So I really can’t use them. They came with my iPhone 7 Plus. I see they are charging 150 to buy these separately.

    Broke right after warranty expired, $138 to repair!

    I loved my AirPods during the first year that I owned them, however after about a year, both microphones stopped working. This means no Siri, and no phone calls. When I contacted Apple Support to see how much the repair would be, they told me it would cost $138! Not only is this only $20 less than a brand new pair, but the repair warranty would only last 90 days. Since there is no extended warranty option, if your AirPods stop working after a year, you might be stuck with shelling out enough money to buy a brand new pair.

    Airpods are good but I had to return them.

    I bought Airpods 15 days ago. the pairing was simple but this is not a huge deal breaker as we pair any headset for once only on any phone unless you live under a rock with bluetooth 4.2 and up. sound quality is ok neither great nor louder if you often travel in a bus. The most annoying thing is when you use them while running on sidewalks, they seems disconnect for a fraction of secs every few minutes when you keep you phone inside the pocket( I dont expect a 160$ airpods to disconnect like this). Also if you get multiple bluetooth devices connected like a watch, this disconnection issues seems works along with automatic play back issues with Apple music.

    Simply, these are not worth it if you are intended to listen to music on these.
    Pros:

    ease of use and call quality is top Notch with great noise cancellation during calls. You seem to make more calls to family and friends due to this.
    double tap functionality to skip tracks in apple music

    Drawbacks:

    you cant skip tracks for other apps like Spotify, Sound cloud
    you cannot use 1 earpod to listen to music on Iphone( Mac is an exception)
    music quality is ok and sound is not that loud.
    cant use them for outdoor activities.

    Best Wireless Headphones

    These are the best pair of not only wireless headphones, but headphones in general, that i've ever used! They're so small, yet sleek and sophisticated. I don't have to worry about my arms/hands tripping over the wires when i'm moving around, working out, cooking, etc. If you're willing to dish out about $170 for this, these are SO worth it. People complaining have just gotten rotten pairs. Invest in these and you can't go wrong.

    Overall, Great For Phone Calls

    I have not had extensive experience and time to use my AirPods, but after a few initial phone calls (my primary use for the item), I can report that they work well and are very easy to use. I was told by an Apple employee before buying the AirPods that their microphones work better if you angle the stems toward your face, in the direction of your mouth. Keeping the AirPods at that angle takes occasional re-positioning on one of my ears, but in general the microphone quality is great, which is not the case with many other wireless Bluetooth earbuds.

    I tried the trick whereby you use both AirPods for about 80-90 minutes on a phone call, then you remove one AirPod at a time and recharge it while using the other AirPod. After recharging each pod for about ten minutes, I was able to use both pods again and complete a call without interruption that lasted over two hours. I am going to try using both pods for that length of time without recharging, at some point, to see if a single charge might last for more than two hours. However, be assured that you can use one pod at a time for phone calls (and I presume for music listening, as well), which allows you to keep charging one pod at a time and keep your listening or calling session going indefinitely.

    Pairing the AirPods with my phone was quick and effortless - you simply charge them in the case, then open the cover on the case with it next to your device. The pairing is done automatically. Thereafter, your AirPods will connect to your device whenever you place one or both of them in your ears. The battery charge level in the pods is displayed on the device while the pods are connected to it. The Bluetooth connection is solid and the range seems at least as good or better than conventional Bluetooth technology on other products.

    The AirPods are very comfortable resting in my outer ears. Volume is very strong - I turned it down from the level used with my TaoTronics earbuds. Volume level is slightly lower using only one pod compared to using both pods. The volume of your voice heard by the other party on the call will also be a little lower using only one pod compared to using two. The accelerometers work very effectively to activate and connect each pod when it is placed in the ear. All in all, I'm enjoying my AirPods so far for phone calls - it is a pleasure to wear and use such a convenient and comfortable pair of earbuds. I was lucky to be able to purchase them using a store credit for turning in my old iPhone - I received a great value.

    ​ Lovely WHEN they work, otherwise, a nightmare.

    Yes, pairing them up with your iPhone for the first time might be magic, but that's exactly where the magic stops. After that, it is one annoyance after another. Are they not supposed to be a tiny bit "smart"? If so, why do I have to, so often, connect them manually to whatever device I am using? I swap from iPhone to iPad occasionally. Watching a tv series on the iPad is near impossible, it keeps disconnecting, all the while the stupid thing is on my ear, and my iPhone is not being touched. It is soooo annoying. I get out of the car to go for a walk, put them on, wait and wait, and 90% of the time they just won't connect to the iPhone. All in all, a truly frustrating and awful experience. I miss Steve Jobs.

    Not worth it

    Let me start with saying we are all in Apple...Phones, iPads, tv’s and computer and I love their products but not the AirPods!

    My son bought a pair of AirPods a year ago and he takes very good care of them. The original pair started having issues (not able to hear out of both AirPods even with the volume on high) about 8 months after purchasing them and Apple was very easy to work with and we sent them back and they replaced them with a brand new pair. The replacement pair started having the same issues about a month ago and now we are on another brand new pair.

    Poor fit and poor frequency feedback

    These have A frequency issue. When in my ear if I lisened carefully I could feel the reverb in my, like a blown speaker in a car. I had the volume set at 25% and could easily hear conversations 10 feet away.After removing these from my ear I now feel stuffed, inflamed and as if I have water in my ear. As if you are floating under water or have water in your inner ear from diving. Here we are 8 days later I still feel the same. Slightly improved but still bad. There is something wrong with how the sound ports into the ear canal if you do not have an ear that fits perfectly with this one size ear model.

    These were returned and I am now trying Another brand.

    Perfect Accessory!

    Lovin' my AirPods! They fit comfortably in my ears - sound is fantastic and I'm so glad to be rid of the earbud cords. I also like the connection to Siri (two finger taps on the AirPod) convenient and easy to use for volume control etc. Battery life is better than expected.
    I highly recommend the AirPods. I only wish I would have purchased them sooner.

    If I could give this zero stars I would.

    Had these for less than two months. Heaps of connectivity issues. Terrible sound quality. Phone calls are even worse with wind noise. Sometimes one will work without the other working. Recently noticed they weren’t charging or disconnecting from my phone and just running out of battery. Took them to Apple Carindale and they told me I had dropped them in water. I hadn’t. They sit next to your skin and pick up moisture. Do not buy these headphones unless you want to use them as a paperweight in a couple of months. Mine will be going in a blender.

    Left airpod stopped functioning after 3rd use

    Loved the airpods until about their 3rd use when the left airpod completely stopped working. I troubleshot the problem without any success (I tired everything). Its very frustrating to pay top dollar for a dysfunctional product.

    (WARNING) Don’t get these read those before you do

    These things can be good but don’t get it you really don’t want because they can be damaged to easy omg so easy and they can be scratched so easy it’s not even funny. Apple didn’t put out any time to this and not even their phone bc half the their the same stuff on a phone god Apple. Just get Samsung wireless earbuds or whatever because they put time into that stuff. I’m switching to Samsung. Apples bad tbh
