    Completely awesome wireless earbuds

    I've had these since they were launched and they are worth every cent.

    Pairing: it's magically easy - harnessing iCloud to automatically pair to all of your devices after you've paired to the 1st one is a masterstroke by Apple. I have run into a few minor connection issues, but they are trivial to fix by either switching Bluetooth off for a moment and then back on (on your device), or by returning the AirPods to their case, and then taking them back out for use. At worst, a device reboot fixes things nicely.

    Use: Audio is clear and crisp with volume controlled either by your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch in a snap. You can also ask Siri to make it louder or quieter and she does it. Taking one AirPod out to talk to a person automatically pauses the audio and putting it back in resumes playback. Genius.

    Beamforming Mics: The microphones work incredibly well and being able to double tap on an AirPod to invoke Siri or to Play/Pause the audio is great. The newer versions of iOS allow you to choose a different double tap function for each AirPod independently.

    Battery life: It's brilliant and under normal use - i.e. 45 minute train ride, constantly listening to music then making phone calls and using Siri to dictate text messages. I have not yet run them flat thanks to the fact that they recharge themselves whenever they are placed back in the case, which you can then recharge when you get to your home/office etc and just plug in for a while to top the case up. Charging is fast and easy.

    The future: If Apple somehow manages to work out a way to make these noise cancelling, well now, that would be a feat of magic. Then they would need to retitle this product as MagicAirPods.

    Excellent product

    Exceptional sound quality, superb battery life. The charging case is very handy. The AirPods pair effortlessly to your Apple devices, but they also pair nearly as well with non-Apple devices via Bluetooth. I thought they might feel a bit insecure in my ears - but that wasn't the case. They fit my ears quite well, and they don't use that ridiculous "rubber plug" concept that other ear phone products appear to default to. The $160 price is a tough nut, but I can assure you that the quality and performance does make up for it. I've tried many different high end brands, and these are superior in every way.

    I do wish they would have included just one button to active Siri. They come with the charging case, the pods themselves, and a USB cable. Hey Apple... would it have killed you to simply throw in the cheap "cube" style charger? You will have to go find your own charger to plug that USB cable into; Apple left this $3 accessory out of the package, unlike their many other products.

    Not usual Apple quality

    A fan of all things Apple, I am saddened to be disappointed with the AirPods. I chose because I always found the wired EarPods comfortable. But it's time to go wireless. Unfortunately the AirPods at times are tinny when on call. Also, with normal use being listening and talking on calls, I am getting only 2-3 hours and half to switch to phone speaker while waiting for recharge. The good news is they are comfortable and recharge quickly but I cannot recommend if need for all day use unless you can work around the frequent recharge requirement. As expected they are comfortable to wear. I think if Apple sold with two pairs in each case, this would be a great option. That would allow one pair to charge while the wearing the other. And you can change one at a time. so no loss of use during change. This second pair would raise price somewhat but would make it a better purchase. The occasional tinniness also needs solution. If all day use is needed likely best to stay with EarPods, Beats or Bose wireless solution.

    Curiosity got the better of me...

    Amazing. I've been holding off on these for months as I expected the sound quality to be poor and they were hard to get hold of. After spotting them in the Edinburgh Apple store and asking for a trial, I was blown away. Amazingly innovative and simple to use, they are a proper show-off for those of us in love with the Apple ecosystem. I have a pair of Beats wired and wireless for running, and they are on a par with the wireless ones for sound quality but easier to use. There are loads of folks mentioning the fit issue, and I would agree with them that they aren't for everyone and I can't run in them without a hat to hold them in...but I don't care as the positives far outweigh that one negative. Amazing, and the best product Apple have released in ages....

    Simply profoundly perfect!

    One of my favorite Apple products of all time! Pure brilliance in design and performance. I could not stop looking at them and their case the first day I purchased. The wires from the past always drove me nuts. There was never a clever way to master that spaghetti mess of wire. Air Pods solved the problem. So easy. So compact.Up and running in seconds. Seamless and flawless connection and disconnecting. The case is a charged backup battery. Brilliant. It's like a little dental floss case. I can't believe I waited this long to purchase. And oh yeah.... BRILLIANT SOUND!

    Perfect for a College Student

    I got my AirPods about a year ago and brought them with me to college. They work perfectly for me as a college student because they’re portable, discreet, and they sound awesome. The battery life is pretty good and the pairing is very quick and convenient, not to mention they’re small and they charge really easily. Having them charge on the same cable as my iPhone does is really handy, and the touch controls are really convenient. I remapped the touch controls for my AirPods to skip with a tap to the right and activate Siri with a tap to the left. Having this customizability is really nice. Overall, I’d definitely recommend these to any college student or anyone else looking for some portable Bluetooth headphones.

    Phenomenal Product

    I cannot wait to see how Apple improves upon these already amazing headphones. I would have to admit that I was skeptical at first, but was blown away with the high speed connectivity. They connect to my Apple products far better than even some of the best headphones on the market like Bose. And the sound quality is simply superb. Like I said, I cannot wait for Apple to improve upon these gems.

    utter waste of money, the pause function works on a "when it can be bothered" basis when you take one of them out and when it does work good luck getting the music started again without going back to your device to either press play or reconnect the airpods themselves! I wouldn't mind but the range should be better than from my wrist to my ears!!!!!!!!!!! also since I got these £159 beauties when people call my iPhone I cant hear them even when nothing is connected to them.

    These are outstanding, looks are fine.

    I'm going to argue with the many people who say the AirPods look dumb. Hold them up next to a wired EarPod. The stem that hangs out of the ear is about 3/16" longer and maybe 1/16" wider than the EarPod stem. Do you really think that's going to make a visual difference? And there's no wire dangling out of them, so the appearance is cleaner in that regard. People are used to the EarPod, and the AirPod just doesn't look very different. Also, cats don't think of them as a potential cat toy.

    The sound is excellent, not quite what I get from Sony studio monitor headphones, but balanced and open, with each instrument distinct, not blurry or distorted. But the sheer wireless convenience and ease of the user interface is the big attraction. Long battery life is another good point. When these get down to 10%, you still have a lot of listening time left. I have no trouble with connecting. I'm not on the phone a lot, but they seem to work fine for answering calls. Just get out your credit card, grit your teeth, and buy a pair. The coolness of pausing the playback just by pulling one out of your ear can't be understood until somebody wants to talk to you and you can talk back without missing anything! There's a little wrinkle Beats never thought of! Here's another, open the case, and a window pops up on your iPhone with the charge status of the case and Pods.

    And there's one more thing, the guys who say one of the earpieces won't work, have (probably) discovered a feature. If you start them up with one AirPod out of your ear, the other one will switch to mono sound and play. And they don't switch back just because you put the loose AirPod in your ear. I believe this is to assist people who can only hear with one ear. It hardly seems fair that they should have to buy both AirPods.

    Very good

    Was very sceptical about these mainly due to cost but decided to buy them anyway, I have not been disappointed they are very very good. They sit in my ears very comfortably and I almost forget they are there, they are stupidly easy to set up and I’ve never had a problem with battery life. The only drawback is they look pretty stupid. I find I get strange looks but they seem to look better on people with longer hair. Other than that I highly recommend these!

    Works flawlessly for my iPhone, but has problems with my Mac Book

    On my iPhone it connects flawlessly and the sound quality is really good (nice warm bass and the tops is not over powering). But, when using on my Mac Book, the connection is really bad, the sound stutters.

    I really want to give them a 5/5 rating, but as its meant to work between different devices, it just does not.

    I am keeping them as I mainly use them on my iPhone and really happy with them. But, Apple you need to sort this out.

    A Must-Have Accessory

    They sound great, work seamlessly with apple watch and phone, and stay surprisingly secure in your ears. Furthermore, if you do your homework you will discover that the $159 price is less than other similar (or lower) quality products. I'm not a tech kind of guy, nor do I have any conflicts of interest in writing this review. Very pleased with this purchase.

    Exactly what I've been waiting for

    I noticed that every time my headphones would fall out would be because the cord got yanked on. These obviously solve that problem. I've had these for several months and use them daily. I've only had them run out of battery once. I highly recommend these.

    I've always been an Apple person, but even so I judge their products fairly and with no bias. I've never really used the standard apple headphones, instead using Audio-Technica M50x for home and Powerbeats Wireless for out and about. I had put off buying these Airpods for a while. My mother is always outside working on the property and likes to listen to music. I have bought many headphones, all end up failing after weeks or they dont fit well, or the sound quality is just not there. So I bought these for her a few weeks ago. Straight out of the box, she was raving about them. No issues. Great quality sound and fit perfectly with no falling out issues. So I bought myself some. Best things ever. Work seamlessly with all my apple devices and freeing. Sound quality is pretty good, although not Audio-Technica qual, but enough to hold their own. Worth every cent. I was concerned the bluetooth would have latency issues with videos, but connected to my MacBook pro, they have no lag or delay what so ever. Well done Apple

    Wonderful and good sound

    Very good sound from these tiny and compact AirPods. Love cordless design.
    Not as good a dynamic sound as my Sennheiser hdr 195 wireless headphones ��
