  • Overview

    Wireless. Effortless. Magical.

    AirPods will forever change the way you use headphones. Whenever you pull your AirPods out of the charging case, they instantly turn on and connect to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad or Mac.(1) Audio automatically plays as soon as you put them in your ears and pauses when you take them out. To adjust the volume, change the song, make a call or even get directions, just double-tap to activate Siri.

    Driven by the custom Apple W1 chip, AirPods use optical sensors and a motion accelerometer to detect when they’re in your ears. Whether you’re using both AirPods or just one, the W1 chip automatically routes the audio and engages the microphone. And when you’re on a call or talking to Siri, an additional accelerometer works with beamforming microphones to filter out background noise and focus on the sound of your voice. Because the ultra-low-power W1 chip manages battery life so well, AirPods deliver an industry-leading 5 hours of listening time on one charge.(2) And they’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time.(3) Need a quick charge? Just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time.(4)

      Exceptional!

      Best pair of truly wireless earphones I have ever owned.

These are simple to use, sound great, and are great for so many activities including: running, commute to work on the train, listening to podcasts and music, and making your friends jealous. If you're on the fence (as I was) try them out and you will love them. One of the best products Apple has made, it follows the simplistic and high quality design this company is revered for. Great job, Apple!

      Nice! link once and voila works flawlessly every time.

      awesome sound. you can use in one ear at a time, when you are biking , walking around doing home stuff and still be cognizant of sounds and things around you. t awesome sound. you can use in one ear at a time, when you are biking , walking around doing home stuff and still be cognizant of sounds and things around you. the best feature is of course the bluetooth connectivity thats so simple. open the case and put them in your ears. no buttons to press, no shenanigans at all. drawbacks- no colors only white for now. water resistant- maybe maybe not. and if someway they can get rid of the longer microphone stick sticking out of the ears.

      Lost a star because of a feature I expected

      Overall I am very pleased with my apple AirPods. I have one huge disappointment though. While researching the AirPods I kept reading about a feature to seamless Overall I am very pleased with my apple AirPods. I have one huge disappointment though. While researching the AirPods I kept reading about a feature to seamlessly connect between my phone and my computer as to not need to actually go into bluetooth settings and select connect. When I purchased them and found out that feature had been removed I was extremely disappointed. I was tempted to only give them 3 stars, but other than that one feature I am very pleased.

      Awesome product...

      Those who have given less positive reviews... if they fall out of your ears you can get cheap gel skins that hold them in tight. Those so called audiophiles who Those who have given less positive reviews... if they fall out of your ears you can get cheap gel skins that hold them in tight. Those so called audiophiles who say the sound quality is not brilliant - well I AM an audiophile having been involved in music professionally for over 30 years. I have owned Sennheiser, Bose etc and bang for buck these are up there with them - so well worth the money. I got these and on opening the charge box the connect option popped up on my iPhone X. Went straight to playing Something (VIP) by Azedia to check out the bass notes in particular - absolutely brilliant... across the whole range! These are better than any other earphones produced by Apple. Make sure you have the right equalisation settings on your phone to get the best out of these. Highly recommended *****

      Can’t find when lost/connection started dropping.

      They were great when I first got them. Took them to work for 6 months I’m in the building trade. Get a call. Put them in get great sound on call then listen to They were great when I first got them. Took them to work for 6 months I’m in the building trade. Get a call. Put them in get great sound on call then listen to music. Wear them at gym,don’t fall out. Started to lose connection last few weeks. The problem is the box is so shiny slippery and small it falls out of your pocket lost them last week at cinema visit. No iphone finder to find them as this only works when they are out of the box. I think they need a way to attach the box (iPod shuffle) keyring attachment!
