    They just work!

    True to classic Apple form, the AirPods "just work" - just as advertised after opening the case my iPhone instantly recognized the devices and synced to them. Now anytime I open he case and put a "pod" in my ear I'm instantly connected and I don't have to fumble around in settings. The audio quality, to me, seems superior to the bundled EarPods and these devices do truly stay in the ear and don't wobble. I've gone for jogs, shaken my head, etc and they have not budged in the slightest! These are a terrific accessory for iPhone - I love not have to worry about cables while laying in be down, studying etc! I'm very impressed by the AirPods - especially considering these are the "first generation", I can't wait for future iterations.

    Near perfect

    I am normally an instant buyer of anything New from Apple but it took me a while to take the plunge to buy the AirPods, I wasn't sure if they were going to be any better than other wireless ear pods I have, however, they are terrific. Increably simple to connect and then use one any Apple device through cloud settings carried across to all your devices. It's simple and works effective and how all Bluetooth devices should connect.

    Quality is as you would expect from an Apple product, beautiful. Strange look at first but icon all the same. Sound is very clear, plenty of base, miss a little vacant but you can hear the detail in songs. You would probably struggle to get much better sound for the size and cost. Certainly not disappointing by any stretch of the imagination, and the more you listen the more satisfying they seem to be.

    They are a perfect fit, comfortable and I don't have any loss anxiety, just terrific from that perspective.

    Siri works but just not practical to use to forward or rewind tracks and adjust volume especially if you are on public transport. It is only that reason why I have given them 4 stars, and to be fair I would probably have given them 4.5. Hopefully, Apple will add the ability to tap to forward a track or double tap to rewind as others do. Maybe tap and hold for siri.

    I would absolutely recommend them whether excercise or just hanging out. Freedom from wires cannot be underestimated!

    Dazzling

    The Apple AirPods, as elegant as ever, brings the foremost performance to life, with all the advanced chipsets, sound quality, and battery life, all seamlessly put together in a snazzy, unibody. In addition to that, it connects to your iPhone with ease.

    Best earphones ever!!

    From day one, I fell in love with my AirPods. Some friends were making fun of me saying the headphones would drop down quickly, so I decided to go on the treadmill speeding as much as I could for one hour. Guess what, it went so well that I almost forgot I was wearing them, and the sound quality was perfect all the way through! I couldn't be happier with this purchase. By the way, the whole family has bought the AirPods now. Do not think twice about buying them, just do it, and you will not regret. They are a quality of life!! Superb headphones!

    Incredible

    I bought these thinking "yea right they work like they showed in the keynote but let me try them". These things are amazing. Blew my mind how simple it is to pair. So useful if someone tries to talk to me I can simply pull one AirPod out and it pauses my music. Someone calls, I can double tap to answer and my friends say they hear me better through the AirPods. My case lasts days before I have to charge. I recommend these to everyone.

    Phenomenal Quality

    The airpods are the first product in such a long while that totally live up to their name. Excellent sound, easy connection and solid engineering. Worth every penny!

    Worth every penny.

    Excellence that is culminated in a full grown product. Unlike others, this is a matured Apple product. They got it right !
    There is of course room for improvement, but hardware wise it's hard to see how they could be better.

    I Like

    I'm an old guy and not fond of putting things in my ear, but since these are wireless, I thought I might try.

    Glad I did. Sound, not super quality, is beyond expectations and certainly very pleasing. The "pods" seem to disappear from my ears after awhile and just make sound. Very pleasant extended experience.

    I found the maximum sound level adequate.

    Double tapping to get Siri's attention worked, but (my voice) sound quality was very poor.

    I have not spent a great deal of time with these, so I may not have optimized my interaction with them.

    A great idea, and I think they have a handle on it. Needs a bit of tweaking.

    Great wireless headphones!

    I was super excited when this package came. They were made well and the quality of the headphones and case exceeded my expectations. Listening quality is good and Siri works great. I did have to buy off amazon a adapter for when I run but other than that they stay in the ear well!

    Critical design flaw - LIFE

    This product should never have been designed, should never have been released. And, most important, should never be bought.
    Keeping track of two tiny things is a recipe for loss. And guess what, one got lost. Another person in the household bought these and now only has half a pair. If these were $20, no problem with losing one. At this price they should have built-in replacement policy - 1 per month - because: LIFE.

    LIKE MAGIC!

    I can finally exercise without the cord pulling on my ears. The AirPods are very lightweight, they stay in your ear better than the EarPods. There is no delay when watching videos on your iPhone, considering they connect via Bluetooth that's a big plus. If I could change anything it would be to have the ability to skip tracks by double tapping on the right AirPod and invoke Siri by double tapping on the left AirPod. Hopefully this is only a software update that will come in the future. As of now you both the left and right AirPod invoke Siri. I use it to skip to the next song. You can change this in settings to play and pause music. Overall I would definitely recommend them, sometimes I forget I'm wearing them when I'm working out. Great job Apple! (As usual).

    Great Design, SubPar Performance

    I received and have been using my AirPods for the past few days. I love the design, but I have been very let down by the performance. Listening to music is often "spotty", meaning that the song will often times pause for a split-second, which is very annoying. At times, it has been so bad that I just took them out and quit listening. The audio quality while using them for a phone call is bad. They make a "hissing" sound -- almost like someone is blowing into the mic.

    Apple has always prided themselves on waiting until products are perfected prior to selling them; thus, I have been very surprised at the poor performance of these AirPods.

    Amazing but they kill my phone battery

    These headphones are amazing. Out of the box they were super easy to connect to my phone. They had no problem initiating the automatic pairing feature. There was some initial connectivity issues, but after the first day they haven't had any problems. I think it was due to the fact I have two iPhones and an iPad all under the same Apple id account. So it might have tried to pair with a different one. A few downsides, they are amazingly small, so there is a possibility that I will eventually loose them. On the plus side, they are small and powerful. The battery case is small as well. Other downside is that they kill my iPhone battery since it's using Bluetooth to connect so my headphones last longer than my phone. It could also be due to the fact I don't have the newest phone, but who knows.

    Perfection.

    The AirPods are a must for any fitness junkie. I love being able to hit the gym and never have to worry about cables getting in the way. I was worried that they would fall out, but I have not had that happen yet.

    A basically disposable product for $159?

    I would probably give the airpods about a 3.5-4 star review if Apple created a reasonable way to track them when they are misplaced and or some discounted replacement cost for the individual components. I ordered my airpods in December and probably had one of the first sets delivered. The functionality is pretty good, but there are definite downsides compared to just the standard apple head phones. No volume adjustment, no song pause, play, skip other than by taking them out or using siri. I recently spent an afternoon running around with the right pod in making and taking calls. At some point the left pod in the case must have fallen out of my pocket because when I got home I could not find them. A quick google search said the find my iPhone app should provide tracking info. I checked and about 5 of my other Apple devices show up but no airpods -no case, no left pod, no right pod. It had been at most a couple hours since I had the case and it was charged the night before so I’m sure the battery didn’t die. Based on my pattern that day just a last know location when the case/ left pod were connected to my phone would have been all I needed for a 95%+ chance at finding them. I called apple care and spoke to a very nice but not very well informed apple representative. He suggested finding the serial number and reporting the loss to law enforcement. The only other option offered is to buy another complete set for full price and presumably wait the 6 weeks shown on the apple site for shipping. I think I'll pass. Apple products are always priced at a steep premium but I've always found them to be a great value as well. This is just not the case with the airpods.

    Don't stay in my ears!

    I really wanted to love these. I don't know why Apple thinks 1 size fits all is going to work.
    CONS:
    Do not stay in my ears, that's sitting at my desk. I can't imagine how anyone can work out with these things. Going for a walk, or eating with them in, forget it. Cannot wear them with a stocking car or hood, it will knock them out almost immediately.
    Music cuts out, with my iPhone IN MY shirt pocket, if I turn my head to the left, no problem, if I turn my head to the right, sound is gone.
    Can't use them for phone calls, party on other end can't hear me.
    Volume, they are almost loud enough.
    PROS:
    Well, 5 stars for coolness factor.
    Battery life - I listen all day, up to 12 or 14 hours a day, and the little case that stores a charge and can quickly recharge the airpods is very cool.
    Sound quality - seems to be really good, and for the few minutes I can get them to fit in my ears, they seem good at outside noise reduction.
    Comforartable - they are light and I believe I could leave them in for hours without discomfort, but, since they fall out every 4-15 minutes, I will never know.
    I will be returning these, I guess I'm stuck buying PowerBeats as truly wireless earbuds are not ready for primetime.
