    They Cut off my MacBook Air

    When I lay the case on the left hand side near the TAB button my MacBook Air will simply SHUTDOWN!

    Amazing and magical

    Received AirPods for Christmas. They are all Apple advertised and then some. Work perfectly...stay in my ears...fit and finish is beautiful. The sound is great. They work without hesitation between iPhone and iPad. Thank you Apple for another amazing product.

    My favorite Apple purchase of 2017.

    Really don't have anything but positive things to say about AirPods. They are well worth the price I paid for them and have literally changed the way I listen to podcasts and music on my phone.

    Really magical

    Regular EarPods used to CONSTANTLY fall out of my ears, so I was hesitant to even try AirPods ... but I'm glad I did. They never fall out of my ears (the weight of the EarPod cord + gravity was what was pulling them out of my ears).

    The experience of pairing is really magical. They sound amazing, and you can't even feel them in your ears, it's like music is magically playing in your brain. If you want to connect to your Mac or Apple TV, it's a quick process ... you can watch television while your spouse sleeps. It's really my favorite Apple Product since the iPhone. They are that good.

    Terrible Software

    The software is buggy and causes connectivity issues when listening on Mac or using with Find My iPhone. Software needs major improvements for these to be as simple to use as Apple claims. When listening with Mac, these drop audio often, then start playing each ear out of sync. Settings don't transfer from iPhone to Mac via iCloud as claimed. When playing a sound to locate the devices using find my iPhone, they don't play the sound when using iCloud.com, and have no option to stop the sound when using iPhone app. Apple needs to work on the quality of their products or they'll start losing customers - last several Apple products I've used have been progressively worse.

    Solid

    Great headphones. Sound quality is excellent for such small earpieces. Connectivity is simple as well. A 5 hour battery life is enough for me in my opinion. I don’t plan on ever listening to these long enough for them to die. However, if they do die, the AirPod case it comes with charges them without your case needing to be plugged into your outlet. My only warning is to be careful where you take these out to put them in your ear. They are a bit slippery when you’re taking them out of their case. I’ve noticed i don’t like taking them out near toilets or drains due to my fear of them slipping out of my grip and taking a swim. Overall these headphones are excellent and I’m sure will only get better and better with each and every model.

    Most convenient earbud available.

    The AirPods are not noise isolating in ear monitors. Some may call this a flaw, I call it a feature. I find them good when at airports, out for walks or riding the bike, they let me hear what's going on around me. They shouldn't even be compared to in-ear monitors. If you are looking for noise cancelling and booming bass go elsewhere. If you want convenience, hear it is.

    Even though the AirPods don't score high in most aspects they are the best all round ear bud available. Easy in and out of the ear with no wires. The audio may not be top notch, but they have good neutral sound with adequate bass for what they are. They are a perfect fit for my ear, I have never had one fall out. The ability to charge one while using the other is a bonus. They are just the right size, they are always in my pocket if I need them. I have better suited headphones when I get into airplanes needing noise cancelling or want to do some serious music listening, but I wouldn't expect it from the AirPods.

    Great so far

    Got them couple of days ago, and so far I’m having a great experience with them. The features are great, the build & quality is definitely a 5 star, like all apple products. The sound and bass is at a very decent level. Tho, I’d like to see in the future software updates a volume adjustment with a tap, so you don’t have to use your phone every time. Also, the lid of the case could be sturdier, not being worried of breaking it after couple of accidental tough openings.

    Steep Apple pricing makes "Wow" go to "Meh"

    I really wanted to like the Airpods but the price tag really made them kind of "Meh" overall. For the high $160 price tag, I just expected something more than the standard earpod experience just without wires. This product probably gets you closer to the "Wow!" level if you have an iPhone that got rid of the headphone jack. Because of the missing headphone jack, you will have fewer options for headphones, particularly when you want to charge your phone at the same time, so these will Airpods probably seem more like a Godsend in that case. Before I returned them, I was using them with an iPhone SE, which has both the Lightning port and the 3.5mm audio jack.

    Pros:
    (+) The sync and pairing is superb. Very seamless and simple.
    (+) Audio quality is okay for an earpod. They're much like the standard earbuds that come with the phone, which are pretty good quality for being free but Airpods are not free.
    (+) Convenient. They work fast and are handy for quick listening or phone calls on the fly. Perfect for those situations where I otherwise wouldn't bother untangling the headphones.
    (+) Battery life seems strong for both the pods themselves and the case. As someone with great charging discipline each night, I can't imagine I would've ever found myself out of battery with these.
    (+) Fit is more secure than you'd think, although not perfect. They stay put for the most part but don't necessarily feel very secure to me.

    Cons:
    (-) They are ugly. I could get over this if I liked them enough but, let's be honest: they look terrible and dumb
    (-) Audio wasn't very stable in any stressed environment. Lots of skipping on the street or in the gym. More than my $25 Tantronics headset. This is a serious drawback for me as I have very low patience for skipping. I would much rather deal with tangled wires than skipping.
    (-) Price! You just expect more than moderate convenience enhancements when you're pushing $200 for headphones
    (-) Mostly secure but they did fall out during some workouts

    In summary, if you've still got a headphone jack, use the included headphones or a $30 Amazon Bluetooth set to hold you over until a more mature design comes out: something with better audio quality, better form factor, and a more stable connection. These are worth about $100 in added convenience but not really a $160 upgrade, IMO.

    Pretty good!

    The connectivity to each iOS/watch OS device is pretty magical for this day in age for bluetooth pairing. This device is a certainly going to pave the wau for bluetooth enabled devices. I really like how well they fit into my ear. The mic is also a great feature as well. However the sound output quality isn't drastically different than the Earpods that are priced at $30. There is also a noticeable input lag while using apps like iMaschine. So musicians still need to trust a wired connection to eliminate all lag. At the end of the day, I got these headphones as a gift so Im not upset by any of this, I am able to just see the positives and shrug off the negatives. However I only say this because I did not fork over the $159(minus tax) to get this experience, so maybe the Earpod like sound output would be more dissapointing.

    Phenomenal

    Long time Apple user...Best Product since the launch of the IPhone. Highly recommend!

    Love them.

    I can’t say enough about how much I love these things. They are so Awesome & work flawlessly. I think Steve Jobs would be so proud of the team. To my surprise the AirPods actually fit & feel better in my ear then the wired ones that come in the box with the iPhone I carry them EVERYWHERE with me just be carful though about losing them yes you can do find my AirPods but nothing to the extent of like find my iPhone. Also be extremely careful
    if you put them in jeans or short pockets and you throw them in the washer then your Screwed. I haven’t done it nor hope I Never do. I did do It to a pair of wired headphones once though of course having these sweet things you’ll NEVER go back to wired ever again. Expensive yes. Are they worth it to me every penny. Design quality excellent. If you do consider them. You’ll love them. Might take some time getting use to but you’ll love them. Best of luck enjoy them to everyone else who has these and loves them as well.

    Best Earbuds I've tried in a long time.

    The airpods at first I thought were the worst idea and worst product created by Apple. But then I saw reviews and decided I wanted them. I got them as a Christmas present and absolutely loved them! This product makes me love Applw more as a company. They fit very well (but it depends by person) and if you have an iPhone they automatically connect to your Apple Watch. I had a problem with iMac connection but then it sort of worked. I would recommend these 100%!

    Awesome product - so handy and elegant. . only one major flaw (volume ctrl)

    The only thing missing in it for me is the ability to control volume. It's a real pain.
    Apart from that, it's pretty good.
    The sound quality is a little better (higher fidelity) than the EarPods though they look almost similar.

    Apple really gave a lot of thought into the user scenario and they've done a great job.
    Charging is a breeze and so is connecting esp. for the first time as well as with other (yes non Apple) devices.

    Switching constantly between devices messes up the setting in the main device (e.g. i use double tap Right to Play/Pause and double tap Left to skip)

    One particular way i found it useful is that both me and my spouse can listen to the same stuff by using on the two pods.

    No volume control?? Big missing feature

    I don't get why Apple didn't integrate volume control into the tap gestures. You really want me to have to ask siri in public just to change the volume? Unacceptable to not have basic features like this for how much these cost. They're great otherwise. Apple will blame it on their "courage". Yeah I guess you do have to be courageous to make such dumb decisions. I could also be courageous by trying to stop a car by standing in front of it. That doesn't mean I'm making a smart choice

    Amazing!

    The AirPods are the best wireless headphones you can get, especially for earbuds. The sound quality is incredible and very loud. I recommend this product to anyone looking for wireless headphones, it’s worth the extra money over cheap ones.

    Apple and its Best

    There's nothing disappointing about AirPods. The sound is as close to perfect as you'll find in bud headphones, wired or Bluetooth. Battery life is much longer than Apple claims. Design and fit and perfect. The entire experience is enjoyable. Well worth the money!

    Apple Airpods (Gen 1)

    Bought the $249 Bose SoundSport True Wireless Earbuds... returned. Bought the $179 Sony WX-1000 ear buds... returned. Today, I bought the Airpods and instantly realized Apple nailed it, both product and price. My only regret is not buying the Airpods in the first place to save myself some wasted time and effort. Good job Apple.

    Good for everything.

    I’ve had my AirPods for about 6 months now and I’ve never been happier with earbuds. I use these daily and for everything. I put these in first thing in the morning to listen to tunes on my iPhone and drive off to the gym where I do some light cardio to warm up and then lift weights. I can use these when I’m inclined or declined and they don’t move, I must be lucky that my ears fit these well. I charge them up while I shower and they’re back to 100% when I’m done. I put them back in when I resume my house hold duties, usually I use them on my iPad while I’m working around the house and watching shows or movies. These are great for driving with too because you have the option to use just one AirPod at a time and can use them to take calls and get navigation guidance through them too, which is nice when there are other people in the car and don’t want to hear the gps. I use my AirPods for hour at a time and i find I have to recharge them after 5 hours or so of use and the quick charge is awesome too, it only takes about 15 mins to get a decent charge for another 3 hours of use. I’ve actually fallen asleep with these in and woke up with them still in, my ear just work with these.

    I used to buy earbuds every few months because the product usually left something to be desired. That’s not the case with these. I am very happy with these!

    TIP* the tap feature on the AirPod itself is hit or miss however if you tap the back of your ear instead it works every time.
