    Killed by earwax

    Today is 31/3/18 and my AirPods were delivered 28/7/17. The left is now dead. Right works perfectly. Since I am aware of the possibility of earwax seeping thought the fine screen used in in each pod, I made sure to clean them daily. Until today I would have written a 5 star review. Dear Apple, maybe some kind of 'pod sleeve' would increase the lifespan? I had hoped for three years on this expenditure. Having been an Apple fan since 1989 (my first computer was an original SE with the tiny footprint), I expected better.

    Love my wireless AirPods

    I love, love, love my new AirPods. I received them in the mail three days ago. They were more than 75% charged and ready to go when I opened the box and container. They paired right up with my iPhone 8, without any effort or trouble. I wore them for the rest of the day to go shopping, run errands and during a four mile hike. The sound is really, really good for music and audio quality on phone calls is equally good. Oh, they are very comfortable. I almost forget that the AirPods are in my ear. I almost didn't buy these after reading online reviews from others. I don't know who those people are, but I talked to a couple of friends who had the AirPods and were very pleased. I'm so glad I bought them.

    Honestly; a game changer

    I have had these airpods for a few months now and they still amaze me. I often workout with them (4-5 days a week) and they have never fallen out and go seriously loud. The sound quality better than the standard; more bass and better ranges. They have never run out of charge. They last about 8 hours without going into the case then get another 4/5 charges in the case.

    Worth every penny. And that’s a lot of pennies.

    The Future.

    I have been using them for almost a year - and in this time here is what I can say:

    - sound quality is next level and on par with wired Sennheiser Momentum earphones ( used on devices requiring wired such as my PS4 controller and Nintendo Switch that are incompatible with bluetooth audio )

    - wireless aspect in relation to what I am hearing has always blown my mind and it will blow yours too - I couldn't believe the sound quality was from a wireless bluetooth connection

    - quality in bass were only what I would call neutral | not enhanced or better but by no means terrible | think "capable"

    - the freedom from having no wires really grows on you in the first week, seriously - no need to constantly unplug/worry about wires being tangled or caught ( doorknob yanking it out is a thing of the past )

    - powerful signal and speed discoverability

    - and the most "huh" factor is the lightweight fitting they have | I have stopped noticing their presence while getting caught up with a work assignment or project | only "oh yeah I'm wearing these" is when you inevitably go to the bathroom and glance at the mirror

    - a small but very noticeable aspect is when you wear these, you seem to be noticed more - people subtly look up/take a glance - expect... "was that dude wearing AirPods just now??" followed by a double glance to make sure they weren't mistaking it ||

    One of many experiences --- huge wedding party - out of nowhere I hear a *click* followed with a bright flash. The wedding photographer caught me off guard while I was getting fruit from the salad area - singled me out instead of the other 50 or so guests at the food service line - followed by a wide smile as he expressed a nod at my ears - quickly remembering I had them on )

    - this is awesome for when you need GPS updates read to you while driving (it's basically "off" and on standby which enables you to hear perfectly fine - add the lightweight "air" aspect and you forget you even have anything on )

    There are CONS however - and they are:

    The Siri integration being the only choice is troublesome to change songs, volume, and messages. I find Siri very useful when asking about financial markets when looking up company tickers, getting notifications read, and quick weather forecasts. Yet the limited choice in music control without a device at all is something that could've been designed better - like a touch slider which would have efficiently help control volume while simultaneously implementing Siri, play and pause, and communicative function capabilities.

    IMPORTANT: luckily for me, the original wired apple EarPods were snug and never fell out on its own. I can shake my head like a madman and the AirPods don't budge - HOWEVER - if previous use of the original wired EarPods were met with frustration and loose fitting no matter what way you tried them - THESE AIRPODS WILL NOT FIT YOU. They are identical to the wired design.

    Probably the best sound experience until now. Crystal clear sound from the AirPods and really impressed by the sensor specially when the music pause when taking off the AirPods. Very efficient in charging and just love the long hours of playback time. Very compact size and also durable with a stunning glossy finish.

    Useful, simple but, sadly, drop out of my ears and no noise isolation.

    I would gladly give 5 stars to AirPods if not for:
    1) Ears just don't hold them tight enough, Apple should've thought on AirPods form and/or CASE-COMPATIBLE silicon tips.
    2) No passive noise isolation - when in mid to high-noise environment I can't understand onу word in voice podcast even using VoiceBoost in Overcast. Apple, consider that people plug their headphones in to listen to them, not to the world around in every detail.

    Amazing and insanely easy to setup and use

    Mine had about 80% charge on the battery. I opened in my car, then my iPhone connected immediately. Sound is not the same as over the ear Bose, wired headset, but sounds amazing given the size and functionality of the AirPods. They fit my ears perfectly, the battery lasts almost all day, and the sound is pretty good. I've had for a week and I'm very pleased.

    Can’t Make This Up

    I am one of those people that never write reviews, but I am compelled by the awesomeness of these magical ear pods. I was happy with these from day 1 - the quality, ease of use, and integration with all of my Apple devices as about what I would expect from the price. The quality is not that of the beats solo devices, but it is still really really good. So much so that my beats pretty much collect dust in my closet. But here is what drives me to write this: they stand up to the elements, and to life. Within two months, I washed the pods in their casing in my clothes washer, and dried them in the dryer. Still worked. About a month ago, I was shoveling snow and on of the pods fell out of my ears and into the snow. There was no hope of finding it before the melt. Well, that pod surfaced in my lawn today. I put it back in its case to charge. 30 minutes later I am listening to music on it (solo, just that one as a test) and taking calls as I write this review. I could not be happier. Thank you, Apple, for an amazing product.

    Totally disappointed

    For the money paid for these AirPods, it just isn’t worth it. They actually hold a charge for just a few hours. I emailed tech support and they still haven’t gotten back to me. I would definitely not use these AirPods again even if they would given to me.

    Worth the money

    I'd been debating for well over a year whether or not if I wanted to spend $160 on a set of Airpods. Had to get my car worked on this morning and was right near an Apple store and finally gave in and bought a pair. These are the best sounding headphones I've ever had. The volume is pretty loud too, The only drawback is, there aren't any volume controls on the headphones themselves. You have to either use Siri or use the volume button on your phone. I prefer the volume button on my phone. One of the main reasons why I was so hesitant to buy a pair was, the constant worry that they wouldn't fit. They fit perfect and they are comfortable. They're even more comfortable than the wired earpods. Even if you buy a set and they don't fit, you can return them and get a full refund. The fact that there isn't a volume control on the headphones is the only reason why I didn't give 5 stars.

    Easy to lose... and lose money.

    If the airpods are inside the case, Apple provides no way to locate them. You cannot have them make a noise and they're listed as 'offline' in Find my Iphone. I can't even get a last location to display. Kiss your $159 goodbye!

    Love but disappointed Audible App's sleep timer no longer works

    I love these wireless ear buds, so comfortable, excellent quality sound. I use them every night to listen to books when I go to sleep. Now I don’t have to worry about getting strangled while I’m sleeping. I’m so disappointed that two days ago the Audible iPhone app no longer lets me use the sleep timer with these earphones. Apple, please use your clout to expedite an update to fix this problem so I can enjoy this excellent product again.

    Apple Airpods Are a Must

    I’m a messy disorganized mess. I’ve lost countless items. I got the Apple Airpods for Christmas, and have used them everyday since then. The battery life is very good. I have never had the airpods die in the middle of a song. If you keep the charger with you, you will never run out of battery. If the airpods die they charge very fast, so you don’t have to wait too long before going back to your music or podcast. A feature that the apple airpods have is that they auto connect when they go in your ears, and auto disconnect when taken out of your ears. Another great problem the wireless airpods solve is the dreaded knots that your headphones have after taking them out of your pocket. But for airpods that’s a thing of the past. I don’t think I could ever go back to wired earbuds.

    Pretty cool-one CON!

    I got AirPods as a gift but I would never spend over $200 on wireless earphones. I absolutely love all the cool features: how the music pauses itself when you take one AirPod out and resumes when you put it back in, how you can customize the double tap feature and the battery life is amazing! They stay in your ear and are pretty comfortable. The ONLY CON is that if you're paying $200+, I expected them to be sound isolating/noise cancelling.. They are not. My volume is almost at 80% for me to enjoy the music without hearing other things (which I know can be damaging). At 50% volume, they are not loud enough for me. However, if sound isolation or noise cancelling isn't an issue for you, they are pretty cool. I still think they are overpriced tho.

    Never going wired again

    Okay I wear the pods daily for almost 8 hrs a day, I forget they r there and the audio is superior to the wired. I feel bad for people who have ears that don’t accommodate the pods.
