    Alien ears have rights too!!!

    • Written by Ruben Q from Montclair

    I was so excited to buy my AirPods, the purchasing was easy along with the pick up.I grabbed them and connected them to my phone on the train with a breeze. Whoever is in charge of the connectivity and performance did a phenomenal job, let's not forget the looks and the functionality of this product as for any Apple product is always "on point".

    I wish I could give it 5 stars but on my way home I have had to adjust my AirPods so many times, until it slipped out of my ear and chipped less than an hour after paying for them. I guess I'm one of those "alien ears" I keep reading about. One size fits all is not working! It would be great if the case was made bigger to fit approved attachments to allow adapters to fit people with bigger ears. This would be a simple adjustment that would open the market to everyone at a low cost to Apple, I wish I can use my AirPods like everyone else.

    If you are thinking about buying them make sure to test with the earphones that come with your iPhone, if those don't fit you will not be happy with AirPods. :(

    Stylish design but poor fit and average sound quality

    • Written by Elias A from New Hyde Park

    This was my first Airpods purchase, and I desperately wanted to like these earbuds, but am instead somewhat disappointed. The good is that the Airpods are stylish and unique in design. They come in a small case which is extremely convenient. The wireless charging case is a welcome addition, as it avoids the need to find a lightning cable. However, wireless charging takes many hours and best done overnight. The Airpods pair seamlessly with my iPhone and iPad, and it's nifty that the music is paused once I remove an Airpod from my ears. However, I found the sound quality disappointing. The bass was excellent but the high frequency sounds were very muffled compared to the Beats X. I tried to adjust the treble via the EQ feature in Music settings, but to no avail. The Airpods fit my ears properly, but I found the hard plastic quite uncomfortable after only a short period of time. I hope the upcoming true wireless Powerbeats will address these shortcomings.

    Good but Disappointed in Apple

    • Written by Mitchell V from Metamora

    Connection to iPhone is awesome. Sound quality is solid. One size fits all approach is uncomfortable for me. Very disappointed I spent extra fornwireless charging expecting the Apple charging mat that would charge my phone, watch, and these. Very questionable leadership at Apple to wait until several days after AirPod launch to announce cancellation of AirPower.

    Unsure....

    I was excited to get the Airpods. It connected quickly and effortlessly! I have no problem of them staying on my ears. The Hey Siri works good, Siri had trouble understanding what I am saying some times though...The sound...humm...okay...It is not very clear, compare to a wired headphone..or was it normal to be not as clear as a headphone?? Also, on the right ear outside casing on the Airpod, I can see clear line on casing. does not seems to be a very tight enclosure. The left one is good. I was expecting great quality earphone. I am disappointed.
