    A little plus to the original ones

    • Written by Charlie R from Waco

    AirPods are simply amazing. Didn’t think I’d use “hey Siri”, but now I don’t know how I lived without it on the originals. Range is a little better, battery is a little better, the wireless charging is a little better. All together this is a perfect product made a little better. Love it.

    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....

    • Written by Lisa C from Mtn House

    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.

    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. :(

    I love it!!

    • Written by Louis C from Hyattsville

    It’s a pretty solid product. This was my first pair of AirPods. Music gets nice & loud. One thing is the call audio isn’t as loud as I wanted it to be at max volume. Personally call is a little to low than I wanted it to be. Other than that, it’s great

    What’s not to like?? WOW!!

    • Written by Norman L from New York

    This second iteration of Apple Airpods is near perfect.

    >The retention of the the pods in my ears are perfect.
    >The comfort level after hours of use is beyond that of anything I’ve ever used.
    >The sound is natural and of very high quality.
    >’Hey Siri’ works like a charm and brings seamless convenience to a new level.
    >The H1 chips provides effortless pairings ‘on a dine’.
    >The battery life is outstanding - and tops up quickly.
    >The case is quite small with rounded corners - comfortable in hand and pocket.
    >Wireless charging adds to the overall ergonomics.
    >The ‘double tap’ for assigned functions work significantly better than in the originals.

    I have found nothing to complain about. Not the price or the eventual and natural degradation of quality through continued use - sort of like a car, computer, human body and everything else. OK - I have one complaint: Where the heck is the AirPower pad?? Huh??

    EXCELLENCE

    • Written by Don H from Woodhaven

    I hesitated on the first version of Air Pods. Read the Appleisnsider article and bought two pair Tuesday. One for the daughter. I'm not a Siri user at all. I gave up on double tap because is less reliable than home button on iOS devices BUT Siri is too good. I walk frequently so now I don't have to connect the wired ear phones and place the iPhone in the pocket but start the music in the house because I walk in the cold all winter. I don't have to worry about catching the wires when zipping up the coats. I no longer have to wish the song playing would skip to next because I'm not taking off the gloves and fiddling to pull out the iPhone in the dead of cold. Its actually comfortable at -11 degrees in lower Michigan. Now I make sure bluetooth is on first iPhone then remove air pods from charging case and place in the ear. They are comfortable. I get the coats and shoes on then walk out the door with the gloves being pulled on. Once on the porch I "Hey Siri, play Bob Seger and shuffle. Siri responds "playing Bob Seger and shuffle." Its too good. I can walk and focus on the walk and the music and if needed make a phone call using Siri and converse without doing anything but walking. Amazing, the iPhone is two layers down in the coats. I bought the wireless Air Pods although since I use the charger for my iPhone the Air pod 2 complete for the space so planning on getting another Samsung charger.

    Great Product

    • Written by Samuel D from Boise

    I had the 1st Gen AirPods and these are quite an upgrade! I have always loved AirPods, but these, these are really amazing! If you haven’t had AirPods before this product is great! If you already had AirPods the wireless charging feature is a very big upgrade from using the lightning port! I would definitely recommend this product!

    Excellent!

    • Written by Kyle K from San Francisco

    I had the original AirPods and I can say that the changes (which may seem minor) make a big difference in practice.
    The immediate connection between connected devices is awesome. Sound quality seems to have improved and max volume is definitely increased. A magical product!

    Vast improvement from Gen1

    • Written by Tristen B from Toronto

    These second gen airpods sound so much better than my previous first gen, they connect to my iphone and windows laptop so much faster than gen1. The volume is no comparison, gen2 by far. Battery life also appears to also have been improved, was listening for 30mins and battery only went down 2%!!! Though bluetooth distance appears the same, note that you will have to update to IOS 12.2 for full functionality. (Tried pairing with IOS 11.3 and hey siri wouldn't work)

    The main problem may be Bluetooth

    • Written by Peter B from Tallahassee

    Pluses:
    Solid bass and good sound, assuming the devices connect.

    Minuses:
    Often doesn't connect. The source device for sound shows that the sound is playing on the AirPods. And, the Bluetooth settings shows that the AirPods, and only the AirPods are connected, but the sound isn't coming through the AirPods.

    Occasionally, the sound will come through one of the earbuds, but not the other. The problem is usually resolved by shutting everything down and starting over, but the process is annoying.

    The earbuds sometimes fall out. This is a major problem when walking or jogging, but not applicable if one is sitting in a chair, or even standing without moving around much.

    Truly Incredible

    • Written by Anthony P from Vernon Hills

    AirPods are a life changing product. It makes your daily life so much easier. I run with them, work out in them, shop in them, sit on the airplane with them and ride the train with them. Almost everything! They never get in the way with anything you're doing. You feel like they are one within you. They are so simple to use and the new "Hey Siri" functionality comes in great when both of your hands are in use, as in working out or lifting. The battery life is great as well as the new wireless charging feature with the case. Just place them down and they begin to charge. I highly recommend AirPods to almost anyone that wants an Incredible wireless and easy experience with fantastic high-quality audio!

    I'm impressed

    • Written by AJ S from Smyrna

    I didn't have a set of the original AirPods but picked up set of the 2nd gens and am impressed. Pairing with iPhone is a breeze (once iOS is updated). Just open the case, put one or both in your ear, and listen to music/podcast/instagram videos, or make a phone call. Like most Apple products, they just work and work well.

    Truly Awesome Upgrade!

    • Written by Andrew R from EDINBURGH

    I have been using the original AirPods for the last couple of months and they sound very good, however this version sound truly unbelievable!, in that their audio definition is so good that I actually felt like there were real instruments playing for me live. Listening to a track with a slow bass drum beat I could actually hear the qualities of the synthetic material being struck, not only that, I had a piano inside my head! Somehow the upgraded bluetooth and H1 processor have made an already excellent sounding product completely disappear into a world of real music and sounds. I am not overstating this, these new AirPods sound great!

    My experience of "Hey Siri" has been a bit hit and miss however you can change the double tap behaviour to activate Sire just like the old AirPods did. I also find that I have to frequently adjust the AirPods in my slightly off-spec ears which I imagine a lot of people are equipped with: Apple should release a silicone or rough latex cover to help keep these AirPods secure in different designs of ears.

    The two flaws I've mentioned should bring the rating down to three stars, however because I've been so impressed by the sound quality I actually am struggling not to give them the full five stars.

    More Magical Than Ever

    • Written by Richard B from Newark

    I am extremely happy with my new AirPods, the wireless charging is great (please Apple release AirPower) the Hey Siri feature I am absolutely love, I had the case engraved and it looks amazing, also I don't think Apple have made any claims about this but I am 100% sure that these have even better sound quality than my original AirPods.
