  • Overview

    Wireless. Effortless. Magical.

    AirPods will forever change the way you use headphones. Whenever you pull your AirPods out of the charging case, they instantly turn on and connect to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac.(1) Audio automatically plays as soon as you put them in your ears and pauses when you take them out. To adjust the volume, change the song, make a call, or even get directions, just double-tap to activate Siri.

    Driven by the custom Apple W1 chip, AirPods use optical sensors and a motion accelerometer to detect when they’re in your ears. Whether you’re using both AirPods or just one, the W1 chip automatically routes the audio and engages the microphone. And when you’re on a call or talking to Siri, an additional accelerometer works with beamforming microphones to filter out background noise and focus on the sound of your voice. Because the ultralow-power W1 chip manages battery life so well, AirPods deliver an industry-leading 5 hours of listening time on one charge.(2) And they’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time.(3) Need a quick charge? Just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time.(4)

      Exceptional!

These are simple to use, sound great, and are great for so many activities including: running, commute to work on the train, listening to podcasts and music, and making your friends jealous. If you're on the fence (as I was) try them out and you will love them. One of the best products Apple has made, it follows the simplistic and high quality design this company is revered for. Great job, Apple!

      Nice! link once and voila works flawlessly every time.

      awesome sound. you can use in one ear at a time, when you are biking , walking around doing home stuff and still be cognizant of sounds and things around you. t awesome sound. you can use in one ear at a time, when you are biking , walking around doing home stuff and still be cognizant of sounds and things around you. the best feature is of course the bluetooth connectivity thats so simple. open the case and put them in your ears. no buttons to press, no shenanigans at all. drawbacks- no colors only white for now. water resistant- maybe maybe not. and if someway they can get rid of the longer microphone stick sticking out of the ears.

      Incredible.

      Although i have had my left AirPod killed out on me 2 months into use apple replaced it for free which i was very pleased about. The sound quality is absolutely Although i have had my left AirPod killed out on me 2 months into use apple replaced it for free which i was very pleased about. The sound quality is absolutely exceptional. The bass is insane and sounds awesome they are also very reasonable for the price. They will hold there value. Another thing i love is the charge that both the case and the individual AirPods hold. The pairing process was faster than anything i have ever done. the options you have with double tap functionality on both the left and right AirPods is pretty amazing as well. Overall its an amazing product for sure!

      AirPods always in my pocket!

      I love these more than I ever thought I would. I now carry them in my pocket everywhere I go and they are easy to pop in when I want to listen to a podcast, mus I love these more than I ever thought I would. I now carry them in my pocket everywhere I go and they are easy to pop in when I want to listen to a podcast, music, etc. I LOVE not needing to untangle cords!!! The sound is great. I also have the PowerBeats 3, which I like for running but I prefer the AirPods overall (I wish that the Powerbeats were more like the AirPods by not having a cord connecting them and using a lightening charging cable). My only complaint is I wish you could control the music by tapping on the AirPods, similar to how I can control music with the normal EarPods. Awesome Fathers Day gift courtesy of my sweet wife and kiddos!

      Inferior Product

They seem to not be able to fix the connectivity kinks in this product. When they released I switched as a long time Bose user, and I know where I'll be returning.
