  • 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!

      Best pair of truly wireless earphones I have ever owned. These are simple to use, sound great, and are great for so many activities including: running, commute Best pair of truly wireless earphones I have ever owned. 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.

      AIr Pods - Great for Gym

      Was skeptical that would stay in my ears, but once that was confirmed, simply love the product. I purchased these mainly for the gym. Have gone through sever Was skeptical that would stay in my ears, but once that was confirmed, simply love the product. I purchased these mainly for the gym. Have gone through several workouts and the lack of any wires feels great. Sound quality is solid and pairing to my iphone is seamless. Only negative is would love the ability to change volume levels or skip a bad song by tapping the pods, and not having to actually speak to siri. Asking siri to raise or lower volume is less convenient than the cord.

      Aside from the air pods being on back order ( i waited about 5 weeks for mine). They are worth the wait. I am pleasantly suprised with how easy they are to sync Aside from the air pods being on back order ( i waited about 5 weeks for mine). They are worth the wait. I am pleasantly suprised with how easy they are to sync to your devices. My phone, Ipad, and watch. Battery life is pretty decent for wireless headphones. On average i spend about 2.5 hrs throughout the day either listening to a podcast or watching something on netflix.The charging case is really neat and comes in handy when your battery gets low. Very easy to check battery status from phone or ipad also. The sound quality is a little disappointing however when it comes to music. Don't get me wrong it sounds great, but on some other middle tier wireless devices and headphones you definitely get more of a bang in the sound. I would definitely recommend this product if you are looking to really expand your apple portfolio.

      I have read the one star reviews before making this review

      I love the sound quality! I have had about 8 different Bluetooth headsets Air Pods sound better than any of them. Mine have worked great from day one. I don' I love the sound quality! I have had about 8 different Bluetooth headsets Air Pods sound better than any of them. Mine have worked great from day one. I don't doubt that sometimes someone gets a dud but that doesn't appear to be the norm for these. I even left mine in my pocket and accidently washed them in the washing machine (low water level front loading machine) the pods were fine the charging case lost its charge and didn't want to charge back up. I put it in rice for 5 days I filled the pod cavities up with rice also it has been fine ever since. Mine stay in my ears just fine, I couldn't be happier. I suppose some people have different shaped ears since some have reported having trouble keeping them in. The thing I absolutely love the most is if you have the pair in and someone wants to talk to you, you can simply take one pod out and your music pauses. You put the pod back in and the music starts right back where you left off! Absolutely love them!!!!
