  • 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 incredible 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)

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.

      Awesome!....but DO NOT LAST LONG

Described them as "Life Changing" Now after having them for only a year and half, cannot use them on a plane and normal phone calls are hard to hear. 6 months out of warranty and can replace them for $69.00 each ear!! The Apple store was nice enough to let me know there are new ones coming out and I can wait and buy those. Seems reasonable!

      Spontaneously stops working

Tried unconnecting and reconnecting but still no sound. It has become an absolutely frustrating chore to try and get them to work again and there is no reason why something as fundamentally simple as getting them to play sound should become a time consuming chore.

      Impressive technology

      I can't even begin to express my appreciation for this technology. Looked for earbuds similar to these for a few days on Amazon, all with mostly negative review I can't even begin to express my appreciation for this technology.
