  • 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)

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.

I was skeptical that they might not stay on and fall down like the wired ones every 2 seconds (I might have awkward ears), but like I said I use them at the gym with constant move. Lightweight and awesome sound! You wouldn't know what was missing in your life until you own a pair of these.

      Disappointed...

      As someone with an iPhone X, MacBook Pro & iPad Pro, I love the concept... that being said... They worked great for me until I used them on multiple devices. As someone with an iPhone X, MacBook Pro & iPad Pro, I love the concept... that being said... They worked great for me until I used them on multiple devices. Now it's hit or miss if they will even connect to my phone when I take them out of the case. Sometimes they will, but many times, I open the case, hold near the phone, and the battery level display that should appear on the phone doesn't. I've tried "unpairing" them, and redoing the process to no avail... I've seen ads that say you can seamlessly switch from one device to another... in reality, you have to go to the next device, select Bluetooth settings, and click to connect the airpods. They also regularly behave as if I've taken them out of my ears... disconnect from my phone while wearing them. It just seems like Apple rushed to release a product that wasn't quite consumer ready yet.
