  • 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.

      Great for everyday use

      I've used my Airpods for about 5 months now and I honestly couldn't be happier. I'm a fairly tall woman who likes to listen to music a lot, but I'm not a fan of I've used my Airpods for about 5 months now and I honestly couldn't be happier. I'm a fairly tall woman who likes to listen to music a lot, but I'm not a fan of over-the-ear headphones, so I've always struggled with the length of cords and getting tangled up. I wear these almost all-day, every-day as I work or walk around my college campus - sound quality and user interactions (especially with the Apple Watch) are absolutely fantastic! The only drawback I've noticed is that I occasionally have connectivity issues if I try to switch between my Macbook, iPad, and iPhone. It doesn't take too long to resolve, but it is mildly inconvenient. Overall, I think they're a win!

      They won’t stay put in the ears!

      I received my AirPods as a gift two years ago and I was excited to have them because I love listening to music and using my headphones. Although from the star I received my AirPods as a gift two years ago and I was excited to have them because I love listening to music and using my headphones. Although from the start, I realized they won’t stay in place if eating or chewing gum. But as of late, they won’t stay put at all! I don’t know if my ears are too big or too small but they literally keep falling out. The scary part is they’re very expensive but also easy to lose. If Apple can make changes to these, Like some type of strap or piece to keep the buds placed, it would be amazing. Considering they cost almost $200, I need earbuds I can trust to remain in my ears. I understand the chewing part although that would be ideal. Please consider making changes to these.

      How to locate

      So I purchased the AirPods hoping to correct the need for a converters for my iPhone 8plus, but it’s more of a hassle. The AirPods keep falling out my ear. I ha So I purchased the AirPods hoping to correct the need for a converters for my iPhone 8plus, but it’s more of a hassle. The AirPods keep falling out my ear. I have lost them on several occasions. The price tag does not allow me the option to say oh well I will just purchase another. The quality is wonderful and the no string is great. There just need to be a better way to locate them when they became me lost.
