  • 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.

      AirPods!

      I purchased these AirPods earlier today, and I must say, I can hear the difference in sound quality with these, and the wired earphones. These AirPods give off I purchased these AirPods earlier today, and I must say, I can hear the difference in sound quality with these, and the wired earphones. These AirPods give off great sound and the quality is amazing, also. There’s no static like there’d be with the wired earphones. For the price, these are definitely worth it. I love that they come with a charging base that isn’t sold separately. So, if I’m on the go, I can easily charge my AirPods, without having to worry about getting to a USB port to do so. I think the creators of these AirPods have outdone themselves. These are certainly great if you happen to yank the wired earphones out of your ears, constantly, like myself, or they get caught onto something.

      Never going back to wired!

My right is set for Siri with a double tap, and my I got my AirPods yesterday and am so impressed. The quality of the sound and the charging case are awesome. My right is set for Siri with a double tap, and my left is to pause / play. I noticed that the double tap to pause / play does not work with some of my programs, such as games. While on YouTube, the double tap would pause the video and sound, but double tapping did not start it back up, and I had to push play on the phone. That was OK with me because I was watching a video anyway. As for programs that aren't Apple, bringing up the Control Center or pushing the Home button would instantly pause the sounds, so knowing that, it's no big deal to me, as I'm looking at my screen anyway. I loved going downstairs to the kitchen and still being able to listen to the music playing on my iPhone that was upstairs. I did notice that when playing music on my Watch the controls are front and center automatically, but when I double tapped to pause the music, I waited too long and when I double tapped again, it didn't resume where I left off, but started playing different music from my iPhone. I pushed play on my Watch to resume the song was I was listening to. I generally bought these to play games without disturbing my husband while he watches tv or sleeps, to listen to music, and to make calls from my Watch. When making calls from my Watch, I couldn't hear the person I was talking to very well, but now it's perfect volume and clear, and I love it! They fit great in my ears and do not fall out, even when making a headbanging gesture. They are comfortable, and to me, they just look like earrings. I think they are worth the money and I recommend to anyone hating those wires that constantly get tangled, restrict how far away you can be from your iPhone, and pull the EarPods out of your ears to try these. I also love being able to keep my iPhone 7 charging while I watch videos. A big plus with me!
