  • 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 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.

      Another innovative Apple product

      Have used these every night since purchasing. I originally purchased the Beats Solo headphones but returned them for these. Most versatile headphones ever owned Have used these every night since purchasing. I originally purchased the Beats Solo headphones but returned them for these. Most versatile headphones ever owned. While the AirPods don’t have the noise reduction of the on ear Beats, they are more comfortable and have comparable sound quality. I can lay on a pillow with no discomfort. The chargeable case is the most useful feature. I can charge the AirPods three to four times before recharging the case. The ease of pairing, charge status display and the connection tone when placing them in your ear are other examples of how Apple got these right. The ability to change the function of the tap feature in iOS 11 makes them perfect.

      Skeptical at first, but in love now...

      Several of my coworkers had raved about these AirPods. From the moment I first saw them, I though they were gimicky and a terrible idea... But my coworkers got Several of my coworkers had raved about these AirPods. From the moment I first saw them, I though they were gimicky and a terrible idea... But my coworkers got them one by one... I'll do the negatives first: I wish it would somehow be able to really seamlessly switch between my MacBook and the Phone and watch. However, I understand that there is an huge amount of tech packed into these and they're first generation... I also wish they came with a lightweight clip that i could run with, for example. Positives: They are single-handedly the most comfortable pair of headphones I've ever worn. I wear them for 8-12 hours a day. They get about the correct amount of advertised battery life and they take no time to charge to full. I will take them off, go back and grab them in like 10 mins and then I get another whole 5 hours of charge out of them. Running with them really surprised me. They definitely do not feel like they're going anyway. I've been running for 15-20 mins each time and they've stayed solid. Watch and Air Pod performance is fantastic. I get great call quality and clarity. I'm seriously buying these for my entire family. They're the single best bluetooth headphones I've ever owned. They're the most comfortable I've worn period. Tl;DR Thought they looked stupid, would fall out, and be terrible. They are not any of those things.

      Garbage

      I bought them and as excited as a school girl who got asked to prom - followed the instructions to pair and start using. No sound out of the right earphone. It' I bought them and as excited as a school girl who got asked to prom - followed the instructions to pair and start using. No sound out of the right earphone. It's paired correctly as the siri double tap works and when I take the headphone out the music stops but no sound. I tried a hard reset per the different boards with no luck. In short: Do not waste your money.
