  • 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.

      Very disappointing

      I am extremely disappointed in this product. These do not seamlessly transition from device to device. An Apple employee told me it worked like hand off. I work I am extremely disappointed in this product. These do not seamlessly transition from device to device. An Apple employee told me it worked like hand off. I work from my MacBook Pro, iPad Pro and iPhone all of the time, and speak on all three between Skype, a VOIP telephone, GoToMeeting and regular phone calls. I cannot be on a call on my MacBook and transition to my iPhone. These do not work as marketed, or as I was told in the store. More importantly, I cannot talk on any application from my MacBook. GoToMeeting does not even register the Air Pods. Skype is abysmal, and the VOIP is OK, but still not acceptable. These will be returned immediately. This is the first Apple product I am truly disappointed with. If these were marketed as headphones for audio playback only there would still be a huge market for these. Marketing them as much more than they actually are, and not properly acknowledging the microphone issue is really terrible business. If you want to only listen to music, and make the occasional call from iPhone, spend the money. If you think these are going to transition from device to device seamlessly, and you need to use the mic from your MacBook, do not purchase.

      Small ears

      I love the AirPods but I have really small ears and the first week I had them I lost one and have to purchase another one for $69!!!! So if you have small ears I love the AirPods but I have really small ears and the first week I had them I lost one and have to purchase another one for $69!!!! So if you have small ears I would suggest you not purchase these ear buds or you will be just as disappointed as I am. not sure how long it will take to arrive, hope not another 6 weeks.
