  • 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.

      Airpods - I wasn’t sure however......

      I was reluctant to buy these however I am amazed how good they are. I’m not particularly comfortable with this style of ear headphone however I find them comfor I was reluctant to buy these however I am amazed how good they are. I’m not particularly comfortable with this style of ear headphone however I find them comfortable and I can wear them for hours with no discomfort whatsoever. I exercise with them on and they don’t move. I should have bought them sooner!

      Best earbuds ever except when they aren't...Inconsistency defines Airpods

      Okay I have bought 3 sets of airpods -2 for myself because my first set was stolen and 1 for my son as a gift. I love them -when they work. And that is the is Okay I have bought 3 sets of airpods -2 for myself because my first set was stolen and 1 for my son as a gift. I love them -when they work. And that is the issue - they are incredibly inconsistent. When you need them most they don't connect. Or they connect and then disconnect. The biggest issue with them is the inconsistent ability to connect to my phone. What should be a simple handshake just isn't and more often than not the handshake fails and the airpod doesn't connect. Or if you add the 2nd airpod just a little too late it never connects. This unfortunately is becoming the norm for Apple products - they are released when they are "good enough" which means inconsistency and a lack of quality - not so much in the hardware but the software. FInally the sound is exactly what you expect from Apple ear buds - lots of tinny sound, midrange is high, no base, and generally poor. But for phone calls they work great. I just don't use them to listen to music I use Bose earbuds.
