  • 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.

      Good Enough

And it’s £69 to replace it. Unlike the actual ear pieces themselves, you can relocate them via the Find My Phone App. The charging case, which is an essential part of the product, can not be located at all. When I spoke to a representative, the only reply I got was “buy a new one.” No other method is available, which is pretty poor standards for a £160 piece of machinery from Apple. It really, really takes away the security of owning an Apple product.

      Disappointing, buy a pair 5 year old pair of Plantronics Backbeat Fit

      Basically what shown in the ads does not work, sound quality is OK not great, get ready to have to connect through settings every time you want to use them and Basically what shown in the ads does not work, sound quality is OK not great, get ready to have to connect through settings every time you want to use them and only 1 connecting is common for me. Tried support but no luck there either. I'm comparing these to a 5 year old pair of Plantronics Backbeat Fit and those are vastly superior in every area, better sound, easier connectivity only charge once a week for around 10 hours usage. I think I've just sold myself on another pair, thanks Apple!

      Almost perfect

      They are amazing. They work well, the connection is perfect, also the box is small and you can take them anywhere. If I lose them I can find them easily. The o They are amazing. They work well, the connection is perfect, also the box is small and you can take them anywhere. If I lose them I can find them easily. The only complaint I have is that the only thing you can locate are the AirPods, but if you lose the box you have to buy a new one, because the Find My iPhone app only locates the AirPods not the box. So it will be amazing if the box had Bluetooth or a location activated. I just lost the fffffing box and it costs like 100€.
