AirPods

Need some help? .
  • 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 incredible 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.

      More than what I expected

      I hate the corded Earpods that comes with the phone. They are uncomfortable, they feel like they are always going to fall out, and they do. And the sound isn't I hate the corded Earpods that comes with the phone. They are uncomfortable, they feel like they are always going to fall out, and they do. And the sound isn't the best. So I was afraid that the Airpods would be the exact same except wireless. Well I asked friends who have them and they gave positive feedback. One person told me to try them on at the store. I didn't know that was even possible. I drove an hour and a half to an Apple store since it was the only place that had them in stock. I don't understand how they feel more comfortable, they feel more secure, and on top of that, the sound is amazing. The bass is perfect. It's there, but not overpowering. Watching a movie or TV show is amazing because it sounds like you're at home or in the movie theater with surround sound. You can hear the stereo sound go from one ear to the other. The sound when listening to R&B music is perfect. I didn't want to spend $159 on earbuds, but after having them for about a week now, I am so happy that I bought them. They are one of the best investments I have made in a long time. I normally don't use headphones or earbuds much unless I am traveling or working out. I have no other need for them and usually toss them to the side until I need them the next time. With the Airpods, I bought accessories for them. And I take them with me everywhere I go. I also love that I can have one in while I'm at work, and they are very discreet.

      One of the best accessories I've ever purchased

Upon I've only had them for a day and love them so far! I was extremely skeptical about the AirPods as the EarPods fit my ear very poorly and keep falling out. Upon doing a ton of research, the wire on the EarPods were a possible cause so I decided to try the AirPods and worse case scenario if they don't work I can return them. I verified this with the Apple Store prior to my purchase. You have 14 days to return whether it's opened or sealed. I am glad I took a chance on them! They fit and stay way better than I ever thought. The pairing is extremely easy to my iPhone XS! The only reason I didn't give this a full 5 stars was the fact that there is no volume control on the AirPods themselves. I purchased these primarily to use to take calls. I know the Bose earpieces fit my ear well as I have a pair of wired soundsports and I considered the Bose sound sport free as they are completely wireless too; however, the mic on those are mediocre at best and you always sound muffled which is the reason why I went with AirPods as they have a mic on both the right and left and it is a very good mic thus far as feedback from people I've talked to have said that I come in loud and clear.

      terrible

      Any movement in the ear causes the phone call or music to cut out. Wearing a hat to keep the pods in place doesn't help much. Running or working out is out of Any movement in the ear causes the phone call or music to cut out. Wearing a hat to keep the pods in place doesn't help much. Running or working out is out of the question. If the phone rings and you try to connect the pods quickly there's a 50/50 chance they stay connected to the phone. Often they disconnect after a few seconds and you're talking to yourself. On several occasions these pods have nearly ended up skidding down the highway. As it is they're relatively useful if you're sitting at a desk and the pods stay in your ear the entire time.
