  • 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 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.

      Don't fit at all, not even close.

      Like all the hard-plastic Apple earbuds, they not only don't fit everyone, they are actually quite painful, even when in the ear so loose they constantly fall o Like all the hard-plastic Apple earbuds, they not only don't fit everyone, they are actually quite painful, even when in the ear so loose they constantly fall out. They clearly fit some people, but for many of us, they are not even a mediocre solution. My family has 4 active iPhones, numerous older versions, and some iPods lying around. When I discover even the wired earbuds in a drawer, I simply throw them out, all 4 of us hate them. It would be nice to be able to buy an iPhone minus the lousy earbuds, with a lower price since we have to buy others, anyway. I suppose the free, corded versions are how you know to never buy the BT version (if they don't fit, these won't, either).

      Very good work but bad systems

      I would like to say that apple did an unexceptional job on AirPods but still needs improvements on finding the charging case. I just lost my case, and there is I would like to say that apple did an unexceptional job on AirPods but still needs improvements on finding the charging case. I just lost my case, and there is nothing apple’s doing except sticking me with a bill of 70 bucks just for a charging case. I really didn’t like it. I hope apple understands me.

      Has potential

      I like how compact they are and how they automatically turn on once placed in the ears. I do not like that if I need to change the volume or sound I need to do I like how compact they are and how they automatically turn on once placed in the ears. I do not like that if I need to change the volume or sound I need to double tap the AirPod, wait for Siri, tell Siri what to do, then wait for the action. Or, just adjust/change from my phone. They fall out when I run or do push ups, so now I switch headphones If I'm running. I really hope Apple makes an update to include buttons on the AirPods to adjust volume ,change songs or answer a call. Siri takes too long. A sports version would be great! Overall, they're okay, I would say great if you just need them for conversations or listing to music where you have your phone on hand, because like I said, Siri takes too long.
