  • 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)

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.

      A must have

      Ive put some time in on these. Monday - Friday 8 hours a day listening to a mix of podcasts and music. If these were to ever fail, it would be an instant re-pur Ive put some time in on these. Monday - Friday 8 hours a day listening to a mix of podcasts and music. If these were to ever fail, it would be an instant re-purchase for me. The case fits perfect in that little pocket no one uses on your jeans, the batteries last long enough to get me to lunch, then I charge them while I eat, and the are ready to go for the 2ed half of the day. Perfect wireless earbuds. Love it

      Best Headphones Ever

      I was always skeptical about buying these, a bunch of my friends had them but I just thought they were over priced pieces of junk. I decided to buy them last Au I was always skeptical about buying these, a bunch of my friends had them but I just thought they were over priced pieces of junk. I decided to buy them last August and they have proved me wrong. The bass is unbelievable, the ear detection is a life saver. I would suggest to buy these 100%. If you love great headphones get these, they are worth it.

      SO Worth the Price

I had been w I have been a long time apple user, and I have always been happy with their products. Apple earbuds are the only ones that do not fall out my ears. I had been wanting to get Airpods for awhile, but I was unsure if I wanted to spend 160 dollars on wireless headphones if it really wasn't worth it. I eventually caved, and I'm so glad I did. These headphones have exceeded my expectations. The sound is clear, defined and crisp. The Airpods are very comfortable in my ears, and I have experienced no trouble with them falling out while at the gym, or using them at work. The charge is incredibly impressive on the headphones itself and the charging case. The case needs to be charged once for less than an hour about every week and a half. The double tap for Siri is a very helpful feature, since now that my headphones are wireless, I will leave my phone in a different room because the music goes with me. Even though my phone might not be at my grasp, I am still able to change my song, call a family member, or turn the volume on my music up. These headphones are expensive, but if you love music and are constantly on the go, these headphones are worth every penny.
