  • 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)

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.

I can be on a conference call for an hour and a half and then charge one ear bud at a time without interrupting my call. The recharge time is very fast, five minutes in the case and I am back in business for another hour. When I am out of the office the recharge in the storage case allows me to keep moving all day, without looking for a power outlet to recharge.

SO I PURCHASED MY AIRPODS JANUARY 2017 AND I WANTED TO WAIT A FULL YEAR BEFORE WRITING AN HONEST REVIEW. IN A YEAR THAT HAVE BEEN NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING!!! SO EASY TO CONNECT, SO EASY TO USE, SOUND QUALITY IS GREAT, WORKS WELL WITH MY APPLE WATCH, PHONE CALLS ARE VERY CLEAR AND THEY CHARGE AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT, WHEN THEY ARE AT 5% I POP THEM IN THE CHARGING CASE AND THEY ARE AT 100% CHARGED IN 5-10 MINUTES, IMPRESSIVE!!! I WILL AGREE THEY ARE NOT GOOD WHEN ON THE TREADMILL OR OTHER VIGOROUS ACTIVITIES AT THE GYM, SO I PURCHASED A CHEAP STRAP FROM AMAZON FOR $7 AND THAT HOLDS THEM LIKE THE STANDARD APPLE HEADPHONES WHEN I NEED THEM WORKING OUT, I CANNOT SPEAK IF THEY ARE WATERPROOF OR NOT I'VE NOT HAD AN ACCIDENT WITH WATER WITH THEM........ANOTHER GREAT PURCHASE FROM APPLE!!!
