    I don’t hate them but they are just like the ear buds.

    My title being said, I do like the concept (love it actually) but come on Apple, one size doesn’t fit all. If you have issues with the ear buds that come with your phone you will not find these any better. They consistently fall out with any less than upright movement. Not great at the gym if you move much during your workouts. I seem to have the most issues with my right ear (same as with the ear buds).

    What’s right: The tech is solid. The syncing is decent the sound is excellent (if environment around you is loud then it’s not great) but all in all they sound good. The mics work well and I never have any complaints about people being able to hear me. They are cool. I do also own a pair of beats and they are better than them for day to day. Beats are now used for loud things and the gym.

    What’s wrong: The fitment is still horrible. Same as the other ear buds that come with your phone. Apple needs to come up with some form of adaptors that will adjust for the ear. We are not all the same 5’ 6” hipsters that Apple pictures us as. And our ears are all different. Also not sure why but they don’t always connect. They say they are but not always. It can be a pain. The software to link needs some work. Another challenge is the shortcuts for talking to Siri pausing etc need more options for customizing.

    I went two stars because of the fit. It’s still the worst for me. Maybe sell a few different sizes? I don’t know.

    When it works I love them

    I took a chance buying these as they were out of my price range. I was hoping to love them but I am experiencing dropped calls. Maybe yours will be better than mine. I am back to the ear pods where I do not have the dropped call issue.

    Can not connect

    I have a lot of issues with connecting in between devices such as from my laptop to my phone both are apple. Always having to go into my Bluetooth and reconnect them. I have never had issues with my Bose wireless headphones. These airpods not worth the money.

    Not effortless and not for all ears

    I’ve had these for about a year. Although I like the compact size and practical design with the rechargeable case, I have 2 big issues, first they do not always connect “effortlessly” as apple advertises, my wife gets upset at night because I have to fiddle with the buds and the case and make clicking sounds that wake her up to get them to connect to my ipad pro. Second, they fall out of my ears constantly, Apple needs to make different sizes! Not all ears are the same. I can only use them at home or in bed, never for any kind of activity because they don’t stay in.
    Bummer.

    Connection to iPhone cuts out randomly

    When I'm listening to music or on the phone (like a conference call for work) the AirPods randomly cut out and stop working. I have to pull them out of my ear, change the phone to speaker or phone, and then put them back in my ear. Really annoying. The supposed benefit is to not have to pull your phone out but yet I have to because it drops the connection so often.

    Works for the right ear

    Falls out of my ear when I run. Sound is weak unless I am somewhere with no surrounding noise. Good for business calls, other than that I bought the Bose ear buds and they are way better. I regret buying these, I seldom write a review but these bother me.

    Easy to lose

    I haven't even had these for a year yet and I misplaced them and now only have an empty case, and cannot locate them because they are "offline". I am so disappointed spent way too much money $180 for this to happen. I will not buy again. I hope I find them soon. it also had too much static. I'm so disappointed in this. I wish Apple would come up with a better solution to finding lost airpods, out of case and in case even when it is dead. ughh

    Think twice before purchasing...

    CONS: My right AirPod almost never connects seamlessly. I can always hear out of the left one, but I constantly (at least once or twice or day) have to completed disconnect and reconnect my AirPods with Bluetooth. This is annoying! Separately, the case collects a lot of dust both inside and out.

    PROS: The AirPods are comfortable and never fall out. The call quality is great.

    How to locate

    So I purchased the AirPods hoping to correct the need for a converters for my iPhone 8plus, but it’s more of a hassle. The AirPods keep falling out my ear. I have lost them on several occasions. The price tag does not allow me the option to say oh well I will just purchase another. The quality is wonderful and the no string is great. There just need to be a better way to locate them when they became me lost.

    Not worth it

    They were great and everything until I misplaced them and because they were in the charging case they are considered “offline” so I wasted $170. Wouldn’t recommend, they are small and easy to misplace. Just get some great value headphones and call it a day.

    Right pod died after 14 day return period

    I bought the AirPods in addition to iPhone X in mid May 2018. Asked the sales person if these pods were prone to falling out during workouts and was told “no.” Got them home, and to their credit, setup was a snap. Went for my first run with them, and as suspected, they quickly became loose and were prone to falling out of the ear unless pushed back in every few minutes. VERY ANNOYING! But sound quality was pretty decent, so I just got in the habit of pushing them back in every time they started to feel loose. Should have returned them then, but I just put up with them. Then, the right pod started disconnecting spontaneously, and by uninstalling from Bluetooth and reinstalling the AirPods both pods would work for a while, only for the right to drop again. I am past he 14 day return period, so will go back to my beats wireless earphones. Do not buy AirPods if you are athletic!

    Terrible sound! I won’t recommend buying them.

    The sound quality is terrible! You won’t be able to watch a movie in an airplane and hear everything properly. Even so in all other instances any some ambient noise.
    Try to return them: the apple store guy said: your expectations of this product are too high (!!??). My 60 euro JBL in ear headphones where much much better!
    Connectivity is the only positive and convenient thing.. but useless because it should be all about the sound quality!

    Easy to lose

    I absolutely loved my AirPods. They work amazingly and the quality is great, except the AirPods are so easy to lose and so is the case. I lost my AirPods in the case so I am unable to locate it within the find my iPhone app, and it would be cheaper to just buy a new pair even though there is a warranty on them. Apple should have made some sort of way to find the case too in case this happens because the headphones are very pricey and extremely easy to misplace and lose. I’m extremely extremely disappointed by how easy I lose these all the time. I normally always praise apple products but this product does not get my praise like the rest of the products do. I truly hope that Apple fixes this issue and includes a way to track not only the AirPods themselves but the case as well, and the AirPods in the case.

    Don’t work as advertised

    I reLky like my AirPods. However when I switch between devices I still have to search for them in settings. They pair quickly, but not automatically as advertised.

    Good product

    This is an exceptional product the only problem is that I lost mine and have no way of finding them. I really think Apple should work on that.

    Love concept hate exacution

    I have owned this product for less than a year and they have broken three times each times the main speaker breaks earwax gets them and if you try to clean them out they will break. The blue tooth is also awful and disconnectes constantly. The only positive is the concept that’s it.

    Great Idea but Horrible fit

    Works flawlessly but the fit cannot be customized at all. UNACCEPTABLE! The things fall out walking, eating or simply moving my head. Terrible implementation of fit. Potentially a fantastic product but the poor fit completely ruins its appeal to me.

    Love the sound and Hate to connect between my iPad and iPhone.

    I think they are a convenient headset that you could place in your pocket when you are not using them. They have great sound quality but you really can't use them in an airplane because they don't get loud enough. It was great to use one of them to talk on the phone and found that using just one while talking on the phone it started to die after about 1.5 hours but I could get my other ear piece and switched them without missing a beat.

    The one thing I hated about the headphone was when I exercise I like to use my iPad and watch a show but when I wanted to use my iPhone later on it wouldn't connect back to my iPhone. I would have to restart the phone to get it reconnected and sometimes that didn't work the first time. I could understand if I was still using my iPad but it was turned off and put away for hours and it still wouldn't connect to the iPhone. I use other bluetooth devices and never had a problem reconnecting to my phone. Apple advertises that is it magic how easy it is to interchange between apple devices and that is not a true statement at all.

    I am waiting for the next Generation of AirPods hoping they have fixed that problem and make them water proof. Then I will try them again but not before.
