    Bad battery after a year and a half

    • Written by Crispaul O from Spring Valley

    I purchased my AirPods in June 2017. Definitely love them and used them constantly. Today, November 2018, the AirPods battery can only hold 1 hour worth of charge while being used on calls or only 2 hours of use listening to music. I used to be able to able to get 5-7 hours doing a mixture of both. I've probably used it 70% of the time working M-F for the past year and a half so I think I got some miles out of them but the fact that it costs $50 a pod to replace the battery hardly makes economic sense. What this tells me is that I probably need to purchase a new pair of AirPods every year and a half just to satisfy my levels of usability.

    Love them but annoying

    • Written by Sal D from Arlington Heights

    Connectivity issues. Both need to be in my ears for them to connect. One in my ear won’t connect no matter what I do. Not worth $160 for under developed Bluetooth

    Love them but the Battery Life has me in my feelings

    • Written by April A from Bowie

    I love most things about these airpods. The sound. The fit.. the look!! Had them about a month. I notice a little querkiness with connecting at times. But Im surprised the battery dies out so fast. Compared to jabras and the old school ones that cost a fraction of the price. Come on Apple!! Look out for us that support your products. For the cost..I expected better

    These fall short

    • Written by Eric C from Pico Rivera

    Awesome charging case, great idea, comes with charging cable, but no charger. Of course people own charging portions that have USB ports, but really!? That’s cheap on apples end not to provide a charger. If you want to charge that, and your phone at the same time you can’t u less you have more than one charger. That’s not really thought out. I own every type of apple product: laptop, desktop, iPhone, Apple Watch, and now AirPods, and I was looking in the box like oh there is a cable, where is the charger?

    IF ONLY....

    • Written by Kimberly R from Charlotte

    I received my AirPods as a gift just 3 days ago. i was loving them. People could hear me clearly without all the background noise and i could hear them. I learned i didnt have to use both just one, leave the other one in he case. yep it was perfect and then not even 48 hours have misplaced the small case that has my other one AirPod inside. ...... OMG if only we could find the AirPods case this would be wonderful. I shouldn't have to buy another company finder to attach to my AirPods to locate an device. now have no more AirPods these things are too expensive and the replacement for a case and 1 ear bud is just as much as buying it all over again. so hopefully if they comet with a newer model this one will have a locator on the case and a clip so you can clip it onto something.

    Battery runs out fast

    • Written by Sergio S from LAS VEGAS

    They’re great headphones, no doubt about that. But the battery on the pods ran out faster over time.

    AirPods Connection Problem

    • Written by Vinz L from Fontana

    I recently purchased the AirPods on September 2nd,2018. It replaced my wired earphones into wireless. Without having any second thoughts, I purchased it. My fellow colleagues all had an AirPod of their own, so I said it’s worth the $170. A few weeks have gone by and they’re working exceptionally well. A month passes by and I start to notice a MAJOR issue, which is the connectivity. Once I leave my house and into my car, I pop an airbus into my ear only to have it playing from my phone. I try switching the settings to my right my AirPod so the sound will play from there, but unfortunately not luck. I scroll through my Bluetooth connection and try to connect it, but no luck. I am just slapped in the face with “make sure your Bluetooth connection is in range.” With frustration built up, I press, forget device and restart by IPhone and AirPods in hope of it working again. But sadly, it does not start working until the 3rd reset. I have had my fair share of this issue before.

    AirPods don't age very well.

    • Written by Zachery B from Tulare

    Don't get me wrong, these headphones work great for the first couple of months. The sound is amazing, and I love the fact that it's TRULY wireless. However, after about 6 months I would have days where I would have to completely reset my AirPods just to be able to pair it with my phone. 6 months later, the sound on the earbuds are not nearly as loud as they used to be. AirPods have potential, but in my opinion they are just not ready yet. Giving Apple the benefit of the doubt, MAYBE my pair just happened to be defective. But the thing is, many other people are experiencing the same issues. I will also note that some people are even experiencing that one of their AirPods just completely malfunction to the point where they've had to replace them. Take that for what it's worth. Buy at your own risk.

    On a whim (literally as I was walking down the street) - I ducked into a Sprint store (I'm not even a Sprint customer) to grab a pair of these. I have the Beats Solo (3) and of course the earbuds that come with apple devices. I was tired of the bulkiness of my Beats and tired of nearly strangling myself with the corded earbuds.

    The sounds isn't bad.
    The fit isn't the best.
    Battery life is just ok

    The value wasn't worth it. $169 could have gotten something a lot better.

    Great sound but the battery life def does not last 24 hrs under normal use.

    • Written by John T from Arlington

    These air pods were great and of course they are wireless and have great sound. Yes they are linked in iCloud sound you can track them.

    I would have to say the biggest con and disappointment was the battery life for the device. When then battery is dying, it will give you a warning in your ear. The Battery life can show in the widget icon of the iphone which is great. I think I’m gonna be returning these for a pair of beats headphone that I’ve heard has better battery life for what i use them for. I listen to five cds and talked on the phone for a hour and their dead to where I have to charge them.

    Convenient But Easy to Lose

    • Written by Jamie J from Papillion

    My whole family has(had) these and love them. But beware if you drop them the case tends to pop open and the pods will fly out and scatter. My son lost one of his in the lunchroom at school due to this. My husband lost his whole set. The good news is my son was able to get a replacement. Mine are still nice and clean and fully intact ;)

    AirPods are great except when using them with iOS devices

    • Written by David R from PLANO

    If you only use your AirPods to listen to music then you will be very happy with them. If you would also like to make and receive phone calls using AirPods you will be very disappointed. AirPods (and many other Bluetooth headsets) will randomly drop and sometimes reconnect when making phone calls. I have tried BT headsets from a variety of manufacturers including Apple, Plantronics, MPOW, Logitech, LG and a few more. They all have this problem which was introduced by Apple when iOS 9 came out. They have literally thousands of reports of this and have known about the problem for at least two years.

    AirPods work just fine on Android phones that we have tested on. So if you must have working AirPods just buy an Android phone and you will be happy. Or at least as happy as one can be with an Android phone.

    If not for this problem I would give the AirPods a solid five stars.

    Good earphones BUT,.............??????????

    • Written by Gorakh G from Guildford

    my wife and I bought 2 sets and both were happy initially with the sound quality and etc.
    But, they just dont fit in our ears and specially the left one hurts to your ears after you use it more than half and hour.

    we we a bit surprised when we both found out that the left earpiece hurts, first I thought its only me who has problem but when my wife mentioned it to me, I was laughing.

    Come on Apple I am sure you can do much better, something like Bose have 3 sets of silicon fits S,M,L.

    Hope you guys get serious about it and make something better.

    Replacement is expensive!

    • Written by Luize V from west lafayette

    I like the design, but I regret buying it in the first place because what initially cost 160$, after a couple of months already turned into 234$ (adding the replacement of one lost piece), which is a crazy cost for what the device actually is. The 'Find my airpods' feature is useless. It says it should show a record of the last location of the airpods, but does not work at all.

    Has potential

    • Written by Mylene A from Mesa

    I can't be the only person out there that experiences problems with the fit of the AirPods. I wish there were sizing options (like beats) for the AirPods. There are third-party ear grips that you can purchase, but I find them annoying because you have to remove them every time you want to place the pods back into their case. If there was a way to change the sizing of the AirPods, I would give them 5-stars. I love the design of the AirPods, but its ultra-sleekness aids the AirPods out of my ears.

    Apple airpods - should be able to adjust volume

    • Written by Yuto S from Burnaby

    I hope the next generation airpods will have an option to adjust the volume by sliding your finger up and down on either side of the airpods (or both). Unless I have my phone with me, I cannot adjust the volume. ex. when I want to hear someone talking while continuing to listing to music. Please make this happen for the next generation!

    Terrible Fit

    • Written by Robert T from Akron

    I'm a HUGE Apple fan. As with all things Apple, the Airpods are beautifully designed and work seamlessly with my iPhone. The features are good but there are two glaring issues... first is that they are very uncomfortable. The hard plastic shell is painful after about 20 minutes. The other glaring omission is the inability to control the volume without using the phone or activating Siri (there is also no way to mute a call without using the phone).

    Great sound, poor everything else!

    • Written by Robert R from Walterboro

    When I first got these I was impressed with the design technology. Unfortunately there are design flaws as well! First thing I noticed was the fit. They don’t. I even lost my first set because of it. Upon purchase of my second set I found one pod didn’t charge. Cleaning out the pods charging slot helped. Next I find that they do have trouble connecting to my phone. All other Bluetooth headsets I have owned paired immediately upon power up. Air Pods take longer. If a call is answered and then a headphone put in ear, it takes a good while for it to pair. Pros: Great sound, good battery, great charging, convenient to a point. Cons: Fit to ear could use a looking at and connectivity. Also, white is a bad color. Shies all dirt!

    Broke relatively fast

    They are very nice and good sound. But I have had them for only six months and the right AirPod broke and there is no more sound coming from it.

    Sound is great, but where do they go?

    • Written by Andrew W from Miami

    AirPods - typical of Apple products - have great design style and some good features, but some basic needs are missing.
    What if the volume is too loud/soft? Dig the iPhone out of your floppy gym pocket or in the bottom of your backpack.
    What if you want to take the AirPods out of your ears for a minute to order lunch? There is no place to put them except loose in your pocket or lose them on a table/counter. Oops - I lost one. Hang on... there it is.
    What about putting them in that cool snap case with the neat sync graphic... wait, where is it? Did it fall out of my pocket at the gym again? Ugh. (I put a dorky produce rubber band around the case so it isn't so slippery now.)
    Best feature? You can share music with one in your ear, and one in your friend's ear. Apparently, the on/off switch responds to the body's magnetic field or something nifty like that. Overall, I like them, but I prefer my wireless Powerbeats from Apple.
