    AirPods don't age very well.

    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.

    Meh...

    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.

    Pros:
    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.

    Cons:
    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

    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

    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,.............??????????

    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!

    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

    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

    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

    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!

    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?

    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.

    They’re okay

    I love the fit yes, however I don’t like the battery life is so short. After buying 3 sets of the wireless beats headphones and all 3 stopped working on the right side and not getting any help with them even though I only had two pairs for approximately 3-4 months and the last one only 2 months I was hesitating buying the apple AirPods but I did and they’re okay. Nothing special.

    They won’t stay put in the ears!

    I received my AirPods as a gift two years ago and I was excited to have them because I love listening to music and using my headphones. Although from the start, I realized they won’t stay in place if eating or chewing gum. But as of late, they won’t stay put at all! I don’t know if my ears are too big or too small but they literally keep falling out. The scary part is they’re very expensive but also easy to lose. If Apple can make changes to these, Like some type of strap or piece to keep the buds placed, it would be amazing. Considering they cost almost $200, I need earbuds I can trust to remain in my ears. I understand the chewing part although that would be ideal. Please consider making changes to these.

    Not Impressed

    Have been using these for about 8 months now. I am a recruiter and use them all day/every day while talking on the phone for 4+ hours a day. Heres my take on the Pro's and Cons:

    Pros:
    -Look great, very stylish
    -Battery life for talking is impressive
    -Recharge rate is great
    -Range is impressive for bluetooth
    -Durable (I've thrown them across my office out of frustration and they still work great)
    -A lot of in ear buds I have had in the past don't fit well, I have odd shaped ears apparently. These fit pretty well with the exception of running which can fall out if I'm not careful.

    Cons:
    -initial connection to answer calls can be pathetic- 30% of the time, when a call comes through and i open the case/put the headphones on, they don't connect. I have to put the headphones back and reopen the case up to 5 times to get it to connect. That shouldn't happen with $150+ headphones. I've tried repairing headphones and still have the same issue.
    -When I just have the left ear piece in (not both), initial connection is worse than 30% - I'd say 50%. I've read forms of people having similar issues.

    Would I buy them knowing all of this? No. If you want to look stylish for $150, yes. But I primarily use them at work- not as a fashion statement. At least 30% of the time, they are very unreliable which has lead me to toss them across my office out of frustration. I'm hoping the new edition headphones are going to be more reliable.

    Good but...

    I like my AirPods a lot, I use them often. I like how there’s no cord and I like the battery life on it. The only thing I don’t like is how uncomfortable they can get after a while of using them. And that’s how the standard headphones from Apple are too. Wish they’d come out with more comfortable ones.

    First time I've ever written this type

    I'm a 1 armed guy in a 2 armed world, I'm what you would call an extremely functioning amputee.
    Every once and awhile I'll come across a product that is designed with a 2 handed person in mind.
    If something is designed with a single hand use it's a far better design. A mother holding a child or walking a dog, average people find themselves in situations that they have 1 hand free.
    Earpods case is a 2 handed designed item. Lid wants to snap shut ,juggling with 1 hand while putting the buds in is challenging. Secondly the rounded bottom doesn't allow me to place the case on a table to then put the buds in.
    I'm a huge fan of Apple products and find it frustrated that you designed something that could be a better product.

    These are convenient until they’re not

    Being tall I always got tangled in the traditional iPhone headphones and found the cord too short, so was so into these. However, I find two problems here. One - they are agregiously expensive considering what they are. Two - If you happen to lose say an AirPod or a charging case be prepared to pay for it. At $69 each (that’s $207 for a whole replacement set) these mediocre yet convenient when convenient earbuds become quiet the expense.
