  • 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 use these in the office, out and about, and surprisingly while running and olympic weightlifting. They have never fallen out, or given me any connectivity or battery issues. Super comfortable, and being cord free feels real cool. Highly recommend!

But I just had an experience that really proved how great they are. I accidentally left them in the pocket of my workout jacket, then they went into the washer....case and all. Then into the dryer as well. When I went to the dryer to figure out what was "clunking around", I realized it was my earbuds! I freaked out and thought they were toast for sure. Put them in rice immediately and they work great! I would highly recommend these to anyone who will listen!

      Won Me Over

      I had long resisted getting a pair, but when the weather got nice and I didn't want a bulky pair of corded Sony's on my head nor the tangle of the ear bugs, so I had long resisted getting a pair, but when the weather got nice and I didn't want a bulky pair of corded Sony's on my head nor the tangle of the ear bugs, so I got these. I love them and when taking calls I've asked how I sounds and they say it sounds really good on the other end. Super easy to a set up on multiple iPhone and devices. Wondering about them falling out? My left ear canal is apparently bigger than my right, which fits perfectly, so the left I have to reposition every now and then but I have gotten over the fear it'll fall out. Without the tug of a cord, gravity alone is enough to keep it sitting in your ear just fine, even if loose. I'll surely get a wireless over-the-ear pair to replace the corded Sony's but that's a bigger decision. AirPods was a decision a long time coming. Glad I did it.
