  • 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 incredible 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.

      Way too early to market. Major problems

      I wanted to love these. In theory, they could be wonderful and innovative. In reality, they do not charge properly or display an accurate amount of charge left, I wanted to love these. In theory, they could be wonderful and innovative. In reality, they do not charge properly or display an accurate amount of charge left, they do not work consistently, one side is usually broken, and you’ll want to bookmark any pages showing how to reset them as that’s a usual occurrence. Really disappointing.

      I was very skeptical whether to purchase these apple AirPods or not.

They are a bit expensive but I have had them for about a week now and I am actually pretty satisfied. This product was typically made for apple users but it pairs with other devices as well. It was made for people who want to be cord free and free to use it with any device. There are pros and cons that come with this product just like any other product. Wireless connectivity: Apple has had great quality headphones in the past before these AirPods but sometimes the cord could cause problems. The AirPods eliminate that problem. Being able to not worry about the cord getting stuck somewhere or getting tangled up is a plus. The AirPods still connect with Siri voice command which is helpful when you can’t access your phone right away. Sound Quality and Features: The sound quality is very good. One thing that I found very impressive is that when you are playing music, if you take out one of the AirPods, your music stops. So instead of having to reach for your phone to pause the music, you can just take one of them out and it stops for you. To play the music again all you have to do is put it back in and it automatically begins to play again. Charging and the Size of the AIrPods: The AirPods need to be charged in order for them to work. Before these, we could just plug our headphones in and not worry about them needing to be charged. The AirPods also come with a chargeable case which charges the AirPods and in order for the case to charge the AirPods, the case needs to be charged as well. Also the case is small which can be easy to lose and if you lose the case it is hard to find them with the FindMyIphone app. The case is also white which can get dirty pretty fast. Overall this product is very useful and I like it a lot so far. I would rate this product 4.5/5 stars. It would be cool if they could make new colors for them but that is something to look for in the future.

      Love this Product!

      Hello everyone interested in buying Apple Airpods! To give you a little background, I purchased these headphones in August of 2018. I was looking for a pair Hello everyone interested in buying Apple Airpods! To give you a little background, I purchased these headphones in August of 2018. I was looking for a pair of headphones that I can wear while I exercise, or I can wear anywhere that I wish. I wear them on a daily basis and am a big fan of the product. When I received the product in the mail, I was very impressed with the packaging of the product. It came in a small white box, where inside it had the Airpods in their charging cube. The box also included instructions on how to set them up, and a charger so you can charge the Airpods. The headphones look exactly like they do on the website. They were clean, sleek and ready to be used. Setting the headphones up was incredibly easy, and probably took me a maximum of five minutes. Ideal User - The ideal user for the Apple Airpods is anyone who listens to music and is looking for a pair of headphones that are wireless. Also, these headphones are great for anyone that works out on the regular, as they are wireless and stay out of the way during your workout. Evaluation Criteria - Some things I looked into when purchasing the Airpods was their design, durability, and the ability to perform. After receiving the product, the design beat my expectations. They fit in the ear very well and I have never had a problem with them falling out of my ears. I also find them to be fairly fashionable, as I like the way they look as they are being worn. The Airpods are also very durable. I wear them when I workout and they are resistant to the sweat that could potentially damage them. Also, on a few occasions i have dropped my headphones on the ground, but they have withstood the impacts as I haven’t noticed any changes in the performance. The only issue I have come across is that the headphones are fairly easy to misplace because of how small they are. Even though it’s not a major issue, it may be something that can be inconvenience for some people. Overall, the Apple Airpods are worth the price of $144.98. The sound quality is great, they do the job that they are intended to do, and have so far exceeded my expectations. I hope what I have provided helps you in your purchasing process. Thanks for reading!
