    Game-Changing Truly Wireless Headphones

    |
    Posted .

    After using the AirPods for several hours a day for a month, there's a lot to like about Apple's first foray into truly wireless headphones. I used the AirPods just one bud at a time while listening to music/podcasts and for short phone calls in an office setting. ----- Pros: Bluetooth Connection: Due to Apple's W1 chip, the bluetooth connection is very strong, seemingly up to and beyond 30-50 feet. I was able to walk downstairs in a building and still maintain connection while my iPhone was still on the second floor. Also, the phone reception seems strong as whenever I was on the phone people generally heard me fine. Auto Stop: If you're listening to music and you remove one of the buds, whatever you're listening to will stop automatically due to sensors in the buds. I've used this feature countless times, especially whenenver someone starts a conversation with me while I'm listening to music while sitting at my desk. Now I just remove the buds(s) and I don't have to worry about fumbling around for the "pause" button either on my headphones or iPhone. Single Pod: I nearly always use the AirPods just one bud at a time, both in an effort to conserve battery life and to be more aware of my surroundings. This is a huge plus for me, since I'm used to the neckband-style headphones in which one of the buds was never used (and usually just dangled down the front of my shirt). Also a plus is that there's a microphone in both buds, rather than just a single one. Case: An underrated element of the AirPods is the thing that you don't actually put in your ears. It's the charging case. This thing will always be by your side, because once you take one of the buds out, there's nowhere to put it without risk of losing it. The buds magnetically lock into place in the case, so once they're in, they're not going anywhere, even with the case lid open. The case itself could feel a little sturdier as you'll almost want to buy a case for your case, but it's a great way to keep both pods and the charging system all in one little package that's barely larger than a pack of floss. Charging: Whenever you put the buds in the case, they'll automatically start changing. And these things charge fast. I placed one bud in the case once its battery life was down to 11% remaining and in exactly 10 mins it was already up to 77%. You do have to charge the case itself occasionally, but as long as you have the case around, the 5-hour battery life will never become an issue. Pairing: Thanks to Apple's W1 chip, these are the easiest bluetooth headphones to pair for iOS devices. For intial pairing, simply open the top of the charging case next to your iOS device, tap "connect" on the popup, and that's it. No messing around in the Settings section of your device, no holding a combination of buttons a certain number of seconds. And everytime after that, simply remove the bud(s) from the case, place it in your ear, and you'll be automatically connected. Convenience: This might be the AirPods' biggest pro. I'm not sure the convenience of a truly wireless experience and automatic pairing can be overstated. Being able to pop a single bud in your ear, have it connect automatically, and almost always have a full battery is like magic. Taking the headphones off and not having to turn them off/on is also a nice cherry on top. Fit/Comfort/Audio Quality: I have this listed as both a pro and a con. Simply put, these aren't the most comfortable or best-fitting set of headphones. The one-size-fits-all approach means these are going to fit similarly to the Apple Earbuds that come for free with every iPhone, and they're going to sound basically identical. However, I will say that despite what it looks like, these things aren't going to fall out of your ears (even if they may feel like it at times), and they sound good enough for being truly wireless. Ambient noise is inevitable since they aren't noise-cancelling and aren't shoved deep into the eardrum, but that's a personal plus for me. I also find the buds sometimes rubbing up against my beard, creating a bit of a popping noise, so I'll have to readjust when that happens. ----- Cons: Fit/Comfort/Audio Quality: See above. Price: These things aren't cheap. $160 for headphones that sound similar to the same pair that you received for free with your last iPhone? You're not really paying for premier sound quality as much as you're paying for the convenience factor. Lack of Physical Controls: There are no physical controls on the AirPods, so if you want to skip a track or change volume, you'll have to do on your actual iOS device. However, you can use the AirPods to play/pause or call up Siri, which brings me to.... The Double-Tap: This might be my biggest gripe with the AirPods - the double-tap should work while wearing an AirPod and giving it two sharp taps, which will either summon Siri or play/pause (depending on your settings). But it doesn't work for me a lot of the time and I resort to making these changes on my iPhone. I hope that the AirPods 2 or a software update either improves the double tap, or allows for some new gesture controls that make it easier to change volume, skip track, etc. Color: Yes, the white is Apple's bread-and-butter color, but it would have been nice to have a space gray/black option like the iPhone lineup. Fragility/Wax Buildup: Fragile might be the wrong word, but I live in fear of dropping an AirPod in the street, down a sewer grate, or anytime I get up and start walking around. Irrational perhaps, but the neckband headphones do provide a sense of security. I also find myself carrying around a microfiber cloth and cotton swab to clean off the AirPods whenever I take them off, since these things get ear wax on and in them just like the Earpods. ----- All in all, I've enjoyed the AirPods. The auto pairing, the convenience, the case, the sound quality, and the lack of wires all contribute to a great product. They could be better (physical controls, shorter stem, more color options, maybe $15-20 less expensive, a comply eartip version). If you're looking for something with similar features, but you want more bass, longer battery, then check out the BeatsX. I almost went with that option, but I really didn't want to deal with any more wires. I recommend these over neckband headphones, especially in a office setting. For truly wireless headphones, these are among the best in the market, especially if you already live in the Apple ecosystem.

    At first I was like am I going to spend $159 for some headphones? The answer is yes. I used my old corded apple earbuds all the time I had a pair for my car, my book bag, my workout bag, I left a pair everywhere. Well these new Air Pods have put them all to rest. Since getting the iPhone 7 I find it clunky trying to keep up with the adapter to listen to music or make calls on the corded headphones. The new AirPods obviously solves that problem by being wireless but I got an added benefit. The sound quality is top notch, the bass is louder, and there is no cord swinging in front of me or running down my shirt or coat into my pants pocket. When I travel on airplanes I'm not getting tangled in anything or when I put my coat and scarf on here in Michigan no cord to worry about to connect to my phone. The charging case is like a separate charger so when I'm not using the headphones I stick them back in the case so they stay charged up pretty good. If you're thinking about them just do it...

    Favorite headphone by far

    |
    Posted .

    I have gone through so many headphones and speakers just because I am never satisfied! And I have found the speaker and headphones I can recommend. First off these headphones DO NOT fall out of my ears, I unload trailers and load trucks and NOT once have they fallen! If you're scared of losing your headphones well you probably need to take care of your stuff better. Second, I absolutely love that the case charges them! They last about 4 1/2 hours on music playtime and I can charge them for 10-15 minutes on my break and be perfectly fine again! Which is excellent to me because no other headphones can do that for me! The case I probably charge once a week as well! I do recommend buying a little pouch case for your headphone case, I bought one off amazon just because I didn't want lint or anything getting the case or headphones dirty and it was worth it. I also love the instant connection to your phone it gives as soon as you open the case and it shows you the battery life as well. Also if you pull out a headphone the music automatically stops, so in case everyone's concerned about your earphone falling out lol.. Overall this is a great product! Especially for the price, like I said I have tried many brands. And I also loved my Powerbeats but when they recently started tearing I wasn't willing to spend $200+ on the new ones! I love no wires and and am truly satisfied with the product Only thing I didn't like was it doesn't come with a cleaning cloth lol And also wish they came in black! Other than that the sound is great and it's a great product!

    I LOVE THESE

    I love everything about these airpods!!! I've only used these for about two weeks from when I post this and they are perfect. No matter what I do they stay in my ears, and the sound is great compared to almost any other wireless earbud. I think the big kicker here is the accessibility of these. Unlike almost any other Bluetooth headphone, these things just connect, and start working immideaty when they go into your ear! Along side this, changing and battery life is awesome! I usually keep my airpods inside its case whenever I'm not using them. The charging is quick and simple, and they are back 100 percent in minutes. At the moment I've gone about 3 days without charging the case and after constant use, it's only gone down to 50%. The only cons that I can really say for these are 1. Sound quality (if you care for something that has more than just average wired earpod quality) 2. Popping (only in the sense that they pop ever so often only when starting and stopping the occasional YouTube video) and 3. The looks. My biggest problem with these were the looks. The white makes them show much than they already should, and the white gloss can collect a lot of scratches. I easily fixed this problem by just getting a black case and skin (photos below) and they look so much nicer and the airpods look almost half as small. To sum these up...totally worth 160 bucks!

    Air pods are amazing. The sound is crisp and clear. The mic on the AirPods is top notch. All of my calls so far have been excellent. I do have 2 issues though. 1. I wish there were a way to adjust your volume. 2. They are too big for my small ears. I purchased some ear clips on Amazon, and now I wear them constantly, and they never fall out.

    Finally bought these AirPods. Crazy thing is, my daughter convinced me to get these. I didn't want to shell out the money for a wireless earpiece but she kept on telling me that it's worth it. So I did. After purchasing these, I've decided to never go back to wired earpiece any more. This is just too convenient. I love the part where if I just need to use one pod when I need to make a call, there's build in mic on both. The charge however is a different story. For this tiny little thing, I listen to music for hours and it just never run out of juice. Seamless connection to my iPhone of course. There's nothing I can say about the user-friendly functionality of Apple products. You should buy this now, even if this is just the 1st generation. You will not regret it.

    I honestly didn't expect these to arrive to the end of January "6 weeks"! Thank you Best Buy for making my Christmas awesome one!!! Now for the product review, this is the best product I bought of 2016! I absolutely love the simplicity and "wire" freedom! These fit my ears perfectly just like apples wired earbuds but unlike them they don't come out of my ear because the wires are pulling them out of my ears! A word of warning if Apple's wired ear pods don't fit odds are these won't and if they do odds are they will fit! Only possible things I could nitpick about is I wish they had volume control on the air pod itself instead of having to do it manually on your phone or relying on Siri and I wish they came and colors that could match the phone finishing you chose. These would look so awesome in jet black! All in all there's definitely some improvements that can be made for generation two of these however generation one is still amazing! They are a little pricey but for me they are worth it!

    Best Workout Earbuds!!!

    Posted .

    I replaced my wireless Bose Soundsport earbuds with these Apple AirPods and really glad I did. I ordered ear adapters for these earbuds and they do not fall out at all. I tried to make them fall out and they stayed in place. Because they have no cords attaching them to one another the buds stay in place. I have ran multiple times and they stay in place, the longest run was over a 10K and I never had to re-adjust. They would be great for even High Intensity workouts.

    I do not love home without my airpods. Our pants are literally made for them, they have a pocket specifically for them (sorry ladies). But in all seriousness, it's a great product. I use them all the time and have put it through the ringer. Once I left them in my pants when they got put in the washer, another time I dropped the whole case in a field and it rained the whole day until i found them. If i had to nitpick, the battery doesn't last as long as it used to but it charges fairly quick and the convenience can't be beat.

    So Apple's headphone have been the only ones that fit me perfectly! They are by far the most comfortable airbuds I have ever tried or owned. Period. So i was skeptical about the wire free bluetooth stlye based off of potential loss but the took care of that aa well.....to a certain degree. They can track the charging box and not the individual airbud(s). Now I know that are not rated for water/moisture but I use them to workout and run and they still work! 1 side has kicked out before but there has not be any damage and I assume it is due to that bud not having full power. And did I mention I have/use Samsung?! Yes...it works with Android and there is an app in the Google Play store that works just like the native iOS on iPhone which would give you feedback on the charge level if the case and each bud! Love this product!

    Audio Experience Upgraded

    |
    Posted .

    An easy and convenient setup for Apple products that provides great audio with an exceptional battery life. This wholly describes the Apple AirPods. These lightweight dynamos along with the Apple Ecosystem experience provided makes these the primary choice for an Apple owner. The fit is similar to the EarPods, but stay in better without the cords connected. Charging is quick and easy with the included charge case. Music audio and call audio (and the mic for talking) are great. Watch video is great as well. So many great features is such a small package. Well worth the purchase.

    really good but pricey

    |
    Posted .

    Super easy to setup. Connects & switches in seconds between Apple devices w/o having to go to Bluetooth settings. Easy to check batteries' statuses (left, right, charging case). Great design. Comfortable to the point of not realizing they're in; much better than those neckband devices. Was concerned about them slipping out of my ears, but they never have (I haven't run with them) yet. Like EarPods, great highs & lows while still hearing what's going on around you. REALLY good battery life. Easy access to Siri via double tap. Find My iPhone app will even locate it if lost. Warning: NOT COMPATIBLE WITH iPOD NANO. (iPod Touch, yes.) No onboard volume control (via charging case buttons would've been nice); must raise/lower volume on Apple Watch, iOS device, or Mac. Siri can adjust volume too, I think, but I'd rather do it manually than have to speak. Bonus for those who listen to a lot of audiobooks, news, podcasts, spoken word in general, and other media which don't require 2-channel stereo: You can double your listening time by using one AirPod at a time. Safe to do while driving/cycling, plus you can place & take phone calls with ease. If you plan to buy this, do it via Best Buy and not Apple's website or Apple Store app. Whereas Apple ships in 6 weeks (at the time of this review), Best Buy ships in 8 days, and for the same price. tl;dr- Not very easily affordable, but I am overall very much pleased with this product.

    Outstanding Functionality & Convenience!

    |
    Posted .

    The Apple AirPods are brilliantly engineered & are unique in so many ways. Audio quality is excellent; tap on the AirPod to access Siri; no wires; insert either or both & you are connected accordingly. Self charge in the case with internal Li-Ion battery; noise cancellation works great! I can only identify one negative: The strong magnet built in the case that retains the 2) AirPods is so strong, it is very difficult for an individual with large fingers & thumb to grasp the super slick & curved AirPods to remove them! They keep sliding away from your fingers, occasionally lifting up 1/2 inch out of the case, only to be sucked back into the case by the over zealous magnet. There needs to be a release button that would push the AirPods away from the magnet about 1/4". This would make it much easier to lift them out of the case.

    My favorite headphones, but needed a lil' help.

    |
    Posted .

    If you liked the original Apple ear-pods, you'll love these. If you disliked them, you'll probably hate these. I could not keep the original EarPods in my ears to save my life. Any little motion of the head and they'd pop right out. These are the same. Heck, they're worse because if they aren't seated in your ears perfectly, the sensors stop playback. HOWEVER, there was a solution-EarBuddyz 2.0, Silicon EarPod/AirPod covers. Without them I would have given the AirPods a rating of 2 stars because the darn things simply would never stay in my ears. With them, my AirPods are secure enough for any activity. Sound quality of the AirPods is about the same as the EarPods as well. Possibly slightly better. And they are very easy to set up and use with an iPhone. I've had many Bluetooth headphones in the past, but the AirPods (ergonomics aside) are now my favorite.

    Why did I wait so long to buy these?!

    |
    Posted .

    I tried so hard to not buy these headphones, thinking that if I was going to pay $160, I wanted better sound quality than the normal EarPods the come with the iPhone in the box. However, I have been in the market for some wireless earbuds for a while. I don’t like beats headphones, have traditionally loved Bose headphones but their wireless earbuds are pretty bulky for wireless headphones. I do a lot of travel for work and I need them to be highly portable and easy for me to sleep on the plane with. The Bose SoundSport headphones just didn’t do it. Not to mention, it is $50 for their charging case alone AND i’d still need to tote around a micro-USB cable to charge the headphones or the case. The AirPods have made life super easy! The sound quality is essentially the same as the EarPods, which isn’t bad at all but can sometimes suffer in noisy areas as they don’t really do noise isolation very well unless you’re on the phone. It’s also mad convenient how the charging case comes with the headphones AND charges with a lightning cable, meaning no extra cable is needed and I can use them same cable as my phone! The entire experience with them has been so seamless and this is exactly why Apple is the powerhouse they are today. I try not to be an Apple FanBoy but c’mon, they make it so easy!

    Solid quality overall Best Bluetooth device

    Posted .

    I was a little skeptical about the AirPods because the EarPods aren’t the best so I originally went with beat X and I was rocking with those for a while until I ran into a friend with AirPods and started a debate on which was best. AirPods won hands down more Pros then Cons and sound quality was not compromised which was a big problem with the beat Xs the bass was absolutely absent call Quality was fine but listening to music was not a good experience but on the AIRPODS Everything works great no flaws distance Bluetooth strength is amazing so quality is amazing call quality is amazing and it’s truly wireless and they last all day for me with my use and when there low I pop them in the pod case and 5 10 mins later I’m Golden Best purchase get them now!!!!

    I got my first Bluetooth headphones 2 years ago with the Beats solo2 headset. As much as I liked them having the wire between the two could still be a pain at times depending on what you're doing. The new AirPods are phenomenal from the sound quality, ease of use and just the general quality. These are my new go to headphones, I love the fact I can just use one at a time if I want and the fact the case is a battery also so it charges them when you place them in the case. Worth every cent!
