Sceptical about using bluetooth with the same simplicity of just plugging in a normal pair of headphones into the headphone jack. At least on an iphone and macbook, you get that simplicity. Sound quality, noise cancellation and clarity all took mt a bit by surprise at how good they are, then again look a the price. Using these with android is a bit less elegant; but they still work nonetheless. Sometimes i have to drop into the developer settings on my android device and disable ‘absolute volume’ to get the full volume out of the airpods. Worth buying though nonetheless.
Bought a few other similar much cheaper products and they all came up short on both battery and how long it took before they broke. This product however is exactly what i’ve come to expect from apple. Battery lasts as long as the claim and 15 mins back in the container gives me full morning or afternoons listening. Pairing has to be the easiest ever and once paired with my phone the airpods instantly worked with every apple product i own.
Apple Air Pods
- Amazingly easy to use, AirPods combine intelligent design with breakthrough technology and crystal-clear sound
- Get up to 5 hours of listening time on one charge. Or up to 3 hours with just a 15-minute charge in the charging case
- Made by Apple
I purchased for my husbands birthday and he loves them. I have owned a pair for a little over a year and wouldn’t be without them. Excellent sound quality and pair easily. I use for both music, books and for office phone calls. No complaints on sound quality. My only criticism would be i wish they were easier to clean. Not just from ear use but also the holder in your handbag picks up little bits which are extremely hard to remove.
After many times contemplating to purchase apple air pods due to the hefty price tag i finally decided to splash out in hope of purchasing a decent pair of bluetooth ear phones. After many attempts of trying cheaper wireless earphones i can say that these are defiantly worth every single penny. I’ve been using them for over 6 months with no problems sound and battery quality is faultless but the best thing about this product is how practical it is. To be able to go gym and even walk around with with no wires tangling or catching is the best feeling ever. For anyone who sees the price tag as a problem trust me it will be worth it.
Wow i’m so glad i decided to get the airpods they are amazing i kept putting it off reading reviews and waiting but then finally got a pair and they are excellent sound is better obviously than the normal apple ear phones they fit nice and as quite a few people have mentioned once they in you do forget they are actually in your ears i watch a lot of youtube on my phone and as with the music feature wen watching i take one pod out and the video stops this is an amazing feature i also go gym all the time and obviously talk to lot people so again this feature is brilliant and the pairing is so smooth.
Apple Air Pods : Brilliant product with a brilliant price tag however. Cannot be without these now for listening to music and answering calls when in the car. Sound quality is great and these are great for the gym. Downside is that they are easily lost if you don’t keep your eye on them but for the price it’s hard not to worry about where they are. Overall they are expensive but in my opinion worth it.
You can’t go wrong with airpods. Don’t let ear wax get on the mesh or they’re a real pain to clean. This is my second pair, and they just work – pair in a few seconds with your phones, and then can use them on any of your apple devices. They’re not noise-cancelling though, so sometimes need to be louder than i would like if i want to hear only my music and not what’s around.
Dropped car off for service today then mooched around bath for 6 hours constantly listening to podcasts and audiobooks. Got back to garage and checked charge on airpods – 16% left. Bunged ’em back in the charging case thinking that’d i’d have to wait quite a while for them to be charged. Bloody brilliantif you’re like me and are umming and ahhing about the expense – forget it – get them. Low rating on noise cancellation is a positive as far as i’m concerned – if i want to ‘audiophile it up’ i’d use wired over the ear cans. From an h&s pov – these are great for walking around town etc. Sound quality ain’t gonna match my monsters, but they are still pretty impressive for such little budslove the way they just connect as soon as you pop them in as well + they can pair with non apple products like my telly and stuffi know lots ov reviiwers have said it already, but if you’re undecided and if you’re ok with the fit and sound of the wired versions – just get them.
Even better than i anticipated. Having happily used cheaper alternatives with my iphone 7; i decided to match them. They do deliver, sound fantastic, pair immediately & all the adverts are actually true: connection is a breeze; siri is very responsive. I am so pleased with these that i have already recommended to friends- thank you.
I have to say these are an absolute game changer. For someone who loves listening to music at every given opportunity, these are small enough to carry everywhere and the sound quality is excellent. Having no tangled wires is a dream, and the battery life is insanely good, especially the fact that the case can charge them too makes them an essential purchase. They might seem expensive for what they are, but i assure you once you try them you will be instantly sold.
If the standard wired pods fit you then these will be no problem. Sound is good and pairing them is a breezethe small charging case is the prefect size to carry them anywhere with you.
Pros: excellent sound, cool and brilliant design, and progressive technology such as bluetooth, the main unit being a charger, etc. Cons: not great in noisy places. They cut out 1-2 times a day mid-song requiring i take them both out and put them back in and restart the song from phone. No volume control – need to use the phone for volume control. Don’t work well i’m busy places like paddington station.
I’ve purchased numerous bluetooth headphones before and as an apple customer, with other apple products, i wish i’d saved my money as these are effortless, they work seamlessly with my iphone, macbook, ipadthe quality of sound is excellent. And remember to view the various help files available online if you’re having issues. I did with calls and music, and it was reminded immediately.
Excellent, i cant live without these now.
There isn’t much to say here. Synced instantly, works without a glitch and sound is good (but not amazing). I’ve ran in them without them falling out, and i use them often in the gym.
Bought as a christmas present for my husband who works outdoors all day. He’s gone through that many sets of earphones but these have been a triumph. He’s so far not lost one, which was his big concern, they are very intuitive and work brilliantly. He loves them and would be lost without them as he uses them all week and they never let him down. He would highly recommend, i would too as they came quickly at a good price and were a perfect present.
I purchased my first pair of airpods almost two years ago and instantly fell in love with them. I used them for at-least one hour or more every single day since then. I really cannot express how good these are. But the batteries did die in mine after such heavy use, barely holding a 30 minute charge down from the original 5 hours. So i decided instead of paying apples quite high fee to replace the batteries in mine i’d just buy a new pair which is what i have done. I like this product so much i’m willing to overlook the relatively fast battery degradation and buy a second pair and i’m sure i’ll end up buying a third pair in a couple years from now too. If you’re on the fence about these just do it, they’re so worth it.
If you have apple gear this is the one for you. Seemless integration with apple watch, iphones and apple macallan computers. The ‘box’ they come in, can be set to charge while you are out and about using the air pods. It holds 24 hours of charge for your headphones. Replace them when you return and it will recharge them.
So comfortable, easy to set up and sound quality good. Traded in bose soundlink as i wanted something for a more active lifestyle. Lucky they fit me so this would be the only thing to be careful about , reassuringly expensive too but they are worth it.
I was skeptics about this product before, yes it may be slightly overpriced but my item is well worth it. The item is easy to get on with and pair from the off. Let me expand for you, the build quality is good and they are very functional. They connect seamlessly to apple devices and you can adjust the gesture on the left and right airpod to fit the function you want it to, be it skip or to pause a track. The gestures are very smart too, so you take one airpod out and the music will automatically pause, when you put the airpod back in, it will automatically carry on. When i am in the office i get around 5 hours?. When i run low in charge i simply stick it back into the small charging pod and 15 minutes later i can juice out another 3 hours from that quick charge. Not many other brands can boast the same rate. Noise cancellation and quality is not the best in the business but it does the job adequatelyyou can leave your phone pretty far away and the airpods will still function.
I resisted these for so long, but they have been awesome from day one. Trivial to move from iphone to ipad to macbookpro and back again. They just worki was worried they’d fall out of my ears, but the don’t, even when exercising. They recharge quickly and last for hours. Obviously, they don’t have noise cancelling, and they aren’t good at excluding outside noise, but they are good at what they do. You’re no longer tethered to your phone via a headphone chord while you move around.
Super comfortable and (surprisingly) stable fit (even when running). You hardly feel them once they’re in. Battery life is exceptional. Can use either mono or stereo.
