My favorite part of using this AirPods is pairing them with my iPhone. Simply open up the magnetic case near your iPhone and watch as a spinning “connect” pop-up appears. After you’ve paired your AirPods with your phone once, flipping open the case near your phone will instantly pair them and show the battery life of both the case and the AirPods.
The ease of pairing - you never have to open the Bluetooth settings screen—make AirPods feel like the future. That the buds are “truly wireless” feels futuristic too, but in a slightly different way. As soon as you pop one into your ear, you hear a little sound effect, letting you know they’re working. And once both AirPods are in your ears, removing one will automatically pause the music you hear.
These types of design touches are classic Apple and definitely set AirPods ahead of other truly wireless earphones we’ve seen from companies such as Sol Republic and Samsung. And the sound quality—as I’ve said before—is shockingly good. Highs and mids are crisp, though there isn’t a ton of bass.
The buds’ battery life is solid, too. Apple promises five hours of battery life, which is exactly what I got. Of course, that’s way, way short of the 40 hours you get with the Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones - Black—but it’s very good considering how tiny the buds are. For comparison, Sol Republic Truly Wireless Amps Air, Gold/Black (SOL-EP1190GD) offer about 4 hours of battery life. The tiny case, which looks like a container of floss, doubles as a battery charger for the buds and offers another 24 hours of battery life.
I also have to give AirPods good marks when it comes to using them to talk on the phone. The person I talked to said I sounded better than I normally do, and this was despite it being windy and snowing.
Still, AirPods are far from perfect. Apple has really hyped up the fact that Siri is built into the buds. Double tap on the side of either bud to pull up Siri on your phone. From there, you can answer a call or ask questions. But this is also the only way you can control playback on your phone—unless you actually want to press pause, fast-forward, or skip on your screen. This takes far too long, especially if you want to raise or lower the volume if your AirPods.
You can actually set the double-tap gesture in Settings from invoking Siri to play/pause. That makes playback easier, but then you HAVE to use your phone to turn the volume up or down.
These are the best truly wireless earbuds I’ve used, but their limitations show the category still isn’t ready for prime time. And as much as I enjoy the instant pairing nature of the buds, I don’t know if I would replace these as my daily subway headphones over the Beats Solo 3s, which pair the same way, have 40-hour battery life, and let me actually turn the volume up on the side. If you prize size over everything else, AirPods are for you, but everyone else should wait for version 2.0.
- Extremely comfortable, probably the most comfortable wireless earphones I’ve ever worn.
- Charging the AirPods is super quick, taking just 15 minutes in the case for another 3 hours of juice.
"I CAN LIVE WITH THAT":
- They didn’t fall out of my ears, and I’d feel very safe using them on the treadmill, but I wouldn’t recommend using these for a full run outdoors.
- If regular EarPods don’t fit well in your ears, try these out in the store first because the design is basically the same.
I don't know what the angry reviewers were smoking. None of their grievances are necessarily true, and that's coming from someone generally skeptical of Bluetooth headphones. If anything I did not expect these to be an upgrade in sound quality from my Bose MIE2i buds, but they were.
Firstly, the sound quality - miles above and beyond the EarPods GIVEN that they fit in your ear, not just "slightly better". You have to be deaf to not appreciate the difference. The upgrade over the EarPods in sound quality is night-and-day - I'm really confused about why so many reviewers are disappointed by the sound (my suspicion is that they didn't fit them snugly enough?). Everyone who's tried mine has noted the same thing - they genuinely sound good. On top of that - given how difficult it has been to even get a pair of these, I don't understand why internet minions who clearly have never even tried a pair are already giving them bad marks. It's almost a DISADVANTAGE to Apple that they made them look like EarPods - because while they look like EarPods, they sound nothing like EarPods. I find them much more pleasant to listen to than even my Bose MIE2i buds, which I've cherished for years. I did all my listening just using Apple Music's 256kbps AAC files. For those audiophiles out there, I would say that the sound profile is "scooped" - the midrange is underrepresented, but otherwise they sound really surprisingly nice.
The low ends are punchier and tight, the highs are crisp, and the soundstage produced is nice and wide and easy to get lost in. In comparison, the old wired EarPods had a subdued low-end and airier highs. No, I don't get the level of detail in the highs I do from my $400 over-the-ears, but for casual-to-intermediate listening these are more than sufficient. In jazz the hi-hats and cymbals are finely detailed and ring as they should, and you can appreciate the subtle "twang" of a double bass, which I'd say the EarPods certainly did not deliver. In classical the sound is detailed enough to detect the wispy scratching of a bow gliding gently over the strings of a violin. You can relaxedly tell all the instruments apart in an orchestral piece. Pop music does well with a satisfying, thumping bass that doesn't distort much at high volumes and clear vocals. On top of all that - these get noticeably louder than the EarPods - definitely ear-damagingly loud if you so desire.
Obviously all of this holds true only if they actually fit snugly in your ear - if they don't, they'll sound worse and they'll fall out. I was glad I tried them out in-store before deciding on them.
I've heard a lot of people say "they look like Q-tips in your ear! They look so silly!" Perhaps I'm missing something but if they look just like EarPods and those had a long windy cable, why were the EarPods not "silly"? I also don't understand why "but you'll lose them!" is a reason to make fun of the product. Isn't the future necessarily predictive of a world in which we are fully wireless? Do people not buy smartphones because they're afraid they'll lose them? Sure, at one point. We get used to our wireless products and we adapt to not losing them. Furthermore, many of the the comparisons people make to the AirPods don't even make sense - like the Bose bluetooth earbuds (which I actually think sound notably worse), which also aren't even fully wireless earbuds. There are so few, true AirPod alternatives on the market in there are truly no wires at all between earbuds; admittedly I have not tried them, but I haven't heard the best marks about those either. I considered of course the Earins (connectivity issues apparently?) and the Samsung Gear IconX (shorter battery life), but even those aren't the same category of buds because of their in-ear-canal design, whereas the AirPods resemble more classic earbuds. I personally detest the in-ear-canal feeling of squishing into my ears (I perceive the soundstage produced to be much narrower and literally inside my head), but I realize this is PURELY personal preference.
The AirPods have great battery life, and the charging is so fast I just stop listening to them to use the restroom, make a cup of coffee, come back, and they're ready to go again for hours. I have yet to exhaust their full 4-5 hour run in one sitting. The pairing was ridiculously easy and fun to do, and the transitioning between iCloud-linked devices is seamlessly albeit still laggy (fingers crossed for an update).
Try the AirPods before hating on them. It's an easy time to hate on Apple - the removal of headphone jacks from the iPhone, the death of MagSafe chargers, a world full of dongles, etc. Just know that if you join the hate bandwagon you'll be missing out on some genuinely good audio and handy wireless technology. These are not just EarPods with the cables cut.
Be warned - you WILL lose these! There is a way to track these with Find My iPhone App but it never works when I need it. If they are in their chaging case you cannot track them or send a sound to playback and locate them. It only works when they are out of the case and with a charge. When I washed mine they had died and I couldn’t locate them in my pocket :( Luckily, they seem to be waterproof
