I'm telling you right now, IF these worked like shown on paper, real price is easily $299, easily. Granted Apple I'm sure isn't making much but I'm telling you right now, these absolutely have issues that will be eventually creeping out.
I'm very impressed with them but I'm telling you now, the defects will be bearing their ugly heads soon, I already see the not so small issues.
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.
Forget about answering a phone call by putting an Airpod in your ear. They pair VERY slow and it won't work. This product is not ready for prime time.
Edit one-August 2017
The AirPods are getting so bad I deducted a star. I just had a phone call where the call was breaking up because the phone was in my pocket! Yes they are that bad. Also, sometimes it takes over 30 sec for them to pair. Yes you read that right. 30 sec.
AirPods are NOT ready for prime time. I wouldn't even call this product a beta-more line an alpha version. Wait until they work out the kinks. Don't know when that will be but for now that are borderline unusable.
Edit 2 - August 2017
Siri on the AirPods is horror show bad. What happened? I thought the mics on the AirPods were supposed to be super duper advanced. A lot of times it can't understand even simple commands. Also, very often you really have to bang the AirPods really hard to get Siri. Any guesses as to how annoying that is?
Edit 3 - August 2017
Supposedly pairing being so easy is a big selling point. I have put one in my ear and had to wait 15 sec while it made multiple attempts to pair. So much for THAT I guess.
Edit 4 - August 2017
Phone calls are horror show bad. The mics on these things may or may not be good, but people can BARELY hear me on phone calls. Sometimes they can. Sometimes not. Well, so much for using Airpods for phone calls.
I have a feeling the people who gave five stars did so because they didn't want to look like chumps for spending over $150 on something that barely works. Can't say I blame them - I feel cheated by Apple.
Edit 5 - OK it is official: the microphones on the AirPods are worse than bad. The slighest bit of background noise knocks out your ability to make phone calls. And Siri often either can’t hear you or understand you. These AirPods are for early adopters for whom the novelty of wireless separate speakers outweighs how well they work. I hope Apple wakes up and at least fixes the horrible abysmal speakers.
Edit 6 - This is the final entry. I lost the iPods. Of course there is no "Find my iPods" if they are in the case. One more thing to love about them I guess. What a relief. Back to using my LG Tone HBS-810. About 5000 times more convenient. Hey Apple, let me know when you have something that actually works.
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
