Airpods are truly wireless earbuds that connect your phone over Bluetooth and let you do things like listening to music making take phone calls or even talk to Siri. It looks clean and modern, Apple design to give them more space for a bigger battery and it also gets the microphones a little bit closer to your mouth.
The weird design almost doesn’t even matter if the Airpods don’t stay in your ears. We need to talk about that because you may have a lot of trouble to keeping Airpods in your ears while working, running or move around. Just in my opinions, the Airpods work best as for relaxing time.
Apple solves some of the biggest problems with truly wireless earbuds in the first place, thanks to the W1 chip that they built into the Airpods. It not only helps optimize the connection to your phone but it also makes pairing these really easy. That’s one of the biggest headaches with Bluetooth products no matter what they are.
Basically, once you pop open the case the first time you open up Airpods, your phone recognizes them, connects them for you and then you almost never need to pair them again. They just always connect every time you take them out of the case.
If you’re Apple fan who owns a lot of Apple devices, this is the kind of product that’s going to play really really well with all of them. Apples also building the W1 chip into some other products namely Beats headphones so that functionality is going to spread to other things in the future.
Now, if you’re an Android user you should know that these work really well on Android too. You’re going to get that same magic instant pairing that the W1 ship is really good and it offers a stronger more robust Bluetooth connection then basically any other wireless headset on the market.
The case is another thing that we really love about Airpods. It might look like a pack of dental floss but there’s a lot of really smart design in here. It not only gives you a place to store them, it also charges them. There’s an extra day’s worth of battery inside the case alone. It goes on top of the five hours of battery in the air pods.
There’s also some really smart stuff going on inside air pods themselves that help set them apart from Earpods. One is that there are accelerometers so that you can tap to interact with things like Siri. Another is that there are sensors on the inside of the earbuds. So that when you take them out of your ear it’ll stop the music you’re listening to and when you put them back in it will resume.
The Airpods actually sounds pretty good, they reproduce music really clearly there’s a lot of low-frequency sound which means bass and drums actually some good. All of this is really uncommon for really small earbuds and a little bit better than Earpods.
The battery life is usually a struggle for most wireless earbuds but it’s something you almost never worried about when using Airpods. It really give you the five hours of battery life that Apple’s advertising which is really more than enough for most situations. It also quick charge, just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time. And yes, Airports cost not cheap but all of that is great.
