“Apple AirPods have enough utility, smarts, sound quality and wearability to overcome what some see a potentially awkward design. Don’t worry about how they look — Apple’s AirPods are excellent earphones.”
“AirPods are meant for people who want to free themselves from a life of tangled wires and a physical tether to their phones. If you have the money to spend and want wireless earphones, these won’t disappoint.”
“The simplicity of connectivity, automated cross-device use via iCloud, and automatic stop/start controls based on whether one or both AirPods are in your ears is a glimpse into the future of wireless listening. In these regards Apple is setting the benchmark for a wire-free future.”
“With Apple kissing the standard headphone jack goodbye, it’s hoping people will buy these completely wireless earbuds instead. They’re elegant in some ways, with a simple pairing process and good voice-call quality. It’s too bad that Apple otherwise fell short in the sound department, and that you’re forced to talk to Siri to get just about everything done. Still, while this first attempt missed the mark, the concept has plenty of potential.”
“The ultra-lightweight Apple AirPods are fully wireless headphones that offer a reliable wireless connection, effortless pairing with Apple devices, decent sonics and good call quality. The included compact charging case quickly charges the buds. You can now control playback of your music with a double tap. Look past their offbeat design and you’ll find that Apple AirPods’ compact size and high convenience factor are a winning combination.”
