Crappest product with great sound

My cheap earbuds died after 2 years of daily use so thought I would significantly upgrade. Bought the Gen 3 ones 2 weeks ago and have tried to persevere but can’t take anymore of them falling out. Even if they don’t fall out totally they shift as I move about and I am constantly repositioning. I’m so disappointed as I researched first and these were highly recommended in sound quality. And that is the only thing good about them. Even the case is hard not to drop as it is so impossible to grip the shiny curved surfaces. Do not buy this product, unless you intend to use them while you are sitting upright in a chair. Show details

AirPods are amazing

Ok to be honest they constantly fall out of my ears. Recommend adding onto the ear buds the extra thingies.

However yesterday I dropped one airpod off second level balcony. Couldn’t find it yesterday and it rained. Found it. Dried it out. Was not working.

Stuck it in recharge capsule and boom it works!!!

I really hate Apple and swore I would never buy from them again because of an issue with my MacBook Pro! But AirPods are water resistant not water proof, I accidentally dropped it and it’s working. So happy

If you do get them wet
Dry them out for several hours before recharge but I recommend them Show details

Absolutely crap falls out of ears

For the price of these you think they would be made to fit your ears properly there too big and at the slightest sweat they fall out of your ears
There absolute junk don’t waste your money there are better ones for cheaper or equal value
The worst of it is I can’t return them as I opened the package to try and due to return rules I can’t return them so I’m stuck with overpriced junk Show details

The worst apple product

Stopped charging after 4 weeks of me using them. *No damage. Worked in the evening and would not work the following day. Apple tech support not able to diagnose the issue. Show details

Great when they work

Constant crackling. Drops out and keeps reconnecting while charging. Click on forget this device and it will reconnect while I’m on the phone and not near my AirPods. Sent back for repairs 3 times and been in to the apple store and they claim nothing is wrong with them. Would not purchase again. My $25 Kmart ones are better and the battery in them lasts longer than the airpod pro Show details

The best headphones for your home

On Thursday 2nd June 2022 I bought this so I can listen to my favourite music before I go to bed every night without disturbing the neighbours by using these headphones since the sound quality is amazing. On Thursday 16th June 2022 I got a refund of $279 from Apple since there was a weight discrepancy that was concluded in the investigation. Show details

Daily use

Use these for call FT and normal for buisness and personal. Also listen to music drive in car as better on a call then if i were to use the cars Bluetooth. So easy to change volume just ask the volume up or down. I can be at one end of our 30m long house and still have my phone at the other end on charge and they work perfectly. Show details
