Love my Airpods!

I really love my AirPods. They’re a great size, are comfortable and work well for what I use them for. I regularly take phone calls on them, watch TV shows and listen to music and think the sound quality and volume is great.

They charge really quickly using the charging case and I love how if I can’t find them within my house I can use ‘Find My’ to play a sound and locate them.

So convenient and charge so fast

I love my Airpods, they are so convenient. They charge super quick, are very comfortable in the ear. They have great music and sound quality. I love that they still work with only one Airpod in as well. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

One thing that annoys me is that they sometimes disconnect from my laptop while I am using them. It rarely happens with my iPhone but happens with my Mac often. I restart my Mac and it stops happening.  Show details

most overrated piece of junk

So overrated. Expect it not to last more than 1-2 years after it breaks. battery life is horrible, way to expensive, 0 noise cancellation, multiple electronic issues from buds not working or not charging. waste of money

Rubbish noise cancellation, but otherwise good

Bass & sound quality is good. But often call sound quality is poor (when the same call is fine without headphones), and noise cancellation only works if a background sound is constant. Right now, I’m sitting next to my wife with my AirPods set to maximum noise cancellation while she watches a different show to me. I can hear every single word of the show she’s watching. Noise cancellation is great for constant noises like the oven while I’m baking, but 90% of noises aren’t so constant.
The “noise cancellation” function is frankly useless. Show details

randomly drop out despite removing all other blue tooth devices from my iPhone and having full battery

When they work they function well. No good when they do not work after a short period of time. Have never been wet or damaged. But work less often than they function. One ear pod drops out sometimes. Others both drop out. Sometimes after 5 minutes sometimes after 5 seconds. They’ve never been wet or damaged.  Show details

Just get something with better quality sound

I know there are many Apple simps out there that believe Apple is the BeSt CoMpAnY for this kind of product, you're just objectively wrong. The build quality is average at best and the sound is awful compared to other products that are a lot cheaper. Just do some research and find something better, thank you :p Show details

Sound is not good

When I’m actually listening to music I can hear it well but when I’m talking to somebody they say that my voice is very muffled which is the same as the other pair that I purchased Show details

Apple AirPod 1st Generation

I have purchased both 2nd and 3rd generations, one because I thought that I had lost one pair. I find that both of them are very poor sound when making a call, the receiver can not hear properly. I can not understand why both generations would be the same, it is very disappointing. Show details

Apple lied to me

Only four months old poor sound. Apple told me on a recorded call that even though I did not have Apple care they would send me a replacement pair by courier and I just needed to send the broken ones back to them. After 8 business days I rang them, they lied to me on the first call as they were not sending any replacement pair to me. Now have to wait for weeks more for repair which I have to organise and a month later. Apple stop lying to customers.  Show details

Use these everyday! Makes working out with music or podcasts so much easier and more comfortable

I was given these as a gift from my BF and they have honestly been the biggest game changer to my workouts! Usually I would struggle with the headphone cords when running or lifting weights but the fact these can just sit securely in my ears is amazinggg. I don’t even notice they’re there!  Show details

Keep perfectly still or they fall out

Sound and features are great! What a pity they fall out of my ears every 30sec (10sec if I’m running), ditto when my wife uses them. Make sure you have ears that meet Apple specs or you are out of luck. Show details

Overprice and after 2.5 years ended up in the landfill

Overprices buds and short shelf life. After 2.5 years my AirPods battery only last 20 min.

Forget about warranty, Apple won’t replace. However they charge more than a new one for a replacement under their care policy.

Better ended buying Jabra, that has a better battery and way better sound quality.  Show details

Typical apple product all show no go

Battery life abysmal. Non repairable and not even good for recycling.
Have tried all the ‘fixes’ to try to stop right one shutting down after a minute or so.
I won’t be replacing these with an apple product. Show details

It works perfect!

I was skeptical when I first saw the AirPods. It was looking awkward and was too expensive for my taste. Until I started hearing reviews from my friends! Everybody who owns it, gives 5 star! I had to try myself. I am glad I did it. I love it now. It is just a perfect product  Show details

AirPods

How can we live without our AirPods?
At times they do fall out of the ears, however they are comfortable wearing.
Surprised they are a little heavier than expected but at least I know I have them.
A great idea to have the storage case to charge. Show details

Can’t live without them

Love, love, love my AirPods and couldn’t live without them. I use my AirPods daily listening to podcasts, music and all my phone calls I have the freedom to continue doing tasks without having to hold the phone. The clarity and volume is very good and when walking they fit well I have covers for the pods which help keep them in place when doing vigorous exercise, I highly recommend Apple AirPods to anyone who leads an active busy life and needs to multi task. Show details

I use them a lot ,but

I listen to music and you tube with my headphones, I don’t really do any running or cycling with them in. The volume of the headphones is good, the wireless range is good if the way is clear, but in the house, walls can make the sound break up. I was cleaning the pool on the side one day with them in, playing my music and one fell in the pool, I got it out and it was fine, one has been in the washer too and survived! Show details

AirPods started heating up in the left ear

I’ve been using it for less than a year and recently about 2 weeks back, the left AirPod started heating up and it got hotter and hotter to the point that it’s very noticeable and very uncomfortable. Note that I only used for 10mins and the next moment I checked, the left side AirPods dropped 40%. Meaning the right AirPods was 95% & left is 52%. Called Apple and they are replacing a new one for me because it’s still under warranty. The sound is good and all but when I’m in a noisy train, I have to blast my music because I can hear the surrounding noise. When I am on a call, the other person on the call cannot hear me well. Show details

So good noise cancelling

I wear them for uni at campus. The library air con is loud as f and it cancels it out and focuses he music. Sometimes the headphones tune into conversations but it’s not that bad. I’ve had previous AirPods and this is the best one. Fits in the ear and stays put when exercising. Show details

Waste of money after 12 months defective and apple giving me run around

Left headphone no longer as loud have been to Apple store got told to ring helpline checked firmware updates ect jumped through all the hoops they then want to charge for a replacement when I could buy whole new set of another brand for less. Another blatant abuse of market power. I’m annoyed I even bothered replacing the one I lost and got nipped the first time. Can’t wait to convert my sales team from iPhones and iPads next upgrade bye bye Apple forever. Show details

And the case is much smaller than I thought, comparing to SONY WF1000XM3B.
It doesn't come with noise cancellation but sound quality is reasonable. Show details

Needs work

Sound is great, issue comes from practicality of using this for calls or changing devices. Either you return the pods to their case after each call or leave in your ears which can be uncomfortable. Picking the pods up from outside the case when a call rings in and answering from Pod or answer button most times confuses things and Bluetooth connection is lost. Changing devices is also a pain with manual re connection (believe a later OS will sort this under sharing). Show details

Awesome product!!!

Awesome noise cancellation system. for the size of the airpods the noise reduction is absolutely astonishing and blows my mind .. it sounds a lot better than previous airpods, the seal and noise cancellation defenitely helps with the quality of sound. They are so easy to setup and comfortable to wear, clear sound for both music and voice. Very happy Show details

Excellent performance and of great use!

I bought airpods 2nd gen with wired charging from Kogan marketplace. It has been of great quality, sound is good as well and you can use without having any wire around you. It definitely saves you the hassle of untangling the wired headphones every time you put it on.Battery life is reliable. I charge it once and keeps me going for a week or two as I don't use it continuously. I would definitely recommend. Show details

Best wireless earphones out there for iOS

There are various positive feedbacks for Apple's earphones on the Internet. I bought them for my wife as a gift on our anniversary date. My wife really loves them because of their fast connection, decent sound quality, really convenient, and great microphone quality. Show details

Pricey Airpods with amazing features

I normally use my Airpods to listen to music. It fits well and comfortable in my ear. The sound quality and volume is normal. Too bad that my Airpods does not come with noise cancellation. So, I can still hear the background noise when I am using it for musics. It connects straight away to my phone and the wireless range is just perfect for what I need. Show details

Not much difference compare to 1st gen

Bought the 2nd Gen Airpods to replace the 1st gen after two years of good service. I cannot tell any difference in terms of improvement in sound quality. Although, 2nd Gen seems to a bit loader and the battery last half an hour longer for me. I was expecting more. Show details
