Battery

Apple AirPods can run up to 5 hours. And the charging case can charge the AirPods up to 5+ times making it 24 hours+. Just by charging the AirPods for 15 minutes you will have 3 hours of run time for AirPods.

  1. Thanks for your review on Apple AirPods. These look really good. I think they would make a great Xmas gift for my nephew. He loves music and listens to this when he’s walking to school, so perhaps these are an easy option for him with out the cords tangling in his bag and getting broken. I have had some many issues with broken earphone cords myself where they fray at the connecters and then they no longer work properly or not at all. I like that fact that you can also use these on an android phone because not all kids have costly iphones. I also think they may work for school camps as some kids take their phones and that to listen to music at night and then it would disturb others. It awesome that they charge in only 15 mins. Can you recharge the AirPod charging station with any normal battery pack? I am very interested in this product it looks like its a good quality and useful item for Xmas Gifts.

  2. I love the fact that these earphones are not only wireless but have access to all the operations such as Siri, and has faster Bluetooth connectivity – this is essential, not o mention the elegant shape and design of these. I’m in need of some new headphones and ones that don’t slip out from my ears. And the battery life is perfect for me. I think what sold me is the light and compact design – just beautiful! 

  3. Hi,

    this product really seems functional. It is great that battery lasts so long and that it has fast Bluetooth connectivity. My sister already has iPad and iMac, I think she would love these also! I will show her the product. I think that price is ok, brend is probably included in that, but it seems it really has quality, and she is really satisfied with her Apple products. They obviously make good machines, they products are high rated.

    Thanks for the post,

  4. Hi Sujandar, Glad to see your review!  I had always wondered about the Apple AirPods and why they were so expensive.I’m currently using the wired apple ear pods and can see these have a lot of features over these.Are there any cheaper ones that are almost as good in terms of quality?OR do you recommend its worth paying more for these apple ones?Thank you!

    1. There are lots of cheaper options. But these ones worth paying this much. It makes your life easier. Trust me you will not be disappointed by getting the apple AirPods!

  5. I had no idea about these earphones. They look so convenient, Wow, i just have the old regular kind, having a wireless pair would be so awesome.So these are actually compatible with android devices? i am so glad to come across this review. With Christmas just around the corner this would make the best present ever. I can buy this directly from amazon right?

  6. Hi and thanks for this review. You have done a really good job of using nice clear visuals and explain the design details of this product. I know Apple are a premium high quality brand, but are there any alternatives that are cheaper to these that do a similar standard job that you can recommend? Thanks Kenny

  7. Wireless Apple Airpods earphones look very nifty and useful. I like that it knows to stop playing when you take the earphones out – how cool is that?

    Also good that Apple Airpods will also work with my Android device. I like that the call clarity is extra good by canceling out unwanted noises.

    Bluetooth is so universal now making connecting things like these Apple Airpods to various devices real easy.

    I like this technology, and it is great that the earphones will stay in place in my ears without falling out.

    Thank you for a thorough review of wireless Apple Airpods.

  8. These earphones really sound great.  I only own apple products, and I have been wanting to get wireless earphones.  The wired earphones can often times be annoying.  My arm sometimes accidentally tugs on the wire and then the earphone falls out, but with wireless that wouldn’t be an issue.  The battery life sounds great, a 15 minute charge that gives you 3 hours, that’s good.  I’m impressed, and might have to invest in these. Thanks for a great review.

  9. I always listen to music while I’m working out, doing chores, or laying in bed, but I tend to stay up very late and so I have to use earbuds to avoid waking up people. So these wireless Apple AirPods definitely seems like a great option for me.

    I’m glad to see that it works for Android as well since I have a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime phone. When I saw the price though I was quite disappointed, it’s not something I can afford right now, maybe I’ll save up for it though.

    1. Hi Kent thanks for your comment on Apple AirPods. Yes you are right it is expensive but I can promise you that the Apple AirPods worth paying that much. I hope you get it. 

  10. Being an early apple fan, I can only be amazed by these wireless earphones. Fully functional, great range, full product access with other features, speed, security and last but not least design. It comes with a price… but what do you get! 

    An incredible sound and accurancy that is unequaled! For me a 10 out of 10.

  11. The Apple Airpods looks like it’s a great pair of earphones except that it’s relatively expensive. I’m just wondering whether they work for Android phones. I don’t believe they do but just to confirm. That’s probably the biggest reason I’m not buying the Airpods. Are there good Bluetooth earphones that are compatible with Android phones?

    1. Thank you for your comment Kevin. I have used the Apple AirPods with my iPhone x and with my friend’s Samsung Galaxy S9. The only difference I saw was while connecting these AirPods. Other than that they work the same for both the Apple and Android devices.

  12. Thank you for this wonderful review,well detailed and easy to comprehend. I want to ask if it connects faster to android device the same way it connects with apple? I love the fact that it is wireless and also the battery life is really encouraging. Can it be shipped to anywhere in the world?

    1. Thank you for your comment Clement. It doesn’t connects as fast as it connects to an Apple device. If you click the link to Amazon, you will be able to find about the shipping information.

  13. I am a huge fan of this Apple AirPod. I think it is arguable one of the best wireless earpiece that is currently available. The battery’s life is amazing and also the charging span is pretty impressive. I mean charging it for just 15mins that can take you up to 3 hours of usage, that’s just amazing. Also I think it was pretty impressive that they were even able to add Siri into its features. I am pretty impressed with this and think Apple did a good job coming up with the Apple Airpod 

  14. Sujandar,

    Apple AirPods will be the wireless earphones that I will now be recommending to all the people I know that are in the market for a new set.  I know that I am going to be picking these up for myself as soon as I can they look great and now with your review, I know that they have a good sound to match.  I like that you can control them with Siri and voice command makes them even more convenient and hands-free.

    Thank you for the information,

    Susan

    1. Thank you for your comment Susan. These are really great and I’m glad to hear that you will be recommending other people to buy the Apple AirPods.

  15. These would be a great gift for my daughter. I personally do not use any kind of listening device like earphones. They give me tremendous headaches. 

    My daughter on the other hand loves her earbuds and can hardly make it through the day without them. 

    I am very curious about how these Apple Air Pods stay in the ear. That alone will make me end up buying her a pair.

    I was very happy to see that they will work with Androids as well, we love our Samsung S6s, so that is an important feature to me.

    thanks for such a great review on these wireless earbuds, I will be back!!

    Stacie

    1. Thank you so much for taking your time and commenting on this. Your daughter is going to love these Apple AirPods. So far they have never popped out of my ears. They stay pretty well in your ears 

  16. Thanks for this review.  This is the first time which I have heard about Apple AirPods.

    Good in-depth review of this product.  The wireless charging case is very impressive.  It’s good to know that the plugs stay in your ears even when moving around like exercising.  Also I like that the ear plugs are labeled right and left.

    I like the one tap set up as well.  Very interesting that it can be used with Android devices as well.  Also like that the battery lasts up to 5 hours.  Also having access using Siri is impressive.  Also like the fast charging feature.

    Thanks for this thorough review of this product which I just became aware of.

    1. Thank you for your comment Joseph Stasaitis. I’m surprised that this is the first time you are hearing about the Apple AirPods.

  17. Hi Sujandar,

    Wow! amazing post about apple airpods. I have always wanted to buy myself a pair. I like that they are very affordable. I am also happy to learn that this Apple AirPods can run up to 5 hours. I think that is great so I do not have to worry about continuous charging. I am interested in purchasing the product and I was wondering what is the warranty on this product. And how much is the weight of this airpods?

    Thank you so much

    Regards

    Pam

    1. Thank you for your comment Pam. You can get two years of warrant from Amazon for just $30.00. The weight of these Apple AirPod is 46 grams including the charging case.

  18. I’ve heard about this Airpods but I’ve never really known how good they were.

    Doing a little bit of research after your post, it seems that the Airpods are well-received after Apple has decided to make a change in the products that they usually ship with the iPhone line starting with the iPhone 8.

  19. Hey Sujandar,

    I just bought this Apple AirPod during Christmas and l love it very  much.

    This is a very stylish portable Bluetooth headset. The sound is very clear, smooth and vivid, and can be used for a long time before charging. I really like to use it whether at work, home or gym. I can even use them to answer my call. They stay in good shape and fit nicely into my ears. I really like the Bluetooth headset box. I just took them out of my ears and bounced back into place.

    l will definitely recommend it to my colleagues and friends.

    Best wishes 

  20. Thanks for the review of the wireless Apple AirPods! I’m completely excited at the fact that it fits anyone and will always stay on the ears intact even when one is jogging, running, doing exercise or doing any kind of activities that should have caused the earphones to drop from the ears. I don’t know the kind of technology behind this improvement.

    I’m much more excited about the 2-year warranty, the price which is affordable by anyone despite the improvements and quality, and every other awesome thing I read about it on your blog. Thanks for introducing this device! Kudos for the great work! Bookmarked your post for a reminder!

  21. Wow! I’ve seen sometimes Apple Air Pods but never known how much it can do! It seems that it substitute the normal earphones, adding the comfort of being without cables! It’s not clear for me how it works about Siri commands and what about phone calls. Does it have a microphone integrated? or do you have to stay close to the iPhone, in that case and speak into the phone microphone?

    1. Thank you for your comment Miche. It has Microphone integrated in the AirPods. You can just talk normally and your voice will be delivered crystal clear.

  22. Thank you for sharing with us this great review o apple airpods.It is great that battery lasts so long and that it has fast Bluetooth connectivity but I am not sure if I can afford this price because it seems expensive.

    I like apple products and I am using a smartphone from apple and it lasts that’s why I recommend this apple airpods for people who like listening to music in public to avoid disturbing others.

  23. This apple wireless air pods no doubt Is the best in the market as at now it ha some features that actually compels me to buy it the most beautiful thing about this airpod is it’s uniqueness from the rest with the siri function and automatic pause and play. In fact it is everything I ever wished for, is it available for shipping to anywhere? 

    1. Thank you for your comment Seun Afotanju. If you go through the link in my website, you can check out the available countries for shipping.

  24. I love that you can just connect and start.  All my other bluetooth devices are very tricky to start and frequently need to be tweaked- what a pain in the ass time waster. All the functions are so smart!  I live near roosters, motorbikes and a lot of noise that makes it hard to concentrate when I am working and hard to relax when I am not.  These earphones could provide something nice to listen to instead of the white noise of TV and a fan that I use do now and not require a load of adjusting that interferes with what I am doing.  Thanks for the review.

  25. i have seen these earphones that people wear. They look cool, being wireless and all.

    I wasn’t aware what they were before and I was amused of how the person wearing it looks- they look like robots, lol!

    I’m in my late 50’s and not used to these gadgets, I don’t usually use earphones, I prefer listening to music or videos without these, but reading your post, I learned that they are really cool and very useful.

    So, when I’ll buy one for my son, I will buy this.

  26. Hi Sujandar:

    This AirPods are really awesome with sound. You can use in one ear at a time, when you are biking , walking around doing home stuff and still be cognizant of sounds and things around you. The best feature is of course the bluetooth connectivity thats so simple. Just open the case and put them in your ears. Yeah no buttons to press, no shenanigans at all – I really like them. The only drawback is that there is no colours only white for now I think. Quick question for you Are they water resistant? 

    Thanks for the information friend,

    Anthony

    1. Thank you for your comment Tony. No, they are not water resistant but I have dropped it in the water one or more time and it had no issue. 

  27. Great product review. The airpods wireless earphone according to your description looks promising. I was wondering if it could also serve as sound amplifier since it is able to shot off other sounds during conversation. If it is able to do that, that will be cost effective to use instead of hearing aid for people whose hearing are impaired and unable to handle unwanted sound during conversation, this could help improve their hearing ability and save them money on hearing aid. Great insight, thanks for sharing.

  28. Now, this is finally the AirPod I was looking for.

    Good thing I waited buying so far. This is not expensive and does exactly what I need. No cables, quick charge, and 2 years warranty are better then I could wish.

    Oh, what a surprise, I think you missed something with your price, on Amazon, it says it costs near to $300 it’s in CND could you clarify?

  29. Thank you for writing this great review about this Apple AirPods.

    I been using apple products since the first iPod for how are to used, and when this AirPods came out i kinda no so sure to buy one, because I used earphones before and they just don’t stayed on my ear, but I choose to bought one because of the driving laws that we can talk when we drive so I decided to buy one and so far is been amazing this AirPods easy to used and most important it stays on my ear, now I use it when I work out, hiking, running or walking. I just hoping that the last longer change.

  30. Hello Sujandar,

    Thank you for this great review of the new wireless Apple Airpods. I had some apple earpods in the past that had the regular wires in them. They had awesome sound and didn’t require battery life. The down side was that when I went jogging on the treadmill or outside, they would slip out of my ear since the material gets slippery when you perspire. 

    I have not tried their wireless bluetooth version of the airpods, but I may check it out now. I currently use the original Beats by Dre, and the battery life is not that much better. The airpods 5 hour battery life is about the same. The main problem with the Beats bluetooth set is that one of the ear peices seems to go out every now and then. Do you know if the apple airpods have the same problem?

    I was always kind of hesitant to get the apple accessories because of the price, but this one seems pretty cost effective compared to the Beats by Dre. I like that it has Siri features as well, which is a great plus to have. I have an older version of the iphone and this might work better with my apple account. Thank you for the great tips and review. I will look into the product soon. 

    1. I really appreciate you for taking your time and commenting in this post. I have been using Apple AirPods for almost a year now and unless I touch it, it doesn’t seem to come out of my ears at all. So I think it will serve your need. 

  31. In many ways I am a traditionalist, a cans rather than buds, a black or white over colour kind of person. Despite of this the AirPods are strangely attractive to me. Having tried them I have to agree with your comments regarding fit, they are very snug and comfortable, even to me, and I hate things sticking in my ears.

    I agree that the sound reproduction is quite amazing, and I at least gain some comfort that Apple have gone back to their original white, white or white stand. 

    Where I have to disagree with you is in your findings regarding cross=platform compatibility, the pair I tested were absolutely terrible on Android.

    1. Thank you for your comment Adrian Holland. I’m really sorry that you had a bad experience while using it on an Android device but it usually works well with all the smartphone devices. 

  32. Hi I really like your article on Apple airpods. I have been looking to buy wireless earphones however I don’t use Apple devices, only Android. I don’t suppose Apple airpods work on any other devices?. If not are you able to recommend other true wireless earphones? 5 hr battery life is great!.

  33. Hi there, I own everything Apple and I have yet bought the Airpods. My commute from home to work is pretty long so this will be the perfect gadget that I can listen to the podcasts or audiobooks on my commute. I see that you listed the price for $29.99 is that right? I clicked on your link and it said some other price, is there a promo code that I need?  Are they available in the States? Thanks in advance 🙂

    1. Hi Nuttanee,

      The $29.99 is for the warranty. For $29.99 you can add two years of warranty. The price for the AirPods is different.. If you go through the link you can check if it is available in your country. 

  34. Hello SuJandar,This is a great informative review on the Airpods.  Im always driving, loading and unloading all the time in my line of work and i was contemplating to get one for myself.Bluetooth connectivity is great since i got iPad Air, Samsung Android bluetooth and can use this great wireless Airpods which is made by a reputable company.I will surely share this

  35. When it comes to brand names, we all know where Apple stays. I love the beautiful sleek design of the Apple Airpods! What really amazes me is that they are designed to stay in your ears even when you are jogging.Most of the time, I take off my earphone when I am involved in any activity that involves some form of movement such as bending down. This device seems to be breaking boundaries as it not only works with Apple devices but also with Android, really impressive. For a range of 33 feet, I think it is simply awesome. Now I understand why it has a rating of 9.9 out of 10. But why’s the product only in white? Does it have some form of anti-discoloration properties?

    1. Thank you for your comment. I know it is frustrating to see only one available color, I hope Apple brings out more color in future. 

      I don’t think they have any form of anti-discoloration properties.

  36. So, it’s like Google Talk on android that when you vocally say what you’re looking for, the device searches for you? Wow, I can’t help but wonder how this modern technology is making our lives easier, I am really amazed with this Siri functionality. Truly amazing! This is the one that I need, as my environment here requires for changing volume as the noise around the community fluctuates (I live in a noisy community). I always find myself here needing to adjust the volume, and with this Apple Airpods wireless bluetooth earphone, I can adjust while doing something on my computer.

    I’m curious… Can I use this wireless bluetooth earphone in an android device and not only in Apple Airpods? Will it work?

    1. Thank you for your comment Gomer. You are right the Siri function is really great. It is my favorite function in these earbuds. 

      They work with all the devices not just Apple. I had no issue using them with my Samsung S9.

  37. Hi,

    The fact that you can do so much with these earphones just goes to show how advanced technology is these days, I mean, you can operate your headphones using your voice. Now that’s some serious technology.  I also like the simple look of the earphones. They’re sleek and modern. I don’t own an iPhone, but if I did, I would probably get one because I like the headphones so much.

    Great review!
