  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.
