I'll be honest I had tried a couple of cheaper wireless products but they were uncomfortable wear and not brilliant sound quality for me.
I like my apple wired headsets, which were comfortable, but as it's mostly for meditating in bed I was at serious risk of strangling myself after waking up a few times with wires ones wrapped around my neck (hence trying the cheaper wireless ones).
The AirPods really are perfect for me. The size is great for my small ears, they block out background noise - even my friends husband who is the loudest snorer I've ever heard despite being on two diff floors when I stayed over New Year!
My expertise the battery life is great. However, have fallen asleep a few times with them in and there is quite a loud beep when it runs out of power which jolts me awake but that is ‘user error' because I'm falling asleep with them in.
Used them on a long train journey today, great performance and reduction of background noise.
Don't waste money on cheap imitations, save up and get these.
It's a shame actually got these as a gift for my mum now when purchased it was under someone else's name also for some reason it kept disconnecting left AirPod headphone didn't work at all the battery life is questionable what's strange is someone else bought it new and everything is fine so I'm guessing it's like a lucky dip bag either get new ones or be screwed and get second hand ones after paying that much you would expect better !!!!
There have been lots of reviews done on the Apple AirPods that come with a wireless charging case. I therefore will make my review short and sweet.
THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMENT made by my daughter: “I love them! They are the very best! I know they are expensive! Thank you very much”.
The AirPods came fairly quickly and although it took my daughter and I about an hour or two to work out what to do (!), we were impressed by
a) The Quality of the materials used
b) How easy it was to pair with an iPhone or iPad - it just appeared to automatically discover and PAIR with my daughter's iPhone 6s!
c) How quickly it was for the air pods to be FULLY CHARGED- just under two hours and they seem to retain their charge well
d) You can use either one or both AirPods at once: Using Just one at a time makes the charge on the AirPod last TWICE AS MUCH. Nice!
e) Just like with an iPhone, you can turn on “Find my AirPod” Function for times you drop it or misplace it. You can then use the “Find my iPhone” feature to play a sound on it to find you find WHERE YOU'VE MISPLACED IT!
f) The Lightning to USB Charging Cable that comes with most iPhones is the same type of Charging Cable that is used to charge the AirPods via its Wireless Charging Case - This means you have one less cable to carry around WHEN it comes to time to charge the Wireless Charging Case again ONCE it's run out of Charge! Very Useful!
g) It appears to be water resistant as my daughter splashed water on it by Accident a couple of times AND IT WAS STILL PERFECTLY OK. I wouldn't recommend doing this often though, so as NOT to damage your expensive AirPods!
NOT SO GOOD
a) It is PRIMARILY DESIGNED FOR APPLE PRODUCTS & FOR THE APPLE ECOSYSTEM, so IF you are on a different operating system, say Google Android Operating System, You Will NOT be able to enjoy all the FEATURES DESIGNED INTO IT
b) Like most Apple Products, they may be of “QUALITY” but are VERY EXPENSIVE!
c) And also IF you have a very old iPhone e.g. an iPhone 4s, you may NOT be able to benefit from most of its features or ANY of its Very Useful Features.
My OVERALL VERDICT, it's an EXCELLENT ITEM TO HAVE IF YOU ARE INTO APPLE PRODUCTS AND DON'T MIND “COUGHING UP” i.e. Paying the PREMIUM PRICE IT COSTS.
Mind you, my daughter and a lot of other people are convinced it is. She chose the AirPods over a newer nearly new iPhone 7!
Thanks for reading and I hope you find my REVIEW useful and INFORMATIVE.
These are not new. These are reconditioned. They have been named by someone else! Battery life is now questionable and not comparable with new ones from an apple shop. Have you ever tried to claim against poor battery life?
TL;DR Looks brand new until you pair them - refurbished by Apple.
I was pleased to see these AirPods on Amazon cheaper than the Apple price of £199. When the package arrived, it looked perfect, no damage to the box and it was shrink wrapped. I said to myself "I still can't believe I paid £169.99 for these and saved myself £30 at the same time".
When I paired them to my iPhone that's when shock came in. It had someone else's name it was in Russian so I didn't understand it. Then it said AirPods after it. At first I was just shocked and horrifyed that Apple refurbished these and then sent them to Amazon to sell for a lower price. Everything inside the box had been replaced the charging cable and manual.
I then do what we all do and took to Google, it turns out yes, indeed Apple does refurbish returns and sends items to be resold. Apple could have factory reset them at least and I thought only Apple sold refurbished items on theyr website.
These will be going back for sure. I have no idea what the previous owner has done with them, the lid at the top doesn't feel solid as well, it moves side to side, I don't know if Apple wiped the earbuds down, I mean, they didn't even bother to factory reset them.
If you want to save money on paying the Apple price, by all means go ahead and purchase them. But know that the purchase you're buying isn't 100% brand new - it just looks it.
