AirPods!

My kids bought me AirPods for my birthday and I have been eagerly waiting for them to arrive. Today was my day. Pairing was super easy. Love how they turn on when placed in my ear. Phone calls with both AirPods was a little weird, I prefer a single which also works well. I called my dad and he said I sounded a little tin like but very clear. Double tap for siri works perfectly. So far I am very happy. I think they will work well for the gym or working in the garden.

Birthday L E A D E R !

Glad you like them, they seem to be very popular with those that own them.

I'm too afraid I'd lose them...

I have been loving the AirPods since late December.
If you're in a situation where they might fall off, this leash may be for you. I use it when skiing.

I love my AirPods. I have had them for 9 months now. I like being able to use one while listening to a pod cast while walking the dog. I think they sound better than standard Apple ear buds.

Most people who own AirPods, love them.
Most people who've only seen pictures and reviews of AirPods hate them.

I have been using a pair since May. I only use them at the gym. The main reason for that is I like to have a dedicated pair in my gym bag so they are always there. Treadmills are even more boring w/o music!

I keep them in a ziploc with a bag of dessicants (I sweat. A lot) and a 3000 mAh powerbank plugged into the case to keep them charged. I re-charge the bank every two weeks or so, but it could probably go 6-8.

Anyway, I didn't like them at first. Was always having to re-seat them else they would fall out. It was making my ears hurt. Then I got these:

and now all is right in the world! They stay in even in the sweatiest conditions and they are easy to get on/off once you've done it a few times.

Have you compared the price to other totally wireless earbuds?

My objections are mostly aesthetic. They look so wrong. And it seems like it would be easy to lose one. Same thing all the naysayers dislike, I guess.

It didn't help that the one time I have seen them in the wild, they were stuck in the ears of a dude with his hair crewcut all around, with long hair on the top of his head tied in a wee ponytail. Somehow he had escaped from Brooklyn.
