Apple’s newest earbuds are a whole new way to experience the world of audio. You’ll either love em’ or hate em’ there’s really no in between. The wireless earpieces offer up good sound quality and crystal clear call experiences. Comfortable - though not for every ear - the audio buds hang freely inside your ears, so you don’t have to contend with annoying wires. Never accidentally get caught in your headphone wires again and find your phone flung across the room or torn from your jacket pocket. The newest line up of iPhones no longer have the standard 3.5mm headphone jacks. The Air Pods are Apple’s answer to a jackless world. Change is hard, and Apple aficionados may find the pods a little alien but convenience might just make these the new favorites for many iPhone users.
Chances are, you’re not buying these for their ability to produce fantastic sound. Considering how convenient and well-designed they are otherwise, the sound quality isn’t bad.
You can also use the Air Pods with an Android device, but they obviously won’t work as well as with an Apple product.
Outside the realm of controls, the wireless design makes the headphones a lot easier to deal with. No longer will you need to spend fifteen minutes untangling your headphones after you’ve pulled them from your backpack or purse. No wires also means no more annoying wire breaks.
The biggest drawback, though? The Air Pods are super easy to lose. You can’t just stick these around your neck should you have to pull them out to order a latte or say hi to a friend. A lot of reviewers missed the convenience of being able to wear their headphones as a necklace.
