    Brian, cmon. If the last Apple headphones (which I've had several) are any indication, they will last about 6 months before dying, will slip out of your ears with the slightest sweat or will crack open from less than a year of use. Get yourself some decent sounding over the ear cans instead of this Apple ripoff.

    THE way these airpods would have been way better is to use the design and audio quality from the in-ear Apple EarPods, since they fit and stay in the ear way better (have three sets of silicon pieces with different sizes so you can use the one that fits you better), have noise cancel for outer noises when playing and have a way better audio quality.

    Only thing that was gonna make me buy these is if they sounded AMAZING. Like good premium quality headphones. But they don't seem to. So I'll pass

    the tap control is a deal breaker, I LOVE my plantronics backbeat headphones that go over the ear with an integrated behind the neck rubber band, they are super comfy and you can use them to change tracks, play pause, siri, on/off/pairing, etc. super easy and i go from mac, to iphone, to ipad, to Roku/via iphone/ipad, to apple tv all around the house and work, they’re perfect. and they were only $160 from costco

    Wait, they cost $159 and you can't change the music track you're listening to??????? Yeah, it's a pass for me. $40 gets you a pair of LG bluetooth headphones that rest on your neck so you forget they're even there. You can take calls. You can adjust the volume up and down. You can use siri (not that I ever do). You can (shocker) go back and forth on your tracks. I mean, really, we're going into 2017 and Apple created a pair of $160 headphones that won't allow you to change your music??

    Honestly, even if they solved all of those problems, I still have two issues, both of which would ensure I never buy these. One, I like to be able to block out outside noise, so I want the earbuds to sit deep in my ear canal. These don't do that, just like all Apple earbuds. Second, these are going to be way too easy to lose. What happens then? Do you have to buy a brand new pair or is Apple "nice enough" to sell you a single one for $80? Yeah, I've bought many apple products and right now I have pretty much all apple stuff. But I wasn't crazy about the iPhone 7, I was sorely disappointed with their macbook pro redo and these are a no-go. Seems like they've been putting out shit ever since Jobs died.

    Come on Brian this is apple. You know they are drip feeding users. Version 4 is the one where they'll become functional and include all the things you mention wanting.

    Thankfully I found the Apple hearing devices just don't fit my ears. I purchased the Kliptch Blue tooth headset and they are mouch more to my liking with much beter sound.

    I know something else that could improve them. A wire from them that runs to your phone. Bluetooth audio is shitterz

    Its funny how he avoids discussing the issue of how they are easy to loose and expensive to replace . Cables give you confidence to wear earphones without fear of losing them while you are on the go.#epicfail

    These are so ugly. No black or other color variations? Overpriced!!! Samsung has the better product, they're smaller and look better.

    The thing I'm looking forward to most about these is when they obsolete them about 6 months after I buy a pair. Kinda like how they did with my original Apple Watch.

    I think they look no more foolish than EarPods with the wires… same shape, not a big deal. I also don't have a problem with reaching for my phone to skip tracks or increase the volume, I did that with the EarPods anyways. Never really used the controls on the wire. For me it's more about having no constraints and no tangling. And when I'm commuting on a packed bus, I'm always afraid someone's bag is going to snag onto the wire and pull the EarPods out. This product fixes everything for me. I'll definitely be buying it.

    If were to buy these I would just use my Apple Watch to change tracks and volume and even play/pause. I didn't like the ear pods so I highly doubt I would like the air pods. The fitment sucked so did the sound.

    Give Apple a chance, this is the first batch, they might come with something different later on. The price ???? Maybe $99

    He didn't mention that you can use Siri to pause, play, skip tracks, and adjust volume. You don't need to choose between pause/play and Siri.

    When recording videos on your iPhone, do they work as microphones?

    Have you compared them to Beats by Dre? I'd really like you're feedback in this department. Thx

    for $149 bucks I'd rather get better cans/earpieces than these.

    You can't control volume?!?!?!?! These are a huge step backwards. My $30 bluetooth headphones from Amazon do more than these. Apple is taking "simplicity" to a stupid level.

    It's amazing to hear a douche complain that these look like a tampon.

    Doesn't this defeat the purpose of Apple's Moto for sleek design

    nice tech, but over ear Bluetooth headphones are obviously far superior in sound quality
