Apple AirPods review


Yes, wearing Apple's AirPod headphones makes you look positively goofy. But you already knew that .

The ultra lightweight Apple AirPods are fully wireless headphones that offer a reliable wireless connection, effortless pairing with Apple devices, decent sonics and good call quality. The included compact charging case quickly charges the buds.

Their open design allows for a lot of ambient noise to leak in. There are no controls on the buds (except Siri). Similarly priced wireless models deliver better sound. And yes, they look pretty dorky.

Look past their offbeat design and you'll find that Apple AirPods' compact size and high convenience factor are a winning combination.

Apple AirPods Review


Wireless headphones have been ripe for a reboot for years now, but no contenders for the crown have divided opinion quite like Apple's AirPods. Revealed alongside the iPhone 7, the fully-wireless earbuds were intended to salve the pain of losing the...

Apple AirPods


The Apple AirPods feel like a big step for wireless in-ear audio—but it's more about innovations and features and less about audio performance.

Clear audio performance. Seamlessly pairs with multiple iOS devices on the same iCloud account. Carrying case doubles as backup battery.

Lack of ear canal seal means less bass response and potential ear-to-ear stereo image discrepancies. Limited onboard controls virtually require you to use Siri. In-ear fit could be more secure.

Most of the hand-wringing over the lack of a headphone jack in the iPhone 7 is misdirected—wireless audio is clearly the direction of the future. But it remains to be seen how the world will respond to this new breed of cable-free earphones. As far as...

Apple The bottom line: Our quick verdict on Apple's AirPods


With Apple kissing the standard headphone jack goodbye, it's hoping people will buy these completely wireless earbuds instead. They're elegant in some ways, with a simple pairing process and good voice-call quality. It's too bad that Apple otherwise...

Dead-simple to set up ; Siri and calls work very well ; Solid battery life

Controls aren't flexible enough ; Mediocre audio quality ; EarPods-inspired design isn't for everyone

Apple AirPods Review


At Apple's September keynote event that took place a few months ago, there were a few controversial announcements that took place. The iPhone 7's familiar design and the removal of its 3.5mm headphone jack caused for quite a bit of uproar, and along...

Minimalistic design ; Comfortable to wear ; Ridiculously easy pairing process ; Gesture controls work well ; Audio is clear and surprisingly punchy ; Battery life is incredible for headphones this small ; Price is competitive against similar gadgets

One-size-fits-all design won’t fit everyone’s ears perfectly ; Limited gesture controls

Apple’s AirPods certainly may be one of the more controversial products that the company released this year, but after spending some good quality time with them, they just might be one of my favorite gadgets of 2016.

Battle of the buds: How Apple AirPods stack up against other wireless earbuds


You don't wireless earbuds yet, but you probably will in a few years.

Tim Cook was probably correct when he declared "wireless is the future" while talking about the AirPods. Apple did an adequate job on its first try making truly wireless buds, although I'm not willing to compromise on comfort and fit. Thankfully,...

Review: Bragi's Headphone offers a solid alternative to Apple AirPods


Bragi's fully wireless Headphone -- yes, in the singular -- is a competent if not spectacular alternative to Apple's AirPods, and even has some features the AirPods lack.

If you're searching for all-wireless earbuds and don't want AirPods for whatever reason, the Headphone will certainly do. It's a little more subtle than Apple's product, fashion-wise, and features like on-ear controls and audio transparency may tip...
