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 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.

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...

Apple AirPods review

 

Apple's fully wireless earbuds solve its newest problem

Battery life is exceptional ; Sound is great ; Pairing is quick and easy

One-size-fits-all design ; No in-line remote ; Controversial looks

There’s lots to like about the AirPods including their sound quality, and how seamlessly they pair with your device, but at the end of the day their lack of in-line remote means that there are easier headphones to use while out and about, and Siri...

Apple AirPods review: Wire-free future or design disaster?

 

With no headphone socket on the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus , you've either got to go Lightning connector or Bluetooth wireless. And the company is hoping you'll opt for the latter and buy into its wireless in-ear AirPods.

Easy to connect, work instantly across the Apple eco-system, carry case is the charger, sound isolation for calls and Siri control

Design will polarise opinion, lose the charging case you're stuffed, expensive, no audio upgrade compared to EarPods, can fall out, Siri control is sluggish

The AirPods have already polarised opinion when it comes to their design. Everyone we've asked would be conscious about wearing them, both because of the stick that protrudes from each ear and the fear of them falling out and getting lost.
