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's AirPods are the best fully wireless earbuds you can buy.

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.

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? - Pocket-lint

 

The simplicity of connectivity, automated cross-device use via iCloud, and automatic stop/start controls based on whether one or both AirPods are in your

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.

Apple AirPods

 

AirPods are the first completely wireless earphones from Apple, and they're sold as the perfect companion to the new iPhone 7. In lots of ways, they're the best wireless earbuds you can buy right now, thanks to a rock-solid connection, easy setup and...

Ultimately, the Apple AirPods make me excited for what Apple can achieve for future versions as the first attempt falls short in some important areas.

Apple AirPods review

 

A new dawn for wireless headphones

Brilliant, transformative wireless tech ; Very decent sound ; Awesomely neat, battery-boosting carry case ; Amazingly lightweight, compact and comfortable for those with average ears

Non-adjustable size and shape means they won’t fit everyone ; Attention-grabbing design, and generally not in a good way ; Easily lost and expensive to replace ; Siri isn’t yet a good replacement for buttons

They make you look daft and are in some ways ahead of their time, but tech-wise the AirPods are undeniably awesome

Apple AirPods hands on

 

To coincide with the culling of the headphone jack on the new iPhone 7, Apple has launched its first ever wireless headphones, the Apple AirPods

Tech like this doesn’t come cheap, and the AirPods will be £159 when they go on sale in late October. Whether you’ll be able to buy slightly less sophisticated and a less glamorous Bluetooth in-ears but with a better quality of sound remains to be seen.

Apple's AirPods may look weird, but they'll change the headphone market (hands-on)

 

When Apple launched the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, a lot people were expecting it to announce new wireless headphones from Beats, which it acquired last year, and a wireless version of its EarPods that rumor had it would be called AirPods.
