The details

Apple AirPods are the wireless alternative to headphones that pair easily with your Apple device without compromising sound quality or performance.

The AirPod wireless charging case holds multiple full charges for your ear buds and has more than 24 hours of battery life. Each charge delivers up to five hours of play time and three hours of talk time; when not in use, should be kept in the charging case to ensure you never miss a call, a podcast or a song.

Since the AirPods are paired to your iOS device (like your iPad, iPhone or MacBook) you’ll receive a push notification when your battery is running low. When your charging case battery pack is low, simply connect the case to a power source using the included Lightening cord.

What people are saying

Considering the popularity of AirPods, it should come as no surprise that the wireless headphones have earned an "Amazon's Choice" title and an average rating of 4.7 stars.

According to one five-star reviewer, the Apple headphones are "truly life-changing."

The "sound quality is great" and the "charging time is low," they write. The reviewer says that while they expected "just another hype product from Apple," the Airpods "really make" phone calls "significantly easier."

Another shopper lauds the headphones for their "seamless connection, great sound quality," and "compact, high-quality design."

They write that Amazon has the "best price around" for second-generation AirPods.

The AirPods deliver "great sound quality" and have a "long battery life," echos a third shopper, who says their previous pair lasted "over three years." Adding, it's a "great investment."

Despite a myriad of five-star reviews, some shoppers have trouble synching the AirPods to their devices.

They have "great sound quality when they connect," writes one reviewer. However, they "only connect" when they "feel like it." Adding, they're "totally useless at synching."

Verdict

If you’re a loyal Apple product user, you’ll probably enjoy the benefits of wireless ear buds that allow you to easily pair with multiple devices with ease, especially at their current sale price. However, if possible synching issues worry you, these AirPods may not be for you.
