Overview

Our take on the Apple® AirPods

This is an exciting time in the world of headphones, largely due to this particular pair — the Apple AirPods. Back when Apple dropped the traditional headphone jack from the iPhone®, they also dropped these state-of-the-art earbuds. You've no doubt noticed people wearing them. Unlike anything we've ever carried, these in-ear headphones are completely wire-free.

Apple's game-changing wireless headphones

This is an exciting time in the world of headphones, largely due to this particular pair — the Apple AirPods. Back when Apple dropped the traditional headphone jack from the iPhone®, they also dropped these state-of-the-art earbuds. You've no doubt noticed people wearing them. Unlike anything we've ever carried, these in-ear headphones are completely wire-free.

There's no cord connecting the two ultra-light earbuds. Instead, they each fit independently and are both jam-packed with cutting-edge wireless technology. The headliner is Apple's new W1 chip. While the AirPods will play music wirelessly from any Bluetooth-enabled phone or music source, the W1 chip makes pairing up with Apple devices even more special. 

Steady, high-quality connection to your Apple gear

Easy and straightforward. That's the best way to describe the wireless pairing process between the AirPods and your Apple products (I tried it when I reviewed the Beats Solo3 headphones). A one-tap connection syncs up the earbuds to your iPhone, and then you're automatically paired to other devices on your iCloud account (like your Apple Watch®, iMac®, or iPad®). The W1 chip ensures a strong wireless connection and allows for higher-fidelity streaming.

The chip works with a super-powerful microphone for clear, seamless phone calls and Siri® voice commands. You can scroll through songs and answer calls by touch, or double-tap either AirPod to activate Siri. Just how smart are these earbuds? When you remove one — or both — music will stop playing, and it resumes as soon as you put them back in. 

A carrying case that recharges your earbuds wirelessly

Thanks to the W1 chip's battery management, the tiny AirPods offer five hours of music listening on a full charge. Siri will keep you updated on your battery life. When you need to refuel, just click the AirPods into the included charging carrying case. The case is a little bigger than a matchbox, and can bank 24 hours of power to recharge your AirPods. 15 minutes inside the pouch gives your AirPods three hours of wireless use. 

Product Highlights:

  • built-in Bluetooth for wireless music listening and phone calls
    • Apple's W1 chip provides seamless, reliable wireless connection with iPhone 7 and other Apple devices
    • AAC decoding provides high-quality music streaming from compatible devices
  • no connecting cord between left and right earbud

    • requires iCloud account and iOS 10, macOS Sierra, or watchOS 3
  • dual beam-forming microphones with voice recognition for calls and Siri control
  • control music, volume, and Siri by tapping either AirPod
  • optical sensors automatically stop music in either AirPod when removed
    • AirPods can be used one at a time or as a pair
  • built-in rechargeable batteries offer up to 5 hours of listening
  • included carrying case banks up to 24 hours of power to wirelessly recharge AirPods
    • 15 minutes inside case provides enough power for 3 hours of listening

Better than I thought it would be. Well made because it's another Apple product. I have oily skin and i find it helps to use alcohol to clean the ear so it stays in. You can use lense cleaner wipes also and handy to carry.

I love these air pods. Great for when I'm pressure washing my drive to cutting my grass. Don't have to worry about tangled wires and stays in my ears. They last for a long time while listening to music and hooks to my iPhone 6S plus with ease. It's amazing at the bass and sound quality in such a little device. Great buy!!! As always " awesome quality" when you buy from Crutchfield!!!

Pros: Sound quality, fittment, wireless, long lasting...

James from Bayside, NY on 2/26/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a well made product, and the sound quality is awesome. BUT, since the ear buds do not have any rubber tips to seal some sound, you can hear all of the sounds around you. My first use was today on the bus going to work. I heard every sound around me including a conversation across the isle. I know Apple will never change the AirPods, but the design is flawed as far as I'm concerned. There should rubber tips to seal out at least some noise. I really want to keep these, but at this price point, I can't.

Pros: Great sound quality.

Cons: No rubber tips to conceal some sound.

Best iOS device!!

Felix from Mangilao, GU on 2/25/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is possibly the best iOS device I have ever owned!! I love the way this device seamlessly syncs with all my iOS devices. The sound quality is great and I'm fortunate the AirPods fit perfectly in my ear, as to my understanding is the drawback of the AirPods in terms of proper ear fitment. However, they do have aftermarket earpieces to make fitment better for those who require such customization.

Pros: Convient Great Sound Quality

Cons: Pricey

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have to admit I was one the naysayers when the AirPods were introduced but after wanting a set wireless headphones for workouts I purchased the AirPods. Their ease of use from immediate connection and setup to convenient charging with the tiny case made me eat my words. If I were to be super critical, yes the sound is not close to my Grado headphones but come on... at this price they are the best price per value item in my opinion for any Apple product. Not only useful for music but as a Bluetooth phone ear piece they are remarkably clear on reception and transmission. I have paid more for dedicated phone ear pieces over the years with no where near the functions of the AirPods... they are that good in my opinion...

These AirPods are amazing. Using with my iPhone X they paired so easily just put them next to the phone open the case and done! They sound amazing! Only wish that the battery life were a bit longer but that's negligible cause the charging case charges them super fast & can charge the pair multiple times. Love the fact that you can use one or both at the same time & talk on the phone as well! Highly Recommended!

I love my AirPods! They are so useful for exercising and for being able to freely move about while doing errands. They are very well-shaped and I do not have to worry about them falling out of my ears. The only reason I have given them 4 stars is because it started to come loose when I would sweat, but I know these are not exercise-optimized headphones.

Great headphones for anyone with an iPhone. Very easy to pair and easy to switch between apple devices. They're very light it's its amazing how freeing it is to not have any wires. They do begin to hurt after a few hours of use but nothing a quick 5 minute break won't fix. Overall would buy again

Pros: Pairing, ease of use, sound

Cons: Can be uncomfortable after a long time

Anonymous from Seattle, WA on 11/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

AirPods sound good, are incredibly light, and work as promised. They were easy to pair to phone and iPad, and MacBook. Now that they've been paired, they connect instantly and switch between devices readily. They stay charged because they charge up every time they're returned to their case, so they're always ready to use (just keep the dental floss-sized case charged). In that respect, they're the equal of wired earbuds because they're always ready to go. These do not seal in the ears to physically block extraneous sound like some earbuds. They're incredibly light and at first I thought "there's no way these will stay in my ears." It was the wrong impression - they stay in until taken out. Jumping, running, and other normal physical activity doesn't dislodge them. Comfortable is an understatement. They have a few programming options available through the phone settings menu, which is valuable. Each one can be programmed to respond differently when double tapped. "Tap to skip" and "Tap to pause" work great. They also work great for phone conversations. The delivery from Crutchfield was outstanding as usual. They were packed in a much larger box with biodegradable packing material and arrived quickly.

Great wireless earphones if you have apple products. They connected with my iPhone and Mac seamlessly right off the box as advertised and switch very fast between devices. They were delivered on time. Great product and great website. I use it for running and workouts and they never fall out of my ear. Seems sweatproof too although Apple doesn't claim it to be. With IOS 11 update, skip track and play/pause features are very convenient by just double tapping on the Airpods.

Pros: Absolutely no audio cut off even with walls in between and great sound quality.

Cons: Wish Apple offered them in other colors like black or dark grey.

The audio quality of these pods is as good as any I've listened to. It's amazing that they can run for a decent length of time on their own power. The range on them seems to be a good 30 feet with walls inbetween. Some may not care for the in ear placement, but I don't mind it. Phone calls are great as well. Unbelievably easy to set up on any of my apple devices. Very intelligent interfacing to my iphone 7.

Pros: Charge lasts reasonable amount of time Great range for bluetooth Very good integration with ios Dental floss charger/storage is a great concept I think the price is very reasonable for what you get

Cons: Don't count on hours upon hours of continuous use, you'll have to put them in the dental floss charger and take a break (use your tethered pods if needed).

The Tesla of earphones

Jim from New York, NY on 8/4/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I really enjoy my new AirPods. Having no wires at all is a unique and truly liberating experience. Sometimes they have a problem emitting sound, like when I am riding my bike and my phone and charger are in my pockets. The sound will cut in and out, or it will switch from one ear to another instead of being simultaneous. But no problems when stationary. Sound is crystal clear while the bass is tight and punchy enough. Despite some inconveniences, AirPods are a unique product with a lot of upside and I would still make the same decision to buy them. They are much like a Tesla in that regard.

Pros: Truly liberating to have no wires at all. They stay put in my ears and have great sound quality. The mids and highs are very clear. Bass is tight and punchy.

Cons: The consistency of sound can be choppy when I put my phone in my pocket and ride my bike. It's like it shorts out and reconnects, which is annoying. But no problem when stationary. Also, bass might not be deep or resonant enough for some people. Pairing the AirPods with an Android device is a bit tricky.

Features

Overview: The Apple AirPods are individual in-ear buds designed to work with your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or Mac. Each AirPod is 0.654" x 1.596" x 0.628", and weighs 0.14 ounces. There are no connecting cables between them. They operate via Bluetooth, and power on and connect automatically when you open the lid of the charging case. The AirPods feature several sensors and accelerometers to detect when they're in your ears, or when you tap them to control playback, answer a call, or activate Siri. The AirPods come with a standard Lightning-to-USB cable.

Compatibility: The AirPods are compatible with the following Apple products:

  • iPhone: iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 5.
  • iPad: iPad Pro 10.5-inch, iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2nd Generation), iPad Pro 12.9-inch (1st Generation), iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad Air 2, and iPad Air.

System Requirements: iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models with iOS 10 or later. Apple Watch models with watchOS 3 or later, Mac models with macOS Sierra or later.

Power Requirements: The Apple AirPods are powered by rechargeable batteries that can be charged inside the Charging Case. The Apple W1 chip maximizes efficiency, giving the AirPods up to 5 hours listening time and up to 2 hours talk time on a single charge. The Charging Case has its own rechargeable power pack, allowing you to recharge the AirPods numerous times. Placing the AirPods in the case for a mere 15 minutes gives you an additional 3 hours listening time and over an hour of talk time. The AirPods, together with the Charging Case, provide more than 24 hours of listening time, and up to 11 hours talk time. A standard Lightning-to-USB cable is provided for charging the Charging Case.

Sensors and Accelerometers: The AirPods feature built-in sensors and accelerometers that can automate numerous functions. When the AirPods are pulled out of their Charging Case, they instantly turn on and connect to your iOS device. As soon as you put them in your ears, your music starts playing. Take one or both AirPods out and your music pauses. To adjust the volume, change the song, or make a call, you can simply tap either AirPod. Double-tap to activate Siri. The AirPods can detect when you're on a call or talking to Siri, and will engage the microphone, route the audio back to your phone, and reject background noise so your call is crystal clear.

I have the EarPods that came with my Apple IPhone 6s Plus and they are awesome. A friend had a pair of the AirPods and I tried them out and they sound and work great just like my EarPods but wireless, so I had to get a pair and what better place to order them from than Crutchfield!!! ??

Got a new iPhone X and wanted seamless integration. Generally speaking, Apple products don't disappoint. [ Douglas  Dec 28, 2017 ]
because they recharge many times in the box, so they last longer than the rest, already bought the bose sport, and they don't last as much. [ max  Dec 27, 2017 ]

Quality and ease of use with my iPhone and iWatch. [ Stephen  Sep 24, 2017 ]
I chose the AirPods because the wireless capability allows me to listen to music untethered. Whether walking the dog or mowing the lawn, I have the freedom from wires so I don't have to worry about them getting tangled or potentially damaging the headset jack if the wire gets yanked out. Additionally, since I'm planning on getting the new iPhone X which doesn't have a headset jack...I'm already prepared. [ CHRIS  Sep 19, 2017 ]
Heard good reviews and wanted something that's truly wireless. [ JOIE A  Sep 18, 2017 ]
With so many earphones to choose from. Why not just go with apple....... everything =) [ Kurt  Sep 18, 2017 ]
Convenience and Apple quality. [ ARNOLD  Sep 17, 2017 ]
Why does anyone buy apple products...they simply work the best [ Alan  Sep 15, 2017 ]
It is the future on headphones and now more than ever with the new Apple Watch [ Jose  Sep 13, 2017 ]
Very good quality sound & fit. [ Jean  Sep 11, 2017 ]
Birthday gift for my wife [ Joseph  Aug 20, 2017 ]
Gift for a close relative. [ Phyllis  Aug 17, 2017 ]
I chose these because I started a career in machining, I can't use them all the time but I just started which means I'm stuck in the back doing all the jobs no one else wants to do. I don't need wires getting caught in my work. I will try to exercise with them but do not have a lot of faith due to trouble in the past with apple earpods. Hopefully the lack of wire pulling them down they will stay in my ear better. I will try beats if these don't work [ Taylor  Aug 16, 2017 ]
Read reviews and spoke with a colleague who owns them and had great things to say about them. [ Pete  Jul 22, 2017 ]
I'm an apple lover [ nevin  Jul 22, 2017 ]
Although all reviews agreed they looked odd, they all also advised they were great. Looking forward to using the W1 chip and being wire free. [ Ryan  Jul 22, 2017 ]

Yep! The Apple AirPods not only work seamlessly with Apple devices, they will also play audio wirelessly from just about any Bluetooth-enabled device; including LG's C7P OLED model.
