Instant bluetooth, light weight, no cords and a case that recharges means that you'll find yourself using the Airpods far more than normal wired headphones. Great for workouts too. The perfect gift for people who spend a lot of time making calls or listening to podcasts or music.
There are just an amazing piece of technology, they work great, stay and feel pretty good in the ears and they totally helped me forget 3.5mm audio jack... what a courage!
- Awesome for people who love the look of their new iPhone and still wan to to put a case on it without it looking like a brick. This is only for people who treat their iPhone well though. I have this case for scratches. Don't expect it to save your phone from a nasty fall. My last one for my iPhone 7 was great though, dropped it a few times and was fine.
Bought one for the 6S, started to separate from the phone after use, like it was too big for it. Got a replacement and it happened again. Wouldn't recommend.
You can't expect the thinnest case to be extremely protective or durable, but after 5 or so drops one of the corners cracked. Anywhere the plastic hit the ground it developed those white hardened spots like when you bend plastic back and forth. After a couple of months the case was ugly and not really worthwhile. Seems like you might as well go caseless.
- I would say the sound is considerably better, the microphone is definitely better, the in-ear design blocks out outside sound (meaning you can have the volume lower and damage your hearing less, plus makes commuting better), and they look 100x cooler than earpods.
I have typically been against using Beats headphone as I felt they were expensive for what you got. After getting a pair for free I can say that the audio quality is better than most headphones that I've owned and that the overall value is probably worth the price.
Very good choice for sports.
- Really can't understand why more people aren't picking these up in favor of AirPods, or BeatsX. I find that the sound quality is way (wayy) better, the buds themselves are super comfortable (I can wear them for hours whereas the airpods start to hurt after 15-20 minutes), and I like that they have a wire connecting them. Connecting to my devices is incredibly quick and very reliable. Battery is solid, and powering them down is as simple as connecting the two buds together via the built in magnets. Great product.
