I adopted bluetooth headsets years ago starting with the original Jawbone and ending with a Jabra Stealth. I had many different brands. The AirPods are my latest and first off they are far from perfect so don't expect that. The good things are: very comfortable, easy and quick to charge, sound is decent, but not excellent. The not good things: Sometimes there is some minor noise on the audio. Sometimes they do not automatically turn on as they are supposed to and connect to your iPhone or whatever you are connecting to. Sometimes you have to move them around in your ear to get them to turn on. Sometimes you have to manually turn them on using your device to do so. Lastly but my biggest complaint is the longevity on a charge is just not that good. For example a Jabra Stealth is good for 5 hrs talk time. The AirPods are good for maybe 2 hrs.
That is just not enough. I usually use mine for phone calls. I use one and when it goes dead I put it in the case to charge and take out the one for my other ear and start using that one. I don't find them as great as all the reviews I read online. Apparently some people have not had much experience with Bluetooth headsets and therefore think these are better than they are because it's all they have ever used. I think they could use some improvements in the areas mentioned.
What is everyone thoughts/reviews on the new Apple Air pods?
I am thinking of purchasing some but wondered if anyone had any thoughts or experience with them?
