Apple AirPods for Wireless Listening

AirPods take Steve Jobs' minimalist legacy to the next level. These chic, unusual headphones have no wires to get in the way. They're ideal for music or podcasts on the go. Look for them on eBay, and bring style to your everyday life.

Taking care of your Apple AirPods

Unlike a flimsy pair of headphones, AirPods should last a long time, as long as you look after them correctly. Follow this advice to keep them going for longer.

  • Keep them in a dedicated case when you're not using them. This could be their charging case or another dedicated holder. Make sure there's no excess room in the case that allows the AirPods to bang into each other.
  • Don't get them wet. Take care in the rain, or if you're sweating a lot. Damp can damage the interior of your AirPods.
  • If they need to be cleaned, wipe your Apple AirPods gently with a dry cloth. You might want to let them air for an hour or two before returning them to their case.
  • Keep your ears clean. You should be doing this anyway, but a build-up of ear wax can damage your pods, so get those cotton buds out.
Are black AirPods available?

Apple has only released official pods in one colour: Classic Apple white. However, there is a large secondary market of dealers who reskin the original product. As a result, it is possible to find a plethora of colours, including black, pink, gold, and blue. There are some rumours that in the future, Apple will release pods in black and other colours. Take care when making a purchase to ensure you are buying a genuine product.

First generation vs AirPods 2

If you just plan to listen to music, then either version of this product should be fine. However, second-generation Apple AirPods have greater technological capabilities. They connect to Wi-Fi faster and have up to 50% more talk time. They also offer an easier way to activate Siri. With the original AirPods, you have to tap the exterior, but the newer version allows you to just say, "Hey Siri" to get started.

How can you charge your pods?

Your Apple AirPods should come with a charging case that allows you to recharge them on the go. When the case runs out of juice, you will need to recharge it with a USB. When fully charged, the charging case should give you up to 24 hours of listening time.
