Great value, well worth initial outlay in terms of reliability, comfort and use convenience.
Bought these for teenage daughter on eBay, significantly below RRP. At the price I paid for them, they are fantastic value. Teenage daughter used to get through pair of lightning headphones, on average, every couple of months. Firmly knocking on wood, she has managed to maintain her first pair of these AirPods for well over that. She adores them, they make her very happy. Further concern before purchase was given how fussy she is regarding comfort and her inclination toward losing or dropping things, is how she'd cope with their fit, would they forever be dropping from her ears, tangled in necklaces, earrings and the like, would she appear after school with only one in her ear, seemingly unaware the other was missing? In short I need not have worried on any of these counts. She has never once mentioned any kind of discomfort (where probably every other item she owns has come under her fire for this at some point in its life); Air pods stop working immediately if separated from one another so she'd know if one dropped or became separated . Fantastic further feature it seems you can synch them with phone to make a noise if you can't find them. Something I would like added to all our items really. All in all, can't fault these, they seem simple to use yet have efficient looking little box with encouraging green light when all is going well, which in general they are. Sole reason for not awarding all five stars is they are Apple which to me is synonymous with neither lasting forever or being particularly robust - at least this is my experience with 3 teens, all of which have tested this brand in term of smashed screens, non charging batteries, headphones falling apart or not working from one speaker, cables dying, resurrecting and all the other headaches Apple have bestowed on me. Sorry, didn't mean to write a missive, my inner Apple bug bear just took me there. In terms of these AirPods however, all is great.Read full review
