Do Those Actually Stay In?

Do Those Actually Stay In?

I get stopped All. The. Time. when I'm wearing my AirPods and asked how I like them.

For someone who's always on the go, and always talking or listening to music, AirPods are a game changer. The cords on the old EarPods used to always get tangled. No matter how well I folded them up and put them in my purse, I always had to detangle them before putting them in my ears. SOOOO Annoying. The AirPods don’t have cords, so I never have to deal with another tangle again. Also I used to get the cords caught on things-- in my car, on my purse, an occasional door handle, yep…. and they would get snatched out of my ears. I also was limited by where I could put my phone if I was using the headphones. Most of the time I had to hold my phone. Now I put my phone in my bag, zip it up, and I can listen or talk away.


Pros/ Cons


  • They never get tangled and never fall out of my ears.
  • The cords never break, because they have none.
  • The airpod technology greatly reduces background noise compared to the old EarPods.
  • When my hair is down you can’t really see them. (Although you do look like a crazy person talking to yourself. But I'll take it.)


  • You cannot control the volume on them yet, like you can on the EarPods. (But once you set it on your phone, it’s usually fine.)
    • Tip: You can ask Siri to turn the volume up or down.
  • They don’t work with plane TVs, but neither do your new (iPhone 6/7) earbuds with the lightning cable.
  • You can pull them out with your long hair, if you’re aggressively changing or fixing your hair.. (However, that rarely happens unless I'm shopping. Dressing room phone calls, anyone?)

  • You currently have two options: Double tap to play/pause your music, or talk to Siri. 
    • You answer incoming calls with the double tap too.
    • More options are coming soon with an update.
  • It comes with a TicTac sized case that stores them and recharges them for you. It holds about 24 hours of battery life, and the pods hold up to 5 hours of battery life on one charge. 
    • 15 minutes of charging in the case will give you about 3 hours of battery life. 
    • I've only ran the battery down completely one time and I had back to back calls literally all day.
  • You can use Find My iPhone to locate your AirPods on a map.


My advice: I say upgrade! I think AirPods are the best new product from Apple in years. Happy Cord-Free Talking!
