not to worry, apple users have been getting shafted for years with inferior products and old tech.

They will happily pay that for what is essentially a £5 bluetooth earbud

to be fair I wouldn't expect them to be free or cheap, if *I lost* a wheel for my new car I wouldn't expect a free replacement

Bit different concept, but I do get your point. You're gonna notice a wheel missing, but something as small as an AirPod is easily lost

But they are making even more profit than one original airpod costs.

What if you lost a wheel off your Matchbox car?

but if you buy something and lose it, it's your own fault

this is only talked about because it's Apple

​but they designed it so that it is incredibly easy to lose in a form of revenue preservation

​I wouldn't expect them to be free... Spares are always dearer pro rata.

The real irony unwittingly hidden in your comment is you could actually buy a brand new wheel for the price of an airbud

Is this thread just for people who are unjustifiably angry at a manufacturer to announce how much the manufacturer angers them? Not even sure why people who make the point that they won't buy Apple products get so upset about the replacement parts/repair costs/relative spec of said items they will never buy anyway. Are they being sympathetic and worrying about their fellow man or do they they just have nothing better to worry about?

Replacement parts are always relatively expensive. I've known replacement remote controls cost almost as much as the entire unit; ink cartridges cost almost as much as the printer much of the time...it's not exclusive to Apple, and as previously mentioned - losing something is your fault. It would make sense to take out insurance if you're prone to such things.

People were even getting het up about the repairability of the AirPods. When was the last time you attempted to repair a Bluetooth headset?! I have loads of little Bluetooth devices knocking about - some of which cost me a fortune at launch, but I wouldn't - and haven't - thought about dismantling them.
