More magical than ever.

Now with more talk time and voice-activated Siri access AirPods deliver an unparalleled wireless headphone experience. Simply take them out and they’re ready to use with all your devices. Put them in your ears and they connect immediately, immersing you in rich, high-quality sound. Just like magic.

Wireless to the fullest.

After a simple one-tap setup, AirPods are automatically on and always connected. Using them is just as easy. They sense when they’re in your ears and pause when you take them out. And the AirPods experience is just as amazing whether you’re using them with your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac.

Just ask Siri.

Talking to your favourite personal assistant is easier than ever. Simply say "Hey Siri" for assistance without having to reach for your iPhone.

Performance you’ll want to hear.

Powered by the all-new Apple H1 headphone chip, AirPods deliver a faster and more stable wireless connection to your devices — up to 2x faster when switching between active devices, and a 1.5x faster connection time for phone calls. The H1 chip also drives voice-enabled Siri access and delivers up to 30 per cent lower gaming latency.So whether you’re playing games, listening to music or enjoying podcasts, you’ll experience higher-quality sound.

a £10 set of wired earbuds has better sound quality...


It really doesn’t

For what it’s worth this is not the best at every single feature category when it comes to earphones but it’s hands down the best product that includes all the features you would want.

Bought mine from BT at this price, towards the end of November. It was the only place that had any left and I urgently need them for a present.

To be fair, the service was very good and they were very quickly delivered. No complaints.

BT Shop... worst in delivery. I order these on Black Friday deal after two weeks they were not dispatched. Had to cancel the order.

Useless comparison.
Didn’t want to spend so much on earphones, but went for the AirPods £119 next day delivery on 23rd dec.
If you have apple they just work, place the AirPods close to your phone, message pops up, tap connect and all sorted, simple easy and connected immediately ever since.
I recommend a silicon case for a few quid of eBay to protect it

£82 was a fair price for these on the deal a few weeks ago. Think at this price it’s difficult to justify, but understand they’re about the look as well as everything else.

I decided to get some as my earphones wires are always hopelessly tangled in my work bag so it’s hard to untangle, and use to answer a call ..
Cheaper alternatives would have probably worked but you are paying for the perfect sync and streamless hassle free usage, agree £80 would be a fair price but even its closest rivals such as Samsung and huawei want a similiar price.
Apple aren’t a charity they are a money making machine

These work great super easy to use no faffing around they just work when you need them too. Had a few different cheaper wireless headphones trying to be AirPods and they generally either stop working or you have issues connecting. Might not be the cheapest headphones on the market but you pay for no hassle and you might as well enjoy the headphones rather than continually hoping they connect when you try to use them

Obviously never owned a pair or are just anti apple. The AirPods are brilliant, work seamlessly and the sound quality is impressive for something so small with no wires! They outperformed my beats in every aspect by far.
How are these for running outside? Do they fall out?

I took a pair out running and within minutes the left headphone fell out. Luckily I caught it otherwise the pavement would have scratched up the out case. Apparently you can buy some grips off ebay which secure the pod into your ear better.

That’s the most frustrating thing about them. So damn practical and yet their sound quality leaves a lot to be desired. Was lucky to flog my original airpods before the second gen came out

Whilst I agree with you in general, you’re not setting the bar high comparing them to beats

Depends on your ears. You can go to an Apple store and try a pair out so you can judge the fit yourself.

Actually was 21st i ordered. The price had recently come down and as a result both Amazon and Laptopsdirect had sold out, with only BT still having them in stock at £129. Had a major panic as i needed them for 24th and i had been hoping the prices would come down further, hence holding off the purchase. Actually wanted wireless charging, but they suddenly went up in price.
Due to the low stock elsewhere, perhaps BT sold out quickly too and the wait you experienced was due to them having to order more in themselves. I guess you ordered sometime after me.
Will always get a few that moan about the price of apple products without owning any themselves great product and if i lost mine today, id go out and buy myself another. Well worth every penny, if you always use headphones and have an iphone/mac these are a no brainer! Heat added🔥

Not particularly an Apple fanboy, but the guy in the video literally says that the airpod pros are the best available wireless earbuds on the market. He also spends the entire video talking about their good points. He does concede that most wired headphones offer better quality audio, and I think most 'audiophiles' (ugh...) agree that wireless audio hasn't quite caught up to the same playing field just yet, but he's referring to the technology rather than the airpods. What the reviewer didn't like was Apples use of 'Pro' in the product name when they can't be used for professional purposes. And that's a fair criticism.

So, for the purpose of HUKD - the airpods are some of the best wireless earbuds available, and this price is great. Reviews across the internet are favourable, but big brands and technology are always a divisive subject amongst neckbeards. Chances are, regular people interested in airpods / wireless earbuds probably aren't interested in a £20 pair of wired headphones because they're in a growing majority of people whose phone does not have a headphone jack. There's always a cheaper product from China but there's a good arguement for ease of use and a decent warranty.
How disgusting... In the US they pay 139 USD and here they make us pay 139 GBP. Same thing with iPhones too. I never buy Apple products, simply out of principle.

Your loss.
Has anyone tried any of the ripoff brands ? Any decent ones to buy?

I’d avoid the ripoff lookalikes on amazon as the sellers are clearly manipulating old product pages as reviews for these fake iPods all talk about dentist fillings and other random crap, few reviews exist for the actual item

Was skeptical about the price but got some before xmas for around £163 from currys with the wireless case. Have quickly came to love them. Very easy to setup and use. Good features and practical (eg. just take one out and it pauses). Haven't tried running in them (save that for new year!) but generally fit nice in my ear and don't feel like they are gonna fall out, just have to be cautious when putting up/down a hood. Sound quality is decent, yes there may be better ones out their and generally I have always preferred over ears, but they are still loud and clear.
