Originally priced at $199, you can purchase these must-have headphones for $179. Like the rest of their products, these easily connect to any Apple device and you can quickly access Siri by simply saying “Hey, Siri.”

Minor but handy features include the double-tap to play or skip forward function and rich, high-quality audio and voice. The AirPods can be wirelessly charged using a Qi-compatible charging mat or the Lightning connector.


Nearly 450 Amazon reviewers chimed in and 79% believe these will be your new favorite headphones.

One satisfied customer gave an informative analysis: “I was on the fence for a while on buying AirPods. I recommend buying AirPods if you have an apple watch and iPhone. It connects very well for both devices and is fluid if you switch between both of them.

I was also scared to buy AirPods off amazon but, the price to get the AirPods with the wireless charging case was too good to pass up. I got the official apple AirPods. The box was sealed, and it had everything, including the charger at the bottom.

They synced automatically to my iPhone and apple watch and were added to my list of Apple devices without me doing so. The charging case works well, and chargers with any wireless charging station (I have the JBL PowerUP Speakers, with wireless AirPods charges just fine on it). It's very convenient since I lack the available outlets and USB port space to charge all my devices. Also, I'm guilty of forgetting to plug in my devices to charge, so it is so much easier to just place the AirPods on my wireless charging station and let it do its magic.

The sound quality is pretty good. I haven't had to use the AirPods at maximum volume to cancel out noise. I'm also surprised by how well they stay in my ear. I have small ears and I was so happy how well they fit in my ear with no discomfort. Longwear is definitely doable with these headphones, and it makes ideal since the AirPods 2 have better battery life and last for a long time.

Overall, AirPods are a good investment for wireless headphones. Small and compact-great for commuters. The price is great for the quality compared to other headphones like the beats headphones. In the case something goes wrong, you can have them backed by Apple Care. You won't be able to get this kind of deal anywhere else
