Wireless. Effortless. Magical.
Just take them out and they’re ready to use with all your devices. Put them in your ears and they connect instantly. Speak into them and your voice sounds clear. Introducing AirPods. Simplicity and technology, together like never before. The result is completely magical.

Wireless headphones.
Finally untangled.
After a simple one-tap setup, AirPods are automatically on and always connected.1 Using them is just as easy. They can 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 listening to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac.

Tap into Siri.
Talking to your favorite personal assistant is a cinch. Just double-tap either AirPod to activate Siri, without taking your iPhone out of your pocket.

What’s a chip doing in there? A whole lot.
All the groundbreaking things AirPods can do are driven by the custom-designed Apple W1 chip. It produces extremely efficient wireless for a better connection and improved sound. And the W1 chip manages battery life so well, you can listen for 5 hours on a single charge.3 It’s performance that’s unheard of in a device this small.

  • Knows when you’re talking.
    A voice accelerometer recognizes when you’re speaking and works with a pair of beamforming microphones to filter out external noise and focus on the sound of your voice.
  • Knows when you’re listening.
    Optical sensors and motion accelerometers work with the W1 chip to automatically control the audio and engage the microphone, giving you the ability to use one or both AirPods. They also enable AirPods to play sound as soon as they’re in your ears.

The power of 24‑hour battery life.
AirPods deliver an industry-leading 5 hours of listening time on one charge.3 And they’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time. Need a quick charge? Just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time. To check the battery, hold the AirPods next to your iPhone or ask Siri “How’s the battery on my AirPods?”

  • More than24hr.of battery life with charging case
  • Up to 5hr. of battery life on one charge
  • 15min. of charging equals 3 hours of battery life

Clearly superior sound.
It’s great-sounding music, movies, and more to your ears. AirPods provide rich, high-quality AAC audio. And when you want to be heard, dual beamforming microphones filter out background noise when you make calls or talk to Siri.

Automatic setup. Seamless switching.
AirPods connect automatically with all your Apple devices. They’re simultaneously connected to your iPhone and Apple Watch, and sound switches instantly between the devices. Want to listen to your Mac or iPad? Just choose AirPods on those devices.

Customer Review by: Peter on February 14th, 2017

I've borrowed a pair of these for a week, and they are beyond cool. The design is wonderful, the case and actual AirPods are crafted very well. But I want to focus on the practical aspects. I do a lot of listening to Podcasts while I do repetitive work or drive. I use one AirPod at a time, and the sound is perfectly great for that. The ability to stop the podcast by simply moving the AirPod from my ear is a nice touch. I use these exercising, both at once in the gym and one at a time in traffic. They stay remarkably well while I run, but at high wind speed (riding) they do not. If you are going to ride a bike, this requires some adaptation. They stay very well in my ears, which are larger than most. They are comfortable for hours on end, I have forgotten that they were there. On calls the other parties have uniformly been happy with the volume and sound, driving or in the office. And having both AirPods fully voice capable has allowed me to swap during the day so that I can get many hours of calling in a row. That is a nice design feature. I keep the case (which looks like a dental floss box) in my pocket most of the day, and sometimes swap left to right and back as the 5 hour battery on each reaches the end. I have a lot of headsets, many of which are bluetooth. These are my favorites.

Small Dog Review by: LP in VA on April 4th, 2018

These were a somewhat spontaneous splurge after my old iPod shuffle flaked out after many years of faithful use. I am really glad I took the plunge with the Airpods. Although I read reports of these falling out of people's ears, they fit in mine comfortably and securely. I can shake my head around, lean over, bounce up and down, and they stay put. I like them much better than I ever imagined I would. I especially like being able to tap them to tell Siri to adjust the volume. Another plus is being able to wear one and get mono, which is pretty convenient in the car. Also, the range is pretty remarkable. I am not an audiophile, so I the nuances of the sound quality are lost on me, but the sound is definitely a step up from my old shuffle. and earphones.
