I just picked up a pair of Airpods at my local apple store (there were lots in stock in montreal).. All I can say is wow. The sound is surprisingly good. I'm particularly impressed with the low end and how loud they can go. They are so much better than my previous Bluetooth earbuds, even after I added comply foam tips to those. I actually like the fact that they aren't completely isolating, as I found the vacuum seal with other headphones a bit disorienting. They are extremely comfortable, even more so than the earpods. Fit is great in my ears and they don't fall out. Pairing and switching between my 7plus and 2012 rmbr and 2016 rmb has been an amazing experience. I haven't had them long enough to speak to durability, but they feel well made and sturdy from first use. Some concerns I will be keeping an eye out for: Battery life of airpods and case (haven't had them long enough to form a complete opinion but they do charge very quickly). I'm also concerned by how easy they are to clean. Whenever I used earpods in the past they would gradually fill up with ear wax and gunk and the sound quality would deteriorate requiring thorough cleaning. How do they stand up to sweat/water in occasional workout use? Anyway, I just wanted to post this as a hearty endorsement for anyone on the fence about getting a pair: Airpods are great and really good in many of the aspects I was worried they would not perform well in.
