    Wow. Gone.

    These things aren't flying off the shelf. They never make it as far as the shelf!

    I already have a pair and was going to snag a 2nd set to give as a Christmas gift. No big deal really just wanted to post so others don't waste their time looking because they are back out of stock..

    I'm in the same boat. I need a second pair for the wife's Christmas. Because when she sees mine, I'm going to be in big trouble ;)

    I have a pair in cart at BB that says expected to ship Feb 9. Do they ship right away anyway or is this something new

    Edt - I went for it, so I have an order in with BB and Sprint. If one ships I'll cancel/return the other!

    I ordered a pair yesterday with a February date - they shipped today via Next Day Air. Just ordered another (same Feb date) - hoping they ship tomorrow so I can have both before Christmas.

    Uhm..... You mean you aren't going to have any air pods until you can get a 2nd order in because YOUR WIFE is going to have the pair coming first! :)

    i got mine order in today at Best Buy when showed i would get by 12/27. Best Buy already charged debit card and got e-mail confirmation from Best Buy. Went to look at status and showing Backordered. Oh well.

    Bad part is they hit my debit card before shipping. They should at least reverse the charge if not really shipping.

    Haha something like that. I wished I'd just ordered 2 pairs from the git-go. I seriously didn't think these little guys would be so cool. Boring old bluetooth headset, right? Who'd want that for Christmas? (Answer: Me, the geek)

    But as someone mentioned on another thread, these hark back to Apple's past when everything was simple, easy and just worked. Geeky me doesn't mind tweaking settings and being patient, but my wife has no tolerance for all that nonsense. Past bluetooth headsets have been abandoned because they never paired reliably, sounded terrible or were just plain-old awkward for everyday use. These are different.

    Happily I scored another pair in the last hour (thank you iStockNow!!!). They popped up in Atlanta for all of 3 minutes and were then gone.

    Now to plot a furtive trip downtown to pick them up!

    Haha, Christmas! :)

    I ordered when they said 12/23 and it showed get it by 12/23 on the order status page, but now it's showing backordered. The order status page still shows get it by 12/23. But it also keeps flip-flopping back to in progress. I don't know. We'll see what happens.

    Yeah ordered one from Bestbuy today showing 12/29 delivery. It says backorder. I guess they'll ship it as soon as they have stock in
