    I dropped the right airpod 4 times and the left one once, in the past 27 days - since I bought them on May'1 2017. Never dropped the case though. As for me, I dropped them while removing a shirt or while taking them off the case; all while I was indoor, all from about. 3 - 6 feet height.

    Not sure if I'm being careless or if this is common to other people as well. I've seen the video of everythingapplepro where he does a drop test and way more than that; so I guess these babies are pretty durable. I'm not worried in that.

    I'm just curious here about other Airpods owner, if you guys have dropped your pairs yet. Have you ?

    I dropped mine once. No damage at all. Apple uses a higher Grade of durable plastic, so they would be difficult to break physically, aside from the internal components. The case on the other hand would worry me if I dropped it, mainly being the cover coukd break off. Fortunately I have not dropped that either.

    The pods themselves are light and won't sustain regular drops. Maybe from the Empire State Building they would be damage (someone please film that). The case it self dropped and had a small little dent. Not big enough to notice. I put a skin to make it less slippery.

    Dropping the pods themselves, I would be concerned about dropping it and not be able to find it like a drainage hole. But the times I've gotten them knocked out of my ears were when I was changing out of my sweatshirt. Solution: take off pods while changing.

    I haven't dropped mine yet but I wouldn't be too concerned if I did. The case however is a different story. I'd be pissed off if I damaged it. The buds themselves seem durable enough to me although I have been extra careful while in the kitchen. I would hate to drop my $159 investment into a greasy pan.

    Each AirPod costs $69.00 to replace and the battery case is also $69.00 to replace if lost or damaged. Surprisingly, I thought the battery case would be more costly.

    Dropped case and airpods many times. They do look worned now but working fine. Once I dropped the case in my bedroom and one of the airpods ended up under my bed and I almost had an heart attack when I opened the case and one was missing.

    I've dropped my AirPods on the ground a few times, just got a few scratches, but they still working normally so far. I'm more afraid with someone stepping on them when they fall on the floor lol

    many times. I use when when I drive my Vespa around under my full-face helmet. Taking the helmet off has dislodged the pods many times. No damage yet. (P.s. I've figured how to take off with disrupting, and in general, the pods are great for motorcycles and biking as you can easily use just one).

    Only one of them, and from a 2.13 ft (65 cm) height. No damage.
