Sorry for the caps but you all need to see this. I have been an apple fan for 8 years but 2016 has been the worst year for me with apple. iPhone 7 Plus replaced three times due to mic static issues, apple watch returned due to a scuff on the screen out the box and now my airpods that i waited for since announcement! I posted before about the build quality of the airpods and how I was going to return them. A lady phoned me who was so helpful and kind and told me to send my airpods back to her and that she will send me a new replacement pair that they will ensure the build quality is how it is meant to be. Fast forward to today i get my airpods and THEY ARE EVEN WORSE THAN BEFORE! My FREE ones that came with my airpods look better and these just look like a knock off clone that you would get in an alley way or on ebay for £5. Here are some pictures of them side by side and you can clearly see i am not over reacting or being silly here. the plastic even has a slight chip on it out the box. I am so angry and i really do not want to give apple my business anymore and that's so sad to say. I wanted to come on here and show you guys and girls in case you are experiencing the same build issues. And before you say it no it is not the lighting. Lets get a discussion going on here in this thread with your thoughts I will greatly appreciate it. Take Care MM --- Post Merged, Jan 4, 2017 --- Here is a video I also made which may show it better.
