Are the AirPods loud enough for running/cycling?

    I plan on getting these but wanted to know how good they are at keeping outside noise out. Such as when going cycling, will it keep out background noise, such as wind, etc. and will they be loud enough for me to actually hear my music or whatever material that I'm listening to.

    And for talking on the phone, is it good at blocking out background noises, especially wind?

    Yes, I use them for cycling, plenty of volume.

    Suburb roads and bike trails, but with cars around me I wouldn’t want the volume too loud for safety concerns.

    I Can’t attest to any cycling in outside environments, but even for a loud/noisy gym environment, the AirPods are more than sufficient for this. That’s probably one of the strong points of the AirPods is actually the volume in my opinion.

    Providing they fit snug in your ears, they're a great in terms of loudness, yet balance that out by not having noise cancellation which could make things dangerous, as pointed out above.

    They work well for me on an NYC subway which in general has pretty loud background noise.
