Has anyone broken their AirPods yet due to everyday use? Just wondering they seem very durable at the moment and have not heard how much effort it would take to break AirPods being so small and light.

I feel the AirPods are built very durable. They're lightweight enough it wouldn't damage the plastic casing, aside from what could happen to the internal components. But ultimately, they don't feel cheap or poorly constructed, which are bonded well with the adhesive.

The Plastic seems of that of a higher grade than what other manufactures might use for earbuds.

I have not heard of anybody breaking their AirPods as of yet during a fall.

I think it helps that they're so light that when dropped they just sort of skitter on the floor. I dropped mine in the first week of owning in December on concrete, they bounced all over the place. There's a slight mark on one of them, but they work perfectly and haven't dropped them since.

Love them.

If anyone is interested I found this video from EverythingApplePro. Looks like they can take quite a beating. Definitely more confidence in these for the price.
