I was perusing MacRumors this morning for the first time in a while. I clicked on an article about the HomePod and Airpods. It was the HomePod topic that drew me (I’m an Echo fan). But the comments included raves of the Airpods. They had not interested me to that point. Long story short, I stopped into the Apple store to buy a replacement Pencil (the dog ate it). On a whim, I asked the dude if they had any Airpods in stock expecting to be told no. I left with new earphones, in addition to the Pencil, expecting to return them. I love them. They sound great to this non-audiophile and are easy and convenient. I even made an impromptu gym visit to test them out. I’ll be keeping them.
