    Like Trump, I've been hearing things. Not to mention it seems like Apple's attitude is if you want better sound quality then get Beats headphones. Apple's earbuds are where Ive gets to be all about his industrial design.

    Oh, but I did. And I own the stainless steel watch with links band. But I don't think I want the 80s lacquered look with scratches.

    On the other ear, white ones stand out when looking for them.

    Or just make them available as an implantable chip connected directly to the auditory nerves.

    I couldn't care less about the battery life of AirPods when they are sitting in their charging case and not being worn!

    Or perhaps this story is simply poorly written. Didn't Apple say at the launch event that the AirPods case contains a battery able to provide multiple charges?

    I think the black Airpods will be here eventually. Definitely ordering a pair of these on day one. It will be a hit item for sure. I think they be sold out in under an hour.

    Yup, if you pop them back in the case when they're low, the case holds enough juice for 24 hour operation of the Airpods.

    This artist is talented. However, the tips would be a stainless color and not likely gold or any other variant.

    Further proof, if any was needed, that color is too subjective to quarrel over..... one man's trash is another man's preference. Personally I'm still waiting for a sparkly, luminescent, mid-blue hued iPhone, but with 2017's iPhone8 rumored to be a bezel-free, all-glass design, that blue color may not happen for a while, if at all.

    An optional different 'feature color' for each new iteration of the iPhone would be a nice distinguishing mark in years when there's no complete re-design. Would also satisfy the 'look at my new iPhone' crowd lol.

    Yes if you pop them in the case for 15 minutes you get 3 hours battery life.

    My preference is lights.

    Blinking lights.

    Separately controlled with a Siri command.

    People in front & back would know when I'm making a turn.

    Great for crowded city streets.

    Wow, even though they are still functionally lacking that black color makes you realize how HIDEOUS the white ones are.

    Matching pairs are good...iPhone + Airpods color.

    No one wears just one sock and another sock different color do they?

    Why waste time doing a 3d model when the real ones are out. Just take some photos and change the color to jet black.
    --- Post Merged, Sep 15, 2016 ---
    why? because he put a jet black paint on a 3d model of something apple already released in another color lol
    --- Post Merged, Sep 15, 2016 ---
    is that the jet black version? the hd quality of the pic is amazing btw, great artist sure to get hired by apple.
