    So I have been buying and selling Airpods for awhile. Made enough to finally keep a pair. I was never really sold on them because the Earpods do not stay in my ears without EarHoox and didnt think running or working out and picking things up off the ground sounded like much fun at all.

    SO yesterday I snagged a few pairs and thought I would finally open one and try it out. I had some foam covers and threw them on and they fit like a glove in my ear. They feel awesome. I have not put holes in the foam yet for the sensors but will do that tonight. I ran around my house and left my phone in the lowest level, never lost sound at all. Controlled everything through my apple watch while doing laundry etc. Totally digging these things so far.

    Got crazy and decided to try a workout with the foam on and alot of jumping around and moving up and down and unfortunately they do fall out. HOWEVER, I just grabbed my earhoox from my earpods and BOOYA no more falling out. SOLD AND NOW I AM A BELIEVER

    Now how am I going to carry around foam and earhoox? What a pain in the ass, then I remember I had this old zipper pouch from some Ludacris SOUL earbuds that has a little mesh pocket to hold them. Here is a couple pics, just added a couple Apple Stickers! haha

    Now of course I have a question about how they work

    Lets say I am sitting at my desk at work. I have a dell laptop with bluetooth and I am listening to youtube or something and I get a phone call on my Iphone 6s+ can I swap to my phone to take the call and use the Airpods?

    Scalpers suck, IMO.

    Well, we know now why you had to wait for months.

    I'm being serious. There are enough $10 - $20 options on eBay that are custom made to hold the AirPods. You don't need to repurpose some leftover case; and the Apple sticker...

    If it wasn't for @iStockNow I would have had to wait until March 8 (6 weeks) to get my Airpods. Meanwhile, Scalpers are going through multiple units just to make a few bucks here and there. I hate Scalpers.

    Not in favour of the scalping but I am impressed that you managed to own numerous pairs and managed not to try any of them.

    OP's first sentence was a mistake to post on macrumors. I read your first sentence and went straight to the comments. I've been loving my airpods since I got them on launch day.

    I have had mine since release day, and I was sold on them as soon as I saw how easy it was to connect them to my iPhone and other  devices.. This was all before I even heard the sound quality or if they even stayed in my ears.. I have to say though, they have yet to fall out of my ears, or even come close.. This is even with me trying my hardest to jar them loose even a little bit.. Huge improvements over the normal EarPods in my opinion. The sound quality is really good as well.. Now granted my Beats Solos blow them away but for what these are, I have zero complaints on sound quality.. Also I think we are paying that premium price for the W1 chip and it's capabilities. I do wish they would have expanded on that though a little bit.. Skipping tracks, volume adjustments, etc.. I would imagine all of this can be done based on however many taps on one of the AirPods.. I'd imagine that will be a Gen 2 feature. All in all though, they are well worth the cost of admission. I love them and use them everyday.

    It absolutely pisses me off to see tools with multiple packages selling them on eBay. Apple needs to put a stop to that crap. One purchase per person, especially when they launch products like they have lately...several units a month!

    Even two months after getting them loving them like on day 1.

    Totally worth the price.

    I use mine everyday, and have so since release day. It's been a while since I've fallen in love immediately with a newly purchased  product, but these are that product for sure. They go with me everywhere I go. I can't recommend them enough.

    They are worth every penny indeed. They are just so easy to use. They pair so easily with all my devices and the charging case makes it easy as I only need to charge it once a week and my airpods always have a charge. Being completely wireless feels so good. They are incredibly comfortable. As I also have an Apple Watch the lack of controls isn't an issue at all.

    The range is amazing I can leave my phone upstairs and still be connected downstairs.

    The only thing I'd change is adding the ability to use both Siri and play/pause with tapping guestures.
