    I'm really thorn, i love how there's no cable whatsoever and how simply the connect...it's just the fact that they look a little weird. I think I would be a little embarrassed to wear them..

    ..but at the same time they're so practical...I'm really thorn

    :rolleyes:

    Ok please don't order them so I'll have a chance. At $160 these things are going to be harder to get than the Apple Pencil last year.

    I'm going to order the new beats when they become available, cheaper and better sound quality.

    Also they don't look like toothbrush heads

    They look horrible I'm sorry. Design wise are the worst earbuds I've ever seen. Ill stick to my jaybird freedoms thank you. Apple could of made these look tons better and with actual eartips that form to your ears.

    I'll definitely get a pair - I hate wires and have been using Jaybirds BlueBuds X1 for a few years but they still have a wire. My employee discount shows a price of $142 for the AirPods, so I get to save a few dollars. I'd prefer a black color, but will take the white ones for now.

    I still have a [like new in box] Apple Bluetooth headset from about 2008. It's that little black aluminum one they sold for only a few years. Even back then they had the best iOS integrated features and connectivity. Only problem was the low volume level.

    Yes. Don't know for certain I will like them, but I'm definitely willing to be an early adopter on these.

    Was going to get them but for $150, I'd like headphones that have volume controls (i.e. Don't want to use Siri to raise/lower the volume nor do I want to reach into my pocket to use my iPhone to do that).

    I doubt I'll invest that kind of money in a pair, since I rarely use headphones. My biggest issue with the lack of audio port is having to use my auxiliary cord in the car on long trips to play my music and needing to charge during that time; otherwise I doubt that would ever be an issue for me.

    I guess the Yukon will have to be upgraded to one with Bluetooth. The hubby will be thrilled! ;-p

    Not buying them since I haven't used headphones in probably 20 years.

    Honestly, I give a s*** about what people think about how they look; I will probably get them.

    I love the way they work among different devices; Moreover, I already have the powebeats (wireless), which I use a lot, and they look prehistoric compared to the new Airpods.

    Nope. Earpods don't stay put in my ears. I suspect these Airpods won't either.

    They won't stay in my ears :( I need to get something though. I don't want to have to take a lighting pair for my phone when I travel and a 3.5 pair for my laptop. So its time for me to go wireless. But I don't know if I want buds or something over the ear.

    The ability to charge in a protective case and removing from your ear to silence sold me.

    Plus you can use 1 in either ear as a BT phone headset.

    Simplified connectivity can't hurt?

    I wonder if small dabs of silicone would help?

    I've tried all sorts of possible solutions to no avail. My ears are just weird. In-ear works best for me.

    These are literally perfect for me. For work, I only have one ear bud in my ear, so both of these will last all day. Plus I can take calls on them and switch between the ipad and iPhone. Perfect!

    We'll see, but probably not. Seems like they'll do pretty much everything I want except provide good sound quality. I would have rather paid an extra $100 and had them really invest in that.

    I'll still buy some Bluetooth headphones this year. I'll probably just get something from Sennheiser instead.

    I only hope the first batch not sold out too quickly. Won't bet on that though.

    Also, just using one at a time(different ear, of course) doubles your usage time to 10 hours. I've thought of this as well when I need to be a little more discreet at work while on the phone or,listening to music.

    That sucks. Remember when Apple used to,sell those foam coverings for the original earbuds?

    Those helped greatly in keeping the buds in your ears. Slippery buggers!

    At first I was thinking about it....but I have a pair of power beats 2. The verge review said they kinda suck sound quality wise and are just the box headphones with no wires....so I was like ehhh maybe I'll skip them. Then john gruber said in his review their awesome and way better than powerbeats so now I'm torn haha. Decisions decisions.
