    I can confirm that if you want to let someone listen to what your hearing you take one AirPod out and the audio will pause then the other person puts that AirPod in their ear and it starts right back up!

    I don't think this is something you would need or want to do frequently but a pleasant surprise.

    Adorable picture. And yes, this totally works. Awesome for watching a sports game or listening to music while you're waiting for something. :D

    It's OK if it's someone close to you like your other half but regards to hygiene issues I wouldn't want to share them with anyone else even people I knew.

    Did this yesterday.
    Visited my 94 year-old uncle at the veterans home. It is difficult for him to make regular phone calls, even on speaker phone.
    Called my mom - his sister.
    Works great

    Did you try this in a call? It would be cool if two people could use a pair of Airpods to listen and talk at the same time.

    I get you.

    Though, the good thing about the Airpod design is that they don't enter the ear canal where most gunk hides.

    Still, if you know someone who doesn't rate hygiene high on their agenda, I'd direct them to the nearest Airpod retailer instead.
