Apple decided to release a whole new range of wireless headphones, and what they have come up with is the Apple Airpods. They are wireless, loud, and have good battery life.
These are wireless because the latest iPhone devices no longer have headphone jacks, so wireless is the only way to go. This may or may not suit you, but if you are an Apple fan, then these are a must have.
Is it for you?
If people that are looking for a wireless headset with a charger, then this is a great option. They share the general Apple aesthetic, and are simple to use, with good sound and quality.
Meet the Apple AirPods
These headphones are not intended to replace your fancy studio monitoring headset, or your hi-tech gaming headphones. Instead, these headphones that are intended to be used as a lightweight and low power sound solution. Users can expect around 24-hours of play time, which is excellent considering how light these headphones weigh. If you are not an Apple user, then these might not be the best choice for you.
What we like
The battery life on these headphones is really good, so they can be taken on the road and give you a full day’s use, depending on volume and chare state. Charging the headphones is as easy as placing them into their charging container.
The sound quality is also really good, and sound reproduction is adequate for daily listening. The headphones have a decent bass response, as well as good mids and highs. These are not supposed to be a replacement for your other high quality music headphones, but as a wireless solution, these are really high quality.
What we don’t like
The pricing on these headphones is quite a bitter pill to swallow, if you consider how much a proper music oriented set of headphones will cost you, then you can see that there is not too much difference in terms of cost.
Instead, these headphones are not as balanced or as powerful as a wired pair of headphones are, so using these as a substitute is not advisable. Of course you can use these headphones as a proper musical set, but nothing can beat a wired set of headphones in terms of sound and volume.
Should you buy it?
Whether or not you find these headphones to be useful and as good to use as your everyday musical listening devices is a difficult sell. These headphones, although clear and crisp, would be a good choice for commuters and audio book lovers, as these headphones are really good for voice reproduction as found in speaking podcasts and shows, or audiobooks.
There are no other headphones that offer as good of a battery life as these new Airpods, and because of this, it is a really good choice for an all-day listening. If you wanted to go properly wireless, then the Apple Airpods are the earphones for you. They feature intuitive controls, which are easy to use once you have gotten the hang of if.
