Often imitated but never duplicated - Apple AirPods continued to be one of the most popular tech accessories of 2020.

Your AirPod wireless charging case holds multiple full charges for your ear buds and has more than 24 hours of battery life. Each charge delivers up to five hours of play time and three hours of talk time; when not in use, should be kept in the charging case to ensure you never miss a call, a podcast or a song.

Since the AirPods are paired to your iOS device (like your iPad, iPhone or MacBook) you’ll receive a push notification when your battery is running low. When your charging case battery pack is low, simply connect the case to a power source using the included Lightening cord.

What other people are saying

“I have been using various wireless & bluetooth products for a while. I got these yesterday and they are amazing. They automatically turn on the second you pull them out of the case. By the time they are in your ear, they are connected to my iPhone and are ready to use. In my iPhone, I can configure each ear to do a specific task right in the phone settings without any special software,” one shopper wrote. “I double tap my left ear and I activate Siri and I can double tap my right ear to play/pause whatever I am listening or watching. I went on a walk and there was a light breeze. I called someone on the phone to see how the noise cancellation was and they couldn’t hear the wind.”

“Some folks think that if you're sporting Apple's wireless earbuds, you are just trying to ‘look cool’. While you will look awesome with these bad boys, that's not the reason to buy them,” another Amazon shopper said. “They are the high-quality type of product you'd expect from Apple. Even though they're very lightweight and feel like they could fly out of your ears at any second, they are surprisingly sturdy and have yet to come out uninvited (unless you forget to take them out whilst taking off a shirt)....They last a good little bit but never fear those long uses... Here's a quick battery warning: if you do not return the buds to the charger, they will die. The case, however, can recharge them for several different uses. I probably use them at least 3-4 hours a day and can get through almost the entire week without recharging the case. This model has the wireless charging capability as well, so if you're down with that tech, you're set.”

Verdict

If you’re a loyal Apple product user, you’ll probably enjoy the benefits of wireless ear buds that allow you to easily pair with multiple devices with ease.
