Often imitated but never duplicated — Apple AirPods are one of the most popular tech accessories of on the market.
Ahead of Black Friday, Amazon is currently offering shoppers the chance to save $11 on a pair of AirPods.
What are they?
Apple AirPods are the wireless alternative to headphones that pair easily with your Apple device without compromising sound quality or performance.
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 people are saying
Apple AirPods have an impressive 4.7-star rating on Amazon based on more than 5,000 customer reviews. Shoppers have commended AirPods on their universal fit and ability to access to Siri. AirPods have received rave reviews for their “seamless connection” and “great sound quality.”
“Gives me the freedom to multi-task the way I never could with regular headphones,” one shopper wrote.
“They are truly life-changing,” added another. “Sound quality is great and charging time is low.”
Although there are thousands of glowing reviews for AirPods, there are some things to consider before you buy. Some shoppers have said that AirPods weren't the most comfortable for their ears, while others said they prefer having a true-headphone experience to cover the ear and help block background nose while using the AirPods in public spaces.
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. However, if you're looking for noise-cancelling capabilities, or don't love the feeling of earbud-style headphones, these might not be for you.
