The first thing I want to talk about is my AirPods. I was pretty skeptical about them, but I had a pretty decent sized gift certificate to Best Buy and I’m basically a slave the to the Apple so, you know, I had to try them.
Y’all, I was not only not disappointed, I was honestly astounded. It was like I had surround sound speakers instead of tiny earbuds. I kept taking them out to make sure I wasn’t losing it. In order to pair them with my phone all I had to do was put them near each other and then my phone asked if I wanted to use them. So seriously, holy shit, easiest Bluetooth pairing in the history of Bluetooth pairings. And again, the sound quality is something else. I was concerned that they wouldn’t stay in my ears if I was moving around, but they fit really nicely and use the tension of the angle against my jaw to stay in place. I mean, if you’ve used any set of earbuds ever you know it’s a shit time keeping them in your ears so I was super nervous that one or both would constantly be falling out but no, my friends, not at all. They stay perfectly in place with no hassle. It’s unbelievable.
A quick double tap to either earbud and you can activate Siri on whatever device you’re using them with (or answer a phone call). I have tried the Siri function (to skip a song) and it worked wonderfully. I have not yet tried the call feature but I’m sure I will soon just to see how it goes. I’m pretty curious about that. I don’t spend a lot of time on the phone in general and when I am on the phone there is a pretty good chance I’m in my car driving home from work so that isn’t a feature I would use often but it would be nice to see if it worked well.
I am just so very, very pleased with them!
