Apple AirPods Review

Index

Sound quality on the AirPods wouldn’t wow you – but it is still better than most wireless headsets available. Mids and highs are clear, and bass is just sufficient for me to enjoy low frequency effects. Stereo separation is present and it’s a better performer than the wired Lightning EarPods by a decent margin.

The good thing about the AirPods is that you can even use just one AirPod at a time or use them both to your liking. As long as Bluetooth is turned on, sound will be automatically directed to your device.

Using Siri is possible with the AirPods – though I never really used it in public. The good thing is that the AirPods can also be paired easily with any Bluetooth-enabled device, even if it runs on Android.

The AirPods can give you about 5 hours of battery life on continuous usage, but the charging case (which charges using a Lightning cable) can provide an additional 24 hours of battery life. Everytime you place the AirPods in the case, it will automatically start charging so you wouldn’t worry so much on battery life.

The smart features of the AirPods is what makes it unique, but there is still room for improvement especially with the sound quality. Not that it’s bad, but it’s small size is what limits its performance.

The Apple AirPods is a great wireless accessory to your iOS device. Is it good? Yes. Is it perfect? Not exactly. But the headphone’s exclusive integration with the Apple ecosystem makes it a top choice for users of the platform.
