At first I’m not interested at all. However I changed my mind after experiencing these headphones of my colleague. I recommend them to my wife, but at that time there was no strong urge to buy. Two days ago I reserved IPhone X, and my wife said: “Now that you have reserved the phone, why not buy the wireless headphones? The early you buy, the early you can enjoy it.”
My wife is always decisive to purchase. I really agree with the word she says that the earlier you buy, the earlier you enjoy it.

According to official date, every headphone weights 4 g. The best advantage of AirPods is that you feel nothing when wearing it.

So as for the daily commute, such as public transport, walking, cycling, the AirPods is still very suitable for wearing. But if it is used for going out, you’d better to be more careful.

Music can be switched by slightly touching the headphone twice.
Music can be paused if you take off any one headphone, and the music will go on when you put on the headphone.
Compared with earpods, the sound quality of AirPods does not improve remarkably.

The easy way of connecting and quick response show that Apple is good at the linkage of various devices.
The Apple device can be controlled by gestures, which spares troubles of taking out iPhone.
