Working Very Nice With My Samsung Galaxy S9

I was very much worried when I inserted in my ear that it might fell off. But no. They perfectly fit within ear and there is no worry at all. One can easily use them while running or while doing gym. Sound quality is excellent. Vocals are superb and bass is also good. Treble is a little down but Bass is more important. It is very easy to use and pair with any Android phone which you are using. Battery is good. I get about 6 hours of listening. And it charges quick. It just takes about 15 minutes to give me 4 hours of music. I do not use iPhone but this is a must buy if you are using any phone. Paisa-vasool product.

Awesome Sound Experience

The design of the Apple Airpods is really good. It may look a bit odd at the first but the grip in the ears are perfect. You can use it either in pair or you can just use in one ear. Connectivity with both - iPhone and iPad is very nice and you do not have to work hard for it. It works with Apple watch as well.

Sound Quality: sound quality is good. Bass punches. Crisp vocals.

What I do not like is the charging case is super shiny and prone to scratches. You have to take extra care for them.

One suggestion: There should be option for pause, play and forward with double tap.

Good Choice If You Are Using It With IPhone

I find the Apple AirPods very useful. They are excellent companion with my iPhone 8. The sound is quite okey. Music streaming works very smooth. Though the noise cancellation is not there but you will not find any trouble even when you are in middle of the traffic. Battery is also quite okey. Overall, I will give 4 out of 5.

Apple AirPods review: Apple's AirPods have improved with time

Look past their offbeat design and you'll find that Apple AirPods' compact size and high convenience factor are a winning combination.

Apple AirPods

Ultimately, the Apple AirPods make me excited for what Apple can achieve for future versions, as the first attempt falls short in some important areas.
