I’ve been using AirPods for about eight days. Feels great without the cord, and sounds good across lots of podcasts, music, and video. They stay in while smashing tickets, eating a meal, washing dishes, taking a walk, or riding a bus. I’ve also worn them successfully while lying in bed for a short period of time. They won’t stay in if I fall asleep, which I expected.
I’m usually around a power source, so I haven’t thought of battery life in depth. However, air travel is in my future,1 and I plan to leave my Sony MDR-7506 headphones at home to free up space in my backpack.
Looking at Apple’s product page, I haven’t used Siri with them yet. Perhaps I need to find some podcast episodes for very simple ideas. Suggestions welcome!2
A few times, I mentioned to Amy that wearing them makes me think of something from an episode of Black Mirror. Pretty trippy.
Overall, I dig them! 👍🏾

I was an AirPods skeptic but a coworker convinced me that once I started using them, I wouldn’t doubt them anymore. He was right. They are especially awesome on a train (to and from work), not having to wrestle a wire anytime I shift on a crowded train. And the seamless integration from device to device is so cool.
