    Apple AirPods Review

    I finally got my Apple AirPods which I ordered months ago and finally received. I have to say I am very impressed with the Apple AirPods. Apple is known for very tightly connected hardware and software and the Apple AirPods are no exception. I have to say I almost gave up on the Apple AirPods the 6 to 8 week turnaround time has been going on since January and looks to keep happening the long and short of it from Apple is the AirPods are so popular they can’t make them fast enough.  AirPods, which lists for $159 dollars on Apple site are really amazing and fit the Apple feeling of “it just works”. You take the AirPods out of their box, open up the lid to the case and a pop-up window appears from the bottom of your phone’s screen, asking if you want to connect your new AirPods you press the very large “Connect” button, and you’re done. The same worked for my MacBook Pro.  The AirPods after they are connected every time you take them out of the case and put the AirPods in your ears, a bright ding will let you know you’re connected to your phone. The AirPods feel great in my ears and I can leave them in for hours without any issue.   After testing many Bluetooth devices I got the best response and sound quality while on phone calls from AirPods.

Apple also using noise-canceling tech that uses subtle vibrations to know you’re speaking. All together I think what Apple lacks in sound quality it makes up for by being one of the clearest remote-input devices I’ve ever used.  I make a lot of phone calls and really...
