I recently reviewed the new AirPods from Apple. To read the review, Click HERE to find out why I was blown away by these and still am.
Tim Cook went on record to say AirPods were a runaway success and based on my views and others, it does not surprise me that these are so successful.
“Now according to a report by Slice, the AirPods made up 75% of all sales in the USA in December 2016. Before the launch on December 13, Beats occupied 24.1 percent of online revenue for wireless headphone sales, according to the report, with Bose following behind with 10.5 percent, then Plantronics and Jaybird with 7.8 percent and 7.45 percent respectively.
For the period after the launch, Apple suddenly became the dominant wireless headphones brand, moving from having no share at all to occupying 26 percent of the market. Revenue derived from Beats wireless headphones dropped down to a 15.4 percent market share during the same time, and though Jaybird and Plantronics dropped down to below 3 percent each, Bose managed to improve its standing to 16.1 percent.”
So it seems and comes as no surprise that out of nowhere, Apple is likely to soon be, if it isn’t already the number one headphone manufacturer in the world!

Established and loyal customer base is very large and most buy any new Apple product available. I hear audio quality is not great.
Audio quality is good actually. Not the best. It’s flexibility and in use ease adds to the experience. You should get a pair Jah.
No thanks. Prefer to wait for Earin M2. Real audio focused ear pods.

Hi Jah. They look interesting and obviously their in ear canal design will have advantages in terms of isolation. They do not offer the same duration of battery life nor is there any mention of which bluetooth version they are using ? Do you know ? You and I both love high end audio, and whilst the AirPods are not audiophile grade, I really hope you get a chance to try them. Apple offer a 14 day no questions asked returns policy. I had similar reservations about these before I got mine btw.
