Are Airpods Worth It

Many people are asking the question, “are airpods worth it?” and there is no easy answer. To get a clear idea of whether or not they are worth it for you, many factors need to be considered.

There have been times where I’ve wanted to throw mine across the room because they were so frustrating but then other days when I’m happy with them.

In my opinion, if you want them and can justify the price tag, then go for it but do your research first!

The AirPods are just one of the many Apple products that have been released recently. With so much competition in the headphone market, it is difficult to determine if they are worth their $159 price tag.

In this blog post, I will break down some of the key features and benefits of these wireless earbuds that might help you decide whether or not they are worth it for you!

What are AirPods?

AirPods are a wireless headphone system from Apple. They’re designed to detect when they’re in the wearer’s ears and automatically play sound. The AirPods communicate with a host device wirelessly, via Bluetooth.”

The AirPods are made up of an H1 chip that runs on the Bluetooth specification 4.2 LE (Low Energy) and other parts for encoding and decoding audio streams at CD-quality bitrates 44.1kbps-48kHz. 

The specs for this H1 include an ARM instruction set processor, storage space limited to 7MB, 128KB Flash memory (with 1MB/s per second data transfer rates), 384KB RAM, and 2MB dedicated space.

Why do people buy them?

They buy them because they’re stylish.

The Apple AirPods, with their minimalistic design and clean pairing process, are the perfect headphone for a tech-savvy individual with a need for style. 

In addition to this, these wireless earbuds have an extended battery life of up to 5 hours and offer high fidelity sound quality so that you can enjoy all music in its best form. 

One might say that they were designed specifically for our world today–where people want it all and want it now. And if you think about it like that, then maybe even some people who don’t enjoy Apple products would give the AirPods a try as well!

Do AirPods work with other devices (iPhones, iPods, etc.) 

AirPods work with any device from Apple that supports Bluetooth.

If you’re using an Apple product, as long as it has Bluetooth capabilities, you should be able to connect your AirPods without any trouble. 

Remember, though, that because the headphones are wireless and don’t have wire-like other pairs of headphones, they use a lot more power than traditional headphones, so they require regular charging.

How much does it cost to replace a lost or broken AirPod?

AirPods are expensive to replace because they are usually sold in a one-earbud-per-pack, making it impossible for the average person to purchase a replacement.

In stores that carry them with both earpieces included, you’ll find that they tend to range in price from $159-$399. 

And unless you have AppleCare+, which covers all of these costs, responsibility free on your yearly device subscription plan, or purchase an additional 2 year warranty at checkout (which can cost upwards of $29), replacing the lost/broken one will result in an out of the pocket expense.

Are AirPods Worth It?

Many people have said that the Airpods are worth it because they’re wireless, come with a built-in microphone, and last for up to 5 hours. The sound quality is surprisingly good too! And not only do these headphones work well with just an iPhone or Apple product (like your iPad), but also Android devices as well. 

Some other features of this excellent headphone set include hands-free phone calls by simply double-tapping on one earbud and Siri activation if you need help finding something quickly without having to touch your device.

The design is sleek, so there isn’t any cable mess while using them; the charging station can be compacted into either a small disk shape or two long pieces, making storage easy.

AirPod Features:

Do you like listening to music on your phone when working out? If so, the AirPod might be an excellent option for you. The best thing about these headphones is that they don’t fall off while doing exercises or running! 

Plus, if fitness is essential in your life and this feature matters most to you, then I have advice – there are several new versions available now with better sound quality than before.

Is AirPods Waterproof?

AirPods are not waterproof and should only be used in dry settings. If you get them wet, they will most likely break. The design of AirPods makes them safe for water exposure up to a certain level.

Built-in Microphones

AirPods have a microphone, but each AirPod can work at the same time. It’s like any other Bluetooth headset in that you can use it for calls and talk to Siri or dictate with a voice to text. 

The quality of the mic is not excellent, but it’s good enough.

The AirPods have two microphones; one on the outer and the other on the inner. Why are there two? I’ll get to that in a second.

Quick Pairing via Bluetooth

AirPods turn on automatically when they come out of the case and pair with nearby devices.

Pairing for the first time, hold the “pair” button, and you should be able to connect via Bluetooth. Once paired, they will automatically connect to the device once opened from now on.

Active Noise Cancellation

AirPods have a noise-cancelling feature which filters out the constant background noises to help you hear better.

One of the main purposes of this microphone is to make sure noise cancellation is working by checking for and adjusting to environmental sounds coming in.

AirPods with their microphone and noise cancelling abilities are a strong case for replacing your old wired headphones.

In addition to being wholly wireless and noise-canceling, the AirPods Pro come in three volume levels.

How to Find Your AirPods?

If you lost your AirPods, there is an app that can help you find them. Install the iOS Find My app and select “AirPods” from the “Locate a nearby item” list to see on a map where they last were charged.

If you’re looking to purchase AirPods, make sure that the company’s warranty covers accidental damage. Apple sells a new replacement for $69 in case anything happens to your original pair.

Where to Buy it?

Amazon has the AirPods in stock. Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy are all excellent places to buy them as long as you order them from one of their websites.

And they have leverage for doing so because people can walk into any store to see what other products that retailer might be selling them and then come out with new stuff without making a purchase.

So if you do your shopping from your iPhone or iPad, don’t go looking for the AirPods while sitting outside an Apple Store, which I’ve seen happen more than once.

Conclusion: 

The AirPods are a great invention for those who don’t want to bother with wires and enjoy the freedom that wireless headphones offer.

They have an average battery life of 5 hours, but they can be charged wirelessly in their case. To summarize, if you’re interested in cutting out cables or already own Apple products these might be worth it.

If not then there may be other options better suited for your needs!
