Apple-Designed Wireless AirPods Are Now Available to Purchase

airbudsOn Tuesday, Apple announced after much anticipation that the Apple-Designed Wireless AirPods are available to order online now from apple.com. Apple will start delivering them to customers and arriving at Apple Stores, authorized resellers and select carriers next week. The Apple-Designed Wireless AirPods are currently priced at $159.00 which includes the charging case and you can purchase them here. Please note that AirPods will be shipping in limited quantities at launch and customers are encouraged to check online for updates on availability and estimated delivery dates.

freedomIf you are not keen on the AirPods but do need wireless earbuds I reviewed two different types, Jaybird FREEEDOM Wireless Earbuds and Rowkin’s™ Mini Wireless Bluetooth® 4.1 Stereo Earbuds, that may peak your interest. I use both earbuds daily and I like the variation between the Jaybird FREEEDOM Wireless Earbuds and Rowkin’s™ Mini Wireless Bluetooth® 4.1 Stereo Earbuds.

Jaybird FREEEDOM Wireless Earbuds are wireless Bluetooth earbuds but they do have a wire connecting the earbuds to each other. row-pennyThe Rowkin’s™ Mini Wireless Bluetooth® 4.1 Stereo Earbuds are truly wireless as the earbuds are only connected to each other via Bluetooth and the same goes for connecting to your mobile device.

Below is detailed information on features, specifications and how to set up AirPods for your viewing pleasure.

Knows when you’re talking.

A voice accelerometer recognizes when you’re speaking and works with a pair of beamforming microphones to filter out external noise and focus on the sound of your voice.

Knows when you’re listening.

Optical sensors and motion accelerometers work with the W1 chip to automatically control the audio and engage the microphone, giving you the ability to use one or both AirPods. They also enable AirPods to play sound as soon as they’re in your ears.

Setting Up and Tapping Feature:

By opening the charging case near your iPhone and with a simple tap, AirPods are immediately set up with all the devices signed into your iCloud account, including your Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. The Apple-Designed Wireless AirPods have advanced sensors to detect when AirPods are in your ear and can automatically play and pause your music. Double tapping on AirPods activates Siri, allowing you to access your favorite personal assistant to select and control your music, get directions, make and receive calls or perform any other Siri task.

Power and Battery Life: 

airbuds-batteryApple-Designed Wireless AirPods‘ has new ultra-low power Apple W1 chip, which enables AirPods to deliver high-quality audio and industry-leading battery life in a completely wireless design. AirPods deliver up to five hours of listening time on one charge while the custom-designed charging case holds additional charges for an industry-leading total of more than 24 hours of listening time.

The iPhone 7 has definitely changed the wireless industry by eliminating the 3.5mm jack and I believe there will be more wireless and smart accessories in the near future.
