Apple AirPods are the true wireless headphones your ears have been waiting for and your brand new iPhone desperately needs. Every iPhone, from the iPhone 7 to the iPhone X, lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack and no one wants to carry around an adapter ot Lightning EarPods. AirPods are your best solution. Apple’s fully wireless Bluetooth earbuds deliver more or less exactly on what the future has long promised. Of course, that doesn’t mean that they’re the perfect product.
Excellent battery life, seamless connectivity, and surprisingly competent audio quality can’t overcome the fact that these headphones rely almost entirely upon Siri for controlling audio playback, and that’s unlikely to ever be the most convenient way of controlling a portable music player.
