AirPods: What Are Their Pros and Cons?

AirPods are Apple’s first wireless Bluetooth earbuds and were released on September 7, 2016 together with the iPhone 7. They can be used with iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, and even the Apple Watch. Learn how to connect headphones using bluetooth here.

If you’re interested in buying AirPods but aren’t sure if they’re worth it, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. In this article, we’ll be discussing all the various advantages and disadvantages of Apple’s wireless Bluetooth earbuds. So read on.


  • Superior audio quality

The most important feature to look for when buying earbuds is audio quality, and in that department, Apple’s AirPods deliver. Featuring high-end Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) sound, the AirPods offer audio quality that not many other wireless Bluetooth earbuds can provide. If you love listening to music or watching movies, then the AirPods are perfect for you.

AirPods are not just for music and movies, though. They also have a practical purpose. With their, dual beamforming microphones that are designed to filter out background noise, your voice calls will be clearer than ever before.

  • Ease of use

Connecting the AirPods to any Apple device is as effortless as can be. All you need to do is take them out of the box, complete a one-tap setup, and the AirPods will always be connected to your specific Apple device.

Using the AirPods is just as easy. They will turn on automatically when you put them in your ear, and they will pause when you take them out. You can use them on whatever Apple device you have, whether it’s an iPod, iPad, MacBook, or even an Apple watch.

  • High level of comfort

The AirPods are designed to fit most ear types, so they can be used by just about anybody. They sit inside the ear snugly—not too tight that they cause pain or discomfort over long periods of time but also not loose enough that they constantly fall out of the ear.

Another great thing about Apple’s Bluetooth earbuds is the complete lack of any wire. You don’t have to untangle them when you take them out of your bag, and you don’t have to worry about them getting caught in your clothes and other accessories.


  • Easy to lose

Even with the release of firmware that allowed users to locate their missing AirPods by triggering them to ring via the Find My iPhone app, AirPods are still very easy to lose. After all, you may not hear them ringing if you are too far away.

If you are not organized and tend to forget about your belongings in places like, coffee shops or restaurants, then you are more likely to lose your AirPods, especially since their size doesn’t really make them easy to spot immediately.

You can buy straps for your AirPods, but that would be a few more dollars out of your pocket.

  • Feeble build and design

A lot of users have complained that the AirPods are easily broken, due to the way they are designed. The simple act of removing them from their case and putting them in the ears and vice versa constitutes a significant risk. If you drop them in the process, you can say goodbye to your AirPods because they will most likely be broken.

  • Slightly expensive

At US$159, the AirPods are not the most expensive wireless Bluetooth earbuds in the market. However, they’re certainly not the most affordable either. Owning AirPods is not necessary, and their somewhat high price may turn off some users.

There are users who also feel that $160 is too much for an accessory with such a flimsy design. They don’t want to pay for something that can break with just one drop.


If you love Apple products and you like convenience and high-quality sound in one package, then you should buy the AirPods. Their easy setup means you can use them on any Apple device without any issue, and their amazing sound allows you to fully appreciate the music you’re listening to.

On the other hand, if you still have Apple’s traditional wired earbuds and they still work, you can stick to those. There’s no reason to spend $160 for the AirPods if you don’t really need them, especially since they don’t really do anything to improve how your Apple devices work.
