    After initial poor reviews, these BT AirPods have nearly nothing but rave ratings and reviews on line.

    Always on back order by 6 weeks, they will arrive in early September.

    My wife sent them back after a week. Didn't stay in her ears when she was running on a treadmill.

    They are the same design as the included wired EarPods. Does she have a problem with those also? I don't, so I should be fine.

    There are covers available for all EarPods to take up some room for a better fit, I got some for my wife, I remember now. 3rd party mostly on Amazon.

    Anyways, I mostly walk, sit, and don't run...

    I think she does occasionally, not all the time. I told her the same thing but she was scared because she had a hard time locating the one that fell and didn't want to risk that again. She really liked them in all other regards (well, except the price).

    Do they have a find-me feature?

    I'm excited about getting them!

    I don't recall. In her case the unit dropped on the running treadmill and got launched across the room into another row of machines. She said a couple more inches and it would've been very hard to pull it out from under whichever equipment it landed under, so it wasn't the inability to pinpoint the location, rather the physical difficulty of extracting it. I think as long as you don't jump & run you'll have nothing to worry about unless somebody bumps into you in a crowd.

    One other nifty feature is the playback stops automatically if you remove one of the earpieces from the ear, so if you drop it you won't have to reverse back when listening to an audiobook.

    I have some tan colored duct tape, in case it becomes a huge issue.

    Duct tape is like the force, can't go wrong with that :D

    I got my AirPods yesterday. I LOVE them so far!

    Sound is super, much better than the wired ones
    Like how they magnetically snap into the charger case.
    Didn't realize that the case, and the buds have batteries, so that's how the AirPods stays charged.

    ""Just works"" connections to my iPhone, watch, and iPad ( and I guess the Mac too)
    So far they are snug in my ear ( so full of wax, that they stay put )
    No more worries about snagging my arm on a wire, and sling shot'ing my phone to the floor.

    Very happy to be wireless! Superb Apple engineering, once again. Well thought out.

    Enjoy! I don't recall thinking that they sounded any better or worse than the wired ones, but they're definitely much cooler.

    I'd say the bass is deeper and the highs crisper. Some reviews agree, others don't. A lot depends on how they fit in ones ear.

    But don't buy them for that reason. It's the wireless BT and new chip is the main feature. No more cord to wind up nor untangle. And can be charging and listening at the same time. Due to Apples cable option.

    The other reason is the beam shaped microphones and noise reduction are high quality too. With the included case power usage is 24 hours.

    They fit well. Here are some $10 options for keeping them in place for those that worry. And an audio review plus the Apple site ad.

    That makes sense, we were listening to an audiobook :)

    That is definitely not an issue for my wife with her old wired headset. She always just gives it to me to wind up or untangle and she can definitely charge & listen at the same time due to Apple's cable option on the 6+ :D

    Perhaps she'll worry about that with the next upgrade. I'll check out the "stay put" links, thanks!

    I really do love these AirPods! Especially in the morning, in bed, I don't have to fiddle with unwinding cords in the dark.

    I did buy the corded ' stay on' at the link above. I can see them working, but not necessarily will I use them much. The AirPods stay in my ear just find. For other, I recommend a spray adhesive shot into your ears

    The cord on that Spigen accessory is a bit stiff or has a memory that feels uncomfortable. Probably some dental floss tied onto the AirPods is just as good of a solution for rough jogging.
