Why did you buy Apple Airpods

Simply more magical.

Longer talk time, Siri with voice activation and the wireless charging case turn the AirPods into wireless headphones like never before. You take them out of the case and they are ready for all of your devices. You put them in your ears and they are instantly connected and deliver high quality, rich sound. As if by itself.

Perfected wirelessly.

Set them up with a tap and the AirPods are automatically on and always connected.1 And using them is just as easy. They'll tell when they're in your ears and pause when you take them out. And they always work great, whether you're using them with your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch.

Siri, the right hand that you don't need a hand for.

You don't have a free hand right now? Just say "Hey Siri" if you need help. You don't have to pick up your iPhone to do this. And with the message retrieval feature, Siri can automatically read incoming messages as they arrive. You choose which contacts to read aloud, and Siri won't interrupt you during a call or when you share a song.2

This is what performance sounds like.

With the Apple H1 chip, the AirPods have a faster and more stable wireless connection to your devices - up to 2x faster when you switch between active devices3, and 1.5x faster connection time for calls.4 The H1 chip also allows access to Siri with just your voice and up to 30% less latency for games.5 So if you play games, listen to music, or play podcasts, the sound just got better.

They know when you hear something.

Optical sensors and accelerometers work together to automatically control your audio experience, activate the microphones for calls and Siri, and ensure that sound plays as soon as you put the AirPods in your ears. You can wear just one or both AirPods and double-tap a track or skip to the next while listening to music.

They know when you speak.

When you talk, an additional accelerometer with speech recognition and wave-bundling microphones ensure less outside noise and a clearer voice.

Lay down.

With the wireless charging case, you can easily charge by placing the AirPods case on a Qi-certified charging mat. That's it. The LED light on the front of the case indicates that your AirPods are charging. If you don't have your charging mat with you, you can use the Lightning connector to charge it.

Little to set up. To hear a lot.

The AirPods connect instantly and the sound switches seamlessly between your iPhone, Apple Watch, Mac and iPad. Easy setup. Magical results.

Shared song, double joy.

With audio sharing, you can easily create a song12, Podcast or another audio stream between two AirPods pairs - each with independent volume control. With your AirPods in the case, just hold them close to the iPhone or iPad you want to share with and connect them with one tap. And if your AirPods are in your ears, hold your iPhone near the device instead.
