AirPods
Pretty cool.

Has the same issues as the Bose. Bluetooth is such garbage as it has to yield bandwidth to wifi. But if I put my phone in my back pocket instead of my front it magically works better. I guess my remaining chemo'd up teste might now be a wireless signal sponge of some kind.

But they're comfy, they sound good. And best of all they fit better than their wired counterparts.

And no wires.

RE: AirPods
I'll mark on my calendar to check back if you have lost them or not.

RE: AirPods
In this hive of scum and hipsters that is SF I've not known anyone yet to lose one. And I'm the last of everybody I work with to get a pair.

RE: AirPods
I consider it to be an inevitability for independent earbuds that size, no matter the brand.

Granted Apple put a lot of work into making sure the Airpods don't dislodge or get lost, so if the concept of independent buds is viable they will be the one to prove that.

RE: AirPods
Because I know you're all eager for a 6mo update: I'm convinced that these AirPods are all around the best sound making bud-like devices that I've ever stuffed in my ears. Bluetooth issues aside, of course, because every set of bluetooth headphones that i've tried has the same issue.

They're as comfortable as anything. They really do produce good sound. They stay in while running. I don't do marathon sessions of headphone use as my ears have never been able to take it. A few hours and I've had enough of any type of head/ear phone.

And a great added bonus: the case fits perfectly in the watch pocket in my Levi's.

For wireless, in-ear, conveniently portable sound I've tried:
- Beats
- Spiegen
- Apple

Wireless, but larger can style:
- Bose

The only other one's I'm interested in hearing are the Beoplay 8's because my EM raves about them.

But for now I'm happy and really impressed with the overall range and quality of the AirPods.

I'm surprised you haven't lost them yet. I'll check back in October.
