    I want them yesterday! Now I hear they may be delayed until Jan 2017. I want them to be right when I get them but want them right now. Anyone else feeling the pressure?

    Any alternatives to hold me over until Apple gets these out?

    Well Apple is probably releasing the Beats X somewhere this month and they are wireless too and have their W1 chip so it is probably the best alternative right now that features some of the features of the AirPods. They still have an wire to connect both Earbuds so if you seriously can't handle that until the AirPods launch, then the only thing that I can think of are the Bragi Dash but they are expensive... I think around 300$

    I would be very surprised if they're not out before Christmas. Somebody will get fired if it's the case lol.

    Thanks for the input. I can't see spending $300 on old tech. I really feel this W1 chip, or a version of it, is the future of wireless.

    I agree w/ you. I was going to wait for the beat x or get the air pods. Then I check jay birds site. The freedoms are great and have the newest hardware for BT.

    Update: I'm returning the freedoms and going to wait for the beat x.
