    All we know right now is "October". The good news is that there's only about three weeks left in October so I'm guessing we'll know more really soon.

    My wife apple and talk to someone live on Sunday and the lady said they would go on pre sale next week. Then shipping the following week. I wanted to double check so I chatted with apple and they said they did not know and Apologized what was said. So I don't know if Apple was playing dumb with me and accidentally told my wife. Needless to say I gave them a piece of my mind.

    Anyone hear any updates lately? Besides the January launch, I mean. I really hope that these aren't pushed back that far.

    I haven't heard anything but I am not really believing Jan. I am checking everyday just in case. I am really looking forward to these, I hope I am not disappointed when I do get them.

    I just had a writing session that I started with my old Solo2s. After about 20 minutes they started to hurt my ears, so I switched to my EarPods. To me, the EarPods sounded much more lively. This got me more excited for the AirPods. I can't believe I liked them better!

    I plan on getting two pair but now it's being reported December. I wish I could get concrete evidence of them being released

    I agree. I just wish he had a date to prepare for. Between these and the snapchat spectacles just showing up randomly, I can't take it.

    If they don't go on sale soon I am going to be looking at different products like Erato Apollo 7 sure it cost more but I am so sick of waiting and Apple won't give a word out about when they might go on sale. The only hope is maybe black Friday but I doubt it!

    Here is something kinda interesting, I put out a tweet to applesupport, tim cook, and Apple saying that if you did not release them soon I would have to go elsewhere and find another product. I have done several of these type tweets. But this time I got a response from applesupport saying to be sure and check (they gave me the link) it goes to the store. Maybe it is typical response from them but they have never bothered to respond to me before, so maybe that good news. I don't know maybe I am being optimistic about it.

    Apple really botched this launch. I'm sure they are fixing a problem which would have been better than releasing something that was broken, but the hype seems to be dying here.

    Cult Of Mac has a news release saying they will be released within a couple of weeks. Sighting the source within the following statement:
    "The note obtained by MacRumors doesn’t give an exact date, however the AirPods may hit shelves by the end of 2016."

    I noticed they are no longer on the front page. Maybe its just for that red stuff. I don't think they will be out this year, I have heard so many different things.
