    Why puzzling? $149 is more than many can pay. Especially if they have wired ones that work just fine.
    $159. But your point is still valid

    No its not. There's a big difference between wires and no wires.

    I don't necessarily think it's strange but I do think about what a pain it was to worry about that wire hanging down. It would always catch on something and yank the earbuds out. Even my Powerbeats seem like a hassle now. I really appreciate the convenience of the AirPods. I carry them with me all the time. I would never have done that before.
    Ha, funny you say that. Over the weekend I was listening to a radio show. I was using my PowerBeats because the bass response is greater and the music that I was listening to was meant sounded better with those headphones. But the more moving I did I started to feel restricted. I quickly switched over to my AirPods and my anxiety settled LOL.

    That being said, I seem to feel more restricted and confined when using my PowerBeats3 than when I use my BeatsX headphones. So it could just be those headphones. But the wire-free nature of the AirPods really is amazing. They are honestly the worst sounded headphones of the ones I currently own...but the convenience of no wires makes up for it in more situations than not.

    I'd agree. There definitely is. I'd imagine anyone who could afford the spend the money others do on their gadgets would jump to go wire-free. I'd assume the point being made is there isn't anything "wrong" or "weird-looking" about those with wires just as there is nothing wrong with us and our lack of wires. It's simply what works best for the individual and their pockets, lol.

    Big time. But I had the $159 to spend.

    For me it's worth it, those *$)%( wires aren't getting caught on stuff or tangled!

    I still don't care what people think but had a funny experience this week.

    I'm an IT director for a firm with retail stores. I was doing work in a different city where evidently not many have seen these things. A few times I realized the strange looks were those white things and reactions to not realizing who I was talking to or at one point one AirPod in an ear with vendor support while conferencing on a phone or computer at same time.

    I'm still really firm on just buy these and don't care what people think. My right ear's had one drop out a few times but that's not a problem that detracts from the overall greatness.

    With time I'm sure the reactions I've had will go away.

    As good as these air pods feel and work, no I do not think they are silly
