    Default Apple's new wireless earpiece

    Apple's wireless earpiece, are they parts of the package when you buy new iPhone or you got to buy them separately?

    You will need to buy the Airpods separately when they are released in October.

    They are completely optional, therefore price is irrelevant. For $159 you will get bluetooth earpods that will perfectly work with your iDevice.

    They also come in a case that you charge them in, and the case also holds a charge, so you can charge them without being plugged in as well.

    If you compare that price to other quality Bluetooth earbuds it's not bad. My Jaybird Bluebuds X headphones cost me about $170, the Samsung IconX cost $199, etc.

    If you compare sound quality and functionality at that price range, Apple is horrendously over priced for the lack of functionality and poor sound quality. Jaybird even has them beat with battery life.

    You're paying for the unique connection style and charging case and of course both the Apple name and bragging rights. I am sure it will be an immediate sell out. All that being said, there are better BT headsets to find for sound and voice quality at a cheaper price. Now all that being said, for fast connection and iPhone integration w/o on/off and pairing, none will match. So it's a toss up! I find I don't use my BT that much as it requires me to turn them on and then wait for the connection. Plus the ones I have are still "wired together" so that's a hassle. These are individual, so that for me will be unique. However the apple ear buds don't fit my ear well. For that reason alone I may skip these all together and continue to use my wired in-ear headset(s).

    It's an optional purchase. It is not necessary to have them in order to use and enjoy the device.

    So, if the price is "too expensive" for you, then choose not to purchase them. Easy enough fix.

    Exactly. You don't have to buy them. There are a bunch of options. Functionally you may find the $159 is worth it for the features -- but try them out first and decide.

    I would think they will come with some type of strap in the event they fall out of your ears. Too expensive to let them fall and break!

    TC I love apple but if you been a fan for a while you should know NOTHING is cheap with apple. They are a higher end company with high end products. But I mean most people here are (at least the ones that buy iphone every year) spend like a 1,000 dollars on phone with no concerns at all. I am probably one of the few that have not to spend 1,000 on a phone here ha. So 160 isn't that bad considering, but there are other options if you don't think they are worth the money. I know I am considering buying them but I will wait for reviews before I do so.

    Don't think so because it won't fit in the case they come with.

    Spigen offers a strap already, that may be of interest to you:
