    Ouch, that hurt my feelings.
    All the more reason for you to buy them and share a photo of you wearing them, showing us how it should be done and what it looks like on a handsome person. Oh wait!
    lol

    Enjoy yours --- they'll be on v2 by the time they're back in stock

    I do wish, like others, that they came in more colors than just white. Still, I may eventually spring for a pair. The tech inside does seem pretty cool.

    Worth it!

    My brother has one and has stopped using all his other wireless earphones.

    Only gripe is the volume adjustment. If you are someone who constantly adjusts volume (I know I am) this might not be the right earphone for you.

    Ie, when I do chores around the house I'm constantly adjusting the volume because appliances are all different levels of noisy.

    These earphones make it hard to adjust.

    I use the now playing dock app on my Watch to adjust the volume. I have the double tap set to play pause since I think that is more beneficial than Siri. At least for now

    Double tap definitely the way to go. Much faster than Siri!

    This is a concern for me too, but if there's an  Watch work-around that is good. I do use those buttons quite a bit.

    You can indeed adjust the volume of the AirPods on your Watch by opening the Music app > Now Playing. By turning the Digital Crown you can increase or decrease the volume.



    If you don't have an Watch you can simply use the volume buttons on your iPhone without having to take them out of your pockets.

    I got a nice pair of Sony's for $30. They work great in the gym, pair flawlessly, fit snugly and have great sound. That additional $130 I'd be paying for the AirPods would pretty much only get me the case and siri. Not worth it in my eyes. Now, were they given to me via, I don't know, an iMore giveaway, well then I'd most certainly use them....

    They're not a comfortable fit for me & the fact that they have no controls is an extra turn off. I'm too active to not have controls or a comfy fit.

    Not calling you out, but they were not available on Black Friday. They only went on sale a few weeks ago.

    I think I've had a change of mind. I'm seriously considering ordering a pair of Apple AirPods.

    From everything I'm seeing online - via purchasers and reviews - it seems like AirPods are definitely worth the price. Can't wait till I can get my hands on a pair!

    I know it's not the Apple way, but if they came in BLACK...

    I would probably own a pair already

    The black ones look nice, but a white one is easier to find when you drop it.

    Hmm, I'm seriously considering a pair. Seems the earliest would be February. Then again by then I might just say, "squirrel" and get something else
