    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.

    Genuine question - did Apple actually launch the earpods? I have never seen anyone using them.

    It’s AirPods, and yes, I’ve seen them a few times on others.

    I know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for trouble, I can tell you I can cause plenty. And what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you recant now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will tickle you.

    My running group regularly makes fun of me with my AirPods but I don't care because I personally love them. It's so freeing to run with just my AirPods and Apple Watch

    I haven’t put a cigarette in my ears in years. And the one time I did, I was drunk

    Is it really safe to wear headphones (of any kind) while driving?

    No, and I'm sure it used to be illegal ( maybe still is) because of not being able to properly hear audible warnings.

    lol apologies on the silly question, but having spent a week in Vegas for CES it's actually somewhat a serious one. I saw a number of folks wearing AirPods on the show floor, and more than once (multiple times really) I had friends and colleagues comment to the effect of 'man, do those ever look stupid'.

    What say you? Do you think wearing AirPods makes you look... you know, silly? Or do you think they look hot? Or better yet, do you even care?
    I think they just look great! When I am on a public place, i notice that some people would stare on my airpods. (Maybe they are wondering if its a hearing aid or something haha). Especially when your talking to someone via airpods, it really does capture attention. But with its looks and design, it actually looks nice.

    In my opinion the saggy ear cigarette look is not good. If you combine it with the "ranting to yourself" appearance of hands-free phone use, it may lead to embarrassment and invention by mental health professionals.
