The Verge’s Vlad Savov has finally gotten around reviewing a pair of Apple AirPods. The review comes over a year after the initial launch.
At first, Savov thought that they were just another pair of crappy Bluetooth headphones. Even though he once dismissed the AirPods, he now thinks that they are the best truly wireless earbuds he’s used.
“I say the AirPods aren’t technically amazing, but that’s only when comparing against existing standards for sound quality. In the category of truly wireless earbuds, the AirPods are the best I’ve yet heard. Bragi’s The Headphone and Dash Pro left me underwhelmed, with the latter being especially bloated and disfigured by an overabundance of bass.”
The AirPods have been doing surprisingly well since their launch. The earbuds are one of Apple’s easiest products to setup and use, plus they sound good enough for most customers.
