Everyone has a different headphones preference. Some prefer the ones that go over your head and others like the ones inside your ear. I am particular about my headphones, as I don’t like when they go too far into your ear. I was nervous to purchase Apple Airpods as a result, but I am glad I did.


Airpods are great because they are wireless and work through Bluetooth. I like this feature when working out because I don’t have to worry about the wire getting tangled on my hands or in my equipment.


These headphones are small and don’t take up much space. The fact that they are small is good, but also bad because they are easy to lose. They could fall out of your ear while walking or you could misplace them, so take caution.


They may be small, but they are mighty. The quality of the sound is good; they can get loud. Sometimes I only use one and still achieve good volume.


The Airpods come with a charging case, which holds a charge for days. When your Airpods die, put them back in the case and they will charge pretty quickly. The life of the actual headphones is pretty good, but the charge doesn’t hold for more than a day.


Although the Airpods are a bit expensive, they are worth it.
