These are the first wireless headphones from Apple! And believe me at that time it was the coolest device)
The first acquaintance begins with opening the lid of a white oval box, it is magnetized, so you need to make a little effort to lift it. Inside, as you can see in the photo, there are two headphones. Each of them is also held by a magnet, so you need to overcome some resistance in order to pull them out. And this is their innovation, in my opinion, before that I have not seen such.
Yes, this is certainly not super) but you need to consider that the headphones are 4 years old!
However, this semi-oval white plastic box is not just a package. This is a charging dock. When the headphones are in it, they are charging, as evidenced by the colored LED indicator. When the earbuds are charging, it flashes red, and when they are fully charged, it glows green. Now it seems that it should be so - and 4 years ago it was Wow!
The leg of the AirPods is quite long, which is quite logical: after all, it contains the Apple W1 processor, accelerometer, battery and Bluetooth module. In the new versions of Pro, the nose was shortened by 2 times, and how they do it is a matter of technological progress) Secondly, next to the miniature speaker grille, there are proximity sensors on AirPods in front and behind. AirPods know when you put them in your ears and when you take them out!
I note that AirPods sat well in the ears, did not fall out with sudden movements of the head. However, when compared with AirPods Pro, they certainly lose in stability.
When you need to connect the headphones to the iPhone and turn them on, all you need to do is open the lid of the docking station, place the iPhone next to it - and right there on the display, look at the window with the image of the headphones and offer to connect them and that's it!) Everything is simple. No need to turn on devices, press a lot of buttons!
After connecting, the window will display charging for both the headphones themselves and for the docking station.
If you take one earbud out of your ear while listening to music, it will stop automatically. This is how the sensors in the headphones work.
Unlike most wireless headphones, there are no parasitic overtones and background noise, such as clicks, pickups, and the like. The very nature of the sound is pleasant and does not cause the feeling that I am using some kind of under-variant of the headphones. If compared with a full-size headset, then the sound is of course so-so, only for calls and listening to music between dashes on the road, they are clearly not for audiophiles) And yes, there is no bass at all) But this is not their path!
As for the duration of work, the headphones can provide about five hours of sound. Decent result for the time!
Over time, the problem arose that they began to reset the wireless connection and it was time to change them, 4 years have flown by) Of course, I chose the Pro version, but more on that in the next review)
Read my review about iPhone 12 Pro Max, of it here
After lying on the shelf for a long time, I decided to listen and compare with the Pro version, and I’ll tell you that it’s like comparing a Ford and a Lamborghini) The way the headphones sit and the way they sound, the old version of course loses(. As they say, the best is the enemy of the good!
In this regard, I reduced the number of stars from 4 to 3, I think that these headphones are already outdated.
My husband bought headphones in MVideo, they were packed in mica. I chose the option with wireless charging (Qi), that is, Apple AirPods 2. The packaging, like all products of this company, is recognizable, with characteristic features: A sample of...
