I took the airpods for a test drive and they sound like dogshit.

Especially compared to a wired earbud in the same price range.

The dental floss case is slick, Apple nailed that 100%. Other wireless bud manufacturers would be smart to copy the charging airpod container shamelessly. It's that good.

I've never had an issue with wired headphones. Maybe I am an exception.

But for the price, Apple should have included 3 sizes of interchangeable tips for a better fit. But even with a better fit (sealing them tighter in my ears with my fingers) they still have a shitty sound. So Apple should have spent a little bit more time on both fit and sound quality.

Airpods have the fit and sound of the pack-in buds that come with the iphone. Meaning both the sound and fit are garbage.

IME people that use any form of Apple earbud do not care about sound quality in the least. And quite possibly primarily listen to Top 40 music.

I buy $1000 studio quality headphones and listen to Phish.
