    Wait. Are you trying to say that if you buy an airpod it will come with a regular case and if you want wireless charging you have to spend an additional $69!? Why!? When they are selling the current case at the same price of $69 already!? I’m disappointed since I’m planning to buy the airpower once it comes out and the airpods, thinking it will have wireless charging by default.

    maybe simply because not everyone who'll get the airpods will also get the airpower charging pad. but maybe in the next revision of the airpods, they will include the wireless charging case by default, as an added/new feature. ;)

    Perhaps it would be an upgrade option when you buy an Airpod like with increasing the RAM of a Macbook when you purchase.

    More likely built-in TBH. Future Airpods will come with the Qi-case as default and you can just take advantage of it if you have Qi-pads. Lightning port is still below it anyway.

    Beyond the Box in Robinsons Manila had some yesterday too. Grabbed a pair.

    These are great. They aren't as awkward as I thought they would be. The experience is pretty seamless. Sound quality wise - I find them to be a little better than the EarPods (which isn't saying much) but for everyday use, it's more than decent.

    Congrats to new users. Thank the bigger cut out at the back of each AirPod for better bass response.

    How are the airpods resistance to sweat? Any reviews from active users?

    I run 3 times a week; 30-45 mins each time. They're ok, I guess, cos it's still working. They didn't slip out as well, too, which was my main concern before.

    Stays put very well unless you sweat like a faucet (happened to me once where humidity + sweat due to workout = slippery earlobes).

    Every other day I do 30m-1hr run without any problem.

    Check out this link. The AirPods are unbelievable. This video sold me into getting a pair.

    I just hope they work on the Mac to iOS, iOS to Mac integration. That would be sweet. I would also prefer to have darker color options in the future. That white color is just a dust magnet. This despite me already using a silicon case for the charging base.

    Have others bought cases for their AirPods case? Can't seem to find any in the usual Apple retailers. It seems like it's a scratch magnet and it's pretty slippery. I wouldn't want it falling out of my pockets.

    I used mine until I didn’t care anymore. Heh. The scratches became the case and the case became the scratches. I clean the AirPods itself though, that’s non negotiable.

    Same here. I do jog everyday, as much as possible, 30+ minutes. I sweat like a pig, and the AirPods are still ok. ;)

    Hello would like to ask, di ba once opened ang airpods, it will connect to your iPhone. Is it true na once you put the buds in your ears automatically it will play music? If it does, Apple Music ba ang default player na magpe play? Can you set another music app instead of Apple Music?

    Thanks. :)

    ^^It doesn’t auto play. It just auto connects back to the last device you had connected it to when you pull it out of the case.
