    ^great review there bro, battery life is also as advertised for me, dropped 20% after an hour of use on apple music streaming so the 5-hour real time use in right on. maybe even longer if you dont stream music and have it on local storage. Good to know it really is fast charging, was surprised also the battery charge went up very fast after only about 10 minutes.

    Another thing worth mentioning is that the automatic pause/play when removing one of the airpods works on video apps too, used it on infuse video player and it works on my ipad pro and iphone7+. The automatic pause/play is also compatible on youtube.
    On the mac, VLC also pauses when removing one of the airrpods but does not seem to resume play when i insert it back.

    Dropped by Digital Walker and they called all branches. No stocks yet. Dropped by iStudio Gateway too. No luck there too.

    Email Airyn now!

    I'll probably get mine this Friday. Although I have QC35 lined up as one of my next purchases (need to save more. lol), I think for daily use, the Airpods should be fine. Like at work, I don't want people to see a big ass headphone on my head, and cables irritate me. Eversince I got an el cheapo bluetooth headset, I've been spoiled.

    I've lost my charging case and Apple in the US requires me to ship my airpods and box to my sister in Virginia so they can sell to me a replacement charging case?! Wow!

    Before I got the Airpods, I was also thinking about the Bose QC35 and the Sony 1000X. The price of the AirPods is about 1/2 or 1/3 of the price of those two. So, for daily use (at home and in the office), I agree that the AirPods will suffice. I also agree that wearing big headphones in the office and in the gym would not be appropriate.

    I'll just think of getting the big headphones next time.

    ^ That could be a problem; if the charging case gets busted or lost, there is no other way to charge the AirPods. They'll just become an expensive ear ornament.

    ^for sure it can be covered with warranty if it gets busted... but losing it is of course a different thing, just like losing your phone or any other gadget for that matter.

    @wattleferdz - if you get a new one bro just so you can have a case, just look at the bright side, think of it as having two extra airbuds if ever you lose one of them hehe

    Is there any other way to charge our airpods? There should be another way.

    Yikes! Hopefully that's only temporary measure in lieu of very limited stocks. It's going to be a huge detriment having to deal with such inane method.

    A possible worry is that even if that does eventually happen it might be limited only to regions with Apple Stores. :unsure:

    that's unlikely to happen bro, given that this is apple and the airpods are officially sold here. might just be a supply issue, given that its technically not on display at local stores yet as they have limited stocks. when i got mine last week i was told only 5 arrived for that store, to be distributed to their branches who had reserved units. They dont even have a demo unit that's why the sales guys were also eager to try it on when i opened my airpods at the store, hehe
