    Guaranteed authentic by Lazada or your money back. And yes, Lazada is an official Apple reseller. This is even cheaper than buying in the US so it's an irresistible deal for me. 2nd hand AirPods (though a bit gross lol) are still selling from 6K-7.5K.

    Been thinking about buying one for a couple of months already so I finally pulled the trigger when Lazada re-stocked today.

    I’m also eyeing to buy a second pair of airpods soon and the price from Lazada is very tempting. Maybe Apple is using such channels to quickly reduce their inventory?

    But I’ll probably hold off until the rumored October event by Apple. There’s still a chance that we might see updated airpods in that event.

    I've been using my AirPods like it's my lifeline that battery for it has become abysmal. Even the charging case can now only achieve two full charges at most?

    I don't think I can wait anymore if the rumoured keynote later this month doesn't bring anything new to the AirPods. :LOL:

    For those who own and are using the AirPods for more than a year now, how's the battery life? I'm planning to buy one if the updated version will not be announced in the upcoming October event.

    Can't believe someone bought my Airpods which I used for at least 10 months. The main reason I sold it was to dispose it while it holds any value before battery degradation. I bought a new one after I sold my old pair. If Apple will release new Airpods this October, we can expect them to be available here by Jan-Feb 2019 so I'm still good using this and sell later on if there are new compelling features. But so far, gen-1 Airpods are too good already. Best purchase!

    For casual listening, one full charge of AirPods is more than enough. I usually end up with, at least, half of the charge before I get tired of listening.

    But the battery of my AirPods have degraded overtime. It can now only hold somewhere 96-99% as a full charge. Then the battery case somewhere between 95-98% full charge. Had mine since January of 2017. Still not bad if you ask me. I will definitely get the next iteration and will keep the current one. I can't imagine selling a used pair.

    That’s good to hear. Do stores allow to fit/try the airpods? Might visit some of our APR shops this weekend.

    I haven't seen a store with a demo unit yet and probably for good reasons (hygiene, and can easily get lost/stolen unless you secure them w/c defeats the purpose of the wireless experience) . They pretty much fit like the wired EarPods. If you have a defective EarPods, cut the wires - that will give you a pretty good approximation of the fit :D.

    After almost a year of use I can say they drain a bit faster now. From 5 hrs for the airpods to 3 hrs. And I need to remind myself to charge the case from time to time unlike before where I only need to charge it a few times per week when I'll remember it. LOL

    This is the main reason a bought a new pair and sold my old one. This device is easily disposable, I think after two years battery life would suffer drastically wherein you can't able to enjoy a good hour of use.

    ^^They ‘feel’ they drain a lot because I use them a lot more these days than one year ago. I’m still at awe with the quick 15-minute charge I get from the Airpod case.

    my May 2017 unit is still going strong. 4 hours of use after removing from case. Not bad. The left one is draining faster than the right. Dunno why, i don’t use mine one at a time.

    Yeah, this is kind of annoying also but I guess it's just what it is.

    My new pair got delivered today. Also from Lazada. Irresistible yung P1,200 discount (o sayang marupok lang talaga ako).

    Hi guys. I have extra airpods, both left and right. Is it ok to leave it uncharged? I just needed the charging case. When I inquired with Power Mac before, the case is P4000 with 3-month warranty. So is the airpod, P4000 each. Si I decided to buy the whole set instead of ordering the case only.

    It is not a good practice to leave devices that has lithium ion battery uncharged for a long period of time as it will negativey affect the battery’s ability to hold a charge. You might just wanna look for second hand cases. Sayang din kasi yung other pair mo.
