    While I don't expect my ver 1 Airpods to last 10 yrs, just a little over 2 yrs and I'm getting the left-airpod-cutting-out issue. For something so expensive, I would have wanted about 5 years of reliable use.

    my preorder for the airpods 2 got cancelled and refunded by apple HK. over 7 days na daw while ill be in HK on the 9th day. dapat umpisa pa lang sa store pickup may info na sila na 7 days lang para na adjust ko ang date.

    then they have a restocking fee of 15 percent around 1500 PHP. kakainis.

    After experiencing random airpod/s disconnection despite full charge that I cannot even get to half of a song without being disconnected (or at least one them), i don’t think I will buy another pair, nor would I recommend to anyone I know to buy airpods 2. Really disappointed. Hay!

    Same issues with cutting out. I'm surprised since I've never had issues at home with my original pair, only in dense city streets. Not as severe as your situation though it goes away after a while. My real problem is that my wireless charge case randomly stops charging even if not yet full. I'm using a Qi-certified charger and still the same symptoms.

    I've had my airpods for well over a year now and I've never had any issues of that sort.

    My first gen airpods was rock solid, in fact its one of the reasons i kept it a bit longer even though it has average sound... the act of taking it out of the case and connecting instantly with seamless integration on all my ios devices makes it worthwhile... also didnt get cutouts when using it outside..

    How's the Airpods sound quality compare to Jaybird X3?

    My Jaybird Bluebuds X (1st gen) sound better than the Airpods naturally because it's an IEM and the seal blocks out most of the outside noise and enhances bass.

    I do find that the superior convenience of the Airpods makes me use it most of the time, whereas the Jaybird only gets used for my morning jog.

    I really wanna buy and try the Airpods but after testing my old earpods, it easily falls off my ear if i lean at lower angle to the right or to the left.

    The shape of the AirPods are practically the same as the EarPods so if the latter didn’t fit your ears, the wireless version won’t as well.
