    I've had the first gen Airpod since it was launched a few years back here in Singapore. I also own a couple of true wireless earbuds ( Bose Soundsport, Jabra Elite) and have had the chance to audition others ( Sennheiser Momentum, Sony Extra Base, RHA True Connect, Jaybird Run). Other than the RHA True Connect, the Airpod's sound quality's the worst.

    So yeah if you intend to use it for calls and watching videos ( there's zero lag in video streaming) then go get it. Otherwise you're better off with cheaper alternatives that will give you way way better sound quality.

    The only reason I’m getting AirPods is that it’s the best true wireless (and cheaper than Bose) among the non-noise cancelling earphones. I get headaches with noise cancelling ones. :(

    Classic AirPods failure. Lost left earpiece on the plane while asleep. Music stopped but noticed only after disembarking. Now can’t use the other one without looking like a jerk. Besides who listens in mono anyway.

    Should’ve brought the Jabras.

    I have Jaybird X3's and Airpods, sound quality wise, definitely better on the X3's but my problem is that it easily falls of my ears, and if you're using it for a while it gets uncomfortable.

    Thats why I still prefer my Airpods at the end of the day.

    Bought my airpods yesterday ;) You're right, sound quality is not at par with Jaybird X3. Not really disappointed with this since its very comfortable to use and pairing with iPhone is superb. With Jaybird X3, I have to on/off my bluetooth 2x in order to pair it with my iPhone.

    New reports suggests that new AirPods are incoming with all new design and noise cancellation, to be released late 2019 to early 2020.

    Hi guys, any suggestions on a good airpod case that can be purchased locally?

    I bought mine from Spigen but the top cover is now loosening up (after around 2 months only).

    Thanks!

    Elago cases are good. I've had mine for more than 6 months and no issue whatsoever. There are sellers in lazada.

    I own a Jaybird X3, and recently bought Airpods 2. I can say that the sound quality of the jaybird X3 still wins. You can customize different sound presets/EQs to your liking in the the Jaybird app. It is also sealed in the ear canals giving much better sound isolation and bass. BUT Airpods are not that bad etiher! The convenience it brings really matter. I almost don't use my Jaybirds anymore.

    Same situation, the Earpods just fall off my ears. Then I did a lot of research in some forums, the Earpods actually fall off because of the wires that are pulling them while the AirPods don't have that. They also say that the AirPods are slightly bigger than the Earpods and has a better fit in the ear. So I gave in and bought AirPods 2. I have big ears (means bigger ear canals lol) but AirPods fit fine on me. I bought a super thin silicone earbud cover for Airpods and there, I have an even better fit!
