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.
