    @rdy0329 If I may ask, How long have you been using your airpods for working out in the gym? Did you encounter any issues with it when it gets wet? (Because of our sweat) I decided to buy the Bose Soundsport wireless instead of the Airpods 2. Because of the power mac staff that told me RE: That a lot of Airpods users have issues when it gets wet because of sweat. I hope you could enlighten me on this one. (n) Thanks in advance :D

    P.S. Other users who use their Airpods 1 or 2 for working out can also share their inputs.

    First case of someone swallowing his AirPods. A male tourist inadvertently jumped from a boat into a lake with his AirPods on and in the course of swimming about gulped down the left pair.

    So he goes to the Genius Bar asking what to do with it and he is told that he’s better off asking at the Pharmacy for some strong laxatives, and a warning not to please ask for a replacement by bringing it back to them.

    True story. Go figure.

    Works fine for me on 5 KM runs outside. Haven't tried it much in gyms or indoor workouts but should be fine except maybe if you're unusually extra sweaty.

    Wow! 5 KM is something already! I guess the airpods are also capable of being wet. I just hope I don't get into a buyer's remorse anytime soon with the Bose Soundsport. (n)

    Works really well, sound quality hasn't changed since I bought them. I've only ever have them fall out during intense HIIT cardio where sweat was a huge factor. Strength training (lifting) routines don't make them budge at all.

    I also have a friend who loves cardio that tells me it stayed on for most of his 1-2 hours runs outside.

    My 1st gen Airpods seem to be dying a natural death. Even at full charge, one or both Airpods gets disconnected just after a 15-30 minutes of use and sometimes less than that. I have to put them back in the case to reconnect, just to get disconnected again

    I've already tried re-pairing them to my iPhone and even reset them numerous times. No choice now but to save up for the latest model

    Protecting something that wont last 3 years is me being extra AF.

    Left - Gen 1
    Right - Gen 2

    I like that it went well with the case I ordered.

    In my case it started on the right. But now either one disconnects at random

    it has to do with the batteries of the airpods dying out...I experience that randomly too. but it happens more often when my airpods charger is drained and even with the airpods themselves with 100%. the charger is a middleman in pairing the 'pods to the iphones or devices it connects with.

    Are the 2nd gen Airpods and charging case backward compatible with the 1st gen? I have I defective 1st gen and might be getting a 2nd gen soon. If my 1st gen charging case still works, it'd be nice to have an extra as backup
