Apple AirPods

For years now, wireless headphones have been a kind of aspirational product that scrappy entrepreneurs tried to pursue with the help of crowdfunding sites. No longer. The technology has been brought onto the broader market in a big way thanks to Apple’s release of their brand new Air Pods.

One of the most exciting parts about the headphones is the W1 chip. Up until now, just about every wireless pair of headphones uses Bluetooth technology. Instead of going along with the crowd, Apple has managed to build their own proprietary connection from the ground up so as to deliver high efficiency playback while delivering a consistent connection. Instead of fussing around with buttons in order to turn these on, thanks to infrared sensors the Air Pods will start playing as soon as you put them in your ear. Want to talk to Siri to make a call or check an appointment mid song? An accelerometer in the ear buds makes it so you can just tap them twice and make a call. Calls are surprisingly crisp with these, too, due to new technology that reduces external noise. With 5 hours of charging and a carrying case that has enough power to go all day – you won’t end up compromising on either utility quality of sound. You can get these in late October starting for $160. [Purchase]
