What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Apple AirPods Wireless Headphones
  • I was concerned about them falling out, I can't make them fall out fit is great.
  • I really like how they feel secure in my ear! Great sound quality!
  • These AirPods were for my son who works out a lot. He said they are so comfortable and never fall out of his ears during a workout.
  • The air pods fit perfectly. I don't have to worry about wires from the phone or behind my head.
  • Love how it fits and the sound. Last a long time and charges pretty fast.
  • These work great but the design and fit are horrible.
Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Sport Headphones
  • Light weight great sound easy to pair with phone. A must buy
  • I personally, could not see myself jogging with them In my ear, because of the weight in my ear, but for everyday use and even with your mobile device, I recommend these, if you are looking for quality and sound. They are worth every penny/dollar!!!
  • Each of the buds is separate. I used the standard set of tips that came already installed on them and they fit just fine.
  • have a hard time getting ear buds that fit. These fit well, and sound great!!
  • I also figured they would fall out and get lost (especially in my ears where traditional earbuds never stay in) but they fit well and are really secure.
  • Could be more ergonomic (cannot lay your ear on a pillow)

What customers say about "Features"
Apple AirPods Wireless Headphones
  • Has great sound and best feature is battery life. Small,sleek and great fit.
  • I like the sound and lack of wires. These were never proposed to be noise cancelling so the ability to hear surrounding noise keeps me aware of rooms where I should be listening but want to hear the music or in a store.
  • These headphones sound better than the headphones bundled with the iPhone. Great quality and easy set up with all Apple devices.
  • For an in ear nice sound deep base and stays in ear no fear of them falling out.
  • The sound quality of the AirPods is incredible. Battery life is great too.
Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Sport Headphones
  • They sound awesome and are light weight with a great battery life.
  • The sound is very clear and it also provides bass.
  • I have tried almost all the other options - these are the best sounding hands down!!
  • These things sound awesome for music and calls, have long range and have great battery life.
  • My only concern as of right now is the sound. It's a bit on the muddy side. I am hoping I can adjust the sound with the settings on the phone.
  • Sometimes the sound drops out when walking and having the phone in the back pocket
