What customers say about "Key Specs"
Apple Airpods (curr) Wireless Bluetooth Headset for iPhones with iOS 10 or Later White
  • 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.
  • The sound quality of the AirPods is incredible. Battery life is great too.
  • The sound is good. The pods feel like they might come out during exercise, but they don't. They let in a lot of background noise but that's good if you are walking in the city.
  • This is the best cordless headphone, sound outstanding nice and clearly between high and low frequency is great. I recommend to get this headphone sound better then the one with the cord.
Bose SoundSport (761529-0020) Wireless Headphones, Aqua
  • Initially there seemed to be little bass, but turning up the volume increases the overall frequency range and dynamics.
  • Great range of sound and distance.
  • A strong presence of bass which is totally lacking in many other sets, a nice, balanced frequency range with good instrument separation.
  • I have to say that I definitely like the sound quality and range that I get from the device that I'm streaming from.
  • These stay put while being active and have great sound with a good battery life.
  • Overall the battery life isn't good. The battery drains even after I turn it off.
  • The battery life on the bluetooth head phones does not last that long, but the quality of sound the headphones produce is amazing, far better than other wireless headphones I have owned.

What customers say about "Features"
Apple Airpods (curr) Wireless Bluetooth Headset for iPhones with iOS 10 or Later White
  • Has great sound and best feature is battery life. Small,sleek and great fit.
  • If you are looking for a bluetooth headset... I would say these are about the best I have used. They pair easily and even on devices that are not apple, and apple devices that are not all on the same iCloud account on them.
  • When I bought this I did so after talking to several people about the Bluetooth, but being a truck driver I haven’t found a great Bluetooth that can be heard over the engine, until now.
  • These have been the best Bluetooth head phones I've owned. They sync up so easily.
  • I hated rating the AirPods 3*, because the sound quality is on par with the best. But, like all apple ear buds, they fit horribly, and fall out any time I do any physical activity or exercise.
Bose SoundSport (761529-0020) Wireless Headphones, Aqua
  • Bose is the absolute best bluetooth that I have ever purchased. I am a professional driver and I can hear clearly while driving my truck.
  • They have a crisper sound nfc and are way more secure in ear.
  • Bluetooth and NFC pairing was easy. I use the Bose Connect app for controlling and switching between multiple devices.
  • Bluetooth connection very good and the range is huge. I often forget my phone on the treadmill and realize only much later. No disconnection.
  • Microphone is very loud and clear.
  • Headphones are great! The microphone is not great for the phone in a slightly noisy place.
  • Sound is great but microphone does not work that well if there is too much noise in surrounding.

What customers say about "Power"
Apple Airpods (curr) Wireless Bluetooth Headset for iPhones with iOS 10 or Later White
  • These Bluetooth headphones are great for many reasons one main reason is the battery life
  • Battery life is awesome. The case lasts for about 3 days and the AirPods last for like 3 hours with only 15 minutes of being in the case after they are dead. I love them
  • They offer great sound quality and battery life, they stay in the ear quite well and the storage and charging case is a nice item to round out the package.
  • Battery dies quickly. Use one AirPod at a time to prolong battery life.
  • Love how they fit in my ears but the battery life is very low. I'm not on the phone much at all but by 3 pm they are dead.
Bose SoundSport (761529-0020) Wireless Headphones, Aqua
  • Great sound, very very little time to recharge and battery life last long enough for me.
  • They let you know how much life is left before recharging.
  • I get 5-6 workouts before having to recharge battery.
  • The battery is long lasting and charged in a respectable amount of time.
  • Charge time is quick and lasts about 6-7 hours.
