This week I've finally got hold of some Air Pods. Actually they were bought for me by my children for my birthday last month but there was a lead time of a few weeks from when they were ordered.
Having used them for a couple of days with my iPhone I have to say I am very pleased with them. They do look a bit silly but I don't have to look at myself so that's not a problem.
They are held in a case that looks a lot like a container for tooth floss. The box is also the charger and takes an Apple Lightning cable to charge it up. The first time you take them out a message pops up on the phone asking if you want to pair them. They are then automatically paired with any device using the same Apple ID - i.e. my MacBook and iMac.
As soon as I take them out of the holder and pop them in my ears they are connected to the phone. If I'm listening to something, it auto pauses if I take one pod out of an ear.
The fear is that they'll fall out. They seem to sit quite firmly in my ears and I don't feel at all concerned that one will fall out.
Overall, I'm delighted with them.
Anyone else on the forum got Air Pods? If so what do you think of them?

I tested the airpods with a phone call today and it worked fine. The person on the other end said he could hear me without a problem.
I also walked around the house with the phone being left in the lounge. While not a castle, it isn't a small house and I could move more or less anywhere and maintain connection to the phone so I would say that the range is 30 feet or more depending on walls, floors etc. More than enough for any normal user I would imagine.
