When it’s time to hit the road, it can be boring just to watch the scenery outside. If you are traveling for several hours, it is a must to keep yourself entertained the whole time — and that is where music comes in.

I love listening to music or watching a movie whenever I am traveling. But as a frequent traveler, cords are a pain. I remember finding my pair of earbuds tangled along with my charger and laptop cords. So imagine my relief and my happiness after trying the Apple AirPods.

A lot of people are raving about the Apple AirPods. At first, I did not want to get these wireless earbuds since I thought it’s ridiculously expensive and I’ll not get the most out of it. But my thoughts changed after getting my hands on them. They work the same as other earbuds, minus the cords. It has better sound quality and is very convenient, perfect for traveling.

Apple AirPods: Overview

The AirPods have a clean and modern design. It comes with a hard plastic case, which doubles as the AirPods’ charger too and easily fits in your pocket. Once you put them in their respective slots, they will magnetically clip. You can either store them in the case or start charging.

The case connects directly to a lightning cable. It charges the AirPods fast and each charge lasts for up to 24 hours.

These AirPods fits most ears yet it feels comfortable to use. You might even forget that you are wearing them.

These earbuds also work as a microphone. While you are listening to music and someone calls you, you can easily transition into talking on the phone.

The easiest and simplest way to pair it to your phone places the charging case with the AirPods inside near your iPhone. Open the charging case and your phone will automatically detect the earbuds. You will be asked to tap a button on your phone’s screen and that’s it — your iPhone and your AirPods are connected.

Automatic Ear Detection

These AirPods are smart enough to detect whether they are in your ears or not. When you are listening to music and you take one of these EarPods out, the music you are listening to will automatically pause. Once you put the earbud back to your ear, the music will automatically resume.

Assign The Microphone Function

Each of the AirPods has a built-in mic but you can assign the function to a specific AirPod. You can use one AirPod only whenever you need to talk to someone via call, Skype or Messenger.
