I’ve been using AirPods since the first pre-production units went out to reviews (and were later recalled, as they had some kind of hardware fault. I’ve always liked them, but recently I’ve really begun to like them, even though the sound quality isn’t brilliant (and I have wonky ears which lack the requisite anti-tragus which makes them fit properly.
Why? Convenience. AirPods are incredibly convenient as a pair of headphones that I can always carry with me, which pair with my Apple devices instantly, and have really good battery life. I can happily wear them in my ears for a long time, something which isn’t true of my (nicer sounding) over-ear headphones.
