What is it?
AirPods

My review:

Since their release, AirPods have become another iconic Apple Product, and these days, it is nearly impossible to walk through Harvard Yard without seeing someone wearing a pair. Between the case that charges the AirPods, the ability to double-tap to control your music, and the automatic connection to your phone, AirPods are so convenient and user friendly that even my tech-hating mom loves hers. Additionally, the design is so recognizable that AirPods provide not only convenience, but an indication of wealth and style (see the AirPods Gang memes for an example). While AirPods are not the only wireless headphones, and are pretty expensive products, their style and usefulness makes them one of, if not the most popular wireless earbuds.

Differences in reviews:

The previous reviewer focused more on the functionality of the earbuds, instead of the style of them. They also mentioned the possible design flaw of AirPods being susceptible to get lost.

Previous review text:

AirPods is the newest wireless earphones from Apple.
Whenever you pull your AirPods out of the charging case, they instantly turn on and connect to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac. Audio automatically plays as soon as you put them in your ears and pauses when you take them out. To adjust the volume, change the song, make a call, or even get directions, just double-tap to activate Siri.
The idea of “wireless” seems convenient and interesting, but there is still a design problem that people might be worried if they lose them since they are too tiny to carry around all the time.
