    No lets be honest its inconveinient asf and they sound like trash... nobody wants to admit it, but the headphone jack was 1000x more convenient

                Blah blah blah. The Echo buds are having a new feature using the in ear microphone, you just chatter your teeth or swallow. Obviously not very useful for my ex wife as she always seems to have her mouth full.

                      So the Sony's have more features, longer battery life, better sound quality, better ANC, cost $20 less at full retail price, and yet you didn't mention any of that? *sad face*

                        I have the original model and I must say that after wearing them for about 3-4 hours I get massive headaches. Anybody else getting the same issue?

                          Everyone does it except Apple = that is a bad thing.
                          Apple does it after everyone has done it = oh, but now it is a very nice feature because Apple does it better.

                                    Apple is so behind with everything, there are already hundreds of different wireless headphones that go in ear lmfao

                                      90 dollar fakes are exactly the same as the over priced turds. Y pay 270 when you can get some for 90

                                            The original airpods, like Apple's standard corded headphones could never stay in my ear. I could not even turn my head without the things falling out. Even earpods with foam or rubber ear canal pieces fall out on occasion (even with the largest ear piece). The only ones that work for me are ones that have a piece that goes over my ear to hold them in place

All reviews are bought, there is nothing special about the new ones. And if they tell something bad about apple, the reviewers wont get any future products.

So if you’re comparing the pros to the galaxy buds and sayings it’s a toss up, then something isn’t adding up here.

                                                                                        While I prefer in-ears for sound-quality, the ear-fatigue is very real when they're in your ears for hours on end. I don't get this with the Airpods. I have forgotten Airpods in my ears for an entire day on more than one occasion.
                                                                                        Because of this, I end up having to bring my Airpods along to carry me through the rest of a work shift, since my Galaxy Buds inevitably get too belligerent to continue using long-term.
                                                                                        (And the difference in sound quality isn't nearly as significant as the Apple-hate bandwagoners pretend is the case, so it's hardly an inconvenience aside from the annoyance of needing to carry two sets of wireless earbuds everywhere.)
