Apple AirPods Review: Paired with Android

Adding additional gestures would be nice, as they only support a single one at this point. Apple might add extra gestures (like a single-tap) with future firmware updates, we’ll have to see.

At AU$229 (US$159), the AirPods aren’t cheap. For that sort of money you can certainly get headphones with better sound quality, but as a compact set of truly wireless headphones, the AirPods do a great job, even if you use them with an Android phone.

The Apple AirPods can be purchased from Apple and other retailers.

What I Like: Excellent battery life; Reliable sync between earbuds; Faultless with Android

What Needs Improvement: Only one gesture; no battery indicator on Android
