The quality of the Airpods is pretty clean and sounds identical to the wired Earpods which comes with the iPhone. The sound is awesome, rich, great AAC sound and unmistakably unrivaled by Apples competitors.
What is even better is that the quality from the Airpods when making calls or talking to Siri is remarkable because the beam forming amplifiers sift through foundation clamor. If you are playing your music but you don’t feel like having the Airpods in your ears, you can place the headphone back in its case while the music is being played. It remains that way until you close the magnetic lid.
