Alongside the new iPhone 7, which as you know doesn’t come with a 3.5 mm headphone jack, Apple last week introduced a new pair of wireless headphones called AirPods. Featuring a futuristic design, impressive battery life and no shortage of advanced sensors, Apple’s AirPods are intriguing if not downright controversial.
The primary concern regarding Apple’s new earbuds is that the design doesn’t appear to be user-friendly. To this point, many have pointed out that AirPods — by virtue of each earbud dangling precariously from each ear — will inevitably be lost, misplaced or perhaps even stolen with ease. In turn, some have opined that Apple’s AirPods, while seemingly a step forward, are in practice a disappointing step back.
