Unboxing | Airpods


Hey guys, the title gave it away right? And you obviously know what this post is about. Frankly, I don't want to jump on the AirPods bandwagon but I guess I'm late for the party? Like I mentioned in this post, I went to the Apple store to trade-in my laptop and asked about my glitchy iPhone ⏤ apparently the motherboard is broken ⏤ and I also look for the HDMI adapter for my tv but it was sold out. So I randomly walked around the store and I was like, "you know what? Just wrap that one for me please." while pointing at the square box with AirPods image plastered on it. Demons took me over, I swear ⏤ and adding irresistible, cute AirPods cases to cart on Aliexpress even before I bought the AirPods, was not helping either.

As soon as I got home, I stare at it, pondered a bit and reflecting my mistake.

*scratching my head vigorously*

Okay let's not do that, Tqa. Don't feel bad, enjoy it, you deserved it, it's your own money, you earned it. I decided to use it even though I hate earphone with earpods design because it hurts my ears pinna or  crus of helix to be exact after more than half an hour of using, and I preferred in-ear earphones like my Sudio Vasa because it is super comfortable and it block the outside noise completely as if I'm in my own world. 

One of the reason what I like about bluetooth or wireless earphones is that I am free to move around without having to be extra careful about my clumsy movement. I do bullet journaling most of the time and I write a lot so sometimes it can be a little annoying when I accidentally stained my earphone wires or accidentally cut them (it happened before) so that is a plus point for me.

I also did a fit test with all sorts of positions and situations like wearing AirPods while carrying my nephew, laying down, running, aerobic and walking around mall for 15 minutes. I am impressed how both pods fit in my ears perfectly and didn't feel it would popped out of my ears because I read AirPods most common problems are:
  1. AirPods doesn't stay in your ears
  2. Battery life keep decreasing, lesser and lesser.
  3. Connection glitch between multiple devices
  4. One pod stopped working after 2 months
  5. Random speaker drop (or stop working for good). Most users spent more time exchanging and troubleshooting with Apple Support reps than they DO using the AirPods.
As of now, I have no said problems above, I seldom use it because at home I use the cheap earphones and I use the Sudio Vasa in the car or whenever I commute from one place to another. Hopefully it won't cause any problems in the next 2 months.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━


I have to admit that I like the design and the outer appearances but I know myself, I'm a little clumsy so unlike my other earphones, I won't be using this to sleep or laying down watching movies on my bed because I know I will lost one or the other between my bedsheets and my bed frame. I won't risk it. The sound is okay, I still think my $18 bucks earphones that I got from a bookstore sounds better than the AirPods and it's got amazing bass too, the cheap one. And one thing for sure I need a case asap because the charging case scratches easily.

In conclusion, if I have to be honest it's not worth the money. Buy yourself Sudio Tolv or Samsung Galaxy Buds for far better value and sound quality. So that was it, if you guys planning on buying one, don't listen to me, I'm always like this, unhappy about my purchase for the first few weeks, I wasn't happy when I bought my Macbook Air either but in times, I learned how to use it and I like it. Not sure about this one still but hopefully it last longer than 2 months. But still, I will enjoy this aesthetic wireless pods until it can't be use anymore.
Thank you for reading. Much love, T.

    1. Ha'ah barang2 semuanya overpriced. Mostly tak berbaloi kalau beli kecuali laptop.
      Kalau harga under 6k tu for me still reasonable tapi kalau dah cecah puluh ribu or just simply atas 6k, itu dah mengarut.
      AirPods ni pun salah satu barang from Apple yang mengarut hahahaha

  5. I received Airpods last year for Christmas and since then I don't think I've gone a day without wearing them! They aren't perfect and I have simar problems like the ones that you mention but I think they're very convenient for my lifestyle. ♥

    1. You're so lucky to receive AirPods for Christmas. So far, I am loving it. I really need to buy the eartips cover because it hurts my ears after more than half an hour of using. Everything else is great so far I did not encounter the connection glitch at all.
      I try to refrain myself from using it too often, scared I might broke it hahahaha
      So I only use it when I'm at a public place like the library, on the train, the mall or something. But at home I use my Sudio Vasa or the cheap no-brand one.

      But one thing for sure, I agree with you on it being convenient in some way for our modern lifestyle ❤️

  6. wow! Harga tak pernah tak murah..features pun menarik. high end tech of course harga pun high :)

    1. dasar kapitalis kan? Tapi itu jugak yang dibelinya hahahaha
      Jujur cakap high tech yang tak berapa nak berkualiti shouldn't have that kind of price.
      They should make it lower macam harga Sudio tu kira okay lagi.
      Tapi alhamdulillah so far takde masalah lagi... yet.

  10. wow harga dia!! hahahahha! mesti sangat berkualiti ni...suka jugak kalo benda wireless ni...senang keje, kucing pun tak gigit wayar...hahahah

    1. Harga kapitalis 🤣
      Berkualiti tu dalam 80% sebab senang rosak, jujur cakap tu yang tak berani nak pakai selalu.
      Mesti kena ada yang earphone biasa untuk kegunaan harian.

      Tapi Tqa setuju pasal kucing tak gigit wire tu. 3 earphones tqa rosak sebab kena gigit dengan kucing.
      Cuma kena elakkan daripada budak2 pegang, takut masuk mulut and tertelan.

  17. "As soon as I got home, I stare at it, pondered a bit and reflecting my mistake."

    Hahahahaha. This is so damn relatable I kid you not. Why is it that we'd always regret buying things AFTER we bought it? We need help XD

    I agree about the aesthetics of Apple products. Imma work my ass for my wishlist hehe. Wish me luck!

    1. Hahahaha I felt like I made a big mistake but now I don't want to allow myself from feeling like that.
      Just enjoy it, embrace my mistake and not to do it again. Yes girl, we need help hahaha!

      Me too! I still need an iPad Pro and the stylus to go with it. Other than that, I don't need anything else anymore. I'll use what I have until I can't use it no more.
      Good luck getting all the items in your wishlist :)

  20. Ahaha, you're definitely not late! I'll join you with the lateness since I don't use iPhones due to my budget (but also I really like headphone jacks). I also love wireless earphones for the sole reason of not accidentally cutting them and easy movement (probably the only reason why I finally caved and got myself bluetooth ones).

    Side note: Jopping is an absolute bop and I can't stop listening to it!

    1. Yes, be my friend on joining the late party. I'll go with android if I could because I preferred android more than iPhone, mine is a gift btw.
      Yesss yes and yes! That's probably the only reason I could think of and made myself getting a wireless earphones because I couldn't be bother to spend so much money on this stuff but it's a life changing item so I think I'm liking the portability and free movement. I even use it whenever I clean my room without the need to put my iPod in my pocket or blast it out loud on my speaker. I accidentally cut two of my earphones while bullet journaling because it was piled under the papers, I cried so hard hahaha

      It is! Tbh, I thought it would failed but man, the song slapped! It was on loop for 2 weeks hahaha
