I totally agree with you on this. I mean, if they had a guitar to headphones directly kinda thing I could almost see the justification, but this really is just another set of BT headphones.

(Marshall headphones are just the brand; the actual company making them is Zound, not Marshall.)

Yeah, easy for these outfits to partner up, allow logo usage, etc.

I bet Fender does get into this, either their own making or lending their logo/name to an outfit already doing it. Just seems like a no-brainer if you follow some of their other efforts over the years.

I'm actually shocked they haven't done it yet.

Was there a recall/repair thing for Pros that addresses "cracking" in the unit? I realize my right bud now crackles bad. Granted, I'm normally using them on the treadmill so I assumed it would be just earwax and bouncing, until I wasn't running and just turning my head for something and heard it. (Never mind that I don't have THAT much earwax going on.

Those of you with AirPods - any version/model - have you ever lost one? In addition to the cost, the other thing that keeps me from going down this wireless road is just how tiny they are. While my traditional, wired earbuds are quite old school, them being tethered together, and then physically connected to my phone (or iPod, back in the day) makes them pretty much impossible to go anywhere. In all these years - iPhones since 2007, iPods before that - I’ve never lost my earbuds. And that’s been with a ton of travel, yard work, hikes, etc.

Every time I get *this close* to hopping on the AirPod train, I always think “I’ll have one of them lost in four days, guaranteed…”. Especially during any sort of strenuous, outdoor activity.

Or does that just not happen? Because they’re tiny and untethered (to each other or a device), does that tend to make you more careful/aware?

If they were $39, I wouldn’t give a rip and I’d already have some. But at $129+, I’ve just been very reluctant/hesitant all this time.

“I can’t pay that for something so small and lose-able!” And so I haven’t.

I've had 2 sets of AirPods, pretty much since the day they were available. Had to replace the original set due to the battery slowly holding less and less charge.

I have never lost one and have a pretty simple rule about how I keep track of them. AirPods can only be in one of two places: in the case or in my ears.

Never set them down on anything. ever. That's how they would get lost. The beauty of them is that you can leave them in your ear while also stopping playback. They can just stay in your ears if you need a minute.

I've never lost mine either. I'm with Kieran on this one, in my ears or in my case. I've had one fall out of my ear once maybe. Knocked out is different, I mean I leaned and it fell out kinda thing. Then it becomes obvious you lost it because noice cancelling stops even if you aren't listening to music.

There is not a recall, but there is a quality program. You can arrange it online through Apple's service webpage, or you can take them into an Authorized Service Provider for facilitation. Expect about a week.

We see a couple pairs/week with the issue.

Any idea on how long that quality program is going to run for? Time is really tight right now but I don't want to miss the option to have them cover it if they will.

I work out daily doing cardio and lifting with the Pros in and never have any issues with them coming out. The original ones were terrible though.

Unlike my experience with the MBP battery this was great for the AirPods. Both got replaced for free even though the left one didn't have a noticeable issue to me. Apparently there is a tester they have and it was tested and failed too!

Two free replacements for the price of nothing.

Having charging issues with my case. I'm not sure if one of the contacts is gunked up or what. Been cleaning it with alcohol q-tips and it's helping. Ordered a small brush too. Not sure if it's that or it's just starting to fail. I work out in them every day though.

Did Apple ever hint to how many charge cycles they are good for? I know mine don’t always disconnect from my phone in the case and as a result they won’t charge. I either have to disconnect them in setting or turn off Bluetooth.

Mine must be 3 years old and I'd jump on new ones if I could justify it, but they still charge well and last a long time. I use them every day!

Depending what the next update is, I might upgrade. I think my case is on the way out though. Might go up to the Apple store next week and see how much a replacement case costs. I believe I saw $49 on the website.

Just saw that the Pros were approaching 1000 days since the last real update. Wonder if these will be updated in the fall events? Seems like all fo the AirPods are due for updates.

At this point I'm actually thinking I would get the Beats set or something like them that doesn't have the stem. I'd like to have the noise cancelling with the ability to wear earmuffs over the top of them.

There’s been rumors of an update this fall. We’ll see.
