What the hell they are just up for sale now. Everything went from "info soon maybe" to "order now".

Edit: Ordered with AppleCare+ for way too much money since I'm a sucker.

I really love how they explain in excrutiating detail these features that have been fairly standard in mid-end BT earphones for a good few years now. It's classic Apple.

I'm glad the folks that buy Apple-only are going to get these features now because they kick ass and the regular Airpods were just not up to snuff in features anymore for their intended audience.

I already have Powerbeats pro that I use everyday and they’re great, especially for passive noise isolation but I’m interested in how these hold up, will wait for reviews

Ordered on apple.com. I've used my original airpods since release and they work perfect. Amazing for the gym. Can always return if shit

Price seems about right. Glad to hear about the pressure-balance venting, that might alleviate some of the discomfort people feel with in-ear pods (including me). The tech is likely top-of-the-line given Apple’s lead in silicon. These are going to dominate Christmas sales.

Very interested in these with the active noise cancelling. Will need to wait for some impressions on how well it performs, but if the noise cancelling is good these are a definite purchase for me.

Note: The Wireless Charging case is mandatory; for comparison, the AirPods with Wireless Charging SKU is $200.

BTW RIP colors/black AirPods once again. Gotta wait for AirPods Pro 2 or whatever for that

How dare they make a higher end version of a wildly popular, unanimously praised product. And they’re charging EXTRA MONEY for it? The fucking nerve.

Seriously, I await reviews. I can’t see these having the fit and audio quality I’d need to be interested, but I’d love to be surprised.

These sound pretty great, tbh. $250 is too steep for an impulse purchase but these are definitely going on the wish list for when I wanna treat myself to something.

They also seem pretty feature-complete to me, unless Apple's going to add a gig or two of onboard music storage at some point.

looks cool, but I'll pass for now. Noise cancelling would be nice and I thought I'd get these, but I'm cool with what I got with the airpods now, and am just not in the mood to toss $250 at an upgrade.

Plus, it doesn't come in black. :(

Ordered! The orginal airpods fit me perfectly. I'm hoping these are similar since it's almost impossible to find earbuds that stay in my ears.

Honestly I don’t see what this offers that isn’t better than the Powerbeats Pro I upgraded to.

They look nice. Now I’m torn between these or the PowerBeats Pro
