With the Apple 7, Apple announced the new wireless headphone known as the Airpod. And while Apple is touting it as the next big thing we would respectfully like to disagree. Here are some of our issues with the Airpod.
It's like $10 for headphones right now, which is great because sometimes you lose them or break them. But Apple wants you to pay $160 for something that you're even more likely to lose or break. And they don't even come anywhere near Beats by Dre.
They look like a less-cool Bluetooth, which we didn't think was humanly possible, but somehow it is. We've already learned from There's Something About Mary that you don't want to have something white dangling from your ear.
The first rule of feminine products is that you're not supposed to stick them in your ear. Apple is known for their cool, sleek designs. That is, until they decided to make their headphones look like lady products. At least a tampon still has a string!
What the hell, Apple? As if having two Airpods that you could potentially lose wasn't bad enough, there's also a charger that's also the perfect size for losing? Apple is really stacking the deck against us here.
Charging your headphones has never been a thing that mankind has needed to do in the past. So why is it suddenly a thing now?? Let's face it; we're going to forget to do it because it's never been a thing we've needed to do before.
13. They're Too Small To Let People Know You Don't Want To Talk
One of the glorious things about headphones is they telegraph to everyone around you that you don't want to talk to them. How are you going to stop weird dudes from hitting on you or strangers asking you for directions when you're wearing tiny Airpods? You're not. That's how.
