    Theyíre incredibly over priced IMO. For me, the price of £200 doesnít justify their advantages. Theyíre small, easy to use and wireless. All great pros. But the sound and comfort compared to alternatives in that price range is noticeably worse. Iíve only used these pods once, trying a friends. I wasnít impressed. A huge step down from my Sennheiser on-ear headset that was £80 cheaper!

    When Iím most likely to use headphones, Iíll be at home or will be going on a long journey. In either case the inconvenience of having to carry a larger headset is not an issue, Iíll just use the rucksack Iím travelling with. My regular weekly commute to uni is only 30 mins long, I donít see the point in these pods when I can just use the regular headphones or find space in my bag for a better headset. Certainly not for £200.

      Youíve just reminded me of another plus, apart from charging from the box, the box and earphones are small enough to just pop in a pocket

      If you’re going premium for a no wired headset, might as well go all in with the no wires experience!

      I use them for a max of 2 to 3 hours in a day, no need and I have charging wires all over the house

      Didn’t see the point at first. Now I love them. Great for running as well.

      Love mine, use them mostly for sleeping, and sometimes in the office.
      Sound quality is fine imo, there are better wireless buds out there, but it's not bad by any means.

      Looking forward to v3 though with potential noise cancellation, then I can ditch the big n/c cans used on the train.

      Sound quality is fine but you're paying for the wizardry of the wireless chip they've put in them. They work seamlessly.

      But they don't fit in my ears so no matter what I think of them, Apple aren't getting my money!
