    I think these are going to flop so bad, not to mention there are way better earbuds in this category

    who in their right mind would pay that for these?

    They sold out immediately. I predict a massive hit.

    Seriously they went to four weeks shipping within minutes of being put up online - these are going to be one of the most massively popular products in Apple's history

    Memories are nice, but that's all they are. Prestigious

    I'm not a fan of them, but they definitely will be a hit. There's a huge market for them.

    Also ... what other earbuds are better in this category? I haven't seen any other pure wireless buds than can do what these can with this battery life or integration with the OS.

    This is the reasoning that sold me on ordering a pair.

    Ditto. If they suck, I'll return them. But I figured I should give them a shot and worth looking at to review. All the bloggers I trust love them as well (especially for podcasts).

    Yup, exactly. Apple's return policy also motivated me to give these a try.

    Their standard EarPods fall out of my right ear pretty often. If this is an issue with the AirPods, I will likely return them.
