You can control playback (and even your phone) using built-in Siri functionality.

And there are tap features on the sides of the earbuds so that you can play or skip songs, or answer a phone call.

You get up to five hours of music playback per charge – or three hours of talk time.

And the bundled charging case means you can keep the earbuds topped up while you're out and about.

Optical sensors built into the earbuds let the AirPods know when they're in your ear.

This allows them to automatically pause music playback when you pop one bud out for a quick chat.
