Apple makes promises about its new products that easily cause uproars around the world, coming into the spotlight in the tech arena. On the other hand, it is also important for people to assess whether these promises measure up or not. Recently, the new AirPods have become the subject of public scrutiny.
Numerous people showed concern about whether these wireless headphones are going to be suitable for day to day activities because, to be honest, not many people are going to spend almost $200 in a headset that they will not be able to take back home after a hectic day, according to 9 to 5 Mac. Although Apple noted of the device's top-notch quality and durability it made no claims of it being waterproof or even shatterproof. To check this, a YouTuber who goes by the name of "EverythingApplePro" has made a video in which he experiments with the new AirPods.
The Apple AirPods Water And Drop Tests
In this video, the YouTuber dropped the AirPods from his height. Apparently, the wireless headphones still seemed to be working normally after taking these falls. After the fall tests, the Air Pods went through a bathing session.
Even when fully immersed in water, the headphones responded quite well as they could even be used underwater. This does not mean that users can take a swim wearing headphones. The new water-resistant feature is only effective in dealing with sweat in the long run. Lastly, the daring YouTuber had the courage to give his AirPods a half an hour trip to the washing machine with a detergent. The Air Pods came out sparkling and surprisingly intact.
Are The New AirPods Worth Purchasing?
It is safe to assume that these AirPods are entirely suitable to carry out physical exertion while having them plugged into ears, according to iPhone Hacks. Apple, this time, has certainly lived up to its reputation but there is still a price limitation for most users. Why would a user not want to buy soundproof Skull Candy wireless over-the-ear headphones at the same price?
