Apple AirPods shipping times finally down to 2-3 weeks

Shipping times for the AirPods are finally down to 2-3 weeks on the Apple Store. The popular wireless Bluetooth earbuds have been on the market since last December, but until recently, people buying them through Cupertino's official e-shop had to wait a whopping 4-6 weeks before they actually arrived.
If you're ordering online, you can currently get the AirPods even faster through retailers like Best Buy, B&H, and Verizon. However, this reduction in shipment times signalizes that Apple is finally getting closer to coping with the huge demand for the accessory.
So, why are the AirPods so attractive to consumers? Well, Apple's decision to remove the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 certainly plays a big role, but we can't ignore the fact that the earbuds are simply a well-crafted product.
A recent study revealed that 98% of people who bought the AirPods were satisfied with their purchase. This can be attributed to their great battery life, the custom W1 chip which improves the Bluetooth connection and provides simple and quick transfers between different devices, as well as their adequate pricing.

Still looks silly being worn. I saw only two people these like something white oozing out of their ears. And this cost some $200+ to like some idiot tech wannabe. I have something that last 10+hours of accumulated music stream than the mere 5 hours claim that these expensive pair can give - without a special charging case.

If you're only getting 30 Minutes from iconX, clearly you are using them wrong. While on that topic can you remind me of the numerous features the more expensive AirPods feature that the iconX don't have?

The Airpods are overpriced garbage. At least the Icon X have fitness tracking, touch controls, doesn't need to use a voice assistant to change songs, has its own storage for music, IP68 rated and has real bass and they actually last up to 4 hours. They were design for fitness users who exercise for maybe 2-3 hours. It wasn't designed for all day usage. Airpods are garbage and overpriced. They do'nt even sound has good as $30 headphones I've gotten off Amazon/eBay. Even bloggers of tech, stated the Air-pods sound no better than the $5 ones included with the phone. You can lie like the dog that you are, but won't change the facts/. Don';t care how many idiots buy them.

Wires on headphones are a right pain but if you remove the wires you're likely to lose them. Wouldn't it be cool if they docked inside the phone instead of the separate case? Always there when you need them and they'll always be charged too.

Meh. Wired is still better. Lots of choices, easy to use, does not need charging, does not get easily lost, easy to buy. Why suffer?

It's cute reading what people who have never used the AirPods think of them.

Like who? YOU?! I've used them with my S8 and they sound just like the cheap ones that come with the iPhone. Especially compared with the AKG's that came with my S8. Apple buys Beats and too cheap to included Beats headphones which are also a joke, but sound way better than Apple cheap Chinese made crackpot headphones.
