Enjoy your girly underwear, bud. Design is subjective, the rest of the tech is very good on the airpods.

Not so good after all, because delayed without a release date.

I was talking about feature set presented. Whether they're good realizability wise - we'll just have to wait and see - don't we.

Now this is a proper Apple fan, unlike others who keep trolling and tardin' articles and make Apple fans look bad.

It actually is just a Cook trick to hype up demand before black Friday. He plays the same trick on every product just around launch time. It's blatantly obvious. He did it on de launch, I watch one and just recently iPhone 6 part three. Sad thing is, the sheep fall for it Everytime.

Yet Tim Cook is worth nearly a billion dollars and he runs Apple, and you're a broke dolt with a dead end job. Smooches!

True, also Tim Cook also has many worshipers that'll kiss his arse anytime, just like you.

Mxy, just give it up already. You actually made a post asking people to stop saying negative things about Apple on Apple articles, when you do the exact same thing on Samsung and BlackBerry articles. You're a bigger troll than most people on here. You're the definition of iSheep in a nutshell. You're in absolutely no position to be talking down to anyone.

Right, I'm an isheep. An isheep who has the Nexus 6P as his daily driver. An isheep patiently waiting on the Gear S3. An isheep who is considering the V20. If I'm an isheep, you're a dumb@$$.

Speaking of the Tim Cook arse kisser... Also, comment #20. Read it, and think about how hypocritical you are.

Not my fault if I spoke the truth.

Truth? If you think I'm a Tim Cook arse kisser, then you may have some serious mental issues.

I don't know why people hate on the EarPods. I think they sound ok - this coming from someone with a pair of totem mites and arcam receiver. I'm no audio enthusiast but they are definitely better than many earbuds worth more. Overpriced? Definitely. Should be $99 and that's it.

would have considered if it was 79-99USD, but now, beats X seems to be a way better deal

Love apple for the most part and these things are just stupid. What they need to do is improve the beats
