Apple’s wireless earbuds, aptly called AirPods are finally for sale and shipping now. The company announced the availability of the $159 in-ear audio devices on Tuesday with a shipping date of Dec. 22. Apple introduced the wireless, Bluetooth, touch-sensitive ear buds in September, but then missed the October ship date for unspecified reasons.
The AirPods look a lot like a larger wireless version of the traditional EarPods Apple introduced four years ago. They can play continuously for about 5 hours on a single charge and the floss-holder-style case holds roughly 24 hours of additional charge. While designed to work with the iPhone, AirPods also work as Bluetooth audio gear for non-Apple products.
