Apple AirPods as Christmas Gifts

Enjoying audio without being tethered to a device is possible with the Apple AirPods. With the Black Friday online deals running on eBay, this is a great opportunity to get your hands on the AirPods you always wanted. If your dad loves to listen to music or talk on the go, but hates messy wires, the Apple AirPods would be the best Christmas gift for him. They will work with any Bluetooth-enabled device. The AirPods Pro variant offers a customizable fit and is resistant to water and sweat. You can add these pods to your Christmas basket, along with other useful accessories. Check eBay for various new and pre-owned options and pick the one you love.

Can Apple AirPods be used with other devices?

You may assume that AirPods can only be used with Apple devices. This is due to the AirPods integrated W1 chip. The truth is that the W1 chip only improves the performance of authentic Apple AirPods but doesn't do anything to prevent the AirPods from working with other devices. They will work with any Bluetooth-enabled device. However, when you use AirPods with Apple devices, they feature added functionality.

AirPod Pros versus AirPods

AirPods are available in two different versions. The AirPod Pros offer a customizable fit and are resistant to water and sweat. Standard AirPods feature a universal fit and are not resistant to water and sweat. The Pro version also features enhanced controls via a force sensor that is located on the stem. These controls allow you to pause, skip tracks, and take calls with just a tap of the stem. The AirPod Pros also feature active noise cancellation, where the standard model does not. The battery life on the standard AirPods is rated for five hours of listening time on a single charge; the Pro model offers 4.5 hours.

What unique features do authentic Apple AirPods offer?

New or preowned AirPods are unique in how they connect to devices. After the initial setup, all you have to do to connect the AirPods to your Apple device is to open the charging case within range. The integrated W1 chip allows for this easy connection. The W1 chip also helps to manage and extend the AirPods' battery life. Additionally, AirPods will automatically connect to any device that shares the same Apple ID. Another unique feature is that they will stop playback if they are removed from your ears, and you can change their settings so they will only send sound to one pod if you're wearing them asymmetrically. This makes it easier for you to stay aware of what is around you or keep track of your media when you need to take the AirPods out.

Buying used Apple AirPods

Used authentic AirPods are a good option if you are looking to save money. The original AirPod models may meet your needs for a lower price. There are multiple used AirPod options on eBay. Browse the selection and determine if any of the listings will satisfy your needs.
