Will Apple Inc. (AAPL) AirPods Fall Out? Tim Cook Reassures Skeptics

Apple Inc. (NASADAQ:AAPL)

Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook has dismissed concerns that the company’s new wireless headphones, AirPods, may fall out of ears and get lost easily. The U.S. tech giant unveiled the new wireless headphones last week at the iPhone 7 launch event. The company faced criticism for killing the old reliable 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7, the company’s latest flagship smartphone.

Apple has replaced the 3.5mm jack with a lightning port that transmits audio data through a powered digital interface. The new AirPods, which can be purchased for $159, are likely to send the headphones jack the way of the floppy disk.

What Cook Said About AirPods

Cook appeared on ABC News’ Good Morning America show. In a wide-ranging and exclusive interview, he told Robin Roberts that he had used AirPods without any problems. Cook said that his company’s headphones don’t fall out while exercising or dancing.

“I’ve been on treadmills, walking, doing all the things you normally do,” Cook said. “You know how you walk around with the earbuds and they’re constantly getting caught on something? You never have that problem.”

“I have never personally had one fall out,” Cook said in a small video clip posted by ABC.

The new wireless ear buds, which the company revealed last week, are scheduled to go on sale in late October.

New Apple AirPods

It is hard to understand why Apple Inc. decided to kill ditch the 3.5mm jack. But it seems that the company wanted to show something innovative.

“We do have a vision for how audio should work on mobile devices: Wireless,” Apple executive Phillip Schiller said when announcing the new wireless ear buds. “No one has taken this on and made it easy.”

AirPods is the second wearable device developed by Apple. But it’s not just a simple wireless headphone. This new wearable device is a miniature computer in its own right. It seeks to augment the auditory experience and interaction with mobile devices. AirPods allow a more personal interaction with Siri by allowing you to speak to the Apple’s voice assistant though an embedded beamforming microphone instead of speaking into your iPhone.

Using AirPods, you can get feedback from Siri in a more personal and direct way into your ear. The new wireless headphones are designed to filter out external noise when Siri is speaking to you or when you are listening to audio. Moreover, the beamforming microphones also help Siri to identify your voice amidst a cacophony of sounds.

According to a report on CNBC, Apple claims that AirPods are more power efficient than Bluetooth devices. AirPods also include double tap access to Siri and five hours of listening on a single charge.

“It makes no sense to tether ourselves with cables to our mobile devices,” Schiller said. “Until someone takes on these challenges, that’s what we’ll do.”

Apple Inc. will ship the iPhone 7 with EarPod headphones and a Lightning connector and a Lightning to 3.5-millimeter headphone jack adapter.

In other news, the iPhone maker is facing a lawsuit over its new smartphone’s pre-order system. Lawyers are claiming the tech giant prioritized new orders over Apple Upgrade Program members, who were seeking to trade the new phone with their existing handset.
