The AirPods have landed! The AirPods have landed! And despite some inkling that they were imminent, I sadly missed them. Megan was up at the crack of dawn and sprung quickly. Alas, I’ll see them in January. 
But all is not lost. After I tweeted about trying out the Powerbeats 3, Beats was nice enough to send me a pair of Solo 3 Wireless to try as well. While the Powerbeats 3 are a little bulky for my wireless taste (but I could see how they would be solid for runners – one day, one day), the Solo 3 are fantastic. 
Both headphones pair seamlessly and instantly thanks to the new W1 chip – and as someone who has used Bluetooth earpieces over the years, this ease cannot be overstated. But the Solo 3 seem to last basically forever on a charge. Good folding design. And their comfortable to wear. They’re not cheap at $299, but if you’re in the market for this type of headphone, I definitely recommend. 
This sounds like a sponsored post. That wasn’t intentional. They certainly didn’t ask me to write anything. Then again, they did butter me up with the headphones… You decide :) (But really, they’re good.)
