Apple may have taken away our headphone jack, but in return they've given us Airpods - the future is well and truly here.
The pricey (£159) wireless headphones are the epitome of Apple - slick, subtle and understated in design while saying a huge amount about any wearer of them.
Clearly a love to hate type of item, they certainly seem like a solution to the annoying issue of tangled headphone cables (and allow apple to make room for other things), but there's some concern about how they'll work in messy real life.

Whole point of airpods is to train humans to be comfortable with a persistent voice in their ear, probably Siri, short of embedding in head— ಠ_ಠ (@MikeIsaac) September 7, 2016
Wonder if we’ll see people walking around with old fashioned EarPods with the cables cut off as fake AirPods…— Jan Dawson (@jandawson) September 7, 2016
