  2. Chloe Mills says:

    Anyone else dropped an AirPod and the tops come off😅

  3. The glue is to make it water proff

  4. Ivy Dowell says:

    There are the people who can’t afford AirPods, then there are people who experiment with AirPods and CUT THEM OPEN💀

  5. Ju B says:

    Ha ha! My new pair just popped open last night and the wires are detached. Fixable?

    STFU LEO, Jesus Christ man you’ve been talking for 30 years straight. Let your guests talk.

    So it's like a stick of chewing gum. You enjoy it and use it for a short time, spit it out and throw it away. Except, a stick of chewing gum doesn't cost $160 freaking dollars!

    This video made me find out that my airpods are fake since the inner of it is different

    Might aswel shove the mic up your ass at this point

  11. I thought microphone is down side of the stick.

  12. Who thinks twice about buying these and then is like wait they're not recyclable who cares 🤣

  13. Chris Arnold says:

    You guys are doing this teardown wrong. They are a pair of headphones and you aren't talking about the microphones or speakers. There would be no product without them.

  14. Andrew Kamen says:

    0:30 that eyebrow raise tho lol.

  15. Nati says:

    Wait you telling me not to buy a product cuz they cant be Rec..👀

  16. DougisLive says:

    People throw out batteries every day, there nothing stopping people from throwing these out even if they were recycled.

  17. Why tf is he wearing headphone

  18. CatGods says:

    Am I the only one here watching to see if I can recreate the circuit and turn my wired headphones into AirPods

  19. if they could integrate a replaceable lithium ion cell battery in the new airpods that would improve on the recyclability of the product.

  20. When I heard that only one seam is visible I checked my AirPods and they both have the seam

  21. kicksoffs says:

    No way Leo Laporte, this is where you've been hiding.

  22. PIckeljuice says:

    In short, they're a rip-off, don't buy them

  23. Trip Line says:

    My air pods last just as long as when I got them 2 years ago.

  24. MUFABH says:

    The reason I'm watching this is because power button isn't working!!
    Anyone knows how to fix that??

  25. Roy Abr says:
