Apple AirPods Are The Best Purchase I’ve Made In A Long Time

Unpopular opinion: Apple AirPods are better than Apple EarPods, here's why.

Apple AirPods Are The Best Purchase I’ve Made In A Long Time

Apple considers AirPods the "future of headphones," and I honestly couldn't agree more.

Despite hopping late on the bandwagon, I recently treated myself and bought a new pair of Apple's AirPods. Though it has only been a little less than a month since I've owned my AirPods, I'd consider myself in love. I'm constantly flaunting my AirPods off while also applauding Apple for how well of a job they've done (for once).

Let's start with the looks. First impressions are…everything. However, to your dismay, I actually didn't see the AirPods first, I saw the charger…and it's unlike any other charger I've yet to see. Essentially, its a capsule for AirPods, and is all around seamless: light in weight, durable, AirPod magnetizable, etc. My first impression on the AirPods themselves was that AirPods and EarPods look…identical, disregarding the obvious fact of AirPods being cordless. I still haven't found any major differences in appearance and I don't really think I ever will. People like familiarity, so it's not a surprise that Apple designed air-pods very similarly to EarPods.

Eventually, I couldn't look at them much longer before wanting to witness my AirPods for myself. It took nearly no time to connect them to my phone and invalidating that, I also tried my laptop. Ultimately, AirPods are very flexible to connect by Bluetooth to any device. Not to mention, a fancy sound is made to ensure activation. Speaking (or should I say listening, haha) of sounds on air-pods, the audio AirPods display is impressively smooth, enhanced, and clear. I personally believe AirPods provide better sound than EarPods (by far).

A common fear-based specifically around Apple's AirPods is that the headphones are too small and therefore, relatively easy to lose. I too, had this fear as it's a valid debate when deciding to invest in AirPods ($159 from Apple). On behalf of my experience, I can confidently say that I have never lost my AirPods nor have either fell out of my ears (unless I felt them falling out, which I then had the reaction time to catch). Although, when AirPods do accidentally fall out of the ear, music being played is automatically paused until the air-pods detect themselves back in both ears (today's technology is wild!). Nonetheless, Apple's AirPods are form-fitting and comfortable, I usually forget I have them in my ears (that's a good thing, trust me).

If you couldn't tell, I'm more than happy with my purchase on Apple's AirPods. This is Alyssa Gormley, and I 12/10 recommended Apple's Air-pods -- thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
