    This is funny because Conan is just saying what we are all thinking. And, at $159 a set, it's not like those things are exactly cheap to replace either. What are the odds Apple would sell just one if you need a replacement?

    And that wouldn't have to be charged separately.

    And that would emit no radiation.

    And that would be universally compatible.

    And that would be cheap.

    And run off device power instead of needing to be recharged after a few hours or so?

    Blasphemy, sir. Blasphemy.

    That is sad! Also they have to be charged separately?! No dock or anything?

    But it made me laugh.

    Yeah... They look ridiculous too. I mean.. posers can totally just pull the wires off their current earpods and walk around with people thinking they're airpods. I've had to buy silicon covers for the earpods just to keep them in from normal walking.

    Knowing Apple there'll be some kind of neck band thing that joins on airpod with the other for $29.99. LMAO.

    Yet people will still buy them by the millions. The fact Apple is still a wildly successful company is just proof to me that humanity is full of stupid. I get it, there are reasons people may want to by their products...for the less computer savvy, for the people who do all things art or something, but those that believe that apple just makes the best stuff?

    Not sure if staged or legit, but goes along nicely with your point:

    licensing fees is a very underrated revenue generator for Apple; it's why even the most mundane of accessories are priced much higher than they should be.

    Apple is trying to force innovation at this point, it's the same as the manufactured smartwatch fad.

    Anyone try out Samsungs wireless earbuds? Samsung Gear IconX
    I've read these actually stay in your ears. They are a different product - you can use Samsung's without being paired to your phone.
    My other problem with the Apple product is it looks very tacky - you stand out. My goal in life has been to blend in and not stand out.

    It's not like the stock iPhone headphones were ever any good, you'd be an idiot to buy these instead of decent third-party wireless headphones.

    Is it me, or does Conan looks like he is made of plastic... Kind of like an upgraded version of Max Headroom?
