We've gone full circle. Capitalism is just awesome.
@Antanicus oh thank god I can finally get AirPods.
@Antanicus so many questions, the most prominent among them being "literally why is this gendered"
@alexis @Antanicus because it is coming from this post:
@Antanicus ahahah dio cane
you'll laugh, but I actually think this is a good idea 😅
The only thing that I think could still be improved, is if they made the strap into a wire, such that the sound signal could go into the AirPods via the wire and they wouldn't need a battery or bluetooth anymore.
@maltimore this is pure genius! You should patent this idea
@feld @Antanicus @maltimore @Awizadofearthsea I'm completely turned off by this kind of technical overkill: headphones I need to connect via Bluetooth, which have to be recharged and are easily lost just to avoid wiring. I prefer the simplest solution if there's no real advantage. Headphones => plug in => works.
Recently someone asked me (as their tech-savy friend😅) how they could both listen to the same radio/podcast while running. Bluetooth doesn't offer a option for two receivers by default. Most workarounds to that are REALLY klutzy. I actually advised them air-pods, but not for this feature, but to simply wear one each! 😂

wear around his neck that keeps
both buds secure.
@Antanicus lmaoooo this rules
@Antanicus 60 dollars for a string of thread. thanks nordstrom!
@Antanicus wired wireless earbuds
ill take 20
You could make this with twine and duct tape and you'd still have twine and duct tape left over to do other stuff
@Antanicus pure genius!
@Antanicus and it's 60 bucks i cant breath
@Antanicus Now if someone could come up with a mounting slot on the phone so you can attach the earpods to it so they don't get separated...
@Antanicus 60 motherfucking American dollars?
Oh, wait, it's for Apple crap. Nvm.
@Antanicus i still dont understand people mocking this thing
the advantage of bluetooth earpods/headphones include being more portable and also having a lack of a wire going from the headphones to the phone; these dont negate either of those advantages, it just ensures you wont lose them like a silly dick
now: the concept of the wireless earpods themselves? yeah i dont get that. nor do i get the SIXTY DOLLAR PRICETAG on that strap holy shit
@Antanicus I love the fact that this is either a male only item, or male only problem...
Do women just *not* lose airpods? Do they not wear them?
@Antanicus So efficient.
@Antanicus This joke of a product wouldn't be complete without the $60 price tag. Well done.
@Antanicus i like how they leave a hole so you can still show off the fact there's no wire
@Antanicus $60 Gendered String
@Antanicus i guess the next step is to bring back the 3.5mm headphone jack and use it as a recharge port for the airpods. OH wait, then why do they need to be wireless again?
