The jury’s still out on Apple’s AirPods – the company’s new wireless headphones designed to effortlessly integrate with its products.
If you read my post, you’ll remember I was a bit pissed these headphones aren’t included with the headphone jack-less iPhone 7, but that might not be their biggest problem. According to Twitter, the futuristic music sticks have the deadly combinations of being easy to lose and quite expensive.

Conan O’Brien noticed the internet’s anger about the new accessory, and recreated these classic iPod commercials with one big twist — there are no wires. And when you lose them in a subway grate or otherwise, there’s nothing else to do then cough up $159 for a full set or a bit less if you only need one.
Are you already scared of AirPods falling out of your ears, or do you think Conan is exaggerating? Let us know in the comments.
