I was never able to use the EarPods that Apple included with their iPhones – they constantly fell out. So, forget running with them for me!

If you were looking for a deal on AirPods, this deal is for you! The Apple AirPods retail for $159 so getting them for $123 is a pretty nice deal. I have bought a ton of stuff from Best Buy that was certified refurbished and only one time had an issue with the actual item (which they resolved quickly).

This means that you do not need to pair it with each machine. I use this to go from my Apple Watch Series 4 during a run to my cell phone when I’m back in the car and the transition is seamless.
- Size – the size and weight are excellent. Picture a dental floss container and you have the idea
