Apple compensated for the remote connector in the iPhone 7 release of wireless headphones AirPods, which automatically connect to the smartphone in a matter of seconds. This is due to the new W1 chip, which opened a new page in the history of the Bluetooth connection.
Many, probably, regret that such advanced features of AirPods are sharpened only for the devices made by Apple. But the dense integration of AirPods with Apple products does not mean that you can not use them as Bluetooth headphones with devices from other companies.
You can make an AirPods connection to a smartphone on Android, Windows Phone, computer or Apple TV using the same Bluetooth connection method that we are used to and which annoys us so much. But what you will not do for your own comfort, sound quality and stunning design that Apple offers in its new headphones.
With the help of optical sensors and motion accelerometers, AirPods are able to detect when they are in your ears. Using advanced noise reduction technology, headphones provide a clean sound. They can work 5 hours on one charge. The case can provide additional work of the device within 24 hours.
Just a 15-minute charge will prolong listening for 3 hours. This is a very important feature that will offer you more freedom to enjoy your favorite music without unnecessary worry about the battery. It’s unlikely that most wireless headphones for Android can offer this.
So, in order to connect AirPods with Android-smartphone, you need to do the following simple steps:
Step 1. First, you need to open the case and put the AirPods headphones in there.
Step 2. Now you must press and hold the connection button located on the back of the case. After that, the LED indicator on the case should flash white light.
Step 3. After that, start Bluetooth on your device.
Step 4. Now, you should select AirPods from the list.
Step 5. Finally, confirm the pairing process.
That’s all it takes! If you did not succeed the first time, then Apple advises to repeat the procedure from the very beginning. That is, you need to put the headphones in the case, close it and only then start following the instructions. With standard modern Android-smartphones, you should get it. Now it’s time to enjoy wireless headphones and make the best use of them.
Of course, if you use AirPods with Android, you will not be able to use all the features that are provided to work in tandem with iOS 10. For example, you will not be able to use a voice assistant or battery indicator. But all the same, AirPods will perform their main work honestly and qualitatively.
If you take an AirPods connection with Samsung Galaxy S7 for example, double-clicking on the headphones stops and starts the music playing again. Perhaps, with other smartphones, experimenting, you will open other opportunities, which we now do not yet know.
