    Yes. Because they're just Bluetooth earbuds, AirPods work with Samsung and other Android devices. The buds are compatible with any device that supports Bluetooth, which includes most Windows laptops and some smart TVs.

    If you were concerned that you couldn't get in on the AirPods craze with your Chromebook, don't worry. Your Apple AirPods and Google Chromebook are compatible via Bluetooth. While AirPods are an Apple product, they can still connect to a Chromebook and other Bluetooth-enabled devices, like a Peloton bike.

    AirPods Max is bought for the sound quality. For wireless headphones, this is great. The digital crown is smooth and feels great for adjusting volume. The AirPods Max sounds really good and has a clear, pleasing sound profile that will appeal to most listeners.

    Apple finally made good AirPods. For just $50 more than the original model with the wireless charging case, this is definitely the pair of buds to get. The AirPods Pro sounds better than the originals and has a way better fit and active noise cancelling to boot. If you have an iOS device, just get this.

    Apple Producing AirPods 3 in China Instead of Vietnam Due to Pandemic Disruption. Apple has been seeking to add geographic diversity to its supply chain for some time, with a shift of some production of the AirPods lineup to Vietnam being one significant step for the company.

    So, yes, it is possible to use Apple AirPods or AirPods Pro with an Android phone like any other pair of Bluetooth earphones. The pairing process isn't quite as visually pleasing or convenient as using your AirPods Pro with an iPhone, but it's still simple enough, and once connected you don't lose too many features.

    Try inserting the AirPods with the medium-sized ear tips in your ears so that the AirPods are seated comfortably and securely. If you can't get a good seal, try adjusting the AirPod or switch to a larger ear tip. If the ear tip feels too large in your ear or is uncomfortable, try a smaller ear tip.

Plus, although they work best when used with an Apple product, they can be paired with any Bluetooth device, from smart TVs to smartphones.

    Your AirPods will give you up to 6 hours of listening time or up to 4 hours of talk time on a single charge. However, the battery life differs between models and depends on the volume, use of features, and many other factors. Also, keep in mind that battery life degrades over time.
