The tap controls on AirPods never seemed to work for me or anyone else i knew with them. 

 

 

 

 

I think the big flaw with all  airpod is no volume control, and you have to ask siri to increase or decrease volume, and isn't possible if you are somewhere that you must remain quiet. IMO that is essential. Some sort of capactive touch slide control IMO would make sense. The new squeeze control also doesn't look like a great solution from the reviews, especially as they have decreased the length of the storks.  Kind of reminds me of that failed ipod shuffle that didn't have any buttons on it, and only had buttons on it, and I think it only lasted one generation before it they put the buttons back on.

Picked mine up in Sydney yesterday and used them for the flight back home. The noise cancellation was outstanding. The sounds of the engine was completely gone.

This is a manufacturing fault that comes up from time to time. Call Apple and get them replaced. Seriously, it's like one in ten pairs is affected but no one cares enough to do anything about it. I recently picked up an extra pair at Costco for the missus while in the US and they don't detect when they've been removed from your ears or any type of tap based controls. Apple replaced them with a brand new set no questions asked.

Works well to me. I use volume controls on the phone in my pocket.

Brought a pair a couple days ago, they’re incredible, haven’t used by Bose NC700’s since.

Having some issues with mine lately, but it could well be the ios upgrades. The built in music app keeps stopping on me. Rebooting iphone does fix it, but it keeps recurring.

I had my first wee hiccup today - long press wouldn't activate either pass-through or ANC...took them off, put them in the case, put them back on - everything worked. 

 

 

 

Still loving them...they're everything I wanted AirPods to be.
