I like the 60 second spot. The shorter ones were not enough for my tastes.
After 1 week with the AirPods and my iPhone 6s:
Pros: convenience, fit, stay in ears, freedom from wires, sound quality, case with battery, tiny size
Cons: disconnects from phone calls when using 2 AirPods; frequent brief sound-dropouts during music playback
Others on the Apple Support forum have reported similar cons. Hopefully Apple can fix these with a software or firmware distribution (no hardware replacement). We all love the AirPods design and just want them to work as advertised.

I'll be interesting to see how & when Apple publicly acknowledges this project. Given the need for extensive road-testing of the product in a wide variety of circumstances, I imagine that Apple won't be able to keep it under wraps until the last moment (within months of release) as they do with personal devices.
