This is definitely a problem.
While I love my AirPods overall (in terms of convenience), they + iPhone 6s + Apple Watch + WiFi (sometimes) show 3 problems for me:
- AirPods disconnect from phone calls.
- AirPods disconnect from playing the Music or Podcasts app (and thus pause the playback)
- AirPods have frequently gaps/skips/blips in music playback
I'm not badmouthing AirPods; I love the vision and the convenience. But we also need to be honest and transparent about the shortcomings of v1 so that Apple engineers can continue improving them.
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.
