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.
The only problem I had was my first pair drained while inactive way too quickly; second pair doesn't do it -- w/ full pods at bedtime, the case loses about 2% over 8 hours of sleeping.

Apple management needs to change it's approach to adapt to its new place in the world and ditch the secrecy.
PS Could someone please tell Phil Schiller that he is not channeling Steve Jobs or being 'courageous' by dropping 3.5mm headphone on the iPhone 7 (Apple should have waited to next year's new design), neither was ditching USB-A ports, magsafe, etc on the new MBP (should have just replaced the two TB ports with USBC/TB3 ports).
But oh, not enough legacy USB ports. Uh huh.
