We have heard previously how popular Apple AirPods are, the headphones have been in high demand since they launched.
According to a recent report by NPD, the Apple AirPods are the most popular wireless earbuds available.
In the report from NPD the AirPods have apparently taken 85 percent of the the totally wireless headphone sales in the US.
Some products have a loftier goal – making the wireless earbud a computing device for the ear. Since launching in December, Apple’s AirPods have accounted for 85 percent of totally wireless headphone dollar sales in the U.S., according to NPD’s Retail Tracking Service. With a use case centering on frictionless access to Siri and other tasks initiated by voice, AirPods really act as an extension of the iPhone. Apple’s path to leadership in the category is helped by disruptive pricing, brand resonance, and excitement over the W1 chip, which significantly eases Bluetooth connections to iOS and Mac devices.
It will be interesting to see if Apple can keep this up as other devices like Samsung’s IconX are also popular.
