I have in front of me a brand new pair of Apple Airpods. I also have the remains of What’s Inside’s Airpods that they demolished on their ownchannel. And I don’t know about you guys, but I would much rather analyze what’s left of the What’sInside’s Airpods, and giveaway my brand new set to one of you. So stick around to the end of the video to see how to win. Home is the heaven and your personal space of comfort and relaxation Let’s get started. The unfortunate thing about the Apple Airpods is that once they’ve been taken apart theycan never be put back together again. So I’m glad I don’t have to destroy another pair; that would be unnecessary.
This is the left over Airpod that What’s Inside did not destroy and I can see a faintseam around the head of the speaker, and that’s where I’ll start my attack. While the Airpods might look like a glorified Q-Tip in a dental floss container, there’sactually some interesting technology inside. Remember that water resistant screen that covers the ports on the iPhone 7? Turning our attention to the vicious family feud at Korea′s fifth largest conglomerate… The Korean gove… That same type of screen is found here, inside the Airpods. It lets sound and air pass through, but not liquid. It helps the Airpods stay water resistant.
The proximity sensor ribbon did get torn completely in half when I ripped off that outer shell. See what I mean by non-repairable? And now for the good stuff. This is the actual speaker inside of the Airpods. The first thing that stands out to me is the clear speaker cone made out of smooth, flexible,rubber-like material. Let’s compare it to the speaker inside the regular corded headphones that are includedinside every new iPhone 7 box. I would recommend against applying pressure with a razor blade in such close proximityto your finger tips, but just remember, I am a professional.
The wired ear phones are definitely easier to get inside and I can already see the differencewith the speaker cone, instead of the smooth rubber cone of the Airpods. This has more of a plastic feel to it. The textured ripples are noticeably different. The cone material doesn’t matter a whole lot though. For a speaker this size, the sound difference between materials would be minimal. Both materials are water resistant, unlike a paper or cardboard cone found in some caraudio speakers. For a speaker this size, the sound difference between materials would be minimal.
Underneath that cone though lies something more important: the magnets. The regular corded Apple headphones have a copper coil diameter of 7 millimeters, whilethe coil of the Apple wireless Airpods have7.5 in diameter. This means that the electromagnet inside the Airpod is slightly larger than the magnetinside the corded headphones. A larger magnet means a more powerful speaker. Obviously the .5 millimeter difference is extremely small and the average person won’tnotice any major differences…but it’s still interesting to see. The copper coil from the regular iPhone 7headphones can fit inside the coil from theAirpods. So if you’re the type of person that needs every half millimeter you can get, Airpodsare probably the headphones for you.
Just for kicks and giggles I’ll open up the shaft of the Airpods. This allows the metal charging tip on the bottom to come loose and the inner batterycan be exposed. Most everyone I know who owns these Airpods and uses them says good things about them. So whoever wins the brand new set of Airpods is going to be lucky indeed. I’ll include a Gleam link in the description of this article where you can enter into thecontest. I’ve included What’s Inside social media in the giveaway, since without them this freepair of Airpods wouldn’t be possible. The Airpods do work with Android phones as well so everyone can enter into the giveaway.
Hit that thumbs up if you like seeing tech reviewed from the inside, and I’ll continueto make videos like this in the future.
