Anonymous, 21 Dec 2016Haha what about Samsung's iconX? No one bothers to tear it down i guess. Isn't that what an... morei don't think iconx generated enough hype as the airpods...i think people ignored it just like the other trackers that samsung had..only the gear3 got all the attention.....anyways as many of the readers have commented, repairablilty for headphones is not important..till date i have never repaired any of my headphones..its not practical and there aren't many places that do it..yeah if its in warranty period it gets replaced..thats all....can't really blame apple on this one...and about the poor soldering..if there's a generous amount of glue, it will probably stay there without much probs hehe
Haha what about Samsung's iconX?
No one bothers to tear it down i guess. Isn't that what android users are proud about.. and saying its so much better then AirPods?
Guess its not even worth iFixit to tear one down.
Because people repair their earbuds all the time.
After a while, iFixIt is becoming a has been, only focusing on page hits and SEO.

"0/10 repairability score"
Yeah very different from all other earbuds that can be easily fixed and serviced at home. Oh yes, android fans do it all the time all of a sudden, right?
The soldering finding is more serious but it has to be noted this was on THE CASE, not the airpods themselves.
Drinkableach, 20 Dec 2016Good luck repairing your Sennheiser headphones... oops, i meant breaking them permanently and ... moreAt least it can be repair.
Optional, 21 Dec 2016A fanboy, indeed.A fanboy of what? You cant even create a proper comment regarding something i posted, and your totally taking the question of hands.... Look, the AirPods as far as i know are a piece of royal sh-it and so is Apple, but the real deal is that you dont think of which earphones youll get based on repairability, but on how well they sound. Some of the initial comments were judging these pair of earphones based on durability alone, which makes no sense at all, for literally anyone who got a pair of headphones/earphones to listen to music, not tear them down and bond them back up again, jeez...
Drinkableach, 20 Dec 2016Good luck repairing your Sennheiser headphones... oops, i meant breaking them permanently and ... moreMy Senn is past its warranty but its parts in everywhere and most audio repairshop can fix it.
Tough depending on the damage it might cost nearly half of its price, but its assured it return to prime condition because it's fixable.
Not quite the same with this $170 airpods with 0/10 fixability.
Shaming on you apple! regardless I am not a fan but you could have done better. Samsung took a hard hit with the S7 , now its their turn. #TEKURLICK
pratiush, 20 Dec 2016Apple fans still be happy that iFixit gave 0 and not negative. Lolz!!The following...
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2016Most of the commenters on this post, majority are ihaters as you can see I'm one of themLike i said, my comment was toward the world of earphones and not directly associated with Apple. In a general consensus, im pretty sure youd rather have something that sounds good, rather than something repairable, which implicates it probably wount even output or receive sound anymore.

Can you imagine running in the park listening music and abada cadabra I lost my airpods. And that's not all, and then a big website like iFixit.com said that is disassembled MMMM no thanks. I think I pass. But Apple Fans will still spending money just because they feel so fancy using the apple symbol.
My personal opinion
UnKnown-original, 20 Dec 2016"which usually perfects " - Yeah, tell that to all 4s users who had to live with no Wi-Fi.They have moved on right now.

He... moreGood luck repairing your Sennheiser headphones... oops, i meant breaking them permanently and requiring them to take a factory tour sometime the in future, with the upfollowing costs of fixing, because youve just killed off any warranty and issurance applied on the product. Whats wrong with you people, whats an Apple fan to you (someone that just mentions theyr name)?
The concept of repairability is a hoax created by and for the Chinese in order to keep their factories busy.
