Fast forward to 2019, it has sold over 35 million AirPods as of 2018 and has taken a dominant market share of the Wireless Hearables Market. It has even become a "status" symbol to some groups of people. Ie. in the video below (a bit exaggerated but you get my point).
What do you guys think happened that dramatically impacted the perception of the AirPods? And did you guys have similar thoughts when it first came out?
Honestly speaking, when the AirPods was first announced I had my doubts but once I tried on a pair from my friends, the user experience and good reviews was what really sold me on the product.
