Apple's AirPods cost $159 (£159.99, about AU$215). That seems like a lot of money when the wireless (but connected together) Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless Earbud headphones cost $120.
Good news: AirPods are still cheaper than Samsung's fully wireless earbuds, the Samsung Gear IconX. Apple's version may lack its fitness functionality, but the Apple Watch already has all that stuff anyway.
Between now and when you can finally order AirPods, you can use the Apple EarPods that will have a Lightning cable on the end and come free with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Or, you can continue to use your current headphones thanks to an included Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter. That is, until you lose it, then the AirPods might not seem like a bad choice...until you probably lose one of those, too. Great.
