The third and final topic that the MacVoices Live! panel of Jeff Gamet, David Ginsburg, Jay Miller, Jim Rea, Kelly Guimont, Mark Fuccio, and Brittany Smith took on was an unusual one: just how important are Apple’s AirPods? When introduced, they were dismissed by audiophiles and pundits alike. So how did they become yet another Apple phenomena? The panel explores the issue. (Part 3)
