Are the Apple Airpods water proof? Lets put them through a water and drop test to check out their durability. Whenever Apple or any other company for that matter releases a new product people have to ask whether the product is water proof or not.

As far as the Airpods are concerned Apple has not claimed the Airpods to be waterproof officially. In fact it would be recommended not to submerge them in water at all.
However, a Youtuber EverythingApplePro took the Airpods through drop test, submerged them in water and even put them in a detergent laden washing machine. The results show that the Airpods are resistant to impact and water damage.
They continue to perform with minor superficial damage after all the tests have been carried out. The Airpods went through the standard drop tests. They were dropped from waist and head height.
They fell to the ground, bounced round a bit but inky suffered from minor scratches. Most astonishingly the Airpods managed to survive a detergent laden washing machine test.
This was potential real life test as you might actually leave your Airpods in your pocket while your jeans go for a wash.
