I'll be getting a pair. I like the ability to be able to charge on the go.
With the problems I started to experience with my Jaybirds, I don't want to be without a set of earphones with a charge, so like the idea of being able to pop them into the charging case whilst on the move to get charge. The ability to listen to one Airpod is also a plus (as I often only use one of my current earphones), and have the other hanging loose so I can listen to traffic and my surroundings.
Lack of proper controls to skip songs is a bummer though. I do hope that the customisation to the AirPods comes at some stage, but as far as I am aware, that's just wishful thinking.
