W1 Chip Enables Seamless Pairing

The W1 is a custom Bluetooth chip from Apple and is designed to support automatic pairing with any Apple device that runs on Mac OS Sierra, Watch OS 3, or iOS 10 and it delivers very well.

The headphone will also allow you to transition between Apple devices with a lot of ease as you toggle between your computer’s sound to that of your iPad or iPhone.

The challenge is that you cannot access their special features.
