For some, it goes beyond having a device that simplifies phone use actions like making and receiving calls or simply listening to music, it is the very idea of being a part of what is considered as the newest trend in mobile technology that gives gratification.
However, health experts warn that the small white wireless devices have a devastating impact on the wearers.
University of Colorado professor Jerry Phillips told Medium: "My concern for AirPods is that their placement in the ear canal exposes tissues in the head to relatively high levels of radio-frequency radiation".
The bubble may be bursting for AirPods users, however, as a number of scientists have come out to say the device is harmful and may have the potential of causing cancer.
The scientists are calling for greater oversight and additional warnings for all types of technology that emit radio waves.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer recently determined that EMF is "possibly carcinogenic" to humans, the petition adds.
EMF is a similar type of radiowave to X-rays or UV but it is not as powerful or intense.
"Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most worldwide and national guidelines", according to the petition.
University of Pennsylvania, Kenneth Foster, believes that wireless headphones do not provide a risk based on current evidence.
He said: "There are many thousands of papers of varying quality and relevance to health that point in all sorts of directions".
But the new petitions' authors warn that even these guidelines could be unsafe - and much more research is needed.
The petition adds: "The various agencies setting safety standards have failed to impose sufficient guidelines to protect the general public, particularly children who are more vulnerable to the effects of EMF".
Apple have said all their devices comply with guidelines and regulations, when asked about the cancer risk.
