Is the world ready for the AirPod? 

On Wednesday -- along with revealing the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus -- Apple introduced its new wireless headphones: AirPods. 

The headphones are a new kind of accessory born out of the vanishing act by the headphone jack in the latest iPhone models.

AirPods, Apple says, connect to your devices thanks to a special Apple-designed W1 chip.

Sensors reportedly detect when the AirPod is in your ear and can pause or start your music accordingly -- and dual microphones help wearers answer calls or talk to Siri, according to the company.  

These headphones of the future will cost about $160 when they go on sale in October.

But just as quickly as they were introduced, came the side-eye from social media.
