In the mid of December when the Apple started to take orderds for the Airpods, the initial shipping date was 21 December for $159 wireless earphone. Nonetheless, the estimated shipment quickly slipped to four weeks, in an attempt to take advantage some of the customers were willing to take the wait for the Airpods by putting up their pre-ordered units on eBay for the prices as high as $1,590.
