An in-depth review of the Black Pods and we answer the critical questions like "What Happened to BlackPods?" - "Who Made BlackPods?" and most importantly....are they any good? We will also provide our readers a full overview of the features and functions of the BlackPods to give you an idea about if they are suitable for you or whether you might be better suited with another model.
iOS 13 & Android:
The first question we often get asked is do the BlackPods work with iOS 13 or Android and the answer is absolutely yes to both those questions. Our PodsBay BlackPods work with all current iOS software and any Android device as the unit is based on Bluetooth 5.0 technology so it will pair with basically any device.
How To Connect BlackPods
Step 1: Go into the bluetooth settings and ensure your Bluetooth is toggled to "on".
Step 2: Open the case lid and wait a moment, you should shortly see an iOS popup with instructions
Step 3: Once it is successfully paired you can use them as normal and they will sync across all your devices after a few hours. You can also rename them, customise the Left and the Right earbud functions and locate them using the "Find my iPhone" function on iOS devices.
Step 4: If for some reason you do not get the "Popup" you can hold down the button on the back until you see the LED on the front of the case blink white and you should see a name or option in your Bluetooth connection list to connect them manually.
Are BlackPods Real?
Yes! That is the most simple answer can give you, they are real but there some sites you need to be wary of as BlackPods are unfortunately sold by many websites that are trying to scam you. Many people saw the BlackPods review from Unbox Therapy and were interested in buying a pair, unfortunately most websites are unsafe to buy from. As a general rule if the website does not accept PayPal then you should 100% avoid buying from that website as you have no protection if they do not ship your product.
We recommend Podsbay.com as a trustworthy website because PodsBay accepts PayPal - Sezzle - Klarna (Buy Now Pay Later) and all the Credit Card networks and they offer Shipping Insurance. No other TWS Earbuds website offers this.
We know the following companies to be 100% Scams
- Blk Pods
- Blk noir (or Blknoir)
Who Made BlackPods?
There is some dispute as to "Who made blackpods?" but the simple answer is it was not one company. Many companies have their own BlackPods design and method of manufacture. The most important thing is that you actually receive the product that you purchased.
Rest assured though there are not different versions of BlackPods. Some customers talk about BlackPods V3 or V2 etc but the truth is that is all just marketing lies and mistruths. There is no such thing as different versions of BlackPods. There has only ever been one design and some companies will offer that earbud unit with a wireless charger or in a fancy Acrylic Perspex Box to make it look "beautiful". But the actual unit is always the same.
Many companies claiming to offer BlackPods V3 or some "special" version are unfortunately almost always scams.
Are BlackPods Worth It?
For their price absolutely! At $54.99 USD including free global delivery BlackPods in a svelte soft touch matte black finish are a very reasonably priced unit. They connect to your iOS or Android devices with the H1 Chip so you get that great iOS popup, and for Android you can connect over Bluetooth 5.0 to ensure low lag/latency connection while listening to music or watching YouTube.
Compared to real Apple Airpods the price difference is huge with Airpods costing $159 USD and the BlackPods costing only $54.99. If you cannot afford the real thing but you'd like something thats "a bit different" and connects to your devices in the exact same way then absolutely blackpods are worth it.
At PodsBay we also offer a Warranty Guarantee for any purchases.

What Are BlackPods?
Some customers ask what are BlackPods? Many people have seen them on YouTube (specifically Unbox Therapy). They are simply TWS or True Wireless Sound earbuds meaning they connect to your iOS or Android devices over Bluetooth or the H1 chip connection and as such do not require wires or cords.
They are not manufactured by Apple but they will behave in a very similar way. You get the iOS popup and most importantly they look very cool.

All our BlackPods come with the H1 Chip, bass boosting technology to give you that low end bass sound and improved JL Chipset to ensure stability with the Bluetooth 5.0 connection and battery life lasts around 3 hours and our weight is about 46g.
Each BlackPod comes with a 30 Day Warranty Guarantee and we offer free worldwide delivery as well as shipping insurance to cover you incase of loss or failure of delivery.
