You can also switch between active noise cancelling and transparency mode by double tapping either side of the airpod while connected to your phone.

Another great feature is that with most models of air pods, you can take calls directly from them without having to take out your phone or even unlock it first! To answer a call, simply tap on either side of the air pod twice quickly and start talking – no need for any other devices! To hang up a call just double tap again.
