AirPods To Hit Market Next Week, Apple Reseller Conrad Says
Apple made its revolutionary move of getting rid of 3.5mm ear-phones jacks and providing a wireless alternative for ear-phones, by announcing the AirPods in September during the Apple iPhone 7 launch. Reports suggested that the AirPods will be out on stores from October.
AirPods to be made fully ready before launch
However, Apple announced that it does not want to release the product into the market before it is "Completely Ready". "We don't believe in shipping a product before its ready, and we need a little more time before AirPods are ready for our customers" said the Apple Spokesperson.
AirPods expected launch in 2017
The company also said that they wanted "little more time" to come-up with the finished product. Hence, it was expected that the release of AirPods could be delayed till the beginning of 2017.

However looks like there had been improvements in pace with regards to the AirPods. A conversation leaked by MacRumors said that Apple reseller Conrad has said that they will receive the stock of AirPods on Nov. 17 and it will be available for buying by Nov. 18-19.
Especially, German blog Apfelpage.de expresses that an employee at Apple reseller Conrad was saying AirPod stock will arrive on November 17, and will go on sale on November 18-19.
According to Google Translate the message connotes as follows;
"Hello, I have just talked with an employee of the Conrad Online Store, since I am there on 14.10 the AirPods ordered and I wanted to cancel today.
"According to information from the employee, they have stockpiles from 17.11, I will then have them between 18-19. November."
