Really great quality. Typical Apple quality I think, these things hold up well to wear and tear.

Based on ratings published by trusted online review sites as well as information from Apple AirPods' website, Apple AirPods performs average to better than average in terms of construction quality compared to other wireless earbud brands.

Based on a review posted on soundguys.com, Apple AirPods was rated as fairly average for construction quality relative to competing in-ear earbud headphone brands. Check out the entire review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:

Apple is king when it comes to build quality and design, and that’s still the case with the AirPods… kind of. Even though they’re made of plastic, the charging case feels great. It’s lightweight and sturdy enough to be tossed into your pocket. This is good because you’re going to want to keep the case on you at all times, even if it’s just to store the ‘buds when you’re not using them. The new AirPods (or AirPods 2) still look exactly the same and have exactly the same build as well. So if you, like me, had trouble getting the originals to fit your ears then you’re out of luck. These are going to be just as impossible to use thanks to Apple believing that these are one-size-fits-all, which they are not.
