Well, demand is really high. You can monitor stock levels in other countries from this site: https://airpods.isinstock.com/locations
Apparently, it's out of stock everywhere

Wow! I didn't realise that the 'remove one side to pause' even works in Safari on my MacBook Pro!

Was watching youtube video and the video actually paused and resume when I removed and replaced one side
It will work with any app that plays sound/ music cos the sensor is controlled by hardware not software.

Likely Chinese New Year factory shutdown. Impossible so long no stock. One possibility is stocks are on their way via sea shipping?

The sensors is indeed hardware but it requires the software to be able to receive the 'pause' command from the AirPods and react accordingly.

Stocks pop up every now and then in places (you can see it shows what places had stocks in the last 24 hours). I been monitoring that site for a couple of days. There is re-stocking ongoing.

No way by sea shipping, my AirPods came in by DHL, super fast delivery.

Agreed. Expensive portable electronics are never shipped by sea. Always air freight.

Not weird for a hot product. No stocks just means you can't get it immediately and all stocks are shipped to fulfil exisiting orders
