Yeah, there are definitely things I miss about the controls for wired EarPods. I have my AirPods set to Siri (left) and play/pause (right), which works well since I don’t want to have to take a pod out to pause playback. As I said in another comment, I think it would be neat if a press-and-hold could be used for a command. Also, though it’s obviously not an ideal solution (and clearly what Apple would want), having an Apple Watch gets you basically all the playback controls you need.
