Apple AirPods review (2019): More of the same, but that's OK


Apple's updated AirPods don't pack many thrilling upgrades, but the improvements they did get make for more seamless, convenient use. Because of that, little about the new AirPods are worth the upgrade for existing owners — that is, of course, unless...

Improved wireless performance ; Same solid battery life ; Supports wireless charging if you’re into that

In-ear fit isn’t for everyone ; No meaningful change to sound quality ; Wireless charging is slow

Apple AirPods (2nd Generation)


The second-generation Apple AirPods come with a wireless charging case, but do little to justify their higher price or improve upon the shortcomings of the original model.

Crisp, clear audio. Excellent wireless charging case design. Solid mic clarity. Hands-free Siri access. Easy pairing.

Limited on-ear controls. In-ear fit and lack of canal seal can feel loose and impact audio. No IP rating for water resistance. Expensive.

The hands-free Siri feature is a welcome addition and the charging case improvements are nice, but the new AirPods don't represent a significant step forward from the previous model—but they cost $40 more. The on-ear controls are still awkward, the...

Apple AirPods 2 Review: The Sound of Convenience


The original Apple AirPods succeeded because of one core quality: convenience. Ease of connection and ease of daily use instantly set them apart from rivals, and underscored yet again how Apple's tight-knit ecosystem of hardware and software can give...

Convenience remains king ; Battery life improvements are noticeable ; Connects faster and with more stability ; Wireless charging is useful

Still no active noise cancellation ; Siri requires a data connection to work ; No waterproofing

Apple AirPods 2 Truly Wireless 2019 Review


The Apple AirPods 2 Truly Wireless 2019 are practically the same as the Apple AirPods 1 Truly Wireless 2017, with slight differences. We tested the version with ...

Fairly well-balanced mid and treble ranges. Very light and portable. Fast charging time. Great build quality. Unique and distinguishable design.

Mediocre noise handling. No EQ or presets. Poor noise isolation. Bass delivery varies significantly across users. Limited control scheme.

The Apple AirPods 2 are passable for mixed usage. They're well-designed truly wireless headphones. However, their sound profile isn't extremely balanced, and they don't have an app that allows you to adjust it. Their open-back design also means they...

The new AirPods brings wireless charging and hands-free Siri into the mix with longer call times and clearer audio.

AirPods (2nd generation) review: Apple's mega-hit headphones get a few modest improvements


AirPods took over the wireless headphone world, and now they're a little bit better.

Hands-free 'Hey, Siri' ; Optional wireless charging case ; Excellent comfort and ease of use

Sound quality is just okay ; The best features only work with Apple devices

AirPods may not have the best sound quality of all wireless earbuds, and we'd love a more snug fit that blocks a little more ambient sound. But their convenience, ease of use, and fit and finish remain unmatched.

The New AirPods Are Fine


The conversation is getting old. You know, the one about how Apple isn't innovating with new hardware because the future of its business is in services and streaming video and this new Apple credit card that blah blah blah. But a lot of people point...

Apple AirPods (2019) Review - Small upgrades | Trusted Reviews


More like v1.5, the second-generation of the Apple AirPods are simple yet great wireless earphones that are a pleasure to use

Great battery life and charging case ; Wireless charging a nice addition ; Fantastic connection

Doesn’t address problems with the first-gen product ; Wireless charging case costs extra ; Fit might be dodgy for some

The second-generation AirPods are simple yet great wireless earphones that are a pleasure to use
