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 Review (Gen 2): A Smart Upgrade for 2019

 

Faster, smarter, longer-lasting, the AirPods 2 are still at the top of the heap for iPhone owners. Apple has given people what they want with wireless charging and a hands-free approach to Siri. And the fact that the buds offer longer talk time and...

Lightweight, comfortable design ; Faster connection on iOS devices ; Hands-free Siri integration ; Good audio quality

Limited controls ; No equalizer ; Lacks ambient listening mode

The new Apple AirPods 2 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...

Best connectivity, better battery life, easy Siri access

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

Apple AirPods (2019) review

 

Pod-like genius

H1 chip is super speedy ; Hands-free Siri works well ; Wireless charging ; Very few performance issues

Still no noise isolation ; Expensive ; Unspectacular audio ; Don’t fit all ears

Not a major upgrade by any means, but Apple’s iconic earbuds are becoming harder to resist

Apple AirPods 2 review: Small improvements spell second-gen success?

 

The 2nd generation AirPods add wireless charging to the case. But with a divisive design and high price point are these the wireless in-ears to buy?

Quick to charge using the included case ; Now offers Hey Siri for voice control ; Easy to connect thanks to H1 chip

Not great in noisy environments ; The same polarising design ; Many premium competitors ; Can fall out ; Expensive

While the headline announcement is a wireless charging case, the real winner for the second-generation AirPods is the better managed battery that delivers a noticeable improvement in talk time between charges. Otherwise the divisive design remains the...
