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...

Apple AirPods (2019) review

 

What's actually new with the second-gen AirPods?

Faster pairing ; Wireless charging ; Hands-free ‘Hey Siri’ functionality

Wireless charging case costs extra ; Audio hasn't improved ; Identical design to the originals

While new features like wireless charging and faster pairing are useful, the AirPods (2019) aren’t a significant improvement over their predecessors, so while they’re well worth a look if you’re buying your first pair of true-wireless buds, if you have...

Apple AirPods 2 release date, news and rumors

 

AirPods 2 haven't quite landed yet.

We thought we were getting the AirPods 2 when Apple announced a new version of the true wireless buds...but it turns out, we've only got the new AirPods (2019), an updated version of the originals.

This Apple AirPods deal is the best we've seen: Save £30 on the original Apple buds

 

Following the launch of AirPods 2, BT.com is offering a £30 discount on the original AirPods, dropping the price to £129

Other differences include being able to access Siri directly from the AirPods 2 – before you'd have to use your phone – and a 50% boost in talk time. For the first time, customers can now add a personal engraving to the AirPods cases for free, too.

AirPods vs AirPods 2: What's new?

 

We compare Apple's original wireless earbuds with their brand-new successors

We’re not holding out hope for an improvement in audio performance but, fingers crossed, AirPods 2 will deliver more at the same price as their predecessors.
