Apple AirPods 2 review: even more wireless

  • Published on Mar 29, 2019
  • Apple’s AirPods 2 look and sound very familiar to the first-gen version, but the biggest change is the ability to wirelessly charge the case. The wireless charging case uses the Qi standard - just like the iPhone and countless Android phones on the market - so you can use the same charging pad as your phone to charge your AirPods case. Another important change - the new H1 chip that replaces the W1 chip of the first model and enables hands-free Siri access.

    Another protip: non-sealing headphones are gentler on your ears compared to the type that prevents air circulation in the ear canal. So a little worse sound quality means longer ear lifespan :)

      Gen 2 because they’re the same price? Just don’t buy the overpriced wireless charging case for 200$ it’s 144$ at Walmart and Best Buy

    I’m going to get some so I can use them for Music, Videos and Sports. Please tell me, how good is the sound quality? I’m looking for good Bass, good lows and Mediums. I’m not too worried about highs.

    Hey, I currently don’t have airpod 1 or 2 should I spend the extra 30 dollars to get the 2s or just get the ones?

    • Eric Liang
      Eric Liang 5 months ago

      RRMS MUSIC you don’t need to spend 30 extra dollars to get the 2s that just covers for the wireless charging case if you don’t need that stuff then just get the 2s with the standard case (same price as 1s) I don’t really think there’s a reason for getting 1s anymore

    The one thing I wish you covered is that if they're also the 'best wireless headphones' for exercising? I'm not really aware if they're sweat proof or if they can stay in ears without falling out during intense exercise. Otherwise, great video as usual

    I can’t believe you guys made a video review of the AirPods 2 when it’s practically the same product as the last ones, and not review the Galaxy Watch Active (not saying that’s SUPER different from other galaxy watches but more than AirPods 1 vs 2) and just give it a hands on. I love the Verge but sometimes you make me smh.
