    Apple released the second-gen Airpods with little fanfare - so are the new Airpods secretly great, or just another overpriced gadget for Apple fanboys?

    Apple: "It's called AirPods. Not AirPods 2. It's just a minor update."

    Do people know that Bluetooth headphones will never sound as good as a wired pair, also I have never lost wired headphones I’ve lost wireless ones. It’s really just a gimmick imo

    Airpods look like $5 headphones with the wires cut off

    If we're being very rigid on our definition of "earbuds" (meaning that there are indeed two of them rather than a single bud) then yes, Apple was the first. Bluetooth earpieces have been around for a long time though, Apple just made two of them and put them in a charging case. 😂

    Get Jabra elites, or really any other decent brand of wireless ear buds. Got jabra about a week ago and would rather get hit by a bus than ever use those tampons Apple tries to pass as wireless ear buds

    They did the right thing by not changing anything in design. The only headphones which doesn’t annoy me and fits nicely are made by apple.

    I actually don't get why people love these so much lol. I tried my friend's airpods, brand new. The low end is practically wiped out clean, so I can't enjoy songs with bass in them. They're quiet and definitely overpriced. I'm a music producer, and of course I wouldn't use earbuds for production. But I bought an amazing pair of professionally made headphones with bass adjusters for only $40. I get so much more, and the audio quality is top notch. So what's so crazy about airpods? The older wired earphones have pretty good low end compared to these new ones

    I'm surprised no one talks about how much they hurt the ears. All Apple earbuds since the beginning have been garbage. Using them would be masochistic.

    i really don't understand the whole "only rich people have airpods" - they really aren't that expensive, considering how expensive iphones are - they're like the same price as every other wireless headphones

    @Linus: you should Mention the big Problems with the Air Pod 2: for example, if you tell ur iPhone to forget the Bluetooth device "airpods" while one of them is not working instead of useing the button on the airpod case to reset, that you brick your airpods and there is no way to fix it. not even for Apple. the light will blink white. continously but the pods don't connect anymore.

    WHY do YOU lInus keep pointing out that these are expensive if you are an Android user? You think we are all fucking cheap!? Airpods are the same price as buds on Amazon in the UK shops - we just don't get them as they don't fucking work with Android

    You really are a cocky judgemental mother fucker!

  • Pete Coventry

    wow you pay extra for wireless charging!? of COURSE you do its Apple - they even sell fast chargers to customers. I still ask WHY people buy this shit. I like my Galaxy buds by the way- you know the ones that come with wireless charging already. 6:15 yes having the NSA always listening and always being recorded with what you say - if you think thats nice - then you are simple

    You are so boastful it really does dim your shine... I have the pods as well, but also I know, not everyone in life is as fortunate as I (we) are in life. I also watch you put down your friend way too much, God bless you! Keep up the great job!!! Love your page🙇‍♀️🙏🖤

    So as usual, Apple insists that the market adapt to the product they feel like selling. Too bad people can't adapt the shape of their ears. I'll keep my Trekz Titaniums.

    I use Redmi AirDots with my iPhone 8 Plus because I'm one of those people that are wealthy enough to buy iPhone, but aren't wealthy enough for their accessories.
    And Redmi AirDots are actually decent. But I think I should've bought the Xiaomi AirDots...

      For what they cost, they should sound better than "completely acceptable".
