Tay Smith ooh ok,that makes sense. I was wondering why they are selling them for last year price but you for sure gave me incite to why they did it.
Tay Smith
Tay Smith Month ago
Nesly Leonvil I look at it as more of an updated version hint to why they’re not calling it the AirPods 2 and they’re the same price as the first generation. I heard later this year or next year they’re suppose to do something different with them.

I’m a apple user and I have AirPods but damn, apple really couldn’t include the AirPods with the new iPhones like Samsung? They also couldn’t give us different colors? The only good thing about it is that it is the same price. I’m surprised these didn’t cost $500. Honestly it is basically the same exact thing just one more hour of talking and being able to say “Hey Siri”. I’ll just stick to my AirPods. I’m fine needing to touch my AirPods. Plus I talk on the phone at the maximum 15 minutes per day and most days I don’t even talk on the phone so there’s no reason for me to get that 1 hour more of talk time. Thanks but no thanks.

So.. no noise isolation/cancellation? I’ll stick with my first gen air pods then and save my money. That’s gotta be the only reason I would upgrade.

I am so disappointed in AirPod 2.0... I think I’ll try the new Galaxy ear buds... PSYCH!!
The difference is u have to pay 200 dollars just for a wireless feature. 🖕 apple I’m keeping my first ones.

“Significant changes” is a bit of an over statement

These aren’t really for upgrading, it’s for people who don’t have the AirPods. Also, I’d rather charge my AirPods with a wire than wirelessly, so basically it’s the same price, for people who don’t want to wirelessly charge it.

AirPods two is not worth the buy, like, no black color, and who even needs hey Siri? I could just double tap on my AirPods. I could also care less about the wireless charging. no hate, just meh opinion

Completely Disappointed, for one the main issue with AirPods is fit, didn’t even try to address that. Two compared to galaxy buds, less features, more money. No thanks Apple, I’ll get galaxy buds. Maybe when those wear out, *if* you have a comparable product for a comparable price, I’ll bite but knowing Apple, that won’t be the case.

Does anyone no how to tell the difference between the 1 & 2 to make sure your not getting ripped off (£159 ones)

WHY, on their official video, the Airpods look seamless, but the actual product is glued together. I HATE that line and how quickly it collects dirt. From day two of using, that line was impossible to clean!

I'm coming of this video now lol, I just wanted to see everyone's reactions.. I have reached my conclusion... Over 87% agree that they are disappointed in this product... Nothing is new apart from the case.. it's not new at all Case closed.....I'm disappointed and I'm not even a apple fan.I really thought it was gonna be more than just a case...SMH

That background music is too loud, and it's very hard to hear what you saying. Directors/Editors - play music at the beginning and at the end to get similar effect without annoying audience. Thanks

After 2 years of airpods 1, the new airpods should have more features. Wireless charging should have come standard, not extra (just like iphone xs should have got a fastcharge for its price tag). Imho, im a bit over and tired of Apple and its price tag with not much improvement.

Sad, right after Galaxy Buds came out they are adding a wireless charging case and yet again claim innovation. $199 for literally Airpods 1, with a little less latency and a new case. At this point, you pay for the brand, the logo. Apple is probably one of the greediest companies at this moment. My Wife who always loved Apple and iPhones is finally making the switch, she's had enough of this repetitive BS and corporate greed.
