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

My $6 monoprice headphones got something crossed and they'll randomly turn clear up or clear down, or back and forth. I sleep with them in, I can say this is not a happy way to be woke up. I thought for sure my phone had a virus or something, but I swapped them out for an old pair (with only one working headphone) and the problem went away. They don't even have a volume control, my best guess is there is a flake of metal crossing the pins somewhere or something. I think that's how volume controls on headphones usually work.

Ah yes two tiny things not attached to a string or anything so you have two things to lose instead of one. Great idea.

almost everyone losing one of them. they don't fit the ear perfectly and that's why there is 0 noise cancelation, not even supression. I'll get sennheiser momentium wireless which costs a bit more but sound quality, ergonomy and noise canceling is just perfect.

The innovation died with Steve Jobs. He was the innovator/inventor. Apple is merely the updaters now.

People need to stop worshipping other people! Steve Jobs was the man with the money, not the man in the lab! All phones have technology that had thousands of inventions made by many, many, many people. And not one of them was named Stevey Joby!

I just got a pair a week ago and used them twice until I was forced to one man it due to my left AirPod mysteriously losing its ability to charge and honestly AirPods aren't worth the crippling anxiety that comes with wearing them, just thinking about the fact that I spent enough money to buy two pairs of shoes on one floating earbud... I'm going to starve to death when I go to college, if I even make it.

I cant imagine having a set of ear buds not connected by a cable. I mean i lose the ones with a 4 foot cable fairly often. there is no way in hell ide be able to keep these things from being lost for more then a few days at best.

AirPods II are the headphones they promised with a charging case a year ago, they were waiting to release them with the Airpower, but since there is no Airpower they just released them, as I remember Apple never released them stating the were better AirPods they just released them without any fanfare, So any wild expectations were solely in the media's mind.

VLight 8 days ago
You're in the exact same position that I'm in. I have AirPods, with an S9+, because I got AirPods when I still had an iPhone. AirPods are truly amazing, and the main reason I love them so much, is that I can have them in for a long time, without them hurting my ears. Once my AirPods reach the end of its life span, I'll probably get some Jaybirds, since I have no intention of using an iPhone ever again.

The more “advanced” Apple music devices get, the more determined I am to keep using my “obsolete” iPod Classic. Headphone jack (FTW!) Plays lossless, high quality audio. (160gb of it) Plays music without internet connection. Only one battery to charge.

Yep, I'll stick with my far superior audio quality wired headphones and continue laughing at the suckers buying overpriced crap likes these and beats.
+A random Human being You would be wrong. I've tried them, they are over priced shit. This actually isn't even a debatable thing unless you are an idiot. Bluetooth audio is empirically worse in quality due to compression than the wired equivalent.

OmegaGamingNetwork you Wouldn’t say that if you tried them.

Why would they update the airpods without doing something about the sound quality? Other headphones at their price point outshine them tenfold here
DerpEye 11 days ago
Air pods are the most popular wireless earbuds, because Android users don't need wireless earbuds, mostly. And the audio jackless Android smartphones don't actually sell so well, you don't see them much around.

I wanted Bluetooth earbuds until I found the EarStudio DAC/Amp on Amazon. Better sound quality through my wired earphones. I just clip the EarStudio to my collar on my shirt and zip tie my good earphones cable to be shorter. Not as convenient as completely wireless earbuds, but you can’t get better sound quality otherwise.
