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

I knew as soon as I saw the originals, "holy shit it's the not-worth-$30 buds but wireless, and they want how much?" It's insane, you can get Marley buds with controls, braided cable, aluminum and wood construction, and great sound for the price for $30 CAD, these were the buds you replaced when you got your ipod touch 5g

Apple originally put the LED *INSIDE* the case? Is this the famous Apple design I've been hearing about?

It’s a refresh, not a completely new model, so it shouldn’t be reviewed as such. I don’t understand how giant channels do something like this

Oh I know they will probably sell the accesories seperately, like all the other products that apple have made.

Apple: "It's called AirPods. Not AirPods 2. It's just a minor update." Linus: "AIRPODS 2? IS APPLE EVEN TRYING??" huh...?

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.
