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'm an apple fan and have an iPhone but you have to be clueless to use airpods. You can get another TWS for a lot less $ and that's better in every way. Melomania, Tevi, Creative, etc.

I’ve always wondered why people liked the AirPods. The design is absolute ass. The stem is humungous and the shape makes it a terrible seal that looks like it’ll easily fall out. Disappointed. I honestly would rather get one of those third party wireless earbuds off Amazon for like 50 dollars with a way better design.

Riley, i feel for you buddy, i have asymmetrical ears too. have completely given up on in ear type headphones altogether, and even some over ear type ones are an issue cuz on ear will seal a bit differently than the other ear which is really annoying.

They sound ok nothing special really. It is pretty impressive that that sound as good as they do for being completely wireless. A couple of my friends have them. I prefer headphones because the Apple earbud design never worked for me and they’re pretty expensive

I never liked the apple headphone designs since their inception they've always felt cheap and will constantly fall out of my ears cause someone thought it was smart to coat them in glossy plastic I'd rather spend half the price for a pair of wireless earbuds that sound better and have the normal earbud design that has interchangeable rubber grips that may be different depending on the individual but the argument "oh apple always makes top quality stuff" hasn't held up in years
