Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • Apple AirPods 2019 have vivid and powerful sound with a solid soundstage and clean vocals
  • Enhanced background noise filtering improves call quality and allows people on the other end to hear you better in outdoor environments
  • Seamless pairing with all Apple devices connected to the same iCloud account
  • The H1 chip combined with Bluetooth 5 significantly reduces delays in watching videos or games on iOS devices
  • Simply activate Siri by saying "Hi Siri" instead of double-tapping one of the Airpods
  • Manage volume and skip tracks forward or backward while playing music with Siri
  • New Apple AirPods weigh just 0.14 ounce and are gently settle into ears without any uncomfortable pressure even during long listening sessions
  • The same battery capacity as the first generation of Apple AirPods, now with 50% longer talk time (more than 1 hour)
  • Fast fuel technology offers an extra 3 hours of playback or 2 hours of talk time with only 15 minutes of charging time

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • For 159 US dollars, Airpods 2 are expensive wireless buds, especially when you can get Samsung Galaxy Buds for $129
  • The design of new AirPods is identical to the original model, which is over two years old
  • Unique design doesn't fit everyone and there are no silicone ear tips that would allow you to find the best fit for your ears
  • When it comes to higher-frequency sounds, Apple headphones sound a bit harsh, and they're not bass heavy earbuds on the market
  • In noisy environments, competitors’ models still sound better with richer sound and more bass
  • You can tell Siri to turn the volume up/down or skip the track back and forth only with Apple music, not Spotify
  • Special features such as fast pairing and Siri's “stay-on” are not available to Android users
  • You can't connect to more than one device at a time like other Bluetooth earbuds in the same price range
  • These new Apple’s wireless, entirely cord-free earbuds are not officially water or sweat-resistant, that makes them less suitable for gym sessions
  • Just white color, no other option that matches your phone’s color

Highlights

  • Auto on and auto connect
  • Easy setup for all Apple devices
  • Quick access to Siri by saying “Hey Siri”
  • Double-tap to play track or fast forward
  • New Apple H1 headphone chip provides faster wireless connectivity to your device
  • Quick charge in the case
  • Use lightning connector to charge the Airpod case
  • Rich, high-quality sound and clear voice calls
  • Seamless switching between apple devices connected to the same iCloud account
