Apple AirPods 2 Unboxing & Review!

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

Hey guys what is going on this is AI Apple D these are the air pods to the air pods to our apples second entry into the wearable headphone market and for the most part it stays true to its predecessor it doesn't really change too much even the unboxing experience is pretty much exactly the same you might ask why should I even buy this if it's the same well let's take a closer look the new air pots come with a new wireless charging case there are minor cosmetic changes here that has this little light on the front where it didn't before if you look on the back the pairing button has been moved

Slightly and also that little hinge that used to be polished is now like a matte silver color but all in all there's still just air pods and that's kind of the theme here now let's quickly talk about sound quality these are not gonna sound that much different from the first generation which didn't sound very different from Apple's wired headphones I will say the sound quality is a bit better than the first gen probably due to the new Bluetooth 5 capabilities and the new h1 chip which I'll talk about here in a minute but in my experience music and phone calls do sound better

They still pair instantly to your phone just by opening the case I think it's actually gotten faster because of the new processor so yeah go figure oh and fun fact they changed how the case sounds when you close it it's not as high-pitched as it was before it's either that I'm going crazy now like I said the second generation ear pods has bluetooth 5 basically this is gonna mean you're gonna have better sound quality more range less disconnecting and lower latency it's also supposed to be more energy efficient but I can't vouch for that just yet

Apple stowe advertises 5 hours of battery life in the air pods and an additional 24 hours inside the case if you're just using one air pod it will give you a separate indicator in your menu you can also check the battery level inside the widget for batteries which you can add to your Notification Center if you scroll down the Edit button and drag it to your enabled widgets now let's talk about that new wireless charging case this is where if you have a wireless charging pad you can just place the inter pods

Right on top of that pad and will begin to charge now I won't say wireless charging air pods are a huge deal if you don't have a wireless charger obviously this won't mean anything to you but I think this feature will come in handy later down the road when maybe Apple puts power-sharing into their iPhones where you can wirelessly share power from your phone's battery like Samsung did with the Galaxy S 10 if they do bring that in the next iPhone I think this would be a killer combo now they did something a little bit weird with this year's lineup of ear pods is that

They sell the air pots to in the old non-wireless case but with the new headphones like the air pods themselves which starts at the same price as the previous generation and then they have the one with the wireless charging case that we've been reviewing starts at $200 and also they sell the wireless case by itself separately so you can upgrade your first january positive look like secondary air pods and i don't know the lineups a little bit confusing the case itself costs $80 which isn't too bad but considering if you already have air pods you already spent money on them it's a

Little ridiculous oh and they don't give you a lightning cable if you just buy the case separately so uh yeah you're on your own with that now let's talk about that new processor previously the air pods had what's called a w1 chip the air pods to have an updated version called the h1 chip these are going to be responsible for managing bluetooth 5.0 it helps maintain the connection between your devices and are responsible for any air pause gestures you use as long as your device is on the same Apple ID it will show up in your control center just tap on the air pods and they'll connect

Instantly the pairing process is going to be faster more responsive there's gonna be less latency in your audio which are all welcome changes apple says the pairing speed will be up to two times fashion and the last ones and so far that's been pretty accurate you guys can see here I'm flipping open the case and then closing it and flipping it again it just knows when I'm going to use the air pods or not now if you don't have an Apple watch you will have to go straight to your phone to it just volume controls because for some reason they still didn't add that in to

The air possum selves and when you have both of them in as soon as you pull one of them out your music pauses or whatever you're watching it doesn't have to be music until you put it back in your ear or you put it back in the case now if you go to the Bluetooth settings inside your settings app you'll be able to adjust what gestures do what so you can set which ear pods double tap gesture does a certain thing like skip a track rewind maybe play or pause and this is on top of the automatic gestures like when you take your earbud out everything pauses does little things

Like that make the first generation air pods really well worth the money however with the second gen you have one more automatic gesture and that is Siri so usually when a stupid song comes on you just go skip it right but what if your hands are full you can't reach your phone or your ear pods to skip it maybe you're carrying stuff around so you end up listening to that stupid song cuz you can't skip it yeah don't try to do it with your shoulders it just makes you look stupid with the second generation is great because my hands are free and I could just use my voice to change

Whatever I want which could really come in handy alright sure ear pods too kind of the same as the first gen but that's not a bad thing especially if you have multiple Apple devices these are a must-have yeah I don't think having wireless charging is worth another $40 but Apple still sells these at the regular price without that feature so if you just want some air pods some improved air pods then these are definitely the ones to go for now this also means the first gen are probably going to get some discounts I'll be posting those on my Twitter as they come

Out so be sure you follow me there and I'll see you guys in the next one
