For those of you who do not know, Apple has its own wireless earbuds called AirPods. The original AirPods were released late 2016 and although funky looking at first, the product was a success. After a couple years of waiting, people were eager for the new release and the wait is officially over. AirPods 2 have gone on sale but the fanbase is disappointed because not much has changed.
Slight better battery life, upgraded processor, and voice activated Siri are the only notable changes for the AirPods 2. People expected different colors along with design changes and bio-metric features. There was rumors about noise-cancelling elements and possible water resistance features that are now expected for the third generation. It is hard to justify spending $160 for wireless earbuds especially with all the competition now. For $40 more, Apple sells a wireless charging case for the AirPods 2, or about a $70 upgrade for existing users without the wireless charging case. The hardcore fans will be most bothered by these subtle upgrades. For the typical consumer who does not care so much about features, the original AirPods can be bought at a reasonable discount.
