Brings wireless charging and hands-free Siri into the mix with longer call times and clearer audio

from Tom's Guide

Faster, smarter, longer-lasting, the AirPods 2 are still at the top of the heap for iPhone owners. Apple has given people what they want with wireless charging and a hands-free approach to Siri. And the fact that the buds offer longer talk time and faster pairing are icing on the cake, especially since the old AirPods' pairing was near instantaneous.

Not a huge improvement on their predecessors

from TechRadar

While new features like wireless charging and faster pairing are useful, the AirPods (2019) aren’t a significant improvement over their predecessors, so while they’re well worth a look if you’re buying your first pair of true-wireless buds, if you have the original AirPods it’s hard for us to recommend upgrading.

They're good but not for everyone

If you're looking to just listen to music or a few podcasts, the new Airpods are a good choice since the connection never drops and the battery life is longer than the previous version. Plus you can also charge the case wirelessly with any Qi wireless charger. Just don't expect to get a great sound experience and be prepared to lose at least one.

If you're looking to just listen to music or a few podcasts, the new AirPods are a good choice since the connection never drops and the battery life is longer than the previous version. Plus you can also charge the case wirelessly with any Qi wireless charger. Just don't expect to get a great sound experience and know that some of the cool features like auto-pause and "Hey Siri" functionality are iOS-only.

If you have an iPhone — or are in the Apple ecosystem — the new AirPods are no-brainer. They are fast, smart and deliver class audio performance — even if it’s not better than the first AirPods. The competition is heating up in the wireless earbuds or ‘hearables’ category and brands are offering more than good  sound. The AirPods are a more complete package than the rest because they remain easy to pair, are ridiculously comfortable, light and offer excellent audio quality.

There are better alternatives

At $199, the Apple AirPods 2 won’t cost you too much when compared to other True Wireless options out there.  But that’s probably the best thing about this earphone, because, apart from battery life in relation to talk time, they generally suck.  For the most basic, humdrum listening activities, they might suffice, but if you’re truly looking for decent-sounding earphones, better alternatives exist.

However, if your older AirPods are wearing off (probably the battery is dying sooner or if the pods are damaged, opting for the newer ones makes sense. If you are looking at buying AirPods for the first time, the second generation is the best choice.

The new AirPods are still the best all-around true wireless earbuds for iPhone users — by a lot. Like the first-generation AirPods, they’re super easy to pair with any iOS devices, and they’re arguably the most compact and travel-friendly of all true wireless earbuds. The improvements — better processor, battery life and connectivity, as well as wireless charging — are all nice features, but in the end, they don’t feel like night-and-day upgrades over the first-generation AirPods.

Nothing sounds more convenient than these

from The Indian Express

The primary reason to pick up the AirPods, new or old, is the convenience they offer. There are no wireless earphones that work so seamlessly with your Apple devices, offer great audio quality and can last a full day on battery. To that mix you now add the added convenience of wireless charging and a voice assistant. That is the AirPods 2.
