AirPods with Charging Case
More magical than ever.
The new AirPods deliver the wireless headphone experience, re-imagined. Just pull them out of the charging case and they’re ready to use with your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad or Mac.
After a simple one-tap setup, AirPods work like magic. They’re automatically on and always connected. AirPods can even sense when they’re in your ears and pause when you take them out.
To adjust the volume, change the song, make a call or even get directions, simply say “Hey Siri” and make your request. You have the freedom to wear one or both AirPods, and you can play or skip forward with a double tap when listening to music or podcasts.
AirPods deliver five hours of listening time1 and three hours of talk time on a single charge.2 And they’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple charges for more than 24 hours of listening time.3 Need a quick charge? Just 15 minutes in the case gives you three hours of listening time4 or two hours of talk time.5
Powered by the all-new Apple H1 headphone chip, AirPods use optical sensors and motion accelerometers to detect when they’re in your ears. Whether you’re using both AirPods or just one, the H1 chip automatically routes the audio and engages the microphone. And when you’re on a call or talking to Siri, an additional speech-detecting accelerometer works with beamforming microphones to filter out external noise and focus on the sound of your voice.

Hi! It’s actually only the wireless charging feature. Both of these on the Apple Store are the 2nd G Hi! It’s actually only the wireless charging feature. Both of these on the Apple Store are the 2nd Generation, featuring the new H1 chip with “Hey Siri” and the faster connectivity and audio quality. If you look in the description and tech specs, both the $159 and $199 feature the same AirPods, with the only difference being the charging case. The wireless charging case may be purchased separately as well for $79. Hope this helps!

Funny, just thought of the same thing, so I tried it, since the Watch charger is Qi, but simply a sm Funny, just thought of the same thing, so I tried it, since the Watch charger is Qi, but simply a smaller coil (I hear that it might charge non-apple watches). I tried it with my AirPods case, and it does not work with the Apple Watch charger. It doesn't even recognize it. I also tried it with a non-Apple Watch charger. This charger seems to recognize the case (i.e. the light comes on, and the status says charging), but it does not actually charge, although it gets hot. I suspect that the coil is too small and/or does not provide enough current, I think it's only 350mA.
