    Truly Awesome Upgrade!

    • Written by Andrew R from EDINBURGH

    I have been using the original AirPods for the last couple of months and they sound very good, however this version sound truly unbelievable!, in that their audio definition is so good that I actually felt like there were real instruments playing for me live. Listening to a track with a slow bass drum beat I could actually hear the qualities of the synthetic material being struck, not only that, I had a piano inside my head! Somehow the upgraded bluetooth and H1 processor have made an already excellent sounding product completely disappear into a world of real music and sounds. I am not overstating this, these new AirPods sound great!

    My experience of "Hey Siri" has been a bit hit and miss however you can change the double tap behaviour to activate Sire just like the old AirPods did. I also find that I have to frequently adjust the AirPods in my slightly off-spec ears which I imagine a lot of people are equipped with: Apple should release a silicone or rough latex cover to help keep these AirPods secure in different designs of ears.

    The two flaws I've mentioned should bring the rating down to three stars, however because I've been so impressed by the sound quality I actually am struggling not to give them the full five stars.
