    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.

    More Magical Than Ever

    • Written by Richard B from Newark

    I am extremely happy with my new AirPods, the wireless charging is great (please Apple release AirPower) the Hey Siri feature I am absolutely love, I had the case engraved and it looks amazing, also I don't think Apple have made any claims about this but I am 100% sure that these have even better sound quality than my original AirPods.

    Quite Simply the Best Wireless EarBuds

    • Written by Ameer Ali O from London

    Easy connection, reliable, feature-rich, and seamless.
    The audio quality is fantastic, especially on the AirPod’s (2nd Generation)z
    Transitioning from more than one Apple product is an easy process thanks to the fact that upon set up the AirPod’s are attached to your iCloud account. Extremely low latency, which I find very noticeable when typing and hearing the click noises.
    They are the best truest wireless EarBuds on the market, even more so than the replica Samsung offerings. Battery life is outstanding and the Wireless Charging is an amazing feature.
    Seeing as AirPower won’t be releasing, it would be nice if Apple could make their own stand alone Wireless Charger with their fancy animations and sound effects that was going to be exclusive for the AirPower mat.
    Only complaint is of course price. But not everyone is on a budget

    Absolutely Amazing

    • Written by Jamie K from Wirral

    Had the first generation AirPods and sold them on eBay so I could buy these new ones and they are utterly fantastic.

    These earphones really are an amazing bit of tech, I love the fact they pair with all my Apple devices so easily, the sound is amazing and wireless charging is a bonus. Battery life is also brill and if you do run out of juice just put them in the case for 10-15 mins and they are charged. So so easy.

    Couldn't recommend them enough, if you are thinking about these then stop thinking and just get a pair - you won't regret it.

    They don’t work with Skype (for business)

    • Written by Daniel P from St Albans

    The AirPods work just as covered by most reviews (perfect functionality as long as you stay within the Apple ecosystem, sound that would be average if they were £15 headphones) but there is one major flaw - although they will pair with a Windows 10 laptop they will not work with Skype (for business).

    This may not matter to you but as using them for conference calls was one of my main use cases I sent them back.

    The Skype issue is not well advertised, but is documented if you search for it.

    Yet another badly executed product

    • Written by Andrew C from Newton Abbot

    What’s the deal with double tap only working once?

    If that’s not bad enough I had a bent iPad Pro OUT OF THE BOX that is within engineering parameters. Thank god my Network provider is shipping a replacement so I don’t have to listen to the sanctimonious BS the Genius Tech’s provide. Buy with Apple and the Bend is within tolerance, no action taken. Get your spirit levels ready, check it and send it straight back to them if it is and buy another.

    12 years with Apple and in the past few years it’s one issue after another after another after another or they pull products.

    Time to end your constant drivel and man up! Bent is acceptable my backside. Build me a flat iPad for £1669 you arrogant bunch of (Insert a word to choose)

    It’s getting VERY old.

    Great ideas not so greatly executed.

    • Written by Geoffrey B from Liverpool

    I gave them a go as I had been interested in them for a while. I love that they connected instantly out of the box to my iPhone and they switch seamlessly between other Apple devices. Stick them back in the case when done and they can even charge wirelessly on a Qi-enabled charging puck.

    The microphones are also exceptional. Using them for calls nobody could tell I was wearing earphones. The tap for commands is also a great idea too.

    And that is where my love of them ends. The sound quality is average, no bass and does very little to drown out ambient noise. I also found them unusable on flights. Not what you expect when you pay big money for earphones.

    Then there is the fit. Great for people with smaller ear canal openings. But mine kept slipping round and falling out. I have decided to take them back.
