    Apple released the second-gen Airpods with little fanfare - so are the new Airpods secretly great, or just another overpriced gadget for Apple fanboys?

    I knew as soon as I saw the originals, "holy shit it's the not-worth-$30 buds but wireless, and they want how much?" It's insane, you can get Marley buds with controls, braided cable, aluminum and wood construction, and great sound for the price for $30 CAD, these were the buds you replaced when you got your ipod touch 5g

    If we're being very rigid on our definition of "earbuds" (meaning that there are indeed two of them rather than a single bud) then yes, Apple was the first. Bluetooth earpieces have been around for a long time though, Apple just made two of them and put them in a charging case. 😂

    I actually don't get why people love these so much lol. I tried my friend's airpods, brand new. The low end is practically wiped out clean, so I can't enjoy songs with bass in them. They're quiet and definitely overpriced. I'm a music producer, and of course I wouldn't use earbuds for production. But I bought an amazing pair of professionally made headphones with bass adjusters for only $40. I get so much more, and the audio quality is top notch. So what's so crazy about airpods? The older wired earphones have pretty good low end compared to these new ones

    @Linus: you should Mention the big Problems with the Air Pod 2: for example, if you tell ur iPhone to forget the Bluetooth device "airpods" while one of them is not working instead of useing the button on the airpod case to reset, that you brick your airpods and there is no way to fix it. not even for Apple. the light will blink white. continously but the pods don't connect anymore.

    WHY do YOU lInus keep pointing out that these are expensive if you are an Android user? You think we are all fucking cheap!? Airpods are the same price as buds on Amazon in the UK shops - we just don't get them as they don't fucking work with Android

    You really are a cocky judgemental mother fucker!

    wow you pay extra for wireless charging!? of COURSE you do its Apple - they even sell fast chargers to customers. I still ask WHY people buy this shit. I like my Galaxy buds by the way- you know the ones that come with wireless charging already. 6:15 yes having the NSA always listening and always being recorded with what you say - if you think thats nice - then you are simple

    I use Redmi AirDots with my iPhone 8 Plus because I'm one of those people that are wealthy enough to buy iPhone, but aren't wealthy enough for their accessories.
    And Redmi AirDots are actually decent. But I think I should've bought the Xiaomi AirDots...
