The second-generation AirPods from Apple were released in 2019 and are an improved version of the original AirPods. Currently available on Amazon for $166, these AirPods (2nd-Gen) offer a range of upgrades and features.
Although they are not the newest wireless earbuds available in the market, one of the most notable features of the second-generation AirPods is wireless charging.
In terms of battery life, the second-gen AirPods outperform the original model, offering up to 5 hours of listening time or 3 hours of talk time on a single charge. With the charging case, users can have up to 24 hours of listening time or 18 hours of talk time. This is a significant improvement compared to the original AirPods, which offered only 2 hours of talk time.
The 2nd-Gen AirPods also come equipped with Apple’s H1 chip, providing faster and more stable connectivity than the first-generation AirPods. The H1 chip also enables hands-free “Hey Siri” support, allowing users to interact with their AirPods without needing to use their phone or touch the AirPods.
