The Airpods 2 have become the go-to option for many Apple fans, due to the convenience they provide, as well as the seamless integration they offer when paired with iOS devices, such as the iPhone. Despite this clear and obvious bias towards Apple’s own devices, however, the Airpods can be paired with any smartphone, provided it has Bluetooth.
The battery life of the Airpods 2 is excellent with the earphones lasting around 5 hours on a single charge, or 3 hours if being used for voice calls. This puts them in the same ballpark as most other wireless earphones. However, in most cases, they actually outperform their competition in this category.
The charging case is able to provide up to four charges before needing a refill, effectively taking the Airpods total battery life up to 24 hours. This means you should be able to go for days without needing to charge the case, especially if you are only using the Airpods for a few hours at a time.
The wireless version of the case is compatible with any wireless charger that uses Qi technology. This is great to see from Apple, as in the past, the company would have been far more likely to develop its own proprietary method for handling this feature.
When it comes to sound quality, the Airpods 2 are unlikely to take your breath away, but they perform well enough for the most part. The truth is, however, that the Airpods haven’t been designed to offer amazing audio. Instead, they exist to provide a simple, easy way to listen to various media free of clutter and distraction.
As for the Airpods design, everything about their appearance screams Apple. These earphones are clean, minimalistic, and offer very little in the way of unnecessary gimmicks. Apple has often been criticized for going too minimal with some of its products, but for a relatively simple device such as the Airpods, this design philosophy works exceptionally well.
Best Buy appears to be having a sale on the newly released Airpods Pro for Black Friday.
