Apple leaves a mark on every product. A mark of quality, a mark of excellence, a mark of a memorable and unique design. Apple's Airpods also belong to the same category. The 1st generation of AirPods came into the picture On December 13, 2016. That was the first wireless earbuds introduced by the apple with some stunning features.
Apple added solid battery life (more than 24 hours of battery life) with a charging case, automatically connected to the device, fast charging, built-in microphone that filters any background music, and gives you crystal clear and noise-free voice, phone calls and interactions with Siri. These top-class earbuds of Apple work with the W1 chip. This was all about the first generation of airpods.
The new and improved version of Apple Airpods with charging case was first available on March 20, 2019, with some remarkable improvements. Without further ado let's quickly come to the features of Apple Airpods with charging case. If you are an Apple lover you know the legacy, you know what exactly the Apple is.
After the huge popularity of the 1st generation, Apple came with it's improved version AirPods gen.2. Some people say if you have an airpod of 1st gen. you don't need the airpod of the 2nd generation but that's not completely true, there is a difference between them. If you are looking for awesome earbuds then here are a few reasons why you should think about Apple AirPods generation 2.
If you are already using 1st gen. AirPods you know all the details about AirPods and it's specifications. If you haven't used it yet, let me quickly summarize it for you. The second generation Airpods with powerful H1 chip truly enhanced its connectivity and battery life as well as it's speed.
If you already used the 1st generation then you will feel the difference with this improved version. Charging case comes with an LED charging indicator so you can easily check its charging status. 5 hours of battery life with a single charge and more than 24 hrs of battery life with a charging case smoothly serves you for the whole day.
This second generation airpods gives a smooth and pleasant performance with Dual beamforming microphones, Dual optical sensors, Motion-detecting accelerometer, and Speech-detecting accelerometer. You can listen to the music, talk, or play games with a joyful experience.
Now let's talk about some of its drawbacks. It is neither waterproof nor sweat or water-resistant so don’t use EarPods underwater. Some users faced bad noise cancellation experiences, though it's not a common issue. Overall Apple Airpods are a decent choice for daily use.
How is Design and Build Quality of Airpods?
1st generation's Airpods was truly remarkable with its user-friendly design. so Apple hasn't made any big changes in the design of the 2nd generation, neither change in design nor in color. These Apple AirPods with Wired Charging Case are available in white color only.
These are totally wire-free and made from shiny white plastic. you might have experienced many times that when you wear the earbuds in the ear it does not stay stable but Apple tried to design these AirPods which comfortably fit all. The perfect shape of the Airpod serves the majority of ears though some people complain that it doesn't fit them.
Airpods have a tail which comes down and offers more stability. This 2nd generation Apple wireless AirPods gives you freedom of use, you can use single or both the AirPods as per your requirement. Another reason to love this apple's Airpods is its environment-friendly design. Apple takes care to reduce the environmental impact with the following features.

How is Sound Performance of Airpods?
Everybody knows that Apple design the product quite perfectly. Airpods also exist in the same category. Category of the best design. All new H1 chips deliver better and faster connectivity that gives 2 times faster when switching between devices and 1.5 times faster connection times when you need to attain phone calls.
Speech detecting accelerometer and beam‑forming microphones form the best combination that gives the best listening and talking experience. Simple double tap option to play or skip forward the music.
Now let’s talk about sound quality. With the upgraded H1 chips overall sound quality became better. They have made everything decent. Decent bass and treble, Better clarity in sound, in the mid-tones they performed good. For podcasts airpods are perfect but the real issue comes when you talk about isolation of sound, it’s a little bit disappointing.
The second generation gives extra loudness compared to the 1st. If you notice the 1st generation airpods you will get that apple believes in natural and neutral sound balance. They intentionally avoid artificial bass boosting or treble enhancement. A single word is enough if you ask me about the sound quality of second generation, “Decent sound”.
