    Nope. I just took the charging case and use my old airpods. The new airpods are just in the box. Kaya worried ako if ok s'ya to keep it as it is or if not, I shall offer it to anyone who is interested.

    Would've bought it when I thought I lost my Right airpod. Luckily found it lying on a hallway.

    Yeah, only Powermac sells them separately I think. I inquired na rin when I thought I lost it. They also told me these were on an order basis.

    I've had mine since January 2017 and my pair can still hold enough charge to keep me occupied while waiting at the airport for about 3 hours

    Anyone knows where to find an elago silicone case here in the Philippines. I only found one seller in lazada but only two colors are available. I am hoping to find other color options.

    This was just the question I wanted to ask when I checked out this thread.

    I use my AirPods mainly for conference calls and have noticed that battery life has decreased severely. I get the low battery tone about an hour into using a fully charged pair of the earbuds and they die about an hour or less later.

    I love the AirPods but this battery life thing is kind of bummer considering that these things are not cheap.

    Seems too that others are suffering the same battery life degradation over time.

    My Airpods is over a year old and can still last more than 4 to 5 hours of continuous use.

    I got lucky when Beyond the Box replaced my AirPods earlier this year. I hopped inside hoping to get a battery replacement (for a fee), but I somehow ended up getting the replacement for free. No defect present other than the battery had already gone through many charge cycles that consequently contributed to the poor battery life.

    I only found out later through a friend that battery replacement isn't supposed to be free unless there's a defect. Battery replacement is pretty straightforward: under warranty, they just hand you a new pair at $49 each. Otherwise it's $69, the same price quoted should you misplace your pair. You might as well purchase a new pair at that price point.

    Even though Apple did not launch the Airpods 2 in their October 30 event, there's still hope that we'll see the upgraded model in late November or early December this year. New Airpods models (A2031 and A2032) recently showed up in the Bluetooth SIG regulatory database last Nov 1.

    The first model was added to the same database on November 20, 2016, and Apple launched it on December 13, 2016.

    I'm experiencing the same. Mine can only hold up to less than an hour (usual music app listening/bought last april2017). What was the reason behind? is there any other issues with the battery? I guess, BTB won't cover the expense of replacing it for free if apple didn't have a recall or a free-replacement program. What do you think? TIA.

    BT 5.0 will fix all these issues like battery life and longevity issues.

    If we can get 7-8 hours from the new version, 5 hours after 2 years of use and 3 hours after another 2 years, it makes it more sulit.

    Nakalagay siya sa cart ko actually. And then noong ichecheck out ko na siya, nagkakaerror ang system nila. Noong nirefresh ko na para sa payment, out of stock na siya. Talo ata ako sa pabilisan ng pindot. Hahaha. Daming nakaabang din siguro. :LOL:

    Has anyone resolved the decreasing left airpod battery issue? I'm getting so frustrated over this. I can't listen to my music like I used to before. :(
