    Hey ho. Airpods 1 will be relegated to workout duties. Battery life now is 1 hour and 30 mins (music).

    2 years this May. Still useable for short walks/runs and gym sessions. Travel and conference calls are a no-go these days, i find myself having to charge it far too often to justify using it on a long haul flight.

    Woohoo! My Gen 1 can finally retire. 2 years and 3 (almost) months. The price increase isn't too bad, given that it only went up by around Php500.00. Will definitely get one soon. I hope our APRs will give cash discounts.

    Still in White???

    Old airpods run around 3 hours tops but newer true wireless buds can run longer and get multiple charges on their wireless cases (cue Jabra Elite 65ts and B&O, not to mention the new Samsung wireless buds), have Siri integration, and more adaptable features...so will i get this one?

    Only if they were Black.

    Are the new AirPods waterproof? Anyway, I’m a bit underwhelmed with the new ones. I guess i was expecting a much more improved design and a black version.

    Was torn between the AirPods and the Galaxy Buds... but after the AirPods refresh yesterday I ordered a black Galaxy Buds straight from Samsung... I'll just wait for the rumored 2020 AirPods re-design..

    I was hoping the new Airpods would have noise cancelling and better sound quality.. if this was the case I would buy in a heartbeat.

    But ohwell, looks like my decision to purchase 1st gen Airpods just a couple of months ago wasn't a bad decision after all...

    Its a good update, the wireless charging will be a welcome change, but it took them about two years to come up with such incremental updates so there’s really no “wow” factor with it. Will probably still get one once it’s available locally, but will not be eagerly awaiting it unlike the first gen when i made sure to get it the moment it arrived in manila

    hmm. I can see plenty of cheaper alternatives with better sound quality and with built in App. The Jabra Elite comes to mind.

    Ugh! No longer available in the PH online store (or perhaps not yet available, I don’t know).

    Mm...the rumors last year became true. The refresh version was for this year BUT Airpods Version 2.0 will be launched next year. Among the anticipated features: health integration and, of course, all- new design. The current design is 2016-ancient.
