Apple AirPods 2 vs Apple AirPods: what's the difference?

AirPods Refresh Brings Improved Battery Life Hands Free ‘Hey Siri’ Wireless Charging Case and More

The more expensive model will come in a wireless charging case and will be priced at $199.

We can't say whether the AirPods 2 are a marked improvement upon their predecessors until we carry out a full and thorough review, but features like wireless charging, "Hey Siri" functionality, and more reliable connectivity will probably only make using the true wireless buds a more seamless experience. Apple has not provided in-depth technical details about the underpinnings of the new H1 chip, focusing instead on the practical benefits of AirPods' new "custom audio architecture". Switching between devices while listening to music on is also reported to be two times faster thanks to improved connection times. Apple also added wireless charging to the case so you can plop your AirPods down on any Qi charging pad for a quick recharge. Both the regular and wireless charging cases hold enough juice to power AirPods for more than 24 hours. The wireless case can be recharged with Qi-compatible chargers, and it has an LED light to show the charge status.

The new AirPods are already up for pre-order and hit Apple Stores next week. Previously, AirPods could only activate Siri with tap gestures, or they could mirror the sound of "Hey Siri" activation from a nearby paired iOS device, but they could not summon Siri directly with the "Hey Siri" command. The new AirPods carry the same design and have changes underneath. If extra talk time, Hey Siri control and faster and more stable connections are important to you then you should notice a difference with the second generation of AirPods.

The new Apple AirPods run on a new chip called the H1 compared to the W1 chip found in the original AirPods. The H1 also means that "Hey Siri" comes to AirPods for the first time.
