What's in the box

  • Wireless Charging Case

While these AirPods are much more iterative than they are innovative, they’re still by far the best truly wireless earbuds for Apple hardware users, and they come with even better seamless pairing thanks to enhancements made possible by the company’s brilliant in-house chip design team.

If you don’t own wireless earbuds at all, it’s definitely worth shopping around. Again, the $150 Jabra Elite 65t and the $130 Samsung Galaxy Buds are great AirPods alternatives, especially if you’re not committed to living in the Apple ecosystem. If you’re committed to being an Apple fan, though, the AirPods are better than ever.

If you haven’t yet jumped on the AirPods train and you know they’ll fit in your ears (if the wired EarPods that come with every iPhone fit you, the AirPods will, too), they are still among the best truly wireless headphones on the market, with great battery life, solid connectivity, great ease of use, and pretty good sound quality. They even work great for Android users, just like the first model.
