Apple AirPods 2 came out as a surprise earlier this month! These wireless earbuds have now started to reach those who had ordered them. However, for the price that the buyers have paid, a number of them are disappointed with the performance of the new AirPods from Apple.
Let us take a closer look at the second-generation AirPods from Apple and at the problems that the users are facing:
Apple AirPods 2: Why are Users Upset?
The users of Apple’s second-generation AirPods are pretty upset with the performance of the device. The reviews generally complain of no significant difference from the first-generation AirPods.
Moreover, some users have also pointed out that they are facing frequent disconnections and drops in the connectivity. Nevertheless, the biggest complaint here is that Apple AirPods 2 are pretty much the same as the older AirPods. Hence, there is no point in purchasing new AirPods if you already own the first generation!
Moreover, Apple has also released a new firmware update for the older AirPods which improves the clarity as well as Facetime and Siri audio.
Price vs Performance: Is it Worth Buying?
Apple AirPods 2 price starts at $159 with the charging case. Those who opt for the wireless charging case pay $199 for the second-generation AirPods. Users can also purchase the wireless case separately for $79.
Finally, are Apple AirPods 2 worth the price you pay for them? Given that they sound pretty much the same as the older AirPods, there is no point in upgrading from the older ones to the newer ones. However, if you want to buy new AirPods, the second-generation earbuds are pretty good!
