Specifically, the new AirPods are also said to deliver 50% more talk time, and connects to devices two times faster than the original AirPods. "The world's best wireless headphones just got even better with the new AirPods".

What's better, the AirPods 2 now feature "Hey Siri" for the first time allowing you to issue voice commands without the need to double-tap on the side of one of your AirPods. If you're not looking to upgrade your current AirPods, you can consider getting the new Wireless Charging Case instead.

What do you think about 2nd generation Apple AirPods?

The new version looks and costs the same, at $159, and will be available in stores next week. As for voice-activated Siri on the AirPods? Meh.

Apple said the updated AirPods get a new Apple-designed H1 chip that delivers performance efficiencies, faster connect times, more talk time and hands-free "Hey Siri".

Apple has been quite busy this week as a number of products were announced in the past few weeks. The AirPods with the normal case are $219, while the AirPods with the wireless charging case will cost you $269. Plus, the metal snap keeps the case closed, adding another layer of protection to your delicate AirPods charging case.

AirPods second generation is updated with H1 chip which highly improves the connectivity. The original AirPods offered five hours of use, with a total 24 hours of battery life when taking into consideration their charging case, for comparison.

AirPods pair up with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Mac, and thanks to the H1 chip, you can easily switch between devices.

By "50% more talktime", Apple means an extra hour of battery life during phone calls. It houses the LED on the front unlike first generation AirPods which had it inside the case. Created to push more deeply inside your ear than Apple's own design, they should help to significantly increase stability, while also blocking most external noise.

The second-generation AirPods are not that different from the previous version, especially because of the white stalk that was kept and looked like the cables of a set of earphones has been cut off.
