Dreams could not quite measure up with the reality, since Apple just recently launched the AirPods 2 - that is, the followup to the first AirPods, as Apple has sold many millions of units of.
So there came not a version in black, as rumors otherwise stated. There is also no active noise reduction or hurtigopladning at the level that avid fans had hoped for.
Designed in the AirPods 2 is the same, so the improvements must be found in the detail. For example, you can now activate Siri by voice. Or that the battery and reaction times are improved.
Many have speculated over the new sound quality in the AirPods 2. Has 1’s and 2’s the same sound?
the Answer is a tjaaaaah, since Apple is not even highlighting the improvements on the lydfronten. And there is probably a good reason to, since the sound remains full-bodied and good, but on the other hand, does not provide surprising improvements.
we must instead find in the technical specifications, where the headphones now have Bluetooth 5 - but can't be connected to two devices at the same time. There is also a new H1-chip built-in, which according to Apple offers better call quality, faster connectivity to other devices and less delay of the signal.

the Chip also helps to improve the battery life, so now it is three hours of talk time or five hours of audio playback, before there is a need for a charging
I have not previously used the AirPods, and the sound quality has therefore surprised me. I expected that the sound would be closer to the normal wire earphones from Apple. And therefore, more paid for the wireless function than for sound quality.
today I have a quite different opinion, as the AirPods 2 both seem to be more noise cancelling and at the same time have a really good sound compared to other headphones.

AirPods 2 sits at the same time good in the ear. They are stuck and do not fall out, as I feared they would do. And once you've got them connected to the phone, they are very easy to use since you just have to open the case and take them out, after which they are immediately ready for use.
A negative thing about the headphones is that the first hour of time during my testing was very crunch with the Bluetooth connection. I could not have my phone in my pocket without the sound began to stutter and disappear.
I think, however, that they just had to 'warm up', because it was the first use. After the first hour of hassle, works the sound suddenly well and flawlessly.
How the envisioned Apple that you had to charge your devices in the future. But as you know, AirPower scrapped a few weeks ago. However, you can still charge the AirPods 2 wi-fi, but then it becomes a ladeplade from the competition. Photo: Marcio Jose Sanchez/Ritzau Scanpix
I think that the new wireless charging is very smart. Thus, it is very easy just to put the case for charging on a opladningsplade.
I do not believe, however, that it is a feature I will use much, as it is just so easy and charge significantly faster if you poke the socket in the case.
When the version with wireless charging at the same time, costs across the 1749 dollars, I would say that it is a little much for a pair of in-ear headphones. Fortunately, you can choose the AirPods 2 without the wireless pouch, causing the price to 1379 dollars.
Hard to find
Should you be inspired by this review to go on the hunt for AirPods 2 in the shops, you must expect a long and probably fruitless hunting. At Apple and in the shops there are up to four weeks of waiting for the version with wireless charging.
As the old 'wire-use', it has been really cool to try the Apple AirPods 2. The sound, designed and byggekvaliteten is at a very high level.
The high price and the problems with keeping the audio connection in the beginning of the test costs, however, one of the stars.
But overall, it is my judgment, therefore, that the AirPods 2 - completely as its predecessor - works surprisingly well and gets my warm recommendation.
