Whenever there is an updated version of the product, there will always be a small pinch of doubt about the credibility of the older one.
So this is a detailed review of Apple Airpods so that you can decide if taking the older version Apple Airpods will serve any better use.
Coming to its cost and age :
It was launched on December 13 of 2016. So this product is about three older as of now. With many new versions of it available in the market like the 2019’s AirPods and newer AirPods the market for the older earbuds has gradually reduced.
At the time of release, there cost $159 / £159 / AU$229 which too high as the normal wireless earbuds range from $50 up to $200. Even with talks of first Apple over-ear headphones and the rumored AirPods Pro Lite, many retailers have concerned about the stocks left with them.
So the price of this gradually declining now. So it would be a wise option to take this up for people who don’t really wanna go to tech about it and those apple users from 7 to X who have no 3.5mm headphone jack.
Apple is always unique and distinctive in their design. The biggest difference between the two is the small arm which comes down from the earbud section.
The AirPods arm is much thicker than that of EarPods to fit the device’s battery and microphone. The modern AirPods have replaceable silicon ear tips that secure the earphones firmly in your ears.
While older AirPods rely entirely on their one-size-fits-all plastic housing to keep themselves sat firmly in your ears.
Despite being the older version the sound of the AirPods is simply awesome. Just you can listen to a beat like Turbowolf’s Nine Lives and know it’s bass cutting the track without overwhelming the mid and treble notes.
Either to get relax with some Slayer or get pumped up with Enya these AirPods provide them without any doubt in it.
Opening the AirPods case next to the phone and tapping on the screen pair them will automatically connect the AirPods with the phone when placed in our ears and even disconnects automatically when they are taken off our ears. So this provides a very good and comfortable way for the users to connect.
Siri Connectivity :
Outside from the music point of view, the Siri connectivity is pretty much quick and great.
Coming to music it is needed to take the phone off our pockets to perform most of the functions as only a few were incorporated.
Battery life :
The current charging case is awesome as it gets charged first by the charging slot and later its power is enough for the AirPods to run for five hours.
This life-time is pretty much accurate as a series of tests conducted on them have proved the result.
Final Verdict :
The pros of the older version of AirPods are that the Battery life is exceptional, Sound is great and the pairing is quick and easy.
While coming to its cons that it has a One-size-fits-all design, No in-line remote and it’s Controversial looks. So considering all the factors the older version of AirPods is still an efficient one even after the release of it’s upgraded versions.
