Second Generation Apple AirPods Price For Malaysia Starts At RM 699

Second Generation Apple AirPods Price For Malaysia Starts At RM 699

The other big highlight is hands-free "Hey Siri" support.

The 2 Gen Apple AirPods use the company's new Apple H1 (Hearable 1?) SoC that is said to be considerably faster and more energy-efficient than its predecessor, the Apple W1. Although it would have been nice to get longer listening time, more than 24 hours of listening time in buds in such compact earbuds and case is still far more than competing products. The new version, which will still cost $159 and be available in stores next week, looks the same as the prior model.

Apple on Wednesday introduced its 2 Generation AirPods. These are pretty similar specifications to the first set of AirPods, but we have no clues about how fast wireless charging the case will go. No problems, Apple will sell you the wireless charging case separate.

After months of hoping and wishing, Apple has today officially announced updated AirPods, along with the Wireless Charging Case which is surely an indication that AirPower is around the corner too.

Thanks to the H1 chip, the new Apple AirPods offer "Hey Siri" control, allowing users to make a phone call, play music, change the volume and ask for directions using their voice. Apple quickly ran out of stock with the original truly wireless headphones, leaving third-party options like wireless carriers to carry the burden of offering stock on a semi-regular basis.

Should you upgrade from the old AirPods to the new Airpods? With AirPods 2019 you still get 5 hours of listening time just like before.

Are you excited for the second-gen AirPods and its wireless charging capability? Adding a pair of new AirPods to that, the total comes to $199.

Apple also notes that the second-generation AirPods feature a 30% decrease in latency when playing iOS games - a test the company performed with Tomb of the Mask and Doodle Jump, according to the AirPods' product page.
