Price: $199


Design: AirPods 2 look virtually identical to the original AirPods. The design of these headphones fit most people’s ears, but there are some who complain of them falling out easily. These headphones primary use was not intended for working out, so they have been known to not react well with excess amounts of sweat or water. The control of music/phone calls comes from tapping the side of the earphone. AirPods 2 features a wireless charging case that is smaller than a pack of gum.


Power: AirPods 2 have more than 24 hours of listening time with the case and up to 5 hours on a single charge.
