Faster, better, longer – with the new H1 chip
The largest difference to the first generation Airpods is probably the new H1 chip. The first generation features a chip called W1. The new chip is said to ensure faster connection when switching between devices and answered calls. On top of this, as the manufacturer claims, the new chip offers up to 30% less latency – a delight when gaming and watching videos. Other important innovations of the 2nd generation are improved battery life, wireless charging and hands-free Siri voice assistant access. More in the specs below.
The key innovations and specs
• Wireless charging case and Qi compatibility • The wireless case can also be charged with a «regular» lightning cable • 5 hours music playtime or 3 hours of talk time (Airpods) • 24 hours battery life (case) • Hand-free activation of Siri – just say «Hey Siri»
