This to me isn’t worth my money to upgrade. In my eyes this is laziness.

They are increasing the price to premium headphones but have no premium features, the actual airpods 2 will be 300 at this rate Rip

Going back and re-examining them, there is absolutely NO new features in the AirPods at all! The wireless charging and the extra life features only apply to the charging case, so there is NO reason for anyone to upgrade. Releasing them as a ‘new upgrade’ is a spurious, misleading claim. Buy the charging case if you want, but at $79 a pop, that’s a lot to pay for a minor convenience. Otherwise, don’t ask me to ‘upgrade’ to the EXACT SAME device. Again, I suspect Apple (under Cook) is once more playing marketing games rather than focusing on better design. I suspect, they’ll re-release the ‘all new’ all-new AirPods in a couple of months, after suckering everyone into purchasing the case (or the full product), and getting little for it. Even IF you want the new wireless charging, you’d best wait to purchase them both when they ACTUALLY release the NEW AirPods.

I’ll admit, I was excited by the supposed color variation too. Maybe they’ll announce/release it a little later?

Same design ...😞

What design were you expecting them to use? Simply saying “Nothing new” doesn’t mean much, as the current design works MUCH better than any competing model, despite the other venders continually harping on its apparent flaws. Obviously the design, like the original iPhone, iPad or Mac’s, offers something valuable for users who continue clamoring for more. My issue isn’t with the shape, or the fact they fit naturally, remain in place, while allowing me to hear what’s going on around me, instead that the modifications included in the upgrade just don’t warrant purchasing the SAME essential product which I already possess. That’s a value question, rather than a design or engineering issue. Likewise, claiming you won’t purchase ANY product until they’ve worked out all the bugs and will NEVER update implies you’ve also never purchased a book, used a pen, or keep any paper products.

Does anyone want to buy the first gen iPhone now? Of course not, how about the first gen iPad? Or the first gen Apple Watch? What about the second gen of those devices? Still no? Well in that case I’ll wait till it’s improved till there’s no need to upgrade it anymore then I’ll purchase it. Thanks but no thanks
