A guide to choosing the Apple AirPods for you
Apple headphones are known for a high-quality audio experience. From the original earbuds to the latest generation of the AirPods Pro (2nd generation), they all deliver a lasting battery life, beamforming microphones, and personalized spatial audio. But how do you know which AirPods are the best fit for you? Read on to get a better sense of the available features.
Apple released the first generation AirPods in December 2016. Driven by the custom Apple W1 chip, AirPods used optical sensors and a motion accelerometer to detect when they’re in your ears. Whether you’re using both AirPods or just one, the W1 chip automatically routed the audio and engaged the microphone. And when you’re on a call or talking to Siri, an additional accelerometer works with beamforming microphones to filter out background noise and focus on the sound of your voice. Because the ultralow-power W1 chip managed battery life so well, AirPods delivered an incredible 5 hours of listening time on one charge.1 And they’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that held multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time.1 And just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time.1
Released in March 2019, AirPods (2nd generation) delivers the wireless headphone experience, reimagined. With a simple one-tap setup, AirPods are automatically on and always connected. Los AirPods detectan cuando los tienes puestos en tus oídos y se ponen en pausa cuando te los quitas. Use Siri to adjust the volume, change the song, make a call or even get directions. Puedes usar uno o ambos AirPods y puedes reproducir o cambiar con dos toques mientras escuchas música o podcasts.
The 2nd generation still delivers the same battery life as the first, but got a chip upgrade in the form of the Apple H1 headphone chip. The H1 chip automatically routes the audio and engages the microphone. Y cuando estás en una llamada o hablando con Siri, un acelerómetro adicional de detección de voz, que funciona con dos micrófonos con tecnología de formación de haces (beamforming), filtra el ruido externo para concentrarse en el sonido de tu voz.
AirPods went Pro in October 2019. AirPods Pro features Active Noise Cancellation for immersive sound. Modo de ruido ambiente para oír el mundo que te rodea. They're sweat and water resistant2 and have a customizable fit for all-day comfort.

With Siri access, effortless setup, in-ear detection, and automatic switching, AirPods Pro takes listening to the next level. And, you can also easily share audio between two sets of AirPods on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple TV.

AirPods Max have up to 20 hours of listening, movie watching, or talk time with Active Noise Cancellation and spatial audio enabled, and you can store in ultra low-power mode with the slim Smart Case.1
In October 2021, AirPods (3rd generation) provided an upgrade for the original Apple earbuds. This upgrade adds Personalized Spatial Audio that places sound all around you,2 as well as longer battery life for up to 30 hours of listening time.1 It's sweat and water-resistant and delivers an experience that's simply magical.³

Now with multiple ear tips (XS, S, M, L) for an improved fit and up to 6 hours of listening time, and up to 30 hours with the charging case.1

What are the best AirPods for me?
What AirPods are the best fit for your life ultimately depends on what you need. If you are always on the go and want to block out background noise, AirPods Max would be a great fit, as both have Adaptive Transparency and Active Noise Canceling. But if you have a heavy workout, a more sweat and water resistant design like the AirPods (3rd generation) would fit the bill. And if you want both? Go pro with the AirPods Pro.
