In terms of protection, the new product is IPX4 compliant, so the earbuds and charging case are sweat- and water-resistant. The autonomy of the device is 6 hours, and together with the case - 30 hours. There is also the possibility of fast charging: an extra hour of listening will be provided in five minutes.

Among other features of the new AirPods, it is worth highlighting the support for magnetic charging of the MagSafe case and the presence of a skin touch sensor that determines the position of the headphones in the user's ear or, for example, on the table. When you remove the headset from your ear, playback stops automatically.

Headphones are set up in one touch, after which the device is connected to all Apple gadgets. The model also has an audio sharing option that allows you to stream audio simultaneously to two pairs of headphones.

The recommended retail price for the new product is $179. The headset is available for pre-order and will hit stores on October 26th. At the same time, Apple cut the price tag for the previous generation AirPods to $129.
