The Apple AirPods (2019) are an upgraded version of the original 2016 AirPods, and while they're starting to get on a bit in age, they're still a popular choice for those looking for true wireless earbuds.

Compared to the older model, the visual design remains the same,  but inside, you get a faster H1 processor chip, 50% more talk time, and hands-free Siri interactions. 

Battery life comes in at five hours from the earbuds themselves, while the charging case provides a further 20 hours of battery life. They have a lively, powerful presentation, although they can sound slightly harsh when it comes to higher-frequency sounds, and they aren’t the bassiest earbuds on the market – but they're undeniably popular, and are comfortable to wear for long periods of time. 

They're also being updated all the time. A recent upgrade made the AirPods able to announce notifications with Siri, thanks to iOS 15, which builds on the earbuds' ability to announce your messages.
