What are AirPods?
AirPods are smart, fully wireless headphones that come with a smart charging case. To use Apple AirPods, you first need to connect them to your smart device via Bluetooth.

Original AirPods come from the well-known brand Apple. Since breaking onto the scene, the model has become extremely popular, so other manufacturers have also created versions with similar functions. Given that fact, we invite you to read more about cost-effective AirPod options in our short guide. Here you can also find all the information you need about Apple headphones.
Which AirPods are Best to Buy?
Apple has launched three generations of in-ear and one generation of over-ear AirPods so far. The Apple earbuds look the same, and maybe you wonder about the differences? Read on, and we’ll help you choose the right in-ear model, or even convince you that the new over-ear model is perfect for you!

Apple AirPods Max with the smart case
If looking closely at the first and the second generation's characteristics, the AirPods second generation comes with an H1 processor instead of the W1 from the 2016 model. So what do you get with the new, improved processor?
Switching between active units happens twice as fast
The connection during calls is 1.5 times faster
"Hey Siri" voice activation
30% less audio delay during phone calls or listening to music and podcasts
50% better talk and listening time
Given this, and the small price difference between the two generations, we recommend the newer model.
What about the two variants of Airpods 2, you ask?
If you’re following the trends and wireless charging is your choice, we recommend this variant, which comes with a wireless charging case in the package.
Charging is also possible via Lightning cable. For the older model, you can also purchase the case separately.
Choosing between AirPods 2 and Pro?
Apple released the Pro model in October 2019. Compared to the other Apple earphones models, AirPods Pro delivers active noise-cancellation (reduces the background noise), noise-isolating design, water resistance, transparency mode (allows the outside sound in), 5-hour battery life, and wireless charging.
These fantastic improvements come at a price of approximately £100 more than the price for earlier models. So, if you are an in-ear headphones lover willing to pay more for good design and improved features, a hands-free Pro model is a product for you!
What is the secret behind AirPods Max?
As you know, in December 2020, Apple has released its first wireless over-ear headset ever. The Max model comes in five colours, and some of their most important features are:
Active noise cancellation (reduces the background noise),
Adaptive EQ (shapes low and mid music frequencies to your ear),
Three outward-facing microphones (for detection of external sounds and noise),
Requires iOS 14 (iOS on your iPhone or iPad should be iOS 14 or later).
When comparing this model with earlier double-tap Apple headphones, the most obvious difference is the design itself. But when it comes to other features, the five-minute Lightning charge will provide 1.5 hours of music, whilst a fully charged battery can last up to 20 hours.
Thanks to two Apple H1 chips, AirPods Max deliver a fantastic quality of sound. The model is equipped with memory foam interchangeable ear cushions. It also includes Digital Crown, which allows you to adjust the volume, use Siri or control audio playback. Also, the headband balances and distributes pressure providing a perfect user experience.
So, if you are a fan of headsets, investing in an AirPods Max can be a bit pricey, but it is the smart solution!
MTP tip: Invest in a protective case that will keep your headphone case safe and scratch-free for an extended period. You can choose from a variety of materials and colours. Also think about the various charging stations and straps you could use, as well as our other accessories for AirPods.
