Hi,

Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com site. This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.
I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019 so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article are astounding. Here is the link to the article:

Thanks, Sieghard.

To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into 2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.

I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be more expensive, but by how much is the question.

Best, Keith

Well hopefully they are better than the first gen versions I have.
They fall out of my ears a lot of the time and I hate that there is no
way to change the volume from the headphones. Last but not least
better sound would be nice if possible.

I am surprised at your statement of better sound since almost all reviews I read praise how good they sound and having briefly tried them at an Apple Store I tend to agree that for how tiny they are they do sound very good to me. I also have no issues with the Earpods which are essentially the same size and shape as the Airpods, falling out, but of course everybody's ears are different. I whole-heartedly agree about the lack of volume control, for a Bluetooth headset of such high price not to offer independent volume controls is laughable and it alone is primarily the reason why I have not yet bought a pair.

Hi Keith,

It says in the article as follows:

Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an even more improved model of AirPods.

What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close. As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.

Regards,
Sieghard

I have the Air Pods and regret having purchased them. They fit poorly and even though listening audio is great, outgoing audio, such as on calls or chat groups, etc. is very poor. I am constantly being told how crappy I sound, and I do have them set properly in my ears. I love Apple, but their quest to be on the cutting edge results in a klunker now and then.

Hi all.
I do love my airpods... the only annoying and rediculous thing is the batery life! I can't get more than 2 hours out of mine... that is on a full charge. That has always been the case. Sure, it doesn't take long to charge... but come on!!! two hours? Really?

As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.

Thanks, Sieghard.
To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into 2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.
I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be more expensive, but by how much is the question.

Hi,
Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com site. This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.

Hi Keith,

It says in the article as follows:

Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an even more improved model of AirPods.

What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold.

I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019 so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then regret a few month later.

I am on my second pair 
 lost my first ones a couple of months ago, and finally gave up on the new ones being released anytime soon, so replaced them earlier this week.



I can get around 4 hours out of them, listing to audio
making the occasional phone call and such. Remember, the higher the volume, the faster they will die. If memory serves me correctly the 5 hours is listing to audio .. at 50%. So, adding in phone calls and bumping the volume will have a direct impact on this.



As was suggested I would talk to either someone at the Apple Store, or call their support line. You should be getting way more than 2 hours ..

All this feedback really is not inspiring.

I’m mildly intrigued by airpods, but yeah 
 I think I’ll stick with my Plantronics 5200 and Trekz Air combo until there are drastic improvements.

Hi all.

I do love my airpods... the only annoying and rediculous thing is the batery life! I can't get more than 2 hours out of mine... that is on a full charge. That has always been the case. Sure, it doesn't take long to charge... but come on!!! two hours? Really?

Hi Keith,



It says in the article as follows:



Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an even more improved model of AirPods.



What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close. As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.



Regards,

Sieghard

Thanks, Sieghard.



To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into 2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.



I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be more expensive, but by how much is the question.

Hi,



Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com <http://iPhoneInCanada.com> site. This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.

I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019 so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article are astounding. Here is the link to the article:

Honestly they are the best all around buds for what I do .. I’ve had all sorts of BT ones over the years, and hands down these are the best .. that’s why I decided not to wait any longer .. but, sound and features are such a subjective thing, what one loves .. someone else might hate .. If you haven’t tried them, I’d suggest going to an Apple Store and giving them a try

All this feedback really is not inspiring.

I’m mildly intrigued by airpods, but yeah 
 I think I’ll stick with my Plantronics 5200 and Trekz Air combo until there are drastic improvements.

I am on my second pair 
 lost my first ones a couple of months ago, and finally gave up on the new ones being released anytime soon, so replaced them earlier this week.



I can get around 4 hours out of them, listing to audio
making the occasional phone call and such. Remember, the higher the volume, the faster they will die. If memory serves me correctly the 5 hours is listing to audio .. at 50%. So, adding in phone calls and bumping the volume will have a direct impact on this.



As was suggested I would talk to either someone at the Apple Store, or call their support line. You should be getting way more than 2 hours ..

Hi all.

I do love my airpods... the only annoying and rediculous thing is the batery life! I can't get more than 2 hours out of mine... that is on a full charge. That has always been the case. Sure, it doesn't take long to charge... but come on!!! two hours? Really?

Hi Keith,



It says in the article as follows:



Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an even more improved model of AirPods.



What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close. As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.



Regards,

Sieghard

Thanks, Sieghard.



To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into 2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.



I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be more expensive, but by how much is the question.



Best, Keith

Hi,



Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com <http://iPhoneInCanada.com> site. This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.

I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019 so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article are astounding. Here is the link to the article:



Google, Amazon Likely Working on AirPods Competitor: Ming-Chi Kuo <https://www.iphoneincanada.ca/news/airpods-kuo/>



Regards,

Sieghard

Hi all.

I do love my airpods... the only annoying and rediculous thing is the batery life! I can't get more than 2 hours out of mine... that is on a full charge. That has always been the case. Sure, it doesn't take long to charge... but come on!!! two hours? Really?

Hi Keith,



It says in the article as follows:



Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an even more improved model of AirPods.



What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close. As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.



Regards,

Sieghard

Thanks, Sieghard.



To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into 2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.



I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be more expensive, but by how much is the question.



Best, Keith

Hi,



Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com <http://iPhoneInCanada.com> site. This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.

I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019 so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article are astounding. Here is the link to the article:

I have done this and as I said, the two main issues are lack of volume control and one more thing I forgot earlier, they really should have a tiny hole or loop molded into the plastic where you could use a thin but strong line/string to attach the two Airpods. This way it would be much harder to loose them and they could hang around your neck when not in use.

Honestly they are the best all around buds for what I do .. I’ve had all sorts of BT ones over the years, and hands down these are the best .. that’s why I decided not to wait any longer .. but, sound and features are such a subjective thing, what one loves .. someone else might hate .. If you haven’t tried them, I’d suggest going to an Apple Store and giving them a try

All this feedback really is not inspiring.

I am on my second pair 
 lost my first ones a couple of months ago, and finally gave up on the new ones being released anytime soon, so replaced them earlier this week.

I can get around 4 hours out of them, listing to audio
making the occasional phone call and such. Remember, the higher the volume, the faster they will die. If memory serves me correctly the 5 hours is listing to audio .. at 50%. So, adding in phone calls and bumping the volume will have a direct impact on this.

As was suggested I would talk to either someone at the Apple Store, or call their support line. You should be getting way more than 2 hours ..

Yeah, well I’m such an idiot I lost the entire thing .. case and pods. Best I can figure is they popped out of my jeans somewhere. I can still remember taking them out of my ears, putting them in my pocket grabbing my dog and going for a walk
and they just vanished. Find my iphone confirms the last location as my apartment. Which I have torn apart multiple times
 I’d like to see the next edition include a way to find the case
playing a sound on it or something.

I have done this and as I said, the two main issues are lack of volume control and one more thing I forgot earlier, they really should have a tiny hole or loop molded into the plastic where you could use a thin but strong line/string to attach the two Airpods. This way it would be much harder to loose them and they could hang around your neck when not in use.

Honestly they are the best all around buds for what I do .. I’ve had all sorts of BT ones over the years, and hands down these are the best .. that’s why I decided not to wait any longer .. but, sound and features are such a subjective thing, what one loves .. someone else might hate .. If you haven’t tried them, I’d suggest going to an Apple Store and giving them a try

All this feedback really is not inspiring.

I’m mildly intrigued by airpods, but yeah 
 I think I’ll stick with my Plantronics 5200 and Trekz Air combo until there are drastic improvements.

I am on my second pair 
 lost my first ones a couple of months ago, and finally gave up on the new ones being released anytime soon, so replaced them earlier this week.



I can get around 4 hours out of them, listing to audio
making the occasional phone call and such. Remember, the higher the volume, the faster they will die. If memory serves me correctly the 5 hours is listing to audio .. at 50%. So, adding in phone calls and bumping the volume will have a direct impact on this.



As was suggested I would talk to either someone at the Apple Store, or call their support line. You should be getting way more than 2 hours ..

Have you gone to an Apple Store regarding this? It seems most people report that the promised 5 hours pretty accurate so I'd complain about it.

Hi all.

I do love my airpods... the only annoying and rediculous thing is the batery life! I can't get more than 2 hours out of mine... that is on a full charge. That has always been the case. Sure, it doesn't take long to charge... but come on!!! two hours? Really?

I have the Air Pods and regret having purchased them. They fit poorly and even though listening audio is great, outgoing audio, such as on calls or chat groups, etc. is very poor. I am constantly being told how crappy I sound, and I do have them set properly in my ears. I love Apple, but their quest to be on the cutting edge results in a klunker now and then.

Hi Keith,



It says in the article as follows:



Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an even more improved model of AirPods.



What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close. As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.



Regards,

Sieghard

Thanks, Sieghard.



To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into 2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.



I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be more expensive, but by how much is the question.



Best, Keith

Hi,



Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com <http://iPhoneInCanada.com> site. This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.

I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019 so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article are astounding. Here is the link to the article:



Google, Amazon Likely Working on AirPods Competitor: Ming-Chi Kuo <https://www.iphoneincanada.ca/news/airpods-kuo/>

I have, but until they offer me the same controls as Earpods it's a no go for me, they have to offer volume control.

Honestly they are the best all around buds for what I do .. I’ve had all sorts of BT ones over the years, and hands down these are the best .. that’s why I decided not to wait any longer .. but, sound and features are such a subjective thing, what one loves .. someone else might hate .. If you haven’t tried them, I’d suggest going to an Apple Store and giving them a try

All this feedback really is not inspiring.
I’m mildly intrigued by airpods, but yeah 
 I think I’ll stick with my Plantronics 5200 and Trekz Air combo until there are drastic improvements.

I am on my second pair 
 lost my first ones a couple of months ago, and finally gave up on the new ones being released anytime soon, so replaced them earlier this week.

I can get around 4 hours out of them, listing to audio
making the occasional phone call and such. Remember, the higher the volume, the faster they will die. If memory serves me correctly the 5 hours is listing to audio .. at 50%. So, adding in phone calls and bumping the volume will have a direct impact on this.

As was suggested I would talk to either someone at the Apple Store, or call their support line. You should be getting way more than 2 hours ..

Hi all.
I do love my airpods... the only annoying and rediculous thing is the batery life! I can't get more than 2 hours out of mine... that is on a full charge. That has always been the case. Sure, it doesn't take long to charge... but come on!!! two hours? Really?

Hi Keith,

It says in the article as follows:

Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an even more improved model of AirPods.

What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close. As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.

Regards,
Sieghard

Thanks, Sieghard.

To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into 2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.

I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be more expensive, but by how much is the question.

Best, Keith

Hi,

Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com<http://iPhoneInCanada.com> site. This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.
I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019 so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article are astounding. Here is the link to the article:

Google, Amazon Likely Working on AirPods Competitor: Ming-Chi Kuo<https://www.iphoneincanada.ca/news/airpods-kuo/>

Sieghard

I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019 so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article are astounding. Here is the link to the article:

That is a work-around but not the solution I want. What would you say if Apple decided not to put volume buttons on the phone any more because they tell you to just ask SIRI to change the volume. Also, what if you don't have an active internet connection then using SIRI to lower the volume is not an option or what I my iPhone is sitting on the charge pad but I want to use my Airpods while I am cleaning or cooking in the kitchen? As I said, I think the Airpods are great, I tried them and really like them, but I'll wait until they have volume control functionality and I can guaranty that the will get it. Way too many people are asking for this.

All you have to do is double tap and tell Siri to lower or increase the volume .. or go to a certain volume level. Not always discrete
but works

Honestly they are the best all around buds for what I do .. I’ve had all sorts of BT ones over the years, and hands down these are the best .. that’s why I decided not to wait any longer .. but, sound and features are such a subjective thing, what one loves .. someone else might hate .. If you haven’t tried them, I’d suggest going to an Apple Store and giving them a try

All this feedback really is not inspiring.
I’m mildly intrigued by airpods, but yeah 
 I think I’ll stick with my Plantronics 5200 and Trekz Air combo until there are drastic improvements.

I am on my second pair 
 lost my first ones a couple of months ago, and finally gave up on the new ones being released anytime soon, so replaced them earlier this week.

I can get around 4 hours out of them, listing to audio
making the occasional phone call and such. Remember, the higher the volume, the faster they will die. If memory serves me correctly the 5 hours is listing to audio .. at 50%. So, adding in phone calls and bumping the volume will have a direct impact on this.

As was suggested I would talk to either someone at the Apple Store, or call their support line. You should be getting way more than 2 hours ..

Have you gone to an Apple Store regarding this? It seems most people report that the promised 5 hours pretty accurate so I'd complain about it.

Hi all.
I do love my airpods... the only annoying and rediculous thing is the batery life! I can't get more than 2 hours out of mine... that is on a full charge. That has always been the case. Sure, it doesn't take long to charge... but come on!!! two hours? Really?

I have the Air Pods and regret having purchased them. They fit poorly and even though listening audio is great, outgoing audio, such as on calls or chat groups, etc. is very poor.

Hi Keith,

It says in the article as follows:

Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an even more improved model of AirPods.

What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close. As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.

Regards,
Sieghard

Thanks, Sieghard.

To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into 2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.

I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be more expensive, but by how much is the question.

Best, Keith

Hi,

Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com<http://iPhoneInCanada.com> site. This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.
I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019 so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article are astounding. Here is the link to the article:

Google, Amazon Likely Working on AirPods Competitor: Ming-Chi Kuo<https://www.iphoneincanada.ca/news/airpods-kuo/>

Sieghard

They advertise 4 to 5 hours, but there are many BT headsets that will give you more.

Hi all.
I do love my airpods... the only annoying and rediculous thing is the batery life! I can't get more than 2 hours out of mine... that is on a full charge. That has always been the case. Sure, it doesn't take long to charge... but come on!!! two hours? Really?

Hi Keith,



It says in the article as follows:



Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an even more improved model of AirPods.



What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close. As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.



Regards,

Sieghard

Thanks, Sieghard.



To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into 2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.



I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be more expensive, but by how much is the question.



Best, Keith

Hi,



Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com site. This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.

I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019 so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article are astounding. Here is the link to the article:



Google, Amazon Likely Working on AirPods Competitor: Ming-Chi Kuo

Sure, but it's all in what you want. I have several LG versions that I have had over the years .. they do well, but I have also broken the wires on several of them ..

In my opinion ... these are well worth the $$$ for what they do. Are there better sounding, sure .. but these are so convenient ... the one thing I hope future versions have is the ability to locate the case via sound. Cause it's easy to misplace that ...LOL... and of course longer battery life . and I'm sure that is in the works ...

I have the Air Pods and regret having purchased them. They fit
poorly and even though listening audio is great, outgoing audio, such
as on calls or chat groups, etc. is very poor. I am constantly being
told how crappy I sound, and I do have them set properly in my ears. I
love Apple, but their quest to be on the cutting edge results in a klunker now and then.

Hi Keith,

of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded Bluetooth
in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an even more
improved model of AirPods.
What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it
will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to
think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I
assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay roughly
the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can probably pick
up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while after a new one
comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I also think that if
we start to see the current Airpods on sale at places like Best Buy,
Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close. As I said, I'm in no
particular hurry, I've gotten along this long without I can manage for
another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year and a half. I am not a huge
fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be a good update before Apple
gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.

Thanks, Sieghard.
To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into
2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly
updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.
I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price

Sure, but it's all in what you want. I have several LG versions that I have had over the years .. they do well, but I have also broken the wires on several of them ..
In my opinion ... these are well worth the $$$ for what they do. Are there better sounding, sure .. but these are so convenient ... the one thing I hope future versions have is the ability to locate the case via sound. Cause it's easy to misplace that ...LOL... and of course longer battery life . and I'm sure that is in the works ...

The best way to think of them is to cut off the wires from the standard Apple ear pods that come with the phones. They are pretty much that design ...they do extend a little longer ...

I have the Air Pods and regret having purchased them. They fit
poorly and even though listening audio is great, outgoing audio,
such as on calls or chat groups, etc. is very poor. I am constantly
being told how crappy I sound, and I do have them set properly in my ears.
I love Apple, but their quest to be on the cutting edge results in a
klunker now and then.

Hi Keith,
Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new
version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded
Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an
even more improved model of AirPods.
What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether
it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem
to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess.
I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay
roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can
probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while
after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I
also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at
places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close.
As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this long
without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year
and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to
be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally
like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.

Sieghard

Thanks, Sieghard.
To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into
2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly
updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.
I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about
price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be
more expensive, but by how much is the question.

Hi,
Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com site.
This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple
analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.
I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple
Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a
newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up
with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019
so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the
price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and
then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article
are astounding. Here is the link to the
Google, Amazon Likely Working on AirPods Competitor: Ming-Chi Kuo

Come on now. Been there done that. Checpoint Charlie is such a tourist trap now. We've got a couple of pieces of the wall around here somewhere. At least that's what the souvenir shop said... More likely, it's just some mass produced chunk of concrete with some distressed spray paint on it, but whatever. I choose to believe it's part of the wall.
Funny though, for whatever reason, There's a section of the wall installed out here in Southern California not 5 miles from my house. Some sort of Ronald Reagan memorial in the middle of nowhere. I tell my wife that we should go and take a picture of her standing in front of it and send it to my in-laws and say sorry, was in the neighborhood, but couldn't drop by. Maybe next time. Tschüss!!

Haha!! Wow... Don't I feel like a cheapskate now. Got my wife a book containing a collection of posters and other propaganda from the GDR. Not … quite the same, but whatever. Don’t' want to spoil her either.

Sure, but it's all in what you want. I have several LG versions that I have had over the years .. they do well, but I have also broken the wires on several of them ..
In my opinion ... these are well worth the $$$ for what they do. Are there better sounding, sure .. but these are so convenient ... the one thing I hope future versions have is the ability to locate the case via sound. Cause it's easy to misplace that ...LOL... and of course longer battery life . and I'm sure that is in the works ...

Hi all.
I do love my airpods... the only annoying and rediculous thing is
the batery life! I can't get more than 2 hours out of mine... that is
on a full charge. That has always been the case. Sure, it doesn't
take long to charge... but come on!!! two hours? Really?

I have the Air Pods and regret having purchased them. They fit
poorly and even though listening audio is great, outgoing audio, such
as on calls or chat groups, etc. is very poor. I am constantly being
told how crappy I sound, and I do have them set properly in my ears.
I love Apple, but their quest to be on the cutting edge results in a klunker now and then.

Hi Keith,
Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new version
of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded
Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an
even more improved model of AirPods.
What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it
will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to
think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I
assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay
roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can
probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while
after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I
also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at
places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close.
As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this long
without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year
and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be
a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.
Regards,
Sieghard

Thanks, Sieghard.
To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into
2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly
updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.
I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price
based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be more
expensive, but by how much is the question.

Hi,
Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com site.
This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple
analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.
I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple
Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a
newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up
with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019
so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price
of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then
regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article are
astounding. Here is the link to the
Google, Amazon Likely Working on AirPods Competitor: Ming-Chi Kuo

I have the Air Pods and regret having purchased them. They fit
poorly and even though listening audio is great, outgoing audio, such
as on calls or chat groups, etc. is very poor. I am constantly being
told how crappy I sound, and I do have them set properly in my ears. I
love Apple, but their quest to be on the cutting edge results in a
klunker now and then.

Hi Keith,
Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new version
of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded Bluetooth
in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an even more
improved model of AirPods.
What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether it
will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem to
think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess. I
assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay roughly
the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can probably pick
up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while after a new one
comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I also think that if
we start to see the current Airpods on sale at places like Best Buy,
Target etc. then maybe a new one will be close. As I said, I'm in no
particular hurry, I've gotten along this long without I can manage for
another 6 or 8 months or a year or a year and a half. I am not a huge
fan of Bluetooth so it really needs to be a good update before Apple
gets my money for those. I totally like the idea of the Airpods but I
don't yet like the implementation/design.

Sieghard

Thanks, Sieghard.
To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into
2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly
updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.
I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about price
based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be more
expensive, but by how much is the question.

Hi,
Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com site.
This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple
analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.
I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple
Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a
newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up
with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019 so
maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the price of
these little guys it is not something you want to buy and then regret
a few month later. The sales predictions in that article are
astounding. Here is the link to the
Google, Amazon Likely Working on AirPods Competitor: Ming-Chi Kuo

Well, I had them for just under 2 years before I lost the entire case and Pods ..

When they aren't in the case, you can play a tone and find them .. that has saved me a bunch of times .. I hope the next version have a similar feature to find the case ..cause it's easy to misplace them .. Now I have certain places I put them .. and nowhere else...so, I only have 3 places to look .

My problem was that because of the aweful battery life, the pods died in the night, so I couldn't play a tone to find them in the morning. That's when I decided to just give them to a family member, who now has an Android phone, knock on wood, so I'll probably look at sending them back to Apple.

also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at
places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be
close. As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this
long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a
year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs

Thanks, Sieghard.
To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into
2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly
updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.
I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about
price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be
more expensive, but by how much is the question.

Hi,
Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com site.
This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple
analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.
I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple
Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a
newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up
with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019
so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the
price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and
then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article
are astounding. Here is the link to the
Google, Amazon Likely Working on AirPods Competitor: Ming-Chi Kuo

You guys aren't leaving the airpods out of its case are you? because
when not in use, they're supposed to stay in the case. if you leave them
lying around, then they'll definitely die. I have never had any battery
issue. just use them as normal, whenever you need a break just pop them
back in the case for as long as that takes, and put them back in your
ears when done. simple as that.
Post by Devin Prater
My problem was that because of the aweful battery life, the pods died in the night, so I couldn't play a tone to find them in the morning. That's when I decided to just give them to a family member, who now has an Android phone, knock on wood, so I'll probably look at sending them back to Apple.

Well, I had them for just under 2 years before I lost the entire case and Pods ..
When they aren't in the case, you can play a tone and find them .. that has saved me a bunch of times .. I hope the next version have a similar feature to find the case ..cause it's easy to misplace them .. Now I have certain places I put them .. and nowhere else...so, I only have 3 places to look .

Hi Keith,
Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new
version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded
Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an
even more improved model of AirPods.
What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether
it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem
to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess.
I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay
roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can
probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while
after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I
also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at
places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be
close. As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this
long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a
year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs
to be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally
like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the implementation/design.

They can be used on devices other than Apple. When in the case, you can use
the pairing button on the back of the case to pair them to any bluetooth
source device, including Android phones.

results in a klunker now and then.

Subject: RE: New Apple Airpod are coming as well as Amazon and google competitors
Hi Keith,
Kuo earlier this year predicted Apple will release a new
version of the AirPods with “wireless charging support” and upgraded
Bluetooth in the first quarter of 2019. Kuo says 2020 will see an
even more improved model of AirPods.
What exactly the possible 2019 version will bring and whether
it will come out in the first 3 or 4 months of the year as some seem
to think or not until the September iPhone event is anybody's guess.
I assume that the price for any new version of Airpods will stay
roughly the same at around $160 US and $220 Canadian and one can
probably pick up the earlier model for a bit of a deal for a while
after a new one comes out and until all the older ones are sold. I
also think that if we start to see the current Airpods on sale at
places like Best Buy, Target etc. then maybe a new one will be
close. As I said, I'm in no particular hurry, I've gotten along this
long without I can manage for another 6 or 8 months or a year or a
year and a half. I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth so it really needs
to be a good update before Apple gets my money for those. I totally
like the idea of the Airpods but I don't yet like the
implementation/design.
Regards,
Sieghard

Thanks, Sieghard.
To my reading, it sounds like you may need to wait until into
2020 before the upgraded version of Air Pods is released. Mostly
updated Bluetooth and possibly wireless charing in 2019.
I didn’t see any mention of pricing. Was you comment about
price based on current price? I’m guessing newer AirPods will be
more expensive, but by how much is the question.
Best, Keith

Hi,
Just came across this article on the iPhoneInCanada.com site.
This has been reported on Mac Rumors by Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple
analyst from TF Securities whose "rumors" come true more often than not.
I am glad I have held off so far because even if I buy Apple
Airpods it sounds like waiting a bit longer may reward you with a
newer, more advanced model. Whatever Amazon and Google may come up
with sounds like won't come to market until the second half of 2019
so maybe I'll even wait until then to see, after all, given the
price of these little guys it is not something you want to buy and
then regret a few month later. The sales predictions in that article
are astounding. Here is the link to the
Google, Amazon Likely Working on AirPods Competitor: Ming-Chi Kuo

I kept losing my Airpods. So, I went out and got a pair of $50 Anchor Soundbuds Life, and besides not losing them, they sound amazing! I mean, the bass is something I can feel, without distorting the audio.

Sure, but it's all in what you want. I have several LG versions that I have had over the years .. they do well, but I have also broken the wires on several of them ..
In my opinion ... these are well worth the $$$ for what they do. Are there better sounding, sure .. but these are so convenient ... the one thing I hope future versions have is the ability to locate the case via sound. Cause it's easy to misplace that ...LOL... and of course longer battery life . and I'm sure that is in the works ...

Hi all.
I do love my airpods... the only annoying and rediculous thing is
the batery life! I can't get more than 2 hours out of mine... that is
on a full charge. That has always been the case. Sure, it doesn't take
long to charge... but come on!!! two hours? Really?
