Apple has unveiled its second generation of AirPods true wireless headphones. In its press release, the company notes that the device will be available with either a standard charging case and a new wireless charging case.

Buyers can also purchase the standalone wireless case for Rs 7,500. All will be available later this spring.

The new AirPods come with the H1 chip, which Apple says were developed specifically for the device. The Cupertino-based company claims that the chipset offers performance efficiencies, faster connect times, more talk time, and hands-free “Hey Siri” activation. 

“AirPods delivered a magical wireless experience and have become one of the most beloved products we’ve ever made. They connect easily with all of your devices, and provide crystal clear sound and intuitive, innovative control of your music and audio,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The world’s best wireless headphones just got even better with the new AirPods. They are powered by the new Apple-designed H1 chip which brings an extra hour of talk time, faster connections, hands-free ‘Hey Siri’ and the convenience of a new wireless battery case.”

Apple notes that the new H1 chipset allows the second generation AirPods to offer up to 50% more talk time as compared to its predecessor. Further, the new earphones are also said to connect to devices twice as fast. Talking about the charging cases, both are said to offer additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time. The wireless charging case is compatible with Qi charging  solutions.
