Performance you’ll want to hear.
Powered by the Apple H1 headphone chip, AirPods deliver a faster and more stable wireless connection to your devices — up to 2x faster when switching between active devices,2 and a 1.5x faster connection time for phone calls.3 The H1 chip also delivers up to 30 percent lower gaming latency.4 So whether you’re playing games, listening to music, or enjoying podcasts, you’ll experience higher-quality sound.
Knows when you’re listening.
Optical sensors and motion accelerometers work together to automatically control the audio experience, engaging the microphones for phone calls and enabling AirPods to play sound as soon as they’re in your ears. You also have the freedom to wear one or both AirPods, and you can play or skip forward with a double-tap when listening to music.
Knows when you’re talking.
A speech-detecting accelerometer recognizes when you’re speaking and works with a pair of beamforming microphones to filter out external noise and focus on the sound of your voice.
