According to him, these AirPods look quite similar to that of the first generation one. The design and the sound quality remained the same as that of the first-generation AirPods. According to him, one of the most notable differences for the second-generation Airpods is that the charging case can now be changed easily on a wireless pad, unlike the first-generation AirPods.
