As we said in our review, "no rival comes close to matching the AirPods from a technical point of view. There was so much right with the first version, that simply doing the same again is enough to beat many rivals. In our experience, the connection is essentially flawless with no dropout, either between phone and headphones or the two buds."
"Initial pairing and switching connections is effortless; the case charges the earphones quickly; battery life is excellent (five hours of listening with around another 19 available via the charging case); and they’re almost impossibly small and light."
