Apple AirPods (2nd-generation)

Looking for a pair of hassle-free true wireless earbuds? The Apple AirPods 2 sprinkle a little more pixie dust over proceedings, offering a great combination of performance, reliability and convenience. Walk into an Apple Store and you'll see two options: the AirPods with a Charging Case priced, and the model with the Wireless Charging Case. 

Should you get the charging case? It really depends on your budget. You can buy the Wireless Charging Case separately, but you'll get a better deal if you buy one bundled with a pair of AirPods 2. Just place your AirPods in the case and lay it on a Qi-certified wireless charging pad (sold separately). An LED indicator on the front of the case lets you know that your AirPods are charging. (If you're away from your charging pad, you can still use the Lightning port to charge the case.)

Sadly, Apple cancelled the launch of its 'AirPower' charging pad so you'll need to buy one from a third party brand, such as Belkin or Morphie. You can check out Apple's pick of the Qi-certified wireless charging pads here. 

It's also worth nothing that the Wireless Charging Pad works with both the 1st-generation and 2nd-generation AirPods.

Apple AirPods Pro

Apple's high-end 'buds seem very impressive indeed. Their noise-cancelling tech features a 'Transparency' mode that actively allows sound in from the outside world, while the supplied silicone tips (you get three sizes) should ensure a better fit. Battery life is a claimed five hours for the earphones, with another 19 hours added by the charging case. They might be chunkier and costlier than the standard AirPods, but the Pros could be the only pair of in-ear headphones you ever need.

AirPods Max

So, the rumours were true. Apple has finally delivered its over-ear, noise-cancelling, wireless headphones: the AirPods Max. They're big, heavy, very expensive... and very good. But if you want a pair, you're going to have to join the pre-order queue for now. Stock is appearing online now but at the time of writing they are again sold out in most stores, with the end of March the date for more availability.
