    If the rumors are true about Apple introducing the AirPods 2, what would it take for you to upgrade from your current pair of AirPods?

    Price and improvements! If it's over $200 I'll have to take it into consideration. Almost 3 years later and the smooth functionality of my airpods are not what they once were. If the improvements are very small compared to the original release I'll buy the 1st Gen and save the bit of money.

    Longer battery life. Touch Buttons on the side like to be able to get Siri and pause.

    I know version 1 has some feature where you either take one out of your ear or press it and it will pause.

    I will upgrade regardless of anything.
    I love my current AirPods and I’m sure I’ll love the new ones more.

    My feelings about it is more inline with yours. My current AirPods are still going strong without any issues, however, if there’s a significant improvement to both sound and functionality then I’ll consider upgrading. If not, I’ll continue with what I have.

    If the rumors are indeed true about the new version of AirPods coming in a BLACK color, I will be getting a pair.

    Humm, your AirPods battery is still good? I'm an early adaptor and I'm lucky if I get 30 minutes of usage out of mine (the case is still good)

    For ‘me’, battery life is not an issue, especially when the charging case can recharge then to capacity within minutes, but I’m one who typically use only one at a time. I only listen to music with them on occasion, especially at work, but I’ve been so swamped with projects to where I don’t have the time to even do that now.

    I guess than can depend on moderate to heavy usage. I know I use mine heavily m-f, I may get 2.5 -3 hours with music depending on volume, Call time roughly an hour. Also semi lost the ability to put in another airpods and it connect to switch to stereo over mono, I have to take both airpods out wait for a disconnection then put both in *.

    I hear ya. Getting the AirPods in black will definitely be tempting for me, but color alone will not cause ‘me’ to rush out and upgrade. Know what a I mean?

    While I love my Airpods, I probably won't upgrade, even when the ones I have stop working.

    I'm going to need a new pair of AirPods soon since my charging case isn't holding a charge as well as it use to due to daily heavy usage. Also my left AirPod only will no longer charge to 100% more like 96-97% tops and the overall battery life has diminished compared to when they were new. Now I have to charge up my charging case when it falls below 50% because it will no longer fully charge my AirPods if the case is below that threshold. So it's the perfect time for me to spring for AirPods 2nd gen.

    For me, I think the sound quality would need to be greatly improved. Without the sound improvement, I'll likely stick with my "series 1." When the batteries degrade too much, it will depend on the cost difference between "replacing" the battery and a the new Airpods. I've had my AirPods for over 2 years now and the battery in each "Pod" has lost capacity, but not to the point I'm ready to replace them.

    I don’t have the first gen but am intrigued by them. My main concern is whether or not they’ll stay in my ears, and of course, the price!

    As of right now, considering is all I’ll be doing with regard to second gen AirPods. My first gen AirPods still last a good long time so I can’t see a reason to upgrade.

    They need better software, similar to the Galaxy Wear app that controls the Galaxy Buds. You can use a limited equalizer (5 settings), and completely program the tap functions.

    I’ve never owned AirPods because they don’t stay in my ears when my hair is down. I’ve been using the Bose Soundsport Frees, which I absolutely love, but I would buy AirPods if they came in black & I could find some black & the fit was a little better.

    It won't take much for me to upgrade since I lost my AirPods last week. So if after March 25th there is an event that introduces AirPods 2 for purchase, I'll go ahead and buy them. Otherwise, I'll just buy the current AirPods again.

    I'm right there with you. It is for this reason why I'll be upgrading regardless. But my hope is there are battery life improvements. Audio improvements would be nice too.

    I personally feel like Apple could do a better job in the 2nd gen in ensuring the longevity of the battery in the AirPods. I've seen A LOT of folks comment on how their batteries haven't aged well.

    same here. after 2 years of loving them I'm disappointed in the battery drain. No sense having the batteries replaced, it's about $10 less than buying new ones from what I saw.

    Welp, I have to take it back.
    I’ll just wait for my current AirPods to break or some kind of urge to overcome me to get the new AirPods.

    I’m upgrading something. I’ll either go with the whole shabang or I’ll get the charging case for my current AirPods.

    Won’t take much persuasion at all.
