"The world's best wireless headphones just got even better with the new AirPods. They are powered by the new Apple-designed H1 chip which brings an extra hour of talk time, faster connections, hands-free 'Hey Siri' and the convenience of a new wireless battery case," said Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing.

The new AirPods offer five hours of listening time and three hours of talk time (50 percent more than the previous version) on a single charge, and the Wireless Charging Case holds multiple charges, according to Apple. If you put them in the case for 15 minutes, you can get three hours of listening or two hours of talk.
