Now I confused again
So it’s $69 or $99? Yours out of warranty?
My AirPods confirm out of warranty

Seriously if no one has gone down Apple store themselves stop confusing others.

I changed at S$69 because it’s considered battery change. Only if you lost or maybe smashed one then it’s S$99.

Their battery change is one-for-one exchange. Depending on crowd can be 10 or 30 minutes.

Just go down, no obligation for free diagnosis. Not happy with the price then just don’t do.

You joking right .... replace AirPods 1 with AirPods 2 you not happy?

Don’t make sense to just change 1 side of the AirPods when you know the “better” side will degrade very soon too

Of course? I have gen 2 already so it doesn’t make sense to have 2 gen 2 AirPods

Just did a battery replacement at Apple Store. Really 1 for $69.

They checked my old AirPods and have the battery issue. Told them that my AirPods left side deplete very fast and Battery was like from 50% go up to 90%+ in less than a minute.

I told them say change both sides and they did a 1 to 1 exchange for me at $138.

Now the battery drop very slow. Was at 93% just now at around 6:50pm. Now 7:30pm battery is at 80% for both sides for both.

Overall quite satisfied. They say there is no way to maintain the battery level. Worth the money.

And yes the changed 1st gen for 1st gen. They even showed me in their system

Sounds cool, I may drop by Apple store to get both side exchanged especially when I drop one side several times , can consider get the standalone wireless charger at the same time too

I dropped my old one several times too, and there is some soft static sound when nothing is being played on the background. It’s very obvious when you are in a quiet room. The replacement one which I have doesn’t have any
