It will cannibalise sales of the AirPods 2 in the regular case since design and spec wise between the two are about the same.
gen1 u still can buy from Lazada etc. there r deals from time to time
I don't think it's gen 1, the price increased by $1. It should be the second gen AirPods in a non-wireless charging case.
yeah. guess Gen 2 improvement is so minimal that Gen 1 got phased out straightaway.

going by Gen 1's sales number, can tell the demand is there for them to hold on to the same price.

This current new one has a diffierent ‘H1’ headphone chip, which should be of some improvement (including sound) over the older W1 chip, no just faster and more reliable connection.

For AirPod fans, might be an OK purchase but improvements are not significant. I myself also don’t use siri. When it’s out, I may go test it.

Though it may not have the best audio quality, but for iPhone users, it is still the absolute most convenient earphones in terms of ease of overall use and pairing.

Good for gen 1 user like me. Less tempted this time to get the next gen since the improvement is so insignificant.
