Buy if You Game With AirPods
Do you use AirPods when you are gaming on your iPhone and iPad? If so, you'll definitely want to upgrade to AirPods 2nd gen.
Apple says that the new model has 30% less latency when gaming. This means you'll hear game sounds closer to when they are actually happening in the game.
This is most important in games like PUBG or Fortnite where you need to hear where an enemy is based on footsteps or when they fire at you. You'll get a better gaming experience on your iPhone, iPad or Mac with AirPods 2nd gen than the originals. AirPods are a great option for pairing up with the new Apple Arcade subscription service.
This isn't the sole reason you should buy the new AirPods, but it is one of the reasons to factor in as you look into if the newest AirPods 2 are best for you.
