YES FINALLY a coating to stop them falling out of my ears & in black I'm definitely getting them for my android phone. I hate in-ear canal type.

Is it just me or announcing different color options for devices is a huge big whoop. Don't get me wrong, more colors are great, but it's not headline news..... Also, airpods need to be redesigned to sit in the ear better

It's not just the colour it's they may have a coating on them which is the number 1 problem with the current design.coating will help them stop falling out of your ears.

They better improve sound, like BIIIIG time. It's really pathetic, that 20$ TWS headphones sounds way better.

"If this is true, then we can assume that Apple will also sell the new case separately for those who are happy with the first-gen earbuds but want the added convenience." This Apple we're talking about. They're all about squeeze every dollar out of their customers. So I'm expecting the case and headphones to have different charging points, so you can't use the first-gen

I would pay $200 for them if they do have better battery life, better sound, and a space gray variant. I feel like at $150, they have been really,really worth it. Honestly I use them more than the $400 headphones I also have bought because they are more handy to grab and are way more comfortable. I am a lucky one that they fit my ears perfectly - never had them fall out, even running.
