The second-generation AirPods model, which first launched in 2019, feature a more traditional Apple EarPods design. They also pack a proprietary H1 chip for easy painting with Apple devices.

Apple's new $129 price point for the second-generation AirPods is significantly lower than the previous retail price tags of $159 for the non-wireless model and $199 for the variant with the wireless charging case. The new price is even cheaper than AirPods found on some third-party retailers.

Currently, it isn't clear if the $129 price applies to the AirPods with no wireless charging case or the model compatible with wireless charging.

It's worth pointing out that Apple's third-generation AirPods, which have a more AirPods Pro-style design, are cheaper than the second-generation AirPods were at launch. They retail for $179 and feature wireless charging and MagSafe support.
