According to Macrumors maybe but more likely early next year but who knows!

"Rumours suggest Apple is working on third-generation AirPods that will feature a new design, improved water resistance, and possibly, noise cancellation. These new AirPods are rumored for late 2019 to early 2020, so we could potentially see them sometime in 2019, but it's sounding more like we're going to have to wait until 2020."
Shame this isnt on the wireless charging one
They work with all devices but the one-size-fits-all fit is awful, there are also better 'true wireless' headphones for less money - it depends what you want, if you're a fitness user then AirPods are the worst things you can buy. These are very much casual use only.

I'm not apple fan boy but apple have the market in cool, simple and great fitting headphones. Tad expensive but the quality of build and sound is spot on.

It’s nothing about being a fanboy. It’s a bit of rigid plastic so it can’t possibly fit everyone and the sound quality is appalling - well, that’s an exaggeration, it’s about on par one the wired ones they include in the box. And after all that, countless complaints about the batteries giving in after a year as they’re basically charging or discharging all the time - which is a constraint of the technology. I bought a set as everyone was raving about them when they came out but returned them after a week - and I do use an iPhone.

The fit and sound quality hasn't changed between each version. But I am talking about the original ones.

I have never seen anyone wear these running beyond a Saturday morning Parkrun or a 10K. And you do notice these things if you're into fitness and tech, you spot the trends - like you see people wearing Garmin watches for half-marathon or above distance and not Galaxy or Apple Watches. Why would I put or expect to put £1 silicone earhooks onto something I paid this much for? I'll just buy proper headphones engineered for fitness like the Plantronics Backbeat Fit 3100 if I want open-sound or Jabra Elite Active 65t's if I wanted closed-sound.

You cannot possibly say that because they fit your ears, they fit everyone. The sound quality is on par with EarPods which are 'ok'. Obviously sound quality and fit aren't number one priority for some and that's fine. I don't know how far you run either, but these are not sealed against liquid ingress so sweat will eventually get the better of them - that's if the battery doesn't first.

What about people like myself who have no choice but to wear these type as normal earbuds hurt too much?
There isn't much option at all with this style of ear "tip".
I'm using a Langdom L5 Bluetooth set purely because they use the same style of apple ones, with the noodle wire, its annoying.
I would love a proper wireless option but literally none exist outside of these AirPods or the knock of clones.

Platronics BackBeat Fit 3100 are not 'earbud' fit. They are open and hang off your ears by the loop, they don't apply any pressure to your ear canal at all. The 'ear tip' on the Plantronics is soft silicone.

No options not at a stupid price, and massive.
To be clear, I don't have airpods, and I will never buy them, its far too much money.

They're massive because they have loops so they don't fall out. But as to 'stupid price', what are AirPods then? I am sure the AirPods fit some people just fine but only Apple would think you could make something out of non-flexible plastic and it would fit everyone.

You've changed it now - but yes, some off-brand headphones from Amazon are probably your best bet then. The Fit 3100s you can find as low as £50 and at that price they're a great choice for runners or gym-goers.

I use Jaybird Bluetooth earphones for running. Then take em off and have my Morrison's Big Daddy breakfast for a fiver then put them back on again and slowly run home, just across the car park.
If there is an improved version with noise cancellation the price will likely be higher, I imagine they will continue to sell this version too. But yeah depends what your looking for. Heat from me.
If you have never done an Amazon Top Up before, you can combine this with '£6 extra when you top up £80 or more' offer to get it at £123. I used the same method successfully.

That's fine, I just haven't seen anyone serious about it wearing one, mostly because I'm surprised it'd last long enough with GPS on - even Apple say it has 6-hour GPS-on time, that's less than a quarter what a proper fitness watch will do. With Cellular and/or music over Bluetooth it'd be even less.

When I used mine for the Manchester Marathon I had it running music constantly, and it lasted perfectly well and had spare charge left over. It’s a S3 GPS, so about 18 months old. I wouldn’t buy a separate watch, works well enough for me paired with some Aftershokz bone conducting headphones

To be honest, I didn't say people didn't, I just said that I hadn't ever seen it. And I would imagine an S3 or S4 would be a lot better. Of course, the first-gen didn't even have GPS. When I did that event I used a Garmin Fenix 3 and it only lost about 15% charge. I can't even remember how the Watches came up, but in terms of the product itself, I think the watch is a much better designed 'package' than the AirPods, not enough to make me give up a Garmin but they're getting good enough to be a viable alternative for some at least.

All reviews say the sound quality hasn't changed between both versions - so any differences are a placebo. Either way, if you look at price alone, the sound quality isn't proportionate to the cost.

Mate you haven't got any.

I actually have some. I have actually ran 4 or 5 half marathons wearing them.Thats why im commenting.
I'm not interested in what you see people running in.
Anyway i haven't got time to argue about trivial matters.
Im off for a run with whatever earphones i like.

I had some as I said before. I don't care what you claim to run with or if they fit your ears, they don't fit everyone. The sound quality is poor for £129 headphones, you can pretend they sound great if you want to justify spending that kind of money on them. And like you, I really don't care what you claim to have done with them since you 'don't care what I see or have done'. And FWIW, I am doing exactly the same as you - people who might be thinking about buying some but don't want to end up making a mistake, as I did. Go buy them from Apple if you want to try them out and have the return option.

I think you’re someone who just likes being seen with the latest toy and conspicuous consumption. I bet you also defend the Macbooks with the butterfly keyboards that break.

I don’t run no I suppose you don’t run in marathons or Ironman but ok... I could prove it with Strava but then I’d literally be worse than you.

Wear what you like, buy what you like and be seen in what you like - that’s what it’s all about isn’t it? I forgot that if you don’t comment on an Apple product with maximum zealotry or god-forbid, don’t like something they produce, out come the pitchforks. Some people might actually want to know the pitfalls so they don’t end up spending £130-160 on something useless for themselves.
