One annoyance I always had with the original Airpods using them with my Macbook Pro was intermittent connection issues. Occasionally when I closed the lid of my Macbook to run to another room, let's say make lunch...and I left the pods in...I would hear the pods make the "bonk" connect noise several times, then when I opened the lid of my Macbook the bluetooth icon would show that the Airpods were connected but nothing would play. Turning off bluetooth and turning back on sometimes worked, but usually I would have to reboot the Macbook, which was quite annoying. So I always tried my darndest to take the pods off and put them back in their case when I was leaving the Macbook for more than a minute or two. With the V2 Pods (or the new software) things seemed to get better. Usually I can wander off with the pods in, then open the lid and get right back to listening to music, but not always. Sometimes I still have to re-connect with the pods or turn bluetooth off then back on. Occasionally I still have to reboot. This happened to me again today. Wandered off with the pods in. Heard the "bonk" every few minutes. Came back to the Macbook. Bluetooth icon showed connected. Nope, no audio. Connected to the pods with my iPhone and it still showed connected on my Mac. Finally had to reboot. I'm happy that things have gotten better but I'm quite disappointed that this still happens occasionally.
