Is anyone else reminded of tampon strings coming out of the ears with those Air Pods?

I really didn't expect Gen 2 to have the same design.
I really don’t see what’s the fuss over its design. I admit to being a little self conscious of it at first, but the reality was that they had always attracted more curiosity and interest than derision. Everyone around me was genuinely more interested in how it worked and using them soon became part of normal everyday life.

I think if someone has issues with its appearance, it says more about them than the people wearing them. Don’t wear them if you don’t like the design. The rest of us will continue to.

Needs noise cancellation and a less leaky design. Almost useless for commuting on tube/subway/train/plain etc.. Either I can't hear a thing or I turn them up so loud that everybody around me can hear what I am listening too.

Replaced mine with Jabra 65T's last year. Much better design with all the ease of AirPods.

The design works perfectly fine as it is, it’s the same exact design as the wired EarPods they include with the iPhone, minus the wire. I suspect there are very few complaints with the design accountability for the AirPods.

As for noise isolation, actually I don’t believe Apple will include this for the next version of the AirPods. I suspect more Siri advancements, water resistance, additional color and it’s been rumored to do some type of implementation with health features. E

I would LOVE if they incorporated a better ‘find’ function, as the current one is laughable. I think a speaker in the case so a loud chime could be produced upon demand would be ideal.

I don’t see how active noise cancellation can be added without giving up battery life. Unless they do in ears and do passive NC, which would make more sense for the rumored similar sound and better bass
