Well marathoners, get excited!
Thanks to a brand new Apple-designed H1 chip inside each pair, the second-gen AirPods will truly provide five solid hours of listening time when fully charged, plus an extra hour of talk time-making them an ideal companion for weekend long runs and yes, even race day.
Can you wear Apple AirPods while running?
That’s a pain. Note that Apple does not offer a water-resistance rating for the standard AirPods. They seem to withstand light sweat just fine — and plenty of people use them at the gym and for running — but it’s unclear how much moisture they can withstand because they aren’t actually sweat resistant.
Do AirPods fall out when you run?
Like the regular EarPods, the AirPods will feel loose but never fell out of an ear. For running, the AirPods might fare a bit better as you don’t have the weight of the cord pulling on the earbuds.
Can sweat ruin AirPods?
Sadly, no. The lack of any kind of IP certification means the AirPods are not sweat-resistant as well. The lack of any kind of water and sweat-resistance means that if you ever end up liquid damaging your AirPods, Apple is not going to replace it for you under warranty.
