Let's take apart these wireless earbuds [Apple AirPods 2] and see all the components. Then we'll explore audio codecs and the world of digital audio, and see how it all works.
Check out for all kinds of PCBs, easy ordering, and quick delivery.
Take a look at their PCB Assembly, for an inexpensive population of the components on your PCBs.

This video explores the inner workings of wireless earbuds and specifically, we'll explore these Apple AirPods 2. We'll give you a general overview of how these earbuds work, and then dive into how Audio is represented digitally. We'll dive even deeper into Audio sampling rates, and audio bit depth. Finally, we'll give a brief overview of audio file formats.
