Why do my AirPods keep dropping their connection?

Episode 1518 (17:26)

Neil from Phoenix, AZ
Apple AirPods

Neil has Apple AirPods, and he says that the connection drops out a lot. Leo says that's because it uses Bluetooth and it's an antiquated technology that wasn't all that great to begin with. Bluetooth is well known for not always maintaining a stable connection. But Apple has put AirPods on deep discount and Leo suspects a version 2 is coming next month.
