my airpods 2nd gen i purchased in 2019 died a few days ago, went into the store and they basically snickered at me along with a comment from the genius bar "they lasted you two years? That's good!"
I would take that to an Apple authorized repair shop if you can (I honestly don't know if they do the headphones) and see what they say. I had a MacBook Pro many years ago with the nVidia 8600 GPU. Known issue where it would die, black screen. I took it to a Genius Bar and they tried to tell me I needed to "replace the logic board and it will be $1100". I was like, the computer, with the known issue, that I can hear do the boot chime, that I can watch it get an IP from my router, I can then ping that IP, and even SSH into the machine? That computer needs the motherboard replaced? I don't think so... I took it to a local Mac shop and the guy fixed it in a day or two, sent the bill to Apple. He probably did replace the board, but that wasn't the point, it didn't cost me anything because it was a known issue Apple was covering. Genius Bar employees are usually early college aged kids, don't assume they represent what the company is willing to do or even know what they are talking about.
While batteries gon' batterie (I had a user just the other day with an 8 month old Dell with a dead battery) and those batteries are very small, 2 years isn't "good". Tolerable maybe, but not good.
