    Apple finally gave Airpods a big upgrade with the AirPods Pro wireless earbuds, with in-ear tips and active noise cancelling. So can they stand up to the competition?

    I hate the AirPods Pro. I just couldn't get into the feeling of the ANC.

      I love my AirPods Pro, I recommend these over the Sony XZF339A1VV24L9XS911NVN23Z-AS212UMP7613X, but both are good.

            Although its fashionable to shit on Apple, they DO make good shit from time to time. I've never been unhappy with my iPhone, and until they started doing those godawful new keyboards, the Macbooks where straight up solid machines for business/internet use. Yeah the 2017 and 2018 MBPs sucked eggs. Though the speakers on the 2019s are great I'm not sure if I'm ready to forgive apple for those 2017/18 keyboards. So you know, brand loyalty or hostility is dull. Treat these things on a case by case basis imho.

                while quality increases linearly, cost for said quality improvement increases exponentially. if you consider the price justified or not, is personal taste. true to the naming active noise cancellation starts at 50 bucks, but i wager the manufacturer of said product does not public the frequency curve and the product is likely not a true in-ear, but a neck collar type.

                  This review has to be a joke. I can name a handful of buds that have better SQ and cost half the price! Go figure.

                                            Don't care about social status. Just like the design of Apple products. They genuinely improve the quality of my daily life.

Linus highlighted cheaper ear buds that come with tradeoffs I wouldn't want to put up with like the audio latency of the Galaxy buds or the lack of ANC in another brand. You know what to expect when dealing with Apple so why jump on a great tech. review video just to complain? 🤦🏽‍♂️
