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?

Why Amazon link includes your name "linus"? You get paid by posting positive review on them, don't you?

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

The problem is that the only earbuds that fit in my ear are the normal Apple ones. I’ve tried android style ones and they just fall out.

lerogers33 - 23 klukkustundum síðan
These comments crack me up. $250 is not a lot of money for the amount of tech. and attention to the smallest details in AirPods Pros, like the lack of a nub for the silicone ear pieces to go over for a comfortable fit. 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? 🤦🏽‍♂️

So I’m curious if the problem I’m having with my AirPods Pro is just happening to me or not. I’v been looking around the internet and haven’t found anyone else complaining about it. But when watching YouTube (I haven’t experienced this problem on other platforms) the audio starts popping if that makes sense? It doesn’t always happen. But occurs more frequently in transparency mode and when watching videos with talking or not the highest quality audio. When I toggle my AirPods to “off” or “noise cancellation” it goes away. Every once in a while the popping starts in “off” or “noise cancelation” too. In which case I just toggle back to the other mode which stops the popping till it starts again. So it mostly happens in transparency mode, occasionally on the other modes, and only on certain YouTube videos. That’s the best I know how to explain it. Is anyone else experiencing this glitch?

The buds on the new apple AirPods are exactly like the ones on Poundland’s equivalent that last about a month and then breaks , sooooo not exactly revolutionary

I wish I’d waited and didn’t buy the air pods 1st gen. So now I’m stuck with them coz I can’t afford $275 for another pair of air pods . Now CHRISTmas is coming up and a few family members give me money gift cards(I always hint for that) so I assume I’ll get about $800 total from everyone. Soooo I can either buy the Apple Watch I want or the AirPods pro . I waited since the beginning of Apple watch intro to buy an Apple Watch. I never liked any of the past watches. But the one that just came out is awesome. Soooo what do I buy with my CHRISTmas cash? I already have the Apple iPhone 11 Pro in that beautiful midnight green that matches my eyes. I got it as a Bday present two weeks ago. And i love it, I’m an Apple girl. I own everything Apple, well almost everything. And I actually really like my first gen Air Pods, i know they’re not the best but they are great for what I use them for which is talking on the phone. I have other much better ear buds for music, like my Bose and the Samsung . Which are amazing btw
So I have a big decision, the newest Apple Watch or the AirPods pro? Which would you buy.?

I bet my wired headphones sound just as good if not better for a fraction of the price. You have your nose held high when walking around with your fancy wireless headphones I'll have my nose held high with my healthy bank account.

It's cute how Linus admits that Apple has basically caught up to Galaxy Buds and that it's generally inferior to everything else if you really wanted something useful, but the bottom line is, as always - "best at everything".
No. It's called "jack of all trades".
Does it have the best ANC? Nope. Does it have the best sound? Hell nope. Does it have the highest comfort? Fuck no. Does it look the best? Oh hell fucking no. Is it made by Apple? Yes.
You've said it - this concept of "social status", which somehow is supposed to matter in this situation - that's their only true advantage.
Sound-wise they are compared to 20$ headphones, and I'm not even sure if foam will do them any good. But... it does make Mi Airdots better, so who knows... iSheep won't know, that's for sure.
ANC by itself is basically either "killing your ears" or "killing your music". Take your pick. Sure, there are bad quality ANCs out there that ruin the image, but that's the problem - ANC doesn't actually cancel anything - it simply overwrites the sound digitally. And, like any person with more than half a brain knows - anything digital is cancer, it's analog or bust.
To put it into perspective - in some third-world countries the subways are really shitty and really loud, riding them without ear protection is a serious harm. Well, you know what else happens in third-world countries? Beggar musicians! Don't you love how there comes a motherfucker with a boombox and some drum, whose music outroars the subway and whose drum is even louder? Some plebs enjoy it, pay these things and basically make the world a worse place, all because they think that their shitty lives are made better by these musical geniuses instead of the government actually fixing their trains. (Italy - I'm looking at you)
Well, the same thing happens to ANC - you basically use a slightly smarter algorithm to do what most imbeciles have been doing for ages - RAISE THE VOLUME, kill your ears and cringe everyone around. Yes, the result is literally the same. To your ears, at least. But... I'll admit, at least in social terms - ANC is more civil.
This is why real headphones have not only the size that blocks sound, but also support foam instead of silicon. This is what truly HARDWARE sound CANCELLATION is. It won't be perfect, it won't cancel out a plane or a subway, or even a very loud vehicle. But it will truly cancel out the sound without putting any pressure on your ears, because the sound just doesn't get through. And IF anything gets through - you either raise the volume a BIT(if the situation allows it), or you realize that perhaps you are in a time when you probably shouldn't listen to shit anyway, unless you are a dipshit.

So, to summarize - if this 250$ pair is what could be considered a remotely passable Apple product, then I do NOT feel sorry for the millions of imbeciles(Italy, I'm once again looking at you) that bought the original ones..... FOR THE SOCIAL STATUS.
Every time I see an idiot with airpods - I know that it's an idiot. It's the same kind of overcompensating fool that rides some SUV(like a soccer mom), or a Ferrari(at least this one actually looks good), or a huge truck with chain balls hanging from behind, or a with a huge spoiler to resemble a monster truck. That is NOT cool. That's basically pathetic. Wake up, iSheep, that's what people think about you outside of your PersonalSpace.
Instead, when I see people with literally anything but AirCraps, it tells you things. This guy knows about AirDots, good for him. That guy is using GalaxyBuds - well, better than nothing. Someone else is using chinese armature TWS that actually sound good, that's respect, people of culture. Some are using these Liberty Pro 2s or Sony models - that's also quite sad, but that means that people at least care about audio, or what they think they know about audio.
Wearing the airpods, and using the airpods - is not a sign of status. It's literally a Dunce hat.
