    Just got them after having normal AirPods for just over 2 years. I find the ear tips weird but I’m getting used to it. The noise cancellation is so strange. It’s like I’m finally understanding what my 96 year olds Nans hearing is like. It’s going to take some getting used to for certain.

    Lmao I noticed I got no ecosystem going. I got the Google Pixel 3aXL, the Samsung Galaxy Watch and the Apple Airpod Pros. 🤷🏼‍♂️ oh well.

  • DimDiDima

    Do you need ear hooks for these? I broke the mics on my regular AirPods from them falling too much while exercising..

  • Z15TEEN

    I almost swear apple make huge sum of money out of these airpods than any product in their lineup.

    Simulated isn’t accurate at all. You can still hear the background noise a bit.

    Not like I'm gonna specifically go for the airpods pro, cuz well, I'm broke (haha), but the reason I don't go with any true wireless or even neckband earplugs is cuz I hate charging it up. Like, I could just buy a pair a super cool wired iem plugs, and I could get the great sound quality, and not have to remember to charge it up before using it. Also, uhh, 4 hours is a joke. Like really.

    <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="309">5:09</a> Where does this AirPod pro app come from? I can't seem to locate it! thanks

    • Toa nuriamer
      Toa nuriamer

      nixl That's weird. Are you sure they're connected properly? Do they work on your Mac at all? There isn't any other way to switch modes on MacOS and it always works for me. Again, you go to the little speaker icon on the menu bar, select your AirPods Pro under "Output Devices" and choose the mode you want.

    • nixl

      @Toa nuriamer thanks again, but all I see there is the "AirPods Pro" listed and a battery level indication....Can't see the 3 sound options anywhere...

    • Toa nuriamer
      Toa nuriamer

      @nixl You click on the sound icon at the top of your screen, then select your AirPods.

    • nixl

      @Toa nuriamer Yes thanks. That works well. I can switch modes directly from the post stem too, without visual verification though. I didn't know how to get to the panel that they all seem to take for granted we know how to get to. I have yet to find out how to get to this sort of panel in MacOs too. The bluetooth settings do not provide this access.

    • Toa nuriamer
      Toa nuriamer

      nixl I thought you wanted to know how to easily switch between all three modes.

    Hey you should do a review on the Huawei Freebuds 3 They are open fit and have noise cancellation 🙋‍♂️

  • JOCMusic

    is it just me, or are regular airpods more comfy? just my opinion, dont be mad bro😂

    • JOCMusic

      Matt Dasilva i have them as well, idk the rubber tips on airpods pro i hate tbh, like idk they feel like something injecting into your ear

    • Matt Dasilva
      Matt Dasilva

      Nah I have the generation 1 and my AirPod case/shell makes a loud ass crack sound if I click it either left or right and in my opinion they are uncomfortable.

  • PR33CJ4NT

    I think Apple should add a passcode for AirPod. That we could make through Bluetooth. So it requires a code for pairing with an unfamiliar device. Would decrease the theft for these popular earphones.

    No volume control on the buds is a HUGE issue, can't believe I'm not seeing more comments about it. Its the one thing stopping me buying these and instead getting the new pixel buds coming out.

  • Daniel Hendricks

    yeah yo, im more impressed with the transparency mode, then i am with the noise cancelation. most other earbuds use the mic to hear the outside noise then use the drivers to pump the noise into your ear. the airpods legit feel like you have just taken them off, its genuinely unreal

    I have these different earphones (different brand) and they are really good in so many ways but my problem with them is that they stick out so far that when I’m riding on my bike the wind blows on them and I have to have the volume really loud Do AirPods 1, AirPods2 and AirPods Pro do this?

  • fuelbasti

    Would love to see other coloring of the air pods. This shining white is quite bright. How cool would it be to have the same color choice of the phones too.

    The Sony’s don’t sound better. Sony make equipment that sounds good for five minutes - and therefore good for reviewers who don’t know the difference. The Airpods are ‘flatter’ sounding, but that’s better. The open-back helps too.

    The Samsung gear Icon X from 2018 are amazing. Have a longer battery life than this, have the same audio transparency and you can store songs ON the earphones

  • MediSpring

    When AirPods came out in 2016, everyone said: oh look how ridiculous they look. Nowadays, everyone accustom to them. You can see them everywhere in the streets. It shows that Apple only has to go its way to form people's opinions. By the way: the AirPods Pro look even better than the AirPods

  • Tomas T

    I was deciding whether to get the PowerBeats Pro or the AirPods Pro... practically the same price and owned by Apple. The deciding factor was the Transparency mode. I love hearing the surrounding when I'm outside on a walk. PowerBeats Pro only cancel the noise and offer no Transparency!

    Thanks for the video, I just unwrapped mine today. They are comfortable. The noise cancellation performance is lower than say an over the ear Bose, however they are fine. They have a purpose for music and calls. FYI: That little pocket that you do not use on your jeans, was designed for change/coins...Hence it is a "change pocket:"

    I bought my wife and I both AirPod pros. Best in ear ear buds you can buy imo.. I can listen to music and have a conversation at the same time

  • sav0405

    so what are the perfect headphone for flying? I have the over the ear sony xm31000s and they do a great job. Wish they made a smaller size for people with smaller heads as they often slide back when i'm trying to sleep.

  • Decyfer

    It apple is build quality not performance that is why everyone bought the apple products, people can buy for features but for say if you cant adjust noises people will buy it because apple is reputable and half the money you does not go to building it gos to things like advertisements etc!!!

  • Casualkass

    Hmm right now I’m not about earbuds because I love overhead headphones because of the better noice canceling and usually better sound quality right now I have the Bose qc35 ii and I love them I went from AirPods 2 to Bose and I hate the AirPods design because it hurts but that’s just me (I really recommend the Bose qc35 ii)
