      Pros? Cons? Generally worth it?

      Wearing them right now, wear them 24/7 tbh. Good noise cancellation, good sound quality, just good overall and mindless thots probably think it’s a plus in your attractiveness.

      I’m using them since the release and those are simply the best pair of headphones I’ve used.
      Not a fan of double squeeze for next track, liked double tap on the non-Pros better.

        But in general are the non-pros better than the pros?

          Significantly. I honestly think the standard AirPods shouldn’t even be for sale at this point, not in [current year.] The AirPods "Pro" should be the standard AirPods and the standard AirPods should have been gone long ago. The standard ones are just missing a lot of basic features that even much cheaper earbuds have.

      They have very small batteries so you had better be okay with replacing $250 headphones every 1.5-2 years depending on usage.

      If you’re not an apple scrote and not gonna benefit from device auto-switching I would buy something else. Like those new transparent meme headphones, forgot the name.

            I’m just disappointed in Teenage Engineering. Usually everything they make works perfectly. Sometimes their products might have deliberate limitations and controversial design choices, but this may be their first "unintentionally bad" product.

      I use them for work because they are great for voice calls, but I prefer my Jabra 75T Active. Better sound, battery, fit and you can shower with them.

        How do these do on Windows 10? Still trying to find in ear buds that actually have good mic support for Windows. Most are too quiet and no one can hear you.

        If you own an Iphone sure. I don’t know if you have access to the features and app on ipad/mac but you are locked out of a lot of features on android. Probably on windows too unless someone made an application.

      just freaking works when you pair it with a iphone, noice canceling is good. using it 24/7 at work/gym

      Sony wf-1000xm4 has probably better sound/noise canceling but dont how comfy they are.

        transparency mode is surprisingly good, spatial audio is nice for movies but not music, anc is better than it should be. there are at least 3 pros.

      Just drop a couple hundred and see. I was hesitant for so long, sticking with my wired earbuds in some contrarian stance but they’re really quite elegantly designed. You should get them at least just to experience what the modern listening experience is being optimized towards, just like looking back and saying you had a walkman in the 90’s

      Bought mine around a month ago, use them every day. Good quality, good noise cancel, charges quick, can use either earbud or both, can connect via bluetooth to pc.

      unironically just get galaxy buds or plus or pro. don’t get the galaxy buds 2 tho, they have this weird bug where when only one bud is connected, unless you use a samsung phone the audio is tinny like 5 dollar drug store headphones. it’s something to do with their special snowflake proprietary audio codec. but the older ones are woke af.

        These are 10/10 on mobile, but their mics don’t work properly on Windows.

      Pros: good ANC, can sleep with them without the ANC buzzing out or plastic stabbing your ears, pairs well with iPhones and can also pair with other shit, acceptable frequency response, charges relatively quickly, sits in ears without raping your ear holes, good price
      Cons: shit battery life for all day listening, playback controls don’t work on non apple products, very easy to lose
      I love them, much better than Bose shit and costs less too.
      Normal air pods are dog shit.

      Like all Apple earbuds, a bit bass-heavy, and the bare minimum when it comes to sound quality.
      Noise cancelling is solid, transparency mode is finicky imo, and the rubber buds feel like all other ones: If you don’t mind, it’s fine, if you find them generally uncomfortable, these will feel the same.
      6/10 as earbuds. Worth it for extra software features if you primarily use iOS.

      Battery life isn’t all that great, maybe 5-6 hours. Sound great, nice and tight bass, good sound separation and positional accuracy for in ears. Audio latency is compensated on iOS and macOS. I paid £145 for mine brand new, wouldn’t pay more though since they will wear out within a couple of years. Better than any wired earphones I’ve tried, though the most expensive I have tried are fiio FD1s which were a little too V sounding.

      pros: discounted with an Mac and student email
      easy to connect and do not drop out
      comfortable
      half decent sound quality

      cons: terrible for the environment
      cannot be repaired
      2 year usage before the batteries no longer work
      lightning connector
      fewer features for non apple devices
      no volume control
      easy to lose

      Pixel Buds are better in almost every way. Everything the AirP*ds """Pro""" do, the Pixel Buds can do better AND they’re cheaper and more comfortable. You can buy Pixel Buds A-Series for $99 at https://store.google.com/product/pixel_buds_a_series?hl=en-US

      One thing is certain. They won’t last for more than 2 years case the battery will degrade a lot and you’ll be hearing constant static if you don’t get it replaced. Which is incredibly time consuming and expensive and you’d be better off just buying a new pair

      As a product they are excellent. In most songs to me they sound identical to my “real” headphones.
      I have had to replace both units twice due to the rattling issue, kind annoying but at least now even after 2 years I still have a new battery.
