    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?

          Are they worth it? well, not so much. 3 out of 3 have gone bad for my kids (yes, they do take care of them they are adults) each one had one ear go bad and trying several times in different ways, they couldn't get fixed and the "geniuses" at apple had no idea why they failed, or how to fix them. One "genius" even started laughing and told me he hoped I had the warranty. So, unless I magically got three missed by quality control I would say they aren't worth the money. As an aside I've never had any issues with my Samsung Earbuds. That's just my experience with the airpods, your mileage may vary.

              Active Noise Cancellation invented by Apple? It was invented when Steve Jobs was 5 for gods sake. Sack your researcher, they're clearly incompetent.

                              Horrible video setup looks like you’re sitting in a shop that sells home decoration items and there are 5 different lights in the front and background which make the video even more confusing.

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

                                                      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.
