  • The fuller mids and bass are mostly due to the canal occlusion effect. By removing the path for those larger, more powerful waves to escape the canal, more of their energy is retained against the eardrum. This also should mean that they can be played at lower sound pressure levels and achieve the same perceived decibel level. Of course this also means that they can be played at overall higher SPL which would increase the already significant risk of noise induced sensorineural hearing loss.

  • Every minor inconvenience that I've heard people mention about these are honestly pretty simple to solve. The Siri thing with the airpods (having to shout HEY SIRI every time) can be solved pretty easily, as I would assume you have your Phone on you. If you're like me and have the button on the right set for Siri, just hold that down and it would activate (pretty sure you can do it with your hands in your pocket too) The second one is lack of volume control on them, which is pretty much the same solution, use your phone to do it. If you don't have your phone on you, I would assume you're using an apple watch and if you have neither, why are you wearing them (other than for the noise cancelation which I understand) I understand the Airpods/Airpods pro were meant for convenience, but I'm just saying try not to view the inconveniences too much when there are more positives than negatives.

  • my left airpods pro have cracking noise issue, and I noticed some users have experiencing the same problem. it only craks when i put it on noise cancellation or transparency mode, but works fine if i turn off both mode. latest firmware update doesn't seem to fix this issue. is it a hardware problem?

  • You should edit the vid & recommend people not to buy this garbage, I did buy it, after a month it went to warranty, left bud was defective. I asked the guy who was accepting the warranty, he said around 50% of them are defective and its the left one. And they keep loosing connection, only 1 works, then you re-pair it 3 times & then they both work, I hate them so much now :( Apples quality control seems to be total crap.

  • Runners beware - very disappointing. I recently purchased the AirPods Pro and all you can hear is the pounding of your feet echoing in your head. Listening to music is unbearable I had to turn off the music but even without music all you can hear is the pounding noise of running in your head. In addition I called three people while walking outside and all three friends asked if I was speaking on another device and said the sound quality wasn’t great. Overall I am very disappointed......👎

    A SmithA SmithMonth ago
    • A Smith I agree. Massively overrated, I actually went back to my first gen airpods! So comfortable I don’t even notice they’re in my ears and the sound quality is everything I need. The Airpods Pro sound was slightly better but not worth the insane price tag and the comfort was horrid!

  • AirPods 1 and 2 build quality is terrible. Had both in a case since the day I got them, took them out of the case to clean and there's tones of scratches, the earbuds have terribly noticeable seam lines. those magnets are terrible. Pro's build quality is just as bad.
