Finally broke down and bought some Air Pods

Amazon has them for $129.98 with the regular charging case.
I don’t need the Pros, as I will mostly use them for voice calls.
Also, I had some CC points and an Amazon GC, so nothing out of pocket.

I was solidly in the "AirPods are a waste of money" camp until my kid got a pair for her birthday and told me how much she enjoyed them. I bought some for myself just after I started working from home due to COVID-19 shutdowns. They've been great for online meetings, walks around the neighborhood, and getting household chores done while on the phone.

Love my gen 1 AirPods. Thinking of upgrading to the latest as the batteries are only lasting about 1.5 hours.

The latest, being AirPods Pro, will fit differently than the AP and AP 2.

I found the eartips difficult to remove, and couldn't get a good fit for one ear.

And they hurt my ears after an hour.

The more I wore them, the quicker they hurt my ears, even with a day or two respite.

LOVE the AP 2.

So just be aware they may or may not work as well for you as your current 'Pods.

People who have not tried Airpods hate them and feel they are a waste of money.
People who have tried Airpods love them.

These are AP2 not the pros.
I read all the things you are saying about the pros and decided against them.

Love mine. Bought them back when I had my iPhone 7, whose lightning port refused to pass along audio signals of any sort. I had to return the first set I got as one side refused to pair with anything, but smooth sailing since, give or take.

Appologies, rg.

I should have noted I was addressing davemachine's post:

Love my AirPods Pro. I use the active noise cancelling all the time - mowing with my Ego electric mower (not as noisy as a gas however). I have never had to have volume above half no matter what the ambient noise.

Worked on an airplane when that was a thing (tho not as good as my Bose QCs).

I know many who love their original air pods.

We have had bad luck with the original Airpods, my daughter has gone through two sets of them, the second being Apple warranty replacements. She has been given a new earpiece at different times for each ear, (one side replaced twice under warranty, and even the charging case has been replaced. Her Airpods are failing again. The earpieces start becoming quieter and quieter until one side is always much louder than the other one. One time they would not charge properly. One of the Apple Geniuses told us that he's seen quite a few of the gen 1 Airpods with issues, but none of the gen 2 Airpods have come back for service/replacement.
