AirPods Pro!

Surprise gift from my dad. Just unpackaged the charging cable and ... I’ll get my Lightning USB cable because I don’t own anything with USB-C yet.

I should pickup a second Qi charger now. WIRES ARE SO PASSÉ.

Must play with them.
But must work instead.

I've had mine almost a week now. a definite upgrade from the regular Airpods though previously I found nothing lacking in them.

If the fit is not right, try smaller fitting buds.

Enjoy!

The fit seems OK. Not completely sold on the sound yet. Using high quality lossless sources on the iPhone these are far clearer than Apple’s wired earbuds but there’s almost no warmth and the bass is essentially missing. I’ve played with the 3 settings; Transparency isn’t much different from Noise Cancelling. The “Off” (flat EQ, I suppose) is clearly meant for people with poor sources use a lot of EQ in their player software?

Unsurprisingly I get a bit more warmth by pressing in on them without the midrange becoming muddy too much.

this was true in my case. with the regular Airpods i often forgot they were on. with the medium buds the Pro ships with the sound was great but i was very aware of their presence in my ears. i switched to the smaller buds and it's pretty close to unawareness again.

After hearing Dwight & Flaco's version, the other versions don't do it for me....

I got the Airpods Pro as part of the back to school promotion when I got my 16" MBP. I like them! These, with the large buds, actually fit in my ears and give a nice solid frequency response with decent, while not overpowering, bass.

Any other Apple ear phones, whether they are the Earpods, Airpods, Beats Powerbeats, etc. have sounded tinny with no bass whatsoever. They just didn't fit my ears properly. I was finally able to get the Earpods to sound decent after getting the Earhoox [www.earhoox.com] but this wouldn't work with the Airpods as you would need to remove them each time you replace the Airpods in the charging case.

I bought the Dekoni earphone tips for my AirPod Pros. Really like them.

Somebody posted a while ago that the Pros can be used as hearing aids with ios 14. That intrigued me but I'm concerned that people would think it's pretty rude to have the AirPods in the whole time I'm talking with them. Am I worried about nothing? I don't want to have to explain myself to multiple people.

I’ll check them out. I need to try the ones that come with the AirPods first. Sitting down they’ve been OK (the medium ones, or whatever they ship with installed) but I got in the car yesterday and lost one without warning down between the seat and the console! Has to fish it out in the dark.

That’s good also. I think what I like about the original is how deadpan the delivery is against the struggle depicted in the lyrics. And I like the simple 2-part harmonies.

No, there is transparency mode which enables you to talk with them in.
