    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?

                  Regarding the noise cancellation of the AirPods Pro. I understand it prevents noise from getting into my ear when I listen to music on a windy day. But what’s with calling? The old AirPods used to pick up lots of wind and the person on the other end had trouble understanding me. Is this noise cancelled too?

                                Meh, I’d wear my galaxy buds at work which was around 90db at all times and they did a solid job cancelling that noise out. The Apple ones look like a ear tampon, cool for those edgy hipsters that want attention but not for me.

                                      Did I miss it or did he skip out on the fact that the Airpod Pros lack volume adjustment controls on the earbuds themselves?

                                        I only really care about three things when it comes to earbuds: sound quality, build quality, and comfort. Do these things really come close to the performance of something much cheaper like the Shure SE-215's? I seriously doubt it. I can't imagine these holding a candle to normal IEM's in the same price range.

                                        I don't care for active noise cancellation, the 90% noise isolation I'm getting with regular IEM's is perfectly fine, and doesn't screw up the sound.

                                        Being wireless is nice, until the battery runs out... or you want to use it with something that doesn't have blue-tooth... or when you get latency issues... or when the battery dies... or when the DAC isn't really all that good (is it really 24/96, Apple aims at music production too right?). Until they get all of that sorted out, my earbuds will be wired.

                                          You actually HAVE to have the internal microphone if you want to do active noise cancellation. There's no way to update the filters without a feedback signal. Most ANC headphones should have this technology. You can technically get away without an internal microphone if you have a very good model of the sound distortion of the headphone already, but that's not likely.

                                                            Apple really needs to go deeper in the hifi-market, like, audiophile/studio speakers deep. Not talking about that trash brand beats.
