    I Purchased the Sony‘s a few weeks before the AirPods Pro were announced, based on multiple reviews proclaiming them the best sounding true wireless NC buds. I used them a fair amount, and did agree they sound very good, although I do feel the app was overly complicated, and the fit and feel of the buds themselves wasn’t ideal. When the AirPods were announced, I bought them online thinking that I would keep whichever ones I liked better. Unfortunately, my return window for the Sony’s is no longer available, but if it was they would be going back. They just don’t feel as premium, and although they do sound great, I like the sound of the AirPods pros better. When using them, I sometimes don’t even feel like they’re there… Something you will never say with the Sony’s. Based on many of the other comments, I’m sure many will disagree, and that’s OK. I listen to a wide variety of musical genres, and the Sony‘s just don’t measure up to the experience the AirPods Pro provide.

      I have both and being a music producer, Sony’s blow them out of the water in every way. Noise cancelling, there is no question the Sony’s are better

        I was an Android guy for many years, but converted to iOS a couple of years ago and I won't be going back. However, Apple's ear bud design has NEVER fit my ears. At all. I'm sure I'm in the minority, but they simply don't fit me. They feel awkward and fall out really easily. I was REALLY excited when the Airpods Pro came out with the silcone tips and I thought FINALLY... they've made ear buds that will work for me! WRONG. I bought a pair, tried every tip size, tried the Airpods in the correct ears, opposite ears, right-side up, upside down... every way I could stick the things in my ears and noting worked. They would not get a good seal and stay in my ears no matter what. I'm SO disappointed, but I guess I'm going to try the Sony's.

            I don’t own either of them but he does seem outright biased to a random viewer like me....He is amplifying Sony’s weaknesses and suppressing Airpod’s weaknesses. By the way, I own many apple products and not one sony product yet...yet I am saying this

                If I don't have an iPhone, should I buy airpods pro?
                I want the best sound quality and I know that the airpods pro sound better than Sony's earphones but I don't have an iPhone that's my problem. What can I do? Should I buy Sony's earphones or airpods pro?

                  Great review. Any musician or sound engineer will tell you they want the sound as natural and unprocessed as possible. I don’t need an app or software to try and feed me sound how THEY think it’s supposed to be. I own several headphones. Some are bud style
                  , some are over ear, some are on ear. The ones that play music natural (flat/studio) are always better. This is the same reason I don’t like beats....they PUMP in the bass.

                                                Before even watching this video, I can tell you that he's gonna choose the AirPods Pro and finding the tiniest mistakes with the Sony WF-1000XM3.

                                                EDIT: I was right.

                                                  The eq presets are admittedly terrible. This but spend 5 minutes messing with the sound on one of the custom boards, and you can make these sound as v-shaped or flat as you want. Sony’s app is half the reason I bought the wf xm3s. I don’t know why the app gets so much crap. And I hate the ui color scheme. But it allows for a ton of personalization. I don’t see it as a gimmick at all. And the headphones keep the settings from the app even when you aren’t running the app btw. Seriously if you spent 20 min sifting through the settings on the app and really get the xm3s fine tuned to your needs, this is a fantastic product. If you write the app of like you did... ya the Air Pods Pro are much better.

                                                    Also keep in mind, the wf xm3s are just a shrunk down version of their headphones. So in other words, their designed to sound and function like closed back headphones, and they’re very good at that (in my opinion). Where as the air pods pro, are designed to be a better air pod. They’re very good at that. What I’m saying is both products were designed from a completely different angle, and if you look at them in that light, both nailed their goals. The AirPods Pro main selling point is convenience, the XM3s is customizability, depending which you prioritize will answer which product is better.

                                                  Which one is louder? I have trouble hearing so that’s a big deal for me.

                                                    Only honesty here is just in the title. When you talk about Sony ,you sounded offensive, like a bully who constantly insult someone for being different. According to you, most of youtube reviewers are deaf.

                                                      Mate you are a audiophile snob .. anyone who disagree with your findings are wrong where as you are correct .. your ears are tuned to what a recording should sound like .. unless you were present at each individual recording of every track you listen too on earth would you know how they are intended to sound .. ad i am certain of one thing a $249 pair are not capable of outputting a recording studio sound quality.. so go with the best sounding and that would not be the Pros.

                                                        I cant even touch any of these since they are so close to the wh1000xm3's. I appreciate it is more subtle with these earbuds but I would rather get Galaxy Buds

When I have my Sony's on I hear very little of the hangar noise. You can manually set the noise canceling and manually set your music equalization. The trebles and mid-range are accurate and crisp. The bass is there but it's not Earth shattering like a pair of beats for example. The Sony's come with 8 pairs of inserts. The Sony also works well in phone calls and is compatible with your Android assistant. I have had them for week. I put in 53 hours at work this week. No problems with fit or battery life. The recharge fast inside the case. I never tried the Apple I can only speak for the Sony's. I would say they are worth the $228.00 at Best Buy.

                                                                    Better sound doesn’t win over how it feels in/on your ears.

People are crying cause he didnt say all the nice things about Sony lol. Give me a break. He's a decent reviewer and at the end of the day just giving his personal opinion, no need to be all up in arms about it.
