        I’ve been waiting for this for a while now
        I kept my lightning to 3.5mm dongle because I hated the regular AirPods and EarPods
        After buying the AirPods pro the first day they came out, I haven’t regretted purchasing them.

                Not to be critical. But am I the only one that feels the reviewers seems to be like reading this review. And it’s super obvious. I feel like the narration is way off

                        The simple review for the AirPods Pro is they check every box and work as advertised. ANC, transparency mode, great call quality, good battery life, good sound quality, long Bluetooth range, easy to connect, sweat resistant, no latency on videos, sealed tips make them comfortable to wear, and a tiny case that fits in your jeans coin pocket. There are better sounding earbuds but they can't check every box like AirPods Pro and they all have a glaring flaw that AirPods don't have...this includes Sony, Jabra, Samsung, and JBL.

                          @MTK Knight the Sony ANC earbuds aren't sweat proof, have a huge charging case, and they are not sweat proof. All glaring flaws that AirPods Pro don't have. Jabra earbuds have the left ear connection issues and there is latency with video playback...2 flaws the Pro's don't have. Samsung earbuds have terrible mics for phone calls and they lose connection occasionally when your phone is carried in the back pocket...flaws the Pro's don't have. Any more questions?

                                It’s like someone forced him to do this after he downed three shots of NyQuil. Who tf actually talks like that?

                                The controls work great for me. 1sr time almost all the time. With the old airpods I had to tap 3 times just to make sure it registered 2 every time.

                                      Disagree. These are awesome if you wanna stay in the Apple ecosystem and own an iPhone. They are far from great and for $250 they need to be better.

                                            pressing the flat control surface can pull out the headphones. I noticed if place your pointer finger on the side of the headphone and then use your thumb and middle finger to squeeze the flat surface it doesn't fall out.

                                                Try to restart the airpod pros by placing both buds in the charging case with the lid up, hold the sync button until it turns amber and white. Hopefully that fixes your issue.

                                                Best review of the AirPod(s) Pro to date. In-depth, showed true everyday usage cases, limitations, and advantages. The host was a nice change from the usual Engadget crowd as well. The chief complaint is the title; it left a dangling statement("hang with the best") without being explicitly backed in the actual review. Just wish the Pro's would allow for two, or more, BT host connections simultaneously. I.E. like many of its competitors do.

                                                Companies need to figure out how to make these wireless earbuds last more than 3 years. The tiny batteries inside these things have a relatively short shelf life and they’re non replaceable.
                                                It’s not just an Apple problem but most wireless earbuds don’t have replaceable batteries, so these earbuds are essentially 200-300 dollar disposable devices that have a short shelf life. This is the biggest advantage of wired headphones, a good pair of wired headphones will last decades, but you’ll be very lucky if the battery in these earbuds last five years.

                                                  I've gone through dozen or more wireless ear buds with wired connection between and without. They're not that bad in terms of holding their charge.
                                                  Oldest out of all of them is the jaybirds x2 and it's still going strong. Even the cheap anker set that i bought to play golf with despite not cared for properly sitting in a golfbag, it still works well today.

                                                  1) his dialect
                                                  2) his attire
                                                  3) the cut of his jib
                                                  4) my preconceived stereotypes of guys that know their way around diesel engines

                                                      Based on what criteria does it hang with the best? Audio quality? ANC?

                                                        I own the Sony anc headphones and the AirPod pro is almost as good.

                                                        I have earbuds from Sony, Jabra, JBL, and Samsung...the AirPods Pro are the best overall with the fewest flaws or comprimises. Sound quality is subjective and depends on how earbuds fit your ears. Remember this...earbuds are speakers and earbuds are tiny speakers. No matter what any tech reviews tries to claim...they all only get so loud and have limits on the bass they can output. AirPods Pro sound good for music and podcasts.

                                                        😂😂 Guys I just uploaded a review of some fake 1:1 airpods pro replicas. And I'm telling you they look identical, I couldn't tell them apart. If you're feeling lucky I'm also giving away a few pairs to some lucky subsribers😊
