AirPods couldn’t be more popular. But now Apple is making a case (pun intended) for the new-and-improved Apple AirPods Pro. Are they worth the upgrade? We say yes.
Marked down to $220 (originally $250) at Verizon Wireless for a limited time, this is a new price drop and the lowest we’ve ever seen—you won’t even find this deal at Amazon, Walmart or Best Buy. (Verizon Communications, Inc. is the parent company of Verizon Wireless and Yahoo Life.)
These wireless earbuds rarely go on sale so get ’em while you can.
How do the AirPods Pro compare to previous models?
For one, they’re customizable. Big ears? Small ears? No problem. Whereas the regular AirPods subscribe to a one-size-fits-all approach, Apple provides a special “Ear Tip Fit Test” so you can learn which size is best for you and your unique ear shape. Apple also redesigned these buds with a silicone tip for a comfy fit so they’ll feel better in your ear—and won’t slip out halfway through a workout.
Unlike the previous earbuds, Apple AirPods Pro also feature active noise-canceling to block out nearly all ambient and background chatter so you can focus on your favorite music and podcasts.
“Sound and call quality are amazing; calls are clear as day,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “The noise cancelation really helps while around others.”
Says another fan: “The sound cancelation is great—I used them while cutting the grass.”
Ease of use for Apple fans
The new earbuds offer a seamless wireless syncing experience with just about any other Apple device, including iPhone, iPad, MacBook Air, iMac, and more. “They fit perfectly and work extremely well with the iPhone,” says a satisfied shopper.
They also pair with Android smartphones or tablets and Windows 10 laptops and desktops via Bluetooth.
The AirPods Pro have a longer battery life on a single charge—5.5 hours compared to the previous model’s 3.5 hours. So if you don’t want to keep juicing up throughout the day, go with the Pro. “I rarely have to charge them and the Bluetooth rarely gives me any issues,” said a shopper.
The new Apple AirPods Pro are a big step up in audio quality. And with the bells and whistles that the entry-level AirPods just don’t have, we think they’re well worth the upgrade.
