    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?

    I was doing something really rare when watching this very entertaining review of my already much loved AirPods Pro... Actually enjoying everything, UNTIL! You say that there is no “long press” to turn off noise from & transparency modes... Yes there is because I’ve been using it from day one of having my AirPods Pro! I am not using stem squeeze to action Siri, I use all 3 long squeeze gestures to cycle through off, noise cancellation, transparency. I am really disappointed that you gave me a reason to award a black mark against what was until you made that misstatement a really good & entertaining review. Despite that faux pas I still will give this review 9/10. I will finish by saying the guy with the fair hair and beard was f*cking HOTTTT! 😂🏳️‍🌈 (now do the decent thing and at least acknowledge the time I have taken to compose this response 2 ur review. And possibly send me that hotttt guy’s email... 😂 👱🏻‍♂️👅🧔🔥🔥🔥) Thorvald (Norwegian, pronounced Tourval...)

    People who often have dirty ears, shouldn't buy that type of BT-headphones which penetrate the ear-tunnel. You'll press your earwax back into in the ear. That's why I like the AirPods 1 / 2 better.

    Apple keeps taking Samsung's style, it just goes to show samsung is better. And two more things, Samsung is not Android, it is merely in powered for PHONES ONLY. Apple has taken our Samsung Design i said this first ik, but we do it better and you just dont understand we do anything better! Phones= Better (S9, S10, Coming soon, S11) ; Camera = Surperior, Battery= better, Design=better, and im sorry to say apple users but Bixby Is So So much better than Siri. Lets not forget Price. Price= AWESOME (Samsung's Christmas deal for phones is currently $289.99 obviously rises with customization, but hey at least we're not so expensive that CLONES were created WITHOUT WIFI like you dont understand apple is blind-sighting you (Apple users) any way I'm done @ me if you want hate if you want idc)

    I wonder if these will stay put while riding 🤔
    Would surely be a pisser losing one of them on the highway. The hooked style are great for mapping directions during riding .

    I like the fact that it has transparency mode so I can wear them at work and actually hear if people are trying to get my attention and when I go on lunch I can turn on the noise cancellation so I don’t have to hear those mofos 😂

      Their earbuds seems to be much more comfortable and secure than Sony's, or worse Apple's.

    the original air pods were rushed to market as an unfinished compromise The sound quality is meh and they moved around in the ear and felt like they were going to fall out of my ear. I gifted them to someone for their birthday.

    Linus Tech Tips I’ve been putting my AirPods in the little “pocket watch” pocket since I got them in 2017, and when I got gen 2, and when I got the Pros. Glad you figured it out! I was hoping a TheXvidr would point it out! Thanks man 😆😁

    I wouldn't ever replace my Sony WF1000xm3 with the Airpods "pro". The Sony sound way better and now they updated the firmware and you can adjust the VOLUME settings on either side.
