All I have to say is that they are fantastic!

I had horrible luck with the original AirPods because they kept falling off, but with the Pros they are way better, they stay in the ear.

The Noise cancelling is superb, the transparency mode is solid.

I’m sure in few months these will drop to $200.
Maybe for Black Friday they will be discounted.

AppleCare is a must.

Im hesitant to spend that on wireless earbuds. I bought a cheap pair a month ago on a amazon lightning deal. Nothing special, but for what I paid they did enough.

Lost one in the first week. lol

Been using Air Pods since they came out. Good quality and while the hear through feature might be desirable, I don't like the larger case. I have a good system now for carrying my airpods and iphone. The Airpods Pro's case won't fit in the leather belt pouch I like.

How do you all carry your airpods when not using them?

Considering I have been using a $25 pair of Sony in-Ear headphones from 2005 which have finally given up the ghost (they won't stay in my ear anymore) I find the idea of the AirPods Pro intriguing but rather expensive to try out. I guess the only good point would be "the Apple take it back for any reason in 14 days" return policy if I didn't like the sound or the fitment.

I read they have an expects lifespan of only 18 months. That deters me from trying them.

My AirPods had a life expectancy of 1 day since I forgot that they were in my pocket and washed them. 18 months is pretty good.

Used my Apple AirPodsPro on my flight to Germany. Was impressed with the noise cancelling. Worked great. But after a few hours my ears felt a bit sore. I swapped to my Bose QC20 Noise cancelling in-ear buds for a change. Both headphones work about the same with noise cancelling. The key with the APP is making sure I turn the ear bud a bit, to get a good seal. But really for airplane jet noise, I was pretty pleased.

Finally picked some pros up. Had to do a reset. Could not get them to work with phone calls (evidently happens a lot). All fine now. Really comfortable and the different noise modes are nice.

So you still like the pros?

Yes. I use them every time I mow the lawn. They are pretty effective and that mower is pretty loud.

I use my normal AirPods for when I ride my bike (I listen to audiobooks). I could use the pro's in transparent mode, but I feel like the originals fit better for exercise.
