These are the air pods Pro. It certainly is more pro than the other version. Nonetheless, here they are they're sitting in front of us. They come with the pro price tag. This is two hundred and forty nine dollars. Two hundred fifty dollars you skip the one dollar makes it look like less. What are the differences? Well, obviously, with the pro name, you're expecting to have improved sound quality here by nature of the design. That should be a given. You have interchangeable ear tips, so maybe the one is pre installed is not perfect for you. You swap it out in fact, apparently right within the pairing process through apples, proprietary chip and software there's, even a fit component to the setup process. Of course active noise. Cancelling in here, you get none of that action with the regular air pods and you have the transparency mode which lets you use. The external microphones typically used for noise canceling to hear your surroundings I'm. A big fan of that. Well, are you benefit so they wanted to make it clear on the retail packaging the pro also capable of wireless charging you're not giving that up. Look at this frustration, free packaging, Music, wow it's, a two handed. I wonder if that's intentional, you come with the next hand, so it can't slap on the table and the things go. Flying I'll pull you jobs there. You would wouldn't you. If you were Apple that's, incredible there, they are that's it.
Look. How simple the unboxing experience is: they're protected, they have plastic on there. We put them down for a moment. Oh look, oh holy, so there's the little indicator. Hey your tips are in here and you lift and it's just wow. It matters because it's your initial impression of the product, how much you like it much like another relationship in your life depends on this initial impression. You see there's the handshake that you make with the product. The product is as cool as in boxing it's, not the other way around as well hmmmm. You can see the large ear tips and the small ear tips that, of course means that the medium ear tips are pre installed on the headphones. We have a lightning to USB type c, cable batteries last for a while here, 4.5 hours of listening time on one charge and 24 hours if you're, using the wireless charge case. Of course, a lot of that has to do with how much you utilize the active noise cancelling that's, a battery hog, alright, sweet, okay: we have a comparison when you hold them up like this, you can see it's just ever so slightly taller and almost the same Width so it's not a huge commitment, extra commitment to carry around compared to standard air pods. This feels like a finished product. It feels like something you want to put in your pocket. You just want to slide it in your pocket we'll.
What I think convenience is a major feature with these style of earbuds, more so than say, a high fidelity over ear style. Headphone convenience is a major contributing factor to how you select this, and an Apple is really a step ahead. In my opinion, in that particular department, so – and we pop this one – open and it's a much bigger ear but it's a different look, the stem portion is a bit shorter. As you can see there, the ear bud portion is larger on the Pearl model. Alright, so here's the magic part, the h1 chip at work – you flip it open. It should see it right away. Look at that, oh and it spins around. Oh, I love the fact that I just spent 249 yeah no I'm, not angry at all spent 249 it's. Spinning somebody made it spin all that anger just washes away, look at it's all happening and they look the way they jump around and about they're, so happy noise control press and hold on either air pod to switch between noise cancellation and transparency mode, no secondary app Necessary well have Siri, read out messages without having to unlock your phone. That could be convenience. Ok, we pull them out. We'Re done pull them out. Oh ok cool! So I wanted to show this part off as well. The ear tip fit test. There is an ear tip fit test, so I'm gon na. Try it out. Alright, I would say it's a good fit.
This medium, I would say, is an instant it's already a good fit and also the noise canceling he's active immediately and it's a huge difference when compared to standard air pot. Oh all right, it's, happy that's it. I was right, medium works. You can control your noise control from here, also, noise cancellation, whoo, now I'm gon na try transparency mode. Okay. Now, oh this speeds audio from the microphones inside of the the earbuds typically used for noise cancellation. It feeds it through to you so it's, almost like an amplification of your surroundings and your own voice. So you speak to me right now. Well, so you get high definition yeah. I got you right now. This is a killer feature some tunes here. Okay, Oh louder way, louder. Ah, apples, good apples, gon na make a lot of people happy. This is the approachable improvement in sound it's, the type with its familiar its integrated. You already have the iPhone, so many people have it to begin with. You walk through the store, they say, here's, the pro model give it a shot. It sounds great, you take it home, you have that experience. You never previously would have been in the market for that product because the pre existing version of it is intimidating to some buyers, not to me not to everybody who's watching you guys know what Sony's up to you've seen the other products. You saw the Galaxy buds and so forth, but that's, not the mass market that's, not the retail store window shopper.
This is gon na suck some of the purchases from the current air, pods and ultimately sound wise. This is a whole different story: I'm, not saying they're. The best thing I ever heard in my life, but the combination yeah. I guess you could complain about the price. You could say, look it's not for me it's too much money for sure you could. But you put the transparency over here. You put the package over here like this. I understand the power beats bro. They got good batteries in there, but you look at this package deal you pop this in the pocket. You flip it open, it's, all part of the experience. Well look. This is gon na bring way more people into the noise canceling realm in the first place, but I also hear your argument if you're saying I can do better for 249 yeah, maybe yeah probably, but I think where this whole package comes together is when you look At all the elements, when you look at the case, you look at the h1 chick you look at how your iPhone interacts with the product, all the little icons and animations all the little thing. It adds up to the overall package.
