  1. I’m chuffed, as the Brits say.
    I love my Pros, and my 2s arrive tomorrow.

    EDIT: I suppose color options *would* be cool.

  2. Looking forward to seeing if mic quality has improved at all. I know it’s got the same small stem limitations, but hoping call mic quality goes up even a little bit.

  3. My question is, does transparency mode work on a bike? The second I get a little wind going, my 1st gen APP just wash out and basically turn off transparency until the wind stops. It’s infuriating. It doesn’t even work when I run, and I run slow.

  4. I’m a little disappointed that the sound quality improvement is apparently not huge. I was surprised coming from a pair of Galaxy Buds+ how much of a relative step back the sound quality was on the 1st Gen Airpod Pros — was hoping for a significant improvement with these.

  5. Probably not a worthy upgrade for First gen Pro AirPods user. My friend has a pair and the noise cancelation, sound quality and fit is still the best. It was 200€ on Black Friday last year, will most likely hold out for another few years.

    This is probably marketed at the ones buying their first earbuds or regular AirPod users wanting to upgrade to noise canceling and in-ear buds.

  6. The problem here is nobody is going to buy new $250 headphones if there current $250 headphones are working fine. I mean the noise cancelation is supposedly better, but I can’t try out that feature. There aren’t really “benchmark”. And you can’t just resell headphones like a laptop or phone.

    They upgraded the “find my” feature which I appreciate as a consumer, but is just dumb on Apple’s part because the only way I am dropping another $250 is if I lose my current headphones.

  7. If you want to take them apart you need a Swiss army knife that hopefully has a screw driver in it, some tweezers and add some more thermal compound.
