Good question. For one, they’re customizable. Big ears? Small ears? No problem. Whereas previous AirPod iterations subscribed to a one-size-fits-all approach, these state-of-the-art Pros provide 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 previous versions of the iconic buds, Apple AirPods Pro also feature active noise-canceling to block out nearly all ambient and background chatter. "The sound quality is great, the noise-canceling is good as well," wrote a five-star reviewer. "They also pair and turn on automatically when you open the case."
Said another satisfied Amazon shopper, "For noise cancellation, they’re more effective than I thought they would be. They are best at blocking out white noise — bus engines, office sounds, fans, etc. They are good at voices if it's just people talking in a group at a normal volume."
Ease of use for Apple fans
The new earbuds offer a seamless wireless syncing experience with just about any Apple device — including iPhone, iPad, MacBook Air, iMac and more.
But these buds' utility extends way beyond the Appleverse: They'l pair with Android smartphones or tablets and Windows 10 laptops and desktops via Bluetooth.
The Apple AirPods Pro are also a revelation on the battery-life tip — 5.5 hours compared to the previous model’s 3.5 hours. And you can drop them in their included wireless charging case to juice them up for an additional 24 hours of power.
"Battery life is excellent. I haven't charged them more than once in the last month with using them once every few nights for an hour or so," added another Amazon shopper.
At $190 (was $249), 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.

Thousands of protesters have marched on the streets of Sydney, and other Australian cities, against the latest round of COVID-19 lockdown restrictions - despite a surge in cases. Mounted officers and riot police oversaw the COVID-19 protests, which has earlier been designated as an unauthorised protest. New South Wales (NSW) police said while it recognised and supported the right to free speech and peaceful protest, the march was a breach of public health rules, with the force saying: "The priority... is always the safety of the wider community."
A man who joked about not having the Covid vaccine has died after a month-long battle with the virus. Stephen Harmon, a member of the Hillsong megachurch, passed away on Wednesday at the Corona Regional Medical Center outside Los Angeles.

The people administering Covid-19 vaccines are being told to throw away doses as not enough people are coming forward for their first jab. Attempts to use leftover doses on people awaiting second jabs are being frustrated because of the strict adherence to guidance saying they must be administered eight weeks apart, sources said. The Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation recommends an interval of eight to 12 weeks between doses for all the available Covid-19 vaccines as studies sugges
