    Cruel lurks. Really happy with them. Has run both Bose and Sony's on ear for noise reduction. clearly think that these give the same effect.

    Good sound to be inear and wireless. Sits comfortably for shorter listening (4-5 hours Max). Likes the noise reduction that allows one to fall asleep comfortably on air and train journeys with comfortable volume on the music. Also likes the function that lets in sound. For all the picky wannabe audiophiles who favor various different colored headphones / speakers on the market, go please.
    These lures are super good for the purpose of use. This is not a pair of colored dishes over your broken ears that you should listen to your favorite LP by Deep Purple or Metallica from Dackefejden. These are perfect portable plugs that you can easily carry with you for both streaming music and talking phone / conference on the go. NOT for Lars-Åke who stretches and listens to golden hits and demands LP quality with the LP noise that feels like you are squeaking sand between your teeth.
    There are plenty of colored headphones for such a purpose.
    Works as a sound engineer himself and thinks these have a good and sterile sound over the entire frequency register (ie uncoloured sound ie)
    Recommends purchases for those who want to pleasantly listen to music but also make good phone calls.
    The noise reduction and light input function is just over adequate for 85% of the population.
    The other 15% are Lars-Åke and his LP collector club who have self-proclaimed audiophiles and go to the Hifi club with their favorite LP to find their favorite colored sound system which he burns 50 onions on and then listens to the highest volume at home in his tenancy in the south. These chairs have no idea about sound but favor a certain type of colored sound system.
    Simple, the taste is like butt good people. But these lures are well above standard.

    EDIT:
    Please do not listen to the chair below. The person compares large over ear headphones to small in ear headphones. Do not understand what he is trying to achieve as this is not a comparable product. Hence why the person received very many dislikes.
    Please get a life and do not sit and comment on a product you think you "tried" on the Apple Store and then compare with a completely different product.

    - Dyra. Poor fit for some ears, there should be "plops" that come further into the ear. My Jabra 65t is much better. The sound is not that impressive for music.

    Completely okay sound, perfectly okay noise reduction - but perfectly okay is not enough for SEK 2,300.

    Fits quite badly in the ears and falls out of sight regardless of the size of the buds.

    Good sound - have tested Sony's flagship and Bose true wireless and these are clearly better designed and have a good enough ANC - that they work super easily with all your Apple gadgets is basically just a bonus - if I did not have an iPhone I would have these have still been better than Sony's as they press much less against the ear and give the feeling that nothing is even in the ears - thanks to the shape they are also harder to happen to knock away from the ears and still easier to control by clicking on 'stick' vs clean Touch on Sony's bids (and Mao these are better as they are much easier do not happen to click on if you want to "press" the headphones if they have slipped out a bit).

    In short, best in class. You've found the right one
    You are looking for buds, quite simply! buy!

    I mainly compare with my old threaded Bose qc20. It's fantastically nice to go to completely wireless and Apple has squeezed an incredible amount into these little puppets, but I'm still not at all happy.

    AirPods have almost as good noise reduction as Bose but do not sit as well in the ears as the qc20, which means that noise leaks in after a while and you have to poke them again. I also drop them look tight.

    Running telephone calls and teleconferencing in these lures is not recommended. The microphone is incredibly bad, and people at the other end constantly say that they do not hear what is being said.

    I have Android and it is unfortunately impossible to get Google Assistant and voice control to work, and since it is not possible to control the volume via the headphones, you need to do this on the phone.

    I'm anxiously awaiting the Bose Noise Canceling Earbuds 700 when they're now pleased to release them. To the computer, I drive on with Bose or another proper headset instead.

    If you, like me, buy headphones to get good sound, avoid these, screaming sound without a well-defined bass. My ears get tired after 15 minutes! I have headphones for SEK 500 that sound better. If you also have bigger ears than the average 15-year-old, it is almost impossible to get these to fit well, not even comply pillows helped that much.

    But the ANC works well.

    Have a pair of AirPods 1st generation o have hesitated to buy AirPodsPro precisely because of the price, but now it was possible to get them for SEK 2338 instead of SEK 3200 o because I started listening more and more with my old AirPods so it disturbed "thin "sound me more and more. For audiobooks they were ok, but not for music.
    So after reading reviews and tests and looking at You Tube and then found AirPodsPro at a slightly lower price, I decided to test them. Now I do not belong to those who buy lots of expensive headphones and compare, because I simply can not afford it, so this was a big step for me to spend so much money on a pair of in-ear headphones, but wow what a sound! Fantastic noise reduction and the fact that you can use different silicone tops on them (small-medium-large) means that you can adapt them to your ears so they fit perfectly. And it almost does not feel like you have them in your ear. I who have always been a little annoyed with headphones can wear these for several hours without getting annoyed at them.
    That they would be light and paired, I expected when I had a couple of older AirPods, but that they would be so easy to handle and switch between noise reduction and transparent mode so you hear the outside world without it interfering but still hear the music great , pause / play o to be able to jump forward in the tracks. I did not expect that.
    Now I do not have an iPhone but an Android and they work great for it too, but I will not deny that I love being able to hold the case in front of my toad and quickly see how much battery time I have both in the headphones in the case and that I through the toad can access and make fine adjustments on the AirPodsPro, but it's a big plus that they still work perfectly for my Samsung mobile.
    Now I mostly use the transparent mode on them because I have a hard time being completely disconnected from reality and only switch on the noise reduction as the outside world's sound is very disturbing and I love that the sound in the headphones is so good even though I still perceive the outside world. That the sound is so good in this situation and that the headphones are barely noticeable and that they do not make my ears warm or trigger itching - yes I am completely sold on them. Sure they are expensive, but for me they are worth every penny.

    My first AirPods, but have used many other top of the line tricks over the years.

    I would be lying if I said I did not love them at all, but there are some points that I am disappointed / surprised by after all:

    Noice canceling is pretty useless compared to my other tricks. Of course, you do not get up to Bose QC35 (over ear), but other InEs also perform better.
    People who talk around you break through, not so that you actually hear what they are saying but you hear that it sounds.

    Battery life is what I am most disappointed with, but it probably depends more on my user pattern than that they are worse than they promise. Reacts almost every day to the headphones dying in the middle of a call, which means that I have to jump back and forth between left / right to keep at least one handset alive until the ongoing call is complete.
    If you are going to say something positive, the headphones charge surprisingly fast when you put them in the case.

    Provides grades in relation to the standard price.

    + First mating fantastically smooth in the apple ecosystem. They are also added to all other devices that are connected to iCloud (mac, iPad, apple tv, etc.).

    + Noise reduction works perfectly ok.

    + Fits well in the ears

    + Good sound in conversation

    + Flexible automation with presence control (music pauses when you take a nap)

    + fast charging of the headphones

    - Unfortunately, I have to say the sound here. They suffer from the same problem as many cheaper in-ear. Humming bass, absent midrange, too high treble and simply a generally skewed sound image. The question is if there are no better sounds in regular earpods (if regular airpods correspond to these I leave unsaid)

    - the case / charger is a real dirt magnet. Despite the smooth surface, it absorbs all conceivable dirt, much like bathroom porcelain ...

    In short, you can say that the user-friendliness completely screams apple and they thrive fantastically well in their own ecosystem. But it is not in any way a pair of headphones you use for high-resolution music listening, but simply a pair of headphones you have because you want a pair of flexible wireless headphones with NC.

    If you can do without NC and regular earpods fit well in your ears, you would probably be more satisfied with a pair of regular airpods.

    I'm glad I got them with the phone and did not buy them for full price.

    AirPods Pro
    I have for a long time glanced and drooled over these headphones, because I drive with ipad and Iphone, and once I got the opportunity to buy them, the happiness was total. For 2 hours.
    Then Bluetooth started to bother. In my job, I can not always take the headphone out of my ear when I want to pause, because I often have stuff in my hands. When I physically press pause, on either the right or left headphone, the music pauses. So far, so good. Then when I have to start the music, nothing happens. This applies to both Spotify Premium, Youtube and Deezer HiFi.
    Have picked up the phone and pressed play in the app. Then the music starts playing but I hear no sound. The only way to turn on the sound is to skip to the next song (either on the phone or the headphones), then the sound will start. As I said, this does not happen exactly every time, but 7-8 times out of 10.
    This bothered me a lot so I went to the Apple store and got these exchanged for a brand new pair.
    Can it be added that I have Apple Care so maybe that's why it went so easily?
    Thought in my foolishness that it was only a Monday sex. So try the new headphones. Happiness is total for about 2 hours. Same problem with Bluetooth.
    Has for about 2 weeks experienced the same problem with Bluetooth, in addition, it has on two different occasions not been able to change the sound mode. With a slightly longer press on either the right or left headphone, you can choose between off, transparency and noise reduction. On both occasions it did not work no matter how many times I tried. Had also set Siri by a longer press on the left headphone. It did not work either.
    Had to reset the headphones completely by going into Bluetooth on the phone and pressing "forget this device", and set them as brand new to be able to use them again.
    Today, error 3 happens. Worked this morning and when it was time for lunch, I put them in the box for them to be charged. After about 1 hour, the right handset has been charged to 97% and the left to 33%.
    Conclusion after 3 weeks: Since I got my first pair replaced with a brand new pair, I do not think that AirPods pro is better than this. How small is the risk that I got a Monday ex again?
    Of course there is that risk, but it is incredibly small.
    So my advice is: avoid AirPods Pro for now. At least until the amateurs in California know how to release working software.
    Update 2020-07-22. Apple has released an update 2D27.
    Unfortunately, you can still not use play and pause satisfactorily on these SEK 2,500 headphones. It has gotten better but not good. Previously, play / break was disrupted 7-8 times out of 10.
    Now it crashes 3-4 times out of 10.
    So my advice is still: Avoid these, and put the money on a pair that works. Optional headphones over SEK 200 are better than these.

    Really worse base registers on these, compared to AirPods First Generation which I have owned since 2017. Treble and midrange are a bit clearer, but the lack of a strong base makes these much more boring to listen to.

    The rubber mold makes them fall out * much * easier than regular AirPods and EarPods. AirPods Pro for me is not a pleasant experience, because you are subconsciously worried about dropping them all the time.

    The only thing that is really good about AirPods Pro is noise cancellation, and that they work well with Siri on Mac, which AirPods Gen 1 did not succeed.

    Note that problems with Bluetooth are very common with AirPods, although it has gotten a bit better since launch. A good portion of my time is spent restarting Bluetooth / computer, resetting the devices, etc.

    Next time I will buy regular AirPods instead of AirPods Pro.

    Fit seems to be a common problem.
    Anyway for me they are stuck in my ear (with some pressure just over the ear canal)

    ANC is Good but not sovereign, voices and other more distinct sounds are heard relatively clearly. Noise such as dishwasher, traffic and other background noise will disappear.

    The audio is an upgrade from Powerbeats Pro and Airpods (Not Pro). Higher ceiling on treble with more details wider stereo image (somewhat sensitive to how they sit in the ear)
    Smaller bass but tighter, slightly different between when ANC & transparent are on and how much bass you get. Transparent mode, however, is very impressed with very clear voices at long distances. Close to the feeling of not having them. However, the ANC has a slight "cabin pressure" that one can easily get from the ANC kids, better than most but not completely gone.

    The microphone is as good as one could wish, sounds as good if close to better than the one built into the iPhone 11.

    The battery is good, can they be recharged many times via "case"?

    Details I really like about these:
    They are small.

    They have a grill in the silicone top itself which prevents the wax from
    collects o the grill on the headset and costs only ≈ 90-100 SEK

    Very small charging case which makes them a good fit in the "coin pocket" so they are easy to put away.

    Good price for what you get ≈2400 SEK

    Very good range, can walk around the house without any problems with the phone in a room.

    Bad things:

    Does not fit me perfectly but my doing will probably "break in"

    The sound can be muted in one ear in a transparent position when they hear child screams, just as you get a lid for the ear

    Sometimes they need to be adjusted a bit in how they sit in the ear, however this is expected as they do not have a jumper like Powerbeats Pro

    Summary: They are very good at a lot but not the best at everything.

    FINALLY!

    I've finally found out right after testing both Bose NC 700, Bose Soundsport Free, Libratone Track Air + and Powerbeats Pro.

    Sure, they're awfully expensive. If you read the specifications, the price is not justified either. They are a typical example of hyped apple product.

    Despite this, I dare to say that they are actually reasonably priced and, to me, the clear best choice of the aforementioned kids.

    Clearly the most comfortable of these. Good sound. Sickly flexible with iPhone and iPad Pro (of course).

    Noise reduction is good. Not near a pair of earphones, but definitely in class with for example Libratone.

    The sound quality is very good for being a pair of wireless in-ear headphones. In my opinion better than both Bose and Libratones in ear. More neutral than Powerbeats Pro (as these have a slightly exaggerated bass).

    If you can only melt the ohmult high price, it is a clearly sensible investment.

    Bought these when I wanted good noise reduction in a (very) small format. Previously, I used bose quit comfort 35, which has now been replaced by airpods pro. The idea was mainly to have them in the gym but now I use them for several hours every day.

    After 4 months I can see ...

    advantages:
    1. Very small / easy to bring.
    2. Good sounds, like my bosses.
    3. Good noise reduction.
    4. Works well during calls.
    5. Remains in the ear regardless of activity.
    6. Wireless charging on the case.

    Cons:
    1. Buggiga. Sometimes problems with coupling or strange noise. Switches over after a restart Occurs maybe once a week.
    2. Short battery life (I use them all day so it becomes a problem that they can't handle a whole day like my bose could, for example).
    3. Expensive (3100 SEK when I bought 🙃).
    4. Got hurt in the ears at the beginning. They scuffed. This has gone over but they are getting a little uncomfortable after a few hours now.

    Conclusion:
    Really good kids. The combination of just a small form factor and good noise reduction appealed to me. The price was expensive but on the other hand I use them several hours every day.

    Like Apple. But less and less. The microphone on these headphones captures all the unwanted sound around and amplifies it during calls. Miserable is diplomatically expressed. Have a pair of Bose 700 and they have a good mix. Yes they are over ear ... Sick bad microphone. Sounds ok, nothing special.

    Good sound though:

    Bought these when my Airpods got short battery life after 2 years of heavy use, have run in the rain and snowstorm and they have been super and fit well in my ears.
    The sound quality of Airpods Pro is superior to Airpods if you activate nc. But talking to someone feels awkward and can be done in any way, even when you are turned off by nc.

    But the problem I got after less than 1 month of use is that it starts to crack when talking in them or listening to some music such as Billie Ellis. Ill disruptive.
    Apple says they can send new ones to see reserve costs of about 2000: - & which I get back when I got the new one and at the same time sent the defective back.

    At first I thought I would, but then I ran on this article https://www.reddit.com/r/airpods/comments/ggygmy/why_airpods_pro_are_failing_with_scratching/

    So now I buy a pair of Bose QC35II for ns and a couple of Airpods for phone calls / running.

    The first time Apple disappointed me.

    Bought these for a test only. And should I describe these guys they are so incredibly good, but at the same time so incredibly bad.

    This is by far the most comfortable in ear headphones I've had. ANC among the best I've heard on in ear. Functionality is 10/10, never had a couple of smarter kids. So what's the error?

    Unfortunately, these sound nothing strange at all. For almost SEK 3000 I dare to say that there is very "meh" feeling in the sound. It works and works, but thats it.

    These are unfortunately a pair of headphones, and the basic function is to sound and unfortunately they do not do so well. Had the sound been given a boost, these would have been the world's best headphones, regardless of category. But now they have to settle for a strong 3a from me.

    Hyper noise canceling. Removes noise but most of the time you just hear quieter.
    Battery life about 4 hours, ok but no more.
    Ok sound to music, nothing strange.
    A bit tricky to pair sometimes. Sometimes it drops a headset and then you have to put them back in the case and start over.
    Completely useless to use as a headset if it is not very quiet all around and you talk loudly. To talk on a bus or train, for example, is to forget when one must speak so loudly that it disturbs the other to hear.

    Sum sum, not worth the price.

    Have had AirPods since the beginning and have loved them since day one. The sound was really a joke, but it was weighed down by a sickly smooth solution ..

    Now as I write this I listen to my AirPods PRO and it is actually incredible what it sounds good. Then I mean everything, microphone, noise reduction, music, audiobooks, yes everything. Is so crazy happy and my Sennheiser Momentum Wireless ends up on the shelf.

    My lowest rating on an Apple product ever. Used my handsets for over two months and the fit of the pillows lowers the whole experience to an annoyance. Sound, technology, etc. are top notch in Apple, but the pillows are designed to only work with Apple Airpods pro which is understandable, but they are designed in a material and surface layer that makes them ALL too smooth with time so they slip out of the ear when used. Tested all sizes included and they failed with what Sennheiser solved 20 years ago: make pillows in a material that keeps them in place in the ears.

    All right. Is not the best ergonomics, slips out of the ears again, and can be a little painful to have in the ears for a long time. The iPhone rings and you put the plugs in it is not always they are connected, so not so seamlessly it is advertised with

    Used latest generation Apple in-ear headphones which were perfect for me with small earbud size. AirPods Pro slides out when I talk to size small, with size medium it happens a bit, but is also more uncomfortable to wear

    Noise cancellation is better than Bose QC25 on aircraft

    Have had airpods for a couple of years and been very pleased. Sure it is good with ANC but the technical quality and function is not so good and what one expects. Many times they do not feel that they have been inserted into the ear which is very annoying. Apple can't solve the problem and can't say what's wrong after a couple of months of support contact. Quite costly for a couple of nods that cost double what airpods cost. If you do not need ANC buy any other handsets.

    Still not working and Apple's support is like a deaf hen with memory loss.

    Nothing negative to say after about 2 weeks of use.

    Think the sound is well balanced and good. Right with bass and clear, open sound.

    They sit comfortably in my ears.

    Likes the feature that the handsets pause if you unplug one and continue automatically when you put it in your ear again, without having to press the button.

    Nice battery info on the iPhone when you open the case.

    No problems with the connection to the phone. No drop outs.

    They are expensive and I have not compared to other cheaper nuggets so I can not say if they are worse or better than cheaper alternatives. But if you have an IPhone then it is a very nice and smooth user experience iaf.

    Significantly better sound and shortcuts compared to AirPods 2nd Gen. Surprisingly good Active Noise Cancellation in terms of the small format of the handsets - though not as good ANC as the over-ear-Bose / Sony handsets. Minus for the high price, that the battery capacity learns to decrease without the possibility of correction and that it is not possible to control the volume through quick commands on the handsets. But these minuses do not lead to lower ratings as it is a fantastic product.

    Have tested and owned different headphones over the years so here's my view of Airpods Pro so far. I fully understand that you can get better sound quality for your money.

    It should be mentioned that I use the handsets with Android phone and the Assistant Trigger app to get functionality that was otherwise missing (to see battery values, use google assistant and use auto start / stop function when switching on and off the handsets).

    Positively:

    + Good noice canceling
    + Stylish and neat case
    + Good sound quality (Tip: change EQ in Spotify, yes the bass increased slightly and put on Rock mode)
    + Comfort
    + The agility, being able to carry them in their pockets.
    + IPX4 water resistance
    + Wireless charging for the case

    neutral:

    + - Battery life, quite ok but would have liked to see someone / some more hours with NC on.
    + - The lack of included lightning cable in the package.

    negative:

    - No USB-C connection for charging the case, still lightning.
    - Not that Apple offers battery replacement of the handsets at a cost. (For now)
    - Rope-sensitive case says people in reviews (will get Spigen tough armor, so no big deal)
    - The price

    Update: 24 / 1-20 - I don't get left handed to sit after a while, it slowly creeps out of my ear until it falls out, regardless of the size of the silicone plugs I have. On the right ear the handset sits well, but not the left, which shows how individual the fit is for people's ears.

    What I realize in retrospect is my mistake of shopping from a webshop that does not accept returns of in-ear nuggets. So now I sit here with a couple of Airpods that I wish to return, but not able to. Understand that it is about body-intensive products and hygiene, but it gets silly when you buy a pair of headphones that cost SEK 3100 and do not prove to fit after testing them once.

    So a tip for you who are going to buy Airpods pro, is to TESTA the handsets at eg Apple-store. And should you shop at a webshop, make sure they receive returns of in-ear nuggets if they don't fit well. (I bought from 24.se)

    Now I will sell these on and wait until more noice-canceling in-ear lurks come out on the market. For now, yes, use my Sony WH-H900N.

    I chose between these and a pair of Sony wh-1000xm3 (over-ear), the choice ultimately fell on the in-ear headphones.
    (I had tested a buddy wh-1000xm3 before deciding, I was very impressed with these kids and I don't think anyone will be disappointed with a couple like that either).
    -
    Airpods Pro is a bit different from other in-ear headphones that I have tried because they are ventilated, ie you get no "ear lock" feeling from them. It is certainly nice to release that feeling, but at first it does not feel like the headphones are sitting properly, you expect lid in the ears simply.
    When you find the right size of the rubber plugs, they feel very comfortable (unless you are unlucky and none of the 3 supplied sizes fit, I guess).
    The rubber plugs seem to be a bit small compared to other in-ear headphones I've had, normally I end up in medium size but I needed to switch to the large plugs on Airpods Pro, may be good to know if you normally have the large plugs.
    Sound-wise they sound fantastic, much better than cheaper ones. I am not an audio file and have not tested other expensive in-ear headphones, but as I wrote I have tried the Sony wh-1000xm3 - Airpods Pro is not far from that experience if you ask me. Both sound quality and noise canceling.
    What matters to me is actually everything else around. The product really breathes quality and works seamlessly on an iPhone (of course). It is easy to switch devices eg from iPhone to iPad, it takes a few seconds. The handsets have no physical button but the touch button really feels like it through, what I understand, an audio click. If you open the door on the case, you get battery status on the case and look through a window on the phone.
    The cord that comes with the device is the same as the one that comes with the iPhone 11, ie USB-C to Lightning.
    All in all, I can really recommend Airpods Pro to all iPhone owners :)
    Addition:
    As this is being written, other reviewers have commented on a firmware update that was sabotaging noise canceling. As of this writing, this update has been withdrawn and noise canceling works again.

    Will be worse ANC after last update 2c54. The test for good sealing worked the first time but now after 1 month of use I do not get good sealing anymore so the sound picture has deteriorated! On the positive side, the phone calls themselves work great!

    Previously had Airpods gene 1 and a pair of Bose QC 35 II.
    Bought these and sold quickly after my Bose. There is simply no reason to keep them, when you get almost as good (in some cases better) ANC without having to have a couple of car tires on your head.
    Awesome sound for my taste and as I said, really nice ANC.

    The only minus is that after a while with the handsets I feel that the right drops the seal.
    Switched to the smallest size and since then it has been much better.
    Let's see if you might buy some alternative third party puppies in the future.

    Updates after 3 months use: started to get some connection problems. It is difficult to connect to the phone despite several attempts.

    The fit is not optimal for me in M, earlier airpods sat well.

    Works over expectation.
    Plus: the noise reduction
    Minus: the fit medium for large and small for small.
    The sound in the higher notes

    Update: ANC destroyed after last software. You hear people talking at 20 meters.

    AMAZING!

    Sits incredibly well right out of the box (M size).

    Enjoy the noise reduction + transparent sound.

    The sound quite ok for me. Clear treble and decent bass.

    My initial impression of these kids was very good. The build quality feels good, small and agile in the format, pairs very smoothly with the iPhone. Just open the case and click connect on the box that pops up in the iPhone. They turn on themselves when they feel they are in their ears. Smoothly charged "automatically" when in the case. So far so good.
    Then came the problems that became a dealbreaker for me:

    They do not remain in my ears if I move my head at all or eg. smiles. Then they go out a bit and lots of sound leaks in from the outside and the sound, especially the bass, gets very bad. For a month I have tried all the sizes of the "earplugs" that come with it but there will be no major difference.
    Using these when I walk, or even worse when I exercise, is completely out of the question. They go out all the time.
    Another big thing that surprised me is that the bass tones from the outside are often reinforced by the headphones. If I understand it correctly the ANC is not always at max but it is an automatic adjustment. It seems that this often bugs out such bass tones, e.g. from passing Volvo 740 with sawn-off exhaust pipes, instead of being dampened.
    I also hear the body's own sounds much more in these headphones than for example. my old Bose QC 35.

    So my only use now for these kids is when I'm sitting still and commuting by bus / train. They are then easy to carry in your pocket and easy to use and put back. Nice to get rid of cords.

    Still, I can't recommend a purchase, especially considering the price of SEK 3200. I return to my Bose QC35 in any case except when possible. when I sit completely still at e.g. commuting.

    they do it again. be completely against these from the beginning when it is in ear lurks which I can not have when I get so greedy. but got to test a pair and they sat so well in my ears so I ordered a pair that night.

    and I can only say I am super happy with how they sit in the ears the sound becomes very good and full. listens to some podcasts and lots of music and thinks the sound is really good considering how small they are
