We’ve stepped into summer and all the great outdoor weather that comes with it, which means it’s time for you to finally get those Apple AirPods Pro you were looking at. Another reason to make this move right now: They dropped to $ 180 – nearly $ 70 off – on Amazon.

Active noise cancellation allows you to fully immerse yourself in music, podcasts, or whatever makes you happy. Get up to 24 hours of listening on one charge. In addition, this model is waterproof and sweat resistant.
How do AirPods Pro compare to previous models?
Good question. For one, they are customizable. Big ears? Small ears? No problem. While previous AirPod iterations have signed up for a one-size-fits-all approach, these cutting-edge professionals provide a special “Ear Tip Fit Test” so you can find out which size is best for you and your shape single ear.
Apple has also redesigned these gems with a silicone tip for a comfortable fit, so they’ll feel better in the ear and won’t slip off mid-workout.
Unlike previous versions of the iconic gems, the AirPods Pro feature active noise cancellation to block out almost all ambient and background chatter. “Sound quality is great, noise cancellation is good too,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “They pair and turn on automatically even when the case is opened.”
Another satisfied Amazon buyer said, “For noise cancellation, they’re more effective than I thought. They’re best at blocking out white noise – bus engines, office sounds, fans, etc. They’re good with voices if it’s just people talking in groups at a normal volume. “
“AirPods have never been better. These little things pack … a punch!” wrote a happy Amazon customer. “The audio quality is insane.”
Another fan was thrilled with all the features you get with these earbuds. “These are by far the best I’ve used so far, due to the size and also the feature set,” they wrote. “What upsets me and drives me crazy is the spatial feature. I started looking around after I started listening to an audiobook with that feature on. It is as if the narrator is behind and all around. Spooky … This is a leap in quality compared to other products. “
Ease of use for Apple lovers
The new earbuds offer a seamless wireless sync experience with almost any Apple device, including iPhone, iPad, MacBook, iMac, and more.
But the usefulness of these gems extends far beyond the Appleverse – they’ll also pair with Android smartphones or tablets and Windows 10 laptops and desktops via Bluetooth.
The AirPods Pro are also a revelation in the battery life department: 5.5 hours compared to 3.5 hours on the previous model. And you can leave them in the included wireless charging case to recharge them for another 24 hours of battery life.
“Battery life is excellent. I haven’t charged them more than once in the last month using them once every few nights for about an hour,” added another Amazon buyer.
“Can I give these 10 stars?” another fan said. “The quality of the audio and microphone is amazing. They turn on automatically when you put them in your ears; even if it’s in the middle of the conversation they connect and the audio switches automatically. I couldn’t be happier with these.”
Apple’s AirPods Pro are a big step forward in audio quality. And with the bells and whistles that entry-level AirPods simply don’t have, we think it’s worth it.
