  1. You missed one feature: They’re IPX4 water resistant. I believe that should make them good for workouts, too.
    Great video!

  2. My Sony Walkman NWZ-A845 had ANC with included ANC buds like 8 years ago. Yeah fine this is a better design than those but stop pretending that suddenly Apple innovated… They're just good in-ears. Kinda-magical and those terms are just a bit of a bullshit.

  3. How are they for conference calls or making outbound calls? I’m looking for clarity in voice quality. Currently using the Sennheiser MB 660 which are decent but still on the hunt for the best wireless headphones. “Best” being call quality as #1 priority.


  4. "Apple does it better" not for about 10 years lol when they were at the forefront of innovative products . Apple is a load of overpriced crap now mate think I will pass

  5. completely unrelated to the video but you should start making LTT computer cases using all the new machinery and sell it on the store (just watched the most powerful Xbox video) 👌

  6. Apple probably just went: these EarPods are missing something…

    Their buyers: a way to find where they are if you loose them

    Apple: I know! They need silicon ear buds and be sound proof and they will be 1.5x more expensive.

  7. Linus,

    Should I get an i5 9500 with gtx 1650 or ryzen 5 2300 with rx 570? You're probably not going to answer, but someone in the community maybe?

  8. Everytime i see hear a apple product or Apple review. I picture Apple laughing at you while killing puppies in the backroom

  9. Just a heads up:
    Don't look at this review as an unbiased one.
    In fact, you might wanna think the opposite.

    If you go out of your way to BUY the Airpods Pro through the links in the description, then Linus Media Group will get PAYED for it.


  10. Sony WF-1000XM3 are still noticeably better. Better sound quality and ANC(it also uses inner and outer microphones). It has better battery life even with ANC on compared to off on the Airpods pro. It's less expensive. It supports way more and better bluetooth audio transmission formats such as LDAC and APT-X. Even though the buds and case are larger, the case is still pocketable just like the Airpods Pro case and the buds cut a flatter profile on your ear. This makes sleeping or laying your head on another surface while wearing them much more comfortable. I applaud apple's attempt here and they are way better than the original airpods(which were god awful for someone who cares about sound in the slightest), but they are definitely playing catch up compared to Sony, Cambridge Audio, and B&O. In typical Apple fashion, they have made a solid overall product that isn't the best at anything or even close to the best overall, but they price it as if it was. If you have an Iphone, the Pros are a great option just for some of the software based creature comforts. If you don't, they are honestly a complete waste of money compared to the Sony WF-1000XM3, the Cambridge Audio Melomania 1, and the B&O Beoplay E8. Hec, even with an Iphone, each of these are either straight up better(1000xm3) or simply better for the money.

  11. They make products that are at best on par with competition one or two years later than anyone. The only thing the make better are headlines

  12. The AirPods are the best choice , the competitors are all subpar , even Bose which sounds great doesn’t fit right
