For sporty types, Apple’s latest buds are sweat and water resistant to the IPX4 standard. Keep in mind that this rating does not include water sports, nor would your buds be OK if you immersed them completely in water. However, for the occasional rain shower or an intense, sweaty workout, they’ll be just fine.

GadgetGuy’s Take:

The AirPods Pro takes what is great about Apple’s original AirPods and builds on it. The Noise Cancelling and Transparency modes are invaluable to those who rely on their earbuds for commuting, long-haul travel or spend a lot of time making hands-free calls. Audio and ANC quality is very good too.

The AirPods Pro also addresses previous fit issues, are comfortable, and the shorter stalk looks better in our opinion. The price may seem steep at $399 however they’re on par with the likes of Sony’s WF-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones, while being better integrated with Apple’s devices.
