For Android users, it is up there with much more expensive products like the $399 Sony WF-1000XM3 although that has ANC and Thomas Bartlett rates it 4.6-out-of-5.

For Apple users, the biggest issue I see is that Apple fanboys/girls/LGBTQ+ are devoted to dorky stalks. They are going to eschew anything else. But they would be wrong to ignore the Jabra Elite 75t and its Siri support.

Dorky Airpods
Dorky – many think so!

Apple Aficionado Val Quinn gives the new $399 Apple AirPod Pro 4.8-out-of-5. Val is right – they have ANC (and accordingly have in-ear canal silicon tips), shorter stalks, vastly improved sound courtesy of the Apple H1 chip and seamless iOS paring. Credit where it is due.

But Thomas Bartlett thinks the $349 Powerbeats Pro (4.7-out-of-5) is a better Apple bet for real-life use.

Well, I think these at 5.5g (each) have everything an Android or Apple user could want and at $299 offer better value and performance than standard AirPods. They score 4.6-out-of-5 – let’s give credit where it is due too!
