Default AirPod Pros

Just picked some up last night. If you are like me the other AirPods wouldnt stay in my ears. These have a rubber piece that keeps them in place. Just an FYI.

Yeah, same problem with the normal Air Pods. Was going to wait until the Pro 2 model comes out... not sure when that will be. When talking to people using them you hear everything around them. I guess it doesnít bother the Pro user though haha.

Mine fall out all the time. If you have hairy bear ears they don’t stay in as well. I’ll have to give the pros a try.

Have the pros as well and love them. The noise cancellation alone is worth the upgrade.

Not sure if y'all have tried this but go to Settings - Notifications - Announce Messages with Siri and turn that feature on. It will read your text messages to you through the AirPods. When I'm hunting I will throw one ear pod in and listen to a podcast waiting for the sun to come up and if someone texts you can hear the message without moving to look at the phone.

Yep and can use the hearing aid function in control center to amplify the ambient noise. I can put in one airpod (or both) and hear things that I cannot hear normally.

I use my pros all day everyday. Riding my bike, walking, shooting my bow NOW, doing stuff in the yard. Stays charged for hours. Much better than my Sony noise cancelation I use on flights.

Do you think they compare to Bose noise canceling headphones? Iíd sure like to reduce the crap I carry on the flights.

The over the ear model, no, I don't think so. I travel a lot and the Bose headphones are a necessity for me on flights.

I recently got a pair of the AirPod Pros so I would not have to hold my phone due to elbow trouble and love these things, but do not see them replacing my Bose on flights.

Will these be a good option for cancelling noise and be able to listen to music on a zero turn?

If youíre anything like me, they still fall out. Specially if youíre active or working out.

I bought some of these and now the fit, feel, and function is amazing.

I was a na sayer, as well, saying i would not spend that much money for some little headphones, but, after buying the wife and myself some Pro's,, WOW,, they awesome, i have a smaller ear channel so the regular ones fall i changed out the rubber to the smaller ones and they fit nice and snug. the noise cancelation is bad arse. well worth it..... i might look into the ear hooks as i am still afraid to mow with them and end up losing them

It sounds like I am not the only one that is pretty happy with my AirPods pros. They get used most days and like others have said the noise cancelling is the bomb. I do still have them fall out occasionally. I may have to try the hooks.

Should be. I only have to turn the volume up to about 40% and hear it fine when I'm mowing with a push mower. It's pretty incredible how well it works.

You can adjust this in your settings. Itís really incredible.

With your AirPods Pro in your ear, in Settings, go to Accessibility ó AirPods ó Audio Accessibility Settings. I set up the Custom feature.

Going to try those ear hooks. I like the airpods but they tend to be uncomfortable in my ear. Maybe the ear piece is wrong size - tried all of the sizes included with them - without success on comfort. Will order some alternates on Amazon

I have not use those to compare it to. You adjust volume from your iPhone. I can dial it up literally enough to hear a pin drop.

Wife got me some pros and they are awesome. Standing right next to running 18 wheelers and equipment can hear great with noise cancelling and love the transparency mode super easy to talk to people when they walk up without taking pod out. Also really like how they pause whatever you listening to when you pull one out or it falls out. 5 star

I donít run but for all of my other cardio they stay in fine.

If Iím preparing for a tournament and playing a bunch of early morning rounds of golf Iíll play by myself. Iíll stick one in and listen to music. Never have an issue and really donít even have to adjust them.

I definitely think they are worth the money. WAAAY better than the original AirPods

Just a follow up, Iíve had mine 10 days now and love them. The issue Iíve always had is staying and these fit great with no moving around. It reads txts to me so if Iím walking and I donít want to dig my phone out thatís cool. Looking forward to the noise canceling function on flights.
