yo what's up guys Sam here it's by 8 o'clock in my timezone I've been out all day testing err pause bro because I have them at hand look at this new design isn't this what is this crazy because these are so pricey at 250 I wanted to compare them to something a lot more comparable earpods to that you can get on Amazon right now link down below for about a hundred and forty dollars how it does the sound compare how does it feel when they're actually sitting in your ears so I went to a Starbucks I tested out noise cancellation I tested out running with

Them and I'm really excited to show you guys my phone so drop a like if you're excited for this video hit subscribe for more what's going gets done alright so I just finished up a number of listening sessions with air pods to an airport pro like I spent some serious time at listening to air pods to and then switching air pods Pro and then another song on air buds to airports Pro different genres different vocalists and here's what I found air pods – anti our pods Pro both have a really good audio quality and whether or not you pick up air pods – for a lot less or ear pods

Pro for a lot more I think you're gonna be really happy with the sound I think the sound quality is very comparable because they both sound good however air pods Pro is different in a couple of key ways and for me they're not necessarily good things so air pods Pro come through much sharper and there's a greater separation between your highs your cymbals your mid your vocals and your lows your bass notes when I put an air pods Pro it's like I could almost draw a map of what I'm seeing in front of me like I could pinpoint oh the highs are up here the

Mids are here the lows you okay and that just popped up here if there's a bar things are constantly pushing through that and it's more of an in-your-face sound with that you also get some more siblings for vocals or for symbols when you're getting those high like sounds they sort of come through as piercing biting with earbuds to the sound quality is not as wide I would say that range is a bit more compressed so that it's not as easy to say oh I'm hearing these in these exact positions and I could map it out but it's a much more tame a much more subtle sound

Overall I actually prefer the sound of air pods – based off this initial test you know three or four songs listening through really focusing on what I'm hearing but if you like the sound of home pod if you like sharper bigger range then I think you're gonna like airpot SPRO better it just depends on what you like because audio is super subjective it's why it's very hard to put into words what you're hearing it's just one might be for you and one might not be at the same time even if you're like me and you don't love that super sharp sound it's

Like you're not gonna like your fonts Pro it still sounds good now you do get some big benefits with air upon its proof which you can't get in any capacity on air pods – we're talking about noise cancellation I've put those things in I started talking is a bit disorienting something that's blowing my mind is I try to active noise cancellation and it always makes you feel weird it still makes me feel weird now if you're somebody who likes noise cancellation it's really good like there's people playing basketball and about sitting the gym and the only thing

I can hear it was like the softest tap of the ball and they're you know a few hundred feet away from me so you could still hear some things but when you turn upon I I thought I detached from reality for a second like you're just in your own little zone which is how noise cancelling works it's just the first time I've ever heard on the air pots and it's kind of weird that I was able to create that just using wireless earbuds and they're super small they're not big without bulky they don't look like or something else that they're not trying to be for all the features that go has

Any notes it's pretty well done surprisingly the in-ear part of ear pods Pro wasn't bothering me as much as in-ear headphones have bothered me in the past air pots do or more hard plastic sometimes they can hurt your ears of their and they're for a super long time ear pods Pro were extremely comfortable definitely more comfortable than air pods – especially if you're gonna be doing an extended listening session Apple did do a really great job with these sides of the ear tips and making them feel just right I have never worn a pair of in-ear headphones more

Comfortable than air pods pro alright guys so I just got done with a couple laps on the track trying out both ear pods Pro and with normal ear pods – and Bose stated about the same if airports do haven't work for you though again and they're definitely worth a try because these little inserts so they're much more likely to stay in your ear and running super comfortable everyone so everybody start to hear my ears just because you know they're hard plastic but the little soft rubbery piece feels really nice in it it seems to stay in your ear super well so to make sure

These are actually correct apple offers three different tip in your sizes and if you head over to your Bluetooth settings and tap on your air pods Pro there's an ear tip fit test right here so this is gonna play some things to make sure that the audio quality and noise cancellation will be at maximum effectiveness all right so it says is a good seal on both it played a royalty-free track which I found really funny actively the ear fit test makes sure that you're using the right tip small medium or large to ensure you get the highest quality sound and that there is a barrier between your

Eardrum and the outside world that's how noise cancellation can work so well but possibly there's another effect even with noise cancellation turned off you hear less around you than with air pods – because it's not just hard plastic in there anymore so Apple added transparency mode just two air pods pro that allow you to get closer to what things sounded like with air pods – and they actually did a really good job it uses the mics on your air pods to boost the sound around you as if there wasn't that physical barrier between your ear and the outside world and it works

Incredibly well it sounds ever so slightly artificial just because it is using like an air pods mic and not your actual ears but it's pretty close I think it's the best that Apple can do here so what else does air pods Pro have that air pods – does not have we've talked about sound quality we've talked about the feel but what about water assistance I've actually washed air pots before air pods one specifically and I thought they were done amazingly they went through the wash twice and were completely fine like a hundred percent fine which is insane to me air pods Pro

Are actually rated for splashes of water so this is pretty amazing air pods Pro came out today and what are the chances it's raining lightly in my area which is like the perfect use case scenario for that so I don't have to worry about the batteries getting fried like water leaking into the speaker's it's actually a really fantastic that they have the water assistance now again small splashes of water so this is a torrential downpour I'm not in the middle of our I guess the middle of our hurricanes calm but I'm not in the edge of a hurricane where everything is wild

Like I've got water assistance on my way to the gym that's great oh this one's really small but in the box for earpods pro you get a USB Sita lightning cable so any newer Mac that you have you can plug in or anywhere PC for that matter you don't need to get a dongle or an adapter like you would for a USB a cord because these come with lightning to USB a which is just your standard square USB these come with the reversible lightning which is reversible and also reversible USB C which is pretty cool a nice touch that Apple throws in their air Potts pro get

A final advantage when it comes to controlling on the pod to themselves where you can only double tap to activate Siri or a skip or rewind songs on air pods one and two you can actually play or pause or switch between active noise cancellation or transparency mode by just tapping or tapping and holding respectively with the little touch sensitive bar area on air pods Pro so that was a nice touch and I can definitely see myself and join that more rather than having to pull up my phone or my watch to actually stop something or use my phone processor inside

Although this can do so much more with transparency mode with noise cancellation on air pods Pro is identical in air pods too which means you both get hands-free Siri access so when you're walking around outside Siri with iOS agent points you can actually read you your text messages and you can reply hands-free without ever touching your Apple watch or your iPhone which is pretty sick you also have the ability to talk to Siri just by saying the trigger phrase Hey and then Siri and then Siri will actually have a conversation with you you can ask about the weather The

Voice is crystal clear on both of these it was really low quality for some reason with air pods one and Apple corrected that with air pods too so there's no difference and I find it interesting that Apple actually use the same chip you think they would have even just done a name change with something different to make this more pro but really they have that same functionality their battery life is actually an area of controversy because you can potentially get longer battery life on air pods too if you're someone who plans to always use the active noise

Cancellation on air pods Pro Apple says when you have it disabled on the Pro when you're not using active noise cancellation at all you can get up to 5 hours of continuous listening which is the same thing that they tell you about air pods too but if you do plan to use air pods Pro active noise cancellation regularly most of the time you list that battery life gets cut down by 30 minutes to four and a half hours my number-one complaint about airpot since they came out was the fact that the batteries don't last forever and if you use these a lot the batteries

Tended to create it pretty quickly so like after a year of usage the batteries don't hold as much juice if they did on day one much quicker than your iPhone because the batteries are so tiny I was hoping that on a pro model that would get better it hasn't these technically have less battery life and Apple has advertised these event as having last battery life because active noise cancellation will put a bit more of a drain on the battery but if you don't plan to use that which it is one of the big features I mean you get the same one both last thing on the list

Here is that air pods Pro come with a wireless charging case where air pods – for $200 you get that wireless charging case where if you don't need it you don't have to get it with air pods – you can opt out and if you know have wireless charging you save $40 for no difference in the pods of themselves so that's also something to think about I have wireless charging so it's definitely something I appreciate it's definitely good that it's standard here but is it necessary if you don't have wireless charging installed in your house already

Definitely not you don't need it and on all the charging cases there engravable so if you want to have them say something and you want to ruin your Apple product you can also get engraving on both of these these are air pods – and air pods Pro and for me I think most people are gonna be completely happy with air pods – that being said a key reasons that you should be looking at air pods Pro over standard air pods or for water resistance if you do sweat a lot or always working outside in conditions where you might be around splashes of water if you care about

Active noise cancellation and if air pods – have been uncomfortable or not worked in your ears before and even the sound quality that is sharper on air pods Pro and I think for a lot of people that they're gonna prefer the sound of air pots Pro it's just not something that I like and I get that you know audio is different for different people so air pods Pro should you upgrade well maybe but for me I actually really like your pods – I'm gonna be running these through their paces testing them out giving them some more time but not entirely blown away by ear pods Pro ear

Pods Pro are definitely better than air pods – in a number of ways but for most people I mean you can save over a hundred dollars just by buying air pods – with a wired charging case if you don't care about translation we don't care about why was charged if you don't care about better audio quality in some areas everybody we're still really good so maybe give those a try if you're looking to save a couple of bucks that's all I ever you in this video drop a like if you enjoyed it hit subscribe for more I've been Sam I'll catch you in my next
