    Thoughts? Will you be upgrading from AirPods gen 1 or 2? For people who weren’t fans of airpods, is this “Pro” model enough to make you jump on board?

    I was really hoping the AirPods Pro would come in different colors, specifically BLACK. I will probably hold on to my Airpods2 a little longer for now.

    Agreed - midnight green to match my 11 Pro would have been fire!

    I have the original AirPods and will probably end up upgrading to these

    I just recently purchased a cellular model Series 5 Watch so I know I won’t be purchasing the AirPod Pro earbuds anytime soon.

    I'm not tempted to upgrade my AirPods 2 yet but I'll be following the reviews to see if they're really worth the Pro name.

    I was super excited about the spec and color rumors. Based on current release I’m not interested. If I didn’t have my original AirPods than I could see myself buying the AirPod Pros but I don’t see replacing my AirPods with them.

    I’ve never owned a pair of wireless headphones before. Tempted to get my hands on some whether it’s the new or old ones

    I'll wait until my AirPods 2 stop holding their charge. Then I'll see.

    The fit would be better, but the cost is just too high.

    Man, I really wanted an excuse to get some of these but the white only option just doesn’t sell me on it.

    Ordered this morning, and it's in preparing to ship status so hopefully tomorrow. I only got the gen 2 a month ago at a great price so will give them to my daughter. Hoping these will stay in my left ear when i move around and am keen for the NC as i sold my Bose QC3511.

    I ordered for the longer battery life and sweat resistance.

    I rarely have my AirPods in while I’m in the office, so I mainly use them for working out and flights/traveling.

    Should be a nice upgrade to my gen 1 AirPods that I purchased only a few months after AirPods first came out (at least a couple of years now, right?)

    I have the gen 1 and they are barely usable for me. They just pop out of my ears at the slightest movement.
    So I hope the new Pros will fix that - slightly different form, adjustable silicone tips.
    I'll buy them if I get confirmation from other people who had the same problem as me with the gen 1/2, that this got improved.

    That’s my biggest concern with buying wireless headphones. That they will fall out

    Battery life is actually worse on the Pros. No explanation given that I understand...also they won’t work with Apple Watch until 6.1 drops (but that’s today I believe).

    Do you think that Apple has put “in ear” tips on these to stop them falling out of 80% of human ears ?

    Good question and yes, because most people (80%) who have the 1/2 generation don't realize a slight twist while the AirPod is in the ear makes them fit snug and totally different. Just the other day while I was at the Hawks game I instructed someone on the proper fit and he was amazed at the difference in fit with a slight twist.

    I still like my old AirPods for ease of use, but for sound quality I've already bought the Sony WF1000xm3.

    I did read about that. I’m on AirPods gen 1, and I’ve never run out of battery, so hopefully these will still be better for me!

    And on that note... just got the shipping notification, so I should have them waiting for me when I get home from work tomorrow!

    Actually it is not.

    5 hours each for music (but 4.5 with Active Noise Cancellation on). A fair comparison is with ANC off - 5 hours each.

    Also, the previous poster has Airpods 1, not 2. Much worse call talk time on Airpods 1 than on 2 or on Pro.

    Im just gonna hold off on these. 50/50 chance there will be a new pair by March same with the apple watch. The way I see it, I'd be paying $50 more from the series 2 for a wireless charging case and a few other little tweaks. Even though I don’t like in-ear buds like there happens to be a color refresh later on I may get suckered in.

    I don’t own AirPods because the fit isn’t very good for me. The Pros are compelling because of the new design. I also love the active noise cancellation & the thought of the sound quality being better. They’re only 50$ more than my Bose Soundsport Free & there’s an added feature, so it’s no huge deal for me. Hopefully, they’ll have some in stock at Grand Central or Fifth Ave tomorrow.
