Apple AirPods Pro – $220, was $250

Digital Trends

The AirPods Pro model is the latest to join Apple’s family of true wireless earbuds. They come with all the best features of the original AirPods plus a variety of upgrades, making them a real champ that knocks down the previous generations in all respects. The California-based tech giant outfitted them with the same golf-tee design although it’s a bit shorter now. Another noticeable design change is the addition of a silicone tip in each earbud. Three sizes of soft, flexible silicone ear tips are included so you can customize the fit for secure and comfortable wear as well as completely seal the ear canal for better bass response, noise blockage, and sound delivery.

When it comes to audio quality, the AirPods Pro are actually in the same league with the highly rated Sony WF-1000XM3 and Sennheiser Momentum. Whether you’re listening to podcasts or music, you can expect them to come along with fine details as well as a tuneful and punchy bass response. Their noise-canceling performance is equally impressive. The earbuds do a fine job of blocking unwanted background noise, giving out an effect similar to the noise cancellation of the Sony WH-100XM3 and Bose QuietComfort 35 II. If you prefer to remain aware of what’s happening around you and let the ambient noise in, you can easily do by activating the Transparency mode.

The AirPods Pro boast the same convenience of Siri, intuitive touch controls, and accelerometers that Apple fans have to come to rely on with the previous models. Battery life is also unchanged, offering up to five hours of music streaming on a single charge. The included charging case is compatible with Qi-certified charging mats and carries an impressive amount of backup battery power at more than 24 hours.

iOS users on the hunt for the best true wireless earbuds don’t need to look any further than the AirPods Pro. As part of the Memorial Day sales, Verizon is offering this model for $30 off. Order a pair now for only $220 and enjoy immersive sound during your calls, multimedia consumption, and workout jamming.
