Lori Gil likes Apple’s new AirPods Pro:
If you’ve been waiting your whole life (or at least a few years) for AirPods that are actually comfortable to wear for long periods of time, run, don’t walk, to your nearest Apple Store because they’ve finally made something that doesn’t press against your ear cartilage after a half hour.
What about the sound?
The word “pro” sure is being thrown around a lot these days. Adding one or two new features and charging more for a product does not make it a professional-grade product and AirPods Pro are not professional quality audio by a long shot.
My understanding is that they are not supposed to be. “Pro” just means more, not professional.
I do think Apple could go back to the drawing board and try again to make AirPods sound like HomePods in my ears. I think Apple can do it someday, and I think Apple will do it someday.
Dream on, sweetie. Physics matter.
