Engadget Review

The AirPods Pro are Apple’s best true wireless earbuds to date, but they’re also its most expensive. The addition of key features like active noise cancellation, transparency mode, on-board controls and silicone ear tips are all upgrades over the previous two models. Despite Sony’s WF-1000XM3 outperforming these in terms of audio and noise cancellation, the AirPods Pro do a decent job with both, and hands-free Siri is a key feature Sony doesn’t offer.
