Apple's signature headphone series isn't getting any new hardware announced today, but that doesn't mean that there's nothing to talk about. With the advent of iOS 15 and iPad OS 15, AirPods are getting handy new features that more fully integrate them with Apple's ecosystem, and new onboard features that make them work better all on their own.
The AirPods Pro might be made by Apple, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth a look from Android enthusiasts. Apple's flagship earbuds offer a comfortable in-ear fit, a wireless charging case, and top-of-the-line active noise cancellation that's among the best you'll find in earbuds this small. And right now, Woot is selling them for just $189.99, a savings of $60 off the MSRP.
When Apple debuted the Airpods Pro in 2019, it took what customers loved from Airpods and added active noise cancellation, better sound quality, and a sealed in-ear design. The combination of simplicity, reliability, and convenience makes them some of the world's most popular wireless earbuds. Many clones have been created, but some copy the formula better than others. Swedish company Urbanista's new London earbuds cost $149 and offer touch controls, wireless charging, and ANC — pretty much everything that Apple's Airpods Pro do but for significantly less cash. And while they succeed in a number of ways, there are also some potential deal breakers involved.
