John Gruber for Daring Fireball:

Apple invited a few dozen media folks to New York today for a briefing and early access to the new AirPods Pro. My initial impression: I like them… Noise cancellation worked really well for me. I own a pair of Bose over-the-ear noise canceling wireless headphones, but almost exclusively wear them only on airplanes and trains. Wearing noise-canceling earbuds on the subway and walking through the city is going to take some getting used to. It’s so good you really do lose sense of your surrounding aural environment…

There’s no question how AirPods Pro compare to regular AirPods. The difference is like night and day…

Comfort-wise, my ears felt fine after those three consecutive hours of use. It’s a very different feeling compared to regular AirPods, but I like it. I’ve never had a problem with regular AirPods falling out of my ears, but AirPods Pro feel way more secure.

MacDailyNews Take: We’ve run races with regular AirPods and they’ve never even come close to falling out of our ears, but we are happy to get all of the new features and much better sound quality that AirPods Pro offers.
