Buzzfeed’s Nicole Nguyen was found to be positive on the sound design, however, the high price and low battery life (5 hours), however, may not be for everyone.

“The pack will have a lot of features into a very, very, very, very slim design, so if portability is your main concern, then, is the AirPods Pro is a fantastic premium option for those with Apple devices, the headphones are to be used for a short, ~4-hour sessions across the day-to-wear, as well as $250, to spend it,” Nguyen wrote. “But there are better options, such as noise-cancelling headphones with better battery life.”



CNet’s David Carnoy said, the higher price is well worth it if you’re considering an older, AirPods.

“If your AirPods, and they fit in your ears properly, you don’t have to run out and buy the pro (which I would have to wait for your AirPods to die, and they will, sooner rather than later, and if you use them a lot),” he wrote. “However, if you have a look at the $199 of the AirPods Wireless Charging, I would put them through and go straight to the Pros. The Pros will have to have a wireless charger, and for their superior sound and extra features are worth the extra dough.”


The time, Patrick, Austin, Luke, said that the new AirPods Pro headphones are the company’s best gadget, in a few years.”

“Let’s be clear: These are very good, and is probably the best product to Apple, because it was decided that the tablets need to be one thing,” Austin wrote. “The company is at its best, is a combination of an idea and it’s close to perfect.”
