Audiophile praises AirPods Pro, even classifying sound only as “OK”

We already have a video making a tour for the main novelties and characteristics of AirPods Pro, and soon we will publish a full review of the Apple headphones. Still, it’s always cool to have varying perspectives on the analysis of a particular product – and for that reason, nothing better than listening to a audiophile cardholder giving his opinion on Apple’s latest hearing creation.

That’s exactly what the YouTuber Quinn Nelsonchannel Snazzy Labs. Nelson, who classifies traditional AirPods as “the best mediocre headphones out there”, analyzed the novelties brought by the new Apple model and compared it with the only other headset on the market that brings its two main features (in-ear tips and active cancellation) noise): the Sony WF-1000XM3.

In the opinion of YouTuber, the noise cancellation of AirPods Pro is competent, doing its job well in environments with constant noise (like an airplane), but without the same effectiveness in places with irregular noise, such as a crowded cafeteria. In fact, it is worth watching the video if only to see (and hear) Nelson’s demonstration of the operation of the resource in its two modes, that of Active Noise Cancellation it’s the Transparency mode (which Apple also calls Environment Mode) – and don’t forget to put your headphones on!

The sound quality of the headphones, in turn, was classified as “OK”, presenting an expected performance considering the history of Apple and with good competence for reproducing voices (which makes AirPods Pro great for calls or podcasts, according to Nelson ).

This, of course, is not everything: the analyzer believes that Sony’s headphones surpass those of Apple with ease in terms of sound quality and noise cancellation (even with a noticeable drop in playback quality with the feature turned on). Even so, Nelson does not forgive the defects of the WF-1000XM3, such as the connection drops, the clunky and heavy design, the significantly larger case and the app, considered by him to be terrible.

Because of this, the YouTuber rated AirPods Pro as the best all wireless headphones on the market – although their sound will not impress anyone, the ease of use and the intelligent design of the accessories are enough to please the vast majority of users.
