          90 dollar fakes are exactly the same as the over priced turds. Y pay 270 when you can get some for 90

                The original airpods, like Apple's standard corded headphones could never stay in my ear. I could not even turn my head without the things falling out. Even earpods with foam or rubber ear canal pieces fall out on occasion (even with the largest ear piece). The only ones that work for me are ones that have a piece that goes over my ear to hold them in place

                                        How to make money with retards: release shitty ear buds and release good ones later. Every apple sheep bought both and paid twice. All reviews are bought, there is nothing special about the new ones. And if they tell something bad about apple, the reviewers wont get any future products.

                                                    The Galaxy buds sound like garbage they’re the worst wireless earbuds I’ve ever heard and they sound a lot worse than the basic AirPods. So if you’re comparing the pros to the galaxy buds and sayings it’s a toss up, then something isn’t adding up here.

                                                            Am I the only one who actually liked and preferred the semi in-ear quality of the original Airpods?
                                                            While I prefer in-ears for sound-quality, the ear-fatigue is very real when they're in your ears for hours on end. I don't get this with the Airpods. I have forgotten Airpods in my ears for an entire day on more than one occasion.
                                                            Because of this, I end up having to bring my Airpods along to carry me through the rest of a work shift, since my Galaxy Buds inevitably get too belligerent to continue using long-term.
                                                            (And the difference in sound quality isn't nearly as significant as the Apple-hate bandwagoners pretend is the case, so it's hardly an inconvenience aside from the annoyance of needing to carry two sets of wireless earbuds everywhere.)

I understand it prevents noise from getting into my ear when I listen to music on a windy day. But what’s with calling? The old AirPods used to pick up lots of wind and the person on the other end had trouble understanding me. Is this noise cancelled too?

The Apple ones look like a ear tampon, cool for those edgy hipsters that want attention but not for me.

                                                                                                  I only really care about three things when it comes to earbuds: sound quality, build quality, and comfort. Do these things really come close to the performance of something much cheaper like the Shure SE-215's? I seriously doubt it. I can't imagine these holding a candle to normal IEM's in the same price range.

                                                                                                  I don't care for active noise cancellation, the 90% noise isolation I'm getting with regular IEM's is perfectly fine, and doesn't screw up the sound.

                                                                                                  Being wireless is nice, until the battery runs out... or you want to use it with something that doesn't have blue-tooth... or when you get latency issues... or when the battery dies... or when the DAC isn't really all that good (is it really 24/96, Apple aims at music production too right?). Until they get all of that sorted out, my earbuds will be wired.
