Do I Really Need Headphones?

If you’re going to be listening to music or taking calls, don’t be that person that puts their music on speaker for everyone to hear. Don’t be taking your Tuesday morning conference call on speaker in the middle of the grocery line. Even if you were a fan of wired headphones in the past, unless you’re an Android user, it’s time to seriously consider upgrading your headphones to AirPods already.

Pros of AirPods

According to Apple, the 2nd generation AirPods have up to five hours of listening time on one charge with more than 24 hours of listening time with the charging case. The latest 3rd generation AirPods have up to six hours of listening time on one charge and up to 30 hours of listening time with the charging case. Either way, that’s some pretty long-lasting battery for headphones. The charging feature of the AirPods case is convenient.

Cons of AirPods

However, if you wish to use your AirPods with a non-Apple device like an Android or your non-Apple laptop, you won’t have the same seamless connectivity as you would with an iPhone or MacBook. There are similar Bluetooth earbuds that have a similar quality to Apple AirPods that aren’t nearly as expensive as the AirPods, let alone the AirPods Pro. While AirPods offer excellent quality, they offer it at a price that not everyone wants to pay or can afford to pay.

AirPods vs. AirPods Pro

If you’re looking for a more immersive audio experience, opt for the AirPods Pro. Compared to the standard AirPods, the AirPods Pro offers active noise cancellation and transparency mode when you want more audial awareness of what’s happening around you. You can also customize your comfort with the AirPods Pro since they come with silicone ear tips in three different sizes.

Are AirPods Too Expensive? First, there was AirPods. Then, there was AirPods Pro. Suddenly, Apple came out with their first on-ear headphones with the AirPods Max. Let’s compare the prices for all three. The 2nd generation AirPods start at $129. The 3rd generation AirPods begin at $179. If you want to take advantage of the AirPods Pro with active noise cancellation and spatial audio with dynamic head tracking, that begins at $249. Check out the jump with AirPods Max. Those over-ear headphones begin at a whopping $549. If you’re a serious audiophile, you may want to consider upgrading to the AirPods Max. If you’d rather stick to the practicality of small, wireless headphones, stick to the 2nd generation or 3rd generation AirPods.

Do AirPods Work with Android?

According to MacRumors, while AirPods do actually work with an Android, you lose some original helpful features when using AirPods with an Android instead of an iPhone as it was meant for. You’ll lose certain functionality on an Android, such as the easy setup that comes with an iOS device. You also won’t be able to use just one AirPod on an Android. However, you’ll still enjoy the AirPods’ same wire-free design and can even use the double-tap settings on an Android.
