The Cons of AirPods Pro

The Cons of AirPods Pro

Recently, Apple released another product. That’s right, the AirPods Pro are here. This new accessory is sure to surprise Apple users, for better or for worse.  

Critics had few negative comments to make on the original AirPods. They encapsulate the same look as normal earbuds, just without the wires. AirPods revolutionized Bluetooth headphones and can be found essentially everywhere. 

Some people, such as myself, simply do not feel the need for AirPods. While they would be convenient, I cannot pay $159 for the cheapest pair of AirPods. It does not seem like much, but when one has a perfectly good, working pair of regular headphones, there is no need for me to spend that money. 

This being said, there is absolutely no way I would consider paying $249 for the AirPods Pro. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure they are nice. According to the Apple website, this new product includes silicone tips for noise cancellation. They also have a transparency mode that allows outside noise when needed. The design is also supposed to fit customers’ ears better. 

Along with the expensive price, the AirPods Pro are not pleasing to look at. They look odd, especially compared to the design Apple has had for years. Seriously, look them up, they are not cute. 

Overall, I am sure this new product is incredibly nice, hence the ridiculous price. I just don’t think its price or design are extremely intriguing elements for customers.
