Apple AirPods Pro $199.99 @ Staples (Save $50)
Compared to the standard Apple AirPods, the “Pro” versions add in a standard wireless charging case (although it can still be charged via a Lightning cable) and active noise cancellation technology. In addition, while the standard AirPods present as non-customizable earbuds that are “one-size fits all”, the AirPods Pro come with three silicon ear tips (small, medium, and large). Apple even include a handy utility in iOS/iPadOS that will tell you which ear tips provide the best seal for noise cancellation.
The AirPods Pro will also be picking up new features with iOS 14/iPadOS 14 like spatial audio, which allows audio to stay in a fixed position when you move your head. It will also support automatic device switching. For example, you could be joined in on a FaceTime chat with your Mac, but if a phone call comes through, the AirPods will automatically switch to your nearby iPhone to take the call. And if you then decide to grab your iPad to watch a movie, the AirPods will auto-switch to that device.
