    Not sure if there is another thread for AirPods specifically, but the Pros are on for $300 at Visions this week. Those that already possess them, should i buy? Or are Pro2 going to be out in a few months or something

    We dont have a TV in bedroom, she watches youtube videos on her phone and listens to podcast at like a 4 or 5 "iphone" volume to get to sleep. I on the other hand need complete silence to sleep so I usually sleep with earplugs on 33db blocking and then have a pillow ontop of the exposed ear.

    Lately shes been really into reality drag shows so its been alot of that kind of drama. Theres only so much rupaul I can take.

    So...you knew about her unhealthy obsession with drag queens before you married her?
    Donít think the drag queens shows started in 2008 I could be wrong. The listening thing only started a couple of years ago.

    I support your wife's right to enriching her worldly views with wholesome girl (and gender fluid) power documentaries. You go nzwaspwife!

    ProTip: Get a set of earbuds that connects both sides independently.

    Am married, partner just cares about my sleep / well being is all.

    Regardless of your situation, i will also chime in the obligatory airpod pro plug. I have a set and they work amazing for all situations - Im sure better sets exist... or better value options but the airpods check all the boxes for me

    i've been hunting for earbuds this year..also not an audiophole, was mostly looking for something cheap and small enough to lay on my side while wearing so i can lay on the couch at night and watch tv without waking up the kids.

    here's what i've tried

    random china brand TWS - - the plastic on these feels super cheap, and the voice tells you they are paired and stuff has a super heavy accent, but the bluetooth and functionality are good. they pair easily, and battery is decent. they are also a little too bukly for my purposes.. cant lay down with this thing in my ear. but functionally they seem on par with any brand name headphone i've used

    https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    soundpeats - on the higher end of the price range for cheap china headphones bought them due to a higher price tag, was hoping to avoid the super cheap feel of the pair above annddd... these things suck. the upside is they look a lot closer to airpods (minus the case being a lot bulkier) and are comfortable in the ear (and small enough to lay down with), , but everything else sucks. bluebooth/pairing is garbage, battery life is non-existent, the case is crappy and they dont sit in the case well and so often dont recharge

    https://www.amazon.ca/SOUNDPEATS-Blu...4-135149aa9081



    TWS i11 - these are straight up airpod copies, down to the "designed by apple in califorina" printing on the package lol. found these on ali express.. .. can be had for like 15-20 bucks, and they are very good copies lol. they are obviously cheaper made (case doesnt as feel as solid when you click it shut for example), and the pairing isnt seamless like an airpod (i've had no issue pairing them to appletv or my android phone), but the size/shape are identical. they even fit in a genuine airpod case (wont charge, as the connectors are different, but they physically fit) - for cheap china headphones.. these are my favorite so far.

    and finally, i recently bought a pair of sony wf-1000xm3 - specifically for the noise cancelling (though they do sound amazing as well) and wow! these things are incredible at noise cancelling. they are big and bulky.. i dont think they would be great for sleeping.. at least for me they dont seem to stay in my ear very well regardless of what tip i put on them. but its crazy how much of the world disappears when you turn on ANC with them. i had a neighbor running a concrete saw all day the other day, and without these things on, if i stood in my garage with the door open (he's my neighbor across the alley), it physically hurt my ears, put these things in and turn on ANC.. and its a low background noise all of a sudden. if you're in a car on the highway and turn on ANC.. it's like the car disappears and your floating down the road. its eerie how quiet it is.


    https://quieton.com/ - i havent tried these things myself.. but i'm super curious to, for sleep purposes they seem perfect if the ANC is anywhere close to the level of the sonywf-1000xm3


    Sennheiser CX sport - oh forgot 1 other i guess i can include... not TRUE wireless.. it has the cord in between, but before i went looking for cheap true wireless stuff, i tried a pair of these as i had always liked sennheiser stuff. and they arent very impressive either. sound quality is good. but for 170 dollar headphones the bluetooth is garbage. very inconsistant.. for a sport headphone.. it doesnt seem to have a stable connection to my phone. if im out running and my phones in my pocket.. i get audio quality issues and cut outs.. and it doesnt support multiple device pairing. really disappointing for a big price tag and big name.

    Check rtings for call quality. Lots of very good earphones have bad call quality.

    But Anker and Aukey are both pretty reputable audio brands.

    I tried a pair of cheapo qcy T1 ($30) sound quality 4/5 (If airpods are 5 for wireless, but closer to a 2.5 if on the wired scale) , comfort is 2/5 (can only do about 1hr in these)

    Finally got my Bluedio Particles in and: Nope, these are not the in ears you are looking for.

    Bass is lacking, they only ship with three sets of proprietary inserts, all of which are too small for me. I wasn't expecting miracles for $20. They would probably sound a heck of a lot better to my head, if they moved the speaker 2 mm deeper into the ear canal and actually had a large size insert to trap that bass in.

    They supposedly sound good to those with tiny ears, so take everything with a grain of salt.

    That being said: I'm not a fan of in-ears in general. Nothing beats a nice 500 watt freestanding system to shake your toes.

    I bought Mifo sport ones. I like them but have nothing to compare to. I do notice that they will sometimes drop connectivity for a second at a time here and there, I don't know if that's typical or not. I like the aluminum body, the fitment is good, they don't fly out of my ears at the skatepark or anything.

    Same with my Dudios ones. If I'm at home, works fine. But on my walks with pup, they cut in and out for a second or 2 a few times, then good again for a few minutes and repeat.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    any recommendations to replace my over the head sony wh-1000xm3? i tired using them at the gym and it gets too hot and sweaty around the ear/head, looking for something similar sound quality wise, but for active use.
    would the in ear sony wf-1000xm3 be suitable, or should i just get airpods?

    Why do you want sweaty headphones? I have a wh-1000xm first gen that I use once a month for non-sweaty listening.
