For the last couple of years I’ve used a pair of Bose QC35 II over-ear noise-cancelling headphones for commuting and the (home) office, and Bose Soundsport earbuds for exercise (indoors and outdoors). Apart from one Raspberry Pi, I’m all in on Apple devices. I’m contemplating getting AirPods Pro as a less bulky noise-cancelling option that could take the place of the two Bose pairs, and for the promise of more seamless switching among my (counts…) six Apple devices.
I’ve read a variety of experiences here and on the major Apple blogs. Can anyone here reassure or warn me, especially if you’ve used the QC35 as well as AirPods Pro:
- Is the APP’s noise cancelling comparable to the QC35’s or at least close enough?
- Are rattling and squealing still likely issues?
- I’m afraid AirPods may be too easy to lose in transit – can I trust Find My… to alert me if I’ve left them in a cafe?
- If I’m listening to a podcast on my iPad while my partner watches something on the Apple TV, and a phone call comes through, how confused will the AirPods get?
