Now the test for the AirPods Pro is the battery lifespan.

My AirPods first gen...after 2.5 years can only hold 3mins of charge on the left one and about 30min on the right.

But we can only tell after 2-3 years from now...hahaha...
*
all wireless headphone have similar problem, the lithium-ion battery is too small, easily degrade compare to phone
my first gen airpod after 2.5 years (i bought from japan before Malaysia launch), from spec 5hours music time, drop til 2hours... now takes me less than 10mins to full charge both side laugh.gif

i am tempting to get the new pro but the battery issue for all wireless headphone makes me think further sweat.gif something need 1k, after 2 years can throw already lol

Yah...the battery lifespan is really a big factor. I don’t mind fork our 500-600 every 3 years...but 1.1K...hmmm.... shakehead.gif
Maybe I should just buy the normal AirPods. Lazada 11.11 sales is selling RM559 only...what a bargain...
*
i will wait for lazada sales for airpod pro biggrin.gif last two months i help colleage bought airpod 2 with wireless charing case from [email protected] (879 RRP), i believe not long needed few more months lazada apple flagship store will selling cheaper than RRP airpod pro laugh.gif

try to squeeze few more months from my airpod gen1 first haha, now still okay since ~2hours music listening, less than 10mins charge to full sweat.gif less charge hold, less charging time

U are lucky that you can still get 2hrs. I need to use my wired EarPods now...
*
maybe because i have BeatsX, i using both BeatsX and Airpod... not only Airpod, but my BeatsX listening to music time also decrease by half already...
i actually not preferring in ear kind but the Airpod pro transparency mode from many reviews makes me wanted to give it a try again biggrin.gif seems Apple have do something different from all the in ear one... very different sweat.gif
those who own wireless headphone must have aware the battery is something very bad... after 1-2 years... it is so much different laugh.gif

But the battery life is nothing to be bragged about though.

4.5 hours vs 5 hours for the airpods 2.  hmm.gif

It will be lesser than 2 hours after a year of usage due to battery life degradation yes?
*
if you want wireless, all brands have similar problem due to small lithium-ion battery, it degraded faster
depends on whats the capacity of the wireless earphone, the smaller the faster it deteriorate over 1-2 years
i have first gen airpod, after 2.5 years, now left only close to 2hours of music time...

Just recieved mine!
Setting it now,
They dint come with a wall plug ?
Whats the best usbc wall plug for airpods ??
*
great, you should have iPhone right? use normal USB-A to lightning will do, guess airpods pro case not drawing alot of watt, it wont fast charge your airpods pro case even you use with pd charger
i have usbc pd charger head since iPhone X, additional this year 11 pro giving usbc charger

if you really want a usbc charger, get a pd one, search for ugreen pd charger in shopee, cheap and good i would say

Imo, 

Airpods pro
- good integration between iOS devices
- virtually no lag while gaming on ios devices
- sweat and waterproof, can be use for working out
- anc okay but not that great

Sony WF-1000XM3
- better sound quality
- better Active noise cancellation
- not sweat or waterproof
- slight lag delay for games on ios devices

Get what is best for your needs

i would say Airpods pro more comfort wearing for long time smile.gif

ANC if noise cannot cancel, i also cannot understand already. But apple fan here will accept anything apple come out and syiok sendiri statement so cant argue lol. I saw macrumors saying airpods pro ANC is much better than WF-1000XM3, i was like, LOL. Because if ceiling fan noise also cannot cancel out, really can fly kite. Apple should give back the ANC before update. This really let ppl upcar only
*
i am sure Sony ANC is better, i have tried out
every brand have its own pros, get the one suit you

but to your statement, you think every ceiling fan noise having same noise level huh? so naive
read the post better next time, and ceiling fan can have big small old new... your statement seems you only met one kind of ceiling fan in your whole life, what a joke
my post is comparing current firmware of airpods pro ANC vs previous with little ceiling fan noise still able to be hear, seems no diff btw two firmware, your statement cannot cancel ceiling fan noise is you syiok sendiri sweat.gif
