AirPods Pro review: Still great, but there are better options on Android
Here’s the thing: like most Apple accessories, the AirPods Pro work best with Apple products. They’re pretty great if you use an iPhone, an iPad, or a MacBook. They connect instantly and feature hands-free Siri along with sensor-based play/pause when you remove one or both earbuds.
But with Android phones, the AirPods Pro are just another pair of true wireless earbuds, albeit ones with excellent noise cancellation, some handy capacitive controls, and a relatively portable case. But that doesn’t stop people from thinking about buying them over the competition. But back in 2016, when the first AirPods were released, there weren’t a lot of better options for Android users. Now there are.
