Conclusion

The original Apple Airpods are identical with the only difference being the charging case.  For many people the extra $40 for the wireless charging case isn’t worth the extra cost.  The original Airpods are comfortable after a few days of usage but the Airpods Pro are much more comfortable right out of the box.  For the budget conscious buyer we recommend the Airpods with wired charging case.  The Airpods Pro are the better choice with the noise cancellation and silicone tips.

Recommendation

The Apple Airpods Pro are our recommendation.  Sweat and water resistant make it a great choice for exercising and outdoor activities. In our opinion the extra comfort and extensive feature list justifies the extra cost.

If you prefer over the ear headphones your only choice from Apple is the Airpods Max.  Apple did not disappoint with the Airpods Max design.  The Airpods Max are very comfortable and the bass response is outstanding.

Immersive listening

To cancel unwanted external sound, AirPods Max use a total of six outward-facing microphones to detect noise in your environment, and two inward-facing microphones to measure what you’re hearing. Beamforming microphones help isolate your voice on phone calls, so it’s heard clearly — even in windy situations.
