  • "reverse fanboy-ism" yes. avoiding a company that knowingly utilizes child labor is 'reverse fanboy-ism'. yes, avoiding a company that sells it's crap at a 2x markup because it turned tech into a fashion statement for elitist trust-fund dipshits is reverse-fanboyism. I've been a fan for a long time, not anymore. "do not recommend this channel" here I come.

  • I cant wait for the day when linus will just admit that the best option is truly to either get the best bang for your buck because you need basic headphones but truly wireless (samsung or oneplus) or just straight up airpods pro. the other options are almost entirely filler. Also all of them suck for music compared to wired IEM or any number of on-ear/over-ear headphones.

  • I bought airpod pros, and I found them so uncofortable, they hurt my ears a lot after even half an hour or so. I wanted so badly to love them, but I may just return them and get the Sony WF-1000XM3, or the Galaxy buds live. Also wasn't too impressed by the sound tbh, I mean it was decent, but my $50 dual driver soundpeats I had (before they died) sounded a lot better than the pros IMO.

  • Just got the AirPods Pro for Xmas. Coming from a pair of surprisingly good $8 bluetooth buds I got from Wish and a wired pair of Skullcandies I got for $30 in 2010. I will say that the pro’s biggest strength for me is the integration with macOS and iOS. Being able to switch the device that they play from by just hitting the play button is a treat. But IMO wireless headphones overall are still best for video content, phone calls, and zoom meetings. For pure music, the best options are still the wired ones.

    • I just got the GB+ for Christmas and they're pretty excellent so far. it's surprising how long they can last and they're extremely comfortable in ear. I was using Bose's sport sound free before and while I still like them a lot it's definitely an upgrade. I'll keep & use the Bose for workouts and the Galaxy Buds are will be for everything else
