One of mine had the crackling static thing and they replaced it for free out of warranty.

Lucky. My Airpod pros each crapped out twice and are no longer in warranty. Def not a good apple product.
I'm an Apple fanboy, but AirPods were not for me because they don't seal.
I've used Soundcore since they were a kickstarter project.
I currently use these, and love them.
ANC, great sound. The app even has a hearing test to set up a custom EQ.

Same here. And dealing with this was one of the best customer service experiences I've ever had. Apple overnighted me a box to send them back, had them for a day, and overnighted new AirPods back.

I'm just glad to see they are going back to function keys and ports (and magsafe)....

I mean, I'm not going to buy one, but if I were in the market for a standalone laptop, I'd be all over that 14" M1 powered macbook pro.

I still use my more than ten year old Bose headphones on flights. **** that in the ear wireless ****.

Every place I went to look at the 13 max had it secured to the table with anchor chains and it was impossible to see how it fit in my hand. I may hold out for the 14.

I have a pair of Beats Solo 2 wired headphones for flights. Does the job just fine!

When I travel for vacation, I never need my earbuds. I am not one of those people walking around listening to music or talking on the phone.

I like my AAA-powered wired bose noise cancelling headphones for flights...

You know you can just grab them and they won't have lost their charge...and if the battery is low, the case has a slot that holds a spare AAA.

I do have to carry a dongle for the cord, but otherwise it isn't a hinderance--its not like I am going for a jog on the plane. You can plug it in to the in-flight entertainment as well...

Wires make me break out in an anxiety sweat.
I have my trusty Sennheiser PCX500s that have logged a lot of air miles with me.
Somewhere around 24hours of use before needing a charge.

The new macbook pros are tempting, but I still don't really have a need for another laptop when I'm not travelling.

Ok, I joined the cult. I have a 13 mini in hand, and the pixel is going away.

Wasn't crazy about the new pixels, wanted to reward apple for offering a small phone (and encourage them with my $$$ to keep doing so), and might want an apple watch. Biggest reason though was probably that my work email/calendar sucks on android because IT forces us to use some ****** 3rd party email app.

On iOS, you can just use the standard Mail/Calendar apps...I got tired of losing track of things because I couldn't see all of my calendars in one place.

Any pro tips? Must have apps? Been a long time since I've really used an iphone.
