Apple’s new AirPods Pro are now available for purchase, and you’re going to read a lot of mixed things in reviews and on social media in the coming days. Apple super-fans who have never really tried anything else are going to gush about them nonstop, but audiophiles who know what they’re talking about aren’t quite as easy to please. Ask anyone who knows what’s up, and he or she will tell you that the Sony WF-1000XM3 True Wireless Bluetooth Noise Cancelling in-Ear Headphones blow AirPods Pro out of the water — and if you hurry up before they’re sold out on Amazon, you can get a pair of refurbs for just $179.99! That’s $50 off retail and $70 less than AirPods Pro, so definitely don’t miss out.
