The $129 model reflects an immediate saving of $30. They feature the classic style of Apple with its seamless fit and finish. Each time you hit this play button you expect to have a solid connection, powered by the H1 chip. The battery life is expected to be about 5 hours on a single charge, and the charging case can take up to 24 hours.
In contrast, the $228 AirPods Pro saves $21 instantly. You get a lot of AirPods for $234, however. Noise cancellation, which makes room for deeper bass and better sound isolation, is achieved. A charging case is also available, which can be charged wirelessly. Seriously, if your wallet allows it, this is the option you should choose.
