    15k official PH price.

    Would need to compare its sound and ANC over my Sony WFs, and I’m sure calls and Siri would be way better with the Airpods Pro. So expensive though!

    Mm...yeah doing it for the past 25 years.....except Apple reinvented the wireless earbuds and in less than 3 years, it outsold just about any wireless earbuds out there COMBINED.

    Airpods is the best selling wireless earbuds.....in the history of wireless earbuds....by a titanic margin.

    It has succeeded big time and everyone is copying it....literally.....even jologs are wearing fake ones tied to their androids.

    Do you think they'll sell more if they start making this in other colors?

    This. :ROFLMAO:

    I doubt that. Earliest would be 1-2 weeks from Oct 30 or worst, could be for another 2-4 weeks.


    I feel sorry for those who are thinking the next version of Airpods will be announced/released a few months from now (this is expected though until rumors/leaks starts spreading online a few days/weeks back) and bought a brand new pair of Airpods 1 or 2 last week along with their new iPhones. I saw some comments on PMC a few weeks ago saying they should've bought iPhone 11 instead of XR a few weeks back.

    Do you hear what I hear? (Do you hear what I hear?)
    Airpods handed down from my ears to my son's ears.
    Merry Christmas grin from ear to ear. :)

    I... don't know how I feel about the flexible tips. I've used other wireless earphones with such tips before and for some reason I could never find the right fit. I didn't have such a problem with the original AirPods (or maybe because I didn't have any choice so my ears learned to love them as they were?)

    But regardless, I have to say goodbye to my 1st gen AirPods. I also skipped Airpods 2, and I'm all too ready to not have to lift my hand to tap to activate Siri.

    I'm venturing a guess that extra flexible tips will be sold for nothing less than $100 LOL. Ah, Apple. Ripping us off and we're loving 'em for it. :ROFLMAO:

    Care to share how you get it shipped? :)

    I just googled flights to HK this week and the cheapest I could find is Php6K lol. I think I can wait a little longer till our grey market friends at GH get them into the country.

    Thanks! I just checked the site out to get some estimates - $17 for air cargo + $10 handling fee? Is that close to what you actualy paid?
