If you own a 2018 iPad Pro, you probably also bought Apple’s USB-C-to-3.5mm headphone jack adapter, just so you can plug headphones into your $1,000-plus computer.

Here’s a short list of things that are wrong with regular AirPods:
They don’t fit in the ears properly.
They don’t seal out environmental noise.
Those grilles get gunked up with earwax really easily.

The new AirPods Pro fix all of these problems, apart from the last point on the list. And to be honest, it’s so easy to change the volume by squeezing your iPhone through your pocket, or by using an Apple Watch, that the lack of a volume control isn’t that big of a deal.
