The best all-rounder
The AirPods Pro have excellent active noise cancellation and work seamlessly with Apple devices. With spatial audio support for movies and music (aka virtual surround sound) and balanced sound quality, they are a versatile set of earbuds for a variety of listening scenarios. They also have excellent call quality. You can also use the AirPods Pro with Android phones, although you lose some features like spatial audio and quick switching.

Echo Buds 2
Great value and b performance
Amazon has completely redesigned the second-generation Echo Buds with a more comfortable fit and improved noise cancellation compared to the original Echo Buds. They also have the benefit of hands-free Alexa, so if youre already familiar with Amazons voice assistant, these are a natural extension. They have a ber bass response than the AirPods, but call and mic quality arent as good. But for the price, especially on discount, they are excellent value.
