Hello
I saw that Amazon has a sale on standard AirPods with wireless charging cases. Now I am wondering should I buy these or if it's worth spending more money on the Pros? Or, is there a better alternative to Airpods by different manufacture (I use an iPhone).
Have you all tried both the standard Airpods versus the Airpods Pros? What are the main differences?
I researched myself and saw here Spam Product the only difference is in dimensions and battery life.

The outstanding feature is that AirPods Pros have is active noise cancellation, which works really well. On the negative side, they plug up your ears which many people don’t like. My wife doesn’t want Pros for that reason.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

There seem to be a zillion earbuds that look like AirPods, so it’s reasonable to wonder what one product has over another.

The Pro features, including active noise cancellation, are good in some situations, essential in others. When I fly, I need something to block or cancel the high background noise levels, and my ears are uncomfortable anyway, so “plugging” them isn’t a big deal. In fact well fitted earbuds would be way more comfortable than the various GI earplugs I have worn flying on C130s.

What I want to know is whether AirPods Pro are “better enough” to go with them over another product, like the Jabra or Bose noise cancelling earbuds.
