It has become a universal phenomenon. Whenever Apple introduces a new product, people all over the world analyze its every feature with scrutiny. The same fate awaited the iPhone 11, the $999 monitor stand, and other devices. Now, it's time for the new AirPods Pro.

Available from the 30th of October, the wireless earbuds will be sold for $249. According to Apple, the AirPods Pro have the same battery life as AirPods, offering up to five hours of listening time on a single charge. However, they should sound noticeably better, with improved bass performance.
The AirPods Pro also detect external sound and cancel it out. The company said the Pro's noise cancellation "continuously adapts the sound signal 200 times per second." Switching between the two modes (noise cancellation and Transparency), the earbuds have a new "force sensor" on their stem (you pinch the stem between your fingers to switch modes). With it, people will also be able to play, pause or skip music, and hang up on phone calls.
However, immediately after Apple announced the product, people started memeing the heck out of the new AirPods. Mocking the design, internet users have compared the earbuds to hairdryers, the Peashooter from Plants vs. Zombies, the Pixar lamp, and much, much more.
