So, here we go!

Available at the pricing of ₹24,500, Apple AirPods Pro is an upgrade from Apple AirPods 3 as they provide features which are as follows: –

  • Switching between ANC and Transparency Mode
  • Vent system for pressure equalisation
  • Battery Life is 4.5h + 24h (with case).
  • Spatial Audio with Dynamic tracking
  • Shorter stem
  • Skin-sensor enables the buds to play only when it’s placed in-ear. Otherwise, it pauses the audio.
  • H1 Chip enables high-quality audio streaming
  • Sweat and Water Resistant
  • MagSafe wireless charging
  • Battery Life: 6h on one charge + 30h with case
  • Hey Siri option available

But there’s a catch: While Apple AirPods Pro does work with Android devices, you will miss out on most of the features unless you have an iPhone or an iPad.

Available at the best deal on Amazon for ₹24,210, these earbuds scream of high-quality features! With these Bose earbuds, you can now switch between ANC and Aware mode, or even personalize noise-canceling level to your choice while enjoying the premium quality sound and it also cancels out most of the surrounding sounds while on call. These earbuds also have touch and swipe controls. However, they face the downside of battery life as a single charge gives a playback time of 6 hours, while with the charging case you will only get 12 hours, but can be charged using a Qi-powered charging mat.

If you can keep aside the battery life and price point, it’s a great TWS device to have in your possession.
