Alternative to AirPods Pro... kinda

This is another non-photography-specific mention of a product I was just sent for review, and they specifically oferred a discount code for DPReview members, so to avoid breaking the forum rules, and if you are interested in the product, just PM me and I'll send you the discount codes.

The product link is from Amazon, so within DPR realm:

These are a cool set of noise canceling earbuds, much like the new AirPods Pro costing 6 times more, and quite frankly very comfortable to use, although I'm not an in-ear advocate. I prefer the regular AirPods, but I understand that you won't be able to isolate yourself if you don't seal that ear canal. So, with the 4 tips included, I'm sure you'll find one that fits your ear geometry. Sadly, noise canceling only works for calls, and not for everything else. It would have been great if it were active all the time, so you could potentially use it on a long flight. But again, earbuds battery life is limited, so it makes more sense to use a full sized NC over-the-ear headphone when air traveling.

Other than that, IPX7 certified, so you can use them while exercising, and Buetooth 5.0, so the range is pretty good. Maybe too good. More than once I was very far away from them, and they still were connected when I didn't want to.

Hope you find it useful.
