I bought it last week during their Black Friday/Cyber Monday week long sale and got "The Works" accessory package for free. Nice little deal with getting the shoes, mat, and heart rate monitor that I'll use. I won't use the other stuff but none the less, stuff I would've bought anyway with that package. Saved about $250. I get it delivered tomorrow afternoon and gonna try out my first class tomorrow evening. Can't wait.

What is the deal you guys are talking about? I missed it scanning the thread or something.

So far the best price I've seen on these if the Vet/Military pricing that takes $25 off of them. No need to Black Friday for that deal.

Are you talking about the Peloton that Yontsey and I are talking about or something else?

if it's about Peloton: There's a Black Friday special (maybe still going?) that gives The Works package. I don't know if they've still got it going. Aside from that, if you use a referral code, I think that both you and the referrer get a $100 gift card for apparel.

I missed the diversion to Peloton. I though you guys were talking about a deal on the AirPod Pros.

So far we have gotten exactly zero in the shop, and do not expect them before March. Same scenario as AirPods when they first launched.

I had my hands on a pair in the Apple Store near me. I thought about buying them then but it felt so impulsive that I refused. Guess I'll have to wait now.

So, I had a really freaking annoying problem with my Pros over the weekend. Bear in mind, this was over thanksgiving weekend when we were down in Georgia visiting my in-laws and we had a 5 hour drive back.

Friday morning, I woke up and tried to pop one bud in to listen to a podcast. I do this all the time. It didn't work. So I thought maybe it had discharged. I tried the other one. That didn't work either so I tried letting them charge for a while. After some time, I tried again. No dice.

I know they had charged because the light was green, so I tried unpairing and repairing them. They didn't show up initially but after holding the pairing button, I got the connect prompt.

I popped one in my ear and it worked. I tried the other and nothing. That one didn't show up in my bluetooth settings or anything. But pressing the stem made the click sound so they were working but they weren't connecting to my phone.

I tried unpairing and repairing again. Same song and dance about the pairing button. Put the one that wasn't connecting in my ear and it worked. Tried the other one and NOPE. It didn't work but had the same issue as the other one did the first time.

I repeated this process a 3rd time. It was like whichever I put in first would pair with my phone and the other wasn't able to.

Somewhere along the way, I tried turning on noise canceling and would get an error saying to put both in my ears to use ANC. Both were in my ears.

So I had one working AirPod for the trip home. Since my peloton was connected to them, I thought I'd try. The only one that worked with the peloton was the one that didn't connect to my phone. So I could listen to 2 different audio sources at the same time - peloton in one ear, iPhone in the other. Cool but not what I wanted.

I took it to the apple store and they were stumped. They just got me a replacement pair of buds. I had to wait because they had none in stock, obviously.

After letting them charge, I had the same damned problem! I finally broke down and tried pairing them to my wife's phone just to see and they worked just fine... I paired them to my phone a final time and they FINALLY worked normally.

I have no idea what happened or why. As you can tell, it was a pretty confusing series of events. Whatever. I've got my working AirPods again so I'm happy. I just hope that was the extent of the weirdness.

That's strange. I haven't listened to them with just one in, but I have noticed when I take one out, the podcast I'm listening to stops but if I wait a second, it'll start playing again from the one that's left in.

Mine normally do the “pause when one is removed” thing. I don’t think they start playing again unless I manually tell it to. Or if I cover the sensors with my hand so it thinks it’s in my ear.

I finally talked myself into getting these today. Well, last night I ordered them and picked them up in the store today. Semantics aside, I am blown away by the difference of these to the original AirPods. I walked into the store and let them know I was here for an in-store pickup. Someone brought me the box and asked if I wanted to set them up here or at home. I said here and walked over the to HomePod displays, no one is ever there so it is clear table space.

I opened the box, pulled the wrapping off of the case and opened it. Told my phone to connect and put the Pros in my ears. Moments later I heard a tone and the store when nearly silent!

That was my face when I looked around to see why everyone was so quiet. I kid you not if there were a candid camera on my Apple could have used my face to show how amazing the active noise cancelation work with these earphones.

I turned off the noice cancelling and there was the familiar background noise so loud I couldn't hear the music I was playing. These are totally worth the $225 I paid for them. Comfortable and I can listen to my music at an enjoyable level even when in a crowded place like the Apple Store.

I had been going back and forth on these as well, but ultimately decided on the Beats Solo Pro instead.

I have the second get AirPods and I use them constantly, but I'm always out and about walking the streets of Manhattan with them, so I need to be able to hear what's happening around me.

I only need noise cancelling at home and when traveling, so I thought the bigger headphones would be better for long periods of time.

The Solo Pros use the H1 chip, so they act like AirPods basically when connecting, so I'm a huge fan.

Got a set for Xmas, and just took them on my first cross-continental flight.

I have always *hated* noise cancelling headphones because it feels like my ears are getting sucked out of my head, but these... are just silent. The plane noise was almost *gone*, and my music was clear and crisp.

I was happy to use the transparency mode when interacting with the flight attendants, but realized that they couldn't tell I could actually hear them, and they were still yelling, so I took to just taking one out.

Frankly, I love these stupid things.
