They've suggested that the body of each of the AirPod Pro buds is "one-piece 750-content gold."

Apple AirPods Pro Review – Why less noise costs more

If the AirPods' convenience was enough to make Apple's fully-wireless earbuds a runaway hit, adding active noise cancellation could send them stratospheric. That's the theory behind the Apple AirPods Pro, anyway, instantly familiar at first glance but packing the sort of sound isolation that city dwellers, office workers, and frequent fliers dream of. At $249 they may not be cheap, but can the AirPods Pro make up for that in the ears?

Apple AirPods Pro: 5 things to consider before you buy

They're the Apple product many have been waiting for: AirPods Pro bring active noise cancellation to the instantly-recognizable white earbuds.

With Apple's new AirPods Pro on the market, it's time to see if they can be easily repaired by end-users.

AirPods 3 with noise cancellation might finally be here really soon

Bluetooth audio accessories have become a lot more common these days and we have Apple to thank, or curse, for that. Despite its lead, however, the company that rang the death knell of the headphone jack has ironically lagged behind in some aspects of wireless Bluetooth headphones. The second generation AirPods improved on battery life but one feature that has consistently been leaked remains absent from the specs list. That may be changing this month and the next pair of Apple AirPods may at long last boast of active noise cancellation in their tiny bodies.

Besides the obvious affiliate angle, how did a discount about AirPods become news - and why do so many people care? Here are five reasons why Apple AirPods are so bonkers-level popular.
