    How do they hold up in semis when it comes to noise cancellation technology and the overall experience? Thinking of switching to iPhone..

    I have a pair of the Beats Powerbeats Pros waiting at the house for me... I opted for them in the Truck due mainly to the longer battery life as compared to the AirPods Pro... I don’t believe they have the same ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) as the AirPods but will still fill the ear with the silicone tips to block some noise and muffle the engine... but I normally only use one at a time so not as concerned about blocking out everything.

    as to switching to iPhone... personally I love my iPhones and iPads... I jumped into the Apple Ecosystem 10 years ago with a MacBook Pro for my daughter going off to college and never regret doing so... no, Apple is neither prefect nor for everyone... but I personally love my little walled garden.

    I can’t speak to how they hold up in a semi, but I will say that I really like my pro’s. Excellent sound and battery life has been great. When I’m not using them I put the case on my wireless charger and charge them back up.

    You don't have to get an iPhone, they work with Android phones also

    While they “work” on Android, it’s basically just a BlueTooth headset at that point... One would benefit more from the investment if it’s matched to an iPhone... or save some money and get another quality Bluetooth headset that isn’t made by Apple.

    If it’s just using BlueTooth, I wonder if they will take a hit on battery life... I assume ANC would still work, if it’s totally an internal process, but I wonder how many other things would be limited if it’s not running within it’s designed ecosystem.

    Would actually be curious to know.

    Yes I'm aware. But I've been considering switching to iPhone long before I started eyeing airpods. And as another member pointed out they work much more harmoniously with iPhone.

    So if I do go for Airpod Pros (I probably will, like everything I've heard so far) it will happen when I upgrade my phone.

    I purchased some Gen II AirPods just the other week ...

    They are just regular .... not sure about the "Pro's "

    The Pods do just fine with audio books and music
