AirPods Pro review: Still great, but there are better options on Android

Here’s the thing: like most Apple accessories, the AirPods Pro work best with Apple products. They’re pretty great if you use an iPhone, an iPad, or a MacBook. They connect instantly and feature hands-free Siri along with sensor-based play/pause when you remove one or both earbuds.
