"AirPods are no longer cool, claim people who can't afford them"This headline is pathetic. People don't like AirPods because they sound horrible. I have the Bose QC Earbuds and I've tried the Sony XM4s, both of which are better and more costly than the AirPods Pro. AirPods (Pro) are inferior compared to these headphones in every way except for integration with the Apple ecosystem.

It's an extremely base and fallacious argument it reflects poorly on people that try to make it.
AirPods are cool insist people who found they spent $175 for AirPods that sound like $20 headphones and are ashamed and outraged to have just found out that they are no longer cool and wasted $155! I have a pair of JHA Roxanne’s IEM’s and no Bluetooth one size fits all is ever going to provide the same comfort and sound quality. It all depends on where you are in life, how much you have to spend and what you like. Class warfare comes to Appleinsider …
Some "wired" devices actually are still "wireless" in that they are wired only between the ears rather than wired to your iOS device. E.g., Beats Flex.
