  • all right, So this is a topic I've been looking to cover for a while now.

  • There are so many airpods type headphones that are available on the market.

  • I did a video on a product called Black Pods, but the A was flipped.

  • I didn't think much of it.

  • I didn't realize how big the landscape of these kind of air pod looking headphones really was.

  • Its extensive.

  • And, of course, I have a bunch of new ones that popped up in the Air Pots Pro format.

  • This one is called Air Buds Pro.

  • The same company did the black pods that I featured, and they've got their very own black version of what the airpods pro like.

  • These are the original black pods, which, by the way, you have no idea really what you're buying when you buy any of these, A number of people that, based on that original video went out and tried to buy these ones and then ended up thinking they had received a different product in the one that I even showcased in a video.

  • On top of that, there's people who paid money to certain websites and didn't get products back so just as you are watching this realize right now that this landscape is vast and bizarre, you don't really know what's what and what you're gonna get for your money.

  • So keep that in mind for the record like this one is called knocking.

  • Look at these air a bit different.

  • I've got them on the table because they just showed up as well.

  • They're called Air Gold's first things first.

  • If you ordered some of these in the past on the based on the original video, you have some kind of problem with it.

  • I just want to speak directly to this company.

  • Black police try to make it right by these people.

  • Just refund their money.

  • If they didn't, if they can't receive the package, I don't know, do something, and I have no affiliation with this company at all.

  • Nonetheless, we're going to go over some of the newer options here Before we get into it.

  • I got to give a quick shout out.

  • We have an official unbox therapy on boxing night.

  • You've probably seen this on the channel.

  • You can actually buy it right now.

  • It is a collaboration on box therapy and stat gear It's the Pocket samurai.

  • It's a pocket knife with the Unbox therapy inscription on it.

  • It's available on their Web site.

  • It's also available on Amazon, but like I said, it's limited quantities.

  • They have been doing this particular pocket knife for a while and then just sort of upgraded it for the Unbox therapy version.

  • Unbox your products like a professional.

  • First things first.

  • Let's pop into these.

  • What are called the air buds Pro really has the buds air.

  • This company has the air buds.

  • We still got the dog air, but so you got to keep it all together.

  • Now they include The paperwork is very Apple Ask.

  • It's almost like you bought the official thing here.

  • The packaging is very, uh, well, it's Apple esque.

  • You think it's identical, to be honest, and that's what the cable looked like.

  • Type C connector.

  • So oh, man, maybe the lady is a little more loose.

  • You want to compare?

  • Oh, yeah.

  • Do you have the Where are the airpods pro?

  • Oh, yeah.

  • This is the air pods pro who can even keep it.

  • Look at the box.

  • That's the air pots pro.

  • So there they are.

  • Those two next to each other.

  • Wait, wait is very similar to the product from Apple.

  • It has a smoother open close on the lid.

  • The lid has a little bit of give, like this back and forth, the apple one is a bit tighter.

  • The black grill looks more like a mesh sticker on the air buds pro and also on the bottom.

  • It looks quite a bit different now.

  • If we compare that to the product, the black pods product peace, you must be Oh no, there.

  • This is a matte finish on this product compared to glossy on the earlier one for the paint.

  • But the hinges the same, and the grill unit is a bit different on this one.

  • The whole thing is not a grill.

  • These ones are similar, but they're also a little different.

  • And in the last pair of the pro models is these ones, called Naki is now.

  • The box here looks identical to the box from the first pair of the air buds Pro.

  • That one looks almost exactly like the 1st 1 No, the hinges a bit different on the container.

  • It's kind of wild.

  • There's all these little variations and varieties the Noche ese probably have the best grilled component.

  • It's the it's buried in there, the smoothest my goodness, Would you look at that now?

  • Also, it's important to know the black pods situation.

  • The original inspiration was to create an air pod like device that was black because Apple didn't do it.

  • They did not make black available.

  • So, of course, when it comes to the pro model, they're gonna have to have the black version as well.

  • And this one is the matte black style.

  • Exactly the same.

  • Except for the fact that is Matt Black.

  • The black pods models are using a traditional USB connector toe lightning and the earlier ones that I own box the air buds pro and the noche ese are using lightning thio USB type seat.

  • Okay, so that's another thing worth mentioning.

  • All right, so the last one to add to the mix before we listen to a couple of these is the air goals, which, to me it's obviously the most unique of the bunch is going to be painted in gold.

  • By the looks of it, it effectively gives you a painted gold air pot.

  • If you if you really have to show that off.

  • I don't know.

  • Maybe you want to be different.

  • But I'm really curious about is the new pro models of this variety of products that exists that aren't made by Apple.

  • So let's go ahead and test a few of these.

  • All right, so I have an iPhone 11 pro Max over here.

  • I also have a wireless charger here in order to check which ones wireless charge.

  • So here the black pods also in orange light, which is tougher to see.

  • So those ones they're charging wirelessly the white black pods, same thing orange light comes on.

  • These are the noche ese.

  • A super dim orange light comes on so they're charging.

  • And the air buds pro?

  • Yes, who?

  • And it's also got a really dim, tiny little orange light that comes so they all appear to support wireless charging.

  • I want to be clear as well at this moment before I listen to these things, I am not promoting or endorsing thes products purchased at your own risk.

  • Obviously, the dream of getting an air pod like device for 100 Bucks airpods probe device for 100 bucks.

  • That's obviously an appealing concept.

  • So do your own due diligence.

  • Let's kick it off with the black pods themselves.

  • Oh, okay.

  • Look at that.

  • It's setting up essentially the same way that the Apple branded airpods would.

  • One of the cool features of the official Airpods Pro is that they have these microphones on the exterior of the device.

  • I don't think you're getting any of that functionality here.

  • You're getting a product very similar to their previous product that they did, but in a new format with an in ear style.

  • Let's see if I have audio coming through.

  • I'm getting play pause functionality on the button.

  • If I tap it, it gives me an audio fueling a tick tick like I'm switching modes.

  • But I know I don't hear a discernible difference.

  • I mean, his headphones say they sound all right, though.

  • That's the problem.

  • Just a problem with this is people.

  • What they really want to know is, can I have fully wireless headphones, ear buds that are convenient to pair with my iPhone?

  • Presumably, am I gonna hear what I'm listening and you are?

  • And they don't sound as good as the real deal, but gets a fraction of the cost and people were cost sensitive.

  • So it's easy to understand.

  • Or maybe they want black ones and it's not even an option directly from Apple.

  • You could, of course, go out and get them painted.

  • This is a color where product these air The official airpods to painted black.

  • But that'll cost you even Maur yet they sound okay.

  • I think you gotta adjust your expectations obviously, to go with the price.

  • So next why don't we do this?

  • Is the air buds pro the first product that I am Box Let's see what happens.

  • Oh, okay.

  • Same thing.

  • Now I have to say, man, this just It looks like a sticker that you pew off.

  • Yeah, it's definitely a steak or Jack.

  • You see that?

  • There's no microphone there.

  • Alright, this starts playing right away.

  • Okay, there it responded.

  • Thes Sounds way worse.

  • Way worse.

  • I think a lot of people say that's unacceptable.

  • Actually, that product last up.

  • Here we go.

  • These air called the Noche ese.

  • And interestingly enough, these ones have some details on the inside of the lid.

  • I don't know, Jack conceded there's text up in there.

  • A serial number and a model number.

  • Wow.

  • So those connected real smooth.

  • These are the official ones.

  • Like God.

  • I was gonna say What's going on right now?

  • I hear my surroundings of Mike's air on.

  • They sound good of like, what's happening?

  • I had these two screwed up man.

  • Holy man, I got to say, right now, though, just as the little side note says, We're doing this, the mikes are turned on in the office.

  • I feel so comfy right now on pause, just talking to you, that everything.

  • The whole thing.

  • When I put this on, it all felt super quality.

  • And I say, Wait a second.

  • All right, so onto the last one.

  • This is the noche ese.

  • It's like $95 you say $5 off the black pods.

  • It's the only one where the grill on the side is not an obvious sticker.

  • I still doubt that it's an actual microphone or speaker unit in there or anything like that, but you can see I flip it open right away.

  • Look at this old button, okay?

  • And it's telling me to pinch it to go between modes, but there's no way that's built into this.

  • Come on, Anyway, let's listen to these.

  • All right?

  • Thes one.

  • Sound pretty good.

  • Mmm.

  • Nah.

  • Keyes K p pro.
