Speaker 1: I am holding two of the best noise canceling earbuds on the market. Apple's Earbuds Pro two and Boers Quiet, comfort Earbuds. Two. I am here in a very noisy London putting these two through some real world tests. Okay, before we start a little housekeeping, both buds are gonna be on full noise canceling to keep things a little straightforward, we'll also be using the same track for consistency, and the volume will be around the 65% mark. [00:00:30] If you wanna see more real world tests, make sure to subscribe. And if you want to know more about these buds, head down to the Lincoln description for more information. Don't forget to leave a like while you're down there too. So the point of noise canceling is to lower the background den of your environment. It's not really made to completely mask voices talking around you per se. Instead, it's a combination of the noise canceling and your music that really cancels [00:01:00] out the outside world. And with that, I'll be doing a little spoken word challenge. I'm going to be listening to some music while Drew over here stands behind me and says a phrase. He'll gradually get closer until I can hear what he's saying. The buds that get him the closest wins.
Speaker 1: [00:01:30] I can't hear you. I can't. I, I literally, you were right here and then I, I heard, but that was it. I'd heard nothing. That was amazing. Impressive stuff. Now let's see how the AirPods do
Speaker 2: [00:02:00] The
Speaker 1: Donkey.
Speaker 1: The the donkey flies by night. There you go. <laugh>. Wow. Okay. You like maybe a step further back. I heard a little and then when you got here, I just about heard it. Just about heard it. So I think that was definitely further away. Yeah, I think the bows win that one. Wow. Uh, I'd say a pretty good victory for the bows there. [00:02:30] I was able to hear Drew's words, just maybe a foot behind me. Under AirPods. Bows have made real strides with adding frequencies, including that of human speech in their noise canceling. So yeah, I have to say this is a resounding victory. Okay, maybe not resounding because it was maybe in just a foot in it, but winner or the boats. Next up, I'm gonna be putting these buds in various situations to see how they stack up against each other. First up a park. So we're here in Regions Park [00:03:00] and as you can hear, there's a little bit going on. You can hear water running from fountains, some wildlife distant traffic in the background. So we'll see exactly how much of that is drowned out by the buds.
Speaker 1: The airports easily eliminate the background noises from the park. I hear nothing of the crowd passing by me, whether it be their footsteps or what they're talking about. And the nearby water fountain is completely inaudible. The airports have handled this [00:03:30] ablely. The bows match the airports stride for stride. Nothing in the park gets through, not the chirping of the birds, the rushing fountain, the lawnmower off in the distance. None of it. Really hard to pick these two buds apart. So that was relatively straightforward for the buds. They ablely handled the environment with a plum, and I think we need to take it up a notch and take these buds to a busy London street. As you can hear, a lot more [00:04:00] going on. You know, the hustle bustled, the crowds, much louder background in and of course London traffic. Let's see how the two buds do here.
Speaker 1: Right off the bat, the bows do a really good job masking all the conversations around me. Cars driving by are or but silent save for the highest pitch squeaks of rusty brakes. But overall, the bows do a near flawless job of silencing this busy London Street. [00:04:30] The AirPods, again, do a great job with the din of this busy street. People walking right by me, talking on their phones work completely inaudible again, only the faintest squeaks of brakes and idle bus engines leak through really hard to separate the two as they both perform admirably. But I think the bows edges this round handling the London streets marginally bad than the airports, but it is close, right? Let's crank it up and pit these two buds against [00:05:00] the underground. Once in full flow, you'd be hard pressed to hear anything on a tube. So let's put these buds together and see how much of the tube they can silence
Speaker 1: Straight away. A lot of the wind noise is greatly reduced with the bows. The announcer's voice only peaks through in between lulls and the music. The hearted clangs of metal on metal persists, but at a greatly reduced level. And the alerts [00:05:30] for when the doors open and close are completely drowned out too. With the airports, it seems to do a slightly better job isolating the louder wind noises, something about the music sounds cleaner. And crispr, which aids in drowning out the turbulent tube environment between the two. I believe the AirPods take this round. Well, that was a really tough test for our buds, but overall, they performed really well under tough conditions. After toting up the results. The overall winner were the bows. They just [00:06:00] did a much better job with urban environments. And not to mention how they performed in the spoken word test. That's not to say the Air airports pro two didn't perform well. They did great at the park. And also were only narrowly defeated by the bows in the spoken word test. So what'd you think of our noise canceling showdown? And what buds would you like to see next time? Drop your thoughts in the comments below and I'll catch you on the next one.
