I’m gonna start off saying that the noise canceling is amazing ide rate 10/10. Where the problem is is after wear for 3 minutes it begins to hurt my ears dramatically. I tried every tip and none of them work. It seems to be the design of the earbud itself. I’ve personally loved all of apples products but I think they should have worked a little harder on this one. I’ve done research and I’m not the only one experiencing pain. There is thousands who say the same thing. The original AirPods are great and feel amazing in my ears where sometimes I forget I’m wearing them. If you have normal AirPods I would say your better off just using them.
