What is your opinion on the AirPods pro’s design? Do you think they are beautiful or do you think they are ugly?

I must say as far a earphones go I think they are gorgeous, the beautiful stainless steel accents at the bottom and the curved design as well as the white colour is so aesthetically pleasing to myself.

I’m interested to hear what you guys think of the design.

They're functional, comfortable, convenient, and they fit in my ears. That's all I care about :cool:.

I mean, aesthetically, I think they are pretty inconspicuous - at least more so than the original AirPods.

They’re the modern progression of the OG AirPods. If Apple wanted to, they can make a non in-ear version of that design. I really like the shorter stem and after using it a while, I find the stem of the OG one too long as it is pressed against my face.

That’s highly subjective.
I find them more “modern” than regular AirPods, and that’s it.

I actually think the white with black spots all over it, like a melted storm trooper, is a pretty bad look.

But as @djr7572 said above, they work very well for what I need them for, so who cares what they look like?

They did a really good job with the pros, same identity as the original, but different enough for people to notice

I don't think it is strange that there are people who care. Earphones are worn at eye-level and thus very noticeable to anyone looking at the wearer. People care a lot about what is going on on their faces and heads - glasses, hairdo, make-up, beard, earrings, pimples... It would have surprised me if AirPods were the exception.

I notice they seem to blend in better with one’s head and a lot less noticeable compared to the normal AirPods.

I don't find them particularly nice looking and the volume of memes indicate people that people are having fun poking fun at that. (I'm not saying they unsuccessful, or do a poor job).

I like the functionality, but visually they remind me of the Imperial stormtrooper armor. Something about the shape and the white/black color scheme.

If they only were available in black. For me the color is the only thing blocking the purchase.
