Really would love the AirPods but I'm an airline pilot that spends a lot of time going to and from places in the back of a plane. Obviously an over the ear active noise cancelling model QC35...etc would be best but I want something a little more versatile to travel/workout with. I had the PB3 but the posts over the ear got annoying for casual use. The seal was much better for passive noise cancelling than the stock EarPods. May go back to beats X but they were annoying to workout with. Jaybird X3s maybe? The Bose Soundsport Wireless look promising but the reviews I read sounds like it's an open seal that let's in a decent amount of background noise.
