The second generation of the AirPods Pro was launched by Apple on September 23. We decided to compare the two earbuds to see which has the edge.

The QuietComfort II earbuds have a shorter, thicker body than the AirPods Pro earbuds, but both have in- ear designs with Silicone tips.

The QuietComfort II doesn't feel secure because they don't move around in the ear, even though they have an excellent fit. We found the AirPods Pro 2 to fit better and were more comfortable to wear.

There is an app that can be used to tailor the sound of the QuietComfort II earbuds, something not found on the AirPods Pro 2. The app can be used with more than one device, and it can be used with the ANC feature.

The AirPods Pro 2 won out for active noise cancellation. The QuietComfort II earbuds are ok, but they are not as good as the Pro ANC. With Apple's new adaptive transparency, it's possible to cut down on loud sounds without muting all background noise.

The MagSafe case that comes with the AirPods Pro 2 is larger than the QuietComfort II case. The earbuds last for about six hours, the same as the AirPods Pro 2, but the charging case adds just 18 hours of battery, compared to 24 for the QuietComfort II.

The QuietComfort II from Bose is priced at $299, so they are in the same general price range. The QuietComfort II comes in black. There is no black option for those who want a sleeker color for the AirPods Pro.

Let us know what you think about the side-by-side comparison of the QuietComfort II and the AirPods Pro in the comments.
