ADDITIONAL REVIEW NOTES:
Airplane test: Sony = 30, AirPods = 27
Female voice test: Sony = 10, AirPods = 16
Wind test: definitely audible with both, but AirPods were marginally better
Air conditioner test: Sony blocked substantially better. Airpods picked up clicking very well
AirPods are more compressed, so it is hard to tell what you are hearing through them
Quiet room test – they are both dead silent. No hissing or white noise
Apple seems to have a better algorithm, but the Sony earbuds are more powerful
AirPods have a dB limiter – good for concerts?
Sony has some white noise, but I could hear a truck backing up two streets over, so it picks up sounds at natural volumes
Sony sounds slightly like straws in my ears
AirPods sounds like nothing in my ears at all
LDAC vs AAC/SBC
Sony earbuds are clean and detailed with properly powerful lows, an excellent in-app EQ. They gently lift the lows and mids and everything up to around 3k or 4k Hz or so. I think this gives them a warmer tone, but I like to EQ them and lift the highs and drop the mids slightly so they never sound dark. The Sony earbuds have a great soundstage and instrument separation.
Airpods have much less boomy and to some extent, a shallower bass, albeit a massive improvement from the old pros. They still manage to reproduce fairly natural sounding music with little distortion, great instrument separation, and beautiful detail. We still have more emphasis on higher frequencies for more perceived clarity, but they are far from an energetic and lively pair of earbuds. For acoustic music, these are nice, and for podcasts they are great, btu the clear winner here are the Sony WF-1000XM4 earbuds

Future Contribution Of Ink Cartridges in Science
Mankind has been interested in gaining immortality for thousands of years. Medical science seems unable or unwilling to promise eternal life. Many religions, on the other hand, have long maintained that eternal life belongs to Man’s soul. With breakthroughs in science and technology, though, 100 years will soon seem like an incredibly short life span. Scientists are finally conceding that a 200, 500, or even millennial life span is very possible.On-Ear Headphones Buying Guide
