Until Apple announced the AirPods Pro yesterday, there was only one type of earbud on the market which was both truly wireless and featured active noise-cancelling technology, Sony's aptly-named WF-1000XM3 ANC Truly Wireless Earphones.

So how does Apple's latest rendition of the AirPods compare with Sony's version?

Apart from both being truly wireless and featuring ANC tech, both also support Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. The AirPods Pro, however, don't support NFC, which will slow the pairing process -- especially for users who are connecting their Apple earbuds with an Android or other non-iPhone device.

AirPods Pro review: Apple’s latest earbuds can hang with the best

  AirPods Pro review: Apple’s latest earbuds can hang with the best As true wireless earbuds continue to evolve, companies are making them smaller and adding powerful features like active noise cancellation (ANC). They're more reliable and offer better battery life than when they first burst onto the scene, and they're becoming increasingly popular. Apple clearly knows all of this. The company's AirPods have been the most popular true wireless earbuds for a while now, despite their polarizing design. And even though the company just debuted version 2.0 back in the spring, it held something back for the holidays.

Apple ' s latest AirPods Pro work for both iOS and Android devices, giving everyone a new option for wireless noise-canceling earbuds on top of the incumbent Sony WF - 1000 XM 3 earbuds. In fact, there are only two that I know of: Apple ' s AirPods Pro and Sony ' s WF - 1000 XM 3 earbuds.

The Google Assistant has been integrated into Sony's earbuds, allowing the wearer to get information, control their music, receive notifications and set reminders all with their voice. Apple's AirPods Pro have almost identical features, thanks to the integration of its own voice assistant, Siri.

In terms of battery life, Sony's earphones offer six hours of continuous playback time when the noise cancellation is on and eight hours when the NC is off; the AirPods give users four and a half hours of distraction-free listening time -- five hours with the NC off.

Unlike Sony's earphones which don't have any sort of rating, the AirPods Pro have an IPX4 sweat and water resistance rating which means that they are protected from splashing water. This characteristic is the only one where Apple really has a leg up on its competitor; without a doubt, the AirPods Pro are a better earbud to work out with than the Sony earphones.

Both come with wireless charging cases: the Sony case can recharge the earbuds three full charges (up to 24 hours of listening time with noise-cancellation enabled), and Apple states that the charging case brings users over 24 hours of listening time with Active Noise Cancellation on.

Sony's WF-1000XM3 ANC Truly Wireless Earphones are available for $229.99, and Apple's AirPods Pro will be available for $249 starting October 30.
