Still going to need to block external sound for me. Usually when I am using "phones" I'm doing construction by myself and need noise protection.

Re: AirPods - The Audiophile Review

I spotted the ISOTunes Pro's recently when looking for alternatives to the Airpods:

https://isotunesaudio.com/products/isotunes-pro

They reduce ambient noise by 27 dB, OSHA compliant, 10 hour music/talk time, Bluetooth 4.1+, noise cancelling during calls and more…

Cheers,

Dave

Not enough buttons and they are too small. I wear gloves when working and have to be able to feel the buttons thru the gloves. I also hate multi-function buttons that do too many things.

I use LGTones. Some models are acceptable. Even though they don't block as much sound, they block enough to protect ears from power tool noise.

Apple does not really design for construction type tasks. Fortunately Otterbox and others do.
