Two objections:

1) The author/tester did not differentiate between the outer-ear earphone (Apple Airpods) and the other "earbuds" he tested, which have to be pushed into the ear canals.  It's an enormous difference.

2) His favorite full-size was a $70 Jabra, and while he listed a $500 Sennheiser way down below the Jabra, it says to me he has no taste for audiophile listening.
