On Monday, Apple announced its most-refined edition of wireless earbuds yet, the AirPods Pro, and the new offering from the tech giant has already got the enthusiasts (and memers) talking.
Priced at $249 in the US, the AirPods Pro will "soon" be available to the Indian market for a whopping Rs 24,900.
AirPods Pro boast new features such as active noise-cancelling capability, in-ear silicon design, sweat and water resistance, improved battery life among others.

But perhaps what got the Internet buzzing the most was its steep pricing. It's Apple (duh!).

The focus, however, quickly shifted to its all-new design which, for some reasons, reminded the Internet of many, many unusual things.
From blow dryers to Pixar lamp to Pokémon Bellsprout to Pingu - the imagination ran wild on Twitter.

If you're new to the AirPods world, well, Apple's wireless earbuds have often been associated with flaunting one's wealth and their proud owners like to "flex" their "expensive" purchase. Those who simply cannot afford a pair are nothing but broke in the eyes of the Internet.
