Apple has just revealed the AirPods Pro with active noise-cancellation and an all-new design for immersive sound experience. Rumors have been floating around the internet ever since the new Airpods with a wireless charging case launched earlier this year. AirPods is one of the best-selling wireless earphones available in the market. AirPods Pro will even further the superior sound experience and join the AirPods family. The device requires Apple devices running iOS 13.2 or later, iPadOS 13.2 or later, or the latest software iteration. The company says the devices come with active noise-cancellation, transparency mode, ear tip fit test, and audio sharing.
AirPods Pro – New Design
The new earphones come with three different sizes of soft, flexible silicone ear tips that conform to the contours of each ear, providing both a comfortable fit and a superior seal. The device comes in a new in-ear design to provide active noise-cancellation and great comfort. The device also sports sweat and water-resistant features for active lifestyles. The devices come with a custom high dynamic range amplifier to deliver superior sound quality. To provide a detailed mid- and high-frequency audio, the device comes with adaptive EQ.
ANC, Transparency Mode, and Ear Tip Fit Test
AirPods Pro comes with the active noise-cancellation feature, the first device in the AirPods family to come with this feature. The device removes background noise with the help of two microphones combined with advanced software. Transparency mode allows the user to listen to music and external sound simultaneously. This mode serves as a critical factor while listening to flight announcements or traffic during the commute. The force sensor present on the device allows switching between ANC and Transparency mode. The device comes with an Apple-designed H1 chip with ten audio cores to provide extremely low audio processing latency.
The Ear Tip Fit Test ensures users experience superior sound quality. After placing the AirPods Pro in each ear, the microphones, along with advanced algorithms, measure the sound level in the ear and identify the best ear tip size for them. The device delivers around 24 hours of listening time or over 18 hours of talk time.
AirPods Pro is priced at $249 (INR 24,900) and will be available through Apple Authorised Resellers from October 30th.
