Getting to know the Apple AirPods pro
The Apple AirPods Pro is Apple’s latest and sleekest product. The AirPods have active noise cancellation, transparency mode, which enables you to listen to what is going on in your environment, and a customizable fit according to the customer’s need. Apple refined its product to the utmost comfort level so listeners would feel the music and not the AirPods.
Apple also offers its users the Ear tip fit-test to determine the best size and usability for the right comfort level. These internally tapered tips conform to your ear shape, keeping AirPods Pro secure. And with vents helping equalize pressure, you feel like there’s nothing in your ears.
AirPods Pro is the only in-ear headphones with Active Noise Cancellation that continuously adapts to your ear’s geometry and the fit of the ear tips — blocking out the world so you can focus on what you’re listening to. Battery life is rated equal to the second-generation AirPods at five hours, but noise cancellation or transparency mode reduces it to 4.5 hours due to the extra processing. The charging case advertises the same 24 hours of total listening time as the standard AirPods case.
The case also features Qi-standard wireless charging compatibility. With iOS 14 and iPad 14, Apple added a spatial audio mode designed to simulate 5.1 surround sound. Supported apps include the Apple TV app, Disney+, and HBO Max. Spatial audio requires an iPhone or iPad with an Apple A10 processor or newer.
Support for AirPods Pro was added in iOS 13.2, watchOS 6.1, tvOS 13.2, and macOS Catalina 10.15.1. They are compatible with any device that supports Bluetooth, including Windows and Android devices. However, certain features, such as automatic switching between devices, are only available on Apple devices using its iCloud service. Just like AirPods, AirPods Pro connect magically to your iPhone or Apple Watch. Automatic switching allows sound to move seamlessly between your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac when connected to multiple devices. Noise cancellation is continuously adjusted 200 times per second for truly immersive sound, so you’re fully tuned in to your music, podcasts, and calls. An inward-facing microphone listens inside your ear for unwanted sound, which is also eliminated with anti-noise.
