Apple has just confirmed the long awaited AirPods Pro wireless headphones with noise suppression, water and sweat resistance and new design. Here’s what you need to know about Apple’s high-end headphones, including the release date, the cost, and why Apple thinks you’ll have to pay a penny more.
Editor’s note: We forwarded the previous rumor article about the AirPods Pro colors and the date of publication to this information center.
Release date and prices of AirPods Pro
On Monday, October 28, it will be announced that the Apple AirPods Pro will be available on Wednesday, October 30 in the Apple Store and Apple.com.
AirPods Pro price
AirPods Pro costs $ 249 and includes a Qi Wireless charging case (for which you must pay extra with the 2nd Generation AirPods). For comparison, the AirPods 2 cost $ 159 without the wireless charger and $ 199 with the wireless charger.
AirPods Pro has a new curvier design – with rubber end caps – that is very similar to the leaky look. Wondering how they will go? Apple will provide three sizes of soft silicone earplugs. Apple says the ear plug offers a comfortable fit and excellent waterproofness.
Apple also offers an ear tip test (recommended in the app) that tests the quality of the seal and determines the optimal size of the earplugs using advanced algorithms that measure the sound level at the ear. using the ear-mounted microphones of each compare it to what comes from the speaker driver.
Apple notes that AirPods Pro are “sweat and water resistant for non-aquatic sports and exercise.” The wireless headphones have IPX4 protection.
AirPods Pro Noise Suppression
The biggest change for travelers is that Apple finally adds active noise suppression. The headphones use two “advanced software” microphones to adapt the sound to your ear and the seat to your ear. With these microphones, Apple can remove background noise,
which solves the main problem of ordinary headphones, where you can still hear almost anything that’s happening around you. You can only focus on your music, movie, phone calls or podcasts.
Apple says that noise cancellation continuously adjusts the audio signal 200 times per second.
AirPods Pro are not the first wireless noise canceling headsets. This would be the Sony WF-1000xM3, which brought to our review 4 out of 5 stars. They only cost $ 228.
AirPods Pro Sound quality and transparency
Apple has added an adaptive equalizer that adjusts low- and mid-frequency audio frequencies to the shape of the ears in which they are located. Headphone technology includes a high dynamic range amplifier and a 20 Hz driver.
Apple’s press release says the transparency mode should help you avoid missing important audio details around you, such as when my commuter train became an express train late at night.
Battery life of the AirPods Pro
AirPods Pro are designed for a listening time of 5 hours and a listening time of 4.5 hours with Active Noise Canceling enabled or 3.5 hours of talk time. This review is a bit disappointing because the AirPods 2 are at maximum after 5 hours of listening. The PowerBeats Pro has a battery life of 9 hours.
With a complete charging box, you extend the battery life to “more than 24 hours of listening or more than 18 hours of talk”. The loading of Qi is standard this time, which goes without saying given the high price.
AirPods Pro – special features
The AirPods Pro offer three other interesting features. Siri and voice-activated audio sharing are transmitted by the second-generation AirPods. There is also a tip called “Announce Messages”, in which the AirPods pronounce the text messages as soon as they arrive.
