The first microphone faces outwards and detects external sound to analyze environmental noise. The Pro then creates an equivalent anti-noise that cancels out background noise before it reaches the listener’s ear. A second microphone faces inwards listening toward the ear, and the remaining noise detected by the microphone is canceled.
The new in-ear AirPods Pro sound amazing with Adaptive EQ, fit comfortably with flexible ear tips and have innovative Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode. We think customers are going to love this new addition to the AirPods family,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
