Available October 30th and priced at $249, Apple’s AirPods Pro features Active Noise Cancellation and an all-new in-ear design. Unlike previous generations, each Pro earbud comes with three different sizes of soft, flexible silicone ear tips that conform to the contours of each individual ear for a superior seal, while an innovative vent system equalizes pressure, minimizing the discomfort common in other in-ear designs. Most importantly, they’re sweat- and water-resistant, making them perfect for active lifestyles. Read more for a video and additional information.
The most notable feature, Active Noise Cancellation, uses two microphones combined with advanced software to continuously adapt to each individual ear and headphone fit. This eliminates background noise to provide a uniquely customized, superior noise-canceling experience that allows a user to focus on what they’re listening to. It’s powered by the Apple-designed H1 chip with 10 audio cores that powers everything from sound to Siri. You can expect five hours of playtime, but with Active Noise Cancellation turned on, expect 4.5 hours of listening and 3.5 of talk time.
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.
