Apple AirPods Pro were just released this week, but now, you can pick up a pair for only $234.99 shipped, this weekend only, originally $249. Unlike its predecessors, this model uses two microphones combined with advanced software to remove background noise and provide a uniquely customized, superior noise-canceling experience that allows a user to focus on what they’re listening to — whether it’s a favorite song or a phone conversation.

The first microphone faces outwards and detects external sound to analyze environmental noise. AirPods Pro then creates an equivalent anti-noise that cancels out the background noise before it reaches the listener’s ear. A second microphone facing inwards listens toward the ear, and then cancels out the remaining noise detected by the microphone. Noise cancellation continuously adapts the sound signal 200 times per second. More information.
