The much-anticipated second generation of AirPods Pros is here. During Apple’s Far Out event on Wednesday, the company announced the long-awaited update to the AirPods Pro, which was first released in October 2019. The new AirPods Pro feature an upgraded H2 chip, which was released in October 2019. Apple touts it as offering improved sound quality and doubling the noise cancellation of the original AirPods Pros for more immersive sound.
The good Apple’s new AirPods have longer battery life — offering six hours of listening on a single charge — and 30 hours of listening with the carrying case. The AirPods Pro case can now be charged on the Apple Watch charger as well as with a Lightning cable or a MagSafe charger. The charging case is now equipped with a built-in speaker, which alerts the user when the battery is low and charging. Additionally, the addition of an extra lanyard loop helps users ensure that they don’t lose buds.
The new AirPods Pro take the original Transparency mode and take it a step further with Adaptive Transparency to reduce harsh noises like construction sounds or other high-pitched noises. The force sensor on the new headset has also been upgraded with touch control. That means users can now manually adjust the volume from the headphones, a feature that was severely missing from the previous model. In addition, a new ultra-small eartip is now available to accommodate more people.
The new AirPods Pro will cost $249, the same price as the original pair, and can be ordered starting September 9, with full stock available September 23. (AirPods Pro News World second generation after Apple’s announcement of new product releases Apple Watch — Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra — and iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro.)
And if you don’t mind all the upgrades the new headphones have to offer, the original AirPods Pro are available on Amazon and Best Buy for a hefty $69 discount, reducing them to $180.
