Apple today announced the launch of AirPods Pro to add high-end products to the AirPods family. The new AirPods Pro features “active noise cancellation” and an in-ear earphone design for added comfort. The Hong Kong region officially accepts pre-order today and will be available for sale from the store starting on October 30 (Wednesday), priced at US$249.
Brand new design
AirPods revolutionizes the wireless listening experience with its breakthrough design, and now AirPods Pro takes it a step further, creating a new level of in-ear earphones that are not only lightweight, but also designed for comfort and fit. Soft and elastic silicone earplugs are available in three different sizes on each side, which can be used to close the lines of different people’s ears, not only for comfortable and comfortable, but also for superior fit. The reason why the sound is so pleasing is that this is the key. For the most comfortable results, AirPods Pro uses an innovative venting system for equal pressure, minimizing the discomfort common to other in-ear designs. AirPods Pro is anti-sweat, splash-proof and water-resistant, making it ideal for active lifestyles.
Active noise cancellation brings the absolute field of listening to music
The biggest feature of AirPods Pro is the active noise cancellation function. When it is enabled, you seem to enter an “absolute field”, and the noise outside and the sound on the street are also isolated. And you only hear music.
AirPods Pro’s Active Noise Cancellation feature combines two high-definition winds with advanced software that adjusts to each person’s ear and earpiece size. This eliminates background noise and provides you with a superior denoising experience that is unique and allows users to focus on listening to content whether they want to listen to their favorite songs or make a call.
The first Mio wind is designed to be outward and will detect external sounds and analyze ambient noise. Before these sounds enter the user’s ear, AirPods Pro has generated corresponding anti-noise sound waves to offset the background noise. The second inward-style high wind will listen to the sound in your ear, allowing AirPods Pro to counteract the remaining noise detected by the high wind. The noise canceling program continuously adjusts the sound signal at a frequency of 200 times per second.
Transparent mode allows you to hear ambient sound
The “Transparent” mode allows the user to listen to the music while listening to the ambient sounds, such as paying attention to road traffic while running, or paying attention to the important broadcast of the train when going to work in the morning. With the isobaric ventilation system and advanced software, the “active noise reduction” effect is just right, so that the “transparent” mode ensures that the user’s own voice sounds natural, and the audio continues to play perfectly.
Switching between Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode is as simple as working with AirPods Pro with the new innovative force sensor on the handlebar handle. With the Velocity Sensor, it’s equally easy to play, pause, or skip songs, or answer or hang up. Users can also control the settings by holding down the volume slider on the control center on the iPhone and iPad, or tapping the AirPlay image on the Apple Watch while the music is playing.
5 hours for one charge
On the processor side, AirPods Pro is still using the AirPods 2 H1 chip. The H1 chip is equipped with 10 audio cores, from sound to Siri drive. The H1 chip has a very low audio delay, which provides real-time noise cancellation, and uses adaptive technology to deliver high-quality sounds, as well as responding to your hands-free “feed Siri” instructions, doing it all at once. .
The battery life of AirPods Pro and AirPods is still about the same, the official said that a charge can be used for 5 hours. Even with Active Noise Cancellation mode enabled, AirPods Pro still has 4.5 hours of listening time and up to 3.5 hours of talk time. With multiple charging with the wireless charging box, AirPods Pro can provide more than 24 hours of listening time or more than 18 hours of talk time.
It is worth mentioning that the AirPods Pro’s charging box supports wireless charging, just put the AirPods charging box on the Qi approved charging pad.
The earbud fit test tests the fit of the earbuds and identifies the best earbud size to help ensure the best listening experience from AirPods Pro. With the AirPods Pro in both ears, the advanced algorithm works with the AirPod’s Mio Wind on each side to measure the volume of the ear and compare it to the sound from the speaker driver. Within seconds, the algorithm can identify whether each earbud is the right size and fits the ears, or whether it should be adjusted to create a better fit.
The voice-activated Siri function uses the H1 chip to let you play songs, adjust the volume, make calls or get directions by using the “Siri” feature, all without the need for manual control.
The audio sharing feature lets you enjoy a song or movie with your friends by simply bringing your second pair of AirPods closer to your iPhone or iPad.
The Read Message function is automatically read out for you as soon as you receive the message, and Siri knows that it won’t bother you when you are talking or sharing media content through audio sharing.
