Anyone who has ever endured the jarring experience of getting the cord of their earphones caught while walking will likely show interest in the wireless technology that continues to take over industry products. Painful may be too strong of a word to describe the feeling, but uncomfortable and frustrating are surely appropriate adjectives for most people reflecting on the moment.
For much of this decade, the tech industry was hard at work providing an optimal solution to the problem. Most early wireless earphone models were designed to wrap around the ear to avoid falling out. Similarly, headphones covered the ear and needed to stay taught to allow for people to use them while running. However, Apple sought a different way, as is the company’s M.O.
Just a few years ago, many people speculated as to whether or not Apple’s AirPods would be able to stay put during exercise and, consequently, stick around in the marketplace. The proof has been in the ubiquitous presence of the AirPods in gyms and the general public.
On Monday, Apple released the AirPods Pro, which includes the following new features, according to the website:
Magic like you’ve never heard
AirPods Pro have been designed to deliver Active Noise Cancellation for immersive sound, Transparency mode so you can hear your surroundings, and a customizable fit for all-day comfort. Just like AirPods, AirPods Pro connect magically to your iPhone or Apple Watch. And they’re ready to use right out of the case.
Active Noise Cancellation
Incredibly light noise-cancelling headphones, AirPods Pro block out your environment so you can focus on what you’re listening to. AirPods Pro use two microphones, an outward-facing microphone and an inward-facing microphone, to create superior noise cancellation. By continuously adapting to the geometry of your ear and the fit of the ear tips, Active Noise Cancellation silences the world to keep you fully tuned in to your music, podcasts, and calls.
Switch to Transparency mode and AirPods Pro let the outside sound in, allowing you to hear and connect to your surroundings. Outward- and inward-facing microphones enable AirPods Pro to undo the sound-isolating effect of the silicone tips so things sound and feel natural, like when you’re talking to people around you.
AirPods Pro offer a more customizable fit with three sizes of flexible silicone tips to choose from. With an internal taper, they conform to the shape of your ear, securing your AirPods Pro in place and creating an exceptional seal for superior noise cancellation.
Amazing audio quality
A custom-built high-excursion, low-distortion driver delivers powerful bass. A superefficient high dynamic range amplifier produces pure, incredibly clear sound while also extending battery life. And Adaptive EQ automatically tunes music to suit the shape of your ear for a rich, consistent listening experience.
Cost is relative depending on the individual, so the value of the AirPods Pro will be dependent on people’s personal goals.
