Recently I reported on in-ear headphones from Cupertino based on rumors and a patent, now they really exist: Apple AirPods Pro. The earplugs with Active Noise Canceling (ANC) were released yesterday by Apple and placed in the shop for a price of € 279. What you can expect for the price and what is so "Pro" about the new AirPods, I have summarized for you in this article.
With the words “This is how magic sounds”, Apple presented the new AirPods Pro in an email to existing customers yesterday. The new wireless headphones with in-ear function and ANC should offer over 24 hours of running time (when using the charging case) and come with three attachments for an individual fit. The AirPods Pro are also protected from sweat and water, so they can function as sports headphones. Due to the new design, the charging case is wider than that of the previous AirPods; But that helps a lot to differentiate between corresponding offers;)
From October 30, 2019, the Apple AirPods Pro will also be available in stores so that you can see, try and buy them there. Incidentally, you can secure personalization via the online store – your name, your initials and/or your telephone number will be engraved. Delivery dates are as of November 6, 2019 (as of October 29, 2019). In addition to the earplugs and the charging case, the scope of delivery also includes the three silicone tips, a LightningUSB-C cable and documentation (quick guide) included.
Active noise suppression is used to block out ambient noise so that you can concentrate completely on music, audio books, podcasts, etc. However, there is also a transparency mode with which you can hear the surroundings ad hoc - so you don't have to take out the earplugs if you have to go quickly. I have listed further technical data of the Apple AirPods Pro below:
What do you think of Apple's new in-ear headphones with active noise cancellation, button operation like on the EarPods cable and ventilation or pressure compensation? Is it THE update for you that the earplug industry needed? Or do you give yourself to everyday life, sport and music enjoyment on the go with cheaper offers like the EasyAcc X100 satisfied?
