All You Need to Know About the New AirPods Pro
The incredible AirPods Pro, released after much speculation, is perhaps the best accessory launched by Apple yet. With active noise cancellation and transparency mode, you can now experience immersive sound while ensuring that you are still aware of everything happening in your surroundings. The hands-free ‘Hey Siri’ functionality makes it a must-have for all Apple lovers. Here are a few of the commonly asked questions about the latest AirPods Pro.
Do they have active noise cancellation?
Unlike the previous generation of AirPods, the AirPods Pro now comes with silicone tips that fit perfectly in your ears. They come in three variants and help seal the gaps between your ear and the AirPods. By selecting the perfect fit for your ears, you can now experience active noise cancellation with immersive sound. This goes beyond the capabilities of similar products available in the market. Small design tweaks further help the AirPods maintain powerful sound quality and comfort. The amplifier built into the AirPods is highly efficient, helping produce clear sounds while reducing power usage.
What is the transparency mode?
The inbuilt transparency mode is an effect that allows you to hear ambient noise from your surroundings through a tiny microphone that routes the noise and filters it for irregularities while active noise cancellation is still enabled. It is perhaps the most useful feature in the AirPods, helping you stay aware and interact with the world around you. Otherwise, noise cancellation can block out sounds, like that of oncoming traffic, that are necessary to safely go about your day.

Can I use the ‘Hey Siri’ hands-free feature?
With the upgraded AirPods Pro, you can now use Siri in hands-free mode. Siri now comes with inbuilt voice recognition that works with your Apple device to provide intelligent function by recognizing your voice. The AirPods Pro also comes with new features that automatically pause the music when you remove the buds from your ears. Inbuilt sensors help determine the distance and other factors to resume playing when you plug the AirPods back in. The force sensor in the AirPods helps you further by enabling you to just tap to engage noise cancellation or transparency mode, to play or pause music and even lets you control calls.
How long does the battery last?
Battery now lasts almost as long as earlier versions. You can use the AirPods for up to 5 hours without noise-cancellation and about 4.5 hours with the feature enabled. You can use the AirPods for up to 4.5 hours of music playback and up to 3-3.5 hours of call time. The included charging case further elongates the usage by up to 24 hours of battery life on music and 18 hours of call time.
Are there any improvements in the design?
The overall design of the device along with the inbuilt H1 chip is way better than the previous AirPods and makes them highly efficient and performance-centric. The 10 core audio helps in decreasing energy usage while ensuring that all sounds are perfectly processed and delivered with clarity. The internal design follows the external fitness configuration making the whole system feel comfortable with enhanced sounds when used with the well-fitting silicone tips.
