Apple officially announced AirPods Pro 2. The company decided not to change the successful design of the headphones, so outwardly they can be indistinguishable from the first generation. But there are a number of important changes inside.
AirPods Pro 2 received a new H2 chip, custom drivers, and an amplifier, which together provide the user with clear and highly detailed sound with deep low frequencies. H2 is responsible for the operation of the active noise cancellation system, spatial audio functions and manages the power consumption of the headphones as a whole. And looks like it copes with his tasks perfectly.
Apple claims that the effectiveness of the noise cancellation system has doubled. Improved algorithms cut out more unwanted sounds so you can enjoy your music. An adaptive transparency mode has appeared, which minimizes the intensity of loud sounds (for example, sirens or work tools) to more comfortably hear the world around you. The battery life of the gadget is now up to 6 hours, and together with the case – up to 30 hours. By the way, the case can be charged using a charger from Apple Watch, it has a speaker for the Find My function, as well as a mount to attach it to a backpack or bag. I would also like to note that the headphones received a touch panel on the legs, so now you can increase or decrease the music volume with swipes.
AirPods Pro 2 will go on sale on September 23 for $249.
