Apple AirPods Pro specifications and features
Talking about the specifications, the Apple AirPods Pro features active noise cancellation, a new lightweight body, and in-ear design. The accessory has flexible ear tips for a secured and sealed in-ear fit. The device comes with three sizes of silicone tips inside the package. The wearable also has a feature called ‘Ear Tip Fit Test’, which uses an advanced algorithm to detect if the wearer has chosen the right-sized ear tip. The AirPods Pro also offers an ‘Adaptive EQ’ function that is capable of fine-tuning the music playback to the shape of the user’s ear. Notably, the wearable also comes with sweat and water-resistant body for enhanced durability.
As per Apple, the active noise cancellation feature on the AirPods Pro utilises two microphones and advance software to remove the background noise. The first microphone of the device is outward-facing, which is capable of detecting external sound to analyse environmental noise. The second microphone is inward-facing to cancel remaining noise detected by the wearable. Notably, there’s a Transparency mode onboard the AirPods Pro, which lets the user listen to the music as well as background noise at the same time.
There’s a force sensor on the AirPods pro, which lets you switch between active noise cancellation and Transparency mode, apart from pausing and skipping tracks or answer calls. The wearable is claimed to provide up to 4.5 hours of music playback and up to 3.5 hours of talk time on a single charge. With the additional wireless charging case, the device provides up to 24 hours of audio playback and up to 18 hours of talk time. Lastly, the AirPods Pro is compatible with devices running iOS 13.2, iPadOS 13.2, watchOS 6.1, tvOS 13.2, and macOS 10.15.1.
