Advanced information is scarce, noting that this is not a new generation of the system, but the redesign of a lighter and cheaper version of the Airpods Pro. Apple keeps two earphones products on the market. The classic version of Airpods, in its second generation, is the recent Pro model. The price difference between the two abysmal versions, of about 120 euros between Airpod 2019 (about 160 euros) and Pro (280 euros).
