Waiting Over: Apple Announces AirPods Pro

Confirming numerous rumors of recent days, Apple has just announced the AirPods Pro and, as expected, they come in as a new member of the "family," bringing active noise cancellation and a promise of sound superior to the normal model.

The final design right inside what was recently leaked, that is, we are talking about headphones like intra headset (with a part that enters the ear canal). In the product box, there will be three different sizes small, medium and large of the silicone tip, which in itself provides good sound insulation.

“AirPods are the best selling headphones in the world. The one-touch configuration experience, amazing sound and iconic design have made it an admired Apple product, and with the AirPods Pro, we're taking the magic forward, ”he said. Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple. “The new In-Ear AirPods Pro deliver sensational sound with adaptive equalizer, are very comfortable with flexible tips, and bring innovative active noise and transparency cancellation modes. We think consumers will love this new addition to the AirPods family. ”

Apple says the New design AirPods Pro not only provides added comfort, as does a new venting system to equalize the pressure commonly felt in other in-ear headsets. They are also sweat and water resistant (IPX4 rating).

The technology of active noise cancellation AirPods Pro uses two microphones combined with state-of-the-art software that works in real time analyzing the environment in which one finds oneself. This analysis occurs 200 times per second, according to Apple.

In the opposite situation, anyone in an environment that needs attention can activate the transparency mode which keeps playing music or calls on AirPods Pro, but picks up all the sound around you (very suitable for those who use headphones walking on the street, for example). Switching between the two modes is quite simple: just press and hold the AirPods Pro “little leg,” which can also be used to control track playback or answer calls.

THE system-in-package (SiP) of AirPods Pro has the chip H1 at its core, being the brain of operation of all the technology embedded in the product including always listening to the command "And, Siri", one of the news that came a few months ago with the second generation AirPods.

Apple promises the “same great battery life” of the AirPods, that is, 5 hours of music playback. With active noise cancellation enabled, it will be 4h30 playback and up to 3h30 conversation. Their wireless charging case provides up to an extra 24 hours of playback or 18 hours of talk time. And, it is worth noting, the cable included with the product now Lightning for USB-C.

On top of that, Apple says the AirPods Pro will have a kind of test for the user to determine which size of silicone tip is best suited for their ear and they obviously support the newly released audio sharing feature. With iOS 13.2, they will be able to announce and read messages as they arrive.
