Apple has just updated its official website, launched AirPods Pro wireless headphones that support active noise reduction, this rumored product has finally arrived.
Previously, this product has been “predicted” many times. It is Apple’s third-generation AirPods, with a new in-ear design instead of the classic look that EarPods has used for many years. The in-ear type is mainly to support the noise reduction function to enhance the listening experience. This is also the difference between the two features of the previous two generations.
Although the headphone body looks bigger than the previous generation, Apple claims that the new AirPods Pro, from the comfort and fit, “takes this experience to a new level with a new, lightweight, in-ear earphone design.” Each earphone comes with three different sizes of earplugs to fit the ear shape, allowing for a high degree of tightness while comfortable to wear, which is also the key to active the earphones fit tighter into the ear holes.
To further enhance comfort, AirPods Pro uses a new ventilation system to balance the pressure and minimize the discomfort common in other in-ear earphone designs. And this headset is still resistant to sweat and water (like the previous two generations, Apple still does not specify the waterproof level).
The biggest highlight is active noise reduction
On the headset chip, this product uses the Apple H1, which is the same as the second-generation AirPods, the H1 chip has 10 audio cores, with very low audio processing delay, so in real-time noise reduction, but also guarantee sound quality. Compared with the previous generation, it is more energy-efficient, and of course, supports the functions of “Siri” voice wake-up.
Its active noise reduction function is an algorithm that uses two microphones in combination with Apple and is continuously adjusted according to the individual ear shape and the wearing fit of the earphone. The principle of active noise reduction is the same as other brands in the industry. It also produces reverse sound wave cancellation noise, but the specific method is not the same. It has two microphones to detect noise inside and outside the ear. According to Apple’s instructions, the first microphone uses an outward-facing design that detects external sound waves and analyzes ambient noise.
Then, before these background noises enter the user’s ear, AirPods Pro will cancel it with a comparable anti-noise wave. The second microphone is an introverted design that detects in-ear noise and then AirPods Pro will offset the unwanted noise detected. The noise reduction function continuously adjusts the sound signal at a frequency of 200 times per second.
Apple added a “transparent mode” to the headset, which is to let the user listen to music, while the headset also collects ambient sounds for the user to hear. This usage scenario is common in outdoor running. The transparent mode with a balanced pressure ventilation system and advanced software can partially reduce noise.
And the active noise reduction and transparent mode can be switched at any time, through the innovative force sensor on the AirPods Pro headphone handle. This velocity sensor also supports gesture operations such as playing, pausing, skipping tracks, answering or hanging up calls.
Sound quality can also be adaptive
According to Apple, AirPods Pro can achieve an impressive sound quality through adaptive equalization, which automatically adjusts the low and mid frequencies of the music according to the user’s personal ear shape to create a good listening experience. Customized high dynamic range amplifiers deliver pure, clear sound and extended battery life, as well as custom high-amplitude, low-distortion speaker driver units to optimize sound quality and eliminate background noise.
In terms of battery life, the AirPods Pro headphone listening time can be up to 5 hours in the active noise reduction mode. In the active noise reduction mode, the AirPods Pro can listen for up to 4.5 hours on a single charge and up to 3.5 hours on a single call. With the wireless charging box, it can provide more than 24 hours of listing time or more than 18 hours of Talktime. The current AirPods II product’s headphone body life is also 5 hours, and the new product is only 0.5 hours less in the active noise reduction mode, which is a bit surprising.
