AirPods Pro 2nd Generation

The Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Generation (AirPods Pro 2022) is wireless headphones that were designed, manufactured, and currently sold by Apple since 2022 as part of the Apple AirPods series. The AirPods Pro has been introduced on September 7, 2022, released on September 23, 2022, and its price started at $249.

The AirPods Pro 2022 uses the H2 chip also found in AirPods 3rd Generation that supports hands-free “Hey Siri“. They have active noise cancellation, accomplished by microphones detecting outside sound and speakers producing precisely opposite “anti-noise“. As Apple says new AirPods Pro features 2x better noise cancellation competing with the previous model.

Active noise cancellation can be turned off or switched to “Transparency mode” which helps users hear their surroundings. Noise cancellation modes can also be switched in iOS or by pinching the stems of the AirPods using a new “force sensor“.

AirPods Pro 2nd Gen features adaptive transparency mode, adaptive EQ, personalized Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking, Bluetooth 5.3, touch control, sweat, and water resistance IPX4, Apple U1 chip, wireless charging via Qi charging, MagSafe charging, and Apple Watch charger as well.

Battery life lasts for 6 hours, but noise cancellation, Spatial Audio, and transparency mode may reduce it to 5.5 hours due to the extra processing. The charging case advertises the same 30 hours of total listening time as the standard AirPods case.

Today AirPods Pro 2022 is 22 months old!
