Design and Feel
The biggest thing about the new Airpods Pro is the design. It’s the earbuds are much smaller than the previous versions, it more compact and they also look way better my opinion. The AirPod Pro’s are now in-ear earphones which a much lighter and comfortable while stay being able to stay ridiculously stable in the ear even when doing intense workout activities. These are one of the most comfortable and least intrusive true wireless earbuds on the market, they fit and contours to your ears like no other.
Comment below and let us know if you prefer the fit of the older AirPods or the newer Airpods Pro.
The earbuds are IPX4 rated which means they are water-resistant against splashes. Keep in mind that they cant be sprayed with a jet of water and they cant be submerged underwater. There are better options on the market when it comes to waterproof.
On each earphone, there’s a very subtle area in black for you to press, its call the Force Sensor. This is what you use to control all your functions. 1 squeeze to pause and play, 2 squeezes skip tracks and 3 to go back. If you hold it down you get and audio prompt informing you that it’s switching from transparency Mode to Active noise cancelling and vice-versa. My biggest gripe with this touch sensor is that it doesn’t offer any way to adjust the volume from the earphones, you have to use your phone. And that fact that volume levels can vary between some audio track and videos, the volume will need adjusting. But luckily you can tell Seri to lower or raise the volume.
You’re able t active Seri even when the phone isn’t nearby. But when it comes to Android you cant active Google assistant through the earphones at all. So that one thing to keep in mind.
Connectivity and Signal Strength
It the AirPods Pro sports the latest Bluetooth 5.0 technology and will cover over 102sq meters in wireless range. There’s is zero to no syncing delays on both Apple and Android devices which make video watching lag-free. These earphones can be paired will multiple devices thanks to the excellent Bluetooth coverage the connection can be switched seamlessly.
Apple is claiming up to 5 hours in battery life per-use. In real-world use, you will get up to 6 hours of playtime and with the included charging case you can achieve up to 24 hours of playback. Quick charging is also available with just 15 minutes in the case you with be able to get 3 hours of listening time. The charging case also offers wireless charging so you are able to wirelessly charge with a charging pad.
The feature works really well. When activated the microphones on the earphones put in outside noise allowing you to hear your outside environment for added safety and awareness. It sounds very natural like your not wearing earphones, it doesn’t sound amplified or artificial at all. This feature can be activated from the earphones for both Apple and Android devices.
Active Noise Cancelling
This feature is pretty impressive. Only the Sony WF-1000XM3 is currently better. But these feature works extremely well, especially when listening to podcasts, watching Netflix, YouTube, etc. ANC doesn’t cancel out everything but for what the AirPods offer, it does a really good job. It cancels out most noise at the coffee shop, most air conditioners, fans, and light breezes.
These earbuds can get loud.
Bass on the AirPods Pro is definitely better than the older AirPods because of its seal. The bass is clean without being flat or too boomy, making it very balanced. The mids are where you hear a lot of the instruments and vocals with plenty of clarity and no distortion whats to ever. The highs present but it lacks that brightness to make the music pop. The AirPods Pro does deliver a very clean well rounded audio signature that most consumers will love. But for me, it doesn’t on anything unique to make the brand stand out.
To Wrap Things Up
Despite the lack of uniqueness in the audio
The Apple AirPods Pro does sound good, it provides a quality experience for everyday use whether at work or commute. If you’re in the market for earbuds that provide you with outstanding sound experience there are better options. But Overall the Pro killer it on performance and function, these are super comfortable and stable in the ears, Bluetooth connections in outstanding and one of the best ANC features on the market for a truly wireless headphone. This is one of the best truly wireless headphones on the market today.
