Apple equips several new things on the AirPods Pro 2 to make it a better experience, but for now, what we’ll see are the exterior changes. Internal changes don’t easily make a difference, and it takes more time to feel. Please take a look at AirPods Pro 2 hands-on and first impression.
New is the integrated U1 chip in the charging case to be precisely located with an iPhone. The new Air Pods Pro 2’s charging case comes with integrated speakers that allow a sound to be played to help locate the charging case.
Specifically, when you get up to leave the place and forget your AirPods or your case, your iPhone or Apple Watch will tell you to know that you forgot it, and now you’re far from it. A few dozen meters away, and when you come back, you can’t remember where you left your AirPods or if someone took them for you. So you open the app on your iPhone and press the button for the AirPods to ring and then find it, this upgrade is much more practical than other upgrades.
Case with hook
This is another practical upgrade in which you can attach your charging case with your favorite keychain or attach a wristband and anti-lost strap to it without having to use an extra cover or leather case. All handheld devices should have this hook, which is safer and more convenient than not having one.
More ear tips and create individual Sound Profiles
In the box of Apple AirPods Pro 2, there will be four sets of ear tips instead of the usual three. Thus, the possibility of it being suitable for more of your ears.
Apple also has the feature of using Face ID’s 3D depth camera to measure the shape and size of the ear to give a separate Spacial sound profile for each person.
Extra Microphone to prevent noise and listen better
Apple equips an additional mic as well as uses their data stores and machine learning to offer better noise on AirPods Pro 2, which they say is 2 times better than the previous generation. The Mic and machine learning parts are not only noise-canceling but also for the ear’s ability to hear through and automatically.
Added swipe control
So far, we clicked on the stems for various commands and it has good haptic feedback. Now the stems of the Airpods Pro 2 are also touch-sensitive, so it’s possible to control volume, for example, by touching the earbuds with a swipe gesture.
In our opinion, it is very convenient to hear, but in practice, it will not be because when we swipe, we will touch the ear, and you know that the ear is covered with earphones, but touching the ear when wearing it is very sensitive. We will discuss more on it in our detailed review soon.
The Apple AirPods Pro 2 rely on a design that corresponds almost exactly to the older AirPods Pro. However, practically everything changes in terms of technology, starting with the Apple H2 ARM SoC, which offers a more stable Bluetooth connection and better active noise cancellation (ANC), which is said to filter out disturbing ambient noise twice as much as in the previous model. New drivers should ensure significantly better sound quality.
Also new is “Adaptive Transparency”, a transparency mode that analyzes ambient noise 48,000 times per second to automatically adjust behavior – for example, construction site noise can also be filtered out in transparency mode.
The battery now lasts 33 percent longer on a charge than the first-generation AirPods Pro (REVIEW), for a total of six hours with noise canceling enabled, and adding the charging case increases the runtime by six hours to a total of 30 hours.
