The H2 chip powers a more personalized audio experience with the 2nd generation AirPods Pro with Wireless MagSafe Charging Case from Apple. The chip works with a custom-built low-distortion driver, amplifier, and inward-facing mic in each ear to deliver clear highs, powerful bass, and audio tuned to your ear shape as you hear it. They also usher in a new dimension of sound with immersive Spatial Audio, making you feel like you’re on stage with the band. Other aspects of the AirPods Pro have been upgraded, including ANC with double the cancellation, a transparency mode that adapts to high decibel sounds, and more. With all the reengineered features in the AirPods Pro 2nd gen, Apple takes your mobile audio experience to a new, more personal level.
Personalized Spatial Audio
In general, the ability to produce Spatial Audio is designed to make you feel like you’re in the room with the musician or band, or on stage at a concert, with vocals and instruments sounding as if they are all around you. Spatial Audio with AirPods Pro works on any device supporting Dolby Atmos content. When paired with an iPhone equipped with a TrueDepth camera, this sound can be personalized. The TrueDepth camera analyzes your head’s unique geometry to create a Spatial Audio profile, which can be easily synced across supported Apple devices.
Dynamic Head Tracking
On compatible devices, this feature gives you three-dimensional audio that’s repositioned as you move your head. This equates to a more natural listening experience, and on Group FaceTime calls, it sounds as if you’re in the room with friends and family.
Improved Noise Cancellation
With the 2nd generation of AirPods Pro, Apple doubled the effectiveness of active noise cancellation by using noise cancellation mics along with a rear vent to quickly detect and filter out sounds.
A normal Transparency mode lets outside sound back in so you can have conversations and interact with the world around you. The 2nd generation of AirPods Pro improves this with Adaptive Transparency, which adds a layer of dampening to lower the volume of unwanted high decibel sounds, such as construction sites and sirens.
Wireless MagSafe Charging Case
The included wireless MagSafe charging case has been improved with the addition of a built-in U1 chip and speaker. The chip enables Find My with Precision Finding, which emits a sound to help you locate the case if it’s lost. You can also use Find My with Proximity View to quickly locate misplaced AirPods Pro that are nearby. The speaker also offers all-new tones for other functions, such as when the battery is low or when pairing is complete.
With active noise cancellation enabled, the 2nd generation AirPods Pro provide up to 6 hours of playback on a full charge, with another 24 hours available within the charging case. Charging the earphones is as easy as placing them inside and closing the lid. The charging case itself can be wirelessly recharged via an (optional) Apple Watch, MagSafe, or Qi-compatible charging pad, or with the included Lightning to USB Type-C cable.
Clever touch controls built into the stems of each AirPod lets you control all of the major features while leaving your phone in your pocket.
- Lightly swipe up or down to raise or lower the volume.
- Press the stem to play/pause audio and answer incoming calls
- Hold the stem to switch between active noise cancellation or adaptive transparency modes
The inward-facing mic works with voice enhancement algorithms to better recognize your voice for more natural phone and video calls.
Setting up the AirPods Pro with all of your iOS devices is so easy it feels like magic. Just place the case near your iPhone and tap “Connect” when it pops up. This simple action seamlessly pairs them to your iPhone and every device on your iCloud account.
Share audio from your iOS device between any two sets of AirPods. Bring the AirPods near an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV that you want to listen to and you’ll connect instantly.
When paired with an iOS device, Siri is always on and ready to help. Simply say “Hey Siri” to perform a host of functions on the device via voice commands through the AirPods. You can play music, make calls, get directions, check your schedule, and more. Siri can even read your important messages and alerts to you as they arrive, and you can reply to messages with just your voice.
You can easily and seamlessly switch between multiple iOS devices. So, if you’re listening to music on your iPad, you can switch to your iPhone instantly to use the AirPods to answer an incoming call.
AirPods & Accessibility
