AirPods Pro – Active Noise Canceling Apple Headphones
28.10.2019 0 Comments
Apple has published on its website information about the new fully wireless AirPods Pro headphones, which received support for active noise cancellation. And unlike the usual AirPods in the insert form factor, the new model is in-channel with a different form of emitters and shorter “legs” in which the microphones are located.
“AirPods are the best-selling headphones in the world. One-touch tuning experience, incredible sound and iconic design have made them a favorite product among Apple users, and with AirPods Pro we take their magic to the next level, ”said Phil Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing.
AirPods Pro uses two microphones and special software that adapts the sound in each earphone depending on the user's environment 200 times per second. According to Apple, the first microphone is facing out and detects external sounds to analyze ambient noise. AirPods Pro then creates equivalent anti-noise to eliminate external noise before it reaches the listener's ears. A second inward microphone listens to the ear, and the headphones cut off the remaining noise.
Another feature of the new headphones, the manufacturer calls the adaptive equalizer (Adaptive EQ), which automatically adjusts the low and medium frequencies of the music to the shape of the user's ear. They also claimed a tunable amplifier with a high dynamic range and a speaker with a low level of distortion, capable of reproducing bass up to 20 Hz.
The active noise reduction system in AirPods Pro can be turned off if desired, in addition, the manufacturer has provided for them a mode of "transparency" in which the headphones will let in external sounds.
The headphones are based on the H1 chip system, first introduced by Apple together with second-generation AirPods, which ensures low delays during audio transmission and supports Siri voice activation.
Like the second generation, AirPods Pro will ship with a Qi-enabled wireless charging case. The autonomy of Apple headphones claims at the same level – up to 5 hours of music playback. But with active noise cancellation a little less: 4.5 hours of music and 3.5 hours of talk. Together with the case, the operating time of AirPods Pro should be up to 24 hours of listening to audio and up to 18 hours of communication.
You can pre-order new headphones in the United States and 25 countries (Ukraine, including, unfortunately, no) today at a price of $ 249 (excluding taxes) or 279 euros, and their deliveries will begin this Wednesday, October 30.
