Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Gen : Apple Event September 2022
On 7th September 2022, we witnessed the Apple event which was focused on Apple Watch, iPhone, and AirPods Pro. There were many rumors about what to be expected from this September Apple event, but it is always exciting to hear from Official Apple guys about their products. In this post, we will be focusing on all new Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Gen. For iPhone 14 and all new Apple Watch, please refer to our previous posts. So without further delay, let’s get started.
AirPods Pro 2nd generation
AirPods Pro has been re-engineered for even richer audio experiences. Next-level Active Noise Cancellation and Adaptive Transparency reduce even more external noise. Spatial Audio takes immersion to a remarkably personal level. Touch control now lets you adjust the volume with a swipe. And a leap in power delivers 6 hours of battery life from a single charge.
The Core Inside
The new Apple‑designed H2 chip is the force behind AirPods Pro and its advanced audio performance. It works in concert with a custom‑built driver and amplifier to deliver crisp, clear high notes and deep, rich bass in stunning definition, so every sound is more vivid than ever. The brand-new H2 chip carries out more functions than ever, using computational algorithms to deliver even smarter noise cancellation, superior three-dimensional sound, and more efficient battery life.
The chip uses powerful new adaptation algorithms to process sound more quickly, tuning audio at the precise moment you hear it. Every detail is rendered for your specific ear shape, immersing you in higher‑fidelity sound. A redesigned inward-facing microphone works with voice enhancement algorithms to better recognize and articulate your voice, so it sounds more natural when you’re on the phone and on video calls. A custom-built driver and amplifier work with the H2 chip to provide lower distortion during playback, so you’ll hear deeper bass and crisper highs across all volume levels.
A good headphone is never complete without good noise cancellation. We know that the previous generation AirPods Pro already has active noise cancellation but with this 2nd generation AirPods Pro, Apple has taken it to next level. Featuring up to two times more noise cancellation than their predecessor, the H2-powered AirPods Pro is built to let you listen in peace. With control over what you hear and don’t hear, you’ll be immersed in songs and podcasts like never before. With design enhancement, Noise-canceling microphones and a rear vent are now optimally placed to quickly detect sound coming in, working together to counter noise before it reaches your ear. A new driver and improved acoustic algorithms help Active Noise Cancellation reduce unwanted noise, so nothing interrupts listening during your commute or when you need to focus. Along with these design changes, the silicone tips also help in getting you passive noise cancellation by securely fitting in your ear. This year Apple has added an extra Small size as well for the Silicone tips, thus ensuring the perfect fit for a wider range of ears.
The all-new Adaptive Transparency feature harnesses the power of H2 to minimize the intensity of loud noises like sirens or power tools, so you can comfortably hear the world around you. As per Apple, it reduces noise at 48,000 times per second with this Adaptive Transparency feature. There is also an addition to the touch control feature, now you can adjust the volume as well via the touch points on the AirPods stem.
AirPods Pro takes the listening experience to a new level of individuality. Personalized Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking works with all your devices to immerse you deeper in all-around-you sound. And Adaptive EQ accounts for the fit of AirPods Pro, so you hear every frequency just as it was intended. To play sound that better suits your unique ear shape, Personalised Spatial Audio works with the TrueDepth camera on your iPhone to create a custom profile based on your head’s geometry. The profile syncs across your devices — delivering phenomenal sound every way you listen. Dynamic head tracking now brings three‑dimensional audio to Group FaceTime calls, so conversations feel like you’re in the same room with your friends and family. Adaptive EQ tunes music to your ears in real-time, based on the fit of AirPods Pro. Inward-facing microphones measure what you’re hearing, then adjust the low and mid-range frequencies of a song, so you get consistently detailed playback, every time.
Case and Battery Life
The new MagSafe Charging Case is loaded with features like the inbuild U1 chip, that make listening on the move especially convenient. An updated design offers more ways to keep track of the case, and extended battery life lets you listen, watch and talk longer between charges. You can recharge the MagSafe Charging Case with an Apple Watch or MagSafe charger. You can also use a Lightning connector or Qi‑certified charger.
You can get Up to 6 hours of listening time with Active Noise Cancellation enabled for the new AirPods Pro. And with the Case, you can get up to 30 hours of listening time. A new U1 chip enables Find My with Precision Finding for your case, so you can exactly locate it. You can also use Find My with proximity view if you lose track of your AirPods Pro. Also now you have the inbuilt speakers in the case that plays sound to help you easily locate it, and all-new tones alert you when the battery is low or pairing is complete.
Both AirPods Pro and the MagSafe Charging Case are IPX4 sweat and water-resistant.
The all New AirPods Pro 2nd generation will be available starting 23rd September and will be priced at ₹26,900/-.
