The second-generation Apple AirPods Pro are set to go on sale tomorrow, but early buyers have already received them and unboxed them in a video.
The box contains the AirPods Pro 2 headphones themselves, a new charging case with built-in speakers, a charging cable with Lightning and USB-C connectors, silicone ear tips in sizes from XS to L and the usual documentation.
Early adopters confirm that the sound quality of the second generation AirPods Pro has been improved, while at the same time they have extended battery life. Compared with the first generation AirPods Pro, the noise canceling effect is also improved, the headphones support direct volume adjustment by sliding up and down the foot.
Headphones were priced at $250.
AirPods Pro 2 not needed? The original AirPods Pro also got an adaptive transparency mode
Apple has released a beta version of iOS 16.1, which makes available on the original AirPods Pro headphones the adaptive transparency mode introduced in the second generation AirPods Pro.
As you can see in the screenshot, original AirPods Pro users who updated to the AirPods 5A304A beta firmware can now see the Adaptive Transparency Mode option in AirPods Pro settings.
AirPods Pro 2 features a new H2 chip, longer battery life, a new charging case, and a new earbud size to better fit the wearer’s ear. Users can charge AirPods Pro using the Apple Watch charger, MagSafe chargers and Qi-certified chargers are also compatible.
The adaptive transparency mode can significantly reduce the intensity of loud sounds such as whistling or power tools, while still allowing users to hear ambient sound well. It is not known how well this feature will be carried over to the original AirPods Pro, as the original AirPods Pro only had the H1 chip, and Apple has stated that adaptive transparency is provided by the H2 chip. Many AirPods Pro 2 users admire Apple, calling it “obsessed with details.”
Apple iOS 16.1 also includes battery percentage for more iPhone models such as the iPhone 11 and iPhone 13 mini. Apple has changed the battery indicator to a dynamic icon.
Another new Apple product is again completely unsuitable for repair. AirPods Pro 2 got zero points from iFixit
Apple AirPods have never been known for even tolerable repairability, and the new AirPods Pro 2 are no exception, earning zero points from iFixit.
Like past models of AirPods, the new headphones cannot be properly disassembled. To get to all the insides, they simply have to be broken. Of course, this has nothing to do with renovation.
At one time, the first AirPods Pro also got zero points from iFixit, so in this regard, the new model did not become better than the old one.
