It became known that along with the Windows 10 21H2 (Sun Valley) update, which will become generally available this fall, the Microsoft software platform will receive support for the AAC audio codec. This means Apple AirPods and other devices that support this codec will perform significantly better when connected to Windows 10 devices.
In the past, Windows 10 users have often complained about connection issues with wireless Bluetooth headphones. There have also been complaints about the sound quality when using wireless headphones like AirPods.
Windows 10 currently uses the SBC and AptX codecs to power wireless headphones and headsets, but these are often not enough for high-quality audio transmission. AirPods support the AAC codec, so users do not get high-quality audio when connected via Bluetooth to a Windows 10 computer. Windows 10’s AAC support integration will benefit not only AirPods users, but also owners of compatible headsets and headphones from other manufacturers.
According to reports, AAC support is currently being tested in preview builds of Windows 10 (21H2) among Microsoft Insiders. This feature was introduced in Build 21370. This update is expected to begin mass distribution in October / November this year.
9 hours of operation, LDHC 4.0 support and dual driver system. OnePlus Buds Pro 2 earbuds revealed
OnePlus is preparing to expand its range of fully wireless headphones with the Buds Pro 2.
The novelty will differ from many other such headphones in that it will receive dual emitters. The system will be similar to the Oppo Enco X2 TWS headphones, that is, we are talking about emitters with a diameter of 11 and 6 mm.
Also, the headphones will receive support for LDHC 4.0 spatial sound and an active noise reduction system. To implement it, each earphone will have three microphones.
The autonomy of the new model will be 6 hours, and taking into account the case it will be 22 hours. But it’s with noise cancellation. Without it, the performance will be 9 and 38 hours, respectively, and this is quite a lot for this class.
From the rest, we can note wireless charging, support for fast charging, Google Fast Pair, Bluetooth 5.2 and moisture protection (IP55). There is no price data, but the first generation debuted in Europe at a price of 150 euros.
Apple how to understand it? New AirPods Pro 2 are asking for battery replacement as soon as possible
According to some users of the new AirPods Pro 2 fully wireless headphones, from the very first days of use, they receive a message to replace the batteries in their headphones as soon as possible.
According to Mydrivers, the bug triggers battery change notifications from the Find My app on nearby devices when the battery of your AirPods Pro headphones or MagSafe charging case is low.
Since the second generation AirPods Pro uses the U1 chip for precise searching, enhanced Find Me, and transmits battery level information at any time, it is speculated that the erroneous notification may be related to these new features.
The notice urges users to replace the battery as soon as possible, but in this case, according to Mydrivers, it is enough to charge them. Especially since the battery of AirPods cannot be replaced. This notification is similar to the one the AirTag uses when the CR2032 battery is low and needs to be replaced, so the system seems to be confusing the two products.
It’s unclear how widespread the issue is, and Apple has yet to respond. It is likely that the error will be resolved with a software update soon.
Bloomberg: the appearance of Adaptive Transparency Mode in AirPods Pro and AirPods Max is a bug
According to Bloomberg editor Mark Gurman, the Adaptive Transparency Mode feature that debuted on the AirPods Pro 2 wireless earbuds won’t be coming to the original AirPods Pro or AirPods Max.
The adaptive transparency mode setting, which appeared in the beta version of Apple iOS 16.1 Beta 3, according to Gurman, is a bug that will be fixed at the time the final version of the firmware is released.
Previously, AirPods Max and original AirPods Pro users noticed that Adaptive Transparency Mode replaced the original transparency mode setting after updating to iOS 16.1 Beta 3. Apple was believed to be extending this feature to older AirPods.
The adaptive transparency mode of the Apple AirPods Pro 2 wireless headphones is one of their unique features. Bloomberg writes that the original AirPods Pro and AirPods Max won’t have this capability, and Apple accidentally made the adaptive transparency mode setting visible to those devices that don’t actually support it.
With the new H2 chip in AirPods Pro 2, on-device processing technology reduces loud ambient noises such as passing car horns, construction noise, and so on.
