As the new flagship in-ear headphones for the company, Apple unveiled the eagerly anticipated AirPods Pro 2. The long-awaited AirPods Pro second generation was eventually unveiled by Apple after more than a year of rumors. Apple updated nearly every aspect of its internal parts, features, and performance traits, though they did not receive the total physical makeover that some users had hoped for. In more detail, let’s examine what is different and what is the same as the previous AirPods Pro.
Compared to the Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity of the first-generation AirPods Pro, Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity is included with the AirPods Pro 2.
- Battery Life:
The AirPods Pro second generation had a battery life of about 4.5 hours (5 hours with ANC and transparency off), and 3.5 hours of talk time, whereas the AirPods Pro, had a battery life of about 6 hours (5.5 hours with Spatial Audio and Head Tracking on) and 4.5 hours of talk time.
* The AirPods Pro only provided 24 hours of listening time and roughly 18 hours of talk time, whereas the charging case can aid you with 30 hours of listening time and 24 hours of talk time.
- Sound Processing Technologies:
The primary feature that set the AirPods Pro apart from other in-ear headphones on the market was its special sound processing technology. With improved active noise cancellation and enhanced transparency mode, the AirPods Pro 2 now advances with even better-engineered sound processing technology.
AirPods Pro 2: Things that are not similar
The same microphones from the original Apple AirPods Pro are included in AirPods Pro 2. Both of them have two inward-facing dual beamforming microphones.
- Water Resistance
Both the Apple AirPods Pro 2 and the original AirPods Pro are sweat- and water-resistant (IPX4).
- Charging Port
The AirPods Pro 2 still have a lightning charging port, but due to an internal wireless charging update, they can also be charged via the Apple Watch magnetic charger.
