Apple has announced a new addition to the AirPods family, AirPods Pro.
Available to order now, AirPods Pro will be released on Wednesday 30th October. The new additions feature Active Noise Cancellation and superior, immersive sound, in an all-new lightweight, in-ear design.
“AirPods are the best-selling headphones in the world. The one-tap setup experience, incredible sound and iconic design have made them a beloved Apple product, and with AirPods Pro, we’re taking the magic even further,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The new in-ear AirPods Pro sound amazing with Adaptive EQ, fit comfortably with flexible ear tips and have innovative Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode. We think customers are going to love this new addition to the AirPods family.”
By opening the charging case near an iOS or iPadOS device and giving it a simple tap, AirPods Pro are immediately paired to all the devices signed into a user’s iCloud account, including iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV and iPod touch.
Each earbud comes with three different sizes of soft, flexible silicone ear tips that conform to the contours of each individual ear, providing both a comfortable fit and a superior seal — a critical factor in delivering immersive sound.
AirPods Pro feature Active Noise Cancellation and use two microphones combined with advanced software to continuously adapt to each individual ear and headphone fit. This removes background noise to provide a uniquely customised, superior noise-cancelling experience that allows a user to focus on what they’re listening to — whether it’s a favourite song or a phone conversation.
A new feature is Transparency Mode which allows users to simultaneously listen to music while still hearing the environment around them, whether that’s to hear traffic while out for a run or an important train announcement during the morning commute.
AirPods Pro will be available for £249 and are available to order from apple.com/uk and in the Apple Store app in the US and more than 25 other countries and regions.
