Apple has just launched its one of the best things – the rumored noise-canceling AirPods Pro — although not with a product, via a press release. The premium earbuds are all set to release on October 30th for $249. However, they are up for preorder which will start today and are available in white.
AirPods Pro will come with the microphones that detect external sound and the earbuds cancel it out then. It used to here sounds nearly similar to the noise cancellation in the new Beats Solo Pro headphones and Apple says noise cancellation has been adjusted up to 200 times per second as well.
It has a transparency mode that will help you hear the sounds of surroundings while wearing them. The earbuds have a “force sensor” as well that can be used to control music playback and activate transparency mode too. Price will be $249 and it will have a feature called “Adaptive EQ” that “automatically tunes music to the shape of your ear.”
The AirPods Pro are also sweat and water resistant and can be used in gyms as well which include “an expanded mesh microphone port that improves call clarity in windy situations.” But they still charge through the Lightning connector. However, this time they will come with a Lightning to USB-C cable.
AHowever, over-ear headphones from Bose, Sony, and others has begun making its way since long. Sony’s noise-canceling 1000X M3 earbuds cost $229. On the other hand, Amazon’s Echo Buds, with Bose noise reduction (not full-on cancellation) technology which are about to release for $129.99. This have seen a huge rise in popularity since they were first came in the market, so it’s easy to guess that Apple is going to have another smash hit on their list.
