AirPod Pro better than its predecessor



On October 30th, 2019, Apple released the AirPods Pro; the most innovative wireless earbuds on the market. Apple used what was good with the original AirPods, and made it even better with brand new features that include active noise cancellation and transparency mode. The AirPods Pro cost $100 dollars more than the original AirPods, but the price seems reasonable because of the improvements added.

Active noise cancellation is one of the most cutting-edge features that have been implemented into the AirPods Pro. The AirPods have an outward-facing microphone that counters external sounds. This is great for listening to music with no distractions and getting truly immersed in the music. The AirPods Pro also includes transparency mode for users who want to listen to what’s happening around them. This is useful when driving, because users can listen to oncoming traffic without having to stop your music. 

These new features can be enabled by using the brand new force sensors that are located on the stem of the AirPods. Pressing down the force sensors once enables the ability to play, pause, and answer phone calls. Pressing down twice allows the buyer skip forward, and pressing three times allows the buyer to skip back. And by holding the sensors, users can switch between active noise cancellation and transparency mode. Overall, the addition of the force sensors allows the consumer to easily control their audio. 

The AirPods Pro have plenty of competition when it comes to the wireless earbud market. The Powerbeats Pro are one of the most innovative and up-to-date products available. The Powerbeats Pro can last up to 9 hours per charge, which is much longer than the AirPods Pro can last. Beats also set themselves apart with an adjustable ear hooks. The ear hooks go around your ear that gives the earbuds a secure fit. The Powerbeats Pro are more suited for someone who enjoys having their earbuds in while exercising, but for the average consumer, the AirPods Pro are the best option. 

With all that said, someone looking for the best wireless earbuds should definitely consider choosing the AirPods Pro. You can’t go wrong with the AirPods simple design and easy to understand controls. And with Christmas coming around the corner, the AirPods Pro are a great holiday gift.
