Apple AirPods Pro: Price, Availability
The all-new AirPods Pro will be up for grabs starting from the October 30th in the US as well as the Indian market. Surprisingly, the earbuds still arrive in a single white colour variant. The wireless earbuds are priced at USD 249 for the US while it will set you back around INR 24,990 in India. Furthermore, the product is already up for pre-orders starting from today itself.
As mentioned earlier, AirPods Pro brings with its an improved and refreshed design which now features flexible ear tips. The ear tips are soft, flexible and come in three different sizes. The users can make use of the ‘Ear Tip Fit Test’ which will help you find the suitable ear tips for the best possible audio experience. The next-gen of wireless earbuds also come with a built-in microphone that reduces the external sounds. According to the brand, the active noise cancellation is adjusted to up to 200 times per second.
There is a ‘Transparency Mode’ that allows you to listen to the surroundings while wearing the earbuds. The mode can easily be activated using the Force Sensor located on the stem of the buds. The very same sensor can be used for controlling the music playback and incoming calls. Another interesting feature is the ‘Adaptive EQ’ which, according to the brand, will automatically tune music into your ear. Under the hood, the product is powered by the company’s own H1 chip. Like its predecessor, the AirPods Pro features wireless charging and ‘Hey Siri’ commands for hands-free usage.
Coming to the battery life, the earbuds can last for up to 5 hours on a single charge. On the other hand, the active noise cancellation will reduce the battery backup to up to four and a half hours. To improve the calls during windy conditions, Apple has integrated an expanded mesh microphone. Since the product is sweat and water-resistant, it can easily be used during workouts and the gym.
