Apple AirPods Pro 2, AirPods Pro next generation, or AirPods Pro (2nd generation). However you wanna call it, this new TWS earbuds from Apple is an overall upgrade from its predecessor.

The first major upgrade is with Noise Cancellation. There’s been plenty of improvements in this tech in general over the years and that’s coming to the new AirPods Pro 2 as well.

The noise cancellation upgrade comes by way of the new H2 chip. It cancels twice as much noise over the previous generation AirPods Pro. It also improves the audio overall promising a richer bass and crystal clear sound.

You also get personalized Spatial Audio. Using the TrueDepth camera on iPhone, users can create a personal profile for Spatial Audio that delivers a listening experience precisely tuned just for you.

Apple also thought about ease-of-use. You can now control playback and volume without reaching for your iPhone. Simply swipe up or down on the stem for volume control. Press it to play music, answer phone calls, and more, or say “Hey Siri” to make requests hands-free.

Lastly, aside from the case being supported by Apple’s proprietary tech MagSafe, it was also upgraded with a speaker, microphone, and a lanyard outlet for better usage.

Oh and there’s also some personalization options. You can engrave your AirPods with a mix of emoji, names, initials, and numbers for free.

Pricing and Availability

You can order the Apple AirPods Pro (2nd generation) starting September 9. Availability is on September 3.

Pricing starts at US$ 249 / SG$ 359 / ₱14,990.
