AirPods Pro – Apple’s launch of its first-generation AirPods in 2016 has caused a stir in the world of headphones as it’s a fully wireless and rechargeable headset only through its own enclosure!
Later, most technology companies started launching similar headphones,
which created a great competitive environment! Now Apple has launched its new generation of wireless headphones, AirPods Pro, and as we know that Apple has begun to use the word “Pro” in its products starting with the iPhone 11 Pro.
You should know that this headset does not represent a whole new generation of Airpods, but is just a Pro version that comes with additional features that are not found in previous versions.
We can metaphorically consider the difference between the regular AirPods Pro and AirPods as a close case similar to the difference between the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro!..
Apple launched this headset last October 2019 with an updated design and new technology such as noise cancellation and came in sizes commensurate with ear curves, this is uncomfortable and tight in the installation as it is equipped with flexible silicone heads, relies on an innovative ventilation system to equalize pressure, and enjoys resistance to sweat and water.

Design and use
The first thing we noticed in our early test is that the AirPods Pro are light –
they’re so light that, once plopped into the ears, it’s hard to tell that they’re actually there.
While this lightness is a plus in terms of comfort, it could be a minus in other ways – we could easily imagine a situation where you lose one, and don’t actually realize for a while that they’re not there (except that your music would have stopped playing).
The stems are much shorter than on the regular AirPods,
and where you were able to tap the body of the older AirPods in order to skip tracks
or activate Siri, the fit of the AirPods Pro means that would be a less comfortable experience here.
Instead, there’s a ‘capacitive force sensor’ in the stem, a small ridge on each of
the AirPods Pro, where squeezing said area will activate noise-cancelling / Transparency mode, or skip and pause tracks.
Initially this was a little tricky to get used to, as the shorter stems made it hard to find the ridge,
but after a few minutes it became second nature
Although as the buds are quite compact, it does feel a little like you’re pulling them out your ear every time you activate it.
After a week’s use, we found that it was thoroughly second nature, and there was an instant instinct to play, pause and skip tracks using this method.
works with Qi-certified chargers or Lightning connector
Right, let’s talk battery life: the AirPods Pro’s charging case will give you over 24 hours of listening time when fully charged, with each full charge of the AirPods Pro getting you five hours of listening (that’s with noise cancelling or Transparency off – you’ll get four and a half hours with it on), or three and a half hours of use if you use the AirPods Pro as a hands-free mic for calling.
Up to 4.5 hours of single-charge listening (up to 5 hours when active noise cancellation and sound transparency mode is turned off)
- Up to 3.5 hours of one-on-one talk 4
- AirPods Pro with wireless charging tray
- Listening time of more than 24 hours 5
- Talk time for more than 18 hours 6
5 minutes in the box provides a listening time of approximately one hour 7 or a talk time of approximately one hour 8
These numbers are pretty accurate in real-world use – you’ll never really use the AirPods without either noise cancellation or Transparency on, but when flipping them in and out of the case you’ll rarely hit a dead battery.
Should your new AirPods Pro die on you, Apple claims you’ll get one hour of listening time from just five minutes of charging, and we found that to be a little stingy – chucking them in the charging case from dead yielded 35% battery life, which was a little over an hour’s use.
That charging case is slightly annoying in that it’s hard to know how much juice is left in it. When you take the AirPods out you can head to your iPhone’s battery widget to check out how much power is left, but otherwise you’re left looking at the small LED on the front, which is only ever green or amber.
While we only needed to charge the case twice over a week’s hard use,
we did hit a situation where it was completely dead
it would be nice if there was an early warning somehow.
In terms of charging the case, Apple has unhelpfully put a USB-C-to-Lightning cable in there. Unless you’ve got a new iPhone 11 Pro, or new MacBook, you won’t have the necessary charging block (as there isn’t one in the box either).
AirPods Pro sound Better than Standard AirPods
The first thing you notice about the AirPods Pro is that they sound better than the standard AirPods because they have more bass. The reason they have more bass is largely due to their new noise-isolating design and new drivers that are tuned for that design.
The standard AirPods sound decent enough in quiet places but due to their open design, they just don’t do well when confronted with external noise (the bass frequencies get drowned out). The AirPods’ noise cancellation, which is effective, also helps with external noise, and the combination of the seal of the tips and the active noise cancellation means they sound much better in noisier environments such as city streets.

Tips on using Air pods Pro
In this article, we’ll give you a lot of tips on using AirPods Pro to help you get the most out of it.
AirPods Pro headphones are supported by Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), which blocks the sounds of the outside world so you can focus on what you’re listening to. ANC technology is based on a feature called Ambient EQ, which Apple says adjusts the sound signal 200 times per second to improve sound by using an in-house microphone.
When noise cancellation is turned off, Ambient EQ is also disabled, which means that sound quality is slightly lower. So for the best audio experience with the Airpods Pro headset, it’s best to keep the noise cancellation feature activated.
By default, by pressing and holding the AirPods Pro headset leg will switch between noise cancellation and transparency mode, or you can control whether or not noise cancellation is played through the iPhone or iPad through the control center – press and hold the volume control bar and a pair of earbuds will appear inside to indicate that the AirPods Pro speakers are connected, press noise cancellation in the bar at the bottom of the screen.
Tips Related To Controls Accessories
You can also control Noise Control functions by going to Bluetooth settings and pressing the information icon (i sign surrounded by a circle) next to AirPods Pro. If you’re using macOS Catalina, you can control it from the volume icon in the menu bar.
The AirPods Pro comes with a wireless charging box, and you can charge it on most Qi-compliant external charging platforms. The status of the shipment can be known through this box at any time.
Place the charging tray on its face on the charging platform – the lamp will turn on for a few seconds, then turn off when charging starts.
To check the charging status at any time, click on the charging tray with your finger to light the light.
Note the color of the light: the amber light means it is still charging, and the green light means it is fully charged.
You can use noise cancellation when using only one AirPod Pro, which is useful if you want to make calls using only one headset, through settings — access – AirPods – and then activate Noise Cancellation on One AirPod or cancel noise on one speaker.
Airpods Pro users are able to control noise or turn it off completely from the iPhone control center. But many don’t know they can access the same jobs on an hour, but also.
Make sure the Airpods Pro is connected to your iPhone and play an audio clip.
Lift your wrist to wake up the Apple Watch.
On the playscreen now, press the triangle icon in three circles in the left or bottom right corner as in the image above.
AirPods Pro supports live listening, which uses the iPhone as a remote microphone and transfers what’s going on around the iPhone to the earphones, even if the AirPods are in another room, which is useful if you put the phone next to a collector and the speakers in your ears and you’ll hear clearly what he’s saying directly.
To turn on this feature, go to settings on the iPhone, the control center, customize the control center elements, and then “hear” or ear code and add it to the control center. Play through the control center and do live listening.
If you’re playing iOS 13.1 or a newer version, audio sharing lets you share audio from your device with another pair of AirPods, so two people can listen to music together while playing or enjoy watching a movie on a plane, for example, without disturbing those around you. To run that feature:
- Play an audio or video file on your iPhone or iPad.
- Turn on the control center.
- In the audio play-on shortcut in the control center, click the three-circle triangle icon.
- Bring your friend’s AirPods inside the box near your device and open the lid.
Most important features in this product
A big advantage of this product is the possibility of finding the lost AirPods Pro
If you lose or don’t remember where you are, you can find their location through the Find My app.
Open the Find My app on your iOS device or access it in any browser across the i Cloud site.
Click on the Devices or Devices tab at the bottom of the screen.
and Click on your Airpods Pro in the list.
Click Play Audio if you’re fairly sure the speakers are close to you and you can hear their sound.
If you don’t know where it is, the last place you’ve been contacted will be displayed on the map, click Directions or Directions to get its last location.
One of the additional features added by the company is that you can ask air Pods Pro headphones to advertise your calls
If you get a call on your iPhone or Apple Watch when you’re connected
to Airpods Pro, you’ll cut the ringtone off what you’re listening to.
By: Settings – phone or phone – in the calls section click on call announcement – then select only headphones.
You can check the status of your AirPods charging using The Widgate Batteries, but when you wear AirPods, ask Siri “How is my AirPods battery? You’ll get an individual percentage per headset. If you just open your shipping tray, you’ll get a percentage like that.
You can also check the battery level of airPods with an Apple watch,
whether it’s paired with the iPhone or the watch.
To do this, swipe up on the face of the watch to bring the control center,
then press the battery icon, indicated in percentage.
Your AirPods battery level will be displayed as a loop below the Apple Watch battery ratio,
and if you put the AirPod in its charging bag, you’ll see the overall charge ratio for all.
Reset or set AirPods Pro speakers
If your AirPods don’t work the way they should be, or if you get stuck in them, you should first adjust or reset.
Place your AirPods in the charging box and close the lid.
Wait 30 seconds, then open the lid.
On your iOS device, go to Bluetooth settings and click on the “i” letter circled next to your AirPods.
Click on “Forget this device” or Forget This Device and confirm it.
With the airPods case cover open, press and hold the button at the back of the box for about 15 seconds until you see the light flashing in yellow.
With the caddy cover open, place the AirPods close to your device and follow the steps on your device’s screen to reconnect your AirPods.
From my personal experience of these headphones, there is a personal advice (using one AirPod to extend listening time)
AirPods Pro delivers excellent stereo audio outputs,
designed by Apple so you can use only one of the two
and doesn’t affect sound quality too much as well as extended listening.
Place one of the speakers in your ear and leave the other in the charging box,
the H1 chip will automatically detect which one is in use.
When you hear the low battery tone from the speaker in your ear, switch it with the other.
Continue to switch between them as long as your shipping box has a charge.
Note that when using a single Left or Right AirPod, stereo signals are automatically converted to single output.
At the end of this interview, I would like to show the most important features
and disadvantages of these headphones, which have revolutionized the world of technology.
- Excellent sound/noise insulation
- Pure sound especially when activating noise insulation
- Resistant to water spray and sweating
- Great integration with iPhone 11
- High price compared to previous generation
- The headset is not completely water resistant but only for spray and sweating
- headset is difficult to repair and damage = throw it
- There is no improvement in sound quality compared to the previous version but the sound quality is still excellent!
