  • 39

They have taken almost three years to arrive, but they are already here. Apple has just presented the new AirPods Pro (3rd generation) at the ‘Far Out’ event that we are following live in text and on Twitterand where we hope to find great news such as the iPhone 14.

The company trusts everything to improve noise cancellation and autonomy, with small innovations here and there in security, microphones and more.

New H2 chip and internal improvements for an overall package that changes little

H2

One of the great novelties of the AirPods Pro 2 is that they are tactile in a different way than the previous ones. Now we can control the playback volume, as other devices on the market already do. Before there was only pressure control with functions like pausing the music. That is now behind.

The casing is new, although it does not differ much. As for autonomy, now Apple talks about 33% more autonomy, with up to 6 hours on a single charge. The option to find the box with Find My is also missing. Also, in this sense, to this part of the AirPods Pro they have added a new speaker so we can hear it better when we look for it, although it also warns of low battery and notifies when we start charging the headphones, such as the iPhone. So that they do not get lost, the box now has a small indentation to place small strings.

With the new AirPods Pro, Apple has focused on improving what it already had in the AirPods Pro, but without the great improvements that perhaps could be expected after all this time. With the new generation comes the Apple silicon H2 chip. This, in addition to the typical efficiency improvements, allows up to twice the noise cancellation of the previous model, something to which better microphones and better computational algorithms contribute. The adaptive ambient sound mode allows us to hear what we have around us, but without disturbing it, by minimizing sirens and other loud sounds.

The chip is capable of analyzing sound at a higher speed and regulates it according to the shape of our ears. The microphones are now oriented inwards, and with algorithms they promise to better capture the voice in calls, providing less naturalness according to Apple, since a characteristic of these microphones is always a somewhat metallic and canned sound.

Something that the H2 also works on is reducing distortions, improving the depth of the bass and treble with a new amplifier and transducer. Spatial audio has been enhanced with custom spatial audio, which offers a more immersive experience for each person (you can use the iPhone camera in iOS 16 to scan your head and ears).

Alongside the aforementioned 6 hours of playback time on one charge, Apple bumps up to 30 hours of playback time in total when recharging multiple times out of the box. Talk time goes up to 4.5 hours on a single charge.

Speaking of the case, in it we will find new pads of an even smaller size (XS), so that they are comfortable for more types of ears and less prone to movement.
