Video review: AirPods Pro 2

This video review of the second-generation AirPods Pro was put together by our own Michael Billing (@michael_billig) and published on the iDB YouTube channel.

Michael used to suffer from an issue that prevented him from fully enjoying his AirPods Pro even though he’s a big fan of the product. It’s the same problem that affects a not-so-insignificant percentage of other owners, and now Apple has fixed it with the second-generation model. Read: How to watch YouTube on Apple Watch

AirPods Pro 2: The key features

AirPods Pro cost the same $249 as their predecessor.

The earbuds feature Apple’s new H2 headphone chip that unlocks up to 2x more active noise cancellation and features such as an improved Transparency mode with the ability to create a personalized sound profile for more immersive spatial audio.

The earbuds sport touch controls and longer six-hour battery life, up from five hours before. The charging case has been redesigned and now sports Apple’s U1 chip and a built-in speaker for locating a lost case in the Find My app.

The case comes with a lanyard loop and introduces support for Apple’s MagSafe technology which lets it be charged on the Apple Watch charger. The new AirPods Pro 2 also provide an extra small ear tip for a better fit (you can buy it separately for $7.99 via the online Apple store).
