It’s just magical like never before

With AirPods Pro Active Noise Cancellation technology, you can immerse yourself into the sound, you will hear what is happening around in Transparency mode, and the ability to choose the right tips in size means that you will be comfortable with the headphones all day. Like AirPods, AirPods Pro magically connects to the iPhone and Apple Watch. Just get them out of the case – and they are immediately ready for work.

Active Noise Cancellation

AirPods Pro – incredibly lightweight noise-canceling headphones. AirPods Pro block out ambient sounds so that nothing distracts you. Active noise cancellation technology drowns out external noise by constantly adapting audio playback to your ear’s unique geometry and tip size. Therefore, you can fully focus on music, podcast or phone conversation.

Transparency mode

Switch to Transparency mode to disable external noise blocking and hear what’s happening around you. Thanks to the outward- and inward-facing microphones, AirPods Pro can compensate for the isolating effect of silicone tips so that the outside world sounds as natural as if you were talking without headphones.

New design and a new comfort level

Three sizes of flexible silicone tips with a conical cavity make it possible to make headphones even more convenient. The tips securely and comfortably hold the AirPods Pro and provide superior sound insulation.

Amazing sound quality

A driver with a wide amplitude and low distortion perfectly reproduces low frequencies. A high-performance amplifier with a wide dynamic range provides clear sound while also extending battery power. And the adaptive equalizer (EQ) automatically adjusts the sound parameters to suit the geometry of your ear, creating a consistent rich audio.

Even more magic

The Apple’s H1 chip allows you to play audio with minimal delay. Using the pressure sensor on the case, you can easily control music and calls, as well as switch from Active Noise Cancellation to Transparency mode or vice versa. The Announce Messages with Siri feature allows you to listen to text messages through AirPods. And thanks to the Audio Sharing function, you can listen to music, podcasts and any other audio together with the other through two pairs of AirPods. Play, watch movies and listen to songs together.

The headphones are protected against moisture and dust according to the IPX4 standard. They cannot be used when swimming, but they will withstand rain or sweat.

AirPods Pro can work up to 4.5 hours without recharging and more than 24 hours when using a case with wireless charging. A five-minute recharge is enough for one hour of listening to music, Apple claims.

    I never wrote reviews, but now I really wanted to do it. I bought these headphones, I really like it so far. Noise reduction is really good, compared to the previous model, the sound is completely incomparable, of course. They sit comfortably in the ear. The switch on the headphones is also well made, does not bother. The only thing is that my head hurts a little, because I'm not used to it (I didn't wear intra-ear headphones for a long time).

    The biggest drawback that I found for myself in the AirPods is the lack of multi-connection. The $160 headphone does not have the multiconnect that even Chinese QCY ($15) has. First, they connect to the entire Apple-ecosystem in one click, but then each time you have to manually switch from iPhone to Mac, from Mac to iPad, from iPad to iPhone. It is very sad if multiconnect is not installed in the "Pro" version.

    The fact that you came up with headphones to a working computer should not cause any reaction. When the headphones do not receive audio, they fall asleep. If the headphones have multiconnect, then any device from the number of paired can wake them up and start broadcasting audio. Headphones without multiconnect, including AirPods, react only to the last device used with them in pair.
