AirPods Pro requires Apple devices running iOS 13.2 or later, watchOS 6.1 or later, tvOS 13.2 or later, or macOS Catalina 10.15.1 or later. It is powered by an H1 chip, which “features 10 audio cores and powers everything from sound to Siri.” The earbuds offer support for active noise cancellation, meaning it can minimize background noise and allow you to listen to music at lower volumes. For this, the company says AirPods Pro uses “two microphones combined with advanced software to continuously adapt to each individual ear and headphone fit.”
There is also a “Transparency” mode, which provides users with the option to simultaneously listen to music while still hearing the environment around them. As per the company, the earbuds can deliver four-and-a-half hours of listening time on a single charge with active noise cancellation enabled. AirPods Pro also features a vent system to equalize pressure and reduce discomfort caused by wearing in-ear headphones. There is also a force sensor that makes it easy to play, pause or skip tracks, and answer or hang up phone calls.
