The California based company has recently released AirPods Pro along with a list of amazing features which include transparency mode, noise cancellation, in-ear design along with a couple of tips, wireless charging case as well as water and sweatproof. Now if you are confused about which one you should buy then you have landed in the right place.
Design and comfort
Apple always comes with a unique style and if we talk about AirPods in terms of design, then the brand looks aesthetically beautiful. If you have used the wired EarPods, then we hope you might be familiar with how the AirPods actually look. This is because AirPods looks almost similar to the wired EarPods except for the cables. It sticks with the classic EarPods designs which also means that the AirPods come with modern conveniences such as replaceable silicone ear tips which helps in securing the earphones comfortably in the ears. One can be able to shake his or her head even without the AirPod falling out. On the other hand, with the first glance of the AirPods, you will be feeling extremely light. Yes, they are so light that once it gets plopped into the ears, it is difficult to say that they are actually present in your ears. Not only this it is a lot more comfortable if you compare it with AirPods. Not only this but also the stems are much shorter as compared to its predecessor. There is also a capacitive force sensor in the stem, a small ridge on each of the AirPods Pro where squeezing noise cancellation or transparency mode as well as skip or pause a music track.
If you are a new user, it can be a bit tricky because of the shorter stem which will make it hard to find the ridge and once you get used to it, you will smoothly be able to play, pause or skip music tracks.
The sound quality of the Apple AirPods has full of energy as well as the rhythm to it no matter wherever you are and which type of music you want to play. Not only this but also there is a good amount of space in the soundstage. You will not be feeling overcrowded when you play any sort of instrumental music. On the other hand, the performance of the AirPods Pro s much better. When you are using Active Noise Cancellation, the AirPods Pro is the winner. The output that you will be getting is much clear, crisp, richer and more rewarding. If you want to control music playback and answer to a call, you can use touch controls built into each of the two earbuds stems. The AirPods are also featured with a pair of microphones and they are capable enough to cancel the environmental noise 200 times per second.
As per the connectivity of both products is concerned, AirPods Pro make the use of H1 chip which will be bringing voice activation so the user can say Hey Siri for making calls, turn on music and control volumes. On the other hand, one has to double-tap the W1 chip on the earphone to activate the Siri. Of Course, Android users have enjoyed the feature of NFC pairing for some time and does not feel different when the user pair it with a non-iPhone device. All one has to do is to press the Bluetooth pairing button and once it is done, they work almost identically.
The charging case that you will be getting with the AirPods Pro will be giving you more than 24 hours of listening time once it is fully charged. Not only this but also with each full charge of the AirPods Pro you will be getting five hours of listening as well as three and half hours of usage if you are using the AirPods Pro as a hands-free mic for calling. Apple AirPods, on the other hand, provides 5 hours of battery life once it is fully charged with the help of a charging case. The users can charge up the case through its lightning port and once the case is fully charged, it is capable enough to hold enough power. In short and simple words, the battery life of AirPods is equivalent to AirPods Pro.
Conclusion Overall Apple AirPods Pro wins here. This is because it provides you that premium feel as compared to its predecessor. Not only this but also the quality of sound is impressive and pretty good and is extremely lightweight as well. On the other hand, the original AirPods is a little large in terms of size which does not look fashionable. The hard plastic that it has does not feel much secure at all.
