Following the launch of the latest iPhone 11 series, Apple continues to reveal a slew of new innovations and the latest to join the range is the new AirPods Pro. These sleek earbuds feature an all-new design with active noise cancellation for an immersive sound experience.

“AirPods are the best-selling headphones in the world. The one-tap setup experience, incredible sound and iconic design have made them a beloved Apple product, and with AirPods Pro, we’re taking the magic even further,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The new in-ear AirPods Pro sound amazing with Adaptive EQ, fit comfortably with flexible ear tips and have innovative Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode. We think customers are going to love this new addition to the AirPods family.”

Use the Ear Tip Fit Test function to ensure the best audio experience by identifying the best ear tip size for you.

While the AirPods revolutionised the wireless audio experience, the AirPods Pro take it even further with a new class of lightweight, in-ear headphones engineered for comfort and fit. Each earbud comes with three different sizes of soft, flexible silicone ear tips that conform to the contours of each individual ear, ensuring that nothing falls off when you’re running a marathon or performing your favourite workouts. It also provides a superior seal, which contributes to the overall immersive sound.

The new AirPods Pro also comes with two microphones to detect environmental noise and inbound sounds.

The Ear Tip Fit Test function helps ensure the best audio experience by identifying the best ear tip size for each user. All you need to do is fix the AirPods Pro in each ear, and the algorithm detects whether the ear tip is the right size or has a good fit for you. Furthermore, AirPods Pro also uses an innovative vent system to equalise pressure — minimising the discomfort common in other in-ear designs. It is also sweat- and water-resistant too.

Apple loyalists will also be delighted to know that the Active Noise Cancellation on AirPods Pro removes background noise to provide a uniquely customised, superior noise-cancelling experience — allowing you to focus on what you’re listening to. It comes with two microphones — one is outward-facing and detects external sound to analyse environmental noise, and the second inward-facing microphone listens toward the ear, cancelling remaining noise detected by the microphone.

Switch between Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency modes to be more aware of your surrounds while immersing in great music.

Users can also switch from Active Noise Cancellation mode to Transparency mode. It provides the option to simultaneously listen to music while still hearing the surrounding environment — whether its traffic or an important train announcement during your daily commute. Switching modes is simple; simply use the new innovative force sensor on the stem, which also allows users to pause or skip tracks, and answer or hang up calls. 

AirPods Pro will be available for RM1,099 and are coming soon to apple.com/my and in the Apple Store app.
