Apple’s recently announced AirPods Pro are now available for purchase on Apple’s site and in stores.
The new Pro model of AirPods feature adaptive Active Noise Cancellation, Adaptive EQ, transparency mode, sweat and water resistance (IPX4), up to 4.5 hours of listening time on a single charge, Siri support and Bluetooth 5.0.
One feature that previous AirPod models have been lacking is noise cancellation. Using two outward-facing microphones, the AirPods Pro detect external sound and then counter it with equal anti-noise to cancel the external sound before it’s heard. The AirPods Pro also feature Transparency mode which provides the option for users to listen to music while still hearing the environment around them.
AirPods Pro are available for $249 in the United States and 25 other countries and regions starting October 30.
