The AirPods Pro, at first, comes with an all-new design. In fact, the internet was quite busy making fun of the new AirPods Pro looked like something from the popular game Plants vs Zombies. However, the AirPods Pro were massively liked by everyone who got them and I am one of those users too.

AirPods Pro earbuds have silicone ear tips. The old plastic design is gone. These are much more comfortable and super light. Apple has added pressure valves on the front and rear of each earbud. The pressure valves will remove that sensation of pressure from the ears. Furthermore, the AirPods now offer Active Noise Cancellation. There are basically three modes in the new AirPods Pro.

Either you can completely turn off the noise cancellation, you can activate transparency mode, or you can keep the noise cancellation on. In the transparency mode, the AirPods Pro filter the important sounds from the surroundings and let them in.

On Apple devices, users can conduct and ear tip fit test to check the fitness of the silicon tips in their ears.

Both earbuds of the AirPods Pro have a battery life of 5 hours each. The wireless charging case of the AirPods Pro can last for 24 hours. It means that you can recharge your AirPods Pro for about 5 times in the wireless charging case.

AirPods Pro with Android – My Experience

I have been using the original AirPods for almost a year. As soon as the AirPods Pro came out, I got them quickly. I’m not an Apple fanboy, I use the AirPods Pro with my Android phones. The AirPods were quite smooth with all the Android phones I them with. For the AirPods Pro, I was a bit skeptical, not about the pods, but the new features actually.

After pairing the AirPods Pro with my phone, I found that the noise cancellation mode worked perfectly fine. You can switch between other modes too. So, at the time of writing this post, the AirPods Pro is my primary truly wireless pair of earbuds.
