The AirPods Pro are Apple's first earphones to feature a noise-isolating design with "three different sizes of soft, flexible silicone ear tips that conform to the contours of each individual ear." Until now, Apple earbuds -- the wired EarPods and totally wireless AirPods -- have had an open design with hard buds that don't seal off your ear canal. The new design could help solve one of the biggest issues with the AirPods -- that they don't fit in all ears securely. Apple also said the AirPods Pro are sweat and water resistant.

Amazon's Echo Buds are an Alexa-powered answer to Apple's Airpods

  Amazon's Echo Buds are an Alexa-powered answer to Apple's Airpods Apple has proven that combining true wireless earbuds with always on access to a virtual assistant can be a reliable recipe for success. Its Airpods continue to be the best selling option, even as the true wireless scene really starts to take off. So, it's no surprise then that Amazon is looking to cash in. Its Echo Buds don't look terribly different from the competition. But they do allow you to talk to Alexa without touching a button -- basically it's an Echo you shove in your ears. One thing the Echo Buds definitely have over their Apple competitors though, is noise cancellation.

The new models feature a completely overhauled design, with flexible silicone ear tips that are meant to provide a The highlight of these AirPods might be Transparency mode, which “provides users with the You can order AirPods Pro right now on Apple.com for $ 249 , with shipments slated to begin on

They should sound significantly better, with improved bass performance. With an open design, you tend to lose some bass, particularly outdoors in noisier environments. And Apple said the Pro's Adaptive EQ "tunes music to the shape of your ear for a rich, consistent listening experience."

Like Sony's WF-1000XM3, the AirPods Pro have adaptive active noise-cancelling as well as a Transparency Mode that allows sound to leak in while you're listening to audio so you can hear traffic around you or train announcements. Apple said the Pro's noise cancellation "continuously adapts the sound signal 200 times per second."

Apple's $249 AirPods Pro pack noise cancellation and hands-free Siri

  Apple's $249 AirPods Pro pack noise cancellation and hands-free Siri After months of rumors, Apple didn't wait until its next event to reveal the new version of its AirPods. Officially called AirPods Pro, the new model offers active noise cancellation and hands-free access to Siri for $249. The biggest change in terms of design is the addition of silicone ear tips that offer a better seal. This is essential for noise-cancelling earbuds, and it's also a tweak that was tipped in an iOS 13 beta. Apple says theApple says the AirPods Pro offer "superior sound quality" with audio feature called Adaptive EQ. According to the company, the tool "automatically tunes" low and mid-range frequencies to suit each person's ears.

The AirPods Pro employs two microphones on each earbud and software that continuously adapts the level of Like many noise-cancelling audio accessories, the AirPods Pro have a transparency mode for when you need to They'll be available from Apple's website and at the company's retail locations.

To switch between the two modes -- noise cancellation and Transparency -- AirPods Pro features a new "force sensor" on the stem of the earbuds (you pinch the stem between your fingers to switch modes). This will also allow people to play, pause or skip music, as well as hang up on phone calls, directly on the AirPods Pro.

Like the earlier AirPods and Beats Powerbeats Pro and Beats Solo Pro, this model is equipped with Apple's H1 chip and also features always-on voice recognition, which lets you say "Hey Siri," to summon the digital assistant. Apple owns Beats and this model will compete directly with the popular Powerbeats Pro, which lists for $250 but has recently been on sale for $200.

According to Apple, the AirPods Pro have the same battery life as AirPods, with up to five hours of listening time on a single charge. In active noise cancellation mode, the AirPods Pro will deliver up to four and a half hours of listening. Some new true wireless ear buds with active noise-cancelling, such as the Master & Dynamic MW07 ($300), deliver significantly better battery life.

The $249 price tag includes a wireless charging case, which charges on any Qi-compatible charging mat. The AirPods Pro require a device running iOS 13.2 or later, iPadOS 13.2 or later, WatchOS 6.1 or later, TVOS 13.2 or later or MacOS Catalina 10.15.1 or later.
