Apple has made some huge strides with the sound quality on the AirPods Pro 2, adding in new drivers, amplifiers and massively-upgraded active noise canceling – and the effect is pretty startling.
Having used the AirPods Pro for a number of years, it's clear that the audio quality is much richer than before, with bass in particular so much more vibrant.
The rest of the soundscape feels wide and expansive, but 'rich' is the best adjective we can use when listening to these new AirPods Pro 2. While it's sad that they don't support lossless audio, despite multiple rumors to the contrary in the build-up, the overall sound quality when watching video or listening to Apple Music in our testing was a stark difference from the previous model (which are still pretty good).
The other impressive thing was the aforementioned noise canceling. While it remains very good on the original AirPods Pro, it's been overtaken by other rivals in the three years since launch – but thanks to the H2 chip on board, now you can barely hear things you don't want to when ANC is turned on.
The effect is genuinely startling – if you're listening to music while someone is speaking to you, usually you'd hear some part of the conversation, but now, they're practically inaudible. When testing with simulated airplane sounds, they were completely impossible to hear.
Já recebi os meus, não tenho termo de comparação com os airpods pro Gen1 porque não os tive, tenho apenas uns galaxy buds 1, que claramente são muito inferiores a estes. A qualidade de som é bastante boa e o noise cancelling é satisfatório. Não consigo comparar com outros earphones (o noise cancelling), mas em comparação com os Sony WH-1000XM3 que tenho fica bastante atrás, o que é normal.
