Apple has just released AirPods 3 and Beats is focusing more on the wireless headset market than ever before, with Beats Studio Buds and Beats Fit Pro. But that could actually mean that now is the best time to buy AirPods Pro.
Launched in 2019, AirPods Pro feels as new as ever. Unlike some products that Apple should no longer sell, such as the Apple Watch Series 3, Pro’s wireless headphones are still great, especially when you can get them on sale.
AirPods Pro are the perfect choice for phone calls, have stern touch sensors, and if you care about a great audio experience, you can take advantage of balanced sound with good bass and features such as active noise cancellation, Transparency Mode, and surround sound support to Dolby Atmos.
Of course, AirPods are generally not made for everyone. Some people really struggle to keep them in their ears, as you can see in this survey we conducted with our readers here.
Most importantly, as several years have passed since the launch of AirPods Pro, they are usually offered with some great deals, usually around $ 180 (the official price is $ 249). This makes them very similar to AirPods 3 in terms of price, but with more features.
Rumors of AirPods Pro 2 are good news for those planning to buy the current generation
Rumors about AirPods Pro 2 say that they will be more expensive, mainly because Apple really wants to promote its “Pro” brand and bring them some kind of health sensors.
In an interview with TechCrunch earlier this year, Apple Vice President Kevin Lynch said there was “potential” for AirPods to investigate sensor fusion and provide more accurate fitness tracking and health data.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo have also reported similar things about Apple’s plans to add health features to AirPods Pro, so it’s only natural that these wireless headphones will cost more than their predecessors. And not only that, AirPods Pro 2 should be launched only in the third quarter of 2022.
So, if you don’t care so much about the wireless headphones that accompany your fitness workouts, or maybe the extra battery life that AirPods 3 bring with AirPods Pro, the AirPods Pro is just the right model.
These wireless headphones now have a MagSafe charging case, over 5 hours of listening on a single charge and up to 24 hours when you charge them in their case.
