The AirPods pro earbuds offer a “significant improvement over the already-splendid first-generation model,” praised David Phelan in his review. “The case now includes Apple’s U1 chip, which means you can use the Find My app on your iPhone, say, to locate it when you’ve misplaced it,” he added. “Though there’s no major design change, except to the charging case, the improvements to audio are worth having.”
They also featured in our review of the best wireless earbuds, with our tester noting they “fit the ear well and stay put securely, and there are now four sizes of silicone ear tips to ensure decent sound isolation”. It “uses the camera on the iPhone to work out what you can hear best from the way your ear looks and can adjust the audio accordingly”. They added that the faster chip in the earbuds has improved the sound quality.
If you’ve been waiting for a price drop, now’s the time to snap them up, as they’ve been reduced to their lowest-ever price. The trusty earbuds are also reduced at Currys, John Lewis and Very.
