Reviews of AirPods Pro 2: ANC improved, excellent adaptive transparency, and useful volume controls ...

The first reviews of the AirPods Pro 2 are here ahead of pre-orders coming to buyers on Friday. These early reviews provide our first in-depth look at the AirPods Pro 2 audio upgrades, the new MagSafe Charging case design, Find My capabilities, and more.

Apple has improved the Active Noise Cancelling feature for CNET while also improving the bass.

Both noise canceling and sound improve; as for sound, you get greater clarity, better bass punch with better depth and dynamic sound. I used a few headphones I always use during testing, including Spoons Knock Knock, but the H2 chip improves the sound quality used (there are no manual EQ settings). The chips increased computational power helps it process and optimize a wider range of frequencies.

The Adaptive Transparency feature, which is an upgrade from the Transparency Mode, was greatly appreciated by PCMag.

The earphones are considered active, semi-transparent earplugs at a concert. Adaptive mode reduces volume in a way that allows you to hear more effectively than traditional ANC mode.

AirPods Pro 2 is as comfortable as the previous generation, according to BGR for the better and worse:

The second-generation AirPods Pro earbuds are exactly the same as wearing the original AirPods Pro, which is a good thing. I find them to be among the most comfortable headphones out there, although preserving the same shape means that they remain as comfortable as before. I even run with them from time to time without issues. These are also a few extra small ear tips for the Pro. I didnt need them and they didnt require them but they were included to ensure that the earbuds fit well in

Toms Guide praises the new volume button, which was lacking in all previous AirPods models:

One problem the original AirPods Pro had that wasn''t often discussed was the inability to change the volume on the headphones. If you wanted to change the volume, you would either need to ask Siri well or remove your phone from your pocket to change it.

The AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) that have improved touch controls that allow moving up and down on the stems to increase or decrease the volume. Outside the volume controls, you may tap the earbuds once to play or pause music, skip or rewind tracks with two or three taps, respectively, and hold to have active noise cancellation.

AirPods Pro 2 has been released, but DigitalTrends insists that it is not a lanyard in the product''s box, as it claims.

Second, the Apple Store''s Find My feature that''s powered by the U1 processor is fantastic, as well as the built-in speaker. But just getting a confirmation tone for wireless charging is worth the upgrade. Second, Apple, you put a loop on this thing, but couldn''t get us an actual lanyard in the box?

Reviewers are pleasantly surprised with the new XS ear tip, although some argue that Apple should include an XL ear tip. Despite the fact that many things haven''t changed on the outside, Apple has done a great job of changing the internals.
