Apple’s AirPods Pro are a year-round hot-selling item, but when there’s a big sale, they fly off virtual shelves even faster than usual. With Amazon’s big event right around the corner, those who have been waiting for Prime Day AirPods deals will be ready to jump in, although there’s no need to wait until next week to save.
Amazon has been offering the AirPods Pro at a discount for a while so you can sneak in there and bag yourself a game before Amazon’s annual big sale draws a lot more potential buyers. Although they have been at this price for a while, being able to get a set of premium headphones from Apple at 25% off is by no means negligible.
There are a few things that set the AirPods Pro apart from regular AirPods headphones. First of all, they have active noise cancellation. ANC can block out any ambient and background sounds around you so you can focus on your music, calls, or whatever is playing in your ears at the time.
There is also a transparency mode that allows you to filter out those sounds in case you need to listen to your surroundings for a moment; great if you’re crossing the street while walking the dog or jogging, for example, so you can hear any traffic noise.
The AirPods Pro are also in-ear headphones with three different sizes of silicone ear pads for a perfect fit. Regular AirPods just have a ‘universal’ fit that doesn’t always work for all the different ear shapes out there. The on-ear fit also allows the adaptive equalizer to tune your music to the shape of your ear automatically, providing a personalized sound for each user.
You’ll also benefit from increased water and sweat resistance with the Pro model, with an IPX4 rating that gives you confidence if you get caught in the rain or want to wear them while working out at the gym.
It’s a breeze to set up your AirPods Pro with your Apple devices with one-touch pairing and automatic device switching enabled by Apple’s custom H1 wireless chipset. Touch controls on the ear buds let you skip tracks or answer calls, and you can even use “Hey Siri” hands-free to ask your voice assistant a question. You can also use them via Bluetooth with non-Apple devices.
