I have received the AirPods Pro 2nd Generation today ! I ordered it on the first day it was available to order on Apple web site and also chose to engrave my name and a pair of mouses emoji on it :).
For all the headphones (see here, here) and earphones (see here, here) I bought over the years, the AirPod Pro still remains the one I used most often. Hence buying the AirPods Pro 2 (2nd Generation) is actually the right thing. I have bought, tried and then sold other earphones so many times. Enough is enough 🙂
Unboxing AirPods Pro 2nd Generation
Some simple unboxing photos. Pardon the poor light quality.
You can now recharge the MagSafe Charging Case with an Apple Watch or MagSafe charger. You can also use the Lightning connector or a Qi‑certified charger. You are supposed to get up to 6 hours of listening time with Active Noise Cancellation enabled (which we all do, right). And then up to30 hours of total listening time with Active Noise Cancellation enabled, using the case to recharge the AirPods.
And do you like my engraving.. Cute ? 🙂 🙂
Apple AirPods Pro now comes with extra silicon Ear Tips (XS, S and L). The one you are wearing out of the box is size M.
Of course, if you found one size you liked and need replacement, they are $12 for 2 🙂
The other change (in terms of hardware) is the ability to fix a lanyard to the Megsafe Charging Case.
The lanyard I bought was from Apple Store. I mistakenly thought it was an Apple Lanyard. Nope it is not. It is an Incase Lanyard. Advice ? Go to Shopee or Lazada to find better looking ones (and CHEAPER ones !!).
Other Features of AirPods Pro 2nd Generation
Other features included a new chip that enables “Find My with Precision Finding” for your charging case, so you can locate it exactly. You can also use Find My with proximity view if you lose track of your AirPods Pro (so case is accurate, the AirPods are just agar-agar can find around that area :p).
And oh yes, the case is now a noisy kid…. The case’s built‑in speaker plays sound to help you easily locate it, and all-new tones alert you when the battery is low or pairing is complete. I can even hear it make a noise when I charge it.
