The latest version of Apple’s AirPods Pro received an upgrade during the iPhone 15 event, including the addition of USB-C and several other enhancements. These updated earbuds are now available for purchase, with Best Buy offering a $49 discount on the new AirPods Pro with a USB-C case, bringing the price down to $200. This is currently the lowest price available for these headphones.
The most recent update includes a USB-C port on the charging case, making it compatible with the iPhone 15’s reverse wired charging feature. Other than that, the 2nd-generation AirPods Pro maintain the same design as the original model but have numerous upgrades internally. The updated version boasts longer battery life (6 hours compared to 4.5 hours), improved sound quality, and new features such as Adaptive Transparency mode and enhanced 2X noise cancellation. Along with the USB-C port, the improved model also supports lossless audio with the Vision Pro and has enhanced protection against dust and debris.
With the latest updates in iOS 17, you will now have access to Adaptive Audio, a feature that combines Transparency and Active Noise Cancellation to seamlessly integrate your music with your surroundings for a more organic listening experience. Additionally, you can enjoy faster automatic switching and new mute controls.
We gave the latest AirPods Pro a 4.5-star review, stating that they are the top option for Apple users. Now, with a $50 markdown and a USB-C case update, they are even more desirable.
