Along with the new iPhone 14 series, Apple announced the second generation of AirPods Pro yesterday. The design remains unchanged, but the company has upgraded the internals to improve audio quality and battery life. So let’s get into the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) in Nepal.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) Overview:
As aforementioned, the new AirPods Pro has a design that is very similar to its predecessor. It has the same stem style layout and silicone ear tips. While the first-generation AirPods came with three different sizes of rubber tips, there is now a fourth, extra-small ear tip for those with smaller ears.
The charging case has undergone some cosmetic changes, though. It’s sweat- and water-resistant, with a lanyard loop to keep it close at hand. And it also has a U1 chip, so users with an U1-enabled iPhone can also use guided directions to find their case. It also has a built-in speaker, making it even easier to find.
Users can personalize their AirPods Pro charging case with their own Memoji, such as custom-posed Memoji, Animoji, and a selection of stickers.

Let’s move on to the audio, where Apple made significant improvements this year. It’s now driven by the new H2 chip which enables better ANC. Per Apple, the new AirPods Pro cancels up to twice as much noise as the previous generation.
There’s also a new transparency mode that listens for and cancels out any loud noises around you. Like in a construction site, as the company hinted at the launch event.
Furthermore, Apple has equipped the AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) with a new low-distortion audio driver and custom amplifier, allowing the earbuds to cover a wider frequency range. You can now create a personalized spatial audio space to enhance the listening experience.
Moreover, Apple has fitted the AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) with a new low-distortion audio driver and custom amplifier so the earbuds can cover a wider range of sound frequencies. To make the listening experience more pleasant, you can now create a personalized spatial audio space.
This is upgrade over the regular spatial audio feature since Apple says “Users perceive sound individually, based on the size and shape of their head and ears.
As a result, you can now create a dynamic sound space that is tailored to your preferences. In order for this to work, users must first create a personal profile for Spatial Audio using their iPhone’s true depth camera.
Moreover, one major new feature in this year’s AirPods Pro is to adjust the volume with touch gestures on the earbuds stem. While the first-generation model has touch controls, they cannot be used to change the volume levels.
The AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) is claimed to provide 1.5 hours more listening time than the first generation. It totals up to six hours of music playback time with Active Noise Cancellation.
When paired with the case, users can enjoy up to 30 hours of total listening time with Active Noise Cancellation enabled. Aside from wired charging, the case now charges with a MagSafe charger and a Qi-certified charging mat.
