Apple AirPods Pro offer exceptional sound quality right out of the box. However, it is possible to further optimize its performance and quality through specific adjustments. Here’s what these settings are and how you can try to improve your experience with AirPods Pro.
If you have some AirPods Pro, These tips can help you take your sound quality to another level. It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced user or if you have just set up your first AirPods, knowing these settings is essential for any user.
Keep AirPods Pro up to date
It’s important to check that your AirPods Pro are up to date with the latest firmware updates, as Apple periodically releases improvements that can positively impact sound quality. These updates are usually installed automatically when we also update our iPhone, but you can manually verify their installation by making sure that the headphones are charging near your iPhone with an internet connection through a WiFi network.
Noise cancellation settings
Although it may seem surprising, turning off Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) on AirPods Pro may lead to an improvement in sound quality for some users. This is because the sound processing required for ANC can sometimes compromise audio fidelity. Try the different modes (ANC, Transparency and Off) to find the setting that best suits your personal preferences and the way you like to listen to music best.
Customize the Equalizer (EQ)
Because each person has a unique audio perception, Apple allows you to customize the EQ of the AirPods Pro through the Headphone Accommodations available in the iPhone’s accessibility settings. This feature is useful for adapting the sound to your taste or according to the style of music you listen to most, whether by improving the bass, treble or midrange.
Spatial audio with dynamic head tracking offers an immersive experience by simulating sounds coming from various directions. However, this feature may not be ideal for all songs or in all situations. Check the sound quality with and without Spatial Audio enabled to decide what you prefer.
Perform the pad fit test
This is one of the configurations that most goes unnoticed and that we also have to take into account if we want to make our AirPods Pro sound as good as possible. A proper in-ear seal is essential for an optimal sound experience. Apple offers a ear pad fit test within the AirPods Pro settings that helps you determine the ideal pad size for your ears, thus guaranteeing perfect acoustic isolation and better sound delivery.
Always keep your AirPods Pro fully charged
Low battery may negatively affect sound quality. Make sure your AirPods Pro are fully charged to avoid any loss in headphone audio quality.
By following these tips, you can personalize and improve the sound quality of your AirPods Pro even further.
