AirPods Pro case
The AirPods Pro case is completely different from the original version, with a design wider and shorter than the original version, providing greater versatility and offering additional protection. However, its color remains white, unchanged since 2017.
There are currently two versions of AirPods Pro available. On the one hand, there are the original models with Lightning connection. On the other hand, since September 2023, there is an identical version, but with USB-C connection, meeting the European Union’s deadline in advance. However, both versions have the Qi charging connection, which enables wireless charging through MagSafe technology.
The AirPods 3 are wireless headphones that sit between two lands. They offer improvements over the second generation, but are a step below the headphones mentioned above.
This intermediary situation is observed in many aspects, because they have a design similar to the Apple professional model, but without being the same nor do they include noise cancellation, despite the fact that its design allows some noise cancellation. What they do have in common is resistance to water and sweat, very good sound quality and touch controls on each of the headphones, allowing you to pause the music, change tracks and activate functions with simple gestures.
As for the charging case, there are currently two variants of AirPods, the main difference of which is the MagSafe charging capacity, only available in the more expensive version. However, in both versions the connection is Lightning, which forces Apple to launch a new before the end of 2024.
At the time, the most basic, economical and entry-level version of the AirPods represented a true revolution, where everyone wanted to have Apple’s wireless headphones because they offered a Sound quality similar to EarPods, but without cables and a magnificent wireless connection with our bitten apple devices.
Currently, the first version of AirPods has been discontinued, allowing the purchase of the second generation. The differences between both versions were minimal, the main one being the ability to charge the AirPods wirelessly, while the original version would only allow charging through the Lightning connector. In addition, both models had the option to invoke Siri through “Hey Siri”, as well as the same detection sensors and touch controls thanks to the H1 chip.
Another change related to the charging case is the changing the W1 chip for the H1 chipwhich improved connectivity, energy efficiency and latency compared to the original models
