If you are going to buy the second generation of Apple AirPods Pro, you should consider buying them from Amazon. Before the September 23 release date, the retailer priced the headphones at $240, or $10 less than the MSRP. It’s a modest discount, sure, but it’s also not often that you can get new gadgets on release for less than their suggested retail price.
Engadget hasn’t had a chance to review AirPods Pro 2022, but the current-generation model has already earned the score from us in 2019. Building on the improvements Apple detailed at , the new AirPods Pro looks like a solid upgrade. They feature Apple’s new H2 chip, which leads to significant improvements in active noise cancellation performance and a more functional transparency mode, according to the company. In addition, they include touch-sensitive volume controls, a feature absent on the first-generation model. Apple has also improved the playtime with the charging case, which it claims can give the AirPods Pro up to 30 hours of battery life.
