The Apple AirPods Pro (2nd generation) are “great buds [made] even better” since the previous generation. Some of the best wireless earbuds you can buy, they use Apple’s H2 chip to ensure you get better noise cancellation than before along with more immersive sound. It leads to crisp and clear high notes along with deep and rich bass. Active Noise Cancellation is twice as good as before with Adaptive Transparency allowing you to hear the world around you any time you need to. Personalized spatial audio is better than ever too. Rounding things off well, there’s a decent six hours of battery life with ANC enabled and up to 30 hours in total when you factor in the wireless charging case.

The headphones are comfy too with a knit-mesh canopy and memory foam ear cushions. Up to 20 hours of battery life could be higher but is still pretty respectable and sure to keep you happy.
