It is powered by an H1 chip, which “features 10 audio cores and powers everything from sound to Siri.” The earbuds offer support for active noise cancellation that can block ambient noise and allows users to focus on what you are listening to. In order to achieve ANC, Apple says AirPods Pro uses “two microphones combined with advanced software to continuously adapt to each individual ear and headphone fit.” There is also a “Transparency” mode, which provides users with the option to simultaneously listen to music and the environment around them.
