Apple AirPods Pro UK Review: A brilliant set of headphones

Apple has now upped the ante with a new “Pro” version, which adds active noise cancellation (ANC) to an already tempting formula.

There’s no getting around it, though: £249 is a lot to pay for a pair of earbuds. Can these high-end headphones justify the price?

The AirPods Pro are truly wireless in-ear buds that upgrade the standard AirPod design with ANC technology that monitors and filters out external noise. They look different, too: the stems are shorter, and now contain capacitive force sensors which can be used to control playback. There’s also a new set of silicone tips that fit snugly into the ear canal.

Thanks to this, the fit is secure enough for sports, and the AirPods Pro are sweat- and water-resistant, with a claimed battery life of five hours for the buds themselves (reduced to 4½ with ANC enabled) and a further 19 available from the pocket-sized carry case.


Fit, connectivity and design

The AirPods Pro come with three sets of differently sized silicone tips in the box. That’s pretty standard in the world of headphones, but these ones have some nice distinctive touches. For one, the tips click securely into place on the bud, rather than being just jammed on – and if you go to the Bluetooth section on your iPhone you can carry out a quick three-second test to check that you’ve chosen the right-sized tip. It’s a clever trick: a short blast of music plays, and the AirPods Pro will automatically detect if you’ve gone too small or too large.
