Apple Airpods Pro Gen-2 Price in Sri Lanka

The new Apple AirPods Pro Gen-2 Price in Sri Lanka is around 89,300 LKR; you can purchase them starting on September 9.

You can pre-order the new AirPods Pro starting on September 9; they will be on sale on September 23.

Except for the UK, where there is a £10 price rise, this model has the exact same official price as the previous one.

Although both are accessible, the newer model actually costs more since, as was already indicated, the older model is frequently discounted at stores other than Apple these days.

Given the current market, Apple’s decision to maintain the official price is actually more aggressive than it appears because the cost of nearly every other new flagship earbud has gone up.

They are expensive, without a doubt, but many other major players are coming in higher.

Quick Review

Although the price of the AirPods Pro 2 is higher than that of its predecessor, the improvements it offers are well worth the investment. Even if the price tag is too high for you, the fact that they sync up with all your Apple devices with nary a hiccup should be enough to convince you to buy them.

Not cheap at $249 / £249 / AU$399, the new AirPods Pro 2 are in “big present” zone if you’re thinking of buying them as a gift or a long save-up for a good upgrade from your current true wireless earbuds.

Though we need to conduct additional thorough testing to back up our time with them at the Apple launch event, the product on offer appears to be a worthwhile

While still among the best true wireless earbuds available, Apple’s new AirPods Pro 2nd Gen provides significant improvements in use and audio performance.

Pros

  • fantastic audio enhancement
  • major improvement in noise cancellation
  • on-stem volume control

Cons

  • There is no redesign
  • Voltage can be tricky.

The new AirPods Pro 2 may appear to be quite identical to the original AirPods Pro, but there are significant differences that will make these true wireless headphones highly popular.

There are numerous reasons to upgrade from the previous AirPods Pro (2019) here, including the new and significantly improved noise canceling, the additional speakers in the case to make it much more difficult to lose them, and the increased transparency mode to converse with your friends.

However, despite having the same official price as the older AirPods Pro, the older model’s price has actually dropped significantly and will continue to do so until all stock is gone. As a result, if you choose to purchase today, you will have to pay more for the fancier new features, so you’ll have to decide whether you really need them.

You must then be curious about what we think about them. Let’s get started.

Design

Given how much better the AirPods Pro 2 are, the design modifications are minimal.

Rumors stated that Apple’s true wireless earbuds might drop the stems and go for a straight ‘lozenge’ design in the ear, but the stalks remain and are part of the operation.

Except for mics and thin black covers, the AirPods Pro 2 seem identical to their predecessors. You’ll be disappointed if you buy these to show off your Apple goods.

The casing has the same footprint as its predecessors, but there are important differences.

First, the AirPods Pro 2 case has four little dots around the Lightning charging port (which will surely be one of the last times Apple will use this connector).

If you misplace your AirPods Pro 2, you can use your phone’s ‘Find My’ feature to locate them. We lost a similar case for a week since we couldn’t hear it in the house, so this is a good step.

The IPX4 water-resistant case contains a lanyard clip so you can hang AirPods Pro 2 from a bag or strap.

This was a surprise addition based on ‘user convenience’ – if you like to flaunt your AirPods Pro, or want to wear the case around your neck, here you go.

When we initially saw it, we thought it would be a base for a hearing aid, with a microphone for easier dialogue… but there’s no microphone.

Sound Quality

Apple improved the sound quality of the AirPods Pro 2 by adding new drivers, amplifiers, and active noise canceling.

After using AirPods Pro for a while, it’s evident that the audio quality is significantly richer, with more powerful bass.

The rest of the soundscape is vast, but ‘rich’ best describes the new AirPods Pro 2. While it’s disappointing they don’t support lossless music, the sound quality when viewing video or listening to Apple Music was much better than the prior generation (which are still pretty good).

Noise canceling was also remarkable. While it’s still quite good on the original AirPods Pro, it’s been eclipsed by rivals in the three years since debut. But thanks to the H2 chip, you can scarcely detect unwanted sounds when ANC is on.

The result is stunning — if you’re listening to music while someone is talking to you, they’re almost inaudible. Simulated airplane sounds were inaudible.

It makes music more immersive, and Apple’s claims that noise cancellation is twice as effective are credible.

Adaptive Transparency mode

Long-pressing on a stalk during use now lets you hear the outside world.

You can continue a conversation without noticing you’re wearing Apple’s new earbuds, but you’ll sound impolite. Sony does something similar with its over-ear headphones, but it works here.

Apple claims the H2 chip can automatically provide ‘Adaptive Transparency’ So if you’re using Transparency while walking and a siren passes by, the AirPods Pro will automatically lower the sound (in case you need to hear it as a warning).

That’s a big claim that we couldn’t test in real-time.

Stems also add volume control to AirPods Pro. Slide a finger up or down the ridge while holding the stalks to activate the capacitive surface.

Despite being a modest adjustment, this was one of our most anticipated additions, but it’s the weakest. To adjust volume significantly involves multiple’strokes’ of the headphones. Longer strokes would raise or drop the volume faster, or you could stroke and hold for continuous rising and lowering. I apologize for overusing’stroke’

We didn’t have much time to check the AirPods Pro 2’s Personalized Spatial Audio, which scans your head and ear to boost sound. This capability debuted on the latest’standard’ AirPods, and it will be fascinating to see if it works better on the new Pro 2 earphones.

battery life

The Pro 2 earbuds can last six hours with ANC and seven hours without owing to the more efficient H2 processor.

The case can charge the AirPods Pro 2 five times, giving you 30 hours of ANC use, up from 24 hours.

Charge the case with an Apple Watch charger. This seems reasonable, especially since Apple wants consumers to think of AirPods as a vital part of having a Watch, since you can manage music from your wrist.

New Charging Case

The charging case that is included with AirPods Pro has been redesigned to be resistant to perspiration and water, and it also has a lanyard loop so that it can be worn around the neck. Users who have an iPhone that is enabled with U1 can utilize the Precision Finding feature to locate their charging case and receive guided directions. The charging case features an integrated speaker that can produce louder tones, making it even less of a challenge to find.
