AirPods Pro released on October 30. About two months later, it's a bit distracting to press after a lot of reviews have been published in our magazine, but the good ones are good.
Originally pear, but …
The reason I didn't join the reviewers right after the launch was "I didn't want to buy it." It's been less than a year since I bought the second generation AirPods, and I still want to buy a second one while still active. At first, he wasn't a discerning user who was so particular about sound.
Why did you want to buy it? For one thing, the premise that "AirPods is still active" has become suspicious. Apparently the earpad on the left did not connect well, so I could hear or could not hear it … the ratio of about 1:10 was reduced.
Although not specifically seeking a rich sound experience, AirPods left and right pads are equivalent to buttons such as “ pause / play '' and “ forward song '', so if one of them is malfunctioning you can not operate satisfactorily . It is very troublesome to meet a friend you know while walking on the street, or to be able to stop the sound when talking at the shop counter.
Besides, it was not in AppleCare +. Even if the support and repair fees are not so painful, you have to book a Genius bar. For those who do not want to go to places that are not in their living area, it is better to order a new one on the net …
That's how our magazine's AirPods Pro reviews put the picks on the shaking heart. A quick look at writing Apple-related articles reveals that the voltage of each impression is super high, although the viewpoints are different, such as the first experience of Neucan and the impression from a position familiar with Neucan. No, writing and passionate reviews will stimulate your greed, so it is for those who do not read it.
Ingest information from your ears anywhere with the noise cancellation function
The active noise canceling function, the external sound capture mode that allows you to hear the outside sound while wearing it, and the fact that it is hard to fall out of your ears thanks to the newly designed earpiece are mentioned many times in other people's usage reports, so , I will give the details there.
Any one of these new elements of AirPods Pro is attractive, but in my own use it was "don't miss any one". The reason for this is that what is required of a completely wireless earphone is not that the music playback is powerful or accurate, but that it is a “shooting of information anywhere while walking outside”.
Because it is a junky that can not calm down unless you always take in information, if you do not flow information into the brain even during travel time, you will fall into withdrawal symptoms. Listen to news and talk podcasts, for example. Or keep audiobooks such as Audible flowing. With such usage, MUJI AirPods, which are likely to fall out of the ear when walking a little faster or climbing the stairs, were not a good partner.
Also, waiting for the train at the station platform, you will not be able to hear each time the express passes. You can miss some of the music, but you can only read books and news if you listen to them as a whole.
With AirPods Pro turned on, the noise canceling function turns on the ears, just like the room of the mind and the time, and separates it from the outside world. No, my eyes are confirming the safety of front, back, left and right.

So why don't you need an external sound capture mode? This is super convenient when lining up at convenience store or supermarket cashiers. Indeed, at that time, I switched to music, but lightly press the pressure sensor to stop playback, long press to turn off the noise cancel function. That way, you can flow back to reality from the room of spirit and time and interact with the clerk.
Joy of reading a Kindle book while walking
Earlier, I mentioned Podcasts and audiobooks as uses of AirPods Pro, but the one that is most often used is "Reading Kindle books on an iPhone or iPad and digesting them".
This is a standard function of iOS / iPadOS, and can be used when [Screen reading] is enabled in [Settings]> [Accessibility]> [Reading content].
Then open the e-book with the Kindle app, swipe two fingers down from the top of the screen, and the reading starts. When you learn about this feature, a large number of readers lined up in your Kindle library will all start up as audiobooks …! I jumped.
What's more, the ecosystem makes it easy to connect to existing Apple products, whether iPhone, iPad or Mac. Swipe diagonally from the top right to the bottom to display the Control Center, where you can connect with an audio card with a single touch. If you add the Kindle sync function, you can use the iPad mini to continue the e-book you had previously listened to on the iPhone. Baton relay of audio book is possible!
If you turn on the noise cancellation function, it will become a room of spirit and time everywhere, music, information, and the contents of countless books will flow into your brain from your ears. Just like iPad Pro was "Pro" in the sense that intellectual production could be dramatically more advanced than content playback players, I think AirPods Pro is a Pro among Pros that brings unprecedented richness to the space of ears is.
