Why any iPhone user should upgrade to the AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C
Apple introduced the USB-equipped AirPods Pro 2 (review) just last year as part of its adoption of the more widely used charging port. This means you can just use the same cable from the iPhone 15 (review) or some iPad models to charge the in-ear headphones, giving extra flexibility and a wider compatibility.
While the new version of AirPods Pro 2 are unchanged from the outside, Apple made some vital enhancements to make them worthwhile purchase, especially if coming from much dated AirPods or other noise-cancelling earbuds. Firstly, they get better dust and water resistance both the earbuds and the case. The second is lossless streaming when you connect the AirPods Pro 2 with the Vision Pro.
Elsewhere, the AirPods Pro 2 retain the exceptional ANC functionality and transparency mode. Plus, the audio quality on the earphones is something that can impressed many users thanks to the accurate sound reproduction as noted by our colleague Antoine in his AirPods Pro 2 review.
There are other features why the AirPods Pro 2 are a great pick compared to many of their alternatives. For example, Apple gave them a very effective spatial audio with head tracking capabilities. There is a Find My support as well that is handy in tracking the earbuds if you happen to lose out of sight of them.
In addition, battery life on the earbuds is more than average, which can last up to 30 hours from a single charge. Unlike many headphones, though, the AirPods Pro 2 can be charged wireless through MagSafe.
