AirPods Pro Unboxing Videos: Design, Sound, Ear Tip Fit Test, and More

The first AirPods Pro unboxing videos have surfaced on YouTube from tech reviewers Marques Brownlee, Justine Ezarik, and Safwan Ahmedmia.

The reviewers were all impressed with sound quality and active noise cancellation, with Brownlee saying noise cancellation on the ‌AirPods Pro‌ is roughly on par with the new Beats Solo Pro. As for fit, Ahmedmia found the ‌AirPods Pro‌ with in-ear tips to be more comfortable than the regular AirPods.




Brownlee's video provides a first look at the new Ear Tip Fit Test, a feature that checks the fit of the ‌AirPods Pro‌ in your ear to determine which size ear tips provides the best seal and acoustic performance. Ear Tip Fit Test can be accessed by tapping the info icon next to your ‌AirPods Pro‌ in Settings > Bluetooth.

Apple says advanced algorithms work together with the inward-facing microphones in each AirPod to measure the sound level in the ear and compare it to what is coming from the speaker driver. In just seconds, the algorithm detects whether the ear tip is the right size and has a good fit, or should be adjusted.

‌AirPods Pro‌ come with a Lightning to USB-C cable in the box, compared to USB-A for the regular ‌AirPods‌. Also included in the box is a wireless charging case, silicone ear tips in three sizes, and documentation.

‌AirPods Pro‌ feature several improvements over the regular ‌AirPods‌, including active noise cancellation, improved sound quality, and water and sweat resistance. The higher-end earphones are now available to order for $249, compared to $159 for the regular ‌AirPods‌, with deliveries beginning Wednesday.

MacRumors will have its own hands-on video soon.

At least he seems to be somewhat tech savvy. Some of these others are not.

iJustine just gets on my nerves.

Wow, Apple's gone completely over to the YouTubers for early access. John Gruber et al must be going nuts. Gruber in particular had a cow when the iPhone 11 was released and the little YouTuber's got review units before him.

It's a new era, for sure. Apple will always have their Apple Bloggers and friendly media people, but YouTube is where it's at for new products.

It might sound like sour grapes but when I see people completely clueless about tech getting early previews of products just because they have lots of YT or IG followers I cringe.

The AirPods Pro have the Qi wireless charging battery case, so the appropriate comparison is to the $199 regular AirPods, not the $159 model.

I like her. She approaches it as a regular person, and not a pretentious tech nerd.

i agree to an extent but of all the videos here, she was the only one that took the airpods pro both to a street cafe and an airplane to test the noise cancelation... the others told us how quiet they were while listening in an empty room. so there is that.

No black color option, no buy.

Thank you. I always look forward to seeing why you won't buy a particular Apple product. You never fail to disappoint.

amazing how nobody commits to commenting on sound quality. It's like they are scared of being honest or their own opinion. MKBHD's only comment was not bad. What does that mean? He compared the noise cancellation to the beats but how about the sound quality of the airpod pros. Bass, transparency, even a few sentences would help.
