On September 7, in addition to presenting the iPhone 14 and its new connected watches (including the famous Apple Watch Ultra), Apple also announced the AirPods Pro 2, its new generation of high-end headphones.

And compared to the models released three years ago, the AirPods Pro 2 are full of new features: new H2 chip, better sound settings, more efficient noise reduction, or even the new transparency mode which becomes adaptive.

In essence, you have plenty of good reasons to buy these next-gen headphones. However, if you already own first-generation AirPods Pro and don’t plan on buying the newer model, you’ll be pleased to hear that one of these new additions will likely be available on your headphones.

The adaptive transparency mode would not be reserved for the AirPods Pro 2 after all

As mentioned above, the adaptive transparency mode is part of the new features of the AirPods Pro 2. And Apple’s communication suggested that this feature would be reserved for the AirPods Pro 2, which uses a new chip called H2.

“With Adaptive Transparency, this user-loved feature goes one step further. The power of the H2 chip enables on-device processing, which can reduce important ambient noise—an ambulance siren, construction noise, or even loudspeakers at a concert—to optimize the everyday listening comfort”we read in the press release from Apple.

However, by releasing the iOS 16.1 beta, Apple surprised everyone. Indeed, as reported by the iMore site, after installing this test version of an iOS update, users realized that the adaptive transparency mode is compatible with their first generation AirPods Pro.

A priori, when iOS 16.1 is deployed in stable mode, you will not need to buy the new AirPods Pro 2 to benefit from this feature.

What is transparency mode?

While Active Noise Canceling allows you to hear only your music, game, or TV show by eliminating or minimizing external noise, Transparency Mode has the opposite effect. The latter allows you to hear the surrounding noises, while using the headphones.

This is useful, for example, if you listen to music while jogging, because you can enjoy your headphones, while remaining alert to the dangers in your environment (cars, etc.).

The transparency mode already existed on the old AirPods Pro. But during the presentation of the AirPods Pro 2, Apple announced a so-called “adaptive” transparency mode.

The difference is that this improved version lets you hear the sounds of your surroundings in general, but reduces harsh sounds.

Admittedly, the older AirPods Pro don’t match the AirPods Pro 2 with this new feature. But it’s nice to know that despite the release of new models, Apple has not forgotten the users of headphones released three years ago.
