If information circulating the internet is to be believed, then Apple could launch AirPods Pro at a price point of $250. Hints of the upcoming noise-cancelling AirPods Pro were seen in iOS 13.2 beta build. The design looks like a mix of the current AirPods and in-ear earphones. The information comes from China Economic Daily, which suggests that the AprPod Pro could launch in time for the Holiday season and the estimated price point will be about $250.
It is also suggested that the current AirPods will sell in the market and the new AirPods Pro will be positioned as a premium offering to match the iPhone 11 Pro. There is no information on the battery life or features of the new headset.
Apple updated the AirPods back in March with features like a wireless charging case, a new H1 chip, hands-free Hey Siri, faster connection to your iOS devices and longer battery life. Apple claims that the current selling AirPods provide 24 hours of battery life with the charging case, up to 5 hours of listening time on a single charge and 3 hours of listening on a charge of 15 minutes. The Apple AirPods with the wireless charging case sells for about Rs 16,699 in India.
In our review of the second generation AirPod we said, "The new Apple AirPods sound good, not great, but good. While the earphones produce relatively deep bass that's not highly accurate, it handles the highs quite well but the mids are slightly dampened. With a slew of features that will cater to most users’ needs, the AirPods would make an excellent package if it weren’t for the premium one has to pay for them. The value for money factor weighs in heavily as the new AirPods are steeply priced at Rs 18,900 when you buy them with the new wireless charging case. However, buying them with a standard case that costs you Rs 14,900 feels like a better proposition since wireless charging is still a ways away from taking on wired charging and the company is not providing a wireless charger either."
