First of all! Please take care of your ears and don't learn from me.
Although I ordered AirPods Pro the first time, I missed its express delivery perfectly because of a business trip. After returning to the company three days later, I can't wait to 'grab' it from @who is the big hero who just wrote the hands-on experience.
Due to work reasons, I have come into contact with many true wireless headphones. Personally, I think AirPods Pro is one of the best wearing comforts. In addition, AirPods Pro has a battery life of 24 hours (including the charging box), and I have an idea : Would you like to change your gameplay this time and have a 24-hour 'marathon' product experience?
So starting at zero o'clock on Monday, I tried to wear AirPods Pro for 24 hours continuously, including sleeping, going to work and eating. After such a continuous and long experience, I also have a lot of new views on this product. If you are still hesitant to buy AirPods Pro, I hope this article can help you.
PS. This experience is purely “troubleshooting” for myself, and I recommend that you do n’t wear headphones for a long time in your daily life to protect your hearing.
Treatment of 'Mingxing Star' in True Wireless
First of all, please forgive me for a bit of 'Title Party', because strictly speaking AirPods Pro does not stay in my ears for 24 hours, I have taken it off many times during this period, including charging it, relaxing ears, etc. . However, it has not been taken for more than half an hour each time, so it is different from daily use.
In addition to the reasons mentioned above, there are some unexpected situations when taking off the headset. Let's talk about these 'accidents' first.
The first removal was during the morning wash. AirPods Pro supports IPX4 level waterproofing. It has no problem coping with sweating in daily sports, but it cannot be washed with water. Apple officials also use the term 'anti-sweat and water resistance' to describe its waterproof ability. During the wash, the AirPods Pro was recharged with some power.
The second time I picked it down because I received a courier at noon-the AKG K3003 I bought two days ago arrived and I couldn't wait to hear it. When the K3003 was first launched, it had sold for tens of thousands of dollars. At that time, I could only look up. Now the promotion has been reduced to 2699 yuan ... If it was not for the experience, I would not want to switch back after listening to the K3003, of course. The comparison sound quality is a bit 'bullying' AirPods Pro.
Back to the real wireless field, the sound quality of AirPods Pro is not in the first echelon. Its performance is still significantly different from the Samsung Galaxy Buds, Sony WF-1000XM3, Sennheiser MOMENTUM TW and other products I have heard. of. The personal dissatisfaction is that the sound of AirPods Pro is a little stuffy, and the whole is not 'translucent', which is especially obvious when wearing it for a long time and listening to music.
Apple's description of the sound quality of the AirPods Pro is: 'Customized high-amplitude, low-distortion speaker driver unit can bring a strong and powerful bass. 'I agree with this point, its bass performance is indeed better than AirPods, but from a horizontal comparison, I certainly will not use the' good sound quality 'to describe AirPods Pro.
The remaining frequent removal is mainly colleagues and friends who want to try on the AirPods Pro after seeing it. Interestingly, when I experienced other true wireless earphones before, few people offered to try it on, which can also explain the popularity of AirPods Pro from the side. It can be said that it is a "star" treatment in true wireless.
I also asked you how you 'recognize' the new headphones. There are two main answers: shorter headphone handles, and obvious black bars (external microphones). In other words, you do n’t have to worry about others not recognizing when you buy AirPods Pro ...
'Noise reduction is fierce'
Back to my 'Marathon' experience, the last 24 hours consisted of three scenarios: sleeping, commuting, and going to work.
Let's talk about sleeping first. I charged the AirPods Pro and wore it from zero. I woke up at 8 am and found that there was only one earphone in my ear ... Fortunately, I found another one at the end. The AirPods Pro is relatively small in size, and there will be no obvious foreign body sensation when sleeping and lying on its side, but because the headset has a battery life of only 4.5 hours (noise reduction is turned on), it needs to be charged when waking up.
By the way, the earbuds I've tried best for sleeping are Bose's sleepbuds, but unfortunately this product has been taken down by Bose.
Commuting scene On Monday, I chose subway + bike sharing. The two scenes can be used to test the noise reduction effect and transparency mode of AirPods Pro. The subway is probably the most suitable scene for noise-cancelling headphones after the airplane. The specific noise-reduction effect is my colleague @Who is the hero who has already shared with you in the article, and I will share my feelings below.
I think AirPods Pro's noise reduction is very 'radical'. The advantage is that the noise reduction effect is very obvious, including several colleagues who tried it on. , The more noisy the surrounding environment, the more obvious this feeling. Earlier, my main noise-cancelling headset was the Sony WI-1000X. The first few hours after switching to AirPods Pro was a bit uncomfortable.
The AirPods Pro's noise reduction level is even better. I don't have any other slots besides this. In fact, many noise-cancelling headphones now provide noise-cancellation level adjustments, including Sony's air pressure optimization function. I can understand that Apple, as a newcomer in the field of noise reduction, can't wait to show their muscles. Some delicate exercises will certainly be more fascinating. However, we still have to say that Apple's official website's display of the noise reduction function may be the most attentive of all manufacturers at present, you can click this link to watch it.
Driving noise reduction while riding a shared bike is almost 'dead'. At this time, the transparency mode comes in handy. The transparent mode can monitor the ambient sound. Now it has become an indispensable function of noise reduction headphones. The ambient sound mode and dialogue mode of many products are also a meaning.
The difficulty of the transparent mode is how to make the sound more natural. After all, the real sound of the outside world passes through the driver unit to replay into your ears. If it is not handled well, it sounds like "digital taste". The most natural thing I've heard so far is the Bose 700. The AirPods Pro is also very good. The sound position is more accurate and the volume is moderate.
In fact, most of the time during my experience with AirPods Pro, I used the transparent mode. After all, I have to communicate with my colleagues at work during the day. It is a bit impolite to turn on noise reduction. I also found an advantage in the long experience. The noise floor control of AirPods Pro is quite good. In the quiet environment, the transparent mode can not hear the extra sound.
When I first used it in the morning, I was very unaccustomed to the operation of "pinching" the AirPods Pro. I still felt the convenience of the previous tap. But in the afternoon I started to like it. The force sensor of the earphone handle is very accurate. When the earphone is pressed, there will be sound feedback, which greatly improves the operation confidence.
From playing with the new feature in the morning, to getting used to it after noon, and writing this article while listening to songs at night, my long experience of AirPods Pro is still very high. Another point I think can be praised. Under such high-intensity use, my AirPods Pro has not encountered the strange and common problems of true wireless headphones, such as disconnection and unpairing, and low latency (especially when paired with iPhone) The device switching speed is still excellent.
By the way, this experience I also found a little problem of my own, that is, the shape of the left and right ear auricles are different (this should be very common physiologically). AirPods Pro left and right earphones use the same size silicone earbuds. After a long time wearing, my right ear 'fatigue' is very obvious. In the second half of the experience (after 6 pm), I directly put on the smaller earbuds.
An excellent wearable product
In the past, when we talked about wearable products, we usually focused more on smart bracelets and smart watches. In fact, headphones can also be divided into this field. Because of direct contact with the human body, the comfort of wearing a wearable product is very important. For wearable products to have a real impact on our lives, they need long battery life, and they need to be highly matched in terms of features and usage scenarios. At this level, AirPods Pro is definitely a very good wearable product, which is definitely a higher evaluation than 'an excellent noise-cancelling headset'.
At present, there are no bright intelligent functions on the AirPods series, but it is already a good wearable platform. In the future, it will be “injected” with better voice assistants, and more means will be added to the interaction (including Multiple monitoring functions), AirPods Pro series still has a lot of imagination.
After this long wearing, I don't want to put anything in my ears for a while. But after a few days, I still wear AirPods again, and when it comes into my life with normal usage frequency, I believe I will rely more and more on it.
