Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Generation 2022 REVIEW — MacSources

AirPods Pro 2nd Generation elevates the listening experience to the next level.

While I wouldn’t consider myself an ‘audiophile’, I do consider myself a nerd when it comes to high-quality, premium listening experiences. I really love complicated soundtracks and I always cheer for the Sound Mixing and Sound Editing categories at award shows. That said, headphones are some of my favorite gadgets to test out as a content creator.

When I heard about the AirPods Pro 2nd Generation I honestly didn’t think it would be possible for a set of earbuds to provide the best possible listening experience for any type of audio. I was wrong and the new generation of AirPods Pro is worth every single penny you pay for them.

About AirPods Pro 2nd Generation

They are wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphones designed by Apple and are considered Apple’s ‘mid-range’ headphones with the standard AirPods and AirPods Max on either side of them in the product lineup.
