All users expect a new design from the AirPods Pro 2, but according to the latest data and estimates, as well as estimates of what the headphones will look like, it’s clear that the design will remain almost unchanged and the “rodless” design will be missing.
Photos of the upcoming AirPods Pro 2 were released last year, and it’s clear that no major design changes have been planned. Pictures, or rather 3D models of headphones, have recently re-emerged on the Internet and this is another confirmation of last year’s data. The photo shows that there is no sensor that detects earphones in the ear, instead you can see the sensors to detect the skin (i.e. earphones respond when they touch human skin). Such sensors are more efficient and of higher quality. They respond to the skin, or rather to a certain amount of moisture in it. That is, it turns out that AirPods Pro 2 will not be able to take on any other surface for the human body. An earlier version of the AirPods Pro still had optical sensors. These are also effective, but may be mistaken, because they do not react directly to the human body, but whether they are on the surface. That is, if you put earphones in a pocket or bag without a case, if you put them in your ear, the earphones may look the same. This is why the developers decided to install the new model AirPods Pro 2 with other sensors, more accurate and not wrong.
A company has done another analysis of photos of future AirPods Pro 2 headphones and also confirmed a slight design change. They reported that only holes have been changed for new human skin sensors. The photo shows that the space below it is slightly different in size and matches the sensor, so such photos can be considered realistic. Everything else in the design hasn’t changed at all, so the AirPods Pro 2 won’t look any different from previous models.
The most common rumor was that the AirPods Pro 2 would be rodless and more rounded, so it would be more convenient for users, analysts say. But the information and previous photos suggest that the developers will not implement this idea and all this will remain just a rumor. A good update would be a case that makes noise. This is confirmed by the presence of speakers. The function will be used to easily find the cover while next to the headphones. It makes life easier for users. Recall that now there is such a function, but it is not so. Now when searching, the words are created while charging the headphones. And the case itself, with the exception of headphones, cannot be traced this way.
So, as you can see, the main rumors about the AirPods Pro 2 have been refuted, but that doesn’t mean that the manufacturers have paid too little attention to innovation. Only sensors and cases are valuable in the new model. The rest of the updates will be available after the AirPods Pro 2 presentation.
