The upgrade to the original AirPods include Active Noise Cancellation, improved sound quality with Adaptive EQ, and "Transparency Mode," which uses a new vent system and software to allow the user to listen to music while still hearing what's going on around them. All of this is wrapped up in "an all-new lightweight, in-ear design." The battery life of the Pro is the same as AirPods — five hours on a full charge — and four and a half hours when Active Noise Cancellation mode is activated.

The AirPods Pro will be released on October 30, and will retail at $249.
