Active Noise Cancelation
AirPods Pro are also largely expected to sport some type of Active Noise Cancelation (ANC) technology. That would bring Apple’s own branded headphones in-line with several Beats products that currently feature noise cancelation.
More than that, AirPods Pro are rumored to sport a type of ANC called Pure Adaptive Noise Cancelation, which will monitor the noise in the ambient environment to tailor the noise cancelation. The system, similar to ones seen on Beats Studio3 headphones, could even analyze the fit of your headphones to optimize playback quality.
