The audio quality is excellent for both music and phone calls.

Apple AirPods Pro are the improved version of the original AirPods. The main difference is that the AirPods Pro have active noise cancellation for immersive sound, whether you are listening to music, listening to an audiobook, or having a phone conversation. They also feature transparency mode, which allows you to hear some of the sounds around you while still listening to the sounds coming from your AirPods. This is a great feature when you don’t want total noise cancellation, like in an airport where you need to listen for announcements regarding your flight.
The AirPods Pro come with three sizes of soft silicone tips for a custom fit and are sweat and water-resistant, making them great for runners or use at the gym. The adaptive EQ automatically tunes music to your ear’s shape, which makes for a totally immersive listening experience. AirPods Pro also feature the same easy setup and quick access to Siri as regular AirPods.
