Why Are AirPods Pro Still Popular?

Ever since AirPods were released in 2016, they have been a huge hit and raked in hundreds of millions of dollars for Apple. In 2019 itself Apple sold 60 million AirPods. Their success has been unparalleled as far as the market for wearables is concerned. According to Strategy Analytics, they make up 71 per cent of all the wireless earbuds sold in 2019.

Why Are AirPods Pro Still Popular?

 

The primary reasons why they are so popular are:

  • They are portable.
  • They are wireless.
  • The battery life is decent.
  • Easy, wireless charging.
  • Hands-free “Hey Siri.”

AirPods Pro comes at a price of $250, but Staples has been selling them at $200, which means a flat $50 off on the retail price. This is the best ever quoted price so far for the AirPods Pro. But the offer is probably going to be made available again so there is still hope that people who missed out might still be able to purchase it.

AirPods Pro uses an H1 chip which gives it leverage against the original AirPods. It lets users use hands-free “Hey Siri” which was not possible on the original AirPods. It also produces anti-noises which is done after detecting outside sounds so that there is an active noise-cancellation. The automatic pause “when taken out of ear” has been retained. Accelerometers and Optical sensors are some of the newer additions. So, there is much to look forward to in the new AirPods Pro other than just better sound quality, but if you are someone who is looking for a better battery life you might be disappointed.

Apple sold 35 million AirPods in 2018 and broke all previous records by selling 60 million copies in 2019. This trend seems to follow in 2020 because of the huge popularity of AirPods. It seems very likely that by the end of 2020,  AirPods will be the third-largest revenue-generating category after iPhones and services, leaving both iPad and Mac way behind.

The original AirPods was a great product. AirPods Pro with its improved and newer features is a great product itself and is sure to rake in millions for Apple in the coming year. From a consumer’s point of view, AirPods Pro is the best wireless Bluetooth earbuds. So, anyone who is confused about which earbuds to go for, should put their money on the AirPods Pro and they are sure to get a value for their money.
