<![CDATA[Want AirPods Pro? This is the one Prime Day deal you can't ignore]]> Amazon's October Prime Day is here, and while the two-day shopping event falls under the guise of Big Deal Days rather than Prime Day sales this time around, many of the same excellent deals can be found. There's one deal that wasn't around on Prime Day in July however, because the product itself wasn't even announced back then and that's Apple's AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) with USB-C.

We're particularly fond of the decent discounts we're seeing for AirPods because these are some of the best prices we've ever seen.

<![CDATA[Beats Studio Buds+ vs Apple AirPods Pro 2: Which are the best?]]> Apple's AirPods and Beats find themselves a bit of a strange situation - where they are owned by the same parent company, and yet in almost direct competition with one another. The Beats Studio Buds+ make that rivalry closer than ever, with improvements on the original Beats Studio Buds that really take the fight to the AirPods Pro 2 - and could just make them some of the best Beats earbuds yet.

<![CDATA[Best AirPods Pro 2 lanyard cases 2023: Budding safety ]]> Apple's AirPods are some of the most iconic wireless earbuds on the market. And while there's been many iterations over the years, including the most recent, USB-C equipped, AirPods Pro 2nd Gen all models share a common flaw: they're painfully easy to lose. Even with the built-in "Find My" technology, roughly 17 per cent of AirPods owners have lost at least a single AirPod or misplaced the case throughout their listening time. That's why a simple investment in a lanyard for your charging case can make a huge difference.

<![CDATA[New AirPods Pro 2nd Gen (USB-C) vs old AirPods Pro 2nd Gen: What's changed?]]> Apple has released an update to its AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) wireless earbuds that, well, isn't really an update at all. The changes are so minimal that the updated model doesn't even have a new name, leaving us to have to comprehend unwieldy phrases such as 'the new USB-C Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)' and 'the old Lightning Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)'.

<![CDATA[What is Personalised Volume on AirPods, how does it work and how do I get it?]]> The first-generation Apple AirPods Pro introduced active noise cancellation (ANC) to the popular wireless in-ear headphones. The company didn't rest on its laurels however, with additional features added to the second-generation AirPods Pro (both the Lightning and USB-C models) that make the audio experience even better. Features such as Adaptive Audio and Conversation Awareness make it even easier to get the sound that you want from your AirPods without having to fiddle with the settings.

<![CDATA[What is Conversation Awareness for AirPods, how does it work and how do I get it?]]> Apple's AirPods Pro (second generation) have some great noise cancellation features that ensure that the outside world doesn't encroach on your listening enjoyment. You can immerse yourself in your favourite music or block out the world with the latest episode of your favourite podcast. Sometimes, however, you might need to be able to hear the outside world, just for a little while at least. If you bump into someone you meet, for example, not being able to hear a word they're mumbling at you isn't ideal.
