The next generation of the AirPods Pro will be equipped with a heart rate detection sensor to collect and analyze the wearer’s inner ear data to monitor heart rate, according to a report from 52Audio. The heart rate monitoring sensor may also support temperature detection, the article adds.
And as for audio performance, 52audio finds that Apple AirPods Pro 2 will follow the acoustic characteristics of AirPods 3, equipped with a combination of customized high-amplitude drive units and high-dynamic-range amplifiers, presenting delicate sound quality. It will also support self-adaptive equalization, spatial audio for dynamic head tracking, audio sharing, and other functions, “providing a rich wireless audio experience,” the article adds.
The AirPods Pro 2 is anticipated to feature an entirely new design that does away with the short stem that comes out of the bottom for a design similar to the Beats Fit Pro. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks the release of the new AirPods Pro will boost shipments to more than 100 million.
