How To Check Whether Noise Cancellation On AirPods Pro Is Broken

Here is how to check if your AirPods Pro have been affected by the problematic firmware, which breaks the earbuds' noise-canceling feature

Noise-canceling earbuds and headphones like the AirPods Pro might be your best friend in crowded places when you need some peace and quiet but cannot quite go somewhere else. AirPods Pro price is now $249.

However, users of the Apple AirPods Pro recently noticed that the feature no longer work properly after the firmware update.

Users of the Apple AirPods Pro recently noticed that the feature no longer work properly after the firmware update.

When it comes to sealing the users from the noise around, there are passive noise canceling and active noise canceling. The former will use barriers like memory foam to prevent ambient noise from reaching the inside of your ears. The latter makes use of inverse sound waves to cancel the noise.

Apple’s firmware update, by the look of it, has improved the audio but at the same time, hurt the active noise canceling feature.

When it noticed the issue, Apple has pulled the firmware but before it did that, plenty of users had got it. The firmware is applied when the earbuds is in the case charging so there is no way users can choose to opt-out or pause.

If you own a pair of Apple's latest earbuds and recently noticed that they behaved oddly when the noise-canceling feature is active, you are probably affected by the flawed firmware update. Here is how you can be sure:

Step 1: Connect the earbuds with your iPad or iPhone and head to Settings.

Step 2: Choose General, About, and AirPods Pro.

Step 3: Find the version number, if it is 2C54, yours has downloaded the bad firmware update.

Unfortunately, there is no way you can go back to the previous version so you will be stuck with the underperforming ANC until Apple completes its updates that contain patches for the flaws.

If you need the feature so bad and cannot afford to wait, adding ear tips with memory foam might help.

Airpods Pro price in India is Rs. 24,900.
