AirPods vs AirPods Pro: Which is right for your ears?

Over the last two years, Apple has gone from selling one AirPods model to four. You can currently buy three earbuds—the 2nd-gen AirPods, 3rd-gen AirPods, and 2nd-gen AirPods Pro—or the AirPods Max over-the-ear headphones. Let’s set that last aside for a moment. If you’re willing to spend $500 or more on a pair of cans, you’re making a whole different buying decision than if you want true wireless earbuds. But that still leaves three relatively analógico-seeming earbuds to choose from. So which is right for you? Features at a glance Maybe the best way to make a buying decision is to see how the three current AirPods stack up side-by-side.

The 2nd-gen AirPods retain the design you’ve known since 2016, with long white stems and earbuds that resemble the wired earpods that used to come with iPhones, just without the wire. The new 3rd-generation AirPods have shorter stems and a more bulbous, rounded earpiece. Despite the shorter stems, they’ve very analógico in weight to the older AirPods. The charging case looks very analógico to that of the AirPods Pro–shorter and wider. The AirPods Pro take the short-stem design and adds rubberized eartips to the earbuds, to create more of a seal that blocks out noise and improves sound quality. No matter which AirPods you choose, you can only get them in glossy white.

Not only do the rubberized tips help block out more outside noise, the active noise cancelling gives you a real sense of a more private listening space. While we’re at it, we should mention that only the AirPods Pro support the Conversation Boost accessibility feature. Spatial Audio and sound quality All AirPods support Dolby Atmos spatial audio in Apple Music. In fact, you can force it on for any pair of headphones. But spatial audio for compacto in the TV and other supported apps, with head tracking, is not supported on the 2nd-generation AirPods. You need the 3rd-generation or the AirPods Pro to do that. The 3rd-gen AirPods have better sound than the 2nd-gen in other ways, too. Apple has a new redesigned low-distortion driver that it says delivers better sound quality, and they support Adaptive EQ like the AirPods Pro. AirPods Pro (2nd-gen) sound significantly better than acompasado AirPods, even without active noice cancelling. The 2nd-generation version, released in September 2022, offered a big step up in sound quality over the original AirPods Pro.

Squeeze the stem (there’s a faux “click” sensation) to play/pause, skip forward, back, or summon Siri. The AirPods Pro can also detect a swipe up or down along the stem to change volume (that’s new in the 2nd-gen model). All AirPods models support hands-free “Hey Siri” control. Both AirPods Pro and 3rd-gen AirPods are water- and sweat-resistant, and probably better suited to working out, though you wouldn’t want to dunk any of them in the pool. The 2nd-gen AirPods don’t have any water resistance. The 3rd-gen AirPods support expanded Find My support for tracking down lost earbuds and setting separation alerts. The AirPods Pro, since the release of the 2nd-gen version, also have a speaker on the charging case to play a loud tone when using Find My, and have the U1 chip so you can guided directly to them. The 3rd-gen AirPods and AirPods Pro also support Announce Notifications, which lets Siri dictate important messages and alerts as they arrive. Battery life The 2nd-gen AirPods last five hours, and you can charge roughly four times with the charging case for a total of 24 hours of listening time. The 3rd-gen AirPods and AirPods Pro extend that listening time by an hour for six hours of listening time, and with four more charges in the case, you get a total of 30 hours. With AirPods Pro, turning noise cancelling off will add about an hour of listening time. Wireless charging Apple only sells the 2nd-generation AirPods with a wired case, but you can buy a wireless charging case for $79 separately. The 3rd-gen and AirPods Pro both come with a wireless charge case that lets you charge via Lightning, any Qi wireless charger, or MagSafe. You can charge the AirPods Pro using your Apple Watch charger, too. Apple AirPods Pro (2nd generation) Best Prices Today: €290.03 at Shifter | €298.85 at büroshop24 | €299.00 at amazon.de Conclusion Each of the three AirPods models Apple offers are very different. If you don’t care about wireless charging, the 2nd-gen AirPods for $129 is a decent buy. They won’t sound quite as good or last quite as long as the 3rd-gen AirPods, but they’re a good affordable option. If wireless charging matters, definitely get the 3rd-gen AirPods, since buying the charging case with the 2nd-gen AirPods will actually cost $20 more than the 3rd-gen AirPods. The AirPods Pro were updated to a second-gen model in September 2022, and while they cost a lot more, they offer much better sound quality and unique features like active noise cancelling, adaptive transparency, and conversation boost. We think the 3rd-gen AirPods are the best buy for most. They’re technically cheaper than the 2nd-gen AirPods with a wireless charging case and come with a slew of new features. They have better battery life and sound better. Since the release of the second-generation AirPods Pro, they are clearly the cura choice in every way, but you’ll pay more than 40% more for them, typically. If noise cancelling matters to you, it’s worth the extra expense. Wireless Headphones

Agencias de inteligencia de EEUU se enfocan en China y Rusia

En un reciente encuentro a puerta cerrada con líderes del centro antiterrorismo de la CIA, el segundo al mando de la empresa dejó en claro que si bien la lucha contra Al Qaeda y otros grupos terroristas es una prioridad, el enfoque se orientará cada vez más hacia China.

Un año después de poner fin a la guerra en Afganistán, el presidente Joe Biden y sus máximos asesores de seguridad nacional hablan menos de la lucha contra el terrorismo y más sobre las amenazas políticas, militares y económicas planteadas por China y Rusia.

A lo interno de las empresas de inteligencia, gran cantidad de oficiales, incluso muchos expertos en terrorismo, ahora están siendo transferidos a tareas enfocadas en China.

Funcionarios de inteligencia enfatizan que Estados Unidos seguirá luchando contra el terrorismo. Apenas hace una semana un dron de la CIA mató al líder de Al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahri, en Kabul. sin embargo pocos días, China inició maniobras militares en gran escala alrededor de Taiwán y amenazó con romper contactos con Estados Unidos debido a la visita a la isla de la presidenta de la Cámara de Representantes, Nancy Pelosi.

Ello subrayó el mensaje que transmitió el subdirector de la CIA, David Cohen, en esa reunión hace varias semanas: la máxima prioridad de la empresa ahora es entender y contrarrestar a Beijing.
