Transparency mode provides users with the option to simultaneously
listen to music while still hearing the environment around them,
whether that’s to hear traffic while out for a run or an important
train announcement during the morning commute. Using the
pressure-equalizing vent system and advanced software that leaves
just the right amount of noise cancellation active, Transparency
mode ensures that a user’s own voice sounds natural while audio
continues to play perfectly.
Switching between Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency modes
is simple and can be done directly on AirPods Pro using a new,
innovative force sensor on the stem. The force sensor also makes
it easy to play, pause or skip tracks, and answer or hang up phone
calls. Users can also press on the volume slider in Control Center
on iPhone and iPad to control settings, or on Apple Watch by
tapping on the AirPlay icon while music is playing.
