Apple AirPods Pro 2: What is the chance of lossless audio arriving in 2022


The second generation of the Apple Airpods pro has been rumored for quite some time. This year, the AirPods Pro 2 will show itself fully with the Apple Lossless Audio Codec. A shred of new evidence from Ming-Chi Kuo shows why Apple engineers take so long.

Apple can’t create “Pro” wireless headphones that don’t support lossless audio now that it’s standard on Apple Music. However, the Bluetooth technology used in today’s headphones does not provide enough bandwidth to appreciate them fully.

According to a memo obtained by AppleInsider and 9to5Mac from Ming-Chi Kuo, the ALAC code is an extremely high-quality codec that keeps all of the sound’s nuances but needs a large amount of bandwidth that even the most expensive AirPods Max cannot provide. In this manner, it is expected that Apple’s R&D group would have to dig deep to provide lossless sound on wireless headphones.

Initially, the company would cross Bluetooth to transition to a proprietary solution. It will be interesting to see how much this decision allows the AirPods Pro 2 to be used with non-Apple devices., Apple’s VP of acoustics, said in an interview with What Hi-Fi that the business would have to go above and beyond to “get the most out of Bluetooth technology.” While admitting that there were “many ways to get beyond or around the constraints of Bluetooth,” he also admitted that there were “many tricks to go beyond or around the limits of Bluetooth.”

According to Kuo, the charging case for the AirPods Pro 2 might emanate sound, which is less remarkable but still perceptible. Imagine being able to play music just via the headphones box. If he gets lost, this function will only make it simpler to locate him.

The box, like an AirTag, may either make a sound or vibrate at a very high frequency to assist you in finding it in space. To do so, open the Locate application on your iDevice and choose the appropriate option.
