What are Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency modes?
First, microphones pick up sounds in headphone transparency mode. These microphones are strategically placed on the headphones to capture sound waves that pass through the ear cups. The microphones pick up these sounds and process them for headphones.
The headphones mix the processed sound with the original audio. This blending lets people hear their music and the world. The result is a clear, transparent sound that allows users to be aware of their surroundings.
An outward-facing microphone or microphones detect external sounds, which your AirPods Pro (1st or 2nd generation) or AirPods Max then cancel with anti-noise before you hear them. AirPods Pro and AirPods Max use anti-noise and an inward-facing microphone to detect unwanted internal sounds.
Transparency mode lets outside sound in, so you can hear what’s going on around you. AirPods Pro fits well for active noise cancellation and transparency. You can minimize background noise using AirPods Pro (2nd generation) with the most recent version of iOS or iPadOS. To activate Adaptive Transparency when using your AirPods Pro (2nd generation) with your iPhone or iPod touch, go to Settings > [your AirPods].
