Airpods Pro 2 sound delay is much less than the previous generation
Airpods Pro 2 has received various upgrades compared to the previous generation, and many of these improvements have been implemented thanks to the use of the new H2 chip. Now, according to a review by a composer who is also a programmer, this wireless headphone has improved significantly in terms of latency. Send and receive information. Naturally, the shorter the time between sending the sound from the source device and receiving it by the headphones, the better the user experience. Although most quality wireless headphones do not have much delay in the field of video playback, but if you are looking to edit sound and play games, for example, these delays become more important. To calculate with great accuracy, he used Apple Pencil, iPad Pro and AirPods headphones. The working method is that a microphone is placed near the tablet to record the sound of the moment the pen hits the screen, and then the sound delay provided by the tablet speaker and headphones is checked.
As you can see in the above diagram, Apple has succeeded in reducing the sound delay of these headphones from generation to generation, and AirPods Pro 2 has been able to reduce the delay by 40 milliseconds compared to the previous generation. Provide less latency. Meanwhile, AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro presented a delay of 153 and 167 milliseconds, respectively.
We should also mention the difference of 43 milliseconds between the sound delay in AirPods Pro 2 and the tablet speaker. So, although Apple has managed to significantly reduce the delay for these headphones, if you are looking to receive audio feedback from AirPods headphones, for example, to use a pen, you will still receive these sounds with a significant delay. Because of these problems, many gamers and professional users still prefer to use wired headphones.
