AirPods Pro from Apple is one of the most advanced earbuds. A lot of advanced features like Spatial Audio, Activate Noise Cancellation, Transparency Mode, and more are available in it. The best thing about the AirPods Pro is that you can enable or disable these features as per your preferences. When you activate the Noise Cancellation feature on your AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, an outward-facing microphone detects the external sounds, which your AirPods will counter with anti-noise and cancels them before you hear them. And an inward-facing microphone listens inside your ear for unwanted internal sounds.
