Apple dropped its newest AirPods Pro ad on Wednesday, showcasing the biggest selling point of its newest wireless buds. “Snap” uses busy streets and crazy dancing to demonstrate how effective noise cancellation can be.

AirPods Pro’s improved design is a little less dorky than previous models, and thanks to its silicone tips, your buds won’t fall out of your ears quite as easily. But that’s not the reason why you should spend $249 on AirPods Pro.

The real reason to splash your cash is for active noise cancellation, which isn’t available in regular AirPods. It’s great at blocking out background noise so that you can enjoy your favorite tunes as they were meant to be heard.

Apple showcases this in “Snap,” its newest AirPods Pro ad.

‘Snap’ goes big on AirPods Pro’s noise cancellation

The two-minute video shows AirPods Pro silencing background noise on busy streets. It also demonstrates how easy it is to switch between noise cancellation and transparency modes so that you can hear other people.


In addition to multiple listening modes, AirPods Pro offer Apple’s newest H1 wireless chip for easy and reliable connectivity. They also feature hands-free “Hey Siri” support and wireless charging.

The problem with AirPods Pro right now is that they’re not easy to get hold of. Order yours through the Apple Online Store today and you’ll be waiting 2-3 weeks for delivery. Third-party sellers aren’t much faster.

You might be able to find AirPods Pro in stock at your local Apple Store — that’s usually the fastest way to get them.
