Apple has recently announced an update to its popular AirPods Pro wireless earbuds, which now come with a USB-C charging case.

Here are some of the key features and benefits of the new AirPods Pro with USB-C.

The case can also be charged wirelessly with any Qi-certified charger. The battery life of the new AirPods Pro remains the same as the previous model, with up to 4.5 hours of listening time per charge, and more than 24 hours with the case.
Dust resistance: More durability and reliability
An improved IP54 rating for the earbuds and case also offers additional dust resistance, so users can bring them on their favorite rugged adventures. The new AirPods Pro can withstand exposure to dust, sand, and other small particles, without compromising the sound quality or functionality. The IP54 rating also means that the new AirPods Pro are water-resistant, and can handle splashes, sweat, and rain.
The new AirPods Pro also have the same design and fit as the previous model, with three sizes of soft, silicone ear tips that conform to the shape of the ear. The ear tips also have a vent system that equalizes pressure and reduces discomfort. Users can also run the Ear Tip Fit Test to find the best fit for their ears.
Lossless audio: More immersive and realistic sound

When Apple Vision Pro is available early next year in the U.S., customers will be able to enjoy the most advanced wireless audio experience in the industry with the new AirPods Pro for exceptional entertainment, gaming, FaceTime calls, and so much more.
The new AirPods Pro also have the same amazing sound quality and features as the previous model, with Adaptive EQ that automatically tunes the music to the shape of the ear, Active Noise Cancellation that blocks out external noise, Transparency mode that lets users hear the environment, and Spatial Audio that creates a theater-like soundstage.
