Active Noise Cancellation is just one of the hot new features in the latest generation of Apple’s AirPods. The new AirPods Pro, which go on sale Wednesday for $249, combine earbud microphones with software to remove background noise and improve a user’s listening experience. An outward-facing mic on the bud collects environmental sound for analysis. That analysis allows the bud to create a sound that can cancel out noise before it reaches a listener’s ear. Meanwhile, an inward-facing mic listens toward the ear.
