How to turn on noise canceling on your AirPods

Behold the wonders of Apple AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, where active noise cancellation (ANC) reigns supreme, whisking you away to an auditory oasis. This nifty feature blocks out pesky external noises, ensuring your music, podcasts, or quiet moments are undisturbed by the chaos around you. But wait, there’s more! Enter transparency mode, a savvy sidekick that lets ambient sounds sneak in, keeping you tuned in to your surroundings while enjoying your tunes.

How to wield noise cancellation like a pro with AirPods Max and AirPods Pro

ANC and transparency mode are at your fingertips – literally! Here’s how to toggle between these blissful modes on your AirPods Pro and AirPods Max.

Step 1: Don your AirPods Max and ensure they’re powered on. Locate the noise control button on the right earcup – it’s sleek, silver, and sits opposite the Digital Crown. Press it to cycle through ANC, transparency mode, and Off.

Step 2: Got AirPods Pro? Easy peasy! While wearing them, press and hold the force sensor on one stem until you hear a pleasant chime. Voila! ANC, transparency mode, or Off, just a sensor press away. If you’re rocking the latest AirPods Pro (2nd gen), experience Adaptive Audio, the smart blend of ANC and transparency that adjusts on the fly.
