Adaptive noise control is a feature available on the second-generation AirPods Pro. It requires an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, running iOS 17, iPad 17, or macOS Sonoma at minimum, respectively. It allows your AirPods to automatically adapt to your environment, providing optimal noise cancellation based on the noise level around you.
This feature uses advanced algorithms to continuously monitor the sound around you and adjust the level of noise cancellation to provide the best possible listening experience.
With adaptive noise control, your AirPods can provide more noise cancellation in noisy environments, such as when you're commuting or working in a busy office, and less cancellation when you're in a quieter environment, like at home or in a library.
It is particularly useful for people who want to enjoy their music or audio content without being distracted by external noise, but also want to be aware of their surroundings and stay safe.
In this guide, we will show you how to enable the feature.
