AirPods offer a wireless and magical sound experience. Put them in your ears and they connect instantly. Speak into them and your voice sounds clear. They can sense when they’re in your ears and pause when you take them out. The result is completely magical.
Driven by the custom Apple W1 chip, AirPods use optical sensors and a motion accelerometer to detect when they’re in your ears. Whether you’re using both AirPods or just one, the W1 chip automatically routes the audio and engages the microphone. And when you’re on a call or talking to Siri, an additional accelerometer works with beamforming microphones to filter out background noise and focus on the sound of your voice.
