Apple AirPods Pro
Kenny Yeo

It’s easy to dismiss the Airpods pro and say they are a money grab by Apple. but the truth couldn’t be farther from that. Apart from active noise-cancellation, the Airpods pro have a new design for better wearing comfort, water resistance for exercising, decent sound, and a fantastic ambient listening mode that makes them fantastic true wireless earphones for any iphone user.

Apple has spent great effort designing the Airpods pro to maximise comfort. First of all, the earpieces themselves have a different profile so that when worn, less of it touches your ears. The silicone ear tips have a different mounting point so they are very short and do not intrude deeply into the ears. These mounting points also prevent the ear tips from detaching by accident, and the internal rubber passageway of the tip tapers to minimise contact inside the ear.

The Airpods pro even has a system of vents that equalises pressure inside and outside your ears so that you do not get that stuck in your head feeling. You can feel this equalisation at work whenever you put the Airpods pro on. And at 5.4g, the Airpods pro is incredibly light and one of the most comfortable earphones I have ever worn.

What Should You Know About Cloud Security Solutions?

First, let’s explain exactly what the cloud is, and how it relates to digital security. Intuitively, some people believe that “cloud” storage means your data is being held in the air somehow, but this isn’t really the case. Instead, most cloud applications store data on physical servers, in datacentres around the globe. Your data is stored remotely, and provided to you upon request.
