Apple Lossless Sound Is Coming? AirPods Pro2 firmware update on first day of sale

Apple has pushed the first firmware update for the just-released second-generation AirPods Pro, version 5A377.

After all, there should be a substantial update after many years. But what is a little disappointing is that not only did there not change much in the shape design, but even the LE Audio mentioned above failed to make an appointment as scheduled. It has to be said that since the launch of the AirPods series, its sound quality performance has always been the biggest topic of debate. Some people say that this "plain water" style tuning is just right for various music genres and is the best solution for ordinary consumers. scheme, but music lovers don't think so.

Under this protocol, it cannot be parsed High-quality audio source, which is also the cause of headaches for users. Earlier, Apple's developers found information about LE Audio in the iOS 16 system code. As a new generation of Bluetooth audio technology standard, LE Audio can provide Bluetooth devices with low power consumption, high sound quality and high stability. Features, the Android camp has announced that it will be added to Android 13 for manufacturers to choose, but Apple has not shown its attitude. (Picture from: The Verge) Apple is currently in a state of paradox, especially the collision between hardware and software, which seems to be at odds with each other. Last year, Apple Music announced that it would remake its digital audio sources to provide new lossless high-resolution sound quality and digital mastering, and these pleasant enjoyments were officially made clear that they do not support any wireless audio devices on sale. The reason is very simple. Bluetooth Audio protocols simply cannot reflect the new experiences these sources bring. Although the drive unit and amplifier of the new AirPods Pro have been updated, the lack of audio protocols makes it almost impossible to improve the sound quality. This is the first time Apple has seen hardware and software fighting each other. Of course, Apple does not currently support LE Audio, which does not mean that it is not testing. After all, this technology has entered the iOS 16 system code, and Apple Music spends a lot of money to remake high-quality music, and Apple will not waste it. It can be seen that the arrival of lossless sound quality of the second generation of AirPods Pro will only be a matter of time, and it is still unknown how long it will take.
