    par Juli Clover le 8 novembre 2019 à 22 h 07 min

    ColorWare, a company that designs custom-painted Apple products, today began offering custom-painted versions of the AirPods Pro, a little over a week after the AirPods Pro first debuted. ColorWare is offering the ‌AirPods Pro‌ in dozens of custom colors, ranging from solids to metallics in all colors of the rainbow. Jet black gloss, deep purple, yellow, orange, red, gold, silver, and more are options. Each AirPod Pro earbud can be painted in a different shade, and the Wireless Charging Case can also be painted in a unique color. Users can choose between a matte or gloss finish. A custom version of the ‌AirPods Pro‌ will cost $389, which is a $139 premium over the base $250 price tag. Customizing the ‌AirPods Pro‌ case as well costs an additional $50, for a total of $439. ColorWare is using Apple's base ‌AirPods Pro‌ for the customization, so these have all of the standard features of the ‌AirPods Pro‌ such as Active Noise Cancellation, Adaptive EQ, and more, with no change in functionality due to the painting. To create ‌AirPods Pro‌ in custom colors, ColorWare disassembles them and then carefully custom paints each individual component. There is, unfortunately, no option for sending in existing AirPods. All ColorWare work is guaranteed for 12 months, and 24 months with the purchase of an additional warranty. Returns are available for the first 30 days but are subject to a 25 percent restocking fee.

Check out our video, keep reading, and you might well discover a new trick or two. Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos. 1. Take Out Your ‌AirPods Pro‌ the Right Way Have you found yourself getting frustrated trying to wrestle each AirPod Pro out of the case? Well, we're here to tell you "you're holding it wrong." Apple has designed them in such a way that you simply have to push on the back of each earbud and it will swivel right out between your thumb and forefinger. 2. Enable Noise Cancellation for Better Audio ‌AirPods Pro‌ are Apple's first in-ear headphones with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), which adapts to the shape of your ear and blocks out the outside world so you can focus on what you're listening to. ANC relies on a feature called Ambient EQ, which Apple says adjusts the sound signal 200 times a second to optimize audio for your specific ear shape through the use of an internal-facing microphone. When you turn off noise cancellation, Ambient EQ is also disabled, meaning sound quality is slightly degraded. So for the best Airpods […]
