  • Yes, there are 3 modes of noise cancellation. Active Noise Cancelation, Off, and transparency mode. Active noise cancellation is just noise cancelation, Off is off and Transparency mode has no active noise cancelation other than the rubber tips. It has a mic on the outside that lets you hear your surroundings while listening to music. It is comparable to the Bose or Sony Noise cancellation headphones.

  • AirPods Pro has a Transparency mode that is activated on your phone or by holding the force sensor on AirPods. It lets sound through so you can hear your surroundings as if you weren't wearing them. Or you can turn off Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency.
