A detailed comparison of the gadgets is given below:
Design & Comfort
The AirPods 2 offers only a universal fit to the users. The earbuds don’t provide its users with the freedom to customize the size of the AirPods 2 to adjust according to his ears.

However, I must say that AirPods Pro is more expert in tuning out you of his world. The AirPods Pro offers two modes of listening to the audio, namely: Transparency mode and Noise cancellation mode.
The Ai and AirPods Pro both offer sound sharing. You and your friend can listen to the same audio without wires as long as both of you have the Apple made earbuds.
The premium feature of the AirPods Pro that is not present in Ai is Adaptive EQ. The Adaptive EQ adjusts the level of sound on the basis of shape of the ear and the type of audio being played, automatically.
This feature is not available in Ai.
The transparency mode of the AirPods Pro can be turned on through applying a little pressure on the stem of the earbuds. The sensors for transparency mode can be felt through the finger touch. The transparency mode enables you to listen to the sound in the earbud as well as the world outside.
Noise Cancellation Mode
The AirPods Pro also offers Noise Cancellation Mode. The mode enables you to get cut off of this world and get lost in the audio of the earbud. AirPods Pro’s Noise cancellation sensors uses 2 microphones: inner microphone and outward microphone. The inner microphone cancels the noise from inside and the microphone on the outer side cancels noise from outside. The microphone self adjusts the noise for about 200 times.
The mode transfer can also be done through the use of iPhone’s control.
The AirPods 2 only operates in Transparent mode.
Wireless charging case
The package you get on buying the Ai earbud include the earbuds and a wireless charging case which if you want can not be included, saving you $40.
