2nd generation `` AirPods Pro '' reports audio drift problem where sound shifts

With Apple's noise-cancelling wireless earphone `` AirPods Pro (2nd generation) '' released on September 23, 2022, the problem of `` audio drift '' in which the left and right sounds are switched or out of sync with the video is emerging, Apple-related news site 9to5mac reports.

AirPods Pro 2 users complain of audio drift and syncing issues

An overseas bulletin board site, Reddit, has reported that audio drift has occurred in the 2nd generation AirPods Pro.

'This is my second 2nd gen AirPods Pro and the audio seems to float back and forth. Occasionally the volume of the song goes down and then randomly goes up. Head tracking and spatial Audio is turned off

'The same thing happened with my 2nd Gen AirPods Pro. I'm watching YouTube with spatial audio, and most of the videos would get the AirPods out of sync after an ad. It feels like one side is a little behind the other, and the voices of the people in the video seem to be ringing in your ears instead of in the middle of your head. It looks like I have to turn it off and turn it back on to resync the AirPods.It's pretty frustrating.'

'Fast-forwarding or skipping in a YouTube video creates an ultra-wide sound field with the 2nd generation AirPods Pro. Has anyone encountered the same phenomenon?'

'There seems to be a firmware issue. It's clearly software related. Let's hope an update will be released soon.'

It's unclear why this problem is occurring, but Reddit says, ``There is a bug in the noise canceling function and the adaptive environmental sound removal that selectively reduces loud noise, causing audio drift at some frequencies. It is speculated that it may happen.

According to 9to5mac, Apple has not acknowledged the problem of audio drift in the 2nd generation AirPods Pro. 9to5mac says that it is not necessarily a problem at the time of writing the article, and it is only reported by some users, but ideally it should be fixed with a firmware update.
