The shanzhai AirPods Pro (Hang Xuan version) disassembled overview.

I love audio net summary

The replica of the shanzhai AirPods Pro didn’t go any further, still using decorative strips to mimic the gimmick. The charging box even if the weight iron block is added, the weight level is not close to the genuine, which means that the internal components do not reach the size of the quantity of the genuine. Unlike the force-pressing of genuine products, the shanzhai AirPods Pro uses touch to achieve functional switching, but due to lack of hardware, it does not support transparent mode and active noise reduction. The whole machine and the previous cottage version is not much different, let alone what bright spots, and the external claim of the 3.0 advanced version is really a bit does not match.

The interior is indeed equipped with Hengxuan’s Bluetooth master chip, but the specific model is unknown, in the Bluetooth wireless connection experience has a certain guarantee. Note, however, that the product is not recommended for ordinary users because the weight-plate iron block inside the shanzhai AirPods Pro charging box is tightly attached to the lithium battery’s design, making the headset charging case a potential risk of combustion and explosion.
