With just over a month to go until the release of the AirPods Pro, Huaqiang North has already made different versions of the AirPods Pro, and even cracked the pop-window interface of Apple’s phones, changed its name, power show, all marveled, even so, we still have a negative attitude towards the cottage, but the market is so big, There must be a need for cottages.
A few days ago, I love the audio network in China Qiangbei bought what is called the shanzhai AirPods Pro 3.0 products, the seller said the interior is equipped with BES Hengxuan Bluetooth chip. I love the audio network on the cottage AirPods Pro (Hangxuan version) disassembled, through i love audio network disassembly, see if this 3.0 version of the cottage AirPods Pro is a huge improvement, or just a small joke, with a bluff.
I. Shanzhai AirPods Pro (Hangxuan Version) Out of the Box
The front of the package, consistent with the original box, but zoomed in and down is not refined enough.
The side of the font has a pattern, close to the original box of the printing texture.
The stickers on the side are not well organized, the font is not clear enough, there is a scan of the original box font reprinting out of the feeling.
There is the same problem with the back and the front, the picture is not refined enough, but the font printing is more clear.
Packing list: headphones, four booklets, white silicone earbuds.
Attached to two pairs of the same small size white silicone earbuds, this earbud does not have a dust net design for genuine earbuds.

The close-up on the back of the charging box, the close-page area is not consistent with the genuine, and the arc of the four corners is slightly larger than the arc of the genuine. At the bottom of the close page is a physical pairing button.
A close-up of the Lightning charging connector at the bottom of the charging box.
The back of the charging case is not refined enough, designed by Apple in California Assembled in China font is printed, not sharp enough, and the genuine is laser-engraved.
Lightning interface around is not tight enough, rough workmanship, easy to build scale.

A close-up of the inner appearance of the headset.
It’s just a decorative black strip.
It’s just a decorative black strip, just in line with the genuine styling.
Text information on the earphone case.
The charging area at the bottom of the headset, unlike genuine, is consistent with the AirPods 1 and 2 generations.
Force-pressed area, measured, this area can be touched to operate, but not press operation.
The microphone is a close-up of the sound hole, covered with a screen. The shape is obviously different from the genuine.
The shanzhai AirPods Pro was successfully paired with the iPhone 11 Pro.
The volume adjustment interface can switch noise reduction, off, transparent mode, but the measured does not have any effect.
Getting into the bluetooth headphone snout interface that comes with the iPhone 11 Pro is a bit of a fake.
Headset and charging case weight: 47.6g. That’s a far cry from the genuine 56.4g.
Second, shanzhai AirPods Pro (Hangxuan version) dismantling
Let’s first disassemble the headset.

The inside of the headphone head cavity is at a glance.
Presumably this is the in-ear detection component of the headset.
The headset board is welded directly to the bottom charging area.
The internal components of the headset are wired to the motherboard.
The headset uses a ring speaker, a metal coil, and a plastic diaphragm.

The charging case lithium battery is located in the middle of the middle frame, on the back of the wireless charging coil.
The huge weight-for-weight iron block inside is attached to the lithium battery, which is a dangerous practice without common sense. In the process of use, lithium batteries are highly susceptible to the friction and oppression of tight iron blocks, which can cause combustion or even explosion at any time.

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.
