Apple 2021 MacBook Pros boast improved bass, improved mics, and improved microphones ...

Apple claims its new MacBook Pro models are "the best audio system in a notebook", with better microphones and improved bass.

Both the 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-in MacBook Air feature a six-speaker sound system with 80% more bass. The speakers have two, bigger tweeters and four force-canceling woofers that Apple claims can go half an octave (or "so la ti do") deeper than before.

The MacBooks come with "studio-quality" mics that have a 60% better signal-to-noise ratio than before, which should result in clearer Zoom calls in particular.

As with all Apple products, including the iPad and AirPods 3, the new sound system includes Apple's spatial audio for watching movies and listening to Apple Music.

The new laptops feature M1 Pro and M1, Max chips, as well as a Liquid Retina XDR display. The 14-inch laptop will retail for $1,999 (1,899, AU$2,999), while the 16-inch version will cost $2,499 (AU2,399 and AUD$3,749).
