Apple AirPods 3 are Apple ‘s latest wireless earbuds with spatial audio, 6 hours of playtime, and an all-new contoured design.
AirPods are considered the best earbuds for Apple users as they feature the Apple H1 chip for easy pairing and fast transmission, and built-in Siri. What’s more, they’ve also got sweat and water resistance, MagSafe charging and more. Apple AirPods 3 are now available to order. Here’s what you need to know about the official release date, price, features, and more.
Price and release date of Apple AirPods 3
AirPods 3 cost $179 and buy them now on Apple’s website.
AirPods 3 does not replace any of the current models: AirPods 2 will continue to be available for $129, while AirPods Pro will retail for $ 249 and AirPods Max for $549.
Apple AirPods 3 will be available for $179 (US) and are available to order from apple.com/store and in the Apple Store app in the US and more than 26 other countries and regions starting today, with availability in stores beginning Tuesday, October 26.
Apple AirPods 3 design
With shorter legs and an elongated ear section, AirPods 3 look more like AirPods Pro than the original AirPods. The company also redesigned the touch sensor. It looks bigger and more noticeable than the AirPods and AirPods Pro touchpad. This should make it easier to control by touching any EarBuds.
Aside from the looks of the AirPods 3, perhaps the most exciting design update is the increased durability. Previously, only AirPods Pro offered sweat and water resistance, with the exception of the regular AirPods on our list of the best workout headphones and best running headphones . They can now be safely worn at the gym, on a run, or in the rain.
Like all models except the AirPods Max, the AirPods 3 are classic white with a matching casing. The case supports wireless and MagSafe charging, although it also offers a Lightning port.
Apple AirPods 3 features and sound quality
A dedicated low-distortion driver delivers both powerful bass and crisp, clear sound. While they don’t offer active noise cancellation or headphone fixture testing, they do have an adaptive equalizer for automatic sound adjustments.
Notably, AirPods 3 also have Spatial Audio, a feature previously reserved for Apple’s premium headphones. Spatial Audio creates stunning multi-vector surround sound for listening to music, watching movies, and more.
In terms of additional features, Apple AirPods 3 offers sound reminders, hands-free Siri activation, and Find My support for lost AirPods. Some of these tools recently came along with the iOS 15 software update for iPhone, so it could be a great accessory for iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro.
Apple AirPods 3 battery and charging case
Apple has increased the battery life of AirPods. The previous generation had 5 hours of active listening time + 24 hours of extra charge from the case. The new AirPods are rated for 6 hours of battery life + 30 additional hours with a charging case.
Not without fast charging, which will allow you to listen to music for another hour with 5 minutes of charging!
