Apple Announced Airpods 3rd Generation Priced at $179

The highlighting part of Airpods 3rd generation is its new design similar to Airpods Pro. Although the design is similar it lacks the Silicon tip present on AirPods Pr which means it loses on the Active noise cancellation feature. It is obvious as Apple is still selling the AirPods Pro models and when the AirPods 3 will get the ANC feature then why would someone buy the AirPods Pro. Overall, design-wise 3rd generation Airpods are much better than the last generation. Not just the buds but the case are also new and similar to the case of AirPods Pro.

Apple is highlighting a lot about the Spatial audio capabilities of Airpods 3rd generation. It comes with dynamic head tracking for three-dimensional listening experiences while playing songs or watching movies. It also features adaptive EQ that helps to tune the music. In the sound department, AirPods 3rd gen packs an Apple-designed dynamic driver along with a custom amplifier. Both the buds are covered in a special acoustic mesh that also features a microphone.

Now the Airpods 3rd generation also supports HD voice quality on Facetime calls all thanks to the new AAC-ELD speech codec. Just like the AirPods Pro control sensor AirPods 3 has a force sensor. The controls are similar too, press to play, pause and skip between songs. There is also support for always-on Siri so you can ask Siri to play a specific song or your favourite playlist. If you want to take the new AirPods 3 to a swimming pool or gym then it is perfectly okay as it is sweat and water-resistant and comes with an IPX4 rating.

Coming to battery life and charging, the AirPods 3 has an improved 6 hours battery life. On top of that, a fully charged case can top up the AirPods 4 times. It means users will get a complete 30 hours of battery life with the case. If you are in a hurry then 5 minutes of charge will give 1 hour of listening. The case supports both Wireless and MagSafe charging so you can drop them and get fully charged.

Just like other Apple ecosystem products AirPods 3 will connect instantly. You just have to open the lid and tap on connect on your iPhone. Apple has also enhanced Find my experience on AirPods 3 so you can find it easily through Find my network. Lastly talking about pricing and availability the AirPods 3rd generation is priced at $179. It is available for order starting today and will be shipping starting 26th October. What are your thoughts about the all-new AirPods 3? Drop a comment to let us know.
