AirPods 3 Review

AirPods 3 Review

For the first time since 2016 the Apple AirPods has a new design. This new design bears some resemblance to the Apple AirPods Pro, so it wasn’t a surprise when it mistook them for the Pros at first glance. The design includes 33% shorter stems and XP4 waterproofing for the earbuds and case.

 

How do they sound?

Let kick this review off with how these earbuds sound. Apple has equipped these earbuds with new custom drivers along with the same adaptive EQ found in the previous version that optimises sound on the fly. These features help the AirPods 3 to deliver a fuller sound with more detail and better bass with no distortion at high volume. They sound better than the older AirPods 2, you get great clarity in the mids and high with deep bass.

 

Are they any good at blocking out sounds?

Unfortunately, these aren’t noise-cancelling headphones and due to the open design you won’t get much sound blocking from outside noise. But Apple has designed the AirPods 3 with beamforming microphones that are covered in wind dampening acoustic mesh and voice detecting accelerometer sensors that do a good job in reducing background noise while keeping your voice sounding clear when you are on a call. There is also full HD audio for facetime calls thanks to support from the AAC ELC Speach codec.

 

Spatial Audio

These earbuds sport Apple’s new Spatial Audio feature. It’s a feature that allows you to get a virtual surround sound experience when you are watching movies and TV shows on various Apple devices. You also now use this feature with group Facetime calls.

 

Battery Life

Battery life has improved from 5-hrs to 6-hrs on a single charge with an extra 4 charges with the charging case. That charging case has wireless charging and sports MagSafe which means it sticks to Apple’s MagSafe charger as well as other magnetic wireless chargers including wireless battery chargers.

 

Additional Feature

Like the AirPods Pro, the AirPods 3 has ear detection sensors and enhance Find My feature with a proximity view to help you locate your AirPods whenever you lose track of them.

 

Final thoughts

Apple’s 3rd Generation AirPods is a worthy successor to the AirPods 2. It has a new design, IPX4 waterproofing, longer battery life, and new software features that make them sound great. So it’s not hard to recommend Apple’s 3rd gen Airpods. But if you currently own a pair of 2nd gen AirPods there’s no need to upgrade just yet.
