Immediately after the “Unleashed” event, Apple started selling AirPods 3. With a new design and an improved battery, do you think these wireless headphones fit better or worse than the previous model?
AirPods 3 has been talked about all year. They were teased to launch at the March event, which never existed, then at the Spring Loaded event in April, at WWDC21, at the September California Streaming event, but were only introduced last month along with the new Macs.
The new AirPods 3 have a similar design to the AirPods Pro with a short stern but no ear tips. Although some people have had problems with the AirPods Pro fit, Apple says it improves its “universal fit” and that this model is great enough for most users – especially for those who upgrade from genuine AirPods headsets or second generation.
Even with the main structure of AirPods 3 being larger, the lack of ear tips makes them feel more comfortable and safer in people’s ears.
For example, when you wear AirPods 3, comparing them to the previous model, it better isolates the external sound, although it is not even close to what AirPods Pro does with ANC.
Another big improvement with this year’s version is the support for Spatial Audio, which makes the listening experience much better. With up to six hours of battery life in a single charge, the AirPods 3 is truly impressive.
Personally, I’ve never had a problem with Apple’s AirPods headphones and they all fit well in my ears. My opinion is that each of them works in a different situation. For example, AirPods 2 are great for calling someone or when I need to be aware. With the Pro model I like to shut myself off from the rest of the world.
Although I was able to try out the AirPods 3 only for a short time, not only were they comfortable, but they also sounded more powerful than the previous version, which also amplified when you are considering buying new wireless headphones.
With that in mind, do you think AirPods 3 fit better or worse than AirPods 2? Or are your favorite Apple Wireless AirPods Pro headphones? Vote in the poll and tell us in the comments section below.
