Apple’s 3rd generation AirPods launch on Oct. 26. It’s the first classic AirPods update since 2019’s 2nd gen AirPods.
Comparing AirPods 3 to AirPods Pro will give you something to think about when you go to buy new headphones.
AirPods 3 have a shorter stem with a new media-control force sensor (to pause tracks, answer calls, etc.). They’re also sweat- and water-resistant.
Not Like Pro:
AirPods 3 don’t have silicone ear tips — there’s a new contoured design to better direct audio into the ears.
