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.
AirPods 3: Six Hours (Fully Charged)
The best battery life for AirPods yet. You’ll get five hours with Spatial Audio.
AirPods Pro: Five Hours (Fully Charged)
You’ll get four-and-a-half hours with Active Noise Cancellation or Transparency Mode.
Both are MagSafe-compatible.
A custom acoustic mesh only found on AirPods Pro and 3rd gen AirPods covers your AirPod microphones to lessen wind sounds on calls.
Both Pro and 3rd gen provide HD voice quality on FaceTime calls to make your calls sound more true to life than ever before.
