AirPods 3 review: Apple upped its sound game


Apple's third-generation AirPods have an improved design and sound. But are they better than the AirPods Pro that cost around the same price?

Ultracompact, lightweight, sweatproof (IPX4) and very comfortable to wear ; Significantly improved sound with better bass ; Performance when making calls is excellent ; Improved battery life (up to 6 hours) ; Spatial audio virtual-surround feature...

May not fit ears as securely as AirPods Pro ; Open design allows sound to leak in and out ; AirPods Pro are frequently available at the same price

Apple AirPods (third-gen) review: new design, same appeal


There are many reasons to like them besides gimmicky spatial audio.

Less conspicuous design ; IPX4 water resistance ; Improved sound quality

No MagSafe reverse wireless charging from iPhones ; Spatial audio is inconsistent ; They let in a ton of outside noise

Apple’s third-generation AirPods have a new design with shorter stems. They sound better, have IPX4 water resistance, and support spatial audio with head tracking. But there are still reasons to choose the AirPods Pro or AirPods Max instead.

Apple AirPods (3rd Generation) Review


Natural, rich bass depth and crisp, clear highs ; Hands-free Siri voice commands ; Water- and sweat-resistant design ; Wireless and MagSafe charging

In-ear fit can still be inconsistent, resulting in imbalanced stereo image ; Fit doesn’t feel secure enough for rigorous exercise ; No adjustable EQ

Apple’s third-generation AirPods provide notably better bass depth and are more rugged than their predecessor. Despite some improvements to how they fit and some neat sensor tricks, we still aren't wild about their open earbud design.

Apple AirPods (3rd generation) Review


From the butt of jokes to wireless trendsetter, Apple's AirPods are serious business now. The true wireless earbud market is a huge deal in accessories, and all eyes were on late 2021's…

Tight iPhone integration ; Solid battery life ; Improved audio performance ; Spatial audio is clever ; IPX4 water resistance

Fit won't suit every ear ; No active noise cancellation ; Open design means you hear ambient noise

Apple AirPods 3 review: Spatial audio steals the show


The 3rd generation AirPods are here, with much smaller stems, great battery life and Apple's newest gimmick – spatial audio.

Portable package ; Good-looking earbuds with small stems ; Comfortable in-ear fit ; Great sound, especially with spatial audio ; IPX4 sweat and water resistance

No active noise cancelling

Apple AirPods 3 review


With solid upgrades to design, functionality, and sound, the Apple AirPods 3 come up slightly short of perfection. But they're still highly recommended.

Apple AirPods (3rd generation) review: Still unsealed, still not the best


Apple's classic, unsealed true wireless earbuds get more advanced features. Find out more in this AirPods (3rd generation) review.

Unless you hate having ear tips inside your ears, we don’t recommend buying these over the Apple AirPods Pro or any other sealing earbuds. Unsealed earbuds have major disadvantages that aren’t just limited to sound quality.
