Apple released AirPods 3: design similar to AirPods Pro, but without noise cancellation

Yesterday, October 18, Apple held its second fall presentation. As part of the event, she presented not only the new generation of MacBook Pro, but also the long-awaited AirPods 3 wireless headphones.

The third generation AirPods feature a redesigned design and improved sound quality. Externally, they are similar to AirPods Pro, but without silicone pads and active noise cancellation system. But the new headphones have spatial audio technology and an adaptive equalizer that adjusts the music for the user personally. The new headphones, unlike their predecessors, are sweat and water resistant and, according to the company, feel more comfortable on any ears.

In terms of battery life, Apple promises that the third-generation AirPods will last one hour longer on a single charge than the previous generation. In addition, they received support for fast charging and just five minutes of charging can provide the headphones with an additional hour of work.

The new AirPods are already available for pre-order on Apple’s official website. In Russia, the cost of the third generation of Apple wireless headphones is 16,490 rubles. They will be delivered in 1-2 weeks from the date of ordering.
