    4.0 out of 5 stars A solid upgrade over the AIrPods 2
    By Daniel on October 28, 2021
    I don't understand why people feel the need to post their their non-verified purchase reviews(basically opinions) of new Apple products. But since I got mine today and all the reviews are from people who haven't even seen, let alone used the new 3rd gen AirPods, I will give my initial impressions.

    These are the successor to the standard, 2nd gen AirPods released in the spring of 2019. These keep the open design without eartips, but adopted the look and control system of the AirPods Pro. These also get wireless charging by default (like the AirPods Pro), as well as MagSafe charging (something that the AirPods Pro were updated with after these were announced). I am an Apple fan, for sure, and I own all versions of the AirPods that are currently sold as well as the Beats Studio Buds. Some people think that these aren't worth $180 because the Pro model already exists and sells for $180-200 usually, even though the list price is $250.

    These do not have the active noise cancellation feature that the AirPods Pro or Beats Studio Buds have, but I think people are forgetting that some people don't like using earbuds with tips that go into your ear canal. That is one of the the things that made AirPods so popular in the first place, plus the fact that they are made by Apple. There aren't a ton of options for premium, open true wireless earbuds with the universal fit that AirPods offer, they're just not as common as the kind with silicon eartips. And there is no way to use the AirPods Pro without also using the eartip, they won't stay in place like theses 3rd gen AirPods will.

    The bud itself is larger on these compared to the previous model with the longer stems, so these feel a bit different when you put them in your ear. I got used to it pretty quickly and they are really comfortable, they stay in place really well for my ear shape. These have the force squeeze controls that the Pros have and it is so much better to use than the old tap controls. If you haven't used this controls system before, you will most likely enjoy using it more because the bud doesn't get pressed into your ear when you need to pause the music and you get more options for controlling playback.

    The other big upgrade here is the sound quality along with Spatial Audio which works just as well as it does on the AirPods Pro. The sound quality now is pretty much on par with the AirPods Pro, some reviewers have even said it's better. It includes the Adaptive EQ feature where the earbuds are constantly re-adjusting the sound to give you the best quality audio based on your surroundings. There is an internal microphone dedicated just to analyzing the audio to make sure it sounds as good as possible.

    Spatial Audio is kind of hard to explain but I will try my best, instead of having a static left and right channel audio, the audio sounds like it's all around you. For Video, it makes the sound seem like it's coming from where the video is playing (your iPhone or iPad or Apple TV). Think about if you are listening to audio from a speaker that is in front of you, if you turn your head to the left, your right ear is going to be hearing more of the audio because your left ear is now facing away from the speaker. That is what spatial audio is like, using the new AirPods when you watch a video on your iPhone. The AirPods use the sensors(accelerometers and gyroscopes) in the earbuds as well as in your iPhone to calculate the position of your head in reference to the device playing the video. The end result is that the audio sounds like it is in front of you, coming from the device, even though it’s playing through the AirPods. It really is awesome and it's one of my favorite features of these AirPods, the older 2nd generation did not include this feature but the Pro model does. While originally it only worked on iPhone/iPad, it now works on Mac and Apple TV as well.

    The last thing to mention is these AirPods now have better sensors for detecting when they aren't in your ear, even the Pro model doesn't have the new skin detection sensors. This means that if you take out your earbuds and put them in your pocket or a dark place like a drawer, the AirPods will not be fooled and won't accidentally un-pause your music until you put them back in your ear. The old model used optical sensors that were good, but not this good.

    Pros+

    Wireless Charging+MagSafe charging comes standard (before you had to pay extra)

    Spatial Audio for watching videos and for supported songs through Apple Music

    Open design that doesn't require the use of eartips you have to put in your ear canal

    Much improved sound quality over the previous generation (AirPods 2)

    New force touch sensors like the AirPods Pro

    Better in-ear detection thanks to skin detection sensors

    Improved mic quality for voice calls, Apple is using a new codec for voice calls (AAC-ELD)

    Longer Battery Life (6 hours) [compared to 5 hours on Airpods 2 and 4.5 hours on AIrPods Pro]

    Better support from the Find My app, there is now a precision finding feature similar to AirTags and you can ring them while they are still in the case (only available on the new AirPods 3)

    Apple’s H1 chip and the strength of the ecosystem (Hey Siri, your messages and notifications will be announced to you, auto switching between devices signed into your iCloud account, audio sharing, etc). To be clear, these are not new or exclusive to AirPods 3, but still add to the value proposition.

    Cons-

    No Active Noise Cancellation because of the open design

    The AIrPods Pro can sometimes be had for roughly the same price

    Universal shape might not fit everyone’s ears

    Not as compelling for people with Android phones and Windows computers. Apple’s OS and software is what makes these so magical

    5.0 out of 5 stars Super Light Weight & There's Bass!
    By Scora on October 28, 2021
    I'm comparing these to the AirPods Pro. These are excellent for those who want to save a few bucks and don't need the active noise cancelation. They're everything the AirPods 1 and 2 are, it better and more compact!

    Sound - Warm and balanced. There's bass! These sound great for earbuds with no silicone or foam ear tips. It's very hard to get excellent sound quality without a seal in the ear and Apple has figured it out with these AirPods! Clarity isn't amazing, but that's a good thing because instead of boosting the treble to create fake clarity and ruin the sound, apple played the strengths of their driver and created a flat tonal curve. Makes listening to songs very enjoyable and not harsh nor muddy.

    Fit - Super lightweight! They'll stay in your ears. They're so much lighter than the AirPods Pros. I was genuinely surprised when I pulled it out of the case. This is a good thing! One gripe about the AirPods Pro was its slightly heavy and has ear tips which plug into your ear canals. These don't. That means they'll just disappear in your ears and you'll definitly forget it's there. Wait, I'm wearing something?? Currently listening to music on these while writing this review.

    Style - Honestly, AirPods 3 and Pro look the best in the market. Other earbuds look like a huge round hearing aid sticking out of you ear. With the shorter stem on these, it'll be a huge upgrade to the previous Gen AirPods. No more silly long white stem sticking out of the ear, it looked hideous in my opinion for people who don't know that the stem is supposed to point directly down and / or towards your mouth, NOT pointing slightly away from you.

    And NO, I'm not an apple fan boy. I use a fully custom built PC and have been rocking android for all my life. Apple just makes incomparable products and earbuds just happen to be one of them.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money, but read carefully
    By thespectrix on October 29, 2021
    Bought these to upgrade from the 2nd gen never got the pros because I personally don’t like in ear buds, but the sound quality is definitely better than the 2nd gen with much better bass and touch controls work way better then the tap function. Also to view your warranty go to your settings on your iphone then bluetooth then select info on your new air pods and scroll all the way to the bottom to see your warranty. In all this was a great purchase and definitely enjoying all the features on these

    Reviewed in Mexico on November 18, 2021
    Excelente calidad de sonido, personalmente me gusta mucho el diseño. Hay mejores audífonos probablemente, mas baratos definitivamente, pero lo que me convence de Apple ademas de su diseño e innovación, son las comodidades que presenta manejar un ecosistema Apple, gracias a su chip H1.

    El único inconveniente que veo es el precio. $4,500 me parece un buen precio para el AirPods PRO, que la única diferencia con estos es la cancelación de sonido. Tengo que confesar que no leí bien la publicación y pensé que había comprado los PRO por muy buen precio, un poco mi decepción al darme cuenta de mi error, pero no pienso pagar 1,500 mas por el cancelamiento de sonido. De ahí en mas, muy feliz con mi compra
