AirPods 3: Wireless in-ears with a new design, 3D audio and MagSafe

After over two and a half years, Apple has updated its wireless earbuds. While the AirPods 2 released in 2019 looked exactly like the first AirPods, Apple relies on a design for the AirPods 3 that is reminiscent of the AirPods Pro.

In contrast to the more expensive AirPods models, the AirPods 3 should apparently not offer active noise cancellation (ANC for short).

Apple promises a better battery life: If the AirPods 2 played music for up to five hours on one charge, the AirPods 3 should last up to six hours. As usual, the in-ears charge in a supplied battery case, which is supposed to offer four more charges, so that the AirPods can play for a total of 30 hours.

The AirPods 3 will cost 199 euros and can be ordered immediately and will go on sale on Tuesday, October 26th. Apple continues to offer the AirPods 2, the list price drops from 179 euros to 149 euros. The AirPods Pro
