First published impressions of the AirPods 3

Yesterday, Tuesday, October 26, Apple began to deliver the first orders of the new AirPods 3. But as it usually happens, a few days ago some specialized writers of the sector and famous YouTubers “plugged in” of the company have already received them.

And the first impressions of these critics have already begun to circulate on the internet. Let’s see what they explain about their first contact with the long-awaited and rumored third generation of the AirPods.

A couple of days ago, some critics specialized in the sector of electronic devices have already received from Apple the first units of the new AirPods 3. And quickly the first “unboxing” videos and the first impressions when testing them. Let’s see what they think about the third generation of Apple’s best-selling headphones.


Most of those who have already put the new AirPods in their ear, such as Andrew Liszweski, editor of Gizmodo, they think they have a somewhat larger size than previous AirPods, but not as big as AirPods Pro.

On the other hand, the “leg” of the earphone is identical to that of the AirPods Pro. Said stem has even inherited the control system Force Touch that we already know about the AirPods Pro.

Being a little bit bigger, fit more closely to the ear cavity. As a result, they “isolate” themselves a bit more from outside noise than previous AirPods. This is what Chris Welch thinks of The Verge.

Gizmodo’s Andrew Liszweski also said that the AirPods 3 fit his ear better. The AirPods 3 are “a little heavier” than the original, but the shorter stem and the more aerodynamic design orienting the main speaker “at a better angle it feels like it offers better weight distribution.”

Instead, Britta O’Boyle from Pocket-lint comments in his report that the new AirPods were too big to his ears, and said they occasionally fall out of his ears. Their ears “spit” them out due to pressure to be larger.


All the critics who have tested the sound of the AirPods 3 come to the same conclusion. They sound much better than AirPods 2. Some think that they sound the same as the AirPods Pro, and others that “almost” match the sound of their more professional brothers.

Billy Steele de Engadget highlights in his review the adaptive equalization function of the AirPods, which personalize the sound individually for each ear. This feature and other sound quality updates make the AirPods a device designed for listening to music.

Charging case

Everyone thinks that it is a good charging case, similar to the one known in previous AirPods, with the novelty of incorporating the wireless charging system MagSafe. As a curiosity, it attaches magnetically to MagSafe chargers, but it does not adhere to the back of the iPhone 12 and 13 that incorporate said charging system.

As an example, Pocket-lint’s Britta O’Doyle writes that in her tests, the battery life of the AirPods 3 actual is greater than the company officially says. Apple says the AirPods 3 will last up to six hours, but she found that listening lasts longer than that. In their tests, they lasted 4.5 hours of talk time, when Apple says 4, and 5.5 hours with spatial audio enabled, half an hour longer than the company claims.


How could it be otherwise, these first impressions of Apple’s “plugged in” are very positive. Most like the new design, something else big heads and short legs, with a better fit and improved sound.

The incorporation of the spatial audio and the adaptive equalizer. They also highlight the good battery life, both of the headphones themselves, and of the charges in the case. Everyone also comments on the MagSafe wireless charging system.

Some of them missing silicone tips, for a better fit, and the Noise Cancellation. But if this is important to you, you solve it by buying the AirPods Pro instead of the AirPods 3, and matter resolved.

It is clear that 199 Euros This is not an affordable price for in-ear headphones. But what is clear is that no headset on the “similar” market can offer you so many specific functions integrated into the Apple environment. Therein lies the difference.
