Amazon is currently offering Apple’s latest AirPods 3 for $149.99 shipped. Marking a return to the second-best price for the first time in more than a month, these are down from $179 to come within $5 of Amazon’s all-time low before the spring. Apple’s latest headphones just launched in October and notably arrive with a redesigned case that takes a page out of the book from the pro version. While you ditch the silicone tips, the AirPods 3 arrive with much of the same spatial audio support, plus added water resistance for tracking runs or workouts. Plus, there’s the nifty new MagSafe charging case that offers 30 hours of listening time to complete the package. See below to find out more.
As remarkable as some of the new inclusions this time around are, there’s still something to be said for how good the previous generation AirPods 2 are. This is a great alternative for accessing Apple’s true wireless earbud game, even if you miss MagSafe charging and Spatial Audio support. Even so, the $119 the price tag may offer enough additional savings to be worth those trade-offs.
As compelling as Apple’s two offerings are, those not entirely into the iOS ecosystem might want to bring home a pair of platform-independent buds. That’s where 1MORE’s new EVO ANC headphones come in, which we just reviewed last week. Making as good a first impression as you’ll find, these deliver audiophile-grade sound to back up all the other ANC and premium features.
Apple AirPods 3 Features:
An Apple-designed dynamic driver, powered by a custom amplifier, renders music with exceptionally detailed sound quality – so you’ll delight in every tone, from deep, rich bass to crisp, crisp highs. Covered in a special acoustic mesh, a built-in microphone in each earbud minimizes wind noise when you’re on a call, so your voice is always heard loud and clear.
