AirPods (3rd generation) review: The upgrade we’ve been waiting for

Better sound, longer battery life, and refined design

Apple AirPods (3rd generation)
  • Expert Rating

    4.50 / 5


  • Shorter stems
  • Water-and sweat-resistant
  • Greatly improved sound quality


  • Fit is highly dependent on your personal ear shape
  • A bit pricey

Bottom Line

The improved sound quality and battery life alone are the reason to prefer third-generation AirPods over the second generation, but the design will be an improvement for some users, too.
