Apple’s AirPods 3 set to copy the in-ear design of the AirPods Pro, but it could come at a much higher price as a result.
That depends An Electhe sources, who have said that the Airpods 3 cost 20% less than the AirPods Pro, and that they do not have the latest active sound elimination technology. Considering that the AirPods 3 would make $ 199 at launch, that’s a huge boost to the flow AirPods 2, which cost $ 159.
Apple is clearly not afraid of slowing down high prices on its headphones, especially in the case of the AirPods Max, which is hundreds of dollars bigger than competitive over-the-ear cans like the Bose 700. what is unusual this time is not unlike the AirPods Max, the standard AirPods should be the closest to the ‘entry level’ option, so it might be a hit up the cost to be a risky move.
The report also seems to confirm that the next AirPods will adopt the more elegant, practical and comfortable design of the AirPods Pro. That could be a reason for price increases, although it still looks likely that the AirPods 3 – or AirPods Pro Lite, will not have the high-end features like ANC and Spatial Audio, as they might. be named.
That would contradict other rumors we’ve heard about recently, which have the AirPods 3 shutting down active sound and a “contextual hearing system” that detects potential threats. in and either lower audio or sound in earbud, depending on proximity. But there is a chance that the AirPods 3 could be a separate product from the AirPods Pro Lite.
Instead, the report marks a release date in the first half of 2021, which is consistent with previous leaks suggesting the AirPods 3 release on March 21st. It’s also noteworthy that the AirPods 3 will once again use the H1 chip, the tiny audio processor Apple has previously introduced in the AirPods 2, AirPods Pro and AirPods Max.
We will have to wait a few months to see if these rumors come true. But so far the AirPods 3 could be contenders for the best wireless earbuds list, as long as they can balance audio features against a high price tag.
