Build Aspect

The Apple Airpods 3rd Generation are the newest iteration of the Apples hugely successful Airpods line-up. The previous generation had quite a fan following not only because of their looks but also superb build quality, inside out. This newest generation has some design, such as the shorter stem, noticeably different shape and contours and slightly larger overall buds. Subsequently they are a bit heavy too, but as before the overall comfort will vary depending upon individual fitting. Build quality of the case is robust and gives a satisfying sound every time it is closed. Likewise the earbuds themselves are premium to look at, feel abuse friendly, not to forget that they are IPX4 rated now. In addition to that, even the battery life is improved which is very welcome.

Performance Aspect

With a revamped design of the earbuds the expectations were high up for them to perform drastically better than the previous Apple Airpods Generation 2 model. But its a bit dramatic, because we have some good news and then some bad. Lets get the bad news out of thew way first. The bass has never been a strong selling point for these style of earbuds, given their lack of in ear seal and inconsistent fitting. And therefore as you may have guessed these Airpods fare rather average in the bass department, but you may find them better or worse depending on the quality of fitting achieved by you. Now the good news, the treble and highs are pronounced, have a sparkle to them and for a lack of proper word feel very transparent, life like. Furthermore the mid range and the instruments and vocals encompassed in that range sound delicate and revealing. Call quality is similar to the previous Airpods with no discernible differences either way. Outline being that these are a good pair of wireless earbuds under ₹ 15000 in India.

Also: Do view superb Jabra earbuds on Amazon before finalizing.

PROS

Lacking bass.
Fitting can be a hit or a miss.

    Purchased few days ago. old airpods 2 were lost. These are louder and have good battery life. I think the earbuds also charge quicker inside the case.
