Apple's new spring season in 2021 is coming. We have been following and reporting the news of Apple's new generation of airpods.
Recently, the information about airpods 3 has been basically available, and the appearance design and function are close to the previous exposure information.
This is a real picture of the latest products of airpods 3,It adopts handle type half in ear design and combines some characteristics of airpods 2 and airpods pro. The handle is slightly longer than airpods pro and retains the pressure touch. The earphone is half in ear design, but it can be used with earplug.
The main control chip of airpods 3 is still Apple H1In order to maximize the use of internal space, it may be a sip packaged version.
The hardware of airpods 3 is similar to that of airpods pro, but it doesn't support active noise reduction function. In addition, there is not much difference in function.
The appearance design of the headset charging box is similar to that of the airpods Pro charging box, but the size and volume are smaller. The charging indicator is on the front of the body, and the charging box supports wireless charging function.
Although the volume has become smaller, airpods 3 does not support active noise reduction and adaptive equalization, and the endurance data may be consistent with that of airpods 2: the headset is fully charged, the endurance time for continuous playing music is about 5 hours, and the total playback time with the charging box is about 24 hours.
The inside of the airpods 3 charging box is displayed. The charging contact at the bottom of the earphone handle is still metal tail plug, and there are metal shrapnel in the charging box to connect with it for charging.
The opening in the inner cavity of the headset is a pressure relief / tuning hole, and there is an infrared distance sensor at the bottom of the cavity. As you can see in the previous figures, its design idea is consistent with that of the airpods pro.
Apple's first three generations of airpods all use st STMicroelectronics's bone vibration sensor combined with beamforming microphone for speech recognition and call noise reduction. This time, this feature should be retained in airpods 3.
There is a quick pairing button on the back of the charging box. There is a microphone in the dust-proof net outside the earphone, which is used to pick up the ambient sound to assist in noise reduction. There is another microphone at the bottom.
In general, airpods 3 may be a transitional product. It combines the small size of airpods 2 with the features of airpods pro, and the half in ear design can be used with earplugs, giving consumers the right to choose.
Airpods series products can get very good sales and reputation, which has a lot to do with the perfect experience of using with iPhone.
In addition to pop-up display and fast pairing connection, the voice assistant real-time wake-up, audio sharing, multi device switching and spatial audio functions supported by the airpods series are relatively easy to use. I believe that airpods 3 will also support these features.
In terms of price, the overseas price of airpods 3 is about $150, about RMB 1299, which is close to the current price of the Bank of China of airpods 2.
I believe Apple will give an answer in the next two weeks.
