New AirPods are expected this year that are more similar to the AirPods Pro. That would be the AirPods 3, which are now shown in new photos published by 52audio.
The AirPods 3 have an in-ear design and the charging case is also a bit smaller. Compared to the old AirPods, the headphones themselves have a smaller bridge and come with exchangeable silicone attachments.
The operation of the in-ears could also be taken over by the AirPods Pro.
The AirPods 3 should use Apple’s special ventilation system for pressure equalization, which also makes wearing the AirPods comfortable for a longer period of time. Spatial Audio should also be on board.
The AirPods 3 will not have active noise cancellation and a transparency mode.
The new AirPods 3 will cost around $ 150 and will hit the market in March. It is quite possible that Apple will present the new headphones together with a new iPad Pro and the AirTags.
