A general synopsis of most unboxing videos is that the design looks similar to AirPods Pro but is more compact; the case is not as wide and the AirPods are smaller because of no ear cups and have shorter stems. But it is made to fit different types of ear shapes.
In comparison to AirPods 2, the new model delivers better sound quality: the Adaptive EQ makes them a good device to make calls on any smartphone, iPhone, or Android and spatial audio delivers a good watching experience with dynamic sound coming from all directions. The new model features a force sensor to control the functions of the AirPods by squeezing the stems which were missing on the previous model. Water and sweat resistance make them a good device to workout with.

The AirPods 3 will be available on apple.com on October 26, 2021.
