AirPods are slim and lightweight, with a curved shape. They're angled just so for comfort and to help direct sound to your ear. The stem is 33% shorter than the second-generation AirPods and features a force sensor for easy music and call control.
Spatial audio with dynamic head tracking
For music, TV shows, and movies, sound is distributed all around you to provide a realistic, three-dimensional listening experience. AirPods use gyroscopes and accelerometers to detect your head motions, making it sound like you're in the middle of songs and situations.
Music is automatically adjusted to your ear's shape. Inward-facing microphones detect what you're hearing and alter low- and mid-range frequencies to convey all of the song's rich nuances.
Longer battery life
When compared to AirPods (2nd generation), AirPods feature an extra hour of battery life, allowing for up to 6 hours of listening time and up to 4 hours of conversation time.
