Today, Amazon is offering a $29 discount on Apple’s new AirPods (3rd Generation), while Best Buy and B&H Photo are just offering a $10 discount. The new Apple AirPods (3rd Generation) previously sold at $179, but you can get them for $149.98 on Amazon.com and at $169 on Best Buy stores right now.
Customers who purchase AirPods (3rd Generation) from the Best Buy store will receive 6 months of Apple Music and Apple News+ free for new subscribers, as well as 3 months of Apple TV+ free for new subscribers.
The new Apple AirPods (3rd Generation) has Dolby Atmos compatibility and spatial audio technology with dynamic head tracking. Unlike typical left/right stereo playback, spatial audio surrounds you in sound and adapts positioning as you move your head, ensuring that you’re always in the sweet spot. When you watch a Dolby Atmos movie, you’re immersed in the sound and feel like you’re right in the middle of the action.
Another element that aims to intelligently improve your audio experience is adaptive EQ. It automatically adjusts playback in real-time, whether you’re at work or on the train, so the AirPods can offer music that’s closer to what you’re supposed to hear. AirPods (3rd Generation) can survive a hard workout or be caught in the rain while running.
The AirPods (3rd Generation) may last up to 6 hours on a single charge. Within the provided charging case, you may get another 24 hours of use. To begin recharging them, simply place them inside and close the top. Simply connect the provided Lightning to USB Type-C cable to a power adapter to charge the case itself (not included).
You can also charge wirelessly with an optional MagSafe or Qi-compatible charging station if you want a more streamlined solution. According to Apple, a 5-minute quick charge can provide up to an hour of listening time.
The new Apple AirPods (3rd Generation) are part of the Apple ecosystem and can pair with your iPhones, Macs, Apple Watches, and iPads as soon as you open the case, and easily switch between multiple devices and audio sharing.
