Apple unveiled its latest iteration of its AirPods during the October “Unleased” event. The new AirPods 3 inherits numerous features from the Pro model, thus offering significant upgrades to its predecessor. It’s now available in Nepal as well. Here, we will be looking at the specs, features, official price, and availability of Apple AirPods 3 in Nepal.
Apple AirPods 3 Overview:
Design and Comfort
Starting with the design, Apple has blurred the line between the vanilla and Pro model. The third-gen Apple AirPods now comes with a contoured in-ear design with a short stem, very much like the AirPods Pro—but without silicone tips. Moving on, both the earbuds and the charging case are IPX4 rated against splash damage.
Here, each earbud weighs only 4.28 grams. Though they are a little heavier than the second-gen AirPods, they are still lighter than the AirPods Pro. Similarly, the charging case weighs around 37.91 grams.
Powering the AirPods 3 is the same-old H1 chip. As mentioned earlier, newly added features on the latest earbuds narrow the gap between the vanilla and the Pro model.
For instance, AirPods 3 can track the user’s head movement for a more immersive sound experience. This feature, called Spatial Audio, is not available in its predecessor.
You also get Adaptive EQ, which uses audio computation to compensate for the low and mid frequencies lost during wireless transmission.

Thanks to the H1-chip, you can seamlessly switch between different Apple products like an iPhone, MacBook, etc. AirPods 3 also has a skin-detect sensor that pauses the content when you are not wearing them.
Moreover, its dual-beamforming microphones help in blocking out the ambient noise during phone calls. They even support hands-free “Hey Siri”. Siri can read time-sensitive notifications to the users, including Messages, Reminders, Calendar events, and Calls. Third-party apps can also make use of it by adopting a specific API.
Still, there is no Active Noise Cancelation (ANC) here as it is exclusive to the AirPods Pro for now.
Apple has improved the battery life on these AirPods as well. It can now offer up to 6 hours of playback and up to 4 hours of talk time on a single charge. To compare, it’s an additional hour of backup for both use cases compared to AirPods 2. With the charging case, those numbers climb to 30 and 20 hours, respectively.
As for charging, Apple promises up to an hour of battery life with just 5 minutes of charging. The charging case supports wireless charging via a MagSafe or Qi-certified chargers—on top of wired charging using a Lightning connector.
