How to pick the right AirPods
With so many AirPods iterations available, you're probably wondering which pair to buy. Starting with the basic AirPods, the 2nd and 3rd Generation models are shaped differently, with the 3rd Generation being a little wider for a better fit in most ears. The 3rd Generation AirPods also have surround sound and a rechargeable battery. Both are equipped with a microphone. On a single charge, the AirPods 2 have five-hour battery life, and the AirPods 3 have six-hour battery life.
Varying price tags aside, the 2nd and 3rd Generation AirPods and the AirPods Pro differ in design, as the AirPods Pro are intended to securely fit your ear with their silicone-tipped buds, which guarantee active noise cancellation. AirPods Pro also have a stronger bass and three microphones in each bud, which comes in handy for phone calls. Plus, they're sweat- and splash-resistant. Also important to note: AirPods Pro have a battery life of 4.5 hours on a single charge.
If you've decided to get the AirPods Pro, know that you have your choice of three different ear tip sizes: small, medium, and large. Apple users with iOS 13.2 or later can use the Ear Tip Fit Test, which can be found in the AirPods field of the Bluetooth menu when you go to Settings. Keep in mind that you may need different sizes for your right and left AirPod.
If you're not one for earbuds and prefer the fit of traditional headphones, then you may want to consider the noise-canceling AirPods Max. Its over-the-ear fit combined with high-quality, wide-frequency sound creates an immersive listening experience. In fact, Apple describes it as "theater-like." The headphones have 20-hour battery life and will send you alerts when 20, 10, and 5 percent charge is remaining.
