When a device is launched, the first thing we expect is rumors about its operation. Then the scoop tests that some lucky ones carry out on models left by the company. Later we wait for the first real tests and then for their disassembly to see their insides. It seems a bit gore, but you learn a lot when the experts tell you about them. You appreciate their value and if they are worth buying. Normally it is iFixit but now 52audio is the one who has disassembled the new AirPods 3.
Headphone-specialist YouTube channel 52audio took apart the third-generation AirPods to show us what’s inside. Unsurprisingly, disassembling the AirPods 3 is not exactly easy, as most of the pieces are glued together, which means that it is almost impossible to fix them. The AirPods 3 have a new design inspired by AirPods Pro and features like Spatial Audio and Adaptive EQ. However, while the external design looks almost the same, they are quite different on the inside.
Looking at the new AirPods 3 charging case, you can see a new set of magnets that are used to attach the case to the MagSafe charger, something no other AirPods have. The case also has a graphite heating pad to avoid problems caused by heating, in addition to the Lightning port, the logic board, and a 345 mAh battery. Another difference is that while the AirPods Pro charging case has two separate small internal batteries, the AirPods 3 case only has one large battery.
As for the AirPods 3 themselves, cEach earphone has a new skin detection sensor which is smart enough not to be fooled by other surfaces. Which is a first in the AirPods family. All components are connected in series by an FPC cable with a small battery between the speaker and the microphone. The internal battery of the AirPods 3 has a capacity of 0.133Wh.
Well take a look at the video for more information.
