Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) technology is a great invention for those of you working in a noisy environment or preferring to be in your own world in the gym. Since Apple just released the AirPods 3 (3rd generation), you may be wondering if they come with ANC technology. However, despite all the improvements including more compact size, longer battery life, and MagSafe-compatible charging case, AirPods 3 doesn’t support ANC.
That is to say, they can’t help you block out the background sounds. Besides, there’s no Transparency mode which enables you to hear the outside world when necessary. The AirPods 3 will get some passive noise cancellation simply by placing them in your ear canals, but don’t expect too much. The new AirPods neither come with silicone like AirPods Pro does nor foam ear tips, so they can’t sit further into your ears and create a good seal against the outside world.
The good thing is, AirPods 3 do have improvements in listening experience with spatial audio and Adaptive EQ, both of which are absent on the base level AirPods. If ANC feature means a lot to you, AirPods Pro and AirPods Max would be better for you. The former offer you a comparable listening experience, thanks to the ANC, the customizable silicone ear tips, and a special vent system that help reduce pressure during listening sessions. While as for AirPods Max, if the price tag is not a thing for you, ANC on them is the best in the entire industry.
