Last week Apple introduced its new wireless headphones AirPods 3, and recently they started arriving to their customers. But things have not gone as smoothly as expected - the network has been flooded with complaints about terrible build quality.
According to buyers, the assembly of the headphones leaves a lot to be desired, and that's putting it mildly. The Chinese social network Weibo has already accumulated quite a few posts describing rough edges, spilled glue residue, and shaky parts in some devices. These not only spoil the appearance of the headphones, but and sometimes affect sound quality. And some even say that poor quality "earplugs" scratch your ears.
Most of the complaints come from AirPods 3, assembled in Vietnam. But blogger Kang assures that the problem is not limited to Vietnamese products - there are also problems with headphones assembled in China. He believes quality control is to blame.
But don't rush to change plans if you have already decided to buy AirPods 3. It seems that the problem was only with the first batch, yes and then only in China. At at least there are no complaints from residents of other countries yet.
