Like the rest of the company, Apple's wireless earbud teams have been busy! In this dual teardown video we'll be taking a look inside the Beats Fit Pro and AirPods 3 earbuds, and talking about the Spatial Audio feature that's new to the AirPods 3.

iFixit says that it is virtually impossible to not only replace the battery in either set of earbuds but that it is also almost impossible to put either earbud back together once you have opened them up.

As per usual with a lot of Apple products, iFixit has given both the 3rd generation AirPods and Beats Fit Pro a 0 out of 10 for a repairability score.
