Apple’s AirPods lineup is growing just in time for the holiday season, making it even harder to determine which pair is right for you.

Last week, the tech giant released the third-generation AirPods, joining the Pro and the legacy second-generation AirPods as the company’s three flagship in-ear headphone products.

At $179, the third-generation model packs some pro-level features, including a much-improved audio experience and better durability, in a completely redesigned package.
